May is for Tea Parties, Strolls in the Park & Pink!

May is one of my favorite months. Dear Hubs and I were married this month, six years ago! (More on that in a future post...)


One of the best gifts I received was Dear Bebe. Here she is having a tea party! Her pink Fisher Price teapot is SO cute. All toys are electronic now so it sings and talks! (With a British accent, too.)

Last weekend we did some antiquing (when AREN'T we shopping for vintage stuff?) and the following pictures are some of what we found:

Absolutely loved this antique creamer/pitcher depicting children on both sides. This side is my favorite. Plus there are little hints of PINK!

Some Royal Crown china with pink roses....always a bonus.



A porcelain pin made in England.


This could just be any ordinary pin but the pastels make it pop!


Are they little pink cheeks I see in this antique framed print?



A very old shabby teacup with a foundation of pink.
The swirl effect makes it extra special!



Two old bisque dolls...is her dress....PINK? You decide!



A very unique pin cushion... a miniature sized French chair. Oui Oui!


(And yes, they are all for the online store....it is hard to part with some of them!)
We bid you adieu but ask you to check out a showcase of pinks on Beverly's blog How Sweet the Sound.

Both you and BEBE are adorable!
Now that creamer with the children on is absolutely stunning!
I don't think I ever saw anything like it!
The pin is so pretty with those beautiful pastels gemstones!
HPS!

I love May too!! I cannot believe how much Bebe's hair has grown! She is adorable but I think she gets more so every time you share her picture! :)
Happy Pink Saturday!

How do you keep Bebe occupied and out of trouble when antiquing? Just strategic use of the stroller?
