Pink Saturday


  1. Sounds and looks about right for a cold Winters Day, a lovely cup of tea, a good book and in the pink!! Enjoy, have a good weekend, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  2. Maggie,
    Read the book and it was very good. Love the Cath mug. She makes a cover for the iPhone that I might just have to have.

    Have a great weekend.


  3. I saw a student walking down the hall at school yesterday in a pink sweat shirt: "I love Pink" and pink is my color, but then I thought "I'm tired of pink, what new color could I adopt? Aqua, I thought. Somehow, aqua just doesn't do it, does it? What thoughts we have as we walk about. Nothing better than a cup of tea, a sweet, and good book to put us in the pink. Have a good week-end.

  4. I'm so glad you're in the pink! Wishing you a lovely day, walking in a sunbeam!

  5. Lucky you. Great gifts. LOve the pinks.
    Have a nice weekend

  6. Funny, my today's post called "Pink your home"...

  7. Pink is such a cheering colour in these gray winter days. Combined with a book and a cup of tea - what a perfect match!

    Bon weekend.

  8. Perfect little Pink Saturday post, Maggie. Absolutely lovely! ~ sarah

  9. Sounds like a book and a cup of tea is a great plan! We had snow flurries here this morning so a nice snuggle by the fire may be in order tonight. Have a nice weekend!

  10. Pink is a pretty color i like it. Happy weekend and mine is up.

  11. Here, at my neck 'o' the woods is raining and it's cold, not a winter in the USA cold, but 60 cold, anywhere and your pretty mug with tea is all I'd like to have right now...and yeah a great book too. Happy Pink Sat. and a terrific weekend for you.

  12. Mmmm Roobios tea. Have you tried Caramel? Delish! Love anything Cath Kidson. HPS!

  13. Certainly looks like the perfect interlude to me, and I'm sure having a Cath Kidston mug makes everything taste better, lol.

    Hugs and Happy Pink Saturday!

  14. Now that does look like the perfect pink interlude !

  15. Sounds like the right combination to me.

  16. I enjoyed that book. It made you think about the what should be told and what should be held back. ~ Maureen

  17. Your lovely photos of Pondside's gifts makes me feel this weekend might just be better staying in, snuggled up, sipping warmth, and enjoying a good read. Perfect.

    Have a lovely one dear.

  29. Hi Maggie,

    First of all, thanks so much for leaving comments on my blog. That certainly makes blogging extra special! :)

    Oh, that's a perfect post for Pink Saturday. How do you like the book? I am always up for recommendations! :)

    Are you interested in winning a white cotton T-shirt with a pink heart and the words I ♥ Oktoberfest in size L? Then come over to my blog until Sunday, 22nd January, and leave a comment here .

    What about having a look at my Advent and Christmas and getting an impression of Munich's Christmas market ? Moreover, you can see some frosty weather photos and pictures from a walk around my neighborhood on January 1st. Finally, there are photos of New Year's Eve . Of course, comments are welcome -- it's always great to hear what you think!

    Have a wonderful 2012,
    your blog friend from Munich, Germany,

  30. What a wonderful pink interlude! I have not read The Postmistress~ I almost downloaded the audio version several times to listen to since my TBR pile is overflowing & I enjoy listening to a book driving & walking the dogs. It got mixed reviews, did you enjoy it?

    SO glad you're joining FFT!! Looking forward to your review of The Night Circus :)

  31. I enjoyed the book and wish you a wonderful afternoon reading while enjoying your steaming cup of tea!

  32. Maggie- I really enjoyed reading The Postmistress. Love that pretty pink mug mat- its a lovely little vignette picture--
    Tea and a good book- perfect!

  33. I am having problems with your blog on my blog roll. Your blog is not alone (about a dozen others that I know of....) Just thought you would want to know! I hope I have the problem fixed. By the way, I enjoyed The Post Mistress! :D
