Soft and Sweet!

Hello Everyone,
      It is Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound so I am joining in with some soft and sweet pinks.
I love hydrangeas in all shapes,sizes and colors but today it is all about pink!

My lovely old teapot from Coulson's in Summerside was just $3.
Dainty china





I love the Polar Ice or Polarais rose above-it is new to my garden last year but it is quickly becoming a favorite.I bought it from Pickering Roses in Ontario.

Just another reminder of the garden tour on Sunday afternoon from 2-4:30 rain or shine and for more info you can email me(profile page). My husband and I have been busy as beaver's getting the garden whipped into shape!

There will be lots more pinks to see at How Sweet the Sound so have fun!

Have a wonderful weekend,

Carolyn

Sorry Carolyn, there were too many typoes in my first comment. I try so hard, and preview, but even so ...
Those pink Hydrangeas are so much nicer than my plain white one. Do the flowerheads dry well?
Your china reminds me of a picture on my blog. Only that one we can't eat off :-)

Beautiful pinks today Carolyn. I think I saw that very teapot at the antique store I was in last Saturday and you really got a deal! If it's the same, the owner said it was dated to the 1850's, English lustreware and he's asking over $100.00 for it!! YIKES! I'd love to tour your gardens tomorrow. I hope you have a wonderful day for it and a great turnout. Blessings, Pamela

Stunning! The pink is so soft and dreamy. Beautiful post Carolyn! I also just read your August tour post. I love the picture with the virgina creeper enclosing your window. On the south side of my home my creeper has been chewed by beetles this year, I'm going to miss that bit of privacy.
Have a great tour, hugs Rosemary...xx

HI Carolyn,
Lovely pink hydrangeas- My sister in law had them in her wedding bouquet last weekend- lavender and deep blue purple colored ones- they were gorgeous.
My son and his girl have landed in your neck of the woods and have begun to set up their apartment in Stratford.
Are the dainty dishes Limoge- I have a bridal wreath dish pattern that looks very similar. They are very old and I love them. They once belonged to a friend's grandmother and I bought them from her many years ago now.
Have a great weekend.
Regards.
Anna
