Pink Saturday ~ Happy New Year

Hello bloggerettes and welcome to my last Pink Saturday post of 2011! Thank you Beverly for hosting your scrumptious pink party every week throughout the year. You are a most gracious hostess.

Before I share with you my favourite pink of the year, I want to thank each and every one of you for your visits, comments, and friendship over this past year. You have made blogging such a lovely pasttime and I cannot imagine my life without it or you! God bless you!

I thought you might enjoy some holiday pictures before I share my favourite pink.

Teacup Christmas Tree

A little faux mercury glass birdie was a gift.

My newest Snowbaby. She's called Goddess of Chocolate.

I collect SnowBabies from Department 56 and I have one named for each member of my family. This newest one is Jenna Lynn, named for my granddaughter. She is wearing a real knitted hat with a rosette on it. She also wears a little tutu, and carries in one hand, a chocolate cupcake which is topped with a pink candy. She wears her pearls and also carries a tote in the other hand with, you guessed it, chocolate! A gift from my hubby for Christmas this year.

Now for my favourite pinks.... The first is my beloved vintage Rose Chintz china which I collect. It is such a girly and romantic pattern, introduced by Johnson Bros. of England in 1883. Sprinkled with pink roses and pale blue forget-me-nots on a creamy white background, it is a pattern which I have loved since I was a little girl. Thank you Auntie P for getting me started in my fantasy which has now become a reality.

I have saved the best pink for last...

I am delighted you have visited Rose Chintz Cottage and I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy & Healthy New Year. May it be bright and pink, with many blessings. God bless you all!
