Happy, happy Pink Saturday!

Hello Pink Saturdayers (ha, my own word)!!!!  For this PS I thought I would share a wonderful swap that I recently participated in -  Summer Roses Swap - at Etsy Cottage Style.  I adore swaps as you usually get some awesome goodies!  My partner was the lovely Viviana and you can click  here to view her beautiful Etsy shop.  She has the most amazing goodies, some of which she included in the swap.

Some awesome scrap booking goodies ~ tags, borders, charms...
A beautiful hand-crafted card...

The pink card in the upper right-hand corner is hand-crafted by her.  I also receive some great rose decals, vintage lace, and other beautiful papers...
Check out this beautiful rose hand-sewn cover for the journal she included..,


Another view of the lovely goodies...

Of course I forgot to take pictures of what I sent her until I had it all wrapped up and ready to go.  I placed all of her goodies in a white enamelware tray and included pink millinery flowers, hand-built (by moi) pink clay roses, Lavender Room spray, pretty cards and tags, and more.  I also like to "top-off" my swaps with a pink be-jeweled "Create" ornament.

I though I'd leave you this week with some pretty pictures of some pretty pink Lily Flowers that I purchased at the supermarket.  They were (sadly they have now passed) absolutely gorgeous!  There is nothing like fresh flowers and I always try to have some in the house.

Don't forget to visit Beverly at http://www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ to view the participating blogs this week.
Have a wonderful weekend!  Stop by next week as I am having a give-a-way and you don't want to miss out!  I am sooooo excited!

Big hugs,
Jacalyn

What a sweet swap! Love your treasures. The flowers were beautiful too. It's so sad to watch them wilt away though, isn't it?

Hello Jacalyn,
WoW! I love your blog! The self-talk article is very interesting. I am posting late for Pink Saturday....I've been dragged down with a horrible summer cold.
I am going to be a follower.
Hugs, Laura
