Happy Mother's Day to you all!


    I decided busy or not I could not let another Saturday go without visiting with my pink friends. I thought this one is extra special since we are about to celebrate God's gifts to human kind, our precious moms.  Let me introduce to you all Ms Marta senior. She is 70 years young and in top health. She is the reason I am who I am. I received from a very young age the most important gift any mom can give her kids, the knowledge of God. I remembered her message was simple enough, Papa God loves you and Papa God is crying when we got in trouble. Later on in live I have learn and experience a deeper relationship with My Savior but she was the one that instilled this love and obedience towards our God from a very early age.  She was everybody's mama, since our home was the gathering place for all the neighborhood kids. They all called her mama, I don't think they new her real name. She endured many years of a hard marriage to my dad, always  taught us to honor and respect our dad, even when he many times didn't deserve it. I realize later in life that she did it for us. To this day we can talk about those days without remorse and regrets knowing we were never disrespectful or rebellious toward him. I know she had said countless prayers and that God have listen and spare us. So Mama, today I celebrate and honor you. I love you and hope I get to celebrate countless more with you.
           By the way, the little cowboy is Neithan. He is doing much better, thanks for your prayers.
                       For Pink Saturday I want to show you some of my little pink dresses. No, I don't have a daughter, I just like to display and collect them.
                         I love the organza skirt with the little rosettes. It is a faded pink color.
                                            The back of it remind me of a wedding gown.
                         This one is so pretty too. Love the lace. It got the cutest sash.
     Love the cute apron. I got it at the store at one point and I decided I could not part with it.
    This little beauty I found at City Wide for a dollar. It was so dirty and wrinkle I wasn't sure it can be safe. TLC does wonders.

You have seen this before. Another one I have to bring home from the store.

Can you blame me for keeping all this stuff?.


Last I have to show you this crocheted pieces. I'm not into crochet, but all crochet is not created equal. There is crochet ugly and good crochet. I think this two are good crochet, what do you think?

I was going to post photos of about 10 new pink hats, that would have make this post too long. I will do that next week for PS since the hats are mostly pink flowered ones. Until then my friends go and visit the other pink girls. You can find a list of participants @ Ms. Beverly's  How sweet the sound blog. Happy Mother's Day to you all!!!!! Marta.

What a wonderful tribute to your sweet mother!
I adore your pink dresses. I saw some cute dresses at Salvation army a few weeks ago and thought what in heaven am I going to do with them ( 2 boys all grown)and i remembered something I saw on some blog. I bought two cute infant dresses , came home and dressed my Teddy Bears in them, made them each little headband with a rose and didn't they look cute!! I will be doing a post on them soon!
HPS!

I don't blame you for keeping all these beautiful things! The aprons are just precious, so delicate looking. That little cowboy is looking much better after his ordeal, I hope he continues to improve, the precious little buckaroo!

How sweet to hear myself referred to as a kid! I am actually turning 36 next month. I guess that's slowly working it's way toward middle age! Thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you have a wonderful day with a little pink sprinkled somewhere in the mix!

Hi, Marta,
I loved this beautiful tribute to your sweet mom. She taught you many important lessons from a very early age. I enjoyed seeing all your pretty pink dresses. I would have a hard time parting with them, too. I am so glad Neithan is feeling much better. He is a cutie with that big smile. Have a very happy week, kind friend~ Vicki
