Sweet Pink

Happy Sweet Pink Saturday!

It's such a pleasure to start the day with Pink Saturday posts, the Pink Saturday Links found on Beverly's, How Sweet The Sound are entertaining and insightful!

I love getting to know the participants of this blog party and I look forward to visiting different Pink Saturday blogs every week, for sweet stories, sweet eats and and super sweet crafts. Last week Jacqueline, at Purple Chocolate Home posted a wonderful and delicious recipe for Chocolate Bread with Pink sugar! If you didn't get the chance to visit her blog, I recommend it, you will be delighted!

Last month I was very fortunate to be able to travel to San Francisco for a trip to visit my sister and surprise my daughter, Gabrielle. It was so fun! Gabrielle and I spent an afternoon at Japantown. It's one my favorite places, as you might have read on an earlier post. While we were there, I was thrilled to meet these two charming and sweet Lolita's walking in the courtyard! I, of course had to have a picture with these two cuties!

Lolita fashion is so fun. It's a very feminine look with lots of bows and ribbons and Pink!

This outfit is a creation by Angelic Pretty. There are so many darling ribbon bows and ruffles on this dress! The pink shoes are a must with this frilly dress.

Another cute Lolita outfit to dress up in!

If you are thinking of an event to have to wear these pretty pink frocks, think no more. The perfect place to go dressed so sweet is.......................................................................................

The Ice Cream Parlor!

Amy Moss has posted the sweetest DIY Ice Cream Parlor ideas and has downloads and links to host a sensational Ice Cream Extravaganza...all in Pink! If you go for a visit, please leave me a comment and let me know what you think!

Now before you leave, the winner of the "The Funky Flower Charm" offered last week is my wonderful sewing friend, Staci! She has a fun blog to visit, it features fabulous photographs of her amazing fabric and sewing projects called A Vintage Fairytale.

I hope you have had a sweet pink visit today, I'm sure glad you came by!


  1. Absolutely love the name of your blog!

  2. Such pretty pinks and I love the ice cream parlor! Happy Pink Saturday to you!


  3. I love your blog; the colors are so beautiful and the background is so inviting. I had no idea there was such a thing as a Lolita. Do they really dress like that or is it just for getting attention on the boardwalk or something. You know, like how they dress up as spiderman and others in Hollywood??? They are so cute and I love the clothes. Of course you can guess I just love the Ice Cream Parlor. I am truly an Ice Cream person. I love it:-) Thanks for stopping by.

    Hope you had an awesome Pink Saturday and a blessed week ahead!

    Warm Regards, CindyLew
