In the Pink!

Hello everyone,
       I am in the pink here today and I know I have been showing a lot of tea cups lately but it is January and a little harder for me to come up with inspiration -it is so much easier when the garden is in full bloom.
I used my new 50mm lens for all of these shots.
I do have a thing for soft and romantic shots-so I like this one taken at f/2 so it has a short depth of field.
A peachy pink rose from the grocery store.It is my weekly treat to pick up a few flowers during the off season from the garden.

I did make a fresh batch of biscuits today to go with our tea.

I hope you are' in the pink' too!

I am joining How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday today.

Have a happy weekend.

Carolyn, this post the the aqua blue one are so pretty. You're taking some great indoor photos with your new lens! It's difficult to find subject matter some days isn't it? We're getting freezing rain here right now - a little bit of everything today. I hope you have a great weekend. Pamela

Oh, Carolyn, I'm definitely in the pink looking at your post. And pink, of course, is my absolutely FAVORITE color of all! I love pink and loved your post today. Susan

Dear Carolyn,

NEVER apologize for showing "too many teacups!" Heavens, is there even such a thing?????

What a beautiful post. You take such heavenly pictures.

Dearest Carolyn,

Sorry, I am not as you in the pink but in the yellow with fresh Sweetness daffodils from our garden. Crazy to have flowers in January; maybe a making good for the scorching heat and drought in July/August?
Your pink photos are lovely! You have a natural knack for putting flowers and pretty china with lace together! Tough in winter time but also that time will pass!
How is your grandson doing; thinking about him and wondering how things developed...
All the best to you and your family with love from Georgia,

I love your pink teapot, Carolyn! That rose looks so pretty. Such a great idea to pick up some flowers during the Winter months. I'll have to see what they have when I go food shopping. It's been so cloudy and rainy here for so many days, I could use a bit of a perk up!

You're so right about the January inspiration! Your little gathered tea is just that though, inspiring!

Rettabug said...

Lovely, romantic post, Carolyn. I always wondered how you got those beautiful soft looking photos. Thanks for explaining.

I'm especially enjoying your music this morning. I have the CD that contains "An Irish Blessing"...just beautiful! I think I'll go put it on right now.

Thanks for the delightful interlude today.

Another pretty post Carolyn! Wish you a happy weekend. Winter will arrive in Holland at last. Next week we will get temperatures below zero, but no snow :-(

Lieve groet,

Hi Carolyn
Such a pretty pink hue to this post. I can't get over how flaky that scone looks - wow. Isn't it funny how we can focus on a particular thing in a post?

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Another pretty post, Carolyn! Love the pink hues and your scone looks lovely. Hope you're having a nice weekend. Happy Pink Saturday.

gorgeous as usual. :) I'm trying to learn my new 50 mm lens also, so it was fun for your pictures and little comments about it.

Donna D said...

Just beautiful! Those scones look so yummy - would you mind sharing your recipe?


Donna D said...

Ooops, silly me! Sorry!

What i do not realize is actually how you are not really much more neatly-favored than you may be right now. You're so intelligent. You know thus considerably with regards to this subject, produced me for my part imagine it from a lot of varied angles. Its like women and men don't seem to be interested unless it is one thing to do with Woman gaga! Your own stuffs excellent. At all times take care of it up!
