Happy Pink Halloween

Hello and Happy Pink Saturday. That's another week gone by in a blur. Thank you once again to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting again. If you have time have a wander over to Sonja's blog at The Secret Life of a Stash Collector she has some great pinks from her holiday in Orlando.

My choice this week was all I could find after hunting around for pinks. Something that seems to be lacking in this house at present.
This is Thistledown and she is my hand made in Fochabers bear. I bought her 17 years ago at a local craft fair and just had to have her.

She gets her name from her nose!! It's an embroidered Scottish Thistle. She's made from distressed mohair and was made just a few roads away from where I live now. Unfortunately over the years Fiona, who made her has moved away so no more bears!! You can't really see but her paws are pink and over the years the material had faded a lot :(

She normally sits on the chair but it made the photo look better with the cushions off the bed!!
I hope you're all having a Pink Halloween. Back later with pumpkins photos :)
