Pink Saturday

This is my first time participating in the Pink Saturday group and I'm very excited to be a part of it. I'm sorry that I'm a little late posting but we were in Tucson and just got back at 10:30 A.M. local time. My first photo is a vignette from my old house that includes a reproduction doll, a trunk full of goodies and a hat with pink flowers. I still have all of this stuff, but it is not displayed in my new house.I have an extensive hankie collection and I'm including two hankies that my mother gave to me. Her name is Sarah hence the S's.
My mother used to knit and crochet almost everyday and she won 3rd. prize for this elephant at the Arizona State Fair.
This baby planter is one of several that I have. I needed some planters for my daughter's baby shower, so I now have several tucked away hoping to use them for my second grandchild.

The hankies are precious and what a special thing to have the crocheted elephant that your mother made. It is really charming. :o)
