Happy 2nd Birthday, Pink Saturday!

What's better than pink, romantic opulent peonies and roses, mismatched china and a picnic in the garden for a birthday celebration? 

I wish you could smell these... Intoxicating!


I found this pretty tea tablecloth with embroidered pink posies for 20 cents- unbelievable. It was brand new in its vintage cardboard box with 6 little napkins.

This lovely china set I purchased from my friend Niki at Nostalgia is English... I simply adore it!


Today I'm joining Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound to celebrate the 2nd birthday of Pink Saturday! Many happy returns, dear Beverly!! Hope you will like having a look at all the gorgeous pinks today, I'm sure it will be much fun!
Wishing you a super-duper weekend,
Monicax.

  19. Love your photo's. My peonies have not bloomed yetas our weather has been so nasty. My tree peony bloomed only to be destroyed by rain and high winds. Will summer ever come.... love to you and Kim. I am with you and the headaches only mine are from slaming my head in the car door! Don't even ask it was such a stupid thing that happened. Had a MRI nothing fractured. Dr. said nothing there. I could have told him that...LOL Love you, Sharon
