Happy Thanksgiving and Pink Saturday

Head on over to Beverly's How Sweet the Sound today and check out the other Pink Saturday posts.
This has been a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday weekend and I would like to share a couple of pictures of my newly decorated dining room. We had my dh's sister and her family along with his parents over for Thanksgiving and I got to show off our new room. Here are a few pictures.

I've had blue and white with white walls for a really long time. And now my dh has painted my dining room RED!  I decorated my hutch with my pink, white and red plates. It is so much fun changing colors. We even hung my very large mirror in there, which had belonged to my mother and I had never quite known what to do with it. I hope to post more pictures soon, but for now, enjoy Pink Saturday.

And one more pink I would like to share are a couple of pink combinations that will make their way into purses. This is my new venture into making purses from repurposed fabrics. I hope they turn out well and will post pics as they get completed.


As for my pick this week, I really enjoyed discovering Bellamere Cottage. Hop on over there for a visit. I'm sure you will enjoy what you find there. She likes to blog about home, family, decorating and homekeeping. Be sure to read "her story". It will inspire you!
I hope you all have a wonderful day today.

Oh my goodness.........thank you so much for the sweet words. How kind!

Doesn't your dining room look delish! In years gone by I would never have used red and pink together, but now that I'm allllll grown up ........I LOVE it. Isn't it a happy combination? I'd love to see the pix of your mother's mirror too. :)

Warmest blessings....and Happy belated Thanksgiving.

Hello Ms. Tricia,

Happy Pink Saturday! Your room is perfect and congratulations on your new look. A little change is always good for the mood and has a way of making us feel new in some way. I love your front window and the curtain treatment there.

Thank you so much for your visit. I got a chuckle out of the "it's not pink" comment. I new I wasn't going to get by without explaining myself. Thank you for sharing that. :)

Sending fairy magic and butterfly wishes for a perfectly sparkly day!

Cheers! =D

Hello Tricia,
Love your china! Funny how years ago they didn't put red and pink together so much. I love the combinations! What a wonderful room to have Christmas dinner in. Thanks for sharing and also for your lovely comments on my blog. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday weekend.

Thank you for visiting me and for your sweet comments.
I like your diningroom very much.
It seems so inviting. I especially love the pink trimmed platter in the center. How about some more pictures showing the mirror too.

Come over and see me often, I love having you.

Your dining room looks lovely in its new coat of red. Love a red room. We have a wainscoting in a deep burgundy in our dining room. Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Sarah
