Tickled Pink No. 27

504 Main
A craft...a recipe...a tip...a party...a short story...a  poem...
a  fashion find...a  favorite product...your favorite  post...
whatever makes  your blog  fabulous!
That is what Tickled Pink is all about!
{and it does not have to be PINK}
*************************
I am Tickled Pink because...
Oh wait! We have a winner of the Makia Creations Giveaway!
Malia of Yesterday on Tuesday!!!!
******
I have a SUPER-COOL GIVEAWAY starting on Monday!
******
I am lovin' the new Taylor Swift CD! Wooo-whooo!
******
I am the proud owner of a Pillow Pet!
{that's a joke - just in case you do not get it - but Jules LOVES it!}
****** 
My kiddos are thrilled that it is Halloween!
 ******
The SUN is SHINING and we are having beautiful FALL weather-
My favorite time of the year!
******
I am still working on a system for commenting/visiting/featuring
for Tickled Pink...bear with me, pretty please!
******
The November DIY Club Project Party starts next Friday.
Go check out the sponsors and get creating.

***************** 
When you pop over to Michelle's place at Emerald Cove, there is a sense of serenity and beauty. I just had "that feeling" the first time I visited. And she is so sweet.
{you do know that is a tickled pink requirement, right?}
******
The first flash of brilliance I encountered at Emerald Cove was this hutch reveal...I tell you, I wanted to drive up there and steal it in the middle of the night...
it is fabulous...{will you come paint mine?}
 ******
And, Michelle is a girl after my own heart...
she made her laundry room look FAB and made this locker for it too!
Awesome project!
 ******
 She received a wonderful gift from a kind blogger and made it her own, but what I like best is Michelle's thoughts on this..."I love having things in my house that conjure up good memories and feelings and this is definitely one of them!!"
 ******
 I especially enjoyed this post on a trip showing us some beautiful country side (I think I want to give up the city life and go live on a farm) and sharing a piece of history with us.
This post is gorgeous...It is the next best thing to being there.
 ******
Go say hi to Michelle at Emerald Cove and feel the joy and warmth!
Thanks for being always tickling me pink when I visit!
 **************************************************
Matty (a longtime bloggy buddy) has a knack for poetry
and recently wrote a really fun poem about
The Many Faces of Blogging.
 **************************************************
I love repurposing, recycling, make something old new or better...
and Kelley's at Kelley's Family Jewels motto of
"Just do it. Get out a saw and try it.
What's the worst that can happen?"
Won me over. See what happened when they got out their saw!
 **************************************************
SPOTLIGHT
You may still see Halloween decor...because guess what? I have 5 uncarved pumpkins (scooping out 45 for Cub Scouts on Wednesday did me in!), a platter of eyeball candles, and 5 not-so-spooky crows....that's it...no more...BUT I still have 2 days to be inspired, right?

    28. Ok, the legos rock! Two of my three boys are big time into legos right now (Nick wants his birthday to be lego themed so this is perfect)and it's only a matter of time before the third gets into them as well.

      I also really loved the button candy! That instantly took me back to childhood.

      Finally, thanks for linking back to my pom and tonic! Would you believe I'm drinking one as I read this? :P

      Have a wonderful Halloween weekend!

    31. As always I enjoyed this bit of pink!
      I believe I would join you if you lived on a farm.
      Matty's poem was tops!
      Scooping out 45 pumpkins for the scouts, Oh My!
      We didn't scoop out any pumpkins but our candy is ready.
      I had a great laugh with LambAround.
      I asked her to stay out of the kitchen. LOL
      Those cookies sure look good.
      Thank you for another great day!
