BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND is once more hosting
Many thanks, Bev, for a fun, weekly event.

I am about to run out of PINKS....
but, every time I look around, I spy another little bit of PINKFULNESS.

This cutest little PINK plate that looks a tad bit brownish in this photo
is one of my favorites because BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER gave it to me.
I love HER and I love Chocolate !!
Sorry if I have used any of these before in the postings...
Awh...just look at 'em AGAIN !!

Have I shared these PINK rosebuds before?
I got a pair of these at a thrift store and gave one to
and I kept one.

I love this handpainted, English plate

PINK, PINK.....every where !!

"Heart of my heart,
I love that melody......"

an old, old song from my childhood

An old, OLD, pitcher that belonged to my favorite Aunt Lillian ..
i sure would rather have my AUNT LILLIAN than this ole pitcher !!

I WISH all this fabulous PINKNESS belonged to ME, but, alas,
it all belongs to

this is a photo off one of their pretty calendars.


I hope your weekend is so full of BRIGHT PINK, you will have to wear shades all weekend long!
love ya,
oh, i do love this song playing !

I think I need to snag some of those calendars! They always catch my attention every time you show a glimpse of one.

Have a Fabulous weekend!

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ.

It is fun to see pink, isn't it? I have been keeping my eyes open for it, too.

You know even if you do share a picture more than once, I probably wouldn't remember. I do good to remember what I walk from one room to another to get. ;-)

I love all of your pink today - especially Aunt Lillian's pitcher.

Amelia said...

Good morning,

Loved the Aunt Lillian dainty and fragile looking.

Enjoy the pinks in your life today.


Becky said...

I LOVE all of your pink-ness. Esp. the one about chocolate...perfect!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Adrienne said...

Hi BJ -
You have such gorgeous dishes and china with pinks. Aunt Lillian's pitcher is a treasure. I have the same little creamy white heart-shaped wall pocket with the lock. I found it at a garage sale for twenty-five cents! I haven't hung it yet. Life has been too busy to find the perfect spot but it's lying in a place I can't miss it so I'll do it soon. Thanks for sharing such pretty things.

Smilingsal said...

bj, Happy Pink morning! You've got some pretty things on display here; I especially like that handpainted dish.

Shelia said...

Morning, BJ! I'm just loving all of your pinkness this morning! Oh, thanks for telling me I messed up on my Divas! I went right away and fixed it!!
Be a Pink sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Jeanne said...

Good morning my dear BJ. For running low on pink you did very well. At least it's not like me running all over the place looking for pink. The hunt is fun though. One thing is for sure, showing a pink item more than once is a good thing. No one remembers everything they see. Well, maybe Beverly's brilliant mind would. I am not kidding. smile.

Think pink! love, Jeanne

Have a fun pink weekend.

Cori G. said...

Me again. When I commented on pink saturday I forgot to close your blog page and your music kept playing. Then I heard the song by Johnny Cash, Ragged old Flag. Every time I hear that song it brings tears to my eyes. Good tears. Thanks!

Beverly said...

I just love your dishes! Happy pink Saturday to you!!

Suzy said...

Your PINK stuff are just adorable. The roses are cute and the pink plate, precious!

Ya gotta love a pink plate that speaks the truth about chocolate! Have a wonderful Sunday!

Tricia said...

Aunt Lillian must have been so special. Happy Pink Saturday. Didn't you just love little sister giving baby Palin the spit shine during the speech?

onlymehere said...

These plates and pitcher are so beautiful! I love the plate with the quote about chocolate too!

onlymehere said...

I almost forgot, I saw your comment about the dresser that you painted black, excellent idea! I've had this dresser since I was a young girl (about 35 years) and never had a broken drawer or anything, even with my girls using it now for years. Today while the boys carried it out of the house a drawer fell out and broke. We kept dropping the price and asked $3.00 and couldn't sell the darn thing! It was donated to our church's thrift shop after and they'll fix the drawer and sell it. Oh well, that's life.

Angie said...

What beautiful things you have! I love everything!


Margie said...

I love all your *pink* things today! All are quite lovely and cheerful! I know what you mean when you say you'd rather have your Aunt Lillian than her pitcher!

Vanessa Greenway said...

Wow! That English plate is so pretty! Have a great day! Vanessa
