Happy birthday to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!!! She is celebrating her one year "Pink Saturday" birthday anniversary today and you must visit her blog to join in on all the pink fun! (Not to mention she has the most fabulous pink cake recipe that looks oh-so-good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
I have a very special Pink Saturday item to share today... It's a beautiful vintage hankie that I won in a giveaway late last year from sweet Nancy of My Crafty Little Page!
I was able to choose between a kitten or a puppy hankie, and the minute I saw the puppy I knew which one I wanted!
The hankie has a delicate scalloped border and is adorned with pansies. And the puppy reminded me so much of our sweet little Gizzy Girl, who we lost in March of last year.
She had blonde fur, big fluffy ears, and gorgeous brown eyes, just like the puppy on the hankie.
The hankie is the most gorgeous shade of peachy pink....
(I don't know why it looks yellow in this photo!)
I tried it out in several locations...
...before deciding to use it on the white tray that sits on an end table in our living room... I've also toyed with the idea of framing it so I can hang it somehwere.
Here's a photo of little Gizzy on the sofa, right next to where the hankie is sitting. (This was taken in her later years after she'd had one eye removed due to an infection, was blind in her remaining eye, and was getting insulin shots 2x a day... but look at the smile on her little face. She was a happy little troll dog until the day she left us.)
Having this little hankie displayed so prominently...
...is such a sweet reminder of our little angel.
