Happy Pink Saturday!!!

I am excited to be able to participate in "Pink Saturday" for the first time. Thank you, Beverly, from "How Sweet the Sound" for hosting each week. I wanted to show you this sweet vintage tea and toast set. I purchased this set from Debbi at Marionberry Cottage on Etsy. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I love pink roses and handpainted china. On the back of each piece is the name of the lady who painted it: "Original-Designed Hand Painted (1945) by Irene M. Marshall of California." Debbi told me Mrs. Marshall is now 95 and still painting. Isn't that wonderful?
The second picture is the entrance to my home with a pink geranium hanging basket and my pink bunny wreath that I made. Please visit all the participants for "Pink Saturday" by going to:
Have a good weekend. Vicki

Good morning Vicki. Welcome to Pink Saturday. I love your hand painted cup and saucer. The wonderful thing is to know about the lady that painted it. She is a wonder at 95. Your wreath is very cute and looks great where you hung it too.

Have a happy Pinkie day.


Meg said...

Good Morning Vicki, Loved your blog. So many things so close to my heart. My son leaves for Iraq this week and I think sometimes people forget just how hard it is for families. Of course I do totally love your plate set and the fact that you know its history is awesome. Have a wonderful Pink Weekend!!!!!Meg

Your vintage plate is gorgeous, if you read Debbi's blog, I think she did a piece on the woman that paints all the china. Her garage was full of her work. Gorgeous. Thankyou for posting on my blog, I am following yours, don't want to miss anything, your home is delightful, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

Vicki, Happy first Pink Saturday! It is really fun to do each week. I find myself looking for Pink thinking... hmmm Pink Saturday Seed. That is really cool that the painter of your plate is still alive & painting & that you know who & where she is. Happy Pink!

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

Angelika said...

I'm with you all the way. There is nothing more lovely than eating and drinking from charming vintage china. Thank you for sharing!

Hi Vickie - Gorgeous china. It takes more than a Saturday to go through Pink Saturday blogs, doesn't it? What part of TX do you live in? I'm in Pflugerville by Austin and oh my gosh it's so darn hot and dry. We only got a tiny bit of rain last week and none forecast for this week. Pray for rain! xoxo Nancy

She'sSewPretty said...
