Falling for Pink

About this time of year the leaves start to change... and I start to cringe. I'm not a typical lover of fall. Why? Well, it means winter is coming and I'm defnitely not into cold weather. Bah-hum bug!




But this year I've decided to embrace fall... we've been enjoying pumpkin hunts, molasses cookies, butternut squash soup, the foliage. All kinds of fun things!




After all, it is so beautiful!






So today I'm sharing one of my latest finds with you. This pretty teacup and saucer is vibrant with a deeper pink and a little bit of fall coloring.




Have a super PINK Saturday be sure to stop on by to visit the pink party that goes on every week at How Sweet the Sound

Hi Jillian,
I'm not a Fall person either but I'm trying to accept it too. Your photo of the yard is beautiful but I adore your teacup! That is a very pretty shaped teacup in the
Old Country Roses pattern? Thanks for sharing and Happy Pink Saturday weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

I do not mind the fall as much as I do winter. I cannot handle the cold. Love your little tea cup and saucer.

I had to pop over to see how you could fall further for pink! I now see the pun on "fall"! Happy autumn to you too!

What a gorgeous view you haven, Jillian!!! Our trees are just turning yellows and/or browns and the leaves are dropping....not a lot of pretty reds and oranges this year...not enough rain during the summer.

I can't believe YOU don't know about bittersweet!! It's a berry that grows on a vine. When it's picked, it soon "pops" open to look like a little flower. They are awesome entwined in fall decor. I just filled a huge old grapevine wreath with them and will put it out after HWEen...for Thanksgiving.

If you google bittersweet berries images you'll see lots of great photos.

I know you and Bebe are having great fall experiences!!

HPS!! L, Dana

Hi Jillian,

I lived on the coast for so long that I was really "over" the intense heat and humidity. Here in the mountains we have heat but the humidity stays down. I do love Fall and Winter. I know there must be something wrong with me. {giggles}
Your teacup find is beautiful.

Have a wonderful Sparkly day,
Stephanie ♥

You and me both kid...I am not a fall person. But this year, with all the fuss about fall in blogland, I am really getting in the mood. I usually by pass it and go straight to Winter and pray that Spring comes real soon. Your teacup really makes fall worth while. It is just beautiful.
