Since October is Breast cancer awareness month I went in and had my annual mammogram.  I wish there were a little less painful way to do that, but it is necessary to have done.  I am so glad there are organizations and clinics out there that provide free ones for women who are not able to pay for them or have insurance.  My daughter, who is a reporter for her school newspaper, was asking me if men can get breast cancer, of which I told her absolutely.  In fact, I new someone's whose father passed away from it because he never thought to go have the lumps he was feeling checked.  Even though rare, it is just as important for men to check their breast areas too.  My daughter decided to write about this in her article.  I can't wait to read it.  I hope she will bring me home a copy so I can scan it and post it on my blog.

So, I went around the house and took a few pictures of some of my favorite pink things.  I do a lot of floral arrangements so here are a few pictures of a couple of florals I did.



I also like to sew and I had these slipcovers for my dining room chairs, which were beige but the color just didn't do them justice.  You couldn't really see the pretty floral detail, so I dyed them.



I think they look so much prettier now.  Unfortunately it is really hard to take a picture of them that does justice.  Happy Pink Saturday everyone.Pink Saturday
