Pink Saturday

Hello bloggerettes~ Can you believe the weekend is here already? Before we know it, the Christmas trees will be going up!

It has been a very noisy couple of weeks on my street. They are filling in the ditches so there has been much rumbling, thumping, back-up beeping, and red clay floating in the air outside my front door.

What normally is a very quiet neighborhood has been turned into a construction zone! Early in the morning it starts and goes until supper time, oftentimes until dark. Talk about noisy and messy!

Whew! I am so happy we are getting our very deep ditches filled in but I will be glad when they're done! Even my music doesn't drown out the racket.

In spite of all the ruckus going on, one last brave little rose opened up on one of my bushes. I had to rescue it from the noise and chaos going on out there.

I think it's quite content to have been brought inside where it can be enjoyed, sitting in a little lead crystal vase on the window sill. There are some raindrops still clinging to its petals.

And here it lends itself to a little vignette; a cottagey candle lamp and my vintage teacups. These teacups were found in thrift shops and cost seven dollars each. Being Royal Albert and in perfect condition, I am thrilled to have them!

A little candle light makes everything more beautiful as does a pink rose!

Hope your weekend is beautiful and filled with pink! Happy Autumn! I am joining Beverly for Pink Saturday.

  1. Sandi, I love your Royal Albert teacups and only $7 each. How lucky you are. Such a pretty pink rose.
    Have a great weekend!

  2. This is a beautiful post Sandi
    Your photos are warming and homely.
    wishing you a peaceful week end

  3. Now Sandi, don't you be wishing for Christmas yet. :-)
    Royal Albert does make some of the prettiest teacups and your single pink rose is lovely.

  4. Beautiful vignette Sandi. I love your pinks and what a great buy on the Royal Albert teacups. Happy Pink Saturday.

  5. Hi Sandi,

    I love your teacups and what a perfect sweet vignette! Oh please don't say that about the Christmas Trees (although I've been thinking that too), I just pulled out the pumpkins....... Hope your weekend is lovely. Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday.

  6. I love! the "cottage candle lamp". It reminds me of an old church. Beautiful post. Wishing you some quiet times

  7. Lovely Sandi. I have one lone rose on my bush too! Have a great weekend.


  8. Lovely Sandi. I have one lone rose on my bush too! Have a great weekend.


  9. Hi Sandi,
    Hope things quiet down soon. I picked some roses today too as it sounded like they might drown tomorrow.
    Your teacups were a great buy. The china you asked me about came from the Salvation Army in Summerside.
    Enjoy your weekend,

  10. What a lovely pink rose and it goes so well with the Old English rose pattern. Lovely! I hope they finish the work around you quickly. Think how nice it will be when they're done....Have a great weekend.

  11. Lovely rose!

    My PINK
    Your comment is always a delight to read, leave me one when you can.
    Have a great weekend.

  12. I hope your neighbour hood returns to piece very quickly.

  13. That is an incredibly pretty rose, and looks particularly lovely in your vignette.
    I hope the work is soon completed, non-stop noise is such a nuisance, especially if you are used to quiet.
    You are right about Christmas, it soon creeps up on us once summer has ended.

  14. Hi Sandi, I think the little rose is much happier inside away from the chaos!
    Have a lovely Pink Saturday and weekend...xo Tami

  15. oh my, doesn't feel like fall ya'll one little bit :)
    Hope all the noisy work is done soon.
    Happy Pink Saturday !
