Pink Friday at Make Mine Pink

Thank you for joining us for "Pink Friday at Make Mine Pink". We look forward to seeing you each and every week for "shopping with a twist."

Please join us this Friday November 28th for the last in a series of very special PINK FRIDAYS at Make Mine Pink. Christmas at Make Mine Pink.

While Christmas shopping usually starts early in November for me, The day after Thanksgiving is really the defining moment. I, just like so many others, pour over the sale flyers in the special edition of our local paper in search of great products at great prices. Per tradition, after Thanksgiving dinner, the men settle in to watch TV, while the women pour through the sales flyers and plan their shopping strategy.

This year I plan to do all of my day after Thanksgiving shopping, on-line. I'll snuggle up with a warm down thrown and a cup of coffee and from the comfort of my own home, start my Christmas shopping in earnest.

One of the very first places I plan to start shopping is right here at Make Mine Pink. Sure, it's Pink Friday, and I just love the recommendations from the the Boutique owners, but this week we also have a very special surprise for you!

This week we are pleased to introduce our very special Holiday Bazaar Catalog!

As you flip through our electronic Flyer, you'll find quick picks from your favorite boutiques with an easy - click to buy option. We recognize that our customers want beautiful products at great prices and this is just what you'll find in this fabulous seasonal catalog.

So mark your calendar, bookmark this site, and join us from the comfort of your own home on Friday, November 28th for the best holiday shopping on the web!

Happy Holidays,

Christmas comes to Make Mine Pink

Thank you for joining us for "Pink Friday at Make Mine Pink". We look forward to seeing you each and every week for "shopping with a twist."

Please join us this Friday for the very first in a series of very special PINK FRIDAYS at Make Mine Pink. Christmas at Make Mine Pink begins November 21st!

It happened every year~ right after Thanksgiving dinner. The men would go into the living and laugh and tell stories, and that is where the women wanted them. As the women cleared away the food and washed a dried the fine china and crystal, the discussion began. As children we listened, and waited for the big reveal.

“Who will have Christmas?”“Well Dale and Anita have the new house.” (oh, goody a new house.) “But maybe we should have it at Rosie’s, then Uncle Dave could be there” (Rosie had a sitting room that was never used throughout the year but at Christmas opened just like the most gloriously decorated present)“Is it Marilyn’s turn?” (oh, yes! Marilyn had the very best sledding hill ever!)“How about Eddie and Ella’s farm?” (in the foot hills of Marvin, South Dakota, it was always a scene from an Norman Rockwell painting)

Truthfully, it didn’t matter much to the cousins, we had Christmas activities planned at everyone house, each a little different.

We knew Thanksgiving was just a prelude of the much grander holiday; Christmas was coming. Hundreds of relatives would dress in their Christmas finest, converge at the chosen location, and bring food. Oh the food would be grand; lutefisk, snadbakkels, lefse (with or with out sugar,) sage dressing with turkey liver, cranberries and lingonberries, oyster stew, yams with marshmallows. The finest turkey, the biggest ham and roast beef, too, all products of our farm lifestyle.

And the trees, decorated with all the ornaments collected throughout many years of celebrating, some handcrafted, some came in boxes of DUZ©, some newly purchase and some from the old country. And best of all, the ‘new’ bubble lights. Whoever created bubble lights was a genius to us as kids. We loved looking at each ornament, hoping someone would tell us a story of this one or that one.

Each year I buy a little more to decorate, add a new color here or there, purchase new ornament that resembles the old or an old ornament just like Mother had; building new traditions. As we place each ornament on the tree, I retell stories of my Christmases past and my daughters listen. I see in their eyes the understanding that Christmas is more than just us. It is traditions, families and beliefs.

Happy Holidays!

My Review of Pretty in Pink Beaded 3-Light Bowl Pendant Chandelier

Originally submitted at Lamps Plus

This pendant light has a soft and romantic look. It's also a look you can alter as you wish, as it comes with two pleated fabric bands and two beaded strands that let you create you own look. The fabric bands come in pink or white and fit behind the rose motif screen. Then choose from pink ...

Annas Illuminaries & More

Oh my goodness! I received my candle and I loved it. It was very beautifully packaged and was in a very cute little cut glass candle holder. But the best part was the smell. I ordered the gingerbread. Well it smelled up my house with the most wonderful scent. I didn't have anything sweet to eat in the house so I got a can of biscuits laid them out on a baking dish, put sugar and Cinnamon on them and just before they got done I put a little pat of butter on them. My daughter and I ate all of them.

So this is a warning -- gingerbread candles may be hazardous to your diet.
