Pinkie Hutch on Pink Saturday

Good morning and welcome to Pink Saturday which is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. I would like to share with you my little china hutch in my breakfast room in all of it's PINK gloriness. It really is one of my favorites PINK toys at the moment! And guess what? It is filled will lots of PINKness.

So I'll just let you look and see for your sweet little ole PINK self!

Here you can see some Pink Willow dishes and a Pink Willow tea pot! I know the bird salt and peppers aren't PINK, but hey, they look so nice up against a PINK dish. I really do believe these little birdies think they're PINK. They love it here! So I'm certainly not going to tell them they're actually white!

Some various pink transferware plates and cups here. See the backboard of my little hutch. It looks so PINK in this photo, but it's not. I covered the back with a tiny tiny little red and white check - hey, red and white mixed together make PINK! Now, did I ever tell you how clever I was? I'm so proud of my sweet little PINK backboard hutch.

More views of wonderful PINKness. See, I even dusted away the PINK dust bunnies for you!

I do just love these little bird sweeties and actually have a couple of sets of them. When I have a dinner party I will put a set at both ends of the table. Only if my table setting is PINK! Wish these little birdies came in PINK. I found them at Target and thought they were just the cutest little things.

Oops! We're supposed to be doing PINK here!

Okay, back to the PINKness.
I just love this little pink cake stand, although it's rather small. Can you love a cake stand? Of course, especially if it's PINK! Don't believe a cake would actually fit on it, even if it were PINK! Instead of a Volcano Cake (you'll know what I'm talking about if you've read about my fallen cake) I would have a flowing lava cake if I put my cake on this tiny little PINKie! Under the glass dome is a salt and pepper I've had since I was a little girl. Alas, they are not of the PINK variety. Shoot! Of course I was roostering way back then too!
Do roosters come in PINK?
Here's some of my PINK Depression glass. I just love this stuff too! I think I love just about everything! The large bowls with the smaller ones are called a Berry Set! I would love some cherries in one of those little bowls right now! PINK cherries, yessir. These glasses are very old and PINK! I have had them a very long time, too! I have always been PINK!

Now this little cuteness is not exactly PINK! But I'm so sorry for him, because as you can see the poor little thing is crying. So I must mention my Pie Bird! We'll just pretend he's PINK!

Dear PINK ones! Make sure you go visit Beverly as she will have all the PINK sweeties you will ever want to see at her blog

Stay PINK and rock on!

uh oh...
Look who is trying to be PINK too! Chloe Dawn! Were you trying to sneek this PINK baby in my post? Look at her, she looks like the cat who ate the bird. Maybe more like the dog who crashed her Mommy's post! lol

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday and I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

*** Make sure you look at yesterday's post so you can take part of a challenge I'm putting out before you!
Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries

Life is just a bowl of cherries;
Don’t make it serious;
Life’s too mysterious.
You work, you save, you worry so,
But you can’t take your dough when you go, go, go.
So keep repeating it’s the berries;
The strongest oak must fall.
The sweet things in life
To you were just loaned,
So how can you lose what you’ve never owned?
Life is just a bowl of cherries,
So live and laugh at it all.
~Rudy Valle

  4. Well your hutch certainly is pretty in pink! Some of your pieces look so familiar. I had to go into my cupboard and I have three bowls of my great grandmothers with the same oak leaf and acorn border!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    take care,

  5. I absolutely LOVE all of your pink-ness in your hutch!! It is all just beautiful!! Also, I have quite a fondness for little white birdies going on right now and I just adore those you have. Have a great Pink Saturday!

  6. What a wonderful cabinet to hold all of your beautiful pink things. I know your little birdies don't mind not being pink because they get to stay with all of the wonderful pink dishes.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  7. ooh, I love all your beautiful pink stuff. Now that pie bird. Does it have a use, or is it just decorative?

    Justine :o )

  9. So many beautiful pink treasures!
    Gorgeous dishes!
    Lovely post,

  10. Oh my! Look at all your pink beauties. Love every bit of it. Sorry your having issues with sitemeter. I don't have one of those on my blog. I was having issues yesterday and had to switch getting onto the internet using Mozilla/Firefox. My issues went away when I used them to hop around to my favs...

  11. Your dishes are beautiful and so is the display. Love it all. Happy pink Saturday.

  12. Crumpet just fell in love with Chloe....maybe it's because she looks so good in PINK!

  13. Oh, I love all of your pink depression glassware and pink transferware! And the little chickies in the cake plate are too cute!

    Happy Pink Saturday! ~Rhonda :)

  14. Very pretty "pink" display. Those naughtly white birds! And Chloe Dawn, she can be whatever color she wants to be!

  15. LOVE all your pretty pink dishes!!! :) Happy Pink Saturday, xo!

  16. What a terrific pink post! I really love everything there from the pink background, pink willow, pink transferware and pink depression glass. I have a particular fondness for pink depressions glass and I have a few pieces of my own if I could just find the box I put it in when I moved here! I really adore that pink cake stand!


  17. Ooh, Ilove that transferware plate shown behind the dove S & P's. How intricate and gorgeous.

  18. I love transferware and depression glass. But haven't found just the right things (and cheap enough) to start my collection. I have the cheap blue and white transferware wannabes from places like Ross, but I don't think that counts! Love yours!

  19. I love all your pinkness of things! Your hutch is lovely with those beautiful dishes...and the bird too. Even Chloe is in on it. Such fun.

  20. Love all your pink, especially the pink cakestand. :)

  21. Loved your pink post. I have a little pink depression glass - but inherited green depression glass from my grandmother. Also, my dishes are similar to yours, but are blue and white Currier & Ives. Yours are great, also. I just enjoy dishes and crystal that are antiques and collectables. So thanks for sharing. blog is back!

  22. I love your pink post! Love the dishes and that little cupcake stand, the pink backboard it all!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  23. Your collection of pink depression glass and pink transferware makes a stunning statement.

  24. Sheila,
    What a lovely collection and so beautifully displayed. Earthly treasures for sure...!


  25. HI Shelia, I love transferware too! Your pink transferware looks just gorgeous displayed in your hutch!!! The "pink" against the wood, so so pretty!....Heidi XO

  26. Wonderful pink post!!!!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  27. I love all your pinkness especially the pink depression glass. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend. ~ Lynn

  28. I love your pink willow dishes and pink depression glass. I think that the red and white check behind them is a great way to show them off. Love your cute little pie bird too. He's almost pink!

  29. Love, love, love your china. There's some Old Castles transferware at Home Goods right now calling my name. The little birdies look right at home on that cute.

  30. Hello! I simply adored your beautiful pink hutch! Wonderful! hugs, Vanessa

  33. Hello Shelia, I am soo late visiting everyone for Pink Saturday, but better late than never!
