The Good Days

Happy Pink Saturday to you,
Just in case you think the only thing I ever photograph is flowers, I thought I would share a couple of pink-finds from my antiquing with one of my baby-grands. 
She was such a sport, at 11 years old I was worried that she would humbug everything but we had a blast even though one of the dealers was rude and crude we got past it.I thought this lamp was wonderful though my DH will have to re-wire it and put a new harp on , it sure has potential don't you think? 
 Now it is always hard for me to resist a pair, must be my decorating training so these vases were a must but not a steal, when I buy for myself, I am sometimes willing to pay more when I know I love something.
 I told my grandgirl that she would be on the blog again and she sorta complained but I know she loves it so here we are at the lake in Maine visiting my folks.
 Before I say good-bye on this the last Saturday in July, I really must show you the aerial view of my garden from the bathroom window.
 I know many of you are at the end of your gardens but ours is producing like gang-busters, great year to garden up north.
Have yourself a wonderful weekend and if you want to see more pink, visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and just follow the pink. Blessings to you, Meg

Happy Pink Saturday Meg Sweetie...
Oh what a beautiful share. Love the lamp and that pair of vases, oh my, TDF. Just beautiful. Looks like you and the grand daughter scored BIG time.

Let her know I love seeing her on your blog. She is just precious. Have her come with you to my blog today, and meet my grand daughter. She willingly let me photograph her new hair do, as she starts Junior High on August 9th. She can't wait. Please stop on over and see.

I love your garden. I so wish water wasn't so costly out here, and I could have one in Phoenix. The soil is poor though, and it costs more for the water, than to just go and buy it.

Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend. Country hugs...Sherry

Meg, your pictures were wonderful! I recently got some finds at sales and am anxious to go pick one up this morning! Will post pictures when it's all in order. Your garden looks so much like mine, only cleaner and neater! Amazing! I too like to photograph my English garden from an upstairs bathroom window. It shows it to its best advantage. Blessings!

G'day Meg ~ Love the pics of you & kid-ling! The vases are gorgeous & I love the lamp.

Our gardens do NOT look as healthy/lush as yours ... this 'flip me over, I'm done on that side' heatwave for 6 weeks just about ruined everything.

Have a lovely PINK summer's weekend ~
TTFN ~ Hugs, Marydon
