Everything is "Coming Up Roses" for Pink Friday Shopping!!

Please join us Friday October 24th for "Coming Up Roses"
I’ve never seen a rose I didn’t love. From the first blossom of spring, gently swaying in the breeze, to an intricately stitched needlepoint, rich in history, I love them all.
Roses represent so many wonderful things and are often used to celebrate special milestones such as weddings, births and anniversaries. Roses have also been used throughout the centuries in estate and cottage gardens, home décor and fashion. Milliners used silk roses to embellish the finest hats, while seamstresses stitches the richest brocade drapes adorned with roses.
Throughout the years, famous artists have studied and painted every aspect of the rose. Antique lithographs and post cards from the 1800s grace our homes today with their everlasting beauty while roses continue to gracefully fit every lifestyle and décor.
If you have a soft spot for roses, won’t you please join us for PINK FRIDAY at Make Mine Pink on Friday October 24th. The boutiques at Make Mine Pink are pleased to present “Coming up Roses.”

How are You Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness?



Pink October is all around us!! As a breast cancer survivor, I KNOW how important it is to learn all you can about detection and treatment and how essential it is that a cure be found, soon! Here are a few suggestions of places to give that needed support:

*Look for products in your grocery stores....many have special PINK packaging and their producers will donate on your behalf to support research!

*PINK is all over the internet giving many opportunities to donate and valuable information that might save a life....read, learn and donate! Visit The Breast Cancer Site....click daily to give free mammograms to those who cannot afford one!

*PINK is on the airwaves! Television and radio are promoting the cause...listen and donate!

*PINK is all over the Make Mine Pink boutiques! Register for the Shop Hop, hunt for the PINK ribbons, enter to win wonderful prizes, shop at the MMP boutiques for PINK products! Many boutique owners have special limited edition PINK October products, offer discounted prices, or free shipping! Grandma G's and many others will donate a portion of all PINK October sales to Susan G. Komen Foundation! Get shopping!!

* The Susan G. Komen Foundation website has extensive information on preventive measures, research, fund-raising, and of course, will accept donations year round!

Remember, EVERY dollar counts! Each year brings us a little closer to learning how to prevent this terrible disease......let's make a difference by supporting the needed research!

Exciting Event!!

Please join Grandma G's and Make Mine Pink for PINK OCTOBER SHOP HOP!

When? Monday October 6-12th. Winners will be announced the week of the 12th.

You can register now or wait until you've found one of the pink ribbons. Registration is necessary to get credit for each of the pink ribbons you find.

Each year, Make Mine Pink celebrates all who have suffered and survived breast cancer and honors those who have lost their battle with breast cancer. Grandma G's and the other boutiques at Make Mine Pink have lots of exciting things planned including special limited edition products, special discounts, or a percentage of sales donated directly to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. As a 20 year survivor of breast cancer I am proud to donate 15% of sales from Grandma G's Pink October Category through the month of October!!

Please register and read the instructions to participate. Not only will you have an opportunity to win fabulous prizes, but you'll have an opportunity to shop for unique and specialty products and participate in specials and events at some of the individual boutiques. The shop hop is open to anyone that would like to participate over 18 years of age (limit one registration per physical address).

How it Works

Many of our MMP members—click here to see the complete list—have hidden a special pink ribbon (as shown to the right) on their websites. There is only one pink ribbon image per website. Search through their websites until you find the pink ribbon that says, "You Found It!" Once you've found the ribbon, click it to return to Make Mine Pink, and, as a registered participant, you will automatically receive credit for it—the more ribbons that you find, the better the prizes will get. When the Shop Hop ends, we will hold a drawing for each prize level. Signing up is free and there's no purchase necessary to participate, so there's no reason not to play!

We also encourage you to look around the members' websites while searching for the pink ribbon, and if you find something you just can't live without, bookmark the page so you can return. You won't want to miss out on special events being held on many of the individual sites!

Make Mine Pink has created a team at Susan G. Komen for the Cure® "Passionately Pink." You may visit it and make a donation directly. Together we all can make a difference.
