Saturday night was Prom night for my neice...and I think "pink" looks so pretty on her! It is her senior year and I think of how much fun she will have looking back on the pictures of a very special evening.
Draped over a white wicker rocking chair in our bedroom, is this meticulously created "pink" dogwood quilt that my sweet grandma made for my mother, years ago. I enjoy having it in our room, serving as a constant reminder of one very dear lady in my life. I remember her having it in a quilt stand in her living room, and her working tirelessly on it, whenever she had a free moment.
"Pink" just isn't any cuter than this, from a grandma's point of view. Two precious granddaughters on Mother's Day 2009.
Many, many years ago on the farm where my grandparents lived, feed would be delivered on a routine basis. The feed was for the chickens raised on the farm. The feed came in cotton bags made out of colorful fabric, with varied designs. My grandma would sew dresses for my mother out of the empty feed sacks. These pillow are sewn from the saved leftover fabric of the feed sacks from long ago. I am amazed at how nice the fabric looks after so many years. She saved a box of all her leftover feed sacks because they were too pretty to discard. The "pink" on these pillows also serve as a reminder of my wonderful grandma, and all that she taught me in her lifetime.
