My favorite tray handpainted with gorgeous pink roses by my sweet friend Celeste of Celestina Marie Designs

Pink Porcelain Roses

My Vintage Pink Kitty Baby Cup

Oooh, I don't want to get up....Give me just FIVE more minutes to stretch my sweet little pink padded paws.....OK?....Wait....I gotta get up!


My post today is cute Kitty themed! So meow on over to our purr-fect hostess, Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see more PINK participants today.

My kitty just loves to bat crocheted items that have been stiffened around, so I have had to hang/place MANY things up out of his reach, like this sweet PINK and white crocheted wedding bell!

All you girls know of my love / fascination with antique mirrors & how I also sell them here on eBay. Well, here is a unique one that I have NEVER seen another like....

Pretty, even at a glance, right? But when you look a bit closer, doesn't it look like a kitty cat's head?


Or have I been sniffing just a tad too much Windex?!?!

See, here are her ears......

Oh well, if you aren't into kitty cats, go back & enlarge each pic and enjoy the pretty pinks reflected in the background of the mirror & my special old crazed teapot with the teensy pink roses on it!

As for me, I'm off to get a humongous dose of PINKNESS over at Beverly's, and then I just might have to take a little cat nap!

Hi Stephanie,
I love this post. The mirror does look like a cats head outline. How cute is that. I think I would sit a kitten collection around it. I love mirrors too. You can do so much with them. I love that kitten in bed stretching, now how cute is that one? Thanks for sharing this Happy Pink Saturday. I had a wonderful time. Please stop by and say hi. Country Hugs, Sherry

Connie said...

Oooh, I definitely see it also, sweetpea! Yep, it sure does look like a kitty. I'm going to be doing a blog on Mandy's cats soon. She insisted! LOL But I'll do it because her cats all have attitudes!
Big big smooches for mum, sugar.

Lori said...

H iStephanie!
You know our minds are so alike! Even before I read the posting I thought the mirror had kitty qualities!!! How cute!!So what have you been up to all summer?? You must still be busy, no posts during the week! I'm gonna email you in a minute, so ta-ta! Gee if we lived closer we could have a pink shop called La-Di Da!! Don't you love it?? I can imagine how beautiful it would be!!! Love to you, Lori


Purrrfectly aborable pink saturday post! You are truly the cats meow......and I love the mirror.....I'm gonna have to check out you e-bay space! Happy PS.

KarenHarveyCox said...

Oh Stephanie, I just stopped back to say, what fun for you and Celeste to get together. When I saw how she framed the painting and where she hung it, I couldn't believe it. It looks like it was always there. You two must be so lovely together. Her home is a dream and I just love what she did recently i the garden with painting that mirror.

I hope you have a beautiful weekend.


♥Mimi♥ said...

Oh, no, I didn't paint my little stool. If I had I certainly wouldn't be looking as sweet! I would be all one color☺ I bought it on eBay about 5 years ago.

Beverly said...

You are right, it does look like a cat's head. I probably wouldn't have noticed if you had not mentioned it.

Happy Pink Saturday, Stephanie.

Hi Stephanie

Keepers of Christmas is just something that I call people who prepare for Christmas all year long. I wanted to add your Christmas blog to that as a link. I used to have separate blogs for holidays, but have since incorporated them all into one The Old Parsonage.

Love your vintage mirror and yes, I do see the head of a cat:)


Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Stephanie, so happy to see you came over on Saturday. I am a tired little girl from all the moving! Ha.

Love all your pink goodies and the tray is truly lovely.

Hope you are taking lots of Rooster pics....I am!!!

Hugs, Barb

The tray is very pretty with the roses. Celeste really makes beautiful things.

The mirror does look like a kitty silhouette :-) Though i really haven't thought of it until you asked.

I bet the kitty stretching went back to sleep :-)

Busy weekend. Just now getting around to Enjoy all the PINK.
I love The pink little paws!
Don't forget to "Look in the Nook"

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Stephanie,
I love the mirror and yes I do see the head of a sweet kitty. The ears and top of the head. But the real kitty waking up looks so cute stretching. Sweet pink paws are adorable. Love the vintage kitty cup.
You are so sweet to show the tray. I painted that so long ago, I forgot about it. I love the porcelain roses you have with it. They are gorgeous.

Always a pretty pink Saturday here sweet friend. You inspire me to paint some kitties.
We are getting lots done on our staycation. See you when I am back in the studio friend.
Love you,
Celestina Marie
