I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Pink Saturday And Septembers Blog Give A Way

Short and sweet this week. I thought I would start the month out with September's give a way. Just leave me a comment for a chance to win this pincushion, link back to my blog with your blog for a second chance (just let me know that you have done this) and you are ready to go. I hope you enjoy this week and Happy Pink Saturday. Thankyou to Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this all possible every week for us to enjoy each others company. Please be sure to visit as many pinkie bloggers as you can.
A little silver teapot charm and faux pearls in roses, so charming and useful too. Three handmade pins are also included. Perfect for keeping, or giving to someone special that loves to sew or quilt.

There are also seashells that I have given a little glitter to for some added bling. Good luck! I want to wish all of you a very happy Pink Saturday and a wonderful week ahead.
This week Beverly asked us all to link back to another blog. I have chosen Leann from The Old Parsonage. Please stop by and leave her some pink sweetness.

That is a darling pink cushion, and since I've been sewing since I was 15, oh, about 50 years ago, I've seen a lot of them, but this one is adorable! Love the teapot charm! Have a happy pink Saturday...I'll try to remember to link your blog in my post...I was going to do that for someone else, and have completely forgotten who it was!

I love these pin cushions. Everyone does their's a little different from the other and that is the delight in seeing them all. It is nice to see everyone's individual creativity. I have been a crafter for 69 years and made my first fancy skirt for the little girl next door out of a ruffled pillow cover my grandmother was going to throw away.
