I thought I would start off by showing you a few of my pink teapots. I started with one teapot, and my friends and family decided that I was collecting them. They soon started to multiply around my house. I learned that I really do love them and starting collecting them myself! This teapot is one that I purchased while on a romantic getaway with my hubby to Victoria, British Columbia. I am especially fond of the details. I love roses (you probably know that by now if you have read my blog before) and the delicate details and soft coloring stole my heart. The name on the bottom is "Crown Dorset" Staffordshire fine ceramics - Staffordshire, England.
We bought this one too while we were there and even though they look similar, the name is "Regency" English bone china - Made in England. Two beautiful treasures to help remember a wonderful weekend together!
Edited to add: I have been trying to show bigger pictures - but blogger is cutting them off on the side so they look off center in these photos. ERRR! Can anyone tell me the size they put their Flickr photos at when adding images to allow for a larger picture that fits in the grid - so to speak - or will I have to get rid of my background in order to do this??
I received this teacup from a dear friend years ago. I have always enjoyed it's delicacy. It is extremely fragile and alas - this is one of the treasures that didn't quite make it through my children's childhood unscathed. It is glued together with just a tiny little piece missing in the front. Even though I will never be able to use it - I can still enjoy it's beauty!
Another one of my dear friends gave this picture to me during a very difficult time in my life. She told me she thought that I was the strongest woman she knew. I didn't feel strong at all at the time, but I will never forget the lessons I learned then - and the strength I feel in myself now having gone through the trial. This beautiful picture has traveled with me ever since and it is a reminder that God has given ALL women the strength that we need at the time that we need it most!
Last but definitely not least, I wanted to show you what I found at the thrift store the other day - I couldn't pass this treasure by! Not only does it have pink in it, but it has the blues that you see throughout my house! If you look closely you can see the "pink" pot inside that holds the african violets. I need to have my husband drill a hole in the bottom of the pot so that I can plant the violets in it permanently. I am worried that it will break if he tries although he has been successful doing this with other pots. I would hate to lose a treasure this way -even though it only cost me a few dollars! I LOVE thrift store shopping - don't you? Such beautiful things to be found at a fraction of the cost! Gotta love a bargain!
Well - I am off to see your pink treasures for this week!
