A Clockwork Pink

Without really intending to, I have started collecting alarm clocks. The crazy thing is while I love the way they look, I cannot stand to hearing them tick. No, you don't need to alert the police. It's not one of those Tell-Tale Heart scenarios. It's just one of those peevish things to me like the drip, drip, dripping sound of water, or the drum, drum, drumming of anxious fingers. Distracting. Annoying. Unnerving.
So despite my best intentions, I have once again opted for "form" over "function." Story of my life. Hope the dogs don't get any bright ideas as to how to make these little beauties functional.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! For a glimpse at other pink follies, pop over to the blog of our delightful hostess Beverly for a list of all of the day's participants.

Quibble and Kits

Have I ever told you that I have a weakness for glass jars? Of course I have. In fact, if it weren't for these little beauties I would scarcely have any topics for my blog posts. Now while I often yammer on and on about the jars, I don't always elaborate on the contents of the jars in my collection. That being said, I thought I should shine the spotlight on one of my favorites in honor of Pink Saturday. Do you remember Kits and BB Bats? They bring back happy memories of trips to the dime store candy counter when I was little. They also come in chocolate and banana flavor, but I love the pink wrappers on the strawberry the best. I've had these on display in this jar for going on ten years now. (I told you I was a whack-a-doodle) They've changed the packaging on the BB Bats since then, so I am glad I have this jar chock-full of the retro ones even though they are way too hard to nibble on now. Okay crazy enough to keep them for ten years, but not crazy enough to eat them after this long, thank you very much.

Pink Saturday...Family Circus Style

Have you ever read the cartoon strip Family Circus? If you have you might remember that the artist who draws it sometimes takes a vacation, and while he is away he lets his little boy draw the strip in his place. With this in mind, I thought it would be fun to let my daughter create my Pink Saturday post this week. The above photo shows some of her favorite gifts from Christmas. Even though she is only four, the girl LOVES to decorate. She arranges and rearranges her toys on an hourly basis. She is all about the display, the textures, and the layering. But you want to know the coolest part about her little vignettes?

She takes pictures of them with her own little digital camera! I'm sure starting a blog must be on her to-do list in 2010. Did I mention that the girl is precocious?
