On to my contribution for this week. As much as I love pink, I can't believe I don't have more pink candles. I found this darling set at a local Hallmark type store in the deep clearance rack. I got 70% off and I think I only paid about $2.50 for them. I haven't even taken them out of the packaging because I think it's 90% of the appeal! That little pink container in the middle with the ampersand holds matches. They're too pretty to light!
This next strawberry and kiwi scented candle was a gift from my sister-in-law and my brother as part of a housewarming gift. I just love the pink and green stripes!
This little stack of candles is from Diana Lynn of Candles from the Heart, and I won the "boobie prize" in her last giveaway, but I feel like I won the grand prize because the scent of these candles is to die for! I don't even take them out of the baggie, but the smell just fills my bedroom. So heavenly! There were more candles in the prize package, but these are the pink ones.
I received a new award tonight from Justine at Justine's Froggy Bloggy and I am so honored to get this award. She has one of the funniest blogs out there. Just for an example, the first blog post of hers that I left a comment on was a blog about how good it feels to take your bra off at the end of the day! So funny. I introduced myself by telling her that as a woman who is very generously blessed in that area, as I get older, the thing I like best about taking my bra off is that it pulls the wrinkles down out of my face. Heh. Anyhow, Tiney is bold and brassy, tells it like it is, and has one of the biggest hearts out there. I am proud to be one of her friends!
I have an award to give too, a pink award! I talked about it in an earlier post. I'm posting it again for more exposure. It isn't your usual award like a friendship award, but I feel so strongly about woman being able to get their yearly tests, even if they don't have insurance and can't afford their pap tests and mammograms. By simply clicking on the very top graphic on the right sidebar, you can get to a site where you click once more, and it gives money (no, not yours) so that someone can get a free mammogram. I know, I am like a broken record here, but it is the easiest and coolest thing to do to possibly save someone's mother, sister or friend's life. If you have clicked, whether on my blog or somewhere else, please take the award below as my thanks to you.
Here's to all things pink!
