A Beautiful Fall Pink Saturday

Hello, again, Pink Saturday Peeps! I hope your week as been fabulous in every way! The weather is so perfect.... in the high 60's and 70's here, so each day it is a toss, do I work in the gardens getting them ready for what will be coming, we won't mention the "S" word..... or do I keep my nose to the grindstone working on my sewing, etc. Oh, yes, and keeping the house clean and hubby well fed! lol! :) You know I would not trade any of this for anything! I am happy the Lord has given me all He has and so when I feel over burdened, I try to slow down and just say "Thank You." Life is far from perfect, but I feel thankful for what I have been blessed with!

I thought I would share some fabric with pretty,pretty pinks....I have this out looking and thinking what I will do with it....What do you see made out of this? A pretty tea cozy perhaps?

And I just had to share this beautiful Chintz teapot and cup of tea.....I adore china in the chintz pattern and especially when it is in these heavenly colors....

And look at these dainty little sandwich rolls.....I am not an okra fan, but these look quite yummy and with the little ham sandwiches very enticing on the pretty chintz plate.

Happy Pink Saturday, sweet friends. Remember to dash on over to Beverly's for all the other Pinkalicious posts to enjoy!

Smiles and Hugs....
Jil

Oh, I adore the Chintz teapot and cup! The fabric is lovely, too, and would go so well in my shabby chic bedroom that I'm redecorating! I would make a pillow with it for my wicker chair! Lovely blog! I'm your newest follower!

Lovely fabric! I adore chintz dishes, so romantic and pretty and the little sandwiches would be perfect for a tea party!! Happy pink!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Here's something you may not have thought of for your pretty heart printed fabric....journal covers. I am making fabric covered journals now. Been experimenting all day on the best method. Granny panties....yep...they certainly are more comfortable than those tiny little things of yesteryear. Maybe it's because my stomach is no longer teenager flat but who says we can't have lace on the bigger ones. :) Happy Pink Saturday Jil and have a wonderful week.
