Happy Pink Saturday!

Hello bloggerettes ~ Pink Saturday is here again as well as another long weekend. Many thanks to our lovely hostess Beverly who brings together all her pinkies from all over the globe to celebrate our love of pink.

The other day, I delivered a birthday present to a good friend of mine and she blessed me with something back. Don't you just love surprises like that?

She is one of those gals that goes garage sale hunting every weekend and on one of her sprees she found this little gem and thought of me. Wasn't that thoughtful of her?

This lovely piece looks and feels like Jasperware/Wedgwood but there is no mark on the bottom. So, I would assume someone had painstakingly made it. A very lovely job someone made of it too, and it's pink!
Regardless of a mark or not, I have a very thoughtful friend!


The Grecian figures are raised as is the leaf motif around the edge of the top.


There is also a thin band all the way around near the base.


Not sure what I will do with it. I may make it into a topiary. The base would be pretty for a topiary, don't you think? What would you do with it? Any ideas?



Thanks for visiting today. Please be sure to check out more pinks at how How Sweet the Sound and have a lovely pink Labor Day weekend everyone.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

That is a lovely little vase. My first thought was Wedgwood but then it would have the name on the bottom. Happy pink Saturday

Marking are not important. It is the thought that counts.

Moogie said...

I absolutely adore Pink Saturday. What fun it is to browse through all of the posts. Your vase is stunning!

How thoughtful ! I think a topiary would be lovely ... I have some pretty planters I use on my dresser to hold hairbrush, mirror etc. You could use it to hold silverware as well.

That was a thoughtful thing for your friend to do. The vase is very pretty and I'm sure you love it. I think however you decide to use it, it will still be beautiful. The soft pink color and the figures make it look so delicate. I love it!

It reminds me of a very decorative planting pot. Of course, it's much too pretty and pink (smiles) to put planting soil in. As creative as you are, I'm sure you will find a good use for it. :)

So sweet of your friend to give you that sweet vase. A topiary would be good. Candy maybe...holding things on your vanity sounds good too!

Have fun with it!

Hi Sandi,
I love your pretty little pink container. I would just sit it on a shelf and admire it until another idea comes along. So pretty.
