Well, we made it through another week and have arrived at Pink Saturday...I am scrambling lately to come up with pink things. I have a house full of pink stuff but I struggle to find stuff people other than me would like to see. Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for hosting this weekly event and to find out the other participants, please click on the link in my sidebar and you will be taken to Beverly's site and the list for this week!

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!

Hi Linda! I love the sugar bowl and creamer set. I just started collecting creamers recently because I kept seeing them at Goodwill, then I would go home and think about them all night day I would go and pick them up. I can't believe how many rose patterned creamers there are out there. I'd love to collect the matching sugar bowls but you either find one without the other.

One day when you have time...I'd love to know about those dolls on your banner. They are so cute.

I love your pink post today! We never ever have weather that would warrant buying those cute boots but if we did I would want some just like them! Happy Pink Saturday!

Loretta said...

Linda, that is just toooo funny that you also have boots! I took my photo last year. I'd love to have a pair. I keep looking for a set I'd like. I love your very old cream and sugar set; I've never seen HM Queen Mary on anything! Wow...priceless. Happy pink day! (what do Peeps taste like?)

Hey Linda; Happy Pink Saturday. Thank you for stopping by for a visit, and the nice comment. I loved all of your pretty Pink's most of all the china set, just beautiful.

YOU HAVE MY CHATTY CATHY DOLL! haha, just kidding, although Chatty Cathy was mine when I was little. Being a Cathy myself, we were inseperable! Wonderful pink pictures you have there! Happy Pink!
Cathy, not the doll, but sometimes chatty

See, there is plenty of pink out in the world but I think most of the time our minds are so busy, we forget to notice. I love the boots and the unbrella too, great thinking. If you don't use them this year, they will be waiting for you. WA gets plenty of rain all year long, Happy Pink Saturday and thankyou for your post, it was wonderful, Char

Those boots almost look like they are made out of china! I love them. We used to have a Pier one around here, but they moved away.
