    I have completed the full pink list twice commenting on 90% of the posts. (the comments that are the same on every post remind me of bad thank you notes) I try to look at everyone posts for the week. Gives me a better understanding of their blog.I usually take a peek at their follow list and pop over to one or two….thats why when I have finished the list I celebrate(it’s usually Thursday)with a glass of wine around midnight.happy pink, Heidi

    Jennifer, this is such a glorious photo – and I love the quote.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

    Beautiful photo and I have to agree with Mr. Einstein. Fairy tales instill imagination and therefore inspire creation.
    What a smart man he was!
    Thank you for sharing that with all of us…I may have to post that quote on my mood board in my little art nest!
    We are never too old to read fairy tales right???
    Have a wonderful weekend!!!!
    everything vintage

    Hi Jennifer,
    The garden fairy is delightful! I have always loved fairy tales! I read them even when the other kids made fun of me at school. I loved getting lost in their make believe world! Have a wonderful Pink Saturday and a great weekend.

    We all should take a day a week and lived in a pretended fairytale.
    Wonderful post!!!!

    Thanks for the quote. It sure made me smile 🙂

    Have a great pink day!

    the photograph of your sister’s garden fairy and flowers are so sweet and very beautiful. It is very unique.
    I still am not able to list you on my blog roll…why I don’t know but I am certainly coming back at least once a week to read your posts…they are very intestesting…
    I love fairy tales and always read them to my children, who are adults now…but have wonderful imaginations and creativity.

    I love that quote!! It says everything about the imagination and how important it is to spark a child’s imagination. The garden and the fairy are lovely! Happy Pink Saturday!

    What a wonderful blog post for Pink Saturday! It’s windy and raining here in Upper Michigan today, so this is a breath of spring for me☺

    Wishing you a wonderful weekend filled with sunshine and the j♥y of being surrounded by those you l♥ve.

    See you next week!

    Beautiful! I love that quote too.

    Thanks for the kind words you left on my blog the other day too. I have been checked for Sjorens in the past but it came back negative. Sorry to hear you suffer with it though.

    Lovely photo, Einstein’s quotes always delight me!
    ~*Happy Pink Saturday*~

    Have a beautiful Pink Saturday!

    Back Porch Blessings,

    I totally agree with the quote, genius! 🙂

    Lovely photo too.

    Happy Pink Saturday! 🙂

    You’re right, great minds do think alike! Your quote is beautiful too, you gotta love a good fairy tale! Happy PS and have a great weekend, it’s been great getting to know you this week!

    I just love the beautiful garden fairy statue, she’s awesome.


  23. May 16, 2009 5:55 pm

    Absolutely spot-on! My mother always read fairy tales to me till I was old enough to read – then I read them myself (still do… only now it’s more about vampires and The Darker Side, like Stephen King…) So does that make me super intelligent, lol
    A very Happy Pink Saturday to you!

  24. May 16, 2009 7:39 pm

    What a sweet quote. It makes sense to me as fairies are all about make believe. How better for a child to make good use of their imagination than by listening to fairy tales. Creativity is sparked by the imagination.

    Do you think Einstein had fairy tales read to him?


  25. May 16, 2009 10:02 pm

    I dropped on by and I glad that I did. I like your style, your words and your attitude. Fairy tales make the world go round in a magical way. We all need the magic now and then. I will visit often.

    ps: sorry to hear you have no spit. nasty, that sjogren’s. you do seem to have a nice fellow. me too. the fellow, I mean..not the lack of spit.
