Perfectly Pink What? (A Rhyme)

Hosted by "How Sweet The Sound"

Thank you Beverly for hosting! I can't wait to see what other pinks are out there!

For over a year now, I've wondered about a pattern. A name that escaped me like entering a dark room without a flashlight or a lantern.

I've questioned and questioned, but alas my thoughts were just stationed. I'm afraid even "Brain" went into a state of utter confusion. Follow along as I tell you a story that may help you help me be merry if you have, than me, a better memory... (NONE but the last image is mine)

In all of my searching in Replacements, Ltd. I turned up none, until my tired state lent me no fun. Instead, it lead me to a trail; which lead to the town of Corelle.

In CORELLE, I was lead to a "Meadow" of flowers so pink...

That is pretty much, "Pretty Pink"!

But alas, still my search was fruitless. I was forced to trek it rough, to a place called PFALTZGRAFF. I told them my story, but all they could do was look again at my inventory. Confusion lead to sadness followed by light sobbing. For my tears, nothing but petals of a "Silk Rose" to see if soon, I'll be cheering.

I again headed out on my way to find what I'm looking for; in my endless wanderings to find out what the pattern is named for, the domain of TARGET and its band of "thinkers of pink platters" lead me back to my own "Discovery" that bore...

A simple truth. Despite all the twists and turns of my searching that resembled a "Scroll", this desperate sleuth...

Quickly realized that though all these modern dishes are pretty and "Pretty In Pink" ...

None can compare to my very own perfectly pink NORITAKE ??? No more rhyme you see. Hence my dilemma, the tracks ran cold. I'm tired, I'm dismayed... I beg you, "Do you know what she's called?"

TABLESCAPING IDEA: (I'm not normally an "all pink" girl, but I am even in love with this idea! "Brain is loving me right now!) HAVE A FUN pink plate day and mix and match all of your pink dinnerware. Make your whole table pink and use silver as bling and silver candleholders to show off your pink candles! Make pink frosted cakes and finger foods and have a pink bouquet! It's a fun table that all the aspiring princess in us will love!

Happy Pink Saturday everybody!!!

I'm serious though, do you know the name of this pattern? My set is buried in the storage and I just have to know! It's driving me batty!!!

    Happy Pink Saturday and good luck!!


  15. These are all pretty. I love pretty plates especially when they have pink in them.
    Happy Pink Saturday.

  16. Oh ladies! I hope someone can help out soon! I miss it!

  17. Such pretty pink china!
    Have a wonderful weekend,

  18. Such lovely pink dishes, sorry I do not know the name of that pattern.
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  19. Hi Chandy, Your post was so much fun to read and
    view. I too love dishes. I do not know the pattern On your beautiful plate. I wish I did. It is lovely. I find LTD to be very expensive. I did replace a few dishes I broke though for a whopping $500.00. I bought these dishes when I was 18 and had no idea how lovely they are until I was much older. At that time they were called Springtime by Hanover China. Hanover is now a different china company and I can't remember who it is. See we are all capable of brain freeze. LOL


  20. It reminds me of that apple patterned one. I do not however know the name.

    Happy Pink Saturday

  21. Thanks ladies, but it is not the Franciscan Desert Rose or the Apple dinnerware. I looked, I saw both patterns at Marshall's but mine is Noritake. It also comes in blue flowers with the same style of brush strokes...

  22. Hi Chandy,
    I think I might have a person who might be able to tell you the pattern. I'll call her tonight and direct her to your blog.

  25. You're amazing, Dear ONe! Oh, how clever you are. Love all the pinkness and I wish I could help you with the name of that pattern, but I can't. Very lovely, though.
    Happy Pinkness,
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

  26. Judy: I do,too!

    Shelia: You're so sweet to notice. I loved all the pinkness too when I was done posting.

  27. What beautiful dishes. Happy Pink Saturday.



  28. Sorry but I too don't know the name. One thing I can say though, that's one pretty plate you have.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  29. Your plate is beautiful. Are you sure it is Noritake? It doesn't have the traditional look of Noritake and that may be the reason you can't find it. I hope you find the name and let us know. I'd love to have a piece of it for my collection!
    ♥Happy Pink Saturday♥

  30. Irma: Thank you!

    My Thoughts: I know; I just love it!

    Sew Pretty: Yes, it is Noritake. I got the set at Costco back in 1997. I just wish I can remember or find the box. It came in a gray box with a sticker to the picture of the pattern on the plates.

  31. Thanks for stopping by and saying hello. Lovely dishes...but I am NOT looking too closely...I just can't bring another plate into this house!

  32. happy pink saturday! pretty pink dishes..
