I can hardly believe another year has passed........  where does the time go?
This time of year is for reflection.  I am thankful for my family, my health and my many blessings.

While re-arranging one of the bedrooms I found an old hat box tucked away under the bed.  I hadn't had it out in a long time and had forgotten what was inside.  What a nice surprise.....  it was full of old photos, cards and tid bits from the past.  Pictures of the kids when they were little, black and whites photos of my parents (gosh! they were young), pictures of my wedding day and cards my husband and family have given me over the years.  A box full of wonderful memories.

I found several more boxes full of things I've collected over the years.  All wrapped in tissue paper and packed away so carefully.  I am quite the collector.  I love old things!  and I love Pink!
My style is very feminine.  I love old lace, ruffles, ribbonwork, tulle and millinery flowers.
I have such fun shopping the flea markets and antique shops.  I found some lovely things this year.......  and thought I would share some of my favorites.  
  
Happy Holidays and many blessings!
Elizabeth

Happy Pink Saturday, Elizabeth. I am so glad you joined us, and I hope you will do so often. Your thumbnail got the most clicks last weekend, and is being featured in my post this weekend.

Thank you for sharing your joy, your memories, and your lovely vintage treasures.
