A Very Special Pink Saturday

I'm linking up to Beverly's Pink Saturday, a great blogging idea to post something pink each Saturday and to visit others who do the same.

Today's theme is Show Us Your Fall or Pink.  Last weekend we visited a pumpkin patch and came home with some pumpkins to add to the mums outside.  But today it's cold and raining so no photo of the outdoor decor.   I'm still decorating inside so no photo of that either.

Instead, I'm going the traditional pink route this weekend with a very special shirt.  To take this photo, I put it on a dress form that I won over at Heartwarming Vintage/Crafty Secrets.  (I haven't altered it yet and decided to put it to work for this photo.)   
Yes, this is how big the dress form is!  
It will take me a while to get it altered.  I'm working towards January for a special design team post.

The breast cancer awareness shirts are being sold by our local Breast Cancer Support Group.  At the complex where I work, there was a huge outpouring of support and many of us have purchased and are wearing these shirts to work every Friday in the month of October.   Because so many bought the shirts, the local newspaper is taking a group photo of us wearing the shirts next week.  We're to meet prior to the start of our work day to snap the pic.  I think it's a great opportunity to continue awareness and support for such a worthy cause.  

Regarding my Mixpod song playing:  I love Adele and was so happy for her that she got the new 007 movie theme song. These lines from the lyrics are perfect for both this supportive post as well my new artistic venture, Fall Fearless and Fly at Artists in Blogland.  I'll be back by week's end with a post for that challenge.

Let the sky fall, when it crumbles
We will stand tall
Face it all together

That was a great idea selling those shirts. However, that cause needs attention year round, not just October.

There was a local event related to that in here as well! Happy Pink Saturday.
