Pink Saturday and A Winner!

Good Morning everyone ~ Pink Saturday is here again and we are so happy that Beverly is hosting this event. Lots of pink and lots of participants can be found at this site

Do you know that two months from today is Christmas Eve? It will be here before we know it. Someone is going to have this cute pink ornament to hang on their tree or place in a wreath this year. But before I get to that and before I share my pinks today, I would like to introduce a blogger I 'met' last week on Pink Saturday~

Tricia at Altered Schoolmarm The photo above is what she shared last week on her post, a pretty soup tureen and other pink china that left me swooning! Isn't it gorgeous? Love the lace on the windows too; very charming! Please stop by and pay Tricia a visit. I'm sure she would love to hear from you.

Today I have a couple of pinks to share with you!
I found this little bowl at the Dollarama for, you guessed it, one dollar! It is twice the size of a cereal bowl and is decorated with little pink roses. I use it for serving dressing or veggies in.

This is another one of my many teacups which I received for a shower gift many years ago. I love teacups with the flowers on the inside of the cup. This one is made by Royal Albert.

Now onto my Giveaway....

I put all your names into this lovely piece of Cranberry glass and drew the name.
....and the name of the winner is: Olde Dame Penniwig Congratulations Dearie! Please let me know how to get in touch with you and I'll get this little ornie into the mail for you.I want to thank you all for entering my Giveaway and helping me to celebrate my one year Blogiversay. I appreciate all of you, your friendship, and your lovely comments. Those of you who entered my Giveaway are welcome to take this Award I made for you. That way, everyone wins something!

"You're the Blossom in My Garden"

I have a quote by Marcel Proust which I have written on the bottom of my blog.

"Let us be thankful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom."
I like to think of you all as flowers in my garden and I took my inspiration from this quote to make you the Award. God bless you!

Thank you for coming by today and I hope you all have a wonderful Pink Saturday weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi
