Pink Saturday AND Happy Halloween

Today was a very special day for me. Many AZ bloggers got together for lunch at Gooseberries Tea Room and I was included. This wonderful group of women have participated in a get together luncheon in the past, but this was my first. I met so many warm and friendly faces, and now I can't wait to look up their blogs. I will be adding them to my sidebar and you are invited to visit each and everyone of them. I want to thank Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for making this pinkie day possible for all of us.
The above teacups are from the teahouse. I have never seen a china teaspoon and thought this was so pretty. It matches the cup and saucer. Did you notice the little salt and pepper shakers? So sweet.

Another cup and saucer in blues and greens with a touch of that special color pink!!

Look! A Mini Mouse Angel!! Could Jenna be any cutier?? We were all surprised that she kept her little ears on!

Allie is a pink Cowgirl and a cutie potootie. Please don't grow up too fast.

Being a grand mother is the best title EVER! I love it more than I can ever say. Sweet sisters ready for a special night of BOOS and SCARY WITCHES!! (and of course, the sweets too)
I hope all of you have a wonderful Pink Saturday and a Happy Halloween.

Hi Char,Happy Pink Saturday. Love your pretty post this week, your granddaughters are adorable. How sweet in their costumes. Teacups are beautiful and I've never seen a china teaspoon either. I'll be sure to check your sidebar for some cute tea blogs. I have not made that candy corn quilt yet but I'll try and find my pattern and post a pic of it for you. A little girl in my classroom today was a candycorn witch. It was the cutest costume I've ever seen. Colors were beautiful!
Have a great weekend!
Blessings, Shirl

Hello, sweet friend,
I am so glad you were able to meet up with other Arizona bloggers. I know you had a wonderful time visiting with each other. All of your rose covered china pieces are so pretty. I absolutely love the china teaspoon! Jenna and Allie are adorable in their little costumes. I have an Ally, too. Grandchildren are such a blessing. Happy Halloween! Vicki

Happy Halloween sweetie. Country love and hugs, Sherry

Queen of Dreamsz said...


Happy PiNk Saturday and Halloween! How fun that must have been to attend the tea with so many new faces....and the fact that they have blogs just puts icing on the teacake..hehe

Your two granddaughters are just adorable!!! I know they will acquire a lot of treats....dare anyone play a trick on them! :0)

Thanks so much for stopping by..I always love reading your kind comments. And yes, all of the artisans in the Smokies is part of the reason we wanted to retire here plus the fact that Tennessee is my home state. I look forward to meeting some of them once I get my studio in motion again.

I'm glad to finally quit traveling. I'm content to stay right here in my mountains. :0)

Scatter Bliss,

Hi Char!

First off your granddaughters are major cuties!!

Love your teacups! I have seen the teaspoons but, rarely!

Have a great day!

Tricia said...

What beautiful teacups and lucky you to get to meet with some fellow bloggers for tea. But more importantly, even than that, is the opportunity to be a grandma. I'm looking forward to that someday - though not there yet. I really enjoyed looking at your blog today. Thanks for stopping by my blog, too.

Hope you had a wonderful Pink Halloween Saturday!


sherri@lavenderfields said...

Hello Charlotte,

Aaawwwww those little girls are so cute in their costume. It must have been all treats in the house and no tricks :-) They are precious and I can see why you love being a grandma.

The tea set is is pretty. SO dainty too, right to the very spoon you used. It makes you real extra special using the spoon (or I think I feel like it) LOL They remind me of Celeste's handpainted spoons. And then you get to meet new friends (now that is one highlight to the party)


(Love the candy corn fields! How I wish I could visit such a place!)

Elizabeth said...

I've never seen a china spoon, either. Your granddaughters are so cute!

melissa said...

Awwww...your granddaughters are just precious in their pink costumes!
Pretty tea cups too!

Dru said...

Ohhhhh, sounds like such a wonderful time! Everything is just lovely, and the teaspoon is so pretty - I don't think I've seen one before either. Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and saying Hi. My husband and I had some out of town business to attend to yesterday,so I'm playing a little bit of catch up today. Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Jenny S said...

What a great pink post! I had never seen china spoons either. Very neat! Happy Halloween Grandma!! hehehe!

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

So cute. I bet it is the best "job" being grandma to those girls.

Saw your pumpkin dishes. What a great mom! And, what a lucky "find".

I'm redecorating and cleaning out and moving furniture around for the holidays. I bet I find lots, too.

Happy Pink Saturday, my lucky to meet area bloggers in such a wonderful tea room friend!

Dogmom Diva said...

How FUN to get to meet other bloggers in your area! And I loved, loved, loved that little china teaspoon. Have never seen such a treasure but you can be sure my eyes will be peeled for one in the future!

Belated PS greetings...the weekend went crazy and I'm still making my rounds.
