Happy Pink Saturday!!!

Hello everyone!  And Happy Pink Saturday!!!  What a fun blog-land activity!

I finished putting together my Marie Antoinette Crazy Quilt purse and I've been saving it for my Pink Saturday post.  So without delay, here it is:

Marie Antoinette Purse

The back is rose colored velvet and the inside is lined with a pink rose print.  I had pink handles but they were a little too bright so I went with the clear handles.

I also thought you would enjoy seeing a Mini Art Quilt that my mom made for me:

Pennies From Heaven

This has always been my favorite photo of my mom.  She was about 1 year old here.  It was taken by a professional photographer in 1941.  The song "Pennies From Heaven" was popular at that time so that's what my grandparents called this photo.

So that's my post for this Pink Saturday.  Thank you so much for stopping by!  Please hop over and visit our gracious Pink Saturday host, Beverly.  You can find her here at How Sweet The Sound.  Be sure to visit some of the other sweet pink bloggers!!

Also, be sure to enter my drawing to win this sweet little Sewing Art Quilt:


There are 3 chances to win and you can find the details here in this post!

Your purse turned out lovely - I like the turquoise with the pink. Your Mom did a great art quilt with such a sweet photo.
