Linen Swings in on Pink Saturday

Welcome to another Pink Saturday. Once again hosted by our gracious Beverly over at
http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/myweblog.com Be sure to swing over by to see some luscious pinks.



While getting ready for this post, I was once again amazed at how much Pink I have around the house. This week I chose this beautiful plate. I purchased it many years ago at Hobby Lobby on the 80% isle. I remember that day oh so well. I found many treasures that day. This was just one of them. Isn't the workmanship incredible? How about a close up view. No need to adjust your computer or eyes. This is the actual plate. So linen like. Reminds me of a beautiful piece of fabric. Wouldn't it be fun to find the same fabric or a coordinate to make pillows out of? Or napkins? The list has endless possibilities.

Closer....

And closer yet..

And one last shot for you. I had to move the plate around several times to get a really good shot for you. Stay tuned, in a future post it's possible you'll find it in a different spot.. lol

I'm sure glad you swung by today. I always enjoy your visits and comments. Now , off we go to see the rest of the beautiful pinks over at Beverly's. Once again a big thank you to Beverly for hosting another beautiful Pink Saturday.... hugs ~lynne~

It really does look like fabric. I bet there is a very similar fabric out there to make pillows. Great idea! Have a wonderful weekend. Sally

I could swear it was linen! I got a few 66% off things at Hobby Lobby this week, but did not see 80% off. I hope they still do that! The colors in this plate have endless possibilities! Have a great Saturday!

I love this plate, Lynne! It does look like linen! You should print out your pics and keep them with you when you shop, you never know what you might find that goes well with it.

Nice Find! Happy PS!!

Honestly, I really would think it was linen if you didn't show the full view of the plate!! Lovely!

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

I am always amazed when something so pretty makes it to a discount table before being sold to a good home. You did find a treasure you lucky girl. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
