Pink Saturday, Pink Teacup And Fall Photos

Happy Pink Saturday with How Sweet The Sound. We have had pouring rain on and off all day. Must be fall! I am sharing a pale pink teacup with gold roses and red accents by Royal Grafton, England in the 1950s.








It is such an unusual combination....the pale pink with red. But the red and gold roses still spoke to me of fall.


For more info on the Royal Grafton teacup at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.


I get Sunset Magazine which I grew up with, being born only 2 miles from their headquarters in Menlo Park, California and love their magazine. I found these photos of decorating with pumpkins from an email I received about my upcoming renewal date. Sunset has neat regional versions. I gave my daughter in law who lives several states away in Utah a subscription for Christmas one year and we found there were shared elements but differing ones as well from our Washington state edition. Quite fun!










Have a great Pink Saturday and watch the video on How Sweet The Sound of Lexington Hospital who won the Pink Gloves award. It's really fun!
