Pink Saturday / May Day

Greetings from my garden home,
Today I have a short post for PS. My grands are having their first dance recital this weekend, so surely I will see lots of pink tomorrow.Did you ever buy something that was not your style at all but for some reason you had an attraction to it? That's how it was with this jardiniere / planter I am posting today.Most of the pottery that I collect is McCoy, green, or majolica and a bit more natural looking but for some reason this Capodimonte piece with its pink and yellow roses called my name and is now being displayed on my living room sideboard.
 I am not sure that it will stay here or not?  Maybe I will just keep it for awhile and then ebay or sell it at the shop. Anyway, I know I like it but is it just a bit too formal for my house? Well until I decide, I hope you like it.
Have yourself a wonderfully blessed weekend this the first one in May.Very truly yours, Meg PS To continue on the pink trail be sure to go to Bev's at How Sweet the Sound for many more pink Saturday posts.
