I have one male who reads my blog and it isn't my husband. My hubby thinks the computer is for playing poker and doing the billing at work. Typing an email makes him so stressed; I usually have to take over. Once in awhile, I'll read him something I have wrote here. I don't think my sons read my blog. My one male blog reader is not exactly into dainty knick knacks. His home is probably not full of pink things. He's a tall cowboy who knows that real men can wear pink and has a pink shirt to prove it. He's much more comfortable around these four legged pink animals.
We've been friends for a very long time and he likes to keep up with my life by reading my blog. Some times I've been known to bore him to death with my tales of hunts for pink treasure. I've come to accept that his boredom with my pink obsession is not a fatal flaw but a character deficit. Hah! But, he has totally redeemed himself. When he asked me if I would like some of his late mother's treasures, I wasted no time in answering!
A box arrived in the mail and I couldn't wait to unwrap it. Look at these beautiful treasures.
A cup and saucer with pale pink flowers. Dainty little salt and pepper shakers with pink cherry blossoms. Hankie after hankie covered with beautiful flowers.
I never met his mother, but I know after looking through her hankie collection that she must have loved flowers as much as I do.
So, this week's Pink Saturday is dedicated to my friend. I will treasure your mother's treasures for you. I've even tucked a hankie in my purse. Thank you.
For lots more posts by women who are also obsessed with pink, be sure to go visit Beverly's Pink Saturdays. And thank you Beverly. Without Pink Saturday, maybe those treasures would have never made it to my home.
