Now most of you know I have to order
both Halloween and Christmas items in January
for our Gift Store.
Perusing all of the wholesale catalogs along
with my gift shop magazine, I noticed
lots and lots of items in pink.
Little did I know back in January that the
Barbie movie would come out just before adding
in my Fall and Halloween decor.
Am not a fan of pink,
but I need to attract everyone into the store,
which forces me to get me out of my comfort zone.
I even crocheted pink pumpkins.
I also created black pumpkins with pink noses.
Plus this pink ghost.
in white, pink and orange.
More orange and pink pumpkins.
Pink pumpkins with black noses.
I only did this small area of pink,
but it has been a hit.
Glad I forced myself to purchase
items in this color.
Did you add pink to your Halloween decor?
At home I did not.
Prim is not pink.
In other news,
today is my mom's birthday.
She is a young 89.
Am so thankful to still have her with us.
I spent the night with her last night.
I treated her to a birthday dinner and breakfast.
My dad died when I was 35,
30 years ago.
My mom was only 58 at the time.
She was never interested in meeting another man.
I took half a day off yesterday,
and she and I spent the afternoon travelling
around to all of the cemeteries where my
relatives are buried.
I am planning on taking on a big
challenge next year,
and I need all of my past relatives birthdates.
More on that later on.
Bob's progress on our redo is coming along now.
He has one wall almost complete now.
This was a big undertaking that we decided to do...
and he is doing all of the work on the two days
off a week he has.
Pink Blessings To All!
