A FEW OF MY PINK THINGS!


Hello Pinkies! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend so far! I am so excited to be a featured blog on Beverly's Pink Saturday. I feel like one of those fancy blogs (at least for today). I am smiling from ear to ear! I thought what I would do, is share a little bit of what I collect. My followers know I collect a little bit of everything. In this post you will see a "few of my favorite things."




One of my passions are tea cups and teapots. This first picture is of a Aynsley set. I call it the wedding set, because I purchased it for a Bridal Tea I had for my daughter. I wanted her tea set to be new, because she was started at new life. I wanted it white and of course pink! I love this set. It has two tea cups one for her and one for her husband. I served Tea for about 50 ladies that day, it was a blast. Everyone else got vintage cups.






Another passion of mine are "ladies". I collect ladies on lamps, statues (large and small), ladies on plates and vanity boxes. These are a few examples.





I mentioned Vanity Boxes. I just love them. One of my favorites are boxes with roses. I love roses on anything, but on Vanity Boxes, they take my breathe away.




Roses are a passion of mine. I love them on anything as well. I love hand painted roses on plates on paintings and on china. My favorite china is Limoges. I have several sets of pink Limoges. A girl can never have enough Limoges is my rule.



I could go on, but then you will wonder why I do not seek therapy now! I am not a hoarder, just a Serial Collector on the edge! Blessings, Martha

Your truly have the most beautiful finds Miss Martha. I'm amazed at your lovely collection of romantic pretties.

My taste over the years has changed so very much so I didn't really start collecting anything until I was well into my 40's. Sure wish I'd paid more attention to what my gramma had when I was a girl...

Lovely again...

Blessings to you today.

Love, Rebecca

A "fancy" blog for today...but a beautiful blog always. I always LOVE popping by your blog and seeing all your pretties. What a beautiful idea for a bridal tea. And I love the symbolism of new and white. It is a beautiful tea set.

I love your lady collection. When I was growing up, I remember my mom having several ladies' heads, mostly little planters.

And that rose painting (the one with the plates around it) is beautiful!! I, too, love roses. They are always so gorgeous.

Well, I look forward to reading your little "bio" on Beverly's blog tomorrow....and hey, I don't think you need therapy. There is nothing wrong with collecting beautiful things, and it's not like there's so much stuff that there's no place to sit or walk.

Hugs,
Patti

Oh, love the pinks...I thought how you draped the pink jewelry over the pink teacups was really beautiful. It brought out the pink loveliness in the cups :) :) :) I'll have to try that sometime and see what happens!!! The rose print that you had on the wall is also gorgeous.!!! Oh, I love it all!!! Have a lovely weekend. Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :)
