Pink Memories

Welcome to Pink Saturday! This is a celebration of all things pink!! Our Host is Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. You can find oodles of pink on her blog, check it out!



Way back in 1994, I earned a trip to Hong Kong for myself and my husband with my company. And, what a trip it was! The very first thing waiting for us in our hotel room was this basket:

And, next to it was a plate of cookies. We had been on a very long flight and this was a welcome sight for us.


When we opened the basket it had a steaming hot pot of tea and little teacups. Mmmm.


I was so in love with this pretty little teapot and teacups.


Imagine my delight when they gave the set to us as a gift to take home!


I even bought some matching bowls and spoons.


Every time I look at it, I am reminded of a wonderful trip of a lifetime. Isn't it special how a keepsake can take you back in time?

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
