Around My Cottage for Pink Saturday

Hello everyone and welcome to my Pink Saturday post. Many thanks to Beverly for hosting this pink party so faithfully every week.

Today I'm sharing a few pictures from around my cottage.

I've been busy baking. Shortbread anyone? Some are iced with pink frosting.

Old fashioned ribbon candy ornaments decorate a mismatched teacup and saucer.

Cup of tea and some gingerbread?

The musical Gingerbread House plays The Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy when you ring the doorbell. The gumdrops also light up and keep time to the music. A delight to my grandchildren!

Kitchen window.

Hurricane lamp centerpiece on the coffee table.

My wooden rocking horse, wearing a pink bow, sits by the fireplace.

A pink toile angel.

A little tree in the dining room.

The patio doors and chandy all decked out for the season.

A vignette in the main bath.

A pink mercury glass hurricane lamp in the bedroom.

This is part of my Christmas Village. The farm house, barn and silo, and water mill, I made for my father years ago.

They are all made of ceramic.

This Village is spread out along the ledge in our family room.

And finally our Christmas tree which is in the family room this year. It is covered in ornaments collected over almost forty years. Most are gifts from family members and friends and they hold much sentimental value. Burgundy and gold sheer ribbon is used on the tree and a collection of dolls and teddy bears wait beneath its branches.  

To see my fireplace mantel please see my last week's Pink Saturday post here.

Thank you for visiting and I wish you all  A Very Merry Christmas and  A Happy & Healthy New Year!
