Party, Party, Party


Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound recently celebrated Pink Saturday's 2nd Anniversary with an amazing party. There were 280 participants! But don't put away those pink party frocks just yet. There are more parties happening in Blogville.



My friend, Rhondi @ Rose Colored Glasses is hosting her 3rd Annual Summer Porch Party on June 21st, the first day of summer. Rhondi says, "A porch, a patio, or a deck are all welcome." Mr. Linky will be ready the previous night. So spruce up those outdoor spaces and share a party. No doubt many of you will soon be entertaining al fresco. Take photos and share your outdoor entertaining spaces. You can see Rhondi's 2009 Porch Party here.



The new Alice and Wonderland movie seems to be all the rage, but the creative and talented Vanessa of A Fanciful Twist will be hosting her 3rd Annual Mad Hatter Party on June 26th. You can click here to get all the details. Vanessa, an artist, writer, photographer, and blogger was spotlighted in Winter 2010 Artful Blogging with a feature on her 2009 Mad Hatter's Party. You'll find a list of Mad Tea Partiers 2010 on Vanessa's side bar. Plan a party of your own and join in the fun.



I know most of you here today are pinkies, but summer offers wonderful opportunities to celebrate the red, white, and blue. Joan @ Anything Goes plans to continue her "Vintage Holiday" Blog Party tradition with a Vintage 4th of July Blog Party on June 30. Joan invites you to "share your love of vintage red, white, and blue and all things patriotic!" Click here to get all the details and add yourself to the list of those participating found on Joan's sidebar.


This party isn't until August, but Barb wants you to start planning now. Barb's "Show Us Your Roosters" Party was a huge success last fall. No doubt it will be a smashing repeat this year. You can read all about the details here. So pull out your roosters, and let them crow!



Hope all you Party Animals will join in the fun.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
