Pink Saturday/ Some Red/Pink and A WINNER!


Beverly, please forgive me… I have a post for pink Saturday and then I found out I had won a Giveaway from Completely Coastal and I just had to post about it also.

Please go by Beverly’s blog …How Sweet The Sound and check out all the blogger who follow directions better than me.







I am in the market for a new and much better camera, so hopefully my pictures will be better in the near future.


 Just wanted to show this beautiful bromeliad I bought yesterday.

Now for my Prize!!!!!!!!!  Completely Coastal had a great giveaway and I won these beautiful lanternsvintage-beach-decor

I can’t wait for Spring and Summer to be able to use these at the Lake House…you will be seeing a lot of pictures of our New Additions, as you may know, my lake house is my beach house!

What a Great Day!

Hi Barbara,
Love those lanterns!
Thanks for the comment on my BIG giveaway.
Here is the answer to your question...To leave a link in your blog entry about my giveaway, its really easy. If you have the new version of should have a button that says "link" at the top of your toolbar when you make a new post. (if you don't see it go to the settings area for your blog, (I believe), and click on the new version of blogger)

The link button will be just above the white area where you type your blog entry. Click on that button where you want to type the link. It will insert it right where your courser is. It will give you two lines to fill in.
#1 What you want the link to "click her to go to PatinaSoul" or you can bypass that 1st lime and just fill in the 2nd line with the web address which is But in order for it to work you have to fill in the 2nd line even if you don't use the first line. Hope that helps! It was confusing to me at first to!
I'm still learning something new everyday! If all else fails, just type in the name of my blog in your post and they can copy and paste the web address to get there. ;)

Hope that helps
