PINK FRIDAY at Make Mine Pink! Nifty Nurseries!!!

Pink Fridays at Make Mine Pink, your exclusive invitation to "Shopping with a Twist" is one stop shopping for a fabulous look.

Why do we love babies? According to Jack Nitschke, a neuroscientist and assistant professor of psychiatry and psychology at UW-Madison,"There's one stimulus that's universally positive: baby faces. Just looking at them gets most people, particularly new moms, feeling all warm and happy." **

Why not take great care to welcome into the world someone who makes us so very happy with a wonderfully decorated space of his/her very own? Join us for PINK Fridays at Make Mine Pink, your exclusive invitation to "Shopping with a Twist," a one stop shopping for a fabulous look, on Friday, August 1st, as we present "Nifty Nurseries"

Since I have been on a little trip, I am not prepared to participate this week in Pink Friday but I invite you to click the link and visit all the other websites and boutiques for some wonderful items for your sweet bundle of joy.....or as an awesome shower gift!!
See you next week for Pink Friday!!

Oh, my, It's Show and Tell Monday, Already!!

Happy Monday morning to everyone! Monday's fill me with renewed spirit for a wonderful week! May each of you have spectacular days ahead!!

I want to share something that is very special to me.....a gift from my son, Jordan! He has always been a sweet, generous and most of the time very thoughtful guy and occasionally he surprises me with carefully chosen gifts, given "just because"!! I was the recipient of one such gift last week. Upon entering my bathroom one evening to get ready for bed, there on the sink was a package with a simple note attached "This is for you, Mom....I love you!! Here is what I received!!
A lovely crystal angel from my angel(??)!! Sons, you gotta love them!

Now, wearing my Grandma G's hat, I have some exciting news to share!! Grandma G's will be offering frameable prints and notecards printed from the original artwork of Melinda Vahradian! Melinda is a fine artist and her work includes lovely still life's with, guess what, vintage tablecloths in them!! Here are samples......

Melinda's work is exceptional, my photography, however, is at best adequate, my apologies to Melinda! I know you are all going to love these!!

Also, I would like to announce that Grandma G's will have CandyLights by Jorabeel' s available soon!! If you have never seen Roxie's delectable silicone bulbs......with a twist, well you are in for a treat!! Wonderful for holiday use and for year round, too! They look smashing as part of your mantle decor, or outside around the patio or gazebo!! Wait until you see the fav: Bubblegum Pink!! Watch for CandyLights At Grandma G's!!

Hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday weekend! We had a group of my son's friends over for a barbeque and swim. When it got dark, off to the local park where they have a fireworks show......they are illegal in our neighborhood so the city has a huge display every year!! Fun!

I spent part of my evening on Sunday designing my own postage stamp!! Sharon, one of my Make Mine Pink sisters, and owner of C'est Chouette, (visit her website to see her gorgeous needlepoint tuffets!) posted the link to and I registered, and then had fun creating the Grandma G's stamp you see pictured below!!

This is real postage and one more way to advertise....what fun!! Go to Zazzle and start creating!! They have tons of other products for you to design, too.....mouse pads, t-shirts, business cards, mugs, posters, just to name a few!

Have a wonderful week and don't forget to join me and MMP for Pink Friday! This week's shopping theme is "The Cottage Porch"!!!

I have a boutique at Shabby Lane Shops, too, and we are having "Christmas in July"....come to Grandma G's and also connect to Shabby Lane to shop the other's never too early to start your holiday shopping!!
