Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday bloggerettes ~

Hope you've all enjoyed this first week of July. I have a few pinks to share with you today.

First up, a set of little stoneware ice cream bowls. When I saw these little bowls, I just couldn't resist them! They had to come home with me! I love the soft ice cream colours; the little green one is pistachio, then strawberry, coffee, and chocolate. Yes, there is a pink one! Aren't they the cutest!



Next is a footed cake plate I found at Winners. This looks a lot like pink Depression glass and I couldn't pass it by. It has a scalloped edge with a lovely little vine running round the edge of the plate.


Purty?

And for all you Royal fans; here are a couple of photos of the royal couple taken here on Prince Edward Island this past week. As you can see, Kate is wearing a pretty soft pink jacket over her dress and pink shoes as they embark from the plane.


The lovely Kate holding the bouquet she was presented with. The bouquet had some pink posies in it.


The Island was enamoured by the fabulous couple! They were very down-to-earth and they made quite an impression here on us.

Well, those are my pinks for this week. Thanks for visiting and I hope you will stop by and see all the pink Beverly http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/  has for us today.
Wishing you all an extraordinary pink weekend, my dear friends.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

I love those ice cream bowls cause I love ice cream. I saw the pink cake servers at Winners too but had to pass - no room in the cupboard! Have a lovely weekend. I've been praying for you today and trust all is well. Blessings, Pamela

Lovely pinks! The bowls are darling. The cake plates are everywhere reproduced in pink right now. I nearly bought one at the store the other day. They make such a dramatic table setting. Adora Willima & Catherine.

Have a lovely PS weekend.

Your bowls are darling, Sandi. And isn't Kate the most graceful woman since Grace Kelly? And so comfortable in her role - she always looks like she's happy.
Cute post. xoxo Nancy

Happy Pink Saturday Sandi Sweetie...
Love your pink shares today. So pretty. Love the bowls, and I believe they need a little pink strawberry ice cream in them as well. Yummy.

That cake plate is gorgeous. I have a green one, but LOVE your pink.

The photo of Catherine in pink is gorgeous. She is going to be a trend setter for sure. So delightful to see her and William out and about.

Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Love those bowls. And the cake plate is great! I really want one now, so I guess I'll start looking!

The Royals are here in LA now, apparently, but not in my neck of the woods, so I won't be seeing them.

Hope you have a lovely Pink Saturday!
