Pink Saturday - Rose Vases

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting 'Pink Saturday', so if you love all things pink pop over and have a look. Last week was the first time I participated and I was amazed to be one of 148 bloggers who did.

Here are my pink contributions this week. I found this pair of vases at the Sausmarez Markets last year. One of the charity shops holds a stall each week and you can find all manner of eye-catching (well my eye-catching anyway) lovelies.



They are not any expensive or rare antique; they are a little stained but they look pretty next to all my other pink items which I keep confined to a shelf in my kitchen so as not to overwhelm my husband with 'froofiness'.


I hope you have a lovely Saturday.

I can't work out how to post-date a post publication so I'll have to settle on a Friday post for 'Pink Saturday' this week and will try again next week.

  4. This is my first visit. The vases, antique or not, are lovely finds! What a great idea to have a designated pink area in your kitchen where you can enjoy it! Congrats on Tilly--adoption is a wonderful thing and a blessing to both parties!

  5. I think these vases are unique. They are kind of deco, and then have the traditional rose motif.

  6. These vases are so beautiful - what a treasure of a find!! And I have to say I just love Tilly and am so happy you adopted her. We have 3 cats all strays or adopted and they are just the best. Our last cat we adopted is totally blind, but you would never know it - she is a hoot! Thanks so much for sharing and stopping by to say hi - Happy Pink Saturday!!

  11. Your vases are lovely! Thanks for sharing on this Pink Saturday.

    My best friends is named Gillian. I'm curious...do you pronounce your name with a hard or soft "g" sound. Her name is pronounced with the hard "g" sound...it means soft-downey haired one in Celtic.

    Blessings to you from Kansas,
