Happy Pink Saturday!!!




Welcome to another Pink Saturday!! A special thanks to Beverly from "How Sweet the Sound" for hosting this event each week. In my first picture you see a 5 piece place setting of handpainted china. I purchased this beautiful china from Debbi at "Marionberry Cottage". It was handpainted by Irene Marshall of California in 1993. Mrs. Marshall is 95 years old and still painting! Handpainted china is a real weakness of mine.

In the second picture is a pretty rose hanger that I purchased from Adrianna's Boutique on e-bay. I have it hanging in my bedroom. I didn't hang any clothes on it because it is too pretty to cover up. It has the ribbon roses on it which I really love.

The third picture is a vintage card. Who could resist this cute little lady with her pink bonnet?

The last picture is one of my favorite pillows. I purchased it from Char at "Someplace in Thyme". I love the pretty bride, and she is surrounded in lace. Char does beautiful work on her pillows, faux pastries and many other items that she creates.

Thank you for paying me a visit. God bless you all. Vicki

Oh Vicki! Happy Pink Saturday. I love everything, but that pillow is so elegant. Char did do a beautiful job on it. The woman on the pillow just talks to you doesn't she? She is so beautiful. Thanks for sharing. Please stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

Hi Vicki, thank you for your visit to the castle. I am busy getting ready for company and time got away from me on visiting my blogging friends. Your hand painted dishes are so beautiful. I dearly love them. And to think the artist is still alive and you know who she is...awesome. Your pretty hanger should not be covered, I agree.
I love the little girl in the bonnet and the bride pillow is divine. Your are definitely a Pinkie. Smiling! Have a wonderful day.

Hugs...Jeanne

The handpainted china is amazing!!!

We left Ft Hood when I was young and moved to Germany. I've been back to TX but not to Ft Hood. I would like to go back and see what it's like.

Happy Pink Saturday Vicki!! Hugs

Claudia said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Vicki! I am in love with that handpainted china - oh my gosh, it is gorgeous! I see why it is your weakness! It could easily become my weakness!

Judith Tetley said...

Hi Vikki, your blog is delightful...soooo pretty. I love the idea of a Pink Saturday...no better way to spend the day. I am a china painter, however, have not painted for several years now due to being constantly commissioned for textile design work. I remember how much I enjoyed painting roses...your display has me "itching" to get my brushes out...lol.
Kind Regards
Judith
