Happy Pink Saturday!


Greetings! Pink Rules!

This is my first event, and I'm excited to see what is special to all of you! I'm new to blogging and have a new etsy store, and I look forward to making new friends in both places!

This pink item is very dear to me. On a trip to London in 1986, I found this beautiful bone china Aynsley (Little Sweetheart pattern) "Strawberries and Cream" serving dish. Of course, I knew my sister and both my daughters would need one too, so we lugged four of them home with us. We have enjoyed them at many family parties/dinners/showers/etc. over the years. They look beautiful filled with strawberries; the little side bowl and pitcher hold cream and powdered sugar. So lovely, so British, and so delicious--makes me want to put it to use today!
Come see me at my etsy store (I am adding cards and pictures daily) at http://www.mysongwithin.etsy.com/
Have a lovely pink day!

Jayne

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Jayne.

I love Aynsley china, and this is a very pretty pattern. I love your strawberries and cream serving piece. And, I love strawberries and cream, too. ;-)

Have a great day.

What a lovely *pink* set! I've never seen anything like it. It sounds like it was definitely worth lugging all those sets home with you!

I haven't tried Pink Saturday - yet. I love the strawberries and cream serving piece. A table set with the beautiful dishes would make a festive occasion. I am going to visit your etsy shop. I read your profile and want you to know that a very good friend of mine is a retired Presbyterian minister although she is still the minister for Woodland Nursing Home. I enjoyed my visit.
