Pink Saturday is here again!

Today I thought I would show you my green kitchen island with the PINK interior. It took my hubby eight months to build due to the frustrating fact that I designed it as he built. He would complete one part and I'd say, "let's add this or that!" The poor man, he was so patient through the entire process. When I told him I wanted to paint the interior bubble gum pink I thought he was going to flip! He just said, "OK, it's your island."

These are the shelves with the PINK bead board sides and back. I think there's a puppy dog head eyeballing a bunny on that shelf.
One of my favorite pink pitchers with chocolate writing. I have two giant cup and saucers that go with it as well as a large cake plate. The mugs are so much fun to drink hot cocoa out of during the winter months. I am SO READY for winter!
Pink tea cups on a pink shelf.
And finally a pink double Adirondack that my hubby built. A perfectly delightful place to sit in the evening and enjoy a tall glass of lemonade. Maybe I'll add a little lavender. Oh, look...there's a pink flamingo.

For more PINK SATURDAY POSTS don't forget to stop by How Sweet the Sound and say hi to our wonderful hostess Beverly. She has a whole list of other Pink Posts. And have a great PINK SATURDAY EVERYONE!

I still love that pink adirondack! And your rose~ royal albert Lady Carlyle~ set all stacked up is beauty. I only have the tea pot, sugar and creamer. I do four tea cups and saucers in that pink with brown lettering like your pitcher. Mine are by Rosanna inc., what about yours?
