Pink Saturday - 3rd Birthday Celebration


Happy Pink Saturday! I love pink! Almost any shade of pink! I haven't participated in Pink Saturday for a while. Other commitments have kept me busy but I'm getting back in gear. Be sure to visit Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound. There's always a crowd gathered over there to see pretty pink treasures!

This is actually a repeat of one of my first Pink Saturday posts in 2009. I have made some updates and edits to it. I hope you enjoy it...and that your memory is as bad as mine. It might seem like you are reading it for the first time! There is a story there but I'll share it another time re: my memory.

Let's take a look at the shelf in my Hearth Room. I love pink so I have a number of pink romantic items on the shelves. I change this monthly at least.


The first shelf has nothing pink. It's a mirror, a Yankee Candle mosaic shade in Clean Cotton scent and photo books I have done at Shutterfly. I love the crisp clean smell of Clean Cotton and use it more than any Yankee scent. Mr. Dumpling is very particular cause he "says" he has allergies. I think it just means he only likes certain scents.



On the next shelf is a cute little Victorian figurine marked Japan. I picked her up at an estate sale for a few dollars just because I loved the colors.


Moving up to the next shelf is the Salem Godey Plate I have featured before. I love using these plates in February because they are so very feminine and romantic. Wouldn't you just love to dress like this and have tea parties on the veranda?

The figurine next to it is one of my favorites. The colors are delicate in shades of cream, green and little pink flowers. She's so graceful! Her mark is Franklin Porcelain - Sophia.
Below is an adorable Southern Belle powder jar. I just love her. I saw her at a local estate sale and HAD to have her! She almost started me on a new collection of porcelain powder jars but I have restrained myself thus far.


Next to her is a lovely hand painted bowl with gold trim. The flowers are just beautiful going from blush, pink and yellow. I apologize for the bad picture but I did get a close-up of the lovely flowers.



On the top shelf is one of my many Plantation books. A true Southern Belle has to have books on plantations you know! I wonder if the more you have, the more of a Belle you are? I want to be a certified (not certifiable...that's different) Southern Belle by all means!



The rose bowl is one of my favorites also. Yes, I have a lot of "favorites". What I love about this bowl is that it is even prettier on the inside! It is marked the Henry Ford Museum. Mr. Dumpling was given this by a man who used to work for him.


That's it for Pink Saturday this week. I adore Pink Saturday and so glad it has survived to be THREE years old. Happy 3rd Birthday Pink Saturday!

Love your shelf. Everything on it (that I can see) is pretty! I bought my mom that same HF Museum bowl at a consignment store (but didn't know it was from there), but I think it's so pretty.

Hi, Miss Judy Bug! Love that name so much. It makes me happy to say it. :-)

Everything in your shelf is so pretty, but the thing I love best are the roses in that bowl! It's so pretty! I have to admit, I love the ladies and the other plates, but there's just something about those roses that reminds me of happy things... like weddings and prom corsages and little girl birthdays and spring teas. Love it!

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday...

XO,

Sheila :-)
