It's all about PINK!

This weekend I have the wonderful honour of being a part of Jude's "In the Pink Retreat". Jude is a breast cancer survivor and to give back Jude has managed these wonderful events at her 'Sanctuary' in Bordertown every year. It is a true home away from home and we are all very, very spoilt as we raise funds for the Breast Cancer Support Network. For me it was a four and half hour drive from home with two short stops on the way. We were greeted with pink, pink and more pink and first up under Raelene's instruction we were told we were making pink paper flowers (!!)……

 The flowers appeared everywhere even in the garden……...

 The fun begins inside where the house is decorated in even more pink! Over the weekend we can stitch, quilt or just natter but the best part is the bidding so we can take home some amazing donated items…….
 This year Jude made a delightful quilt that we all want to win………...

 Meals even have a pink theme and the pink potato on the cottage pie was delicious…it was mixed with beetroot and feta dip!…...
 So with hats on the bidding began……..
 and this is the "money" that we purchase goodies with but we do buy the pink play money with the real thing…….
So stay tuned for more pink adventures!
