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....

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!
