~Pink, Pink & More Pink~

~Welcome to Pink Saturday~

Thanks go to the Stunning Miss Beverley for being the hostess with the mostess, so pop on over here and visit all the other lovely pink blogs in blogger land.

I paid a visit to the local nursery yesterday and finally picked up my lilac., which is just a stick at the moment.  I wish I could wave a magic wand and it would be already grown and giving me its wonderous blooms to enjoy.  I never was big on patience. While there I spotted this gorgeous Camelia called 'Buttons & Bows'.  How cute is the name.   The symetrical detail to the flowers is amazing but best of all its pink.  Lastly I spotted a pink statice, which is just perfect for using as a filler in flower displays

My last pinks for this week are the flowers I bought myself....pretty pink Gerberas and Pink Lilies.  Every week when I do the grocery shopping I always buy myself some flowers, pink ones of course, to brighten up our home.

~Have a glorious weekend everyone and thankyou so much for stopping by.  your company is always welcome~
PS...If you need me I will be in the garden :)

~Bathroom Pinks~

Wow..its Pink Saturday time again...the weeks just seem to fly by.  Before we know it, it will be Christmas again.  My Pinks today are from my main bathroom...hope you enjoy.  
Thankyou to Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for making each and every Saturday a celebration of Pink.

I love this little favourite and with my favourite vintage and not so vintage pieces.

My vanity with featured tiles splashback

This sweet trio are reproduction perfume bottles bought for just $2.00 each at a local shop...gotta love a bargain.

This mirror was a wedding present to my mum and dad....55 years ago.
I love how my mum keeps everything and hands them down to me.

My Seahorse sits in the corner of the spa....The verdigris green is divine.

Hope you all have a wonderful & Shabby Pink weekend,
thanx for visiting.

~Thankyou Linens and Laurel~

I just wanted to say a big thankyou to Nancy from Linens and Laurel for hosting a giveaway...and guess what I won.  I had never won anything until I started blogging, and now I have won 2 giveaways in a matter of months.
Lucky me I got to pick from a wonderful selection of ribbon trims from Nancy's Etsy shop.  So if you get the chance dont forget to pop over and say hello and have a look at the wonderful trims she has to offer.

~My Pink Saturday Book Review~

I have had the worse May ever.  Quick rundown....first week of May...someone stole my favourite cat......third week of May, had to put our dearest pooch Cooper to rest, and last week my favourite Aunt passed away suddenly.  To say bad things happen in three's is an understatement.  I am now ready for lots of positives  no more sadness or unhappy thoughts.  Although I still have to attend my Aunts funeral on Tuesday I am glad for the opportunity to say goodbye and to remember all the wonderful things that made her so special.
Now for ~Pink Saturday~ is always the one day of the week that never fails to bring a smile as I visit all those lovely Pink posts each week.  
So Thankyou Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for making the start to every weekend a wonderful happy place.

This week I wanted to share with you one of my favourite 'decorating' ideas book...Vintage Vavoom from the editors of Romantic Homes Magazine.  If you ever wanted decorating ideas, this is the ideal book.  Its shows you how to start a collection, displaying, colours, &textures.  A wonderful book full of inspiration.
Hope you enjoy.
