PINKNESS.......

NO wonder everyone loves the color PINK....
♥♥♥♥♥

I took these photos of our sky over SWEET NOTHINGS cottage right after a severe wind and rain hit us LAST NIGHT..was it ole EARL that sent it??
ANYway...we ended up with
BEAUTIFUL PINK FLUFFY CLOUDS...just like cotton candy.....
*
A PINKNESS breakfast...just for me..
*
MR. SWEET had an early morning GOLF game..
so I fixed myself a
PINK GIRLY BREAKFAST...
*
A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS....
*
OMGOSH...these luscious PINK DONUTS, fresh from
the bakery, were just MELT IN YOUR MOUTH good...
and...*shhhhh....I ate BOTH of 'em....
*

...a precious JOY cup from BIG LOTS...
and in PINK....'ya gotta just love it...
♪♫♫I've got JOY JOY JOY JOY, down in my heart.... down in my heart to stay.."♪♪♫
*

Little PAPER pink roses....
.♪♪♫ PAPER ROSES.....PAPER ROSES...♪♪♪
Now, this delightful PALE PINK drink in the little vintage glass
is PINK LEMONADE with RASPBERRY....
**
I don't believe I have EVER drank PINK LEMONADE for breakfast,
but.....it was so PRETTY AND PINK and....
I'll do ANYthing for BEVERLY....:>)
And, let me add that IT WAS DELICIOUS...
Try it sometime..:O)
**
The softest, pinkest, GRANDGIRL snuggly warm throw...
in PINK and WHITE PLAID ...
isn't it so stinkin' cute...
I just stopped dead in my tracks when I saw this vision....
***
a little extra something for Christmas...
*
Now, if any of you GRANDGIRLS are reading this..
you don't have a CLUE WHICH one will get it...'cause we know you ALL love PINK !! ;-))
*
I bought a big bag of CLEMENTINES ...
and they are so juicy and sweet....
I just love the little tiny things...
*
It's so soft...I know you can almost FEEL it....
It is just as soft as it looks.....
*
*
..some good books to read this winter..when it's cold and snowy
outside....
and we start a fire in our FRANKLIN FIREPLACE...
*heavy sigh and " just can't wait " look on my face....
*
UM UM....GOOD !
*
Come on over...I saved one for YOU
*
Happiest Saturday to all....
**
I am playing with: PINK SATURDAY
*******
Thank you, sweet ladies, for hosting these fun days...

Beautiful sky images! We were at the beach late yesterday and Earl provided us with some great waves to shoot.Luckily we didn't get any of the bad stuff.
Your "sheet heads" had me rolling on the floor. Mr. VintageSouthern came in to ask if I was Okay!
Have a great week-end, Annette

JEANNE said...

Hi bj, This is the second PS post I have visited tonight. Mine is not done yet. I better get busy huh?

Your breakfast in pink is awesome. I want a pink donut so bad. HA! I have been dieting. sigh!!! Love the pink cup and the table looks so pretty in pink. Pink paper roses are the best touch.

You pink clouds are a sight to behold. Great photo op and great shots of a rare moment.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend.
Love, Jeanne

Hey sweet girl... happy long weekend!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

You're gonna have all of the Grands trying to be your favorite for that cuddly blanket (but I'm guessing that was your plan all along:@) Have a great weekend!

sissie said...

Hi BJ,
Ole Earl passed us over and we were glad not to meet him!

I love your pink cloud sky shot, so peaceful looking.
Your morning breakfast looks fit for a princess and I am wanting that pink donut so bad!

The little soft pink blankee is going to make one of your sweet girls very happy. My guess is that they will all get one. But, I won't tell.

hugs
Sissie

Sarah said...

BJ, I want to come have breakfast at your house. Pink donuts ~ yummy! Great post!
Have a delightful holiday weekend. ~ sarah

Bill said...

I have a question for you, Ms. BJ ... How on earth do you stay so svelte if you actually eat all those lovely sweet treats you keep showing us? I think I gained five pounds looking at the donuts (I don't care what color they are -- I think I saw Bill written on one, very faintly) .. and that almond cake with Italian ice in your tablescape post -- oh MY! You know how to capture a guy's heart, don't you?

