Pink Saturday

Hello bloggerettes! Hope you all had a wonderful week and all my American friends, a bountiful Thanksgiving!

Once again it's Pink Saturday and like everyone else, I'm looking for pink in my home. No problem this time of year as I always decorate for the Holidays with lots of this scrumptious colour.

Do you like mercury glass? Well, I love mercury glass, especially the gold and pink! So for today's post, I'm sharing my pink mercury glass hurricane lamp. It is fancied up with a glittery pink poinsettia, hydrangeas, and fruit. The hydrangeas are the same ones I used in the little tree and wreath I shared earlier this month. The poinsettia looks red but it really is more pink! Love all the sparkle and glitter!

As some of you know, I have my first granddaughter due on Christmas Eve. I have never bought a pink teddy bear before! Everyone of my grandsons got their first teddy from us {Nanny and Papa} and they were either blue or brown.

I am getting a Christmas parcel ready to send out west to my son and his family for Christmas and my little granddaughter's first teddy bear will be in the parcel. It is the softest and most huggable pink!

Cute, huh?

Well, pinkies those are my pinks for this week. Be sure to visit our hostess Beverly to see all the pinks out there.
I hope you all have a marvellous pink weekend!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

Happy Pink Saturday Sandi Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I love, love the mercury glass and this pink one is SO pretty. It looks gorgeous with the poinsettia around it. So fun.

I also love the little teddy bear for the grand daughter who is coming. (Christmas is such a fun time of year for us around here as well. We have one grand daughter that was born on Dec. 21st and another grand daughter that was born Dec. 25th. Yes Christmas Day.) Christmas babies are SO special. I tell mine only angels could be born this time of year.

Thank you for the beautiful share today. It is so lovely. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

The pink mercury glass is pretty. You'll love buying pink for your granddaughter. A few years ago, I used to make little girl things and sold them to a friend. She always insisted on pink even though the mom was sick of it. The little girl however took after grandma and loved pink, so it all worked out well. I have a feeling you'll be taking after that grandma too. :)

Oh, I just love mercury glass, I have it in silver tones in ornaments and candle holders. I love it in pink and it looks so beautiful next to that frosted Pointsettia, and your Hydrangeas.

Happy Pink Saturday,

So pretty Sandi. I have never seem mercury glass that color. The teddy bear will be a much loved possession to that sweet bundle of joy.

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Oh Sandi, How exciting! A Christmas baby! What is her name? Will you get to go see her? After having two sons, having two grand-daughters has been a delight. I sent the 1 year old a new Christmas dress. Guess what color? White with pink was precious. Come to think of it I should have shown it for Pink Saturday. Anyway.....congratulations on the baby girl and Happy Pink Saturday. xoxo P.S. Love the glitter and pink poinsettia!
