Pink Saturday!


Welcome to Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound.

The weather was wet and drizzling a few days ago so I went shopping for pink!


A pair of pink Johnson Bros plates with a big pink rose, little blue flowers and green leaves. I think they'll add a bit of whimsy to my St Patrick's Day tablescape!


Ah, so sweet!

Cups and saucers in my favorite Spode Botanical pattern.

A couple of new mugs, also in my favorite Spode botanical pattern!


I finally broke down and bought New PINK kitchen scissors! This may look a bit peculiar, but my hubby is a kleptomaniac for scissors and measuring tapes! I think the pink will stand out when I'm frantically searching tables and drawers because he took off with the scissors again. He always denies having them, then has an "oh yeah" moment as I wave them around and complain. The old black handles just disappear on whatever they're lying on.


Now, please click on Beverly here to visit the other Pink Saturday participants.

Enjoy!

Diane, I love your pink dishes SO much! And I think we all need a pair of those pink scissors! :-)

Bo said...

Hi Diane...what pretty pinks...I laughed about the scissors going missing...not because it was funny, but because my DH does the same thing around here. ;-) Bo

Martha said...

We could never find a pair of scissors . . . until our DD left home for college -- then the 30 pairs all showed up! We've not had a problem since!

Love the Spode pink!

Linda said...

You husband may not want to stroll around with pink scissors so this may have been a smart move! LOL
Happy Pink Saturday.

ann said...

I love those scissors.And of course your new dishes.What a wonderful thing to do when it's raining.GOS SHOPPING`````````.
Nope,i haven't a clue where i got anything,but "someone"else,I think it was Dixie,told me she does the same thing.And she titles it where she got it.DUH_________so since then I have benn labeling.But if i get any feedback on it i'll come tell you.I'm guessing Horchow.it's just a guess...Ann

Mimi said...

First, yes, I have to put it away...sometimes, and it goes into it's little pinkie house!

Second, those plates! Those should be mine! I could eat little cookies made by elfs when I'm using my pinkie laptop and pinkie mousie!

Those scissors should be safe. Thanks for sharing; Happy Pink Day.

Beautiful plates and cups...have to admit I don;t have any in pink but these are just gorgeous!

LOL @ the scissors..I purchased an entire "tool kit" all in pink so the men in the house wouldn't touch them..and haven't !

Linda said...

Smart idea to have pink scissors - that way you know they are yours!
Love the plates and cup & saucer - so pretty! Linda

I Love Spode, but usually it is too pricey for me. Still I love that you shared these great pieces with us!

Happy Pink Saturday

Tomarie said...

Beautiful dishes!! I need a pair of pink scissors too...maybe dh would be to embarrassed to use them and they could finally stay where I put them! Lol Hope you're having a great weekend! :-) L~

Kris said...

Ha' great idea with the scissors. Though I shamelessly admit to using Phil's scissors and not returning them to their home. He even wrote his name on them. pfffffft!! what nerve.

Your plates are stunning. I love them.

Your previous post was just the cutest. The dog photos made me smile and the quotes are so true.
The one about alpo just cracked me up.

Happy PS

Mrs. B. Silly said...

In my house, I'm usually the culprit. Tell DH that real mean don't use pink scissors. lol

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

Sweet find indeed. Aren't you just fortunate to fins such beautiful china?

Oh what better way to make your crafting more enjoyable than by using pink scissors :-)

xinex said...

Your Johnson Bros. dishes are so pretty! The colors, shape and pattern are so sweet....Christine

Justine/Justiney/Tiney said...

I'm thinking that maybe hubby won't want to use pink scissors. Might slight his masculinity. Good move, girl!

Love the plate! Soooooo pretty!

Justine :o )

Loretta said...

Well, how neat! I don't think I've ever seen pink scissors. Yet. I find I'm keeping my eyes open for PINK now that I've joined in Pink Saturday. Your plates and cup are sooo pretty too!

Lavender Chick said...

Love you pink - including those pink scissors... Good idea! I'm going to get a pair for my new office. Also - loved those doggie pictures! Made me smile real big!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

I love all of your plates and cups! I have never seen pink scissors before.

Claudia said...

I love the Johnson Bros. plate - I have rose chintz china, but have never seen in the plate with the pink border! Oh no, I think I have another obsession coming! Happy Pink Saturday!

Tomarie said...

Diane, you made AWSOME suggestions on my mantel! As I said, it's a work in progress...as I have real "brain freeze" when it comes to that mantel! Love the idea of framing out the crosses and elevating the second candle! THANK YOU so much for stoppin' by and your input! :-) L~

rebecca said...

i absolutely love the spod botanical pattern, can you get it anywhere? I'm based in England and am currently researching for my kitchen redesign. I've just signed the contract for a hand made kitchen so am on the look out for something to inspire me. i would really like to create a room that makes me feel the way i feel looking at some of your pictures all calm but cheerful and happy. I have a young family at the moment and we're extending the house to make room for our third child and lucky me i get a new kitchen too. I'm having to live elsewhere though as the building work is at an open house stage and my 9 month old can do without the draft. it'll all be worth it though in the end.

Jill said...

I love the tea cup. It is a really pretty shade of pink.. my favorite color!!!!!!! :)

I could go for a nice cup of hot tea!

The Painted Garden said...

Hi Diane,

Thank you for visiting my blog and now I get to meet you and visit you beautiful blog. The pink Spode cups are my favorite . I have the same pattern in blue and would love to find them in pink.
Loved meeting your adorable animal family.
Have a lovely week.
Blessings,
Erin

Kathleen Ellis said...

Hi Diane!
I so LOVE your new plates...pretty!
Wherever did you find those scissors...I need some, too! Mine are ugly orange...which disappear, too...I'd put pink scissors in a different drawer so my Prince wouldn't know where they are!
Have a fabulous day!
;-D
