A Spot of Tea For Pink Saturday

It's been awhile since I've participated in Pink Saturday. It feels wonderful to be back. Each week Beverly from How Sweet the Sound is gracious enough to host this wonderful event for us. You can click here for a full list of those participating. You are definitely in for a treat. A full day of wonderful Pink. I thought I would share with you a much earlier post. I hope for those that have seen it before enjoy it again, as well as those first time viewers. Many of you know I love lamps. Lamps of any kind. I have a true weakness for them, however they must be unique and speak to my heart. Then they get to come home with me. lol.


This sweet tulip lamp I've had for many many years. I purchased it through one of the companies I was buying from at the time for the shop. They've since been discontinued. ;-( The graceful tulip shade seems to play a special tune each and every time I turn it on. OK.. so it doesn't actually play music, but it puts a smile on my face like some of my favorite music does.. lol I think the toile in the drapes are the perfect back drop for this dainty lamp.
I always try to use a part of my tea cup collection while decorating whenever possible. The bright pink at the top of the delicate cup matches the tulip lamp perfectly.
Every tea cup needs it's own saucer. :-))
It's rained off and on here for 2 days and the temperatures have dropped. We have a crisp 41 degrees. Perfect for curling up with a good decorating book and a spot of tea.
I hope you enjoyed my little contribution to Pink Saturday as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you. Stayed tuned, updates are coming soon of the toile room. I have a couple more changes to make before the "full" reveal is revealed. As always, Beverly, thank you for hosting Pink Saturday each week.

The lamp & cup/saucer are perfect together. I've always loved lamps, too, but I buy very few. Not only do they need to speak to me, they have to be a bargain, too. That's asking a lot! Hope your weekend is enjoyable. Sally
