Handpainted Pink Goblets

I went to a local jeweler to have a pin repaired and spotted this display in the window. Johnny took the picture, but it is hard to see much because of the shine of the glass.




Debbie, a pleasant lady who works inside the jewelry shop put the display together. She's recently had an experience with breast cancer, and she is the one who painted the glasses. They sell for $20 each and a portion of the proceeds go to support a cure for Breast Cancer.

If interested, you may reach Debbie at: mackinnonjewelers AT verizon Dot net

Debbie's friend wrote the poem.

A Toast To Your Life

Breast Cancer is real and among us.
You can beat and overcome it.
For you are strong and you are alive.
This glass is a toast to your life.

Come what may, don’t lose faith,
For look how far you’ve come.
Look forward and treasure each moment.
This glass is a toast to your life.

Filled with love, hugs, and kisses,
This is a drink of well-wishes,
Of healing and the power to overcome.
This glass is a toast to your life.

Hi Sally, love your post today. Cancer research is so needed. The wine glasses are lovely. I pray the girl who paints them continues her good health.

We are in Fl. at my daughter's home and I grabbed a few moments to visit before we leave for the game.

Have a happy day.

Hugs, Jeanne

I think every woman I know has been touched by Breast Cancer in some way. One of my best friends passed away from Breast Cancer in 1994 after a two year battle. It broke my heart to watch her suffer. But she was brave and always put on the good face. Whenever I see a post like this, it reminds me of Edna, her struggle... and her strength. Sweet tribute.

Hugs. Dixie

Great Pink Saturday post, Sally.... Those little goblets are so neat---and the poem is GREAT. Since I have a good friend with breast cancer, I am always aware of the 'pinks' these days in their honor...

Lovely post.

Joyce said...

Love the poem. Glad the roof is up on your house and I have no idea where to find the perfect sofa but I agree most sort of have you sink down when you sit. We felt like the story of the 3 bears when sofa shopping ..one sofa was too short and soft and one too hard and one just right for us:)

Patricia said...

Charli and me said...

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

I love anything hand-painted and these are lovely! Happy belated Pink Saturday! (It take me a couple of days to make it around to visit everyone...but I'm determined!) Have a great day!

Margie said...

Pretty glasses for a great cause! Imagine if we all bought something pink in Oct for the cause! There are so many options for us, they really make it easy to donate, don't they?

Have a lovely week!
