YAHOOOOO PINK SATURDAY!!!!!

Hello there to all my fellow Pinky blog friends.  Now I know that I am posting my Pink Saturday on Friday, but from past experience, I thought it wise to post early... lol  In the past I have been late in doing my Pinkness, so now I am a head of myself...  But first of all I want to give a Big Thank You for all the sweet Prayers and kind comments about my Ribs, which by the way I am doing better. But just to be safe, I am still not able to do house work,,,,,, I know it is just killing me, but I am sure I will get through it fine......  :o}  So now I will share with you all my pretty Pink Cutie goodies.    OH and a huge  hand goes out to our Mostest with the Hostess  Beverly of  how sweet the sound  for all the hard work she puts into this very fun Pink  Saturday. So now if you all want to see lots more of lovely Pink Pretties then by all means stop by and give her once over and then you can find so many more to visit.  There are so many wonderful blogs that share their Pinkness that it is so hard to keep up with them all, but do try your best, you won't be sorry.... It is a wonderful way to spend a Pink Saturday morning with a cup of coffee or tea.....  Ok now on with my Pinkies...

My dear sweet Mother in Law surprised me with a beautiful creamy white and pink rose tea set, that was her Mothers. It is missing a few pieces but none the less it is just amazingly gorgeous...  So thanks Mom for giving me such a lovely gift..

Pink Rose Tea Set for Pink Sat. 019  Is in not the most lovely Rose set ever!!!!!!!!  smiling real big;;;  The Pink on some of the Roses are such a light Pink and then the top is a darker Pink..... I am so loving it.............

Pink Rose Tea Set for Pink Sat. 017

Just another shot of the cups and salt and pepper set. I too so many shots of this set, I wanted to get as many good ones as I could, but don't worry I won't show them all.....  he he....

I  planted some very pretty Pink Geraniums  in the very pretty Pink flower pots that sit on my fire place mantle out on our patio. I also found some Ivy that has a bit of Pink in it too.

Don't they look so Pretty but sorry to say that you can not see the lovely painted pots because of the Ivy.  Now do you see the little cup with grass growing in it;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;   well my grandson Zachary brought it home from school they were talking about planted seeds and so they planted grass seeds.... so now I have to mow grass in a plastic cup, have you any idea how hard it is to get the lawn mower up there.............  boy it is not easy.....

Close up of the Pretty Pink flowers, now if you look hard enough you can just make out some of the hand painting on the pot, and no I did not paint them,,,,  wish I did,,, but I don't have that kind of skill....

This is the other side of the mantle,,,  oh dear the grass looks like it needs mowed,,,,,, darn it all..  I had to prune one of the plants so it only has one blooming plant, I planted two in each pot so they would fill it out. They are doing great, these were taken last week so they are bigger now.  Well dear Pink friends I hope you all enjoyed my Pink Pretties as much as I do...  I want to thank you all for taking the time to stop by and leave me a comment.... hint... hehe...  really though you all mean so much to me and I really do love it when you take the time to visit little ol" me...  I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and have fun surfing all the wonderful Pink Saturday blogs.....  Until next time; God bless.

Hugs;

Alaura

That tea set is really pretty. That is so special that your mother-in-law gave that to you.

A mantle on your patio. I found myself wishing you showed more of the mantle. Love the stuff you have on it too. You were too funny about needed to mow that grass in the cup. LOL!

Happy Pinks Alaura! I'm so happy to hear you are feeling better and will soon be in the "pink" hehe. Ooops, didn't mean to "rib" ya! Gee, I hope it doesn't hurt when you laugh!

Speaking of laughing lol @ getting mower up onto mantel!

The rose set is absolutely lovely! What a wonderful surprise!

Now did you mention "fireplace" and "patio" in the same sentence? How fabulous! The pink geraniums are so pretty with the ivy.

Hope you get back into the pink real soon!

Smilingsal said...

Your mother-in-law is gracious to give you such a nice gift. I just read about your cracked ribs; yes, I have heard that a deep cough can do that. You poor baby!

I'm happy to hear that you and your husband are able to work through your problems. God is good.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday Alaura!
Happy to hear that you are feeling better! Your white and pink rose tea set is beautiful! What a nice Mother in Law you have :-) I LOVE your fireplace mantel on your patio idea!
Thank you for your nice comment re:the peony. I just wrap a few together with elastic bands & hang them unpside down in a dark spot in my basement to dry them. They opened up so quickly this year that I think they've probably opened up too much to dry successfully - but I'll try :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hugs and Blessings,

Hi Alaura,
Your tea set is GORGEOUS! I LOVE it!! Your pink geraniums are pretty too. I also have a little grandson named Zachary! He's too young yet to plant me a cup full of grass though as he's only nine months old. But, it won't be long, because they grow up way too fast. Thanks for sharing your pretties and have a wonderful Pink Saturday weekend. Hope you heal up quickly too!

Blessings,
Sandi

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY ALAURA
FIRST I AM SO VERY HAPPY THAT YOU AND YOUR HUSBAND ARE UNITED ONCE AGAIN...MY DH AND I WERE THERE ONCE BUT LOVE AND COMMITTMENT AND GOD BEING THE HEAD OF OUR LIFE WE HAVE MADE IT AND YOU WILL TOO. MARRIAGE IS HARD WORK SOMETIMES BUT WELL WORTH IT. WE WILL BE MARRIED 36 YEARS.
I AM VERY SORRY ABOUT YOUR CRACKED RIBS...THAT HAPPENED TO MY DADDY AND IT WAS VERY PAINFUL AS YOU WELL KNOW
I LOVE THE MANTLE ON YOUR PATIO, VERY ROMANTIC AND CHIC. THE GRASS YOUR GRANDSON PLANTED AT SCHOOL LOOKS TO BE VERY HEALTHY...I THOUGHT IT WAS HYSTERICAL WHEN YOU TALKED ABOUT HOW HARD IT WAS TO GET A LAWN MOWER UP THERE....THAT WOULD BE ONE TINY LAWN MOWER. THE PINK GERANIUMS ARE SWEET BUT THAT TEA SET IS JUST BEAUTIFUL...GORGEOUS...I LOVE THE ROSE BUD ON TOP OF THE TEA POT.
BLESSINGS
HUGS

Susie Jefferson said...

How lucky to get a complete set! It's lovely. Cracked ribs - yes, I'd definitely not be trying to do housework. BAD idea, or you'll wrench all that healing apart. Relax and take it easy for once. Happy Pink Saturday!

Shelia said...

Hi Alaura!Oh, Dear One, I hope you're feeling better from your cracked ribs! I did not know they could break from coughing! Now my advice about the housework...take advantage and milk the heck outta this! LOL
Oh, the rose tea service is just beautiful! I love this. How sweet of your mom in law to give you this!
Your mantle is gorgeous. I love this idea of having a mantle outside. Wish I had the room! Your plants are just beautiful too!
Take care, sweet friend, and remember...milk the heck out of your tiny ribs! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)

Susan (Between Naps on the Porch) said...

How wonderful that you have a fireplace on your patio...love that! Love all your pretty pink treasures! I'm sooo sorry about your ribs...I had no idea you could crack them just coughing...OUCH! Hope you are feeling a lot better real soon! The little knobs you asked about on the hutch came from an antique shop here in GA...they care new things, too. You can also find the cute, painted knobs online and I think I've seen them in some etsy shops. Take it easy and hope you are all better really soon! :-) Susan
