What a fun time, Dana! You even had your picture taken with Harry Truman! Did you know, he came to Houston Mo, in 1958 to dedicate the new hospital. I was a sophomore at HHS and in the band(French Horn). I was honored to participate in playing the national anthem that day. Happy memory! We enjoyed touring the library and his and Bess' home a few years ago.

No wonder those Hostess cupcakes are gone - I never buy them because I like them more than the bakery cupcakes! So you can't really fault Mr. Dana for scarfing them up! Love your picture with Harry S. Truman - he looks great for his age and being dead, too! You are lucky to live so close to such a neat place - did you get plants that day? Those mixed pots are so beautiful. I have nada, zilch and none annuals right now - it's just so dry and hot I'd be just throwing $$$ away. Have a wonderful weekend, Dana. xoxo Nancy

Pink Hostess cupcakes....I just got back from the store. I will have to look for them next time! I LOVE Hostess Cupcakes!

I need pink Hotess Cupcakes!! Great post Dana.

What a nice flower market! Happy Pink Saturday!

It all looks so fabulous...it would have been dangerous for me to be around those goodies though. I agree, Harry looks great for a dead guy. (No disrespect intended, just sayin')

What a great and very pretty place to visit. I would have loved being there with you.

Happy Pink Saturday
Great photographs and those cupcakes look so delicious.

What a fun post, Dana! I always enjoy stopping by and reading about your latest venture.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Oh Dana..you are so cute. Your posts are always so entertaining. The market looks fabulous for shopping..so many goodies! Enjoy your weekend!
Happy pink Saturday..xo Tami

What fun you always seem to have Dana! I think your spirit and outlook on life is very contagious.

May you have a fantastic weekend (and the Stone Rabbit, too!)


Looks like a fun sale Dana, glad the weather cooperated! I love that local merchants came out to participate:@)

What a great series of pretty shots. You all must have had such fun. The flowers and that hanging basket are gorgeous. I know I would have spent every dime in my purse so it is a good thing I am looking at your pictures rather than having been there in person. HPS.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Well...now I want one...a cupcake...of course! Lovely post!

Wow Dana, I haven't purchased any plants this year because my sister would have to water them. I hang plants off our deck every summer. Sharleen was so lucky to find that gorgeous hanging plant. It is huge. Everything looks beautiful on the courthouse steps. I would love to be able to go to the flower fun!

I think the cupcakes are so pretty and displayed perfectly in pink. I have to tell you cupcakes do not make me want to eat them. Maybe it is because I have baked a gazillion of them when my five kids were in school, band and sports. I don't need them anyway. I probably would like the pink hostess cakes though. They have CREAM inside.HA!

I did spend a couple of hours at the antique store this morning. I bought something I so do not need. I caved and bought them anyway. I found four two handled soup dishes with a plate that matches. Made in England and they are green and creamy white, which is my favorite color. Kind of like transfer wear but prettier. They are vintage and I will post them in a few days.

Well, Bill and I are playing cards so I better get back to them. He was on the phone for a few minutes so I rushed over to say hello. Love the phto of you and harry. smile.
Love, Jeanne

I always look forward to see what the Stone Rabbit is up too weekly. Those homemade cupcakes looked really yummy. No wonder they were all gone. See you next week.

WOW! The stone rabbit is quite the polite eater...no cuppy cake on his whiskers! What a wonderful stroll around your neck of the woods. Thank you so much for letting me walk with you.
Wags, Niki

Jillian was telling me about cake pops and I was asking her what in the world were "cake pops" so she told me you had pictures of them on your blog. I came over to see them and saw all the beautiful flowers (I liked the Gerber Daisies you picked out) on the courthouse steps. What a neat idea for a flower show and sale - especially with Harry around for the fun. Finally, your weather there looks gorgeous and I hope you and SR are enjoying it as we are ours! Have a great Pink Saturday and weekend.


Dana..This is an adorable post...and we all knew the STONE RABBIT to have such great taste!
And if you find a good hiding spot for your yummy treats PLEASE let us know...we will keep your secret BUT it seems here too...folks sniff out all the pink treats!

Oh, Dana, I soooo love the florals! Awesome. What a wonderful marketplace. And, those yummy stick cakes....
Have a beautiful PS week ~

Your town square is really grand. I've never been to Independence MO - will definitely need to visit sometime!

Dana- Looks as if you had a Perfectly Pink day! I love open air markets.
It looks as if you might love bunnies too... I would love it if you would join in my new blog party called Bunday Monday a.k.a. "Show Me the Bunny". Hope to see you on the bunny trail Monday!
Blessings, L

What fun! And what lovely flowers. Wouldn't my senior mom have loved to do some gardening shopping there as well! Then again, my scales might not have been happy as I KNOW I'd have been indulging in way too many of those yummy looking pink goodies! Thanks for a delightful Pink Saturday visit.

Oh, I love the idea of that open air garden market. What fun. The hanging baskets are simply gorgeous. I can't wait to see what you do with your gerber daisies.

Happy Pink Saturday, Dana! Hope you are all safe from bad weather.

I think I just gained 5 lbs reading through your Pink Saturday post! Yuuum! I love how your friend wore a pink jacket in case you needed a oicture! Adorable!

Nice to meet you and Happy Pink Saturday!xox

Happy Pink
Oh darn you did not save me a cupcake?

Kay Ellen

Lovely place to shop and walk around...those treats look "Sweet". Happy PS.

What a nice post! and it looks like you had a great time...I love the cupcake pictures! Pinkim

What a fun outing ! Those flowers were gorgeous !!!! I just love checking out what the silly rabbit is up to .... I'm thinking HE ate all the pink cuppy cakes !!!!


Dana, those baskets are gorgeous. How did you resist? And, I love gerbera daisies, too.

You are torturing me with those cupcakes. I looked in several stores again yesterday. I'm not giving up.

Harry Truman was my father's favorite president. I can only imagine what my father would have thought of a few others we have had since.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear friend.

Wow Beautiful flowers, cupcakes, and Pres. Truman. What a great day.

Stay in the pink


Beautiful flowers!!! And I did not know about the pink Hostess cupcakes, you can bet I will keep an eye out for them next time in the grocery store ;)
Summer has finally arrived and the A/C is going to get a workout this week.

HPS a bit late! I am trying to get through as many pinks as well as my Spiritual Sunday gang! Those cake pops are wicked! Your flowers are gorgeous in your hometown! what fun and the old prez himself in all his glory! Amazing! Thank you for sharing such fun and enjoy the upcoming week! Anne

Love this post! The best plants I've found this year were here on the Square! Too bad it's only once a year

Ok, I just gained 5 pounds looking at the yummmmmy cakes! What a fun town square! The multitude of flowers was fabulous!

My favorite treat hiding place is in my stamping tower! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful event in your town. I always enjoy how you think to make such interesting posts out of everyday happenings, along with your great sense of humor!
