How fun to join PINK SATURDAY
     on such a wonderful occasion! 
                  Happy Birthday

!http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/




Good morning all you pink ladies
My first picture is of my youngest granddaughter!
There's nothing cuter than a smile waiting for breakfast. And checkout all that hair!




This picture is of her older sister on her 2nd birthday
 (she will be 12 next week!) 



The beautiful woman above in pink to the left is my grandmother who passed away at 97.
The little one in her lap is my oldest granddaughter who was  4 when this was taken 10 years ago. 
What a blessing to have a picture of five generations!


For my first Pink post I want to share a room I painted for our 
oldest granddaughter when she was about 5. 
 Our son is a single dad who has full custody of his daughter 
While she was little she had her own room 
at gma and gpa's house.







Our granddaughter loves poetry and had memorized this in 1st grade for a competition.



The window to her dream world was 4 foot across.



The wall above was painted a light pink then I used a foam board to make the diamonds. Believe me when I say the accent pink of the diamonds was the brightest pink I have ever seen!
I accented the windows with a boa valance.  She didn't need a closet so we took off the doors and painted it a sky blue, put in a couple of shelves for her favorite books and a desk.  I painted the words imagine, create and dream in the sky above the shelves. To finish off the opening I put up a tension rod and hung white sheers pulled back with ribbon.

She loved having her special place at gma's 
as much as we loved having her here.

Love your post for Pink Saturday. Grandma looks so precious. The room in pink is beautiful. Love the 5 generation picture. Love the pictures of all girls. Thank goodness I now have a dishwasher, I don't have time to stand at the kitchen sink--I'm blogging. Have a great time with Shae.

The bedroom is just fabulous. You did such a great job....and what a wonderful affirmation for this little girl..it's hard for single parents...so glad you've been an active part of her life.
