Pink Saturday


Pink Saturday is here again and we're all looking forward to seeing what all the pinkies out in blogland are offering up today, aren't we?

One year when we were on vacation, we visited an Old Country Market and they had a collection of these wonderful plates. "Coventry Garden" fine porcelain by Skye McGhie. Well, I just couldn't leave without getting one! I love anything with roses on it, especially pink roses and this was no exception!
Then I saw this other piece in a little shop at the hospital and I got it to go with the other. They look so pretty together! I served up my Pudding Tarts on these the other night.

A couple of weeks ago, I saw an adorable little tea pot at Winners in the same pattern but because Mother's Day was coming, I didn't buy it. I've been kicking myself ever since because now of course, it is gone. Oh well, some one else is enjoying it now!
Ever since I redecorated the bathroom, I have been on the hunt for a couple of mirrors for over the little shelf in there. I haven't seen what I wanted and then it occured to me that I didn't have to have mirrors necessarily.
I have had these two prints for many years and I had them hanging in the living room. When I redecorated the living room, I put the prints away. But I always wanted to hang them somewhere because I always liked them.

These are the before and after pictures. They always had gold frames and I decided to paint them white and hang them in the bathroom.
One is a rose with a little cherub and the other is a peony with two little cherubs. They are very whimsical and just add a sweet touch to the room. I didn't distress the frames and I'm still thinking on that. What do you think?

Well, those are my pink offerings for another week. Hope you enjoyed your visit and please do come again. In the meantime, why not go visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for more pinks.

Blessings & hugs,
Sandi

Sandi, I so look forward to your gorgeous pink treasures, I'm sorry that you missed out on the tea pot, who knows you may find another one but at a much better price. Your bathroom re vamp is so pretty and I love the white frames with those pictures they stand out so much more.
Happy Pink Saturday, Sandi, and have a wonderful weekend.

It's raining cats and dogs in Upper Michigan today with oodles of cold wind. Not very spring-like so traveling from blog to blog on Pink Saturday is really a treat for me today.

Thanks so much for sharing a little something of yourself today. I really need all the pink I can get with the weather we are having☺

Hoping this weekend is filled with the j♥y of being surrounded by those you love and those who love you.

Happy Pink Sat. Sandi
Thanks for the advice. Things are getting better. Pink Bubble baths always make things better don't they?
Have a great weekend and I also love your rose treasures.
Love Claudie

Love all your pink roses. How amazing that you found a matching dish to go with the first one! I also like the frames painted white, it's much softer than the gold.

Thanks for coming by Loveleigh Treasures and have a great weekend!

Hi Sandi,

I went to a bunch of yard sales today and found the most adorable Chintz teaset. It's a child's size and it's not real, but it is perfect and it was only $3. Wahoo.

those gorgeous plates were meant to be yours, that is why you found them both, I love the frames in the white much more than the gold. I think they would look great distressed too. Would love to see the after.....happy pink saturday, Char

Lovely china - what a shame you didn't get it at the time... still, it shows there is still some around, so maybe you'll be luck next time. Happy Pink Saturday!
