Pink Saturday

Hello pinkie friends and welcome to another Pink Saturday. Today I have a couple of pinks to share with you. With the Fall rapidly approaching, I am doing some housecleaning and getting ready for the new season. I have been making some changes around my home and switching things around.

This is a birdhouse which I painted years ago and had sitting above the kitchen cabinets. I am taking all the birdhouses down and replacing them with teapots. So for now, this birdhouse is sitting on a table in the living room.

It is a soft aqua and cream with pink trim around the dormers and the door. There is also pink in the coleus leaves and the roses. Little birdie is quite happy perched among the posies! I'll leave this birdhouse on the table for a while.

Then there is this~

A beautiful hand painted tea cup which I won in a Giveaway from Amy at Vintage Porcelain Art. As you can see from the photos, there are little pink hand painted roses all over the cup and the saucer. Isn't it scrumptious? I love the pink and green colour combination! The teacup and the saucer both are trimmed in gold and Amy has also signed the bottom.

Thank you Amy, my friend! Please do stop by Amy's blog and see all her wonderful hand-painted creations. She's a very talented lady who specializes in the painting of china and almost every week she participates in both Pink Saturday and my tea party on Tuesdays.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you will take some time today to visit our lovely hostess Beverly @ and her party of pinkies. Wishing you all a marvellous weekend filled with pinkness and sunshine.

I invite you also to stop by on Tuesdays for Tea Time Tuesdays.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  7. Hi Sandi,
    That is a pretty teacup you won! Teapots displayed on top of your cupboards sounds pretty.
    Sounds like a good day tomorrow for the big yard sale-maybe I will see you there.


  8. Oh, the pinks are great...that birdhouse is really pretty..and I love the minty green satin ribbon accenting the pink flowers and the birdhouse...nice touch!!!

    Oh, I remember when you won Amy/Vintage Porcelain Art's giveaway. That was so fun to participate in...and you are right, the pink and green combination is lovely!!!! Have a great weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)

  9. Love the birdhouse! I too always seem to change things up as I Spring or Fall clean. Just keeps things interesting I think!

    Happy PS,

  10. Sandi, that is a beautiful cup & saucer that you won, especially since it has roses on it.
    I think it will be nice to display your teapots in the kitchen that way and look forward to a photo to see them.
    See you for tea on Tuesday.

  11. Happy Early Pink Saturday, Your birdhouse is great as is your Teacup, can't wait to see your Teapots when they are up in your kitchen! Pinky Hugs!

  12. Happy Pink Saturday. Your teacup is lovely and I will be sure to visit the blog of your friend who hand painted it for you. Have a great weekend.

  15. Your bird house is the perfect color and so is your beautiful teacup and saucer. I just love them. I am waiting to see the new look with your teapots. I bet it's so pretty. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  16. What a cute birdhouse...I LOVE the dormer windows. Dormer windows always remind me of my grandmother's house...sweet memories for me.

    While I like birdhouses, I love teapots more, so I'm with you on changing the decor a bit.

    That teacup from Amy is totally beautiful. She is an amazing artist.

    Finally, I noticed you added a profile photo of yourself. What a beautiful gal you are!! It's fun to see what you look like.

    Have a lovely day, sweet friend.
