~Pretty Pink Saturday~

What a better way to end the working week with Pink Saturday.  We have had a glorious week of sunshine and wonderful warm weather but it had to end.  Woke this morning to rain on the tin roof, which I have to admit is my favourite long as I don't have to go out in it.
I included a selection of different pinks from around my home.
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful week to come.

This little set was given to my mum when she was 16 by a boy...she is now 85.

Another of my sweet pink beaded bags.

This is that silver vase I purchased a few weeks ago after its makeover.

~Happy Pink Saturday~

~Easter Pink Saturday~

This is my fav day of the week and as usual I am linking with the gorgeous Beverly @HowSweetTheSound.
This was a tough one today as we are in our Autumn so not much in the way of flowers (just cut the rose bushes back), and I don't decorate for Easter....but I did have a little bunny left over from an easter project from about 15 years here he is in all his cuteness photographed around my home.
Happy Easter & Pink Saturday.

Not sure what the card says..but really hoping its Happy Easter.

~Totally Pink Finds~

My day has started horrible.  My favourite cat has gone missing since last night so I walked the neighbourhood this morning looking for her and dropping flyers in letterbox's to see if anyone has seen her.  She is an extremely friendly cat who greets anyone who walks down our street and that may be the problem in that someone has taking a liking to her and picked her up.  I have even asked the neighbourhood kids to keep an eye out for her. 
So I needed to get out for a while , so I decided to visit my local charity shops and here are my lucky Pink finds...

A Pink almost complete dinnerset....not the prettiest I have ever seen but pink nonetheless and great for everyday use. Sorry for the piccy' camera is making everything look orange.

Now these are adorable...pretty Pink Polka Dot curtains with matching tiebacks for $4.00.  These are going in my guest bedroom which I am still in the process of doing up.

A pretty vintage hankerchief with a little Pink grub rose.

A vintage Avon bottle with Pink lid (in need of a clean I think)

Although not pink these are my bargain of the day...two matching vintage carver chairs for $5.00 each.  Perfect for a shabby makeover I think.

Last but not least a couple of punnets of pink pansies to brighten up the entrance.
I think I did pretty well.  I would rather have my cat home but at least it made me forget for a little while.

~North Carolina Tornado's~

I just wanted to say how sorry I am for those in North Carolina who have been devasted by the recent Tornado's .  I have just seen it on our news (in Australia) and I cant even begin to imagine what one of these things are like when they hit but to have the huge amount you have had in a recent storm...must be terrifying to say the least.  There was a woman who couldn't find her cats (that was my breakdown point).  All those poor animals who are lost or worse. 
Anyway  just wanted to let you know that we are thinking of you.

~Its Here!....Pink Saturday~

I couldn't decide what to show for Pink Saturday after much deliberation....I chose my Cherub.  Althoough he doesnt have much in the way of Pink until I added a velvet rose, I do adore him.  I bought him about 10 years ago and he has sat on a shelf in my bedroom ever since (up high I might add for fear of him getting knocked off)  I love the colour of his wings they are sort of a verdigris green with gold highlights.  He is exactly how I imagine a cherub would look with chubby little fists and cute little toes.
Hope you enjoy,

~Happy Pink Saturday~
