Welcome, glad you came to visit. Check in periodically to find out about specials at Patricia Rose, to share some herbal information I have learned about and a recipe here and there. Let's just enjoy a nice chat together. Looking forward to seeing you frequently!

Well, it will be Monday by the time most of you see this. Off to work on Monday AM, so here's my Monday Show and Tell. Can you take this efficiency?? These were fun to work on and I got a kick out of hanging them in the shrubs--feel free to notice how healthy and lovely my barberries are.

These are sachets with hand pieced fronts and lapped seam backs which I have hand stitched closed so the potpourri doesn't go all over. Wanted you to see how they can be hung up. They can slip over a hanger in your closet, over a door knob, in front of an open window, or over a knob in your car. Air freshener or sachet--very versatile little whimsies.

All of the boutique owners at Make Mine Pink had a great time participating in the first Pink Friday. It was great fun seeing how everyone interpreted the theme of Springtime in Paris. It went quite smoothly and was very successful. Thank you to all who came to visit the boutiques.

This coming week, the theme is "Father's Favorites" - this one could be very interesting. How do the boutiques in this oh, so pink world interpret this one??? I can't wait to see. Don't forget to come by on Friday to check out the Pink Friday offerings on my website and that of all the other Little Pink Boutiques. Come with a cup of coffee or a cup of tea and have a lovely, relaxing shopping experience. No lines, no Gas!!

My poor little pooch, Chloe, was so excited today. There is going to be a brand new Little Pink Boutique offering doggie outfits and accessories. Well, Chloe has wanted to be a model since she was a pup. She insisted I send off her picture to the new boutique owner, front face and profile:

Now she is completely devastated and feels her career is over before it started. She has been mistaken for a Lhasa. She is a very sensitive Pomeranian and took to her bed, she vants to be alone!
Well, let me console my little diva, do you suppose a milk bone will work???
Will be back Thursday, don't forget to visit on Friday!!!
