PINK SATURDAY!

You can kind of tell it has been a busy week as I see I haven't posted once since the last Pink Saturday! Once again thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting this event each Saturday. A link can be found on my sidebar!


This is a sweet little tea cup. It is actually quite tiny. Maybe a demitasse cup size. About 25 years ago we lived next to a couple who had been through the Holocaust and survived. They kept to themselves in their tiny run down rental home and most of the neighborhood kind of ignored them. My kids were quite young at the time and the lady took a great liking to my oldest son. He would often disappear and of course we would find him at their house...drinking hot milk which he never drank at home from this cup with the pretty pink rose on it. Eventually we moved to where we are now but before we left the lady gave my son his tea cup as a memory.


This little china cow might not look like much in pictures but she has a prominent spot in my china cupboard as she is one of the only things I have left from my deceased Grandma. I have no idea where she got it from, probably a five and dime store somewhere. It has pink ears and a pink tuft of fur on it's head and also, although white, there is a pink shine to it. and the neatest part is the eyes...they are pink rhinestones that glisten!
The grand kids and I went to the mall yesterday for an outing and happened upon this cutie in the Disney store there. Minnie has pink bunny slippers, a pink dress and even pink bunny ears as well as her traditional mouse ears. My granddaughter just had to bring her home!



I am going to end my post this week with a picture from my front flower bed...they weathered the snow, the frost, the rain and the hail, as you can see by their poor damaged leaves, but my bright pink primrose flowers have survived!! It is a welcome breathe of spring time! I hope the weather soon feels like spring too! Happy Pink Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

What a great post! I have that same pattern in a tradional teacup and also a children's set. It's one of my favorites! The little cow is adorable! My great grandmother had a figurine or two with the same look, though I'd have to ask my mom what they were. I just remember they sat in the china cabinet. Have a happy Pink Saturday and thanks for stopping by my page!

Deanna said...

I'm all teary eyed. What a sweet story and I do hope that the teacup and saucer will be passed down to your son so he can always have that memory of that heroic couple.

I wasn't sure what a primrose was. Now I know! I know the little cow is precious if it was your grandmother's. She is cute. And the tea cup is also so special. So special that you had the opportunity to bless the lives of these dear people by sharing your son. Love your post.
