Pink here ~n~ there

I wonder if the Victorians really used this sweet hand painted porcelain pan to brush crumbs into after their meal? Such a lovely addition to a table. Beauty and function. Now, back in the day when I was teaching my kids how to clean up after dinner, they were looking for the fastest way to get done. The thought of using such a thing would have made no sense to them. Brushing the crumbs into that pan? then dump the crumbs in the trash, NO way, the best way was...brush the crumbs from the table to the floor. I guess the Victorian kids figured that out too that's why I have this hanging on my wall, it lost it's function and I get to enjoy it as a piece of art yeah!! I have it displayed with lots of pink, notice the color of my wall. Pink is one of my favorite colors. My second pink of the day is this pretty vase I found at a thrift store/antique store. It's Nippon it has some damage so, I didn't pay very much for it. I added the floral ring to hide the damaged area. It's in the "tea parlor"~~ living room looking proud and PINK. Thank you for your visit. Please stop at Beverly's she makes PINK Saturday fun! Say hi to all the PINK bloggers'.

There much prettiness in that pan to only serve as a collector of crumbs :-) Nope, this pan just belongs to your home, displayed for everyone to appreciate its beauty :-)

When I was visiting a friend in England, she pulled out the very same thing to clean the table, a brush and pan. Not as pretty as yours, but it did the trick. Happy Pink Saturday, Char
I post under the name someplace in thyme and not english cottage rose. I can't seem to find a way to change that.

I can really use a crumb tray, yours is so lovely along with the pretty vase. I love just about anything with roses on it, but I need to keep it to a minimum.

Enjoy your day-
