Get the Scoop!

Happy Saturday, the day we celebrate the color pink in our world! Beverly has challenged us to visit one blog that is new to us each week, and then link to them in our following Pink Saturday post. That's a great idea to build up new readers. I encourage anyone reading this post to go visit Mary's Meanderings. She seems like a lovely lady who takes awesome photos and makes her own laundry detergent. And it's PINK!
Here's my offering for the week. I hope visitors will comment so I'll know you were here! I've shown you my mom's pink nightshirt from Maine, and the gorgeous topiaries made of pink flowers that we saw there, and now here's my favorite pink thing in Wells, ME: The Scoop Deck!They have a kagillion flavors of ice cream displayed on their mostly pink sign in the parking lot, my favorites being butter crunch and black bear.Here's my mom in her pink Quacker Factory ensemble given to her by one of her fabulous daughters (My sister never shops on QVC.) holding the bag with all of the cups to bring back to the hotel. Besides the giant pink ice cream cone, you can see the happy face pink OPEN sign if you enlarge the picture.
Be sure to visit our hostess, Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound and leave her a comment!
What's your favorite ice cream?

Hi Elizabeth:
Happy Pink Saturday!!

I have been gone from blogging due to a crazy summer of home redecorating. I started in about 10 days ago to jump back into the blogging pool. I divided all my blogging friends into "blog teams" and thought I would just visit one team each day of the week and I got through about three days and my hard drive died and now that I have a new one I lost all my teams and had to start working on new ones. I hope to being posting next week if the end of the front room remodel goes well. It has been so crazy here in the desert. I have really missed blogging. And I have missed all the wonderful things that my pals share. I so don't want to give this up!!

Blueberry is now my favorite flavor... and I have gone way overboard on it this summer!

My favorite is Jamoca Almond Fudge at Baskin Robbins!! In fact, you've just inspired me to have some today when I go to the city. Thanks for sharing and Happy pink week to you and yours!!

Love your pinks! Especially the Ice cream! I'd say my favorite flavor is black raspberry! Happy Pink Saturday! Suzie

What a great pink sign... I'd be standing there the longest time, trying to decide on a flavor.

My favorite? It changes... right now I'm loving Bluebell's Banana Pudding (it's got real vanilla wafer pieces & little dibs of cream in it).

Thanks for stopping by!
Pleasant weekend :-)

I would never pass up an ice cream cone - especially from a mostly pink sign. Your Mom is stylin' in her new outfit (from her favorite daughter, I'm sure) - Quack Quack! ~ Robyn

Happy Pink Saturday, hope your weekend is a lovely one.

Wells is one of my most favorite places to go in Maine and I loooooove The Scoop Deck!!! And your Mom is adorable! When I went to QVC with my Mom a few weeks ago we saw Jeanne Bice, the Quacker Factory lady. She wasn't too friendly though.

I hate to be a broken record, but it's cold and gloomy here today and it rained all day yesterday! Hoping that I can get outside a bit to check out my gardens☺ Pink Saturday is bringing a little much needed and very welcome color into my home today. Thanks so much for participating. It's always so nice to visit your blog and see what's going on.

Hope your weekend is filled with sunshine and everyone you l♥ve. I'm hoping mine will be dry☺

Yum! I like all sorts of ice cream. Lately, though, I've been on a coconut kick (which is hard to find!)...
