Pretty Pinks For Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday!!!
This post is going to be longer than my usual Pink Saturday post, but I have so many pretty things I want to share. Grab a cup of tea (or coffee, if you are so inclined) and enjoy!!

First, I can't resist showing you these two pretty pink fabrics I just found. They are gorgeous sheer fabrics with embroidered roses. Oh they are so pretty. I haven't decided what to do with them, though I think I have a great project idea in mind. The first one is the cotton candy pink roses on a sheer pale pink fabric. It is so cheerful and pink!!

The second fabric is much brighter. It is an ivory sheer with different tones of deep pink roses embroidered on. I love this one and hopefully I can show you a finished project in a week or so. I am thinking about adding them to my shop. I got them at such a great price, they would be nice to share.
We went for a visit to my mother in law's house. She had a gift waiting for me for no reason!!

There was a huge bag stuffed with treasures, These cute baking cups covered in pink hearts, 2 extra large cup muffin tins, a new pretty butter dish, some adorable kitchen towels with gingerbread men ready for Christmas.

A beautiful table cloth and set of matching linen napkins. (I know, not pink...but so cutie~pie...I love them)
Some pretty ivory lace curtains. So many pretty gifts.
Then when I got home, more treasures waiting in my mailbox.

These lovelies arrived from Tami at Pink Butter Creme. Oh my goodness am I a happy girl. They are so pretty and so prettily wrapped. And my birthday was last month. What a lovely day (it is the first day of my time off from work)
Just look at the beautiful teacup tie~ons above!! Ooohh La La!!

These little teapot cupcake picks are just adorable. I won't be home to bake tomorrow (I'll tell you why later in the post). But Sunday afternoon I will be making some fluffy pink cupcakes with these on top!!

Everything is so prettily painted and decorated. Lots of millinery flowers, and everything so prettily wrapped with ribbons and more millinery.

Tami even sent an extra special present for me...this cutie~pie magnet, which I promptly stuck right to the fridge. So pretty in my kitchen!!

After a long, nice day...I was feeling crafty so I made these tags. They are brighter than my normal colors, but I love the combination of the tangerine and the many shades of pinks. What a great color duo!! Plus I think the tangerine is a lovely color for autumn.
Tomorrow is a special day. The Guilford Fair is this weekend and we can't wait to go. Hubby had his stitches removed this morning and is feeling better so hopefully we will all have fun.
At last years fair I had the best corndog I ever have tasted. I have waited a full year for another one. I think I will have to get more than one. They are really that good. They hand~dip each one before frying them up. mmmmmm!! so yummy!! Plus they have racing piggies at the fair every year and little Alex has been practicing for the dart toss game.
Then on Sunday I am getting up at 5am to go Flea Marketing. There is a nice one called the Elephants Trunk every Sunday, but I've only been once and that was back in the spring. We'll probably stop for breakfast on the way. There are always lots of vendors, including some plants and flower growers. I hope there are some bargains to find!!

Now I am off to read as many Pink Saturday posts as I can!!

Oops, almost forgot. I have two new blogs for you to visit this week.
The first is Everyday Beauty seriously this blog has such pretty eye candy.

The second is Everything Vintage, which is just filled with lovely photos and so much fun stuff.

When the blossoms of summer begin to fade we can always count on Pink Saturday to bring a smile to our faces and to remind us that somewhere there are pastels and pretty things.

Thanks so much for sharing this week. I wish you sunshine and lollipops today and always.

Anyways just wanted to say hi and thanks for stopping by. I've been meaning to stop by...don't know where the time goes?
I love "your town" and when I have time will do a better post on it. Everybody loved the white church.

Hi, Rebecca,
I am still doing Pink Saturday because I wasn't able to visit as many as I wanted to yesterday. I enjoyed all of your pink pretties. That material is gorgeous! You have a sweet mother-in-law to present you so many lovely presents. I love the other creations, too. Have a wonderful week ahead! Vicki
