Pink Saturday's Working Girls............


Today at Pink Saturday I am introducing the "working girls" of Collected Treasures......they have been with me from the very beginning. I even fell of this ladder during all of the refurbishing and broke my ankle....but I don't hold it against her....I was heavier then :) Customers come into the shop and inquire about purchasing them, but I can't let'em go. I simply tell the people to go to Home Depot and get their own, along with a can of pink spray paint, as these are mine.


Also, this Saturday, as the first Saturday in October and the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness, I urge everyone to get their annual mammograms. People are still dying of this disease and it is only through early detection that lives can be saved. As I begin my seventh year in remission and my Mother begins her third, I can only tell you that it can save your life.....but you have to do it all alone.....make yourself that promise today!


Want more Pink Fun.....jump over to Beverly's through the button on my sidebar and see what everyone else is doing for you today.....it's a lotta fun and we all thank Beverly for hosting this each and every week.......

  4. Hi Jana,

    So happy to hear that you and your Mother are in remission and what wonderful news.
    We all need mammograms, as early detection is the best defence in the fight against breast cancer.
    I have written a breast cancer awareness post also.
    I like your pink stepladder, how cute that is.

    Happy weekend
    Hugs

  9. That reminds me of a time when I was antiqueing in Holland. I fell in love with a step ladder they had and it was not for sale. I was heart broken, later I was able to purchase it. I must say that I know I paid way too much, but it is a great memory of times past. Thanks for the cute story, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  10. Winter is just around the corner in my neck of the woods and I won't see much pink in my garden again until at least April so THANK YOU for the wonderful blog entry and for giving me a little pinkie-lift today!

    Always - an added sweetness for me is seeing dogs and cats. You hit a home run!

    Hoping that your weekend is filled with laughter and sunshine☺

  16. Wow that step ladder is a cutie...sorry you fell off of it, ouch. A friend of mine fell off hers and she was only on the first step and crushed her wrist...most painful break I have ever seen!
