Pink Saturday

Good morning Pinkies and "Happy Pink Saturday" to you all! Today, I have a few pinks for you to see.

The first is an angel that my son Joel gave me for Christmas one year. She has lace on her sleeves and her frock, spanish moss for hair, and pink crepe paper wings. There is some pink in her frock too. She holds her wreath by a pink ribbon. She's a cutie!
Then there is this white ceramic kitty that a girlfriend made me when Joel was born. As you can see, Miss Kitty has pink ears, a pink nose, and a very pink tongue. She has been in our home for over thirty years. Yesterday, I made an old-fashioned Gingerbread cake with my grandmother's Vinegar Sauce to pour over it. Very tasty! As much as I enjoy whipped cream with gingerbread, I find the cake is more delicious served with either the Vinegar Sauce or homemade pink strawberry-applesauce. It tastes wonderful with both! We enjoyed it with some candlelight and pink lemonade in my pink goblets. These dishes would normally fall into the red category, but they are really a pink floral pattern. I got the set just before Eatons went out of business. Most of them came from my mother as gifts at Christmastime. Won't you join us for some pink lemonade and Gingerbread? Just pour on some warm Vinegar sauce from my Rose Chintz pitcher or spoon on some applesauce from my little jam jar. Then, after your visit with me, please make your way over to Beverly's at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ for more pink treats today. Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh, I can just smell the ginger cake! I haven't had any since my Mom last made it many years ago. It was always a treat. I am going to have to try making one......
Your dishes are just exquisite!!!!!

Mary said...

I really like those dishes! That's the color of pink I have in my home, along with some of the softer pinks, too, of course! Your little angel is sweet, especially coming from Joel, and kitty is so cute, too! The gingerbread cake and lemonade are so yummy looking...I'll be right over! Happy Pink Saturday!

You know you are going to have to cough up that recipe for the Vinegar Sauce...

What pretty pinks you are showing today! The angel is just adorable, but being a cat fanatic, I have to most admire your pink-tongued kitty!

Charmed by Beauty said...

You made my mouth water as I remember my Mum's gingerbread and hot vinegar sauce. I have that recipe. Since I am the only one to eat it here I don't make it but it goes so nicely on cold days.

Love you Spirit Song blog too. Many will get encouragement from your experience with our Lord as you walked through to good health again......Love Auntie P

Loved the fairy dust floating through the air...quite clever! I also adore chintz and the old transferware dish patterns. They are so beautifully detailed.

Blessings on your day,

I would love to join you! I love gingerbread cake and you're serving my favorite kind of pink lemonade! Combined with your beautiful dishes everything looks perfect.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Claudia said...

The ginger cake looks yummy! I didn't know Eatons went out of business!! I guess it has been a while since I've been to Canada!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Drawn to The Sea said...

I love warm gingerbread with lemon sauce (& of course, real whipped cream). Lemonade would make a nice substitute for a warm summer day, thanks for the idea.

Pleasant day :-)

Happy Pinks..have a lovely week..

jeanne said...

Sandi, your pink today is so pretty. I love those dishes. The cake sounds and looks awesome. I think I would have to have whipped cream. Vinegar sounds, well vinegary. You have to tell us how to make it. BIG smile. Your angel is so sweet and so is the kitten. Gifts like that are a treasure.

Happy PS.
