Happy Pink Saturday 11/1

It's that time again where we all get to proudly parade our pink. Pink Saturday is graciously hosted by Beverly over at "How Sweet The Sound". Be sure to pay her a visit and see who else is sharing pink today.

It's been a hectic few days and I haven't had much time for anything. I'm posting something I shared a while back. Hope you don't mind.

This is my Princess House China made by Hammersly-Spode. These are just some of the pieces. I've been rebuilding the set that once belonged to my mother. Over the years and after various earthquakes, the set dwindled (broken and damaged pieces). Thankfully I still have one or two pieces of the original set. This pattern is called Windsor Rose and I love it! It's so ultra feminine and I feel the vintage table cloth is a perfectly imperfect match. Can you just picture yourself enjoying a cup of tea and as you sip, that pinky finger points straight up and out. LOL!

Thanks for spending some of your Saturday with me. I hope your day is great!

Happy Pink Saturday, Rechelle.

Good for you for rebuilding the set. And yes, I can picture myself sharing tea with you. It would be wonderful.

It is so delicate. What beautiful tiny roses. Happy Pink Saturday to you.

Mrs. Miles said...

Ohhh, your dish set would be a compliment to any table! Its lovely that pink is back in.

May I ask, do you USE your pretty dishes regularly, or do they stay locked away?

My mother in law gave me a gorgeous set of dishes with pink roses on, they were supposed to be left in her will for us, but she liked the idea she could see us enjoy them. So though I don't use them every day, I DO bring them out often!

Thank you so much for sharing.
