Pink Saturday, Edwardian Heart Jewelry, Antique Postcard

Happy Pink Saturday with How Sweet The sound...the Saturday before Valentine's Day! 

Valentine's Day is for love and lovers, hearts and flowers, pink and chocolate and all sorts of heart shaped cookies of delicious appeal!

 I have some hearts and pink to share...in the way of jewelry items!

This is a 10kt English Edwardian stick pin with a heart motif and oval faux ruby. I love it!

 And a romantic antique postcard with the words of an old song:

Sweetheart - sweetheart
In your eyes love beams

And from the same era, a natural amethyst that is heart shaped with seed pearls from England in 9kt gold. Can't you see this on a ladies hand at Downton Abbey? But not Violet, the Dowager Countess....
All items available at Antiques And Teacups.

A time I love because of the romantic fashions. So elegant.

This photo was from a Tea Time magazine Valentine Tea from 2008.  And the next 2 photos of pinks for Valentine's Day and Valentine's Day teas are from Victoria magazine from 2010.

So have a happy Pink Saturday and don't forget Sandi's Valentine's Day Tea on Monday, Feb. 13th!

And on Tuesday, I'll let you know how you can win a commemorative mug for Queen Elizabeth II's Diamond Jubilee!
