Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday my pink bloggie friends! How quickly this fun event rolls around every week! I'm glad I found something to share with you all. But before I do that I want to extend my thanks to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday so faithfully every week. I know the time and effort it takes to keep a meme going as I have my own on Tuesdays.
Please click on the link to visit her and her party of pinkettes.

I would like to begin with a little something sweet I received in the mail about three weeks ago.... There are so many lovely and thoughtful people in the land of blogging. Patti, a lovely friend in the States, had found a piece of my favourite Rose Chintz china on one of her treasure hunts and she thoughtfully sent it on to me here in Canada; just because she wanted to bless me! It arrived wrapped sweetly in rosy pink tissue paper and a bow. How delighted I was to receive her gift with a beautifully written pink card!
I love this little fruit nappie with its pink rose and posies adorning the creamy background; another precious piece to add to my collection! Thank you, Patti. Patti is an old-fashioned kind of girl who loves all things vintage, including music. When you visit her blog, you will find a down-to-earth friend and wonderful music playing in the background. Please take a few moments to visit Patti @ Fill My Cup....with Beauty ~ She will make you feel more than welcome!

A few weeks ago, my hubby surprised me with a 'Rose Bud' teapot. You can see it in a post further down. Some of you suggested I go back and get the matching teacup; so I did! I don't normally splurge on china as I prefer to receive it as a gift from someone else, that way there is a sentiment attached to it.

However, last weekend Hubby and I went out for breakfast with some friends at our favourite tea room. While there I treated myself to this Maxwell and Williams teacup which comes with its own dessert plate. Love this pattern with the pink roses sprinkled all over the white background! Gold trim sets it off perfectly. Now we each have one, Judith! I'll bring my teapot and we'll sit and have some tea.

Here is the scenery outside the tea room. Gorgeous pink roses set off the lovely vistas in the background. It really is a lovely spot to go for tea!

That is the river Clyde in the background. The Lord has made us a beautiful world to live in, hasn't He?

One of my last pink summer roses snuggles up to the teacup. The pinks are a perfect match!
Does tea taste better in china teacup? Why, yes, it does!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone and enjoy your weekend!
I invite you all to stop by and join me on Tuesdays for my tea party, Tea Time Tuesday. I would love to have you! There is also a Giveaway on the horizon!
