Sharing one of my antique oak barley twist framed mirrors
                                                 for sale here on eBay

I found this old chocolate pot minus its lid for a great price
The pink and red roses on it just make my heart sing!

It even has a pretty pink handle embossed with florals!

I'd never have know the vase was actually a chocolate pot if you hadn't said so... it's gorgeous. The colouring is just perfect. If I saw one, I'd have to have it too.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi, Stephanie,
Yummy mirror, and you know how much I love handpainted china. That pitcher is pretty as can be. You always have so many wonderful pretties to show us. Enjoy your weekend, sweet friend! Vicki p.s. Don't worry. I hadn't heard the May flowers and Pilgrims joke either until I taught 3rd grade ;)

Stephanie, love the mirror and the chocolate pot. I am really getting into mirrors now, but not sure where I will put them or how I will use them. I found one in a catalog that I want for my antique dressing table, so need to save some bucks to get it. Had to get new glasses first and my meds have gone up. May have to take them every other day, if it keeps up. Beautiful post as always. Big Hugs, Pat

Hello Stephanie. Love that chocolate pot even without the lid. Beautiful colors. I too bought a chocolate pot without the lid for it's beauty alone. A great thing to put fresh flowers in.

Today is my grand's birthday. I did a special post for him. If you find a moment come over to comment. He will be looking for comments today like any kid. He is 13 years old.
Thank you so much.

Hello Steph, I'm still making my Pink Saturday visits. LOL I love your post today! So many pretty things here. That choc. pot is so pretty I would not mind a lid missing either.
