THINKING PINK!



Hello Pinkies! Another Pink Saturday is before us. I just have to show you what I won. This beautiful plate was made by Denise at http://vintagechicbride.blogspot.com/. She is so talented and I was lucky enough to win her give away! If you get a chance, stop by and visit, you will not be disappointed.



I know we have all started to get super busy. Thanksgiving is upon us and Christmas is just around the corner. Even though I love decorating the house for Christmas, Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. My home is filled with family and friends and I have so much to be thankful for. Did I ever tell you I collect Turkey Platters! Well, you guessed it, I do. So, I am starting Pink Saturday with a favorite Turkey Platter. I love the colors of fall. It is so much fun putting out all the Thanksgiving things. I think that is why I change everything around my house each month (other than being neurotic), I love so many different colors. So, every month I get to decorate with my favorite color of the month.







Where is the pink you ask? I am getting to it. Here are some of the things I have added to my craft room. It is all pink, of course.




I am also including a picture (the blue stuff) of recent thrift store finds. I did remember I was going to show them to you. I am so grateful, God loves this crazy woman! Hope you are all well and have a "Pink Time"! Blessings, Martha

You're so funny Martha! I love your pinks, they're beautiful, and so are the blue delicacies you share with us too.
If I can stop rushing around and take some photos of my teacups, I will join you and Terri for a few Teacup Tuesdays. I just have so much fun visiting everyone online. hehehe

Love your pink plates, especially the one with the pink glass basket in the picture. Looks like you won a beautiful gift too.

I know what you mean about color. Always nice to have so many colors, but I figured if God didn't want us to enjoy them all, he wouldn't have created so many. Looks like you have all your arrangements done nicely around her house so it's not too much.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Martha- Where do you find all these beautiful things? I would like to know how long you have been collecting and what got you started in the first place. I think you must have started when you were 2 years old to have all of this! LOL

A Hopeful Heart said...

Martha, you have so many gorgeous things!!! I positively drool over your collections!!

Alot of my pretties are packed away in boxes. We formerly had a built-in china cabinet, so when we left that house, we lost the china cabinet, which means, no place for me to put all my pretties. One day, though, I will have another china cabinet.

I hope you have a wonderful day.

Love,
Patti

Beautiful pinks, Martha! That plate you won is just lovely, but my favorite thing here today is that turkey platter. I don't know why, but this year I'm obsessed with turkeys!
Happy Pink Saturday!
