Happy Pink Day again!

It's happened.
I haven't posted all week long, but so far this year I haven't forgotten about Pink Day!
I have a fetish about PINK lately.
All week long I think about pink!
I bought the above plate at Winner's, a store in our local mall similar to Tuesday Morning in the USA.
I call it my glorified thrift store, as everything is thrift store prices but brand new!
This plate promises me that spring and cherry blossoms are just around the corner.

At a local thrift store (which I do occasionally check out) I spotted this pretty tablecloth, hand embroidered for the vast sum of $2.99! I couldn't believe my eyes! I love embroidery and this also has hand crocheted trim in PINK around the edge.

Isn't it gorgeous? It brightens up my dining room on these cold grey days.
I love to change my tablecloths often. When our son was at home, he always noticed!
Robert only notices his meals.

The teapot set is Dimity Rose by Royal Albert, bought many years ago.
I never get tired of this set. I love the PINK ROSES which are so delicate.
Please visit more pinks by clicking on Pink Saturday in my sidebar.
Maybe this week I'll be able to drop by and visit more pinks myself.
Happy pink day!

Loretta, the teapot & cups are gorgeous, as is the table cloth. What a beautiful plate find. Our WA D C cherry blossoms will be at least a week ahead of time this year.

Have a lovely PS weekend ~

Happy Pink Saturday, Loretta! Your table cloth is very pretty but I LOVE your Dimity Rose teapot and cups! That is such a gorgeous pattern.
You had asked me which layout I use. I use the Minima. I'm thinking about changing it though because I would love to do bigger photos. I had been happy all along with it though. Have a nice weekend.

Your plate is nice, but I am a big fan of linens. So the table cloth caught my eye.

Hi, Loretta,
I love that sweet plate! What a great find for you. Yes, it does seem to be promising spring which I am looking forward to. Your tablecloth and tea set are beautiful. Pink roses are my favorite, and I adore that needlework. Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit at Bunny Cottage. I always like to meet new friends. Vicki

I love the table cloth! My Mom used to make them when she was first married, she had a lot of them and they were beautiful. I recently looked at her place to see if I could find them and I couldn't...i wonder if she would remember where they might be if I asked her...
