Plate Rims for Pink Saturday

Good morning, Dear Pink Ones, and welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by our wonderful sweet and famous Beverly at Thank you so much, Beverly for hosting this fun event each and every Saturday.

I was visiting my friend, Cindy, at and she had done a post showing only the rims of her beautiful plate collection. Well, my pink brain juices got to bubbling around and I thought, "What a great idea for Pink Saturday! I'll just copy Cindy!" She even gave me permission to do this! She is one of my favorites. If you're not familiar with her blog, go see her. She's a master at refinishing furniture and she is a master decorating Diva, too!

Okay, here goes some pinkness for you - Pink Plate Rims...

Now hang on tight, her comes some Spode Pinkness...I just love this stuff! Can you love plates, well um, plate rims? Of course you can - they're pink - sort of raspberry pink!

Are you feeling the Pinkness yet? Just wait, here comes more:

Doesn't this little pink rimmed milk maid make your little pink rimmed heart go piddy pat? It sure does mine!
Now some sweet little girly girl Pinkness...awwwww! I do love this stuff!
Look at that little Pink cross stitch trying to steal the Pink show from the Pink rimmed plate!
Just too precious!
Oh, piddy pat goes my little Pink rimmed heart again! My Pink rimmed rooster dessert plates! Woo Hoo! I'm so excited! Do you think I've had too much Pink caffeine this morning? It is possible, you know!

Oh, look! A little bit of Pink rimmed plates in all their Pink oldness!

Sweet little Pinkness Willow!

This Pink rimness is so special and reminds me of an elderly Pink friend!
uh oh...
Chole Dawn! Hi Darling! You told Mommy you wanted to share a little Pinkness too today! What do you have?
Chloe? Darling? Sweet fuzzy face of Pinkness! What do want to show all of our Dear Pink Ones today?
Chloe Dawn!!
Chloe!!!! Yawning in front of all our Pink friends is not very nice to do! Hasn't Mommy told you to cover your mouth when you yawn? That is not an attractive look, Darling!
Yes, I see your Pink blurry little tongue, but no one else wants to see that!

Chloe! Chloe Dawn!! What? You don't even care! You just want to take a Pink nap? Well, okay. You embarrassed your Mommy a little bit in front of our Dear Pink Ones. Chloe...Chloe...
Dear Pink Ones, I do apologize for Chloe Dawn's bad behavior today! I hope you'll excuse her rude Pinkness and have a wonderful Pink Saturday!!

    Pink may come and go out of fashion, but it will always be one of my favorite colors.

    You have some of the most beautiful plates I've ever seen and I love the pictures you took of them :)


  7. Very nice job sharing the pink edges of your plates. I recognized one edging on a plate that I have :) (Acutally mine are on bowls!). Tell Chole Dawn that that is just how I feel when I've looked at the last blog LOL!

    Happy Pink Saturday!

    Take care,

  8. Poor Chloe Dawn. Her little pink feelings might be hurt.

    Shelia, I love all of your pink rims. But, I am in love with the one with the rooster. Where did you find that?

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  9. Your pink rims are delightfully beautiful. So many varieties in your collection. Do you pick them up here and there or do you have each set or several of each kind? I like the milk maid and the rooster and the.... very pretty

And you've got so many plates! Holy goodness, I have only one of those pink and white plates... holy crappers! I just realized I didn't post it in my Pink Saturday post! Whoops!

    And Chloe Dawn. I could never get tired of looking at her sweet fuzzy face. But she does look like she needs a good brushing. Send her to me, I'd love to cuddle with her while I brush!

  46. Sheila, as a plate collector, I just adored your plate rims.. A very clever idea. However, Chole Dawn was the star of this post with her oh hum attitude and yes, a blurry PINK tongue. Smile.

    Thank you so much for your sweet comment on my wedding photo.

    Love ya, Jeanne
