Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Pink floral china....oh-so-romantic, don't you agree?  Even though I love my blue decor I can't resist pretty pink dishes and I think they add a nice touch to all the blue I have in my home.  I've never really been a "pink person" but I do like touches of it here and there.  This week for Show and Tell, I'm sharing just a small portion of some of the pink dishes I've collected over the last few years. They are pretty by themselves but I think they look even better when they are mixed and matched.

I love the roses on the plates. Even though I usually decorate with more white thank anything else, I still have a soft spot in my heart for pink roses. I just save them for my dinning room.

Vintage Remixed said...

Yes I do agree. I love me some pink china and actually I just scored 8 plates at an estate sale a couple of weekends ago for $1. Your plates are much prettier though. Have a great weekend!

Hello Cindy and thank you for hosting Show and Tell Friday:) I goofed so my link is in there twice. I want to delete the 2nd one but I don't know how, can I do it myself or do you have to do it?

Thank you and I love all your china!

Your floral china is just to die for. You have the prettiest collection. I read your previous post about your yard and it reminds me of my post on courtyards. They can be so perfect no matter what the walls surrounding them contain. Your backyard space is so beautiful!
Your style is true inspiration.

What lovely china you have!
I love primary colors in my decor, but my college daughter loves the vintage aqua and pinks like you--so at least i'll have some real live exposure to it :)

Have a wonderfully blessed day making your home!
And thank you for being such a gracious hostess, I promise not to spill anything on the furniture.

Debbie said...

I'm one who thinks that there is nothing as lovely as pink dishes and that a person just can't have enough of them.

Yours are just beautiful! Appropriately, they are very romantic.
