If Not for Pink Saturday....

...I would have not known Jeanne of Backyard Neighbor was NOT Beverly of How Sweet The Sound!
Back in September 2009 this pretty face was on Pink Saturdays Sidebar. I just assumed it was our Beloved Hostess.
A month or so of Pink Saturdays went by and I visited Backyard Neighbor and there was our Hostess Beverly's picture.
Now, I might have been born at night, but it wasn't last night, so I figured out real quick that Beverly had TWO Blogs.....for the rest of the story click HERE.

If Not for Pink Saturday...

I would have always thought of PINK as Just Another Color.

I would have Not had the Most Outrageous Birthday Party In Blogland!

I would NOT have met Sherry at Country Wings In Phoenix, and she would not have won the Pink Attitude Plate!

I would not have known that Dolly Parton and I share the same Birthday Month and have so much in common....check us out HERE

If Not for Pink Saturday...I would have missed the chance to know the real meaning of Faith Hope and Charity as the Pink Saturday Participants 'Joined Hands and Organizations in Support of Humanity in Need in Haiti.  Pink Saturday January 15, 2010...Joining Hands Through Faith Hope and Charity.
If Not for Pink Saturday...I would not have had the opportunity to share with Ya'll the Amazing Pinks of Texas!  One of the Highlights of CollectInTexas Gal was the invitation to participate in the Artful Blogging Magazine Feature on Pink Saturday.  Artful Plans for Artful Bloggin' for Artful Pink Saturday was the Post where the Celebration of Pink Saturdays Second Anniversary began. 
If Not for Pink Saturday...I wouldn't be able to say that being a part of Pink Saturday has enriched not only my Blogging experience, but also my everyday life in so many ways.
Who knew that a Computer and Blogging would open up a whole new world of Writing, Art, Photography and Friendships!
Because of Pink Saturday...This Girl Raised In Texas is Blessed and Enriched Beyond Belief.

 If Not for Pink Saturday...Well, I just wouldn't be here with all my Pink Craziness and

As Always...Thank-you Beverly at
How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday!
Thanks for Featuring

  1. I love it! You post the best pinks! Jeanne and Beverly I know are neighbors are good buds! It is so awesome to know you! I love PINKIE GRITS! Anne

    Love the apron too!

  2. You are something else when it comes to great post. This one today is another excellent example of your thinking and writing skills. I definitely remember the one on the mix up last September. You will not see a picture of Beverly. I have her pictured in my mind, but I am sure she is nothing like I think. Some of the Texas gals are smarter than others.

  3. G'eve Sue ~ What delightful pinks & people ... Sherry is a darling.

    You are always so bright & beautiful in your writes & presentations, so enjoy.

    Do you live near San Antonio?

    Happy PS weekend ~
    TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon

  4. If not for Pink Saturday, we would not have found YOU, Sue!!!! Hurray for Pink Saturday and have a great one, Char

  5. If not for Pink Saturday I would have not had so many Pinky friends! Great post as usual. Happy Pink Saturday. Grace xoxo

  6. Girl,
    You are the cutest and funniest Pink Saturday blogger!!!

    Big hugs to you.


  7. I clicked to your other post, and read with interest of your grandma.

    Some parts of my grandma's story parallels with yours.

    Child bride of the 1900s, into an era and culture where men could take multiple wife and was the boss.

    Grand ma left China for Borneo, but returned knowing her husband would take another wife.

    She died, a heart broken woman, and we never got to know her.

  8. Good morning Sue, I am stealing a minute from the busiest day in this year for me. I am having 50 people from our camera club for a BBQ tonight. Yikes. I am so glad I did because your post today just makes me smile really Texas BIG!

    I love your BIG Texas heart.

  9. Happy Pink Saturday, sweet Sue. I hope you enjoy being the featured participant today. I thank you for everything you do to always make Pink Saturday special. You are a blessing in our lives.

    I will laugh forever about the Jeanne/Beverly post. Now you know I have gray hair, and I'll give you another visual. I'm 5'2", but I don't have eyes of blue.

    I love this post, Sue!

    J and I have had the pleasure of meeting Jeanne and her husband, when they passed through Missouri, last year. Good people!:-) We enjoyed lunch and a walk around historic South Main Street in Saint Charles Missouri before they headed west.

    I haven't met Beverly but feel like I know her, just the same.

  11. Happy Pink Saturday! I love the pinks too!
