Just a few of our Christmas things up close and personal. I’ll be sharing a few more in the near future.
I shared a story earlier in December about our church Toy Shop Project for needy families in our community. Our church was able to help 315 families with grocery gift cards and toys for their children. We had over 2000 new toys that we gave away. Our goal was 1800. What a wonderful experience to be able to share in this way in our own community.
I’m so thankful for a quiet week leading up to Christmas. How are your days?
For my third Pink Saturday I’m combining Pink with my love of all things Beatrix Potter. I started my collection of Beatrix Potter figurines in 1973 while in England. I’ve picked out 3 of my 27 figurines. These three have pink on them and I am sharing the book they come from and an excerpt from the book.
The first figurine is of “Flopsy, Mopsy, and Cottontail” from The Tale of Peter Rabbit.
Next is “Hunca Munca” from The Tale of Two Bad Mice
The third figurine I’m sharing is “Goody Tiptoes” from The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes
Happy Pink Saturday everyone. Hope you enjoyed a little of my Beatrix Potter Collection. To see more Pink Saturday Posts visit our gracious hostess Beverly at How Sweet the Sound…
Photobucket is holding all my photos from 2007-2015 hostage on their site and have replaced my photos with black and grey boxes of ugliness. I’m slowly deleting those boxes from my blog and trying to update so many posts, very frustrating.
