Pink Saturday

Hello, Dear Ones! Welcome to Pink Saturday hosted by Our Most Pink Dear Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Today is the Pinkest day of the week and your eyes will be filled with the most Pinkness you've ever seen if you will just pop over to visit Dear Beverly ~ after you visit me, of course! :)




Today I'm sharing some Pinkness in a little vignette I've set up for you today. First, see my little Pink blooms? Now don't laugh. So many of you have gorgeous flowers, especially our Dear Beverly with all of her roses, but I just have some crepe myrtles from my little bush in the back yard. But they are pretty, aren't they? Did you ever as a little child take the almost open bulb balls of these and squeeze it just to see the flowers pop out? Oh, I did and I still do it occasionally at this olden age I'm in. We must never forget to play! :) Here I go off on one of my rabbit trails. I must stay focused!!

These Pinkness of blooms are poked into my Royal Copley daffodil pitcher. I love this pitcher with it's olden daffodils - Pinkness turning into yellow! Oh, it's a happy piece!

Sniff sniff? No, they don't have a sweet smell. Too bad. Oh, look! There are some of the little bulb balls just waiting to be squeezed.

Here are some sweet little tiny vases that my grandmother passed down to me and they're covered in Pinkness! So sweet.

I have a platter sitting at the back of this vignette and on the rim of the border are lovely bunches of flowers with a Pinkness of rose right smack dab in the center!

I have a sea shell wreath that I made many years ago hanging on my shutter screen (I made this in all of my wonderfulness, by the way, you know I'm kidding) and some of the shells have Pinkness on them.

Lovely Pinkness of shell! Do you hear the ocean? :)

My shell wreath is hung up with a sweet little Pinkness and white checked ribbon!

As the Pink sun starts to set in the west, my little Pinkness of votive candle adds a little romance to this little spot!

I'm so glad you've stopped by to visit. Please don't forget to pop in to see our Most Pink Hostess, Ms. Beverly!

Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

If

If a picture paints a thousand words,
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show the you I've come to know.
If a face could launch a thousand ships,
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you,
You're all that's left me too.
And when my love for life is running dry,
You come and pour yourself on me.

If a man could be two places at one time,
I'd be with you.
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way.
If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die,
I'd spend the end with you.
And when the world was through,
Then one by one the stars would all go out,
Then you and I would simply fly away
~ sung by Bread

  1. Your pinks are so sweet Shelia! I loved seeing all of them, especially the sentimental ones. They're the best, aren't they? It's funny that you should use crape myrtle today because I was looking out my window and eyeing some in the park nearby. My neighbor takes care of the gardening over there, and I was just thinking I might ask her if I might snip a few. You know, for the sake of pruning the bush! ;-)

    Hope all is well in Texas. It is hot here today, and I think we might get some relief (a tiny bit) tomorrow.

    Happy Pink Saturday,...

    XO,

    Sheila :-)

  2. Hi Sheila :) You have set such a sweet vignette for us to see...lovely pinks for us, and I especially love the pretty little vases that were your grandmothers. How very special they are :)

  3. Your pinks are so adorable, Shelia! I like your crepe myrtles. I wish I could cut some of mine but they are so tall and they only bloom on top. Love your vases and the wreath. You are so talented and so creative...Christine

  7. Happy Pink Saturday Sheila Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh sweetie, I LOVE your crepe myrtles. They are so beautiful, Believe me they are every bit as beautiful as a rose. They are a different flower ofcourse. We won't tell them what you said about not being as beautiful.

    Oh and the vase is gorgeous. I love the way the colors flow from one to the other.

    And what beautiful treasures of your Grandmothers. Things to make you smile on a blue day just knowing how she loved them when she received them. Beautiful memories sweetie.

    Now your sea shell wreath is just DDG. I love it. How pretty the colors are and the ribbon is the element of surprise. I love it.

    Beautiful share today Sheila Sweetie. Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you. It will make you laugh.

    Have a great weekend sweetie.

    Country hugs...Sherry

  10. Hi Shelia, Here I am visiting because I have missed you and my Pink Saturday is not done yet. I have been too your tablescape too. I love the color scheme and green really is my favorite color. Everything looks gorgeous. Faux is a good thing. Big smile. Your dishes just make me smile. Nice job Shelia as always. LOVE your napkins. LOL.

    Now that pink is the most charming vignette. Crepe myrtle is so pretty and the platter makes a great background. The little vases are surly a treasure from your grandmother. I bet she loved pink too. The wreath is perfect for the Gulf location of your home. Love the shells, I always used to go to Sanibel Island in FL. to collect shells when I was a teen. Now, the shells are gone and the island is all built up. It's sad.

    A lovely PS post. Now I better get busy and do mine if I want to go to bed at a decent hour.
    Love ya, Jeanne

  11. I have never thought of snipping my myrtles!! What a great idea! Mine are fuschia and I love them! So cheerful! Yours look gorgeous, Sheila especially in that lovely vase.

    All of your pinkness is pretty!! And of course being the beach bum I am...the shells...have my heart!

