Pink Saturday - Rose's Teacup Chandelier

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presenting for your Pleasure.

We've been gone for the past three days. We've found a place to rent with a six-month lease, got a Tampa telephone number, and rented a warehouse (because the apartment won't hold all of my stuff.) Whew! Now, back to packing.

Rose and I have been friends for over forty years. I've shared pictures from her screened-in porch located in Florida here and here. Today I have a few more. Take a look at the tea cup chandelier hanging in the center of the porch. (You can peek to see Bob's chair in the right lower corner.)

Rose puts candles inside each teacup at night for a special glow.

This teacup holds some FAUX tea. It sure looks real, doesn't it?

Isn't this a fun place to sit and visit? I have some more to share from Rose's porch this Blue Monday.

Happy Pink Saturday!

WOW! That sure looks like real tea to me....very cute ideas there!

And you have been busy! But I'm sure now you feel better and more organized towards the move knowing what size place you will have and what to take or not take.

WOW, that was something else. I've never seen anything so amazing as that chandelier. Oh, almost forgot the preamble: Good morning, I'm stopping by to say hello, and Happy Pink Saturday. LOL

It's been stormy and rainy here in Southwest Florida. I hope your day is full of sunny skies, warm temps and plenty of Pink!

Glad you found a place to live. Would hate for you to have been out on the street. LOL
Love these pictures, especially the teacup chandelier. I'll bet it is really pretty lit. That tea certainly does look real.
Happy P.S.

Tootsie said...

OMG!!! I want one like that!! maybe I will just have to make my own!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

The chandelier is so pretty. Is the "tea" in the teacup a jell candle?

bj said...

So glad you found a place, Sally..I know that makes you feel better.
I love this beautiful tea cup chandy. Very pretty.
Don't work too hard...

I was just reading again the comment you left and I had to stop over and tell you how sorry I am about your sister's cancer. I will certainly add her to my pray list. I was also interested to learn about your bout with Ovarian Cancer, and thanking God that you are recovered and doing well*! I LOVE to hear that*! Hope you are having a great weekend*! _Ashley ~

Rose does have a lovely chandy. the tea cups are so pretty too. a fun pink offering today.


Tara said...

Cute teacups! You're right, that last one does look real. You could play some serious tricks on people with that. Happy Pink and have a loveleigh weekend!

If I were to re-write Alice in Wonderland, this would be her chandelier.

The Old Parsonage said...

What a great creative idea! Sounds like a fun place to visit!

Enjoy your Sunday!


Beverly said...

You are going to miss Rose. It's a pretty good drive from Fort Lauderdale to Tampa. But, special friends are always worth the extra effort.

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally.

Beansieleigh said...

I have NEVER seen a chandelier like THIS... And I'm glad I finally have! This is BEAUTIFUL!.. As for the tea? You could have fooled me! I'd have blown on it a bit to see if it needed cooling, and then tried to take a sip! (0; Happy Pink Saturday, Sally, and hope you have a wonderful week!
