Hello All....This is our day to show each other our delicious PINKs, so be sure and go to Beverly's to find all the blogs to visit for this Saturday! Isn't she a sweetheart to hostess this for us? Thank You! Beverly.....

I have been doing a lot of this and that and when I look back over the week I don't think I accomplished much! lol! I didn't do any creating as I have been kind of "brain dead" in that department. Do you ever get that way? Or maybe it is just a touch of Spring Fever. Once in a while it hits and I have found the best way to deal with it is not to force anything and just roll with it....inspiration will come back in its own time!
I did do a little treasure hunting and found these two pretty plates...


They will probably wind up in tiered dessert servers....

And this little beauty I found somewhere on our way back home, last year, from Texas and California. I love this plate as the glaze is very different. It is a satin and it makes the roses and designs on the plate very soft and so pretty.

And here is a preview of what is to come....this is one of many buds on my climbing rose bush, Eden. The bush is just covered and I will be so happy to look out one day and find one has opened up.....this is a beautiful English rose and one of the most beautiful of all the roses!

A hanging basket I planted with bright blue Lobelia and pink and white Fuchsias. They have not been growing very fast or as well as they should with all of our cloudy and chilly weather! This has been such a different spring!

These are my pinks for this week so I am going to wish you all a wonderful and happy PINK SATURDAY and go and visit each of you!
Bye For Now,
Jil

Your plates are fabulous and will make beautiful tiered servers! I too have those "brain dead" days where I feel like I've accomplished nothing. Especially those thankless chore days! Hope you have a wonderful Pink weekend!!

Can you ever have enough pretty plates? I think not. I can't wait to see your climber. With the crazy weather we've had here, it's a wonder anything is growing. Slow but sure.

Beautiful plates Jil.
Your garden is coming along and looks so lovely. The heat is here and so my blooms will get fried.
I sent you an email this morning. I hope you have a wonderful Happy Pink Saturday, Char

I can totally identify with the "creative brain dead" feeling you're going through. I've been like that for months....still waiting for the juices to kick back in!! :)

I enjoyed your PINK shares...and certainly hope you have a great Pink Saturday!! dana

Your plates are so beautiful and elegant.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving the sweet comment. We do seem to be suffering from the same malady, don't we? I think our long string of very hot, humid days here in Alabama has a lot to do with my lethargy. We finally got a wonderful rain this afternoon, the temps dropped and I already feel so much better. Hope you do too!

Gorgeous - that's what that server is going to be. I'm beyond Spring Fever...more like Spring Heatstroke...it's sooo hot here coupled with a drought so your pretty pink plants are soothing to look at! Happy Pink Saturday. xoxo Nancy

Hi Jil!
Thank you for your visit anc comforting words for my precious boy-I sure do miss him every second!
I'm sorry about your Bassie too! My sis in law had one and they are such sweeties!
Wish I had my baby shoes too - mine were "bronzed" and made into bookends as was popular in "those" days but dont know what ever happened to them. Will have to ask Mom!
Enjoy a wonderful new week!
Hugs and Smiles,
Lynn
