PINK SATURDAY ~ IT'S MAJOLICA TIME!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Thank you so much to our fabulous Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for hosting!

If you haven't already, do wander over to Beverly's blog and say hello. Get comfy and enjoy all the fabulous pinks the other wonderful and clever participants have posted.

For my pink contribution I thought I'd show my pretty pink Bordallo Pinheiro plates and bowls. But first, I have a confession....since I've already packed them up and put them away till next spring....I am posting the photos from last spring.

First we begin with a set of my salad plates....

I had four of these, now I have three *sniffle*

My darling little bunny plates. Haven't used them yet (see the made in portugal stickers on them ha!)

I love the detail on them, see the cute turnips and carrots...too adorable! lol

Here's the cute little bunny wabbit....

I have the pink cabbage cake pedestal which has doubled as a vegie w/dip server (I use a pink cabbage berry bowl for the dip. Cute...yes?

Now these bowls are my favs...they are serving bowls and I love the detail on them...

love the pretty flowers and lattice detail

and the dotted and swirl detail of the underside...

Some of you may recognize these and the cabbage plates from my summer tablescape I posted....

This photo is my right side bar link to the post...

As promised in my last post, here is the link to my ebay listings, pop over and tell me what you think of my header that I created for my listing.

Now I'm off to see what the other fabulous participants have posted for
Beverly's Pink Saturday! Everyone is always welcome! Do join us, won't you!?

Hugs & kisses!

Hi Tina and Thanks for stopping to visit my blog. What glorious and fantastic beauties you present here for us. I signed up to follow as I will have to keep a close watch on you! Looking at all your beautiful dishes can just take me away to a place far, far from TV trays, paper plates and plastic bowls! (which is what it came down to when our nest became comprised of just the two of us!!!).

Oh Tina these are so beautiful! I was thinking how lovely these would be for Christmas with silver mecury balls and tinsel. You must have alot of dishes to have to pack yours away!
I am sure the one plate that broke was put to good use in one of your beautiful creations!!

Thank you for sharing your pretty dishes with us this weekend!

I am looking at the snow coming down once again! THis is the 3rd snow since Mid Sept. I think I may get tired of it soon!
