Thank you Beverly for hosting a day for celebrating PINK/ANYTHING GOES. We have lots choices to share with all the Pinkies out there in Blogland.
Be sure and go to 'How Sweet the Sound to visit everyone who joins in the fun on Pink Saturday.
OUR TRIP TO MICHIGAN TO SEE AUNT SHIRLEY AND UNCLE BILL
My sister, her daughter and I are driving to MI on Monday morning for two weeks. Our main purpose is to visit family. We will visit Aunt Shirley and Uncle Bill. Aunt Shirley is the last of my mothers sisters that is still alive. Both of them are 89 years old. She still sells antiques. She is known as the button lady. When she buys buttons, it can be a collection that could cost $10,000. Her buttons are amazing and many are very valuable. They live in a beautiful Victorian home in a small town where they have spent their life together for 67 years of marriage.
Our plans include two mini family reunions where we will get together with both sides of our family. We will see many of our cousins and their children and grand children. We will also visit our niece who lives farther North in MI. All in all it will be a very busy two weeks. Also, lots of photo opps.

Can you see why buttons are so collectible?
When I am in Mi I am going to look at some of her button creations and perhaps buy some. Can't wait.
Happy Pink Saturday
Blessings and love,
