Pink Saturday

Hello everyone and welcome to my Pink Saturday. Today, I am sharing one of my favorite pink collages made from photos I took last summer of pink peonies,a pink rose and a soft pink hollyhock.


Tulips are so beautiful and I love treating myself to a bouquet this time of the year.

Hints of pink!

I took this photo yesterday morning as the snow was really coming down. I love to sit here on a snowy day with a cup of tea, all snug and warm!

Aren't these the most beautiful shade of pink?

I thought I would end with another small collage.

Thank you for visiting me and I hope you are enjoying Pink Saturday at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.Thank you Beverly for hosting again.

Take care,

Carolyn

I love tulips this time of year and I can find a small bunch for $5 -- it's $5 well spent IMO. Love your cozy spot!

I bought some yellow tulips (and a few daffodils, too) and took them to school. The students loved them and each day they were more lovely. Yesterday, I took several pictures of the sun shining through the green stems - breathtaking. I love your pink tulips. Tulips look good enough to eat. I grew up around miles of tulip beds - they'll always be my home flower.

Hi Carolyn,

I am sorry I haven't left a comment earlier, but I have been a bit busy. Your bathroom looks beautiful in white. I like it very much! A clawfoot bath is one of my favourites, but unfortunately we haven't got the space for one in our bathroom. Snow has returned to Holland as well, but with sun and blue skies, so I don't mind that much!

Have a lovely weekend!

Lieve groet, Madelief

Pink Saturday is such a fun time of the week for me in the wintertime. Michigan winters are not only cold, they are very gray and today is no exception to the rule.

Thank you so much for sharing your blog this Pink Saturday and for making my day brighter and pinker and more fun!☺

♥Wishing you sunshine surrounded by those you love today, tomorrow and always♥

Hi Carolyn,
I love treating myself to fresh tulips this time of year too, I buy them while doing my grocery shopping for a song! So I can afford them.
I simply adore all your china, you are my 'China Muse' and I dream of having a cupboard filled with mismatched cups, saucers and teapots one day! Thanks for sharing yours and make me dream!
Thanks also for the delightful words you left today!

I'm in Heaven sitting here viewing all this beauty. Oh my, you take gorgeous photos of the most gorgeous things Carolyn. I could sit here for hours and just take it all in. I remember before I started blogging myself, that I would come here to your blog and just dream of meeting you someday. I never had the courage to leave you a comment to tell you what I thought of your beautiful blog. But I'm here to tell you now.
I LOVE YOUR BLOG!
Hugs

Happy Pink Saturday, Carolyn. I wish I could join you for a cup of tea.

There is something so comforting about being cozy inside when it is so cold and wintry.
