"I BELIEVE IN PINK! I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles."— Audrey Hepburn

“To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Every night, friends. You have done what you could. Let it go.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

 Now, for my contribution to Pink Saturday...As you all know I am blessed by just being here...I was diagnosed in 1995 with stage II Triple Negative Breast Cancer( before we even knew what that was)...That same year the Longaberger company started their Horizon of Hope basket campaign... 
A few years later I bought my first one...when I found out that the first one came out in 1995...well...you ladies know what happened next...that's right, I did what any other self respecting little pink shopper would do...I hunted the others down!!I have all of them now and I am about to show you! Yes, I am...
There is the entire collection..minus the one I just received...Aren't they pretty? There is even a travel mug there in the front...lol...

Here are two pictures of the 2011 HOH basket and the potpourri basket also..and they just happen to be sitting on top of the scarf they offer this year...yes, I bought that too...did you doubt it?

Here we have a few more cuties in the Horizon of Hope Line. (please ignore the dust)..Yes, they see me coming....But it is for a good cause after all...they have raised a lot of money for the American Cancer Society over the years for Breast Cancer Research.
I am just throwing this young lady in because I picked her up while I was on vacation in June...and she has a pink hat and a pink purse and I like her...
So...that is my Pink Saturday...Enjoy! And be sure to click through and comment for a good cause...
Thanks so much!

  19. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on Just a BeachKat. I thought your blog was so pretty, colorful, and charming. I love pink too! In fact, we did a Pink Post recently called 'A Glorious Color.' I noticed the hummingbird with the pink rose. I have to tell you...hummingbirds hold a special place in my heart for so many reasons, and it made me smile when I saw it. Me and my daughters just started a new blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you and seeing all your pink wonderful ideas. Hope to hear from you and have a sweet day.
