I'm off antiquing, but before I go here are some wonderful pink pretties for you to enjoy this week.


"Pink Saturday" is hosted by the lovely
Beverly at How Sweet the Sound
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!

& Make Mine Pink celebrate


Delights and pleasures that make your heart beat a little faster await you along the garden path. Sights and sounds and smells that excite your senses and inspire your imagination. Perhaps it's the purple cone flowers, multicolored morning glories, fragrant angel trumpets, or the lordly foxglove, all grown from seed and tended with love, that line the path and remind you to dream. Or the delicate shadow of a Victoria trellis supporting a new vine that takes you on a new flight of fancy. In the early morning hours, or when the sun begins to set, a verdigris candle holder or metal scroll work lantern might illuminate the garden pathway. But it's the vintage metal buckets painted with floral designs and planted with overflowing flowers, that seem to light the way.

The garden scenery is reflected in a beautiful handmade cushion, stitched from fabric alive with pink blossoms, then placed on a nearby garden chair. A decorative vintage birdcage hangs from a weather hook. On the table lies a gardening book filled with inspiration and ideas to share. Later, you'll remember absent friends and lovingly write to them on note cards reminiscent of a favorite rose garden. But for right now, you'll celebrate with those who are here, and share the treasures you've found along the garden path.

It's been raining here for the past day so I've decided to get going an fill up my shops with new treasures. Both "Treasured Heirlooms" and "Elegance and Whimsy" are filled to the brim with new vintage china, linens, rose adorned antiques, candy dishes, pretty vases, garden goodies and lots more. I thought I would post a few treasures before I headed down to my "Glitz and Glam" station and get back to work.
