Pink Saturday...Pink Teacups, What else??!!

I had hoped to get out for some outdoor pink photos yesterday but life happened. It was hot here for us, and my wonderful honey wasn't up to our planned day out. Not only was it very hot for us...near 80 degrees...but with his Parkinson's Disease some days are good and some are better, and this was a good day only, which means extra rest and no stress.

So for Pink Saturday with Beverly of How Sweet The sound, I am going to share some pink teacups. What a surprise!!!

The above is one of my current favs, Asiatic Pheasants by Burleigh in pink transferware.

The above pink and birds teacup made by Victoria, Cartwright & Edwards, England recently winged off to it's new home in Australia. I love the design with it's enamel hand painting on transfer.

And this Tuscan, England cup and saucer I love with the art deco design and hand coloring with hand painted enamel paints as well.  For more info on numbers 1 & 3 which are still available at Antiques And Teacups, click on the photos.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. The last few days of warmth brought in the first large thunderstorm we have had in years. It started at 11pm last night and is still rolling around. I am only hoping it hasn't started any forest fires in the Olympic National Forest Or Olympic National Park just to the south of us.

Take some time to visit some of the wonderful Pink Saturday participants. It's so much fun to see all the posts by the talented women!

  12. Love the red-white china tea cups! Happy Saturday!

  13. That is the loveliest pink transferware cup with the bird swooping across the back of it. Lovely group.

  14. Love the Asiatic Pheasants teacup. I just bought a set of dishes in that pattern in brown and white at TJMaxx. There weren't any teacups and saucers though. Now I am on the look out for some. Happy Pink Saturday.

  15. What a smart - and lovely - idea. And what a sweet way of "taking care of the caregiver" for you to have fun with this Pink Saturday blog party. My senior dad had Parkinsons Disease and we know well how vital that is. Have a blessed week.