Hope you and yours have a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
Bill

Tommie Jo said...

I'll have a bite of that pink donut, but what I really want is that pink and white throw. Your grand daughters don't really want it, do they?

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

So many wonderful pinks!
I adore the vintage juice glass and the pink donuts should almost be illegal they look so good!
Wonderful pics of the lovely color pink!
Happy Labor Day Weekend,

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

Oh Sweetie, I hope you finally got back to sleep!

But ohhhhhhhhhhh how *eeeeeevil* of you, to point me over to a PINK breakfast. !!!!!! Naughty, naughty, naughty! -giggggles-

Mmmmmm, do they make gluten free Pink Donuts? >,-)

Prettttty sky pics! We had a kind of weird-ish pink-ish sky just at sunset, last night. After total over-cast skies all day, from "Earl." Seems the last rays of sunlight often peek UNDER the edge of over-cast skies. And we get a very few minutes of c-o-l-o-r, just before the sun goes to bed for the night.

Happy Pink Saturday to one of the Sweetest Pink Ladies in Pretty Blog Land!!!

Theresa said...

I love the header, I am in love with the pinks! Those donuts look delicious and you have a way of just making the prettiest tables!

Enjoy your sweet day my friend! Big HUGS!

My Crafty Little Page said...

dana said...

Did you save me a donut, BJ? I LOVE em....especially those slathered in pink frosting!! I LOVED these cute post of yours!!! You Pink Joy mug is darling.....I must check out our Big Lots!! I also LOVE your banner and the "hissy fit" and "conniption fit".....my mom and her relatives from Arkansas used those terms....how you brought back sweet memories for me!!

I hope you have a wonderful Pink Sat and the best Labor Day Weekend!! L, Dana

Mary said...

You do know your pinks, bj. This was another lovely post and I enjoyed every frame of it. Have a fabulous weekend. Blessings...Mary

Anonymous said...

I came over to look at your blog again this morning...yesterday;s
intrigued me so much...and LOVE all of the PINK pretties you have on that sweet breakfast table!!
The little vintage glass is darling and the pink lemonade/juice looks yummy in it.......the PINK donuts are "2die4", (as my grandgirls would write it)and do you know I don't think
I have ever SEEN one before..??..I do not go in "sweet" shops because if I saw something as delicious-looking as those do-nuts, I'd probably buy a dozen and eat them all!!
I LOVE that pink/white plaid blanket
I have young grand-girls who would adore it, too!! Wonderful find!!
Your site is full of wonderful pinks!
I'll be back, that's for sure!
Have a safe, fun Labor Day weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday BJ Sweetie...
I love this pink post. Oh my gosh, what a beautiful share.

I love those pink doughnuts. They look delish. And pink lemonade? Boy have I been missing out. Love the little juice glass. So petite and just right for this pink table.

Oh the grand daughters are going to be bribing you to get that soft pink blankie. What a precious plaid for a cool evening that we just know is coming, right??

Another beautiful table BJ and such a wonderful breakfast. Sometimes it is so nice to sit and enjoy all of God's beauty before all the NOISE wakes up. I could even hear your birds singing outside.

Thank you for sharing breakfast with me. As always you are the hostess with the mostess sweetie.

Hope you have a beautiful Saturday. Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

Carol said...

BJ, I would have to say that this is one of the best pink posts I have ever seen! Love it, and I don't have a lot of pink around, never was that much into pink, but I have learned to love it over the past few years.
Those donuts and breakfast are stunning! And the blanket, and the clouds are the best of all!

Sares said...

You just HAD to go and show me those donuts, didn't you! I hope the grands don't fight over that soft pretty blanket. You could have a battle on your hands come Christmas! Happy Pink Saturday BJ and have a super weekend!

BJ you take the most gorgeous photo's... I need to study them and learn from you! I got away from pink a few years ago but the more I see of your posts the more I realize how much I love pink. It still goes with red if it's the right shade...right?! Thanks for the inspiration. Maura :)
