Pink Saturday #3

It's Saturday, and you know what that means....Pink Saturday!


This weekly event is hosted by Bev at How Sweet the Sound.

A few years ago I bid on a box of porcelain items on eBay, and I won it for only $20. This box included a couple porcelain plates and other items. I just loved this little pink porcelain tray.


I wish I could read the small print on the label on the back, but it's Made in Japan, and from Royal something or other. I thought it was the prettiest thing.

I used to keep change in it, but it quickly became overwhelmed with all my coins. Now I keep it next to my bed on the nightstand and keep my earrings in there. It's great when I'm getting ready to go to work and have my favorites nearby, and even better at night when I lay down in bed and realize that I still have my earrings in! So easy to just take them off and drop them in the tray. Check out the little journey pendant. It was a surprise Christmas gift from Mr. "I haz wife, I be cheatin" from this post on my internet dating experiences.

Dot from Picket's Place gave me this award. If you have never been to her blog, you should definitely pay a visit! Dot is full of warmth and wisdom, and has the best stories to tell, and she just makes everyone in blogland feel as they are the most special person on earth. She is well loved and justifiably so. She took a short break from blogging not long ago, and people mourned as if she was gone for good! We're all so glad she is back and posting. A blog comment from Dot is something that always brightens our day!



Have a great weekend!

Happy Pink Saturday, Kady.

Your pink tray is so pretty, and I believe you have found the perfect way to use it. I can't stand to sleep in my earrings, either.

That's a very pretty tray.

I read your tribute to you dad - so very sweet! My daddy died when I was 55 and he always carried a photo of me when I was 16. We were both fortunate to be Daddy's Little Girls.

Thank you for sharing your tribute to him. I just posted a little about my daddy yesterday.

I love your pink tray. Sorry you missed the Dr Gachet by van Gogh. at the D'orsay, I saw it there last year but that building is so impressive it is a wonder anyone notices the paintings haha. I did not see the Theo exhibition I would have loved that. lovely blog, Kathy.

I'm behind on the Pink Saturday posts. My grandsons are here and they keep me busy! I love your pink porcelain tray. Keeping it on the nightstand is a great idea. I tend to put jewelry on the dresser (where it does not belong) when I discover my earrings are still in or just because I'm standing there at the moment. Perhaps I need a tray too!

Margie said...

Beautiful *pink* tray! That's a great idea to keep your favorite earrings handy!
