Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday. Hubby and I are in Beaver Creek for the weekend. We went to a fabulous fundraiser for CASA...(court appointed special advocates)....they have a silent auction every year to raise money. This year I won a fabulous gingerbread house. Every year I bid on one, and never seem to win. Well, this was my year. Here I am with the fabulous chef who made the house I won. (it was the first place house)....His name is Bernie Oswald, he is the chef at the Swiss Chalet in Vail. It is a wonderful fondue restaurant. He said this is the last year he is donating a house (he has won the past 7 years), because he is moving to Seattle. The house is beyond amazing. I will post more pictures when I get it home and can use my camera instead of my phone!! Be sure to stop by Beverlys at How Sweet the Sound. She is our wonderful hostess every week!!
Have a wonderful day.

Belated Pink Saturday

This post was supposed to be for Saturday, but I got busy and didn't get it done. I rec'd this beautiful angel from my Great Grandmother. I was only 10 when she passed away at the wonderful age of 98!! I believe this was a Christmas ornament, but I keep it on my dining room mirror year round. She has the most beautiful "angel hair" wings, and gorgeous pink satin and velvet ribbon body. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can see her praying hands. I love her.I hope you have a wonderful day.

Holiday Fair Table

I wanted to share a picture of the table I set up at the Holiday Fair!! Unfortunately it was not very successful. Very few people showed up, and hardly anyone bought anything. Oh and learn.I am going to have an open house at my home, and invite some friends over, hopefully they will want some of these sugary goodies.

We have a Winner

This week is starting out bad for us. Saturday we discovered we had a gas leak in our Guest House....Excel Energy came out, and said it was testing off the meter for gas, so they had to turn the power off. We didn't want our pipes to freeze, so we had to have a plumber come out and winterize the house, by blowing out all the water pipes. The Heating company is coming today to start digging up the backyard.....but we woke up with no heat in our main we called the Heating company back again, and they are sending someone out at some point today to fix the furnace. (of coarse the people who are fixing the gas leak can't fix the furnace)!! I have a feeling the trip we were planning to New York for a little getaway to see the lights is going to be cancelled. UGH! On a happier note we have a winner for my giveaway, and it is lucky number 17! Tammy, you have won. Tammy at Tinsel & Company is such a sweet friend, and I couldn't be happier to wrap up these goodies and send them on their way to her. I hope everyone has a wonderful week. I will post some pictures of my craft fair I was in.
