Christmas in Pink

Greetings All,

It's been almost a month since I've blogged! Can't believe it! We've been so busy and just haven't gotten around to this. Although, it been on my heart and mind to do so.

Last night we had a staff party at our home. It went well and I was pleased how everything turned out.

People were spread out all over our home, but what surprised me the most a group of men were sitting in my foo foo room. I guess they needed to get in touch with their feminine side ha! ha!

Here I thought the ladies would end up there, but we were all in the breakfast nook!

So, here are touches of my Christmas in Pink. I hope you enjoy them too!

This basket is from a precious friend that died a few years ago. I put it out to honor her memory to me and my family this year.

A sweet fan another friend made me....looking a bit yellowed.

Victorian Pitcher & Bowl set

Greetings Ladies,

It's been awhile since I participated in Pink Saturday. It's been crazy lately! Yesterday I went to GW and found something really special to share! Something I've been looking for a very long time and at the right price! Yesterday was the day!

A sweet friend took me to lunch where we chatted over a leisurely lunch and then she suggested that we go GW and I agreed! She found a great deal! A new dress with original price tag of $408.00 and then reduced to $169.99. She paid $17.99 for it in the boutique section! What a deal!

I have some other items that were given to me as well that I'm highlighting today from another friend! I'm so blessed!

This is the item I was speaking about! I've had this dry sink for a long time, but no pitcher or bowl that would fit.

I went on line and saw a set similar to this one. Even down to the detail with the flowers. It was priced at $45.00 if my memory is correct.
Here's the bowl that fits perfectly! I measured it at the store. Because I've been looking for so long I knew how many inches across it had to be! Yay!

Love the pink color and happy I can share on Pink Saturday with you!

This beauty only cost me $19.99 at GW! What a bargain! These sets can be very pricey!

This is another pink set I've had for years that my parents gave me. It sits on the bottom of the dry sink.

Here is the bottom of a tea cup that I mentioned earlier.

The front side of this pretty teacup!

Last but not least from my friend who gave me this adorable teapot. I've never seen one quite like it. I'm going to research it. It's fun doing that!

Hope you enjoyed sharing my pink things!

It's my pleasure to join Beverly at How Sweet the Sound

Thanksgiving Tablescape!

Greetings Ladies!

Last night I worked on setting up my Thanksgiving tablescape. I have to be honest I wasn't looking forward to today as I had an MRI appointment and I really dread them because closed in and tight spaces really bother me.

So, working on this helped me keep my mind off of it! At least for awhile! :-)

Update: all went well today which I'm so relieved! No panic attacks! They were able to do the IV dye contrast on the first try! Yippee!

I'm really happy with the table this year for Thanksgiving and hope you appreciate it as well!

Ok, enough of the chattering and onto the pictures!


Thanksgiving isn't complete without the pilgrims.

Amber glass goblet - love the color!
Another pic of the amber glass! Someone just gave me a box of these. She was going to give them to GW! Their loss is my gain!

Bought the napkins at at yard sale and put them with another napkin for added color. Leaf napkin ring.

Sunflower plates which I bought last year.

First time using these dinner and salad plates! So, pretty- called Summerdale Rose - it's a pumpkin color.

Sweet little teacup. My MIL sent this to me when they diagnosed me with MS this year. I will treasure this and keep it out most of the time to remember her love to me.

A little bit of this and that!

Greetings Ladies,

This month has been blur and has passed by quickly. I truly love the Fall Season and look forward to decorating with those rich warm colors. I'm highlighting different areas in our home. We're not real fancy, but comfortable and that is a blessing to me and our family.

My family thinks I border on being a's hard when people you love give you items or hear you like a particular item. Then you want to display them all. I try to rotate items, but then you have the issue with storing them too.

Guess I need to work on a system...I just like my stuff! What can I say? LOL

Hope you are enjoying the colors, warmth and season of Fall!

Fall Tea Time & Tabletop Tuesday

Hi Ladies,

Our fall weather left Florida this past weekend and we all we got were buckets of rain. Lots of rain and humidity.

To help put me back in the fall mood I did a small tablescape in my foo-foo room to celebrate this special time of year!

Hope you enjoy the pictures! I recently purchased a beautiful brass/gold tea set so that is what I'm highlighting this week.

It's my pleasure to join the following blog parties this week:

Feeling like Aqua

Hi Everyone! This spring season I've noticed everywhere I go the stores are decorating with teal, aqua and pretty greens.  March mark...
