Pink Saturday~ It's Lilac Time!

Welcome to Pink Saturday with Beverly and all those of us who love the colour pink. We are a unique bunch who can't seem to get enough of this luscious colour and that is one of the many reasons why we gather on Pink Saturday to show off our pink wares.

You know, it is a well known fact that the colour pink is the colour of universal love! It is a quiet colour and lovers of beauty favour pink.
It is the softer and sweeter side of red, and is often referred to as the 'sugar and spice and everything nice' colour!
Pink provides feelings of caring, acceptance, tenderness, self-worth and love. Put some pink in your life when you want:
Calm feelings, to neutralize disorder, relaxation, acceptance, and contentment.
It is a peaceful colour besides being just plain pretty! See how pretty this piece of pink quartz is!And now, on to my pinks. The lilacs are out in full bloom here on the Island and my sweet hubby brought me a bouquet of them. I couldn't think of a prettier container to put them in than my Rose Chintz milk jug. I never tire of this pattern! I think the jug is perfect with its pink roses and tiny blue flowers to showcase these romantic blooms. Don't you agree?I love how the sweet fragrance of lilacs fills the house! Would you care to sit and join me for a cup of tea and fill your senses with the scent of lilacs before we go any further?Yesterday, Hubby and I went shopping and I picked up a couple of pink things. This pink tote, I plan to use for storing some of my craft supplies. It is perfect in pink and transparent as well which makes seeing what's inside easier. Lastly, I saw these darling flip-flops and just had to have them! What could be prettier on the tootsies, fresh from the shower or bubble bath, than these pink sparkly flip-flops adorned with gorgeous sequins?

Now, why not skedaddle on over to Beverly's How Sweet the Sound and make your rounds of all the pinkness being offered out there today in Blogland? Just click on the link or the Pink Saturday button on my sidebar. Have a wonderful pink day everyone!


  1. Sandi:
    Once again you have enhanced a simple word such as 'pink'. Who else but Sandi would think to add these thoughts to this delicate color? Only Sandi who is soft, caring and a pleasing person to know. Thank you for the thoughts....Auntie P
