Hello friends and welcome to another Pink Saturday with our hostess Beverly.
I was planning to share a different post today but the rain prevented me from doing that so I will do that post another week. In its place, I decided to share some photos of my beloved Rose Chintz china.
Rose Chintz was first introduced in 1883 by Johnson Bros. of England.
I do love this china as it brings back such happy memories for me and it is adorned with many shades of our favourite colour, pink! One of my wee pink pumpkins snuggles up to the cups.
Most of these pieces were given to me by my sweet Auntie P. Her set was started for her when she was a young bride and she always used them when I was growing up. As a little girl, I loved her table set for dinner as it always looked so pretty to me. Even as a little girl, I loved china and the colour pink.
When I got married, I tried to find this same china but alas, this pattern was no longer in production. It was nowhere to be found around the Maritimes where I live. I was so disappointed!
Then, a few years ago, when Auntie down-sized into her condo, she passed many pieces of her Rose Chintz on to me. I'm so happy she did! Aren't they pretty?
I have since been able to get many pieces off eBay and a couple of blogger friends gifted me with a couple of pieces too.
It is such a sweet and feminine pattern which evokes a sense of romance, don't you agree?
Thank you Auntie, Carolyn, and Patti.
Thanks for visiting and I wish you all a lovely pink weekend filled with joy.
