This Pink Saturday I wanted to share a REAL treasure with you. My husband's grandparents celebrated their 70th Wedding anniversary last year; isn't that amazing? All of us kids, grandkids and great grandkids went to visit. We had a special service, lunch at their church and spent the night with them. She always makes my husband ( her baby ) a very yummy chocolate pie. Late that night we were sitting at the table enjoying pie and some good conversation when Mammaw said she wanted to show me something. I followed her and there folded on the foot of their bed was this beautiful quilt....
Isn't it gorgeous? It's not ALL Pink but the trim and backing are pink. :)
I learned that Pappaw's sister; Aunt Rea made this quilt 20 years ago as a gift for their 50th wedding anniversary. Mammaw told me she really wanted me to have this quilt. Well, I almost fainted right then and there. I don't think she will ever know how much that meant to me.
NOTE: Mammaw & Pappaw just celebrated their 71st anniversary in June. :) One day I'll tell you the story about her flower sack britches, how they met & fell in love....it's priceless.
Mammaw also gave me her TOP SECRET chocolate pie recipe~ My mother in law, was quite jealous...lol. :)
Please go by Beverly's and visit all the Pink Saturday participants. You will have so much fun and see all kinds of Pink. Have a wonderful weekend!
