Next I have some of our pink menagerie to show off...we have lots of pink stuffies around here!
And once my pink princess has her pink finery on, she often will take her pink unicorn for a ride wearing her pink cowboy hat!
Next I have some dainty china given to me by my Mom. She was married in 1945 and this was her first china. It is Colclough bone china from England. The company was founded in 1890. This pattern is blue with small pink roses all over it and has gold trim.
These pretty pink hyacinths mixed with grape hyacinths are located in a neighbors yard...so pretty and such a welcome sight after our long winter!
And finally the pink Cherry trees are blooming in our neighborhood!!
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY AND I HOPE EVERYONE HAS A HAPPY EASTER! Thanks for stopping by and I hope to visit your blogs this week and see all your pretty pinkness!
Also if you have a look at my sidebar, you will see a new childhood photo added. I was wearing a dress I wore when I was a flower girl in one of my cousins weddings. I have a gold bracelet on which was my gift from the bride for being in the wedding party. It was a busy year or so, I was a flower girl 3 times!

This photo was taken outside of our local school just up the street from us.
These grape hyacinths were growing wild in a lawn at a house a few doors down from the school. Dakotah really wanted to pick herself a bouquet but I talked her into leaving them there for others to enjoy as well.
The lady up at the corner had quite a few blooming beauties in her flower beds!
This stunning clump of daffodils was found on the corner of 23rd and Ninth Avenue...so very pretty!And then we walked home to our house...and yes...while I was snapping the photo, she finally succumbed and picked a flower...I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw her holding just the head of the flower...and I wonder where she put it...I haven't seen it since now that I think of it!I see a little hand in this shot too...the temptation was just too much for her, I guess! LOL
My daffodils are now in full bloom too! Yeah!!!

When my friend and I went to Tacoma a few weeks back, we stopped at Pier One Imports where I found this darling pink Polk -a -dotted umbrella for my granddaughter. She loves it. It also could go with the boots I bought myself following our awful snowfalls when I found my feet to be soaking wet constantly trudging through snow banks. Of course, as Murphy's Law suggests would happen, we haven't had enough accumulations since then for the boots but it is the rainy since here on the "wet" coast so I am prepared for whatever comes now in my spiffy boots with pink flowers all over them!This pretty cream and sugar set was given to me by my brother a few years back for Christmas. The pattern is called "Golden Emblem". On the bottom of the pieces it says "Paragon, by appointment to HM the Queen & HM Queen Mary" fine bone china, England. I think it is pretty old.
This very pretty and very pink and luminescent book and pen are my granddaughter souvenirs from our trip to Disneyland with her last June. It doesn't get much pinker than this book is in person! She has it filled with autographs and pictures of the Disney Princess's! I thought we had all the princess pictures and autographs but I was reading an article today that said Disney will be adding another Princess to their roster on Christmas Day this year. Her name is Princess Tiana and she will be starring in their upcoming animated movie titled "The Princess and the Frog"....hmmmm....I bet my granddaughter will feel the need to go back to Disneyland to get the autograph and picture of the newest princess!! Not that she really needs an excuse, she talks about and longs for Disneyland and California constantly. It was a big hit with her! She must take after her grandmother as that is one of my favorite places to go also!With Easter just being around the corner, I am going to end my Pink Saturday offerings this week with the pretty pink "Peeps" I found at a store yesterday! Usually I see them as yellow chicks so when I found these "pink" bunnies and the fact it was the only package of pink ones left, I just knew they were meant to come home with me! Princess Ariel, who is pretty in pink, is standing guard over them so I don't eat them all before the big day! Happy Pink Saturday everyone and thanks for stopping by my blog this week!
