Can you Imagine My Suprise.....



It's PINK Saturday and I'm going to share with you something PINK .....
 

Today I made a trip to Joann Fabrics to purchase some fabric for an apron I was working on. It was quite busy and as I stood in line to get the fabric cut, I noticed the new Somerset Life magazine that was on the shelf. I decided to flip through it and boy was I surprised..... At first it my brain did not register. I quietly said to myself, " Boy that looks like one of my letters".   Guess what?  It was one of my creations.  There  it was on page 71. I was unaware that Somerset was publishing it in the newest addition of the Somerset Life Magazine.  I couldn't stop smiling. I was about to do my "HAPPY DANCE" right there in the store, but I just decided to purchase the magazine and take it home and celebrate in the privacy of my home!
It was a two page spread in Somerset Life Magazine....




  Here's the first page.....
and it's PINK!




Page #2.....
More PINK!




What a wonderful unexpected surprise. It put a smile on my face for the remainder of the day. The magazine has so many wonderful pictures and articles by so many creative people. You can purchase it at Joann Fabrics, Michaels and Barnes & Noble. If you love pretty things you'll love this publication!

Oh Sherry Congrats.
Sweetie how exciting, we have a celebrity amongst us. What an honor for you. I am so thrilled. I am surprised they published it before they even told you. It probably was a shocker, but a FANTASTIC one at that. Congrats sweetie. I am so happy for you. I am doing the "HAPPY DANCE" too.

Happy Pink Saturday and what a special share you have today.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Congratulations, Sherry! I'm sure you were the only one on that long line with a smile on your face. Funny you mention it too, because I just asked Dawn over at The Feathered Nest where I could find it {I've never looked through a copy before}. She mentions it all the time and I thought it was about time I checked it out. I'll have to look for it when I'm in Joann's next.

I'm a day late and a dollar short with my Pink Saturday visits. The sun was shining too bright yesterday and just like a little kid I couldn't stop marveling at how lovely it was as it beamed through my lace curtains and puddled on the floor. My cats were in heaven.

So, here I am today, a little late but thinking that I got a bonus because I avoided all the traffic!

How wonderful for you to begin the year with such a lovely surprise!

Lovely blog and the sweetest pinks that you shared. Thank you so much for making this such a lovely Sunday for me.
