Today for PINK SATURDAY I would like to share a few of
 my favorite vintage covered casseroles.

They all have one thing in common.....they ALL have PINK Roses!!


Wedgwood China ~ Astor





I'm a pushover for rose garlands!!

It just doesn't get any better than a vintage pink ROSE covered casserole,
softly lit by pink tapers in silver candlesticks
atop an antique diamond beveled mirror
used as a plateau
on a pink damask tablecloth, now does it?!?!

Well, it DOES get better ~ I just won a very generous giveaway from Paula over at

This terrific BELLA COTTAGE sign will soon have a place of honor in MY home!!!

Paula has a terrificly gorgeous blog and she often features many of the lovely signs she creates and offers for sale here in her Etsy shop or here on her website. She offers wonderfully aged handpainted signs with such a unique French inspired feel to them, just perfect for Shabby and Chic, Romantic, Parisian Hotel-esque charm! She even takes special orders and many of her designs are sooo perfect for weddings, holidays, and special gifts. I fell in love with her work the first time I visited her blog and feel certain that this Bella Cottage sign will not be the only one of her creations that I will possess! I will be certain to post pictures of my new sign in its new home when it arrives!

I have found THE most wonderful blog that I would like to share with all of you. Found in a quick visit to other PINK SATURDAY participants was The White Bench. It is a  blog just chock full of yummy pictures and Monica loves sooo many of the same things that you and I do. Plenty of sweet pinks and awesome whites abound both here and at her lovely website of the same name, The White Bench. I am simply smitten with her mohair Bear Pin Cushions (especially I wonder why?!?) and her new line of fashion totes that will soon be out!

She loves jewelry, flowers, all manner of vintage items, soft colors, and best of all ... she loves and frequently features her adorable dog, Kim!!

Stephanie, Such lovely things!
You asked on my blog "do you recommend the above movie for Bella's age?" asking about the movie "Remember Me". It's rated pg 13. I think it's OK for our 13 years old Granddaughters. Maybe? LOL...
Hope all's well with you.
Blessings ~Mary~ :-}...
