Spring's First Pink Saturday

Happy Spring and happy Pink Saturday to all! Thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for coordinating another weekly celebration of all things pink!


A pink antiques shop I saw last weekend (on our drive to go maple sugaring = YUM!)


Pink flowers on plates I really really really want from Cath Kidston. Gasp ... sigh ... I just can't justify the cost (with shipping from London, etc.) -- does anyone know if Cath Kidston is sold in the U.S.?


One of a set of four plant markers with pink floral print at my Etsy shop


Pinky Tuscadero!


Have a wonderful weekend!

I love the pink. When my hair isn't reddish, I love pink the most! :0 Thanks for visiting my blog. I didn't notice, did you enter my birthday contest. Please do. I'm going to follow you.

Oh Elyse, great pink post! Love those dishes - do you think maybe they might be sold in Canada, if not the U.S.? Loved your anthropomorphic comment! And no, its not too much information - that's exactly the way I am! Have a Happy Pink Saturday!

Elyse said...

Hey Big Sis!

I love your pink posts!! And, can I tell you how much I love your Etsy shop. We must be sister: your creations are the type of treasures that I love to keep in my apartment! It made me so happy looking at the beautiful pictures of all of your art.

So, here's Friday's pop quiz for you: if you had to pick a favorite baked good, what would it be? I made some lava cookies today, which was a perfect end to this week. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! Any fun plans? (By the way, maple sugaring sounds sooo fun!!)

xo,
Lysie

Lovely pinkness! I'm not sure if Cath Kidston sells in the US.
You could always check e-bay and see if anyone is selling anything there.
Have a lovely weekend
love

I have never seen Cath Kidston in the US, but that doesn't mean it isn't sold here. Maybe you could google "Cath Kidston USA" or something like that and see what comes up!

I love the pink antique shop, it looks adorable! How fun to go maple sugaring! I wish I could go spend a day doing something like that! :)

Betty Jo said...

OMGosh! I would not be able to pass that pink antique shop up. I love the CK teapot in that pattern. I wish the CK stuff was sold in the US. The expensive shipping cost also stops me from ordering. ♥

Dru said...

beautiful architecture on that pink building. Happy Pink Saturday and have a great weekend.

Mimi said...

I too love Cathy Kidston items! I have a friend in England that has sent me a few things like the bag they sell at Tesco and some soaps. Anyhoo, from what I can tell the only thing that's sold in the US right now is the bed linens. Here's a link for you. http://www.cathkidstonhome.com/ I hope it will work ok. If you request a catalog on the European site, they will send it too the US. Lots of eye candy in that catalog!

Hi Elyse!

That is too funny about the pink antique guy! I can just see you in there, "Do you need some help?" "Uh...(cough, cough).no..(cough, cough)!" At least the outside of the building is awesome!
