Happy Pink Saturday!

Aah, I do love PINK SATURDAYS. PINK is such a cheerful colour and makes me feel smiley even on a grey and rainy day. Not that today is rainy, it has turned quite nice this afternoon, I can see sunshine and a bit of blue sky.

But back to Pink Saturday, and a question - Do little girls dream in PINK? This silly question kinda planted itself in my head while I was making this PINK collage. The image is from a French postcard, which I found at a vide greniers this summer. I dug it out the other week for the inchie I made for Every Inchie Monday, but I love it so much, I wanted to use it in a few other projects as well. So here is my DREAMS collage, a tad bigger than an inchie :-) -

Can you stand a bit more pinkness? I was happily collaging away with my bits and pieces, and thought that in honour of Pink Saturday, I could make a little PINK inspiration kit for my Etsy shop. Here it is, my Little Bag of PINK Happiness -

Inside this bag

you will find
morceau of French damask ticking
morceau of 1930s silk fabric
page from a 19th C. French book
music paper

as well as

I am planning to make some more Little Happiness bags over the weekend in different colours.

I am linking all this PINKNESS to the PINK SATURDAY LINKY PARTY over at How Sweet the Sound.If I haven't outpinked you yet, then hop over there and check out the other PINKS.
