Pink china and glass

This is my china cabinet which holds my collection of pink glass
It is getting extremely full and untidy.   Time for a sort out

Other collections keep finding their way in there too, like pink china and other little bits and pieces

Soooo, out came everything and it all got a good wash and polish

The French wine glasses went back in first,along with the matching liqueur glasses.

Depression cups and saucers

Bubble glass bowls and a favourite pair of crystal salt and pepper shakers

My treasured compote/stemmed fruit bowl and a little dish which was the first piece of pink glass I owned other than the French glasses. 

Candle holders,a gift from dear friends

 A bedside water set,which includes tray,lidded jug and glass

Now I think it is much nicer, what do you think?

 Art Deco vase and liqueur set

Water jug

Now to the pink patterned china

 I can't resist buying any of these English patterns in this colour way,when I see it.

They are mostly the Charles Dickens series, Churchill and Country Life, patterns

 I so like these Grindley set of jugs, which I use regularly 

Parties I am joining this week.

Giving encouragement to others is a most welcome gift,
for she results of it are lifted spirits,
 increased self-worth, and a hopeful future.

Wow--you really have a collection! I love all the pink glass. It is beautiful and so hard to find at thrift stores. It must be worth a lot!

What a wonderful collection of pink glassware. I love your collection of pink transferware, too. I have a china cabinet like yours and I need to clean it out and rearrange things in it. It used to be my Gramma's, so its very special to me. Thanks for sharing,

You have a wonderful cabinet filled to the brim with all of this gorgeous pink depression glass! I love it. I have a few pieces and just think this is one of the prettiest colors.
Be a sweetie,

Oh my! I love your collection of pink glassware! I have just become familiar with the French pink dishes - is yours Arcoroc? All your dishes look lovely displayed in the case! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,

What a perfect time to show off your beautiful collection! That pink glass is just stunning! Love your transferware too. It must feel great to have it all sparkling again. Mine is never all clean at once!

Oh Jeanetteann, your pink collection is absolutely gorgeous! You have alot more than I do girl. I collect more of the red glass, but love pulling out my pinks for Valentines and Spring. Your solid pink jugs are darn cute. I have not seen any like those before. I have a couple of those English plates with the scenes. I think that they are sweet. Your China cabinet looks all sparkly clean. Isn't that a good feeling?
