Pink Saturday - Touches of Pink

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Take a Portion of your day to stop by her Place to see the many other Particularly Pretty Pink Pieces that Precious Participating Pink People are Pointing out.



I don't have much pink in my house, but I have found some touches. This is a dish that a friend gave me some years ago. I use it in the center of my white kitchen table. I love the soft blue and pink.

I went to a House of Lloyd's party years ago and bought this lovely lady. She's labeled "Garden Party Figurine." Her hat matches the pink flowers around the hem of her skirt and those in her hair. I keep the small mirror behind her so that her pink flowers in her hands can be seen.

I wanted some color for my all white bathroom, so I made this arrangement. The flowers are white with a delicate pink center. They look good in this blue container with swirls of purple, white, teal, and pink.


Happy Pink Saturday!

I hope to see you on Blue Monday.

Knitty said...

The mirror behind your Garden Party Figurine is perfect! I love your blue bowl too. The three circles remind me of Christmas peppermints done in pink, blue and white instead of Christmas colors.

Dawn said...

Very pretty Sally. I like the dish a lot! The touch of color is really lovely. The vase you used for the flowers is as cute as can be! It looks wonderful!

Happy Pink Saturday to you.

take care,
Dawn

Good morning Saly, the bowl is lovely, it shimmers. Your figurine is very elegant and the mirror was a good idea. Now your lovely flowers are arranged the way they should be done. In this case my phobia for balance is not a problem. I love that one branch is leaning out over the container. Good job.

Hugs...Jeanne

I'm giggling about your Friday post while reading this one. What a unique bowl. It just looks like it is made to be used in the center of a table.

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I think I like that vase at the top the best! You really do have a lot of gorgeous things with pink. I also love figurines, but don't have many at all!
