I am so loving the colors of the year, esp the pink (Rose Quartz)
Some of my favorite bags are in versions of this color:

The first one is Dooney & Bourke domed satchel from the Nile Croc series.

The Louis Vuitton is Watercolor Speedy
     The (Aquarelle) Watercolor Speedy is one of the many representations of the classic
bag which originally came only in white but later was made with a brown background. (No longer available).
I have never used this bag - heaven only knows what I am waiting for especially now that the color is hot again!
 Trivia Question:  Did you know that there are 17 paint colors that were used in blurring the Watercolor Speedy? See how smart we are!

I intend to make this year's Christmas tree a pink beauty (ok, I have already started collecting new ornaments with the pink theme~I can't help it ~I'm already excited about the holidays!)
These just arrived  - safe & sound!

      I would like you to meet Michelle at  This lovely person explores the wonderfulness of being grandparents and the joys that come along with this segment of life.  I was fortunate to be featured and I thank her for the kindness.  I am known for loving my grands more than my next breath. (According to my son, I like them better - hummmm!) It is the most unconditional love - grandchildren do not care what your job is or how much money you have - they only know how you make them feel - they know they are loved just because they exist ~ and that's enough. 
    And happy, happy day - they are coming again this weekend!!!!!!!!!!!

    The grands & I like barbecue potato chips but sometimes it's a little sweet for me so I decided to 'dress' mine up!
    I added cayenne pepper and cumin to my portion and loved it! It toned down the sweetness and made it uniquely mine!

    My precious babies are here for the weekend so craziness will commence - and how I love it!
    Have a great weekend.

       Pink isn't just a color ~ it's an attitude!

    1. Just randomly found your blog, and love it! I'm approaching sixty myself and am determined to go down fighting :). Looking forward to more inspiration from you.

    2. I would love to meet you too! Thank you for that sweet compliment. My daughters say the same thing to me that I adore my grandkids more than them. They are in CA this week and sending pictures of their trip which only makes me wish I was there too and miss them all the more. Enjoy your time with yours. Blessings!

    3. I am a pink kinda lady and just love these bags. I actually just bought one very similar to the top yesterday at a second hand shop.
