Pink Saturday, December 10

Happy Pink Saturday! Thank you, Beverly @
Last week I visited The talented creator of this beautiful blog had a picture of the most delicious looking pink snowflake cookies. I wanted to make a cup of tea and have one.
This week I want to share some beautiful pink glass beads.
These beads belonged to my mom.
Along with these beads. They were strung on old fashioned string and my mom hung them on her silver Christmas tree. Mom passed away in 1967 and these beads were put in a box and forgotten about. I came across them several years ago. I unstrung  them and began to make ornaments for my siblings with them. When my brother opened his box he looked at the ornaments and said to his wife, "These are my mother's beads."
This year I am creating a wreath for one of my sisters.
I was in Michaels yesterday looking for some embellishments when I came upon some very pretty Christmas beads. I was blessed with inspiration to use some of my mother’s glass beads on my sister’s wreath. I am going to string them and then weave them into the wreath. I will post a picture when it is done.
Happy Pink Saturday Holidays!
