It’s Pink Saturday again at Cottage Dreamer! Thanks to Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for once more hosting this fun day of sharing all things Pink!
One of my favorite places to go hunting for “deals” is Home Goods. We have a new store in town and it’s become one of my “must stop by” places for Saturday morning shopping. The other day I found an adorable teapot, creamer, and sugar bowl that I thought would be perfect to take the place of the Easter Bunny and wreath as my kitchen table centerpiece. And I was even happier with my purchase when I found the exact same set in an ad in Tea Time – for close to twice what I spent. Oh, and the name of the pattern in Vintage Rose – not real original – but very descriptive.
Home Goods didn’t have the tray that is shown in the above features, but it is available online – though it does cost more than I paid for the whole set.
And then I found a set of four cups and saucers. It does seem a shame not to finish off the set, right?
And then look what I found online! A tired pastry stand.
So my “bargain” may just have changed into a rather expensive collection. Though I think I’ll probably just get the tea tray. Or maybe on my trip to Home Goods today I can find a plain white tray and then put a pink print napkin or something on it. Or how about a pink cake stand with this tea set on it?
Enjoy your Pink Saturday!
