Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday !!

I have been surrounded by lovely china the last few weeks. I just love to pick up a piece from a shelf, or table and just lose myself in its beauty. I have been having a blast pairing up my cupcake plates, with their new life partners :) ( see post below )

Thought you might like to see a few of Mine :)I think I have shown you these before from my Kitchen, I just truly love them :)We store fruit in them. :) I was really lucky to find these two bowls. They came in a lot of China from eBay. There were plates and butter pats and these were not even visible in the poor picture they showed, so imagine my JOY when I opened the box ! :) The lead crystal bases I had bought to make a few cake plates, but loved them together with my treasure trove of Surprise plates :)
These are Large serving bowls too. If you were a Bird, would this be your bath ?? lol !! It would be mine !! :)


I created these collages this week with more pretty china for my shop. I am a China-Holic I think, although I don't want a cure as long as I can find ways to keep re-purposing it :) Do you like ?
Now the hard part will be letting go.................

But if I don't let go, I will have NO excuse to buy more ! :) Now how is that for good logic ? :)

My Pink Saturday Buddy this week is Laurie, from Laurie's Charming Designs. Better known as the OhmygoshthatisthecutestbirdiepincushionIhaveeverseenlady ! :) lol !!

Please go say hi to our Ever Sweet Hostess, Miss Beverly. She has exciting news this week :) Happy Pink Saturday !!

Hugs,

Rhea

I guess I may have to get busy and do some "pairing" around here. I do have pink around that is for certain.

You have done a wonderful job of it...such pretty things.
