Pink Saturday ~ Guest Post

Hello dear friends and welcome to Pink Saturday!
Today I am honoured to be Beverly's featured guest. I have been pinking with Beverly for close to four years now and it has been through her pink party, that I have met so many of you, my lovely friends.

Thank you Beverly for your faithfulness in hosting every week and a Very Happy Anniversary is wished for you and your hubby next Tuesday!

Beverly asked me to share a wee bit about myself~
I am a home-maker at heart and Mom to three wonderful sons and Nanny to five adorable grandchildren. My hubby and I have been married for forty years and we are still very much sweethearts.

I enjoy reading, writing/blogging, music, crafting, decorating, afternoon tea, photography, and thrifting.
I love taking walks along the beach and through the woods. I also host my own tea party meme called Tea Time Tuesday here every week and I would love to have you join me.

"Happiness is a perfume you cannot pour on others without getting a few drops on yourself." ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is where I have spent most of my Summer.

We have the nicest beaches here on the Island! Yup, I wear pink flip-flops too!

Please help yourself to a cup of tea in one of my pink teacups.
I am a girly-girl and anyone who knows me, understands that I love tea things. Teapots, teacups, and different kinds of tea are some of the collections you will find in my home.

Over the years, I have collected many things; dolls, thimbles, SnowBabies, etc:, but I have always had a passion for pretty china and tea things. Now that my children are all grown up and on their own, I can indulge in my fantasy.

This is one of my favourite tea sets. 

Underneath it is a favourite table cloth. Did I tell you that I love  pretty linens too?

Being the girly-girl that I am, I had to have a pink Princess phone....

I adore pink roses too....

This past Spring, when I was in a crafting mood, I made some topiaries for the mantel. They will be replaced with something Autumnal very shortly.

It's just about that time again, and I am lovin pink pumpkins! I painted this wee pumpkin pink and added glitter and posies.

Last year Hubby and I treated ourselves to a new bedroom set and so I have been on the hunt for a toile bedspread/quilt. I found one a couple of months ago and decided to share it with you today....

"Friendship is precious, not only in the shade, but in the sunshine of life." ~ Thomas Jefferson

Auntie P's pink handmade afghan looks fabulous with it!

I still have some tweaking to do in the room so I have given you just a wee glimpse.

Before you go, I would like to share my favourite collection of all; some of my Rose Chintz china.

This china really makes my heart go pitter pat!

Breena, my little fairy friend, and I would like to thank you for stopping by today. I hope you have enjoyed my pink. Now, please  visit our hostess and see her parade of pinkies. Simply click on the link below. Wishing you all a fabulously pink weekend. God bless!

  6. Nice seeing you featured today. You shared a lovely pink presentation.

    A Sister in Christ,

  8. Hi Sandi! I'm so glad you showed the ocean/beach! I love it when you show photos of anything and anywhere on the island! I wish I could go there. I would love it if sometime you would show the places that are in the Anne movies or Road to Avonlea shows. Were most of the buildings just sets. What about The White Sands Hotel?
    As for your that teaset that you said is one of your favorites. And you know I love your Rose Chintz too. That pink pumpkin is too cute! Have a great weekend!

  9. For a woman with a family of men, you have so many gorgeous linens and china in pink Sandi. I really like the new quilt you found.
    Congratulations for being featured at Pink Saturday, I often read your posts but rarely comment as I have enough to say when we bloggers gather for tea each week.
    Have a nice weekend.

  10. Sandi, you certainly deserve to be featured by Beverly with all your beautiful pink things.
    Such a lovely post filled with femininity and grace!
    I love your pretty toile bedcover and Aunty P's knitted throw.
    The beach looks so calm and relaxing, it would be easy to while away the summer days there!
    Have a blessed day, my friend.

  11. What a lovely post - and how fun to be a guest blogger.

    Sandi you are such a pink girly-girl and are the perfect person as a guest for PINK SATURDAY.

    Congrats- and this post is truly lovely, my friend.

    Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs. ♥

  12. Hi Sweet Sandi,
    It has been a long time since I have been over to say "Hi." Summer was busy and left no time for blogging!

    Congratulations on being the featured blog....your beach pictures are wonderful and so are those darling pink sandals!

    As always, your china is to die for!
    Hugs to you!

