A special gift

Happy Pink Saturday to you!!

Yes, it's Saturday, the day to celebrate all things Pink and wonderful!

Thanks to Beverly for hosting this fun event each week!

I just love getting a surprise present, don't you? My friend, Carolyn, gave me this lovely gift...."just because".

We work together on a newsletter for our ladies group, and she does the fabulous photography for it, which is a lot of work, and I do the articles and layout. She said she just wanted to thank me for the work that I do. Well, she does a lot of work too!! I was just giddy with excitement at this beautifully wrapped gift, I couldn't wait to open it!

Isn't it pretty?'s PINK, how perfect to share it with you on this PINK day! The cup has a square bottom, that I just love.

And the saucer is square to match.

Here is the side view, showing the wonderful shape of this dish.

The most special part of all is the thought of course. You see, Carolyn has been to my house. So she has seen all of my teapots and teacups. This gift says "I know you", and that is the best kind.

Hmmmm. My turn, don't you think? Yes, she deserves a gift too!
I have a few ideas...we shall see...I'll keep you posted!

If you enjoyed my PINK, head on over to Beverly's and browse all the PINK your heart desires:



  1. That has got to be the prettiest cup and saucer that I have ever seen. I just adore square plates and cups. I have been on a buying spree for my kitchen the past month and just bought all square dishes, serving pieces and them

  2. That is a mighty nice surprise present, and the presentation was so special! Just love it all! Thanks for sharing with us. Here's hoping you have a...
