Lovely Pink Saturday

We were at my Mother in Love's house...she is wonderful. When I married my hubby I had no idea that the Mother in Love I would get would be such an amazing woman. She is just wonderful. So over the years (almost 30) I would cross stitch or quilt her gifts. This one is very old, of an Indian woman at a rug loom...
This one I loved doing, the background is pink. My hubby's mother loves pink. And her mother is the one who handpainted all the china I have posted about over the last few months.
My hubby's grandmother handpainted all this china, the lamps everything. She was feisty and an amazing china painter. So I have been blessed with several items as well.



this pitcher is my favorite and matches my china....
the inside of the large vase...


Thank you so much for your visit.
Have a blessed day.

One day of the week I can count on for self-indulgence, Beverly's Pink Saturday. My l♥ve for the color is fed over and over and over by the generosity of everyone who participates. This week is no exception.

Thank you for sharing such great eye-candy. It was an absolute pleasure to visit your blog. Hoping this weekend finds you surrounded by l♥ve and happiness.