  13. congratulations on being featured this week Sandi and a Happy Pink Saturday. I am so jealous of you! One of these days I would love o spend the summer at the beach....some day that day will come. :)

  16. Love all your pinks! So ultra fem and pretty. Congratulations on being featured. HPS!

  17. Hi Sandi, I did enjoy your beautiful post today and learning a bit more about you. Your love of pink is a sure sign that you are a the perfect "PINKIE" without a doubt. I too love all of your pinks but the Rose Chintz china is stunning. So is your tablecloth. I also admire your beautiful new quilt with a cute little animal to match. (I forgot what it was sitting so cute on your bed) Smile.

    Congrats on being featured and Happy Pink Saturday.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  18. There is nothing quite as perfect as the colour pink ! everything is so pretty x

  19. Dear Sandi,
    thank you for sharing your wonderful PINKS with us! They are all so lovely!
    I wish you a sunny weekend!
    Greetings, Siret

  20. Querida Sandi, he llegado, me he tomado una taza de té y he visto tus lindas fotos.
    Un beso y buen fin de semana

  21. Hi Sandi.....I thought of you yesterday....thought that I hadn't had time to stop by anyone's blog...and didn't want to not pop in and give you a huge hi. The kids are back in school and there's been so much running around...but...

    loved reading about you and seeing your 'pink' pictures. They always remind me of a softer way of life...more gentle than here in the city. Wishing you a beautiful weekend....

  22. Hi Sandi.

    Oh goodness - how lovely to meet you and visit your beautiful blog. I love your tea cups and pretty pink things and the bed spread - fabulous. I love that you post a Bible verse on your blog.
    It was so nice getting to know you via Pink Saturday.
    Thank you for sharing and for your nice comments about my blog - I will be following you also.

  23. Oh, Sandi!

    This was such a charming visit, and I've just looked my eyes full of your lovely PINKS today. Even MY Dish-Junkie heart is full and overflowing.

    It's a joy to see all your beautiful arrangements and collections, and it always feels so welcoming here.

    Thank you and Breena for the hospitality,

    rachel and all the fairies at our house

  24. So pretty Sandi! I love your pink phone!!

    Have a blessed weekend and congrats on your lovely feature today:))

    Happy PS,

    Kay Ellen

  25. Everything is so lovely! When you said you painted wee pumpkins I was obviously thinking 'small' instead of 'wee' because I squealed when I saw that little one next to your teacup! Your new bedroom is wonderful!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  26. Beautiful pink post. So much fun to see so much pink in your world. Love your flip flops, teaups "to die for" and that beach is divine.
    Happiness is looking at your pinky postings.

  27. Hi Sandi, You are a beautiful woman (inside and out), with beautiful collections. I loved the stacked teacups, and of course your beloved Rose Chintz china! Your new bedspread is so lovely. Thanks for sharing a little bit about yourself, and thanks for all the joy you bring to others here in blogland. I appreciate you!
    I will be joining you for tea on Tuesday.
    Hugs and blessings, Beth

  28. What a lovely pink post. I really enjoyed reading it. Oh to spend the summer at the beach! I love your topiary, pink pumpkin, and of course your china.

  29. Love, love all of your pinks. The bunny, the roses and that tablecloth is gorgeous. The time at the beach also sounds wonderful. Hugs, Lu

  30. What a beautiful blog! I found you through my daughter Stephanie with "theenchantingrose" and am so thankful that I did. I will visit you on a regular basis I am sure. :) I have a passion for lace, teacups and pretty things in pink.

    Blessings! Debbie

  31. What a lovely post as always. Love your new spread, look forward to seeing the rest of your bedroom. Love linens too. Beautiful post...

  32. What a lovely post about all things special to you, Sandi! Your new bedspread is so pretty, too.

  33. Hello Sandi! Thank you for visiting me for Pink Saturday. I am too am a little behind but I like to think of it as spreaking around the pink, as I try to visit blogs throughout the week.

    I was so excited to see your teacups, and yes, I am a collector as you might have guessed. My "Cup of Tea with Friends" is a marriage of my love for teacups and all things pink and my life as a military spouse. I would love to join you for "tea" on Tuesday, thank you for the invite, though now I'll never get any work done at the office as I sit her trying to decide which one to "debut". Hope you have a great "Pink Saturday" ...
