You might have thought with my notable absence these past few weeks that I would miss this special day. Not so! First, in honor of such a grand event, may I offer you my first rose of the season -
From my famous rose bush that still hosts the remains of last season's final rosebud (in the foreground) of which I waxed poetically in January, February, and March . . .
And, then - how could I pass up a chance to dress up in all my pink glory for Beverly's FIVE YEAR ANNIVERSARY hosting Pink Saturday each week in Blogland! I have been up to my ears in projects that have kept me away from you all and am taking some time this Memorial Day Weekend to do a little catching up. What better place to return to the blog-fray than our own Pink Saturday - and in this smashing pink hat!
Not to mention my thrift store pink jacket with shoulder pads for days . . .
And - lest we forget: A matching calico pink print skirt - all five yards of it - gathered over a hoop skirt . . .
All coming together in my 2013 period costume for this month's Founder's Day celebration in my hometown - celebrating 152 years of Vineland history - pictured here along with Jim the Piper-man who piped our Civil War re-enactors onto the grounds during our opening ceremonies!
Here, on Pink Saturday, we may only be celebrating a five year anniversary of kindred spirits and fellowship of all things pink and lovely, but I thought my 19th century ensemble just right for the occasion!
Thank you, Beverly, for hosting such a splendid weekly Blogland event - and for the opportunity to meet and make so many wonderful friends from far and wide! Expect to see more of me this summer - my busy is about to be done and some much needed R&R is on the horizon. This means that multitudes of posts are to come with all the news of all I've been up to these past couple of months!
Want a sneak peek?
Tune into live.ccvineland.org to see me performing in our Calvary Chapel Christian Theatre production that I also had the joy to co-write and co-direct: THE INVESTOR'S CHOICE
It's Psalm 23 set in an art gallery where the paintings come to life and challenge visitors to the gallery with the stories they tell - yes - a picture does paint a thousand words . . . and then some!
We stream live online - Click this link: live.ccvineland.org
Thursday, Friday, and Saturday,
May 30, 31, and June 1 at 7:00pm EST.
I'm very proud of the production and hope you'll tune in.
Sharing Happy Pink Saturday Birthday at Beverly's PINK SATURDAY at How Sweet the Sound.
