Bunnies, doors, ivy & spooky rabbits, it's PINK SATURDAY again. Let's celebrate!

Well, here it is...PINK SATURDAY again over at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. I hate to say it, but if feels like my life is literally slipping through my hands. The days and weeks are rushing by so quickly. I've heard that time flies if you're busy or if you're having fun. All I know for sure right now is that it sure is flying☺

I've really got a little of this and a little of that again this week. I'll start off with something that I totally forgot that I had stored away, my little, pink bunny planter. This cutie patootie was discovered in a cupboard off my family room one day last week when I was rummaging around looking for a vacuum cleaner bag (don't ask!). I grabbed it, brought it upstairs, gave it a bath and decided that it would be sweet filled with ivy. I have to go to the store for more bird seed this weekend and ivy is at the top of my list.

As long as I'm starting off with bunny rabbits, I'll share one with you that I found at my Goodwill Store a month or so ago. There is something about it that attracted me...no eyes, pink accents...kinda spooky, huh? Either I'm attracted to creepy bunnies or I like to bring home stuff no one else in their right mind would find attractive. Uhm, now I'm even creeping myself out! Let's move on...

Each morning I sit at my kitchen table and digest a little something to think about during the day. This book is filled with the kind of goodness and words that bring a gentle warmth to my soul. I've had it for years and each time I read my entry for the day, I'm able to "see" something new and worthwhile to remember or share that I didn't think about the last time around. I like books like that...the ones that keep giving, even after you've read them over and over.

Next in line are my adorable, teeny, tiny canisters. I've placed a penny near them to give you an idea as to their size. I have a set just like this that are regular, practical and useful for storage but these little dudes are more fun to look at!

At the end of the line...and closing the door on this Pink Saturday for me, is the itty-bitty screen door that hangs on the wall in my guest powder room. I found this about five years ago at a tag sale. If I remember correctly, I plunked down a dollar for the right to bring it home with me.

If you l♥ve pink and want to see oodles more and have some fun while you're at it, take a stroll over to How Sweet the Sound. Well over one hundred of us gather at the end of each week to celebrate our pinkness! See you next week...that is...if the creepy bunny rabbit doesn't do something to me first!

The book Simple Abundance helped me get in the right frame of mind to live a less materialistic and more meaningful life. It really does have a beautiful cover.

Betzie said...

The rabbit planter is so pretty. The other is a little creepy but you have to "mother" it. And yes, Happy Mothers Day. I will get to see my daughter but not my sons. I absolutely love being a mother.

All your pinks are so pretty.

Blessings,
Jennifer

Lynn said...

Love your pinks! Especially the little screen door. It reminds me of my childhood.
"Don't slam the BAM!! door."

I am making that coconut cake today (earlier post) mmmmmmmm

Diane @ Four Paws and Co said...

Great pinks today Mimi! Are the tiny cannister's a good size for sugar? Or mix sugar & cinnamon for toast! They're so cute! Don't forget to show us the bunny planter when she's all planted. (I'd go for faux though...) I like the other bunny, but think I'd paint it. ☺

Have a wonderful Mtoher's Day & Happy Pink Saturday! ☺♥☺ Diane

Hi Mimi,

This is my first Pink Saturday. Oh I just love the bunny. Too darn cute. You have lots of pretty pink lovelies here on your blog and over at Etsy. I'm going to have to check out your shop.

Have a great weekend.

xo Cathy

Sares said...

Cute pink things. It's always fun to re-discover something you have packed away. I'm sure that eyeless bunny is perfectly safe! Thanks for coming by Loveleigh Treasures and have a great weekend!

Susie Jefferson said...

I love the pink planter and the kilner jars ( how did you manage to find the exact shade of pink as in the egg holder in last Saturday's PS post?) I also love the very kind comment you left on my blog - very encouraging! AND the Happy Mother's Day (even if I don't have any children myself).

Happy Pink Saturday to you and I hope you have a LOVELY weekend!

Lori said...

I love all your pinks..those tiny canisters are to just die for. They're the sweetest ever. Happy Pink Saturday and have a lovely Mothers Day..

Betty (picture circa 1954) said...

I'm thinking you might have brought that little Goodwill rabbit home because you felt sorry for him. Be careful...it might be like cats and you keep bringing more and more ceramic rabbits home. As usual you have a great collection of pink stuff! Happy Pink Saturday!

Cindy said...

Happy Pink Saturday!

You have such a great selection of pink goodies... even the bunny without eyes. Wait, maybe they are closed and that's why they match his fur. lol I need to get my Simple Abundance book out. I am months behind.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day! Take care. ♥

Debby said...

You have an abundance of PINKNESS to share with us this week! Of course your know, I am DROOLING on my keyboard over that wonderful PINK RABBIT planter! OMG--it's glorious! I know it will be happy to be filled with ivy! Now, your other little bunny is a bit strange looking, but I too, am drawn to the odd--so I would've brought it home with me as well! Your little canisters and screen door are darling pinkies, too!

I loved the poem you shared on your Mother's day post today---it is soooo true.

Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful Mother's Day!!

Dana

Arleen ~ The Tea Room said...

"Simple Abundance" was given to me by a friend many years ago. I only recently began enjoying those beautifully written pages again. Sarah Ban Breathnach has a wonderful way of putting into writing appreciation for things we may take for granted. Thank you for choosing to share this treasured book with us! Thank you, too, for visiting me at The Tea Room, and Happy Pink Saturday to you, too! ~Arleen

Patricia said...
