Pink Saturday

When I saw that Beverly at howsweetthesound had begun hosting Pink Saturday, I was tickled pink! You see, I am the original pink girl! I have a houseful of pink stuff!

A cute new kitchen apron covered in pink strawberries! I'm a messy girl in the kitchen!

I got this short black and pink nightie today. I love the ruffled edging!

These pink floral heart shaped dessert plates are some of my favorites. I found 6 at Marshall's.

I love this sweet little soft pink porcelain angel. She opens up like a little trinket box. I bought one for myself and one for my granddaughter a few years ago.

I know this picture looks odd...it is a potted "tree" I made for my daughters wedding seven years ago. My husband and I spent may hours cutting appropriate limbs, cementing them in white containers, spray painting them all white, wrapping them in white lights, and then wrapping the bases in white tulle & tying with a wide satin rose colored sash! We made 28 of them! They did look gorgeous both in the church sanctuary and at the country club for the reception! I saved two for our living room. You can see that the walls in the living room are painted a soft rose color. I told you I am the original pink girl!

This metal pink container is filled with faded pink roses and it hangs on the door to my painting room. It's very simple but I love the change from a wreath.

I think this was intended to be a bird feeder but I love it in our living room. It is rose glazed clay and the rim is covered with roses and two sweet little birds. I usually fill it with dried rose buds and/or shells.

My husband bought me this pretty in pink porcelain "society" lady years ago in an antique shop which has long since closed. The bottom is dated 1956 and is signed by the artist.

I have a weakness for cake plates! I have developed a pretty large collection of both new and antique cake plates and pedestals over the years. I love this pale pink pedestal, which my husband bought for me on a trip several years ago to a town in northern Michigan where we have a cottage.

Finally, what girl can resist Cinderella's Castle, especially when lit up in pink?! I took this picture at Disney World last month.

I love your blog template. It's gorgeous. Pink is my color and I love the other colors you use as well.
Hope you can stop back by my blog to read about our new Spiritual Sundays blog.
Have a great weekend.

Hi Kathy,
Look at all your lovely pink goodies. Your blog presentation is so whimsical, too. I have a weakness for cake plates myself along with lots of other weaknesses for pretty things. :0)
Have a great pink saturday.

Beverly said...

Kathy, welcome to your first Pink Saturday. I am so glad you are participating, and I hope you will continue. I apologize for not seeing your e-mail, and for getting you on the list late.

You truly are the original pink girl. And, I love all of your pinks. Those pink heart-shaped plates are glorious.

You have great pink items! I also love the background of your blog! I can only imagine how much work those branches were to make and decorate.

Happy Pink Saturday

take care,

I got so excited when I saw the pink castle. This weekend we have spent time on line booking a vacation in December to Disney World. I have never been and we are going with my little grand-daughter. I can't wait to show her the pink castle. She loves pink. ~ Lynn

You have so many pretty pink things! I really love that painted tree idea. My daughter is hoping to get married in December, and I might borrow that idea. This could be awesome! How creative you are!

I enjoyed looking at all your pink treasures, and I think the pink cake plate is my fave...or maybe it's the dessert plates, or maybe the nightie...I like it all!
