Happy Pink Saturday Friends!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!

Today is my second post for Bev's Pink Saturday, and one for which I've been preparing since last week. And, I have the cutest little things to show you. 'Sure hope you like them.

These baby booties are just perfect for a little gift to meet a new baby and bring to the new Mom. The pattern is from my former mother-in-law who was an exceptional knitter. She taught me how to make these "kick-off-proof" booties, and many members of my family were recipients over the years. I've made these in several baby colors including blue, mint green, yellow... but for Pink Saturday, these had to be (what else but) pink. The card is made using a digital image from Isabella's Sketchbook... and lots of pink, of course. I'm always in the mood for something French...isn't this the cutest image?? (p.s...  if you don't see posts from me for a while it's probably because I ran away to France...don't put it past me!).

I'm thinking that these need to go to my Etsy shop so I can spread a little baby love around.  Whatcha think?

Hope you like them... I'd love to know.

Happy Pink Saturday...  and until next time.. be safe in all you do.

Welcome to your 2nd PS - so glad to see you're hanging on in there, lol. Only 202 to visit this week (although I've only made it all the way a couple of times - I just do as many as I can before my shoulder gives out on me). Those bootees are adorable, and I think there'll be a lot of ladies asking for the secret 'non-kick' ingredient.

Happy Pink Saturday from the UK!

These are adorable Peggy and the card too - I think they'll do well on Etsy. I just got a new pattern for crocheted booties I'm going to be making for the shop here and can't wait! And if you're going to France, I'm going with you - oooooh to be at the Paris flea market!! Hugs and Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday!
Such sweet little pink booties....takes me waaaaay back to when my dear Grandma taught me to knit for my little ones.....I don't think we make them "kick off" proof, tho.
Hope you put them in your Etsy shop. They will make some little feet happy!

Happy Pink Saturday Peggy...
I was out last week so I missed your first PS post. Welcome to the pinkest of pink worlds. We are so thrilled you joined us.

I love your pink booties, they are so beautiful. The idea that you would add them to your shop, please do soon. I need a blue pair before June approaches. I have a little grandson coming via c-section. I would love a little pair for him.

The card is so precious. I love the addition of the beautiful little pearls. So pretty. Great job sweetie.

I am your newest follower. I can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