    Have a delightful weekend, gal!
    Blessings and love,

  12. Hello Shelia~and here I thought I was the only one who would pop those little blooms. When I was a little girl I use to go around squeezing every bloom I could find. I had no idea in the least that it was disrupting the little flower.
    The pink blooms are my favorite.
    I love to see them flowing forth from a hanging basket.
    Sweet wishes,
    Sara

  15. HAPPY PINK SATURDAY SWEET SHELIA,
    THE GROUP BREAD WAS MY MR. SIMPLY AND MY NUMBER ONE GROUP WHEN WE WERE DATING IN HIGH SCHOOL...WE STILL LOVE THEM. WHEN WE HEAR THEM ON THE RADIO WE BECOME ALL GIDDY.
    OH YOUR CREPE MYRTLE IS THE COLOR MINE WAS UNTIL MR. SIMPLY DECIDED TO GIVE IT A DEEP TRIMMING TOO LATE IN THE FALL AND HER HAIRCUT WAS FATAL. I LOVE CREPE MYRTLES...TO ME THEY ARE THE ROSE OF THE HOT SUMMER.
    I HOPE YOU ARE NOT AROUND ALL THAT FLOODING IN TEXAS.
    YOUR VIGNETTE IS JUST BEAUTIFUL, ESPECIALLY WITH THE CANDLE BURNING. YOU HAVE MOTIVATED ME TO MARCH INTO HOBBY LOBBY AND SEE IF THEY HAVE SOME SEASHELLS AND MAKE MYSELF A WREATH. YOURS IS SO PRETTY. HOW BLESSED YOU ARE TO HAVE YOUR GRANDMOTHERS VASES...IMAGINE HOW SHE MUST HAVE FELT AS SHE RECEIVED EACH ONE AND THE OCCASION......
    I AM JUST DROOLING OVER YOUR ROYAL COPLEY DAFFODIL VASE. STUNNING. I HAVE 3 CATS...MINE WOULD BE IN MY GLASS DISPLAY CABINET.
    HAVE A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND.
    HUGS MY FRIEND
    SIMPLY DEBBIE

  17. Such a lovely gathering of pinkness, Shelia! I swear, I have a bowl from my Mother that matches your platter. She used it beneath a pot as it has a crack in it. I was going to break it up to use in a mosaic tile top for a table but just couldn't bring myself to smash it. I must go find it to compare.

    Thanks for sharing all your sweetness today. :D

  18. Oh, what pretty pinks you have for us today. I, too, love crepe myrtle..always such a pretty color.
    I want a cutting garden so bad...but I just can't seem to grow anything much. The hot winds and dryness is partly to blame but I see others out here growing beautiful flowers. I actually don't like working in the yard very much so....there ya go!!

    Love the beautiful vase...

  24. Ah, pretty pinkness prepared by a posy popper!! Sorry, I just couldn't resist. I'm a posy popper too. Have you tried unopened morning glories? They are the very best for popping. Have fun!!

  28. I love crepe myrtles. We had a beautiful one when we lived in Florida.

    Your seashell wreath is fabulous. LOVE it!!

    Finally, as I got to the end of your post, I found myself singing along. Although I haven't heard "If" in probably 30 years, I knew the tune immediately. Amazing how songs go deep into our brains and remain there for years, isn't it?

    Have a lovely, "pink" day.

  35. What a great post! I love Bread, they were my favorite band back in the 70's. Crepe myrtles grow wonderfully here in California, yet I still haven't planted one! Happy pink Saturday, everything is just so cute! Marcia

  36. Oh Sheila, that pitcher is devine!!! I love how it drifts from pink to yellow. And crepe mrytle aren't that common in these parts, so it's wonderful to see them so beautifully displayed.

    Hope you'll come and join in the fun of Summer Sundays!

  38. You made me chuckle this morning as I remembered that, although we didn't have crepe myrtles, as a youngster I used to pick the camellia buds off my parents bushes and "peel" them. Sheesh! Happy PS, just joined your blog...Licks & Wags, Niki

  55. Hi Shelia,
    I'm loving your pinkness today. The vintage vase is so pretty and your crepe myrtles are looking lovely too.
    Mine are poping out all over the place.
    I even had one larger tree that spawned a new one and it's blooming too.

    I love your vingette too, so pretty.

    Happy Pink Saturday sweet Girl.

  56. Sheila, Your pinks are especially pretty and sentimental today!
    Your crepe myrtle blossoms are the perfect shade of ballerina pink~ my favorite! I would love to have this beautiful bush in my yard. I just recently found out that there are some this far north.
    Their prettiness makes up for the lack of smell.
    Sheila I am drooling over those lovely bulb vases. Do you use them. I need to get some. I love to force bulbs!
    I can alway count on you to bring beautiful things to see every time!

  62. Happy Pink Saturday, my dear sister. I hope you enjoyed being one of this week's featured participants.

    Your pink vignette is so pretty. Every piece is wonderful. I adore crepe myrtles, and I never knew about popping the little balls. I'll be heading outside to try this. And, your Royal Copley daffodil pitcher makes my heart go pitter-pat. It is my two very favorite colors.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Shelia, I love your crepe myrtles, they are the same as the ones in my yard. I haven't popped a seed since I was a little girl - but guess what, I am going out to try it now. Thanks for bringing back such sweet memories.
