One of the prettiest colours is pink. It will always remind me of my granddaughter Alexandra. She died this past February in a car accident. She was such a beauty, a troubled soul for the longest time. She was finally getting her life together and was beginning to be happy. Sad to die at 21. This is not a sad post though,we know we will see her again. This was her time and although this will be our first Christmas without her with us, we will do our very best to gave her son a wonderful time. Pink was her colour. She wore it well with her dark eyes and hair, she was tall and model material at least we thought so.
We will miss her this Christmas because she would come into the house and would immediately be the center of attention. She never went unnoticed. These colours looked great on her.
She would have loved these shoes and I do too. If only I could wear them. When I was working I always wore high heels. Now I have been at home for awhile and go barefoot they would kill me. I still love them though.
Alexandra is very much missed and I think of her every day. I suppose I always will because I have her 2 year old son living with me. He is just like her very much the center of our world as you can imagine. He is also so much like her.
This is Alex on Tristens birthday, no make up and just having given birth.........still beautiful and one of my favourite pictures. The PINK is in her cheeks (smile).
I am happy to share her with you on "Pink Saturday".................you can follow the link on the right back to the host blog. I look forwards to meeting other participants and plan on checking out some new blogs.............Merry Christmas everyone
This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.
