pink roses and old lace

It's Pink Saturday at Beverly's blog
"How Sweet the Sound".

I picked a wild pink rose this morning and as I chose a tiny
pitcher to put it in I thought I'd take a few pictures of my
sweet little china cups with pink flowers on them.

This tiny bisque doll is about 3 inches tall and I keep her in
this tiny cup so she won't get lost or broken.
She has beautiful blue eyes, rosey red lips and very pink
cheeks.  And no hair!  Poor Dolly.

As you can see Dolly is wearing a vintage lace dress.
She has posable arms too.

Dolly has the number 250 on her back.
I wonder where she was made and how old she is.
I am guessing she might be 100 by now.

Underneath these cups is a dresser scarf.
It is cotton and has embroidered pink roses on each end.
I use it on my dining room table right now.

This little cup is marked "Welmar"and "Germany".
It has different pink flowers around it and some embossing.
Very dainty and pretty.

This cup has no markings on the bottom.
I like it's sweet handle and pretty hand painted rosebud.

I have a beautiful bouquet of  soft pink Alstroemaria
on the table too.

I gave myself a fresh manicure with this pretty barely there
pink polish called "Mademoiselle".
I think it works with the pink theme for today don't you?

Wishing you a happy Pink Saturday.
