A little bit of this and a tiny bit of that. It's gotta be Pink Saturday!

A little of this and a little of that. A real grab bag for Pink Saturday. First you see the calendar on my fridge held up by my pink clips (I love those things). Every month there is a new recipe and this month's entry is for Wedding Cupcakes. Delicate and sweet, I know when I'm feeling in the mood to bake again this will be one of the first recipes I chose.

I have a few of these vintage cats hanging on my walls here and there but this is my only pink one so it's really special to me. I like the whimsical touch it gives to a room when you least expect it to pop up!
This very delicate wallpaper is in my downstairs guest powder room. I loved the light and delicate, almost watercolor, feel it gave me when I first saw it and I love it still.

Pulling up the rear is the wallpaper in my dining room. Dark and dramatic, it was picked out by my daughter-in-law, Cindy. The deep nature of the paper riddled with pinks here and there makes you sense drama, yet there are so many whimsical touches scattered about the room with little pink sheep in a basket, my sewing chair and basket - I love them all.

Beverly over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND is hosting our PINK SATURDAY event. She's been gathering pink-a-licious blogs every Saturday for the past year. Take a jog over there so you can visit some of the most lovely and well done blogs you will ever find.

See you next week!

How lovely to be surrounded by beautiful blooms inside the home.
That's a cute idea to have cats on the wall. It would put a smile on any face.

Happy pink saturday to you - have a lovely week.

Hi Mimi,
Your pinks are so lovely and I especially like the wallpaper in your powder room! I'm pretty sure that's the same paper I used to have in my kitchen! Very soft and pretty. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

PS~ I never get tired of hearing Percy Faith's "Theme From a Summer Place" playing on here! It's one of my all time favourite instrumentals!

And that is what makes a house a home. The aroma of something wonderful baking in the kitchen, being surrounded by all the things you love. The papers are so pretty and I would love to see more, Happy Pink Saturday, Char

A cupcake for a wedding cake :-) With these kind of cakes I've been seeing - I'm somehow liking it for a cake in an occasion. No need to slice and you get to decorate each one prettily :-)
