"Pink Saturday" is hosted by the lovely Beverly at How Sweet the Sound blog.
Each week ladies such as myself are encouraged to share some of their favorite pink pics. It can be anything: pink, flowers, pink clothing, pink nic nacs, pink linens, pink lace, etc. You get the idea!
If it's pink, you can post it!

Although many of you have already seen my "PINK FAIRY COTTAGE", I thought there may be many who have not. So I am going to repost my pics.
I hope you enjoy the Magical experience of my English Cottage garden.

Cleaning and prepping for the big REDO.

Three coats of paint in two days and it's ready to decorate.

A vintage Fairy Gnome my mother made 40 years ago watches over the
"magical makeover".

A pretty view in Spring before the redo began.

Bone china adorning the old china cabinet inside.

Oh so pretty, all pink and decorated.

A "Pink Teacup Birdbath" for the birdies.

I've seen your pink fairy cottage before and never get tired of looking at it. It is absolutely magical and it reminds me of all my girlhood fantasies. I would have loved a little playhouse like that where I could retreat and read and dream! Happy Pink Saturday! (I bet your family loves it!!!)
