My 1st Pink Saturday!

I came across the idea of Pink Saturday last week and decided to join in. So today marks my first post for Pink Saturday, where I share something pink! This week I am sharing this teacup and saucer in my dining room (hopefully the picture is not too fuzzy, it's difficult taking pictures without flash! You can enlarge the picture for a better view). It's not completely pink, but I think the pink flowers and trim on it is what makes it so sweet. I had never noticed before, but when I looked on the bottom I discovered it was made by Shelley China, in England.
I think teacups are so much fun to look at, and they're great to collect and decorate with!

I'm looking forward to my next Pink Saturday...

Let them eat cake...on these plates!

I found these while doing some online window shopping, and think they are just too cute. Aren't they unique? Each of these cakeplates showcases Marie Antoinette in a different outfit, with the name of one of her homes next to it. You can buy the set of 4 for $39.99 at Decorative Dishes. While you're there, check out some of the other "Rosanna" designs, they're really fun to look at!
