Pinking At The Cottage

Hi Girlies!

And, Happy Pink Saturday.....

Don'tcha just love peeking around at the lovely and delicious shade of pink?

It makes my heart sing.

Bidden or Unbidden
God is Always Present.

I LOVE that little phrase, don't you?

Ahhh.....My very favorite fake posies. Eddie Bauer had these many years ago. I bought them on clearance for a song. I'm crazy about them....even if they are fake!

Oh YES......more fake posies. I really love 'em. Chintz teapot orphan (she lost her lid, darn it all).

And, my souvenir from my trip to Kansas. Old Yellow Dog.

A frame made into a tray....with barkcloth under glass.

Yep, I know I've told you I'm Tightwad Tilly. You really don't think that's a REAL piece of barkcloth do you? Nahhhh.....It's a handy dandy photocopy. Hey, it works....don't laugh.

Cracking myself up here..........MORE fake posies? Ah, come on Spencer.

Oh Holy Moly....It's the REAL deal?

Even I am excited.

Now I just know you don't have your pink appetite satisfied with these puny little pix.

For lots more Pink FUN...

Go Here:

Now, go have yourself a wonderful weekend.

We're supposed to have sunshine here in the Pacific Northwest.

Now, THAT'S a BIG deal here chickies.

Huge huggies to all of you dear ones.

I am so pleased and thrilled that you chose to spend a bit of your Saturday with me.





  1. OMG I missed the previous post dearest! HOW ON EARTH DID I DO THAT? But this post is just fabulous and feminine and soft. Spencer, your fake flowers look wonderful, and the photos are super. The one with the little green plate....oh that is so darling. Every time I read your posts, I feel like you are talking directly to ME, and I so enjoy the tour you take us on. Thank you for this delightful pink moment, and please come by for a moment; I am celebrating my birthday along with two other WOWOOOWOWOW women.....I will save a slice of cake for ya'! Love, Anita

  2. Hi Spencer!
    Happy Pink Saturday!
    Love all the pretty pink posies around the house, real and faux!
    Enjoy your sunshiny day!
    Hugs, Mary

  3. You took care of that missing lid perfectly:)
    Beautiful pink can never have enough flowers methinks, real or not!
    have a great weekend Spencer!

  4. So pretty and I think nice silks get a bad wrap. I'd rather see them any day then old scraggly green plants that people refuse to part with no matter how ugly they are, or droopy real flowers that should have been thrown out three days earlier. So you go girl, they are pretty and eternal!

    Happy weekend!

    Huggies to you! B

  5. Hi...I so enjoy your site...and I love the music! The yellow dog caught my eye, (he would be one that I would buy, too) and then I was delighted to hear he was from Kansas, since so am I! Thanks for the post!
    Val from Kansas :-)

  6. Good morning Spencer,
    Love all your pinks; especially the tea pot with the posies in it. Sometimes it's hard to tell the faux posies from the real ones. Thanks for sharing yours and Happy Pink Saturday to you. Have a beautiful sunny weekend.


  7. I like your faux roses also, honey. Happy pink saturday.

  8. Morning, Spencer! Hallelujah for your sunshine! It's about time isn't it? I love your little vignette and yellow dog is tugging at my heart! Fake is good! and look at all the folks who think you're so cool because they think you have barkcloth! LOL I love that stuff.

    Spencer, I'm hosting my very first blog party on May 7th and I sure do hope you'll come. You can click on the little pink button on my side bar to find out about it. Hope to see you there.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  9. Love your pink Spencie! :) Doesn't it just soothe your soul?
