Happy birthday, Pink Saturday people!

It has been one year since Beverley at "How Sweet the Sound" began Pink Saturday posts. I've participated in a few of them. It's marvelous how many pink things we all have combined together! Here is my fine china by Royal Albert, named "Dimity Rose". I began collecting it when I was a young teen. I'd moved into my own room when I was 17, and my Mom encouraged me to begin a china set. Back then you could buy a cup and saucer on sale for $10.00! I've always loved this pattern with tiny pink roses.
Would you like to come over for a cup of tea?

This is a lovely pink pitcher and glasses set I bought while still living at home, when I used to have an abundance of money to spend! I believe it's gold in the glass that makes it pink. I've used it a few times for lemonade. Happy pink day to you all!

There's just something about Pink Saturday that brings our the sweetness in people. Beverly sure knew what she was doing when she brought her concept to the world of blog.

Your offering for this FIRST PINK SATURDAY ANNIVERSARY is wonderful! This is the one day of the week where I can totally indulge my passion without spending a dime!

Wishing your and those you love a special weekend filled with sunshine and family fun!

Came to see if you were doing Pink Saturday this week and found the pretty china from last week. You haven't blogged in a week. Guess we're both slowing down. I finally reached 100 posts.
