Pink Saturday and the perfect pink giveaway gift! (and I ain't Talkin' Trash!)

I thought that Pink Saturday would be the perfect day to share a wonderful blog giveaway win from one of my favorite blog ladies in the whole world... Debbie from Talkin' Trash.

I stumbled upon Deb's blog one day about a year ago, and knew immediately I was going to love her. Her header photo had a full size female mannequin, nearly nude, laying in a bathtub with a sleep mask over her eyes... Gotta love a woman that gets a vision like that!

She really loves having giveaways... and in December... I won one... (say that 5-times real fast!)...
This week, direct from the distributor, my wonderful box arrived...
with my prize!

a very-very Frenchy Hot Chocolate pot... all pretty in PINK!

with two perfectly PINK cups...

and this fancy little electric stirring/froth maker thingy... which Ricky really enjoyed playing with...

The absolutely best Hot Chocolate maker... which has already found it's way to our 5th wheel camper... cause you can't go camping without Hot Chocolate!

I adore this wonderful PINK bloggy giveaway gift... just as much as I adore my sweet bloggy friend Deb... Thanks Deb, from the bottom of my Texas heart!


and for more Pink Saturday, please visit the wonderful Miss Beverly at How Sweet the Sound... There is so much more to see!

Happy Pink Saturday from down here in French Lique!

Hot Chocolate...I'll be right over ;-P (wish you lived that close)
Just visited Sassy Mini Dolls and she is sharing about you on her PS post.
I had fun with my post last night as it evolved. But I did have to borrow the sign...I forgot to take one.
Going to hang the mirror over my bed today and if it looks good I'll post about it. I haven't unloaded my goodies yet, waiting for the guys to leave this morning on their Enchanted Rock back packing camp out this weekend. Then I am heading for the garage with a paint brush. Will post about that on Met Monday...maybe.
Still smiling about our trip and so want another rita!
See ya next Friday ;-)

I love your PINK win!! What fun to sip hot choc from those amazing mugs!

I LOVE your booth redo! I would love to have a booth again one day. Right now, sales are really slow in our area...maybe one day when our economy perks up, to jump back into the antiquing fun!

Hope your Pink Sat was filled with fun! L, Dana
