Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday bloggy friends~ Once again the prettiest day of the week is here and we are all gathering at Beverly's to share our pinks.

For today's offering, I have a new cloche to share with you. I have assembled some pinky teacups beneath the glass and don't they look wonderful!For you teacup collectors, the teacups from top to bottom are - Rose Chintz by Gracie China, the lovely green one with the sweet little rosebuds on it is a hand-painted teacup which I won from Amy @ Vintage Porcelain Art -
and the last teacup is Rose Bud made by Maxwell and Williams.

A pair of kissing angels look pretty cute too and just right for the upcoming Christmas season. Even though these two cuties aren't pink, I couldn't help but share them with you too.
I am starting to decorate my little granddaughter-to-be's Christmas tree. She is due on Christmas Eve! And for those of you who don't already know, this is my first granddaughter and indeed the first little girl in the family! I have three boys and four little grandsons and now I'm about to have a little granddaughter too! So, this year, I am decorating my little white tree in honour of this blessed event.
This is one of the ornaments on the tree. There are three iridescent birdies and as you know there is always a pinky glow to anything iridescent. I guess the photo isn't very clear but trust me, these little birdies do look quite pink and sparkly on the tree!Then there is the little fairy which has the place of honour on the top. She is all dressed in white but her wings are iridescent so there is a pink tinge once again. Isn't she adorable? The walls in the den, which is where I have the tree, are painted a pale blue and the glow from the fairy lights makes it look rosy where the tree sits. I don't have the tree quite finished but when I do, I'll share it with you.

Well, those are my pinks for today. Thanks for stopping by. Please visit Beverly and her pink participants for more dreamy pinks.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

  5. Very exciting news that you will have a grandaughter to mentor on all things girly and pink. Your new cloche looks fab with the tea cups and the angels in it.

  6. Hi Sandi
    The teacups looks lovely under your new cloche.
    I think we are going to be seeing much more pink from you once your little granddaughter arrives. I guess I'm the lucky one with 2 daughters and 4 granddaughters. (2 grandsons as well)

  7. Sandi, grand daughters are the best. So fun to shop with and dress up. I love your cloche and esp the teacup with the green and pink. Like a cup of fresh air. Happy Pink Saturday, Char

  8. Yes the little angelis so adorable.
    I was born 3 days before Christmas so my mother named me Crystal Mary, my surname was White...
    I can laugh about it now but I waited years to get rid of the was just too much.
    May God richly bless your little granddaughter. Higs. CML

  9. Hi Sandi, The teacups look so pretty highlighted under the cloche and congratulations on the soon to be birth of your first granddaughter!
