Tickled Pink

I was invited to join Pink Saturday at How Sweet The Sound. You just have to post about something pink.  I love linky parties!  Here are a few pictures of the pink stuff that I own.  I also have a very lovely, red-headed, 4-legged assistant who goes by the name of Ruby who just had to show off her pink scarf. 

Some of my other favorite pink items are the quilts that my grandmother made and gave to me. I love the pattern on the first quilt. I don't know what the pattern is called but I know it takes a lot of time to create. She gave me the quilt that has the little girls in bonnets for my bridal shower. Unfortunately, she died a week before I got married. This was the last gift she ever gave me. It is a very special quilt for me.

The final picture is my cupcake charm.  My friend bought me a Juicy Couture charm bracelet for my 30th birthday.  I got this little cupcake charm from my in-laws for Christmas. 


  1. Oh my. I just love your quilts. IIRC, the pattern of your first on is Grandmother's Flower Garden. Happy Pink Saturday!

  2. Happy Pink Saturday and Welcome.

    Its always fun to see new ppl posting something in pink.

    Hope you will join us more often.

    P.S. I love your dog. She is really cute.

  7. A hearty welcome to Pink Saturday. I just got involved beginning last week, and it is such fun. I know you will love being a part of such a great blog party.

    Ruby is SOOO beautiful!!! Love the pink kerchief.

    Your quilts are gorgeous, and, yes, I would imagine the one is especially treasured in your eyes since it was the last gift from your grandmother. I'm sure there was much love in every single stitch.

    Well, I hope you have a lovely day,
    Patti (Fill My Cup with Beauty)

  8. Hi Melissa.. and welcome to Pink Saturday..
    Your quilts are just gorgeous..the first pattern is called Grandmothers Flower Garden, and the second is my favorite pattern of all time..she's Sunbonnet Sue. These are such wonderful treasures..and I'm so sorry you lost your sweet grandmother. Her love for you remains in every stitch in those beautiful quilts..the small quilts I made for each of my grandchildren..had love and hugs in each stitch, and I know yours do as well.
    Happy Pinks and have a lovely weekend.

  9. Welcome to pink saturday! I love both the quilts and it makes them so much more special to be from your grandmother. Love your helper too!! Happy pink week!

  10. Such a cute charm. Pretty quilts with a sad story, yet how nice to have something so tangible to remember her by!

  11. Welcome to Pink Saturday. I see others have given you the pattern names for your quilts. They are beautiful and such a special treasure. Ruby is so sweet in her pink scarf. I hope you enjoy being a part of Pink Saturday.

  12. How nice to meet you and Welcome to Pink Saturday.
    I love Ruby in her pink thing about labs is they always seem to have a smile on their dear faces....I guess you can tell I am a Lab lover....ours were black. No matter what the color they are a wonderful breed!

    I had a quilt like your first one that my grandmother made, too....she called it Grandmother Flower Garden. She made it out of her old house dresses, Grandpa old shirts and pj's and any other worn out but suitable clothing. It, believe it or not, was very pastel and very pretty.....I wish it had lasted.
    Hope you will come say "Hi"...

  13. Welcome to Pink Saturday...Ruby too. I think your quilts are gorgeous and love the sun bonnet sue. I am not sure if that is the right name, but she is perfect. Also the cupcake bracelet. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  14. Awwww give a pat on the head to Ruby (stop by my blog & meet another dog lover). Welcome to Pink Saturday. It's loads of fun!

  15. Love your quilts, your charm, but most of all, I love your helper, Miss Ruby! She's a sweetie!

    Welcome to Pink Saturday, and I hope you'll post with us again. May yours be especially happy!

  16. Your Grandma's quilts are beautiful! Welcome to PS.

  17. Welcome to PS! I think my favorite "shade" of pink is well, Ruby, ha! Love her bandana too! I am now following you so I can come see more pink!

    Happy PS,

  18. We have one thing in common. Love for quilts. I have one like both of yours. In fact, I just recently got one like your Sunbonnet Sue in the same colors from a relatives estate. I plan on featuring it soon on Pink Saturday. Enjoyed your post.

  19. Happy Pink Saturday!! I love your pretty quilts!

  20. Welcome to PS and I do love your quilts as I do quilting. That is a treasure for you to keep in the family for years to come I'm sure.

  21. Hello, welcome to Pink Saturday! Gorgeous quilts!

    Happy Pink Saturday, warmest, Brenda

  22. Welcome to Pink Saturday, so glad that you are joining in on all the pinklicious fun!

    Your quilts are so lovely. I have one similar to your sunbonnet girl quilt that my Mom made for me.

    Your little doggie looks quite happy to get in on the show.


  23. Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Melissa. I am glad you decided to participate.
