Pink Saturday

"Happy Pink Saturday" Good morning and welcome to my blog. Today we are celebrating pink again; a soft, dreamy, feminine colour which always makes a 'girly' statement.
Beverly, I thank you for hosting this event again today and I hope you will all go pay her a visit and the other pink participants too. Simply click on the link or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar.
This week, I would like to introduce you to Patricia at "Coquettish Fleur." She has a wonderful blog with many vintage touches. Please go check her out today at
Today I have a couple of pinks for you~

This past week, a friend and I went down to The Old General Store in Murray River, a small town on the Island. They have all sorts of wonderful things at the store and lo and behold, I found this! A Coventry Garden Tea-for-One set and it was 30% off!
I had gotten the matching handled plate down there last year, and I was thrilled to find the Tea-for-one set there also! I found the matching round scalloped plate at the hospital gift shop. I love this pattern! I am collecting these little tea-for-one sets and now I have three of them. Many folks when they come to visit me, like to have different teas. So, I thought it would be a nice idea to serve tea in their own little teapot.

Love this little silver one with the white flowers on it!

Next door to the Old General Store is another shoppe where they sell all kinds of merchandise; carvings, ornaments, rocks, jewellery, etc. My friend can't wear jewelery with any metal on it except gold and at this store, they make a necklace for you using only a leather cord and the stone of your choice. She bought three necklaces for herself and she treated me to this one, a pretty polished pink stone on a brown cord. You can adjust the cord as long or short as you like.
Thank you for stopping by today. Please make your way over to visit all the other pinkies and have a wonderful Pink Saturday weekend!

Sharing from my heart ~ Sandi

The pink pot (complete with tray and plate) is very, very pretty! I also think your idea of serving different person their very own tea set is fun!

Thank you for stopping by 'Aunt Amelia's Attic' and saying Hello! And especially thank you for saying such sweet things.

What a lovely P-I-N-K blog you have here!!!

I to love P-I-N-K and used to have a "totally Pink" blog. It's only quite recently that I actually tried using some different colors, in its makeup. But as you can see, Pink still shows up, in 'The Attic." :-)

Gentle hugs,
Aunt Amelia

Sandi, what a perfect gift of a necklace for someone that can't wear metal. The stone is so pretty and lite pink too. I also had a teapot and cup like yours. Not the same pattern, but the set. It broke and I tossed it, what a mistake, I should have kept the pieces and done a mosiac with them. Oh well, what's gone is gone and on we go. Your collection is just perfect, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Riet said...

What a lovely post. I love that teapot for one. I have the white one you also showed. It is such a good idea to make different teas in different pots.I am doing to look for more.
Happy pink Saturday

When the blossoms of summer begin to fade we can always count on Pink Saturday to bring a smile to our faces and to remind us that somewhere there are pastels and pretty things.

Thanks so much for sharing this week. I wish you sunshine and lollipops today and always.
