Pinks for Pink Saturday and Open House

Hello bloggy friends and welcome to my cottage.

This past week I shared a new vintage teacup at my tea party and I thought you pinkies might enjoy seeing it too since it is pink.

I love the look of stacked teacups, don't you? Especially when they're pink!




My new vintage teacup with a pink rose snuggled up to it........







I am also sharing some posies from my garden this past Summer.
Alas, they are all gone now but we can enjoy the pictures. 

"In my garden there is a large place for sentiment. My garden of flowers is also my garden of thoughts and dreams." ~ Abram L. Urban


Bleeding hearts....







"The serene philosophy of the pink rose is steadying.
Its fragrant, delicate petals open fully and are ready
to fall, with regret or disillusion, after only a day in
                                   the sun.
                        It is so every summer.
One can almost hear their pink, fragrant murmur as
               they settle down upon the grass:
"Summer, summer, it will always be summer." ~ Rachel Peden


One of my rose bushes with petals upon the grass.



Roses with a wee bit of bridal veil under lace....


Roses in a teapot. Oh, I so miss the fragrance of my roses!



I hope you have enjoyed my pinks. I am joining Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound and Bernideen for Open House.
Wishing you all a delightful weekend!

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi

What more would ask for than beautiful flowers and a spot of tea in one these lovely cups. I would be afraid to stack them.

Beautiful pinks - love that pink teacup. I saw one somewhere else recently and I've spent a few minutes scrolling your blog trying to be sure it wasn't here. I didn't "find myself" here (in a comment elsewhere). . . so must be just a similar post elsewhere.

Great verse with your post too. Love your rose petal "snow". And, you have tons of green - we so need rain!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving me a note!

Happy Pink Saturday.

Honestly those have to be the prettiest teacups I have ever seen. I have a thing for pink flowers on dishes and teacups so these are just my style. Your flowers are beautiful, too. I have always liked bleeding hearts and of course the pink ones are my favorite. I always enjoy your blog.---------
