~Pink Saturday~my Sourthen Belle pillowcases~




Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly.
Today I'm showing off my pink Southern Belle pillowcases..
I've hand embroider them.
I found the unfinished pillowcases at a thrift shop for $2.00.
How I love to embroider!
My Italian Grandmother Lena taught me how to embroider
when I was 8 years old, it's stuck with me all these years.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Mary I need to come back and have a serious look around. What a wonderful blog.

Thank you for putting me in your prayers Mary. I appreciate and believe in them.

Mary, I would like to transport that whole bed and bedding set, actually just send me the room with the pink pillowcases. My granddaughter is going to be 2 and she would love it. No, really, though it is gorgeous.

On a serious note, I saw that your daughter has passed on. I am sorry. Very sorry.

Love Renee

OH MY, I just love them. You know I have almost the same looking pillow cases that my grandmother started and never finished them. I'm not very good at embroidering. She even has the pink ruffle on them. I hope some day I'll will get them done some how. Love your bedroom. Cheri

The pillow cases are absolutely gorgeous!!!
The room is so beautiful. Whenever I finally settle down; maybe when I turn 60; I will have a red and/or green day or better "a jewel tone day." You know, I do not think I have anything pink anymore; no fabric or anything : ) I guess I am not a pink person
: )
Thank goodness you are my friend regardless : )
Peace

Hi Mary! Your pillowcases are beautiful with your exquisite embroidery work! Love your very pretty pink bedroom too!

Mary, I just want to let you know that my heart is breaking for Becky, her husband and younger son. Oh Mary, this is just such a very tragic and devastating loss. I will be keeping her and her family in my prayers daily and have stopped by her blog.

Much Love and Hugs to you sweet friend~Carol Anne
