It's Pink Saturday, what do you see?

What do you think that this is? Where do you think they are? How about what is directly below? What you see is the front of my breadbox and the little rosebud below is painted on the inside of the door. I ♥ my breadbox!
I just bet that you'll be able to guess where the pink curtains hang in my home. Yes, you're right! They are in the little powder-room on the main floor. That room, as is most of my home, is ultra feminine and filled with girlie goodies galore!

Let's see, we have little, pink rosebuds and pink stripes all wrapped up in the prettiest ticking that makes my ironing board a pleasure to see and to use! Hey, if you have to iron, you might at well have a good view, right?
Last, but not least because it is used nearly daily is, you guessed it, my handy-dandy kitchen stool. It helps me get to the top shelf of my cupboards and pinch-hits with my grandsons when they need a little boost at the kitchen sink to wash their hands before we make cookies!
There you have my Pink Saturday goodies. You'll find oodles of gorgeous blogs participating this week over at Beverly's HOW SWEET THE SOUND.

This week she asked us for hints about how we make all of our visits for Pink Saturday because so many of us love to be included. Believe it or not, I visit each and every one of the blogs and sometimes there are over 160 of them! How do I do it? I divide Beverly's list into four sections. I do one in the morning. One around lunch-time, one after dinner and the last usually early on Sunday morning. They are all so pretty that I just see them each and every one!

The stool is so pretty... really nice tole painting is hard to find down here. The gray background really sets it off... one of my favorite color combos.

Happy Pink Saturday :-)

Everything is sooooo girly...I love it! Those pink poweder room curtains, with the lacy sheers underneath are perfect for my spare bedroom, which is my office/sewing room, and I just decided to do it in pink and white, so this was inspiring for me! Did you make the curtains, or buy them? Love the breadbox and stool too. Perfectly Girly Pink!

Beautiful handpainted things. Did you do the painting? I used to do lots of decorative painting. That was during my pre-reading glasses days. Not sure how well I could see to paint now.

Hello Mimi
A special blessing to you for visiting every one,thank you so very much for your visit to me. I am sorry I am responding so late, I got called into work,unexpectedly.

If I had that bread box,I too would love it,what a lovely surprise.
Your kitchen stool is very pretty, my grandson loves to do dishes with me I am sure he'd love to hop up on that stool, instead of dragging the dinning chair to the sink:)
Happy Pink Saturday to you.
Chat with you when I rtturn from my trip.
Hugs
Gracie
PS your grandson is so cute,in your side bar.

Have a lovely weekend, too!

Hello Mimi, you are amazing with your comments. I am so wordy it takes me forever to visit so many pinkies. It is a challenge for me, but I would love to do better. I do enjoy Pink Saturday so much. Here it is Sunday and I am still trying to visit 'my' visitors. thanks for your hint.

I love your cute post today as always. Your pretty pinks tell a wonderful story. I do enjoy your visits too. Thank you for enjoying my castle posts. Your sweet comment is my reward for all the time it took to do those posts. I struggled with so many photos to share. BIG smile here.

Meg said...

Has it stopped raining yet? I am still visiting pink posts as I pulled my back last Friday and wasn't able to sit at all on Saturday. Your pinks were worth the wait.Such a lovely blog. I bought a stool at auction the other day for $3 it is an all wood step stool and you have inspired me to paint it pink with flowers for my grand-girls to reach the counter when we make cookies. Have a great day !Meg
