Hail Hail Pink Saturday...

Once again it's time to come together and indulge ourselves in Pink. Lavish and bathe ourselves in Pink. Inhale & exhale in Pink. Immerse and enjoy ourselves (you got it) in Pink.
Beverly, of How Sweet the Sound, is, as always, our ever gracious host. Be sure to pay her a visit and check out all our lovely Pink Ladies.

Ripe, sweet, California grapes...straight from the vine...seriously. All nestled in my pink malemine bowl. Have one!

This little Rose pitcher I found at one of the local thrift stores. It was to sweet to pass by. I've shared it before, but I thought I'd share it for Pink Saturday. It fits well.
This sweet little mouse is proudly wearing a pink party hat. It's a bit hard to tell but the flowers are pink and blue. This beauty sat atop all my children's birthday cakes as they celebrated their first birthdays and while I know this will be hard to believe, this candle is the candle I lit for my now 23 year old daughter on her first birthday and each child thereafter has celebrated their first birthday with the lighting of this candle. It's extra special to us since it was my mother who found and bought this little ceramic candle holder. Thanks mom.
I always rack my brain trying to think of where oh where I may have some pink in this house...Ta Daa! My pink wine glasses! I love looking at this book. It's got pictures of some great "Painted Ladies" located all across the nation. A side note. See that beauty on the front? While I know she is not pink herself, she is truly special. She has been completely refurbished from top to bottom, after much research it was concluded that this was her original color AND she is located but 20mins from me. I have been inside and it is gorgeous and a bit surreal to walk through the front doors and feel as if you've traveled back through time. This is the Hail House and it was moved to it's permanent location in Heritage Park...an outside museum with other Victorian homes & structures that have been saved and are being or have been restored. I love it there.

A Pretty, Pink, Painted Lady...
Thank you for dropping by and spending a bit of your day with me. I do appreciate you and the time you take to say "hi" and leave me a comment. May your day be great and filled with pink

The Pink Ladies pledge...THINK PINK!

Happy Pink Saturday, Rechelle. Thank you for sharing your pink with us today.

I have a pink bowl that I love, too. That candle just goes to prove that they are quick at making their wish. I think it is a wonderful thing you have shared with your children.

And, you have to love those Pink Ladies.

I think I might have the same pink bowl. :) The candle is so sweet. What a treasure to share with your family.

I love the pink wine glasses. I've never seen any like that.

I'll bet that house was wonderful inside.

Those grapes look super delish!
I love how the roses on your tablecloth look like they're really in the pitcher... did you do that on purpose?! Ha, I see someone else agrees~
Great story about the cute candle.
I love that book, but I don't have it. Wish I could tour that house too, lucky you!
