Today is the 2nd ANNIVERSARY FOR PINK SATURDAY in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness! I have been participating since about July of 2008 and I don't think I have missed a single Saturday!
WELCOME TO PINK SATURDAY AND SOMETHING A LITTLE DIFFERENT FOR ME! I am usually doing tea party stuff here! But here goes something different....

One of the great things about blogging is the great people you meet around the world....take for example Johanna from Germany who can be found at her blog at Silber + Roses at
http://silber-rosen.blogspot.com/ ! Please visit her and say hello!
This week she helped me by telling me what this old antique pillow cover says.....it is written in German so I really never knew what it said until now! I have had it for many years and I e-mailed her a note and photo and she responded!
She told me that it offers advice and wisdom for a couple:
"Protect each other against grief/sorrow.
Short is the time which you are together."
"Although many years will unite you,
Once they will seem to you like minutes."
My mother-in-law gave this to me many years ago. She was adopted as a baby in Illinois by people who had come from Germany. At Christmas, I showed the nativity set she gave me from Germany that is over 100 years old. My mother-in-law is now 92 years old herself!
The cover is on a guest room antique bed.....
Happy Pink Saturday to you all!
