Christmas Memories, Old-Fashioned and Pink!

Welcome to another glorious Pink Saturday with our lovely host Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

My Christmas memories as a child were based on...

These included lots of old-fashioned Christmas music, such a strong memory of mine!
Music mainly by my favorite...

My sisters and Mom baked cookies in the kitchen and I was the baby of the family, so I'd eat the cookies and then sit on the couch dreaming of seeing Santa sneak into our living room to leave me presents like dolls and Barbies and rollerskates!

It was wonderful!
Yesterday (Friday) I braved the cold 40 degree temperatures here in Dallas, TX (What?!!) and went with my daughter to First Monday Trade Days in Canton...

Please ignore the red nose and multicolor layers I have on! I didn't have gloves with me and a booth sold these for $4.00, so there you go, blue gloves! And do you notice the lovely pink Christmas corsage I have on? It's part of my lovely package in my Christmas Swap that I recieved from Laura Ingalls Gunn
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you more of what I received, ok?! So cute!
Finally, I had to share this display in one of the booths at the Trade Days, a shirt for Pink Christmas, and oh, my gosh, what's up with that head?!! Too funny!


  1. well i certainly do love the pink on the shirt. happy holidays.....

  2. On this first Saturday of December ♥Jappy Pink Saturday♥. I was away for a while and sure missed running around the blogs arnd seeing all of the goodies everyone was sharing.

    Thanks for the memory...

    It was a blessing for you to make my morning so much fun. Hoping that you and those you care about spend a wonderful weekend making memories that will last a lifetime☺

  3. So jealous- haven't been to Canton in years, but my mother and I enjoyed it so much (too much, doubt the hubs wants me to go back ever) Happy PS! Love the snowman head pic.

  4. I love that tee-shirt and your blue gloves!!

    I spied one of Laura's corsages that I just feel in love with! You lucky girl!!!

    Have a "blue Christmas" oh, no, a PInK Christmas, oops, Saturday, now I have that Elvis song going through my head . . .


  5. Your blue gloves look just right. That is a stunning corgage. Elvis is such a classic for Christmas music. That snowman head is adorble. how cute. Pink Blessings!

  6. Suzie, what a cute corsage! I love that Laura. She's the best!

    And I am getting a kick out of that manequin. I, too, love Elvis, and I think he was a huge Christmas lover himself. I bet he'd a Pinky like us, too!

    Happy Pink Saturday...

  7. Isn't it great being the baby? I am too and it sure had it's advantages! Happy Pink Saturday!

  8. How lucky you were to be the baby of the clan. I love the pictures you've shared with us today, especially the blue gloves :-). I hope you are having a wonderful day.

  9. What a wonderful memory. Those blue gloves look great and fun to wear. Have a great weekend and please stop by and let me share a Christmas memory with you.
    Hugs and glitter, Patti

  10. cute memory..I love your corsage and the Pink Christmas t-shirt! Happy Pink Saturday Grace

  11. My mother has always loved Elvis, too. And, she baked delicious cookies. I used to bake a lot, too, but not so much now. If I bake it, I eat it. Ha!

    Canton must be great. I read so many go. Maybe one of these days I'll have to head west.

    Happy Pink Saturday, Suzie. I think you look beautiful.

  12. Oh, I just love Blue Christmas by Elvis~sigh.

    Your corsage looks great. I am so glad that you enjoyed your package. I am always nervous when I send one out.

    Blessings to you,

  13. Hi
    Suzie, I love going to Canton but was not as brave as you and have had the crud so home I sit. Thanks for sharing your childhood memories. Merry Christmas, Mollye

  14. Suzie! That is my favorite Christmas album! I am so jealous that you can go to Canton. It is one of my dream destinations. What fun!

  15. Happy Pink Saturday. I love the pink Christmas shirt. My sister and I went to Canton Trade Days one time, and we ended up buying gloves too, only ours were brown,
    for $4.00. We each bought a "cutter" quilt, and walked around with the quilts wrapped around us, it was so cold, but that didn't stop us from shopping!
