Pink Saturday #6, Pink Candles

Welcome to this week's Pink Saturday. Bev at How Sweet the Sound is our gracious hostess. I want to thank her for taking the time to organize this every week as she sends out a multitude of emails to confirm each blog's participation, and then puts all those links together. I hope everyone will join me in thanking her for making all this pink fun possible!

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.

By the way, I got my mammogram results back this week and everything is A-Ok. Whew! That's so very good to know!

Here's to all things pink!

I like the candle display--especially the pink and green striped labeled one!

LOL "pulls the wrinkles down out of my face" So THAT's why my face looks so young when I'm at home! lol

Congrats on winning Justine's award. I visited her blog last night and read about it.

Thanks for the Kady award. I've clicked, so I accept it.

Justine said...

Ooh, I love your candles, especially because they're pink and not rose scented. Have you noticed that most pink candles are? Blech! Ooh, I'm taking this pink button with me. Well, not your thanks, but the actual linky button is what I want to add to my blog. Is that okay?

Justine :o )

Hi Kady,
The pink posts are of course my fav's! The candles are lovely and I wouldn't open the ones with Hugs on them either! Diana Lyn's candles are so wonderful, I still have the Orange Cake one going today, all day, and my house smells like fall!

Donna Lynn
P.S. Don't have as big of "you know whats", but...I love taking my bra off at night too! I have had a terrible time finding bras that fit right, so I was pretty excited to find 3 at TJ Maxx two weeks ago on my storewide treasure hunt! 36 DDDD is a weirdo size for sure!!!!

Very cute *pink* candles! (P.S. I saw one of your more recent posts, I've also had the horror of living in a house where bats could get in! Not a pleasant experience at all, but then neither is dog poop on the ceiling! tee hee!)

Joy said...

The Hugs & Kisses candle set is so adorable. And congrats on your test results!
