Pink Saturday

Good morning everyone and welcome to Pink Saturday Hosted by Beverly at How Sweet The sound. These are my PINK items for this's a strange little collection of of random items that are just hanging around the house. Of course the beautiful pink roses are from the front yard, but the name of the bush eludes me at the moment.
The little angels are a plaque that I painted years ago when I was taking tole painting classes and is still one of my favorite pieces.
I love the color pink so much that I bought this box of salt water taffy "just for the box." I have it displayed on my 1860's pie shelf in the dining room next to another pink box with chocolate writing.
The darling little hat boxes were picked up at Big Lots and I use them to store my vintage table linens as well as some gorgeous tiles that are one day going to be made into a fire place mantle. Hey, they have pink in them...maybe I'll include them in next weeks post.
Well, this is a short post as I'm off this morning to meet a friend and do some antiques shopping so I hope you all have a wonderful Pink Saturday and for more pink posts go visit Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound
P.S. I can't view my blog, can anyone else?

Cori, Happy Pink Saturday.

I love all of your pink - especially those beautiful roses.

From what I understand, blogger users that have sitemeter on their blogs are having problems. It sounds as if the solution is to remove sitemeter.

I love all the pink things you shared! The roses are beautiful. Pink roses are among my favorite things, and I love them in real life, as silk, painted on porcelain or cast in glass.

I am enamored of those pretty boxes! I will have to go to Big Lots and see if they still have anything similar!
