Pretty Pink Day

Most people think of pink as the color of femininity (a soft pretty color), but make it hot pink and it becomes a little aggressive and sensual. I don't give too much thought to what pink means , I just enjoy it.

This Hall teapot has an unusual shape and a gorgeous deep rose color. I like the little gold roses motif.

This pretty pink and white Arthur Wood teapot is very special to me. It belonged to my mother when she was a young bride and was a gift from her sister.

This is an old McCormick pot (made in the USA) which has a pleasing shape and a removable steeping basket.
This delicate botanical style cup with a very pale pink background is a favorite of mine. It was made by Royal Grafton in England.

Here is a stack of cups that all have lovely pink roses. The Table Settings book is by Victoria. I enjoy all their books, whether about tea, table settings, hats or travel, they are exceptional.

More pink pattern cups on a wall rack.

It would be nice to have a history on this glass cup style vase. The little pink floral teapot clock was a gift from a friend who knows my love for anything tea.

There is an article titled Tickled Pink Tea Table in the July/August 2009 Tea Time magazine. It is short, but sweet and such beautiful photos of the tea ware and glasses, floral arrangements, place tags, favors, etc.

Oh, now of course I knew I was going to love your pink-filled post today, but your mother's teapot ... how beautiful! And that Hall teapot, wow, what an unusual shape! And you know what? I wonder if your unusual shaped vase is actually a spooner? The top sure seems to be like those I've seen before!
