Pink Saturday..

 Hmmmmm, she says. With this turn of events, I can't get things loaded as I would like. What to do???? Ok, she will work with what she here we go.
 This top photo is the sweet hot pad that was an extra gift in the apron give-away that I won. I couldn't believe it got here so quickly. Sweet Ros must have had Santas elves deliver the package themselves. Isn't this the cutest hotpad ever???? Ros said she made it all from the seldvege edges of fabric and I love it. It's so sweet and dainty..and I will hang it in my kitchen with pride.
The next picture is the apron itself in the apron give-away. Isn't it just so pretty???? I love the way it's made..I love the soft,sweet fabric..I just love everytrhing about it. My favorite saying seems to be.."I never met an apron I didn't like".....if it's an apron,I love it. Specially the soft,well worn ones like my mother and grandmother wore. There are some aprons that somehow, when I touch them..I touch a bit backward in time, back to the soft, gentle easy times of being a child and being in the kitchen as a helper, and mama in her apron baking,cooking or sometimes making her famous yeast raised donuts and or fried pies. Peach and apricot was always my favorites.. See what aprons do to me??? :). It's with joy that I hold aprons close and wear them most days.
 The next picture is a little rose cup..with no saucer. I love the's Rose Glow, and the CastleCourt company of Japan made the dishes. I would so love to have more pieces with this pretty pattern. The rose on the back side is so dainty and perfect. This was one of my more expensive things that I bought at the thrift store. I also found vintage sewing things..(just a few)..and lace. Bags and bags of lace. But that's for another post. Happy Pink Saturday everyone. I hope you enjoy visiting about as much as I do.

  8. what a great trio there! The hotpad is really pretty, and I agree, I have some of my mother's aprons and it is like going backward in time when I wear it! I don't remember a day EVER that my mother didn't have an apron on, she never EVER wore pants or a dress too, and it wasn't anything like our family religion or anything either, she just grew up in a time when women wore dresses and they put on their apron first thing in the morning! Happy Pink Saturday! Suzie

    Aprons have been a hot item this year hasn't it?

    Happy PS.
    Love Claudie
    P.S. The other CC has been on a very long blogging break....I miss her.
    Sorry I'm so late. I witnessed the passing of the Olympic Torch today. My 3rd cousin was running with it. Such an emotional day. Took tons of pictures. It was a clear blue sunny day. I met family that I didn't even know existed. The torch is on it's ways to B.C. Canada as you might know. i live in Ottawa, Ontario, long way to go if you know where that is loll

  21. We don't need elaborate decorations or a big tree or numerous gifts under a tree. All any of us needs is to carry the spirit of Christmas in our hearts and to share it all year long with everyone we meet.

    Thank you so much for sharing your blog with me today. Yes, I'm crazy about ♥PINK♥ but I'm also devoted to visiting some of the nicest blogs in cyberspace.

    Hoping your weekend is filled with peace.
