PINK Saturday - PINK Toilet Paper?

It's Friday night about 11:45 PM and tomorrow is PINK Saturday and I'm not ready..again!! I have lots of PINK things to show you but no photos - my husband and I where out all day playing and we had a good time!
So I searched the net for PINK bathrooms and here are some amazing photos. PINK toilet paper this roll is probably from the 50's - most company's stopped making colored toilet paper back then because doc's said it was bad for our skin.

Here's a pretty PINK toilet maybe I could plant some flowers in it.

These are the most beautiful dresses made from toilet paper!

Eight leading Canadian designers revealed a unique vision of a future without breast cancer, at the Fifth Annual White Cashmere Collection 2008: A Touch of Pink fashion show in Toronto.

Thank you, Patty from Attic Clutter

Patty from Attic Full of Clutter pulled my name from her followers to win this lovely pincushion! I received it over the weekend and I've already started using it for my needle felting needles and it's perfect!

This needle felted mouse "Betsy" is one of my newest creations.

Betsy is a little over 4" high, made of 100% wool and is wrapped in a needle felted flag. She used the flag to keep warm while watching fireworks on the 4th of July.

Betsy only needs to have her whiskers and she'll be ready for adoption.

Thanks again Patty. All my needles fit on this large pinchusion and they are very handy when I'm working.

Warm wishes,

Stephen Foster Festival Photos

Where has this week gone! I've been wanting to post this all week and kept forgetting. My DH and I attended the Stephen Foster Festival last Saturday and had a wonderful relaxing day.

The festival was held at Allegheny Cemetery where Stephen Foster is buried. Foster was born in Pittsburgh on July 4, 1826 and died January 13, 1864 at age 37 from a severe fall in New York City. Some of the songs he composed are: Oh! Susanna, Camptown Races, Nelly Bly, Old Folks at Home, My Old Kentucky Home and Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair. Just a little history lesson!

This flag is for the 9th Infantry Penna Reserve Corp
This couple is with Allegheny Minstrels and re-create the music of the 19th century in historically correct costume.

This group of ladies are with Voices of Confederacy a Civil War Living History Group.
There primary mission is to educate the public on the history of the
Ware for Southern Independence.

We sat on the grass and enjoyed the music of Home Front.
They represent those who served the war efforts from home.

I believe this group is with the 9th Infantry.

Beautiful and cooling fountain.

Ship's Company is a living history group dedicated to the preservation of the
American maritime heritage.
Check out those socks!

I'm not sure who this is but he is kinda cute!

Steven Collins Foster

The lady in the yellow top is Bell a confederate spy.

Oh and here is Abe Lincoln.
Lincoln quote: "Your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing."

We sat on the grass and listened to the music and ate our lunch. Next year we will have to bring our chairs. Hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Warm wishes,
