Make Mine Pink!

Hello dear friends~ Those of you who have stopped by this past week will have already seen this teacup. However, some of you haven't seen it so I'm sharing it again.

I love pink! My wonderful hubby chose this teacup for me when we were out and about browsing the antique shops.

Contrary to what some of you may think, he does not share my love for teacups and china.
He is however learning to use the right side of his brain so he can  appreciate it and he likes to accompany me to the shops. 
And while I indulge myself in looking at all the treasures found there, he likes to find other things such as old books and magazines.

So, having straightened you all out on that fact, here is one of my newest teacups.

It is the perfect shade of pink!

It is an Anysley for all you teacup lovers out there. And doesn't it go splendidly with my Rose Chintz!

Tea really does taste better in a china cup!

If you would like to see more of this teacup, please check out my previous post. Thank you so much for coming by for a visit.

I am sharing this post with:

Pink Saturday

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Hi Sandi! That beautiful cup is indeed the perfect shade of pink. I would love some of that pattern to go with my rose chintz. I'm sure I told you but I have three generations of Rose Chintz in my collection. We don't use it every day but I never grow tired of it.

    Wishing you a wonderful day! – g

  2. Otra bella taza nos muestras.

  9. Well I had not seen it and think it's gorgeous. Bet the tea taste better also, that is what my hubby says when I get a new cup set. Hugs, Lu

  10. My dear husband, although he enjoys antiquing with me, still says there should be a hardware or tire store next to every antique shop or gift shop! I do love that teacup!

  11. I love this cup and saucer. I love the shape and the design on the cup.

    These cabinets are messing up my blogging this week but I can't wait to join the tea gang next week.

  14. very pretty cup and saucer and I envy you right now in the land of Anne...the prettiest Island ever...wishing you a beautiful day out day....will stand with you at the Lake of shining waters.

  15. Does your hubby read your posts? Mine does, and I must say he too is becoming more agreeable to me looking for teacups. But, don't ask him to drink from one!
    I worry that no one will want my treasured collection when I'm gone. :-(

  16. Beautiful!!! I love tea cups! I have some of my grandmother's demitasses cup collection, too. Did you see my post about them?

    I enjoyed visiting with you. . .

  17. Yes Sandi, it is the perfect shade of pink and looks lovely with your chintz!
    I am a lover of old books too -especially christian ones - so I'd need to use both sides of my brain to go shopping with you, lol!
    love and blessings..Trish

  18. That was so sweet of him! :) My hubby just doesn't get it. :( But he does try. :) This is a beautiful tea cup.


  19. A beautiful teacup and saucer Sandi. I agree, the color is perfect for your Rose Chintz! I should say, your husband certainly does know how to shop for beautiful teacups. Happy Pink Saturday!

  20. Your "fellow" has good taste. I love all your pretty pink cups.

  21. Hi Sandi, your cup really is the perfect shade of pink. I love it with your Rose Chintz! My hubby does not share my passion for vintage items. But he too let's me indulge and will go with me when vacationing. At home he let's me go by myself, well actually with friends. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cup with Share Your Cup.

  22. Sandi, each one is delightful. Happy Pink ~ Sarah

  23. It does go beautifully with the the color and I love that your Sweetie likes to go with you .
    Happy Pink Saturday

  24. That pink grabbed my attention on Beverly's links. It's a neat design/style - very attractive and even more so w/you chintz china - both complimenting each other quite well.

    I was wondering if we'd see some old magazines or something too! :) I'm sure that tea tastes especially good in that particular tea cup, being blessed w/your husband's choice for you! Little things. . .wonderful.

    Enjoyed my visit!

  25. Fantastic find, lovely treasure, so pretty. Have a wonderful PS.

  26. Hi Sandi...such a beautiful cup. I just always love pink! Never get tired of it. Hope you have a lovely weekend.
    Love ya,

  27. Oooh, pretty! And delicate and elegant - what a find!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  28. Hi Sandi,
    What a gorgeous pink teacup - I love it! And how good that your hubby is willing to jump over his shadow ;o))
    Hugs from Austria,

  29. Oh my what a beautiful tea cup and how sweet for your hubby to think of you!

  30. I think your teacup is beautiful. My hubby said he liked it when I collected sailboats more than my teacup collection. Oh well, I love them so it's all good! Happy Pink Saturday! Have a nice weekend.

  31. Hi Sandi,
    I looked at both posts of this cup. It is so lovely, and yes, the perfect shade of pink! I especially love that photo of the cups in the cloche.
    Hugs, Cindy

  32. How lovely!

    My PINK, your comment is always highly appreciated! Have a great weekend.

  33. Gorgeous! Playing catch up with Pink Saturday, didn't want to miss all the beautiful entries this week.

    My PINK
    Your comment makes me happy.
    Have a blessed Sunday.


  34. I think the first quote saying to have tea & then talk of happier things is so apropos especially in light of recent events. An early morning spent in delightful conversation with friends over tea is just what we all need!

  35. Beautiful cups Sandi! Thanks for joining me at Home Sweet Home!


I am delighted to have you visit me and I read every comment. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you all as there are so many of you lovely bloggy friends now. I will visit as much as possible. I wish you a day filled with JOY! ~ Sandi
