It's Pink Saturday and I Want to Show Off A Few Tea Items

http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ Welcome to Pink Saturday! Please follow the link back to Beverly so you can check out her post and also the list of participates. This group has been growing and we all need to be grateful for Beverly because she takes the time out of her busy life to provide us with some fun and friendship each weekend.  Although I get frustrated that I can not seem to make it to every single post to say hello I think warm thoughts of each one of you, because I know you are all individual talents and I enjoy knowing you. 

I am showing off a few pieces of my Vintage Garden collection. Princess house is planning to retire this collection and it makes me very sad. The four mini salt and pepper shakers are already retired. But they are lovely aren't they? The match the rest of the set and here are a few more.
This is a tea cup and saucer. I am sorry the lighting and my camera are not giving the detail and the beauty of this piece. These tea cups with matching saucers are  also retired in Princess House and I love these tea cups. They are very pretty and delicate. I am going to show you a different angle of the picture.

This is a better close up. My Fuchsia nails match the Pink Saturday theme too! Laugh out Loud! : O ).

The large teapot. It is a beauty made of stoneware and it cleans up like a dream! It is currently still available in Princess House. Do you love the pink cabbage rose on the top of the lid?

I was going to do a post about my Easter treasures but so many of them are still at the storage shed due to the snowy weather we have had. So instead I pulled my "Living Water" figurine from the former Home Interior Co. out of my china hutch. Easter really is about the sacrifice Christ made for all of us as He hung on the cross to take away the sins of the whole world. This figurine depicts Christ talking with the woman at the well.Read John 4:7-9. Jesus approached the woman at the well and asked her for a drink of water, Being a Samaritan and Jesus being a Jew she remarked about this. He replied to her "If you knew the gift of God, and who it is  that says to you ' Give me a drink', you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water." Now I am not going to give the while story to you. Grab your bibles and read it, it is a perfect time of year to read this story as it leads up to the death and resurrection of Christ.

I know I have not displayed classic pinks and I wanted to show you a couple decorating ideas I have using my retired Princess House 390 Candle Lamp. I have looked high and low and I can not find a solid pink large pillar candle. I improvised. I took an 8' candle stick and set in inside my lead crystal PH candle holder. I set them both in my candle lamp. Then I filled it with plastic Easter eggs. You can also use jelly beans. It is a quick and easy decorating idea and makes a nice centerpiece for the table.

I added a Dollar Store white lamb and little brown bunny holding some Easter eggs. This currently resides on my piano. I am planning to make some decoupage eggs and I have a great baby gift idea for you next Pink Saturday using the Princess house 401 chip n dip bowl. It will be pink for a girl! Smile!  :)

Hey Anne,
I really enjoyed your blog. It's so nice to meet you....Karen (KJ) is a very sweet lady!
That's funny that you mentioned your nail polish in your posting! HA! I was going to make a comment saying "pretty finger nail!"
I have never seen that figurine before, very inspiring. And yes, it does lead up to Easter perfectly!

I thought your little salt and pepper shakers were so cute and of course...never seen those before either. And of course I love your teacup and teapot!! CUTE, cute.
Have a great weekend...and
BE BLESSED!
Joyce

Hi, enjoyed your pink items. Pink makes me happy. I liked your salt and pepper shakers too.

And I agree totally with you - I feel for Sandra Bullock. He had it all didn't he?
