Happy Pink Saturday everyone!

This week I'm sharing my dainty pink patterned china, and the rest of the depression glass that you got a glimpse of last week. My mom gave my sister the depression glass, but I'm storing it for her right now. I'll be sad to see it go, but I'm sure I'll find another collection to replace it! There is a story behind the china that I'll save for a future post.
This china cabinet was given to me because the owner's son had shot one of the panes of glass with a BB gun. My inlaws replaced the glass for me, and if I had known how much it was going to cost I would've never let them do it. I could've used lace or something! However, it does hold these collections beautifully now.
The china set does not have a name or any marks. A few peices, such as the large platter and the little teapot (I *think*) are Limoge but they are not a perfect match. No, they are not the Haviland Apple Blossom pattern... I WISH! They might be cherry blossoms, but I haven't found anything about them yet. The large platter is what led me to find the other set of blossom china.
I love these etched glasses,
These were taken last Valentine's Day.
And this was taken at Easter time. The appliqued placemats were an eBay find. The are completely hand stiched and just amazing. I love the napkin pockets! Please click here to see the detail! The pink plastic *chargers* were a buck each at Tarjay...
I found the bunnies in a store next to Gary Dowd's restaurant. The beaded wreath was a Big Lots find, and the mirror came from a consignment shop.
