Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! James, Maggie, Lucie, and I got to spend the day together and it was a wonderful day! My favorite part of the day was the church service that morning because it was so special and beautiful and uplifting. We went to my mom's for lunch (and dinner) and had a nice time visiting with family and hiding eggs for the girls. I hope you all enjoyed your time together as well! I wanted to share the amazing match box that Marti at Artful Curiosities sent me recently. We participated in a match box swap sponsored by Laura Ingalls Gunn and she was my partner. I wanted you to see how beautiful her creation was and how generous she was in filling it for me.

I was so excited when I got the box and began to unwrap it. I tried my best to be patient but I will filled with anticipation and excitement.

Beneath the brown packing material lay this beautiful, amazing creation!

It was filled to the brim with the most delicate, lovely, sweet items . . .

and I can't wait until I have the time to play with every single one of them!

Marti really outdid herself and I am so thankful for her generosity and her amazing creative ability.

My sweet mama's birthday was on Wednesday and I made her a sweet tin box filled with some pretty egg ornaments I painted. I bought the tin at a garage sale for 10 cents! I have 3 more to decorate and can't wait to get started!

I covered the box with scrapbook paper, trim, and flower embellishments. Isn't it lovely?I filled the box with pink basket filler and 6 sweet eggs I painted. I hope she enjoys this sweet gift. I had a lot of fun making it just for her.

I hope you all enjoy this lovely Pink Saturday and the rest of your weekend! Thanks to Beverly for hosting another great event. It is so much fun to see so many beautiful, amazing, talented women out there! Thank you for visiting here today. Please leave me a comment if you have the time!

Blessings to you!

Love Tammy

    You and James and the girls all look stunning for Easter!! I had to work the whole weekend so it was a bit of a hectic Easter for me but I still did dinner for my family.
    I saw what you made for your Mom for her birthday on her blog and now on yours. So very pretty!!
    And the matchbox you were gifted was incredible with all of it's beauty both inside and out!!

  9. Hi Tammy,
    What a beautiful family you have! I can tell you had a marvelous Easter!

    Your creation is just beautiful and so is the matchbox you received. I have never tried making one, but I think I will have to try....When I do, I will send you the result and I hope you will send me your first cookies or cupcakes!

  10. Our Easter started with a beautiful sunrise service on Tampa Bay, right on the water looking East toward the sunrise. Then family get together later in the day with baskets and grands searching for eggs. Thank you for asking. Such a beautiful family you have. Your daughters are beautiful and looks so lovely in their Easter best. The match box you received is truly creative work of art as well as the lovely box and eggs you lovingly made for your mom's birthday. Love those decorated eggs. Blessings.
