A warm welcome to Pink Saturday! Please visit Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... for the list of this weeks marvelous pink blogs to visit for our day to honor the beautiful color PINK.

I have been so remiss in not sharing a blog each week that I had not visited before. I guess I had brain freeze, as I simply forgot, so here is mine, finally, for this week. Run over and meet Jany of Look In The Nook Her blog is simply gorgeous with all the warm rich velvet. It just warms you to be there! She is an artist and over to the right is a link to her Fine sure and visit to see her work. I am going to be following this blog....she has so much to offer and I know you will love it, too!

I found this sweet pot bellied pink teapot at one of my favorite places to shop, TJ Maxx. I originally thought I would sell it with a tea cozy, but it is such a pretty shade of pink and looks so sweet sitting in the kitchen, that I decided I can't part with it....atleast for now....

The dried roses are from my Mothers Day bouquet....they were the loveliest shade of salmon-y pink....pale and delicate. I had never seen roses that color before and I have been searching catalogs to find one for my rose garden. They had a lovely fragrance to them, too. I was surprised that when dried, they are a dark red.... The beautiful little girl in the picture, (click on it to enlarge) is our precious and so dear to my heart Alexandra or Allie Rae as we call her....she is almost 15 years old now and even more precious!! She is one of our darling granddaughters..

Below, a favorite little shelf of mine with a pair of eye glasses from one of my grandfathers offices. Both grandfathers were doctors, but this one was an eye, ear and nose specialist, as they referred to them waaaaay back then. I simply adore those old glasses! They were a sample. How styles have changed.. ;-)

Enjoy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful week....
Happy Smiles and a Cozy Hug...

Hi Jil,

From one TJ Maxx/Homegoods addict to another, Happy Pink Saturday.

My entire house is pink. Every room, even the kitchen. I just love the fact TJ's sells pink kitchen items. I have spatulas, measuring cups & spoons, and a colander all in pink!

Love the teapot. Have a wonderful pink Saturday.

Hi Jil, Happy Pink Saturday, my favorite on your post is the shelf with the glasses. It got my heart. But it is amazing what you can find at places like T.J. Max. as the tea pot looks "old". Hugs, Mollye
