Pretty Pink Plus More Recovery Updates

I’ve had these pics uploaded and ready to post for awhile…as a matter of fact, I have a totally different table up now. My week has been busy with medical stuff, so I’ve not had time to post.

Are you tired of my recovery updates? Well, believe me, I am, too! I had my checkup after  6 weeks of therapy this week. The doctor was pleased with my progress and wants me to continue for another month. Although I can do a lot more than I could a few weeks ago, there are still some things that I cannot do. He wants me to be able to put my hand completely around to the middle of the back. I hope another month of therapy will get me there!

I also had my regular colonoscopy this week. As a colon cancer survivor, it is important for me to have these done regularly, and I am embarrassed to say that I had put it off. Anyway, it is done now, and I am back on schedule.When I told the doc that my therapist had said to be careful shifting me because I am recovering from rotator surgery, he assured me that he had not yet had an orthopedic injury during a colonoscopy. This was a new doc for me, and I liked the humor, plus he was familiar with my chart and explained things well. I know that may sound like a no-brainer, but I’ve had some recent bad experiences with medical personnel who obviously had not read my chart even when it was right in front of them. Anyway, my results were good, back in 3 years, and I was glad to have that done.

My last medical update is actually not on me, but my husband. He has been suffering with an abscessed tooth for a couple of weeks and finally was able to have a root canal a few days ago. His dentist said that the infection around the tooth was probably the worst he had ever seen. One little fact that I need to mention is that about 2-3 weeks before the abscess, he had his first cavity ever. He will be 57 next month, by the way. What a way to begin having dental problems…wasn’t he the lucky one (insert sarcasm here)?


So we are checked up and checked out, and I have used one of my favorite colors in my tablescape today. I started with my pink table linens and added these Homer Laughlin Sunrise plates.


For the next layer, I chose my small Haviland Limoges plates. I love the way these two look together.


I decided to use the berry bowls and small plates in this setting also.


I used my beaded napkin rings and Chateau stainless for the place setting. I love these napkin rings, and you see them a lot on my tables.


Of course, you knew you were going to see my pink tulip-shaped goblets, didn’t you?


For the centerpiece, I chose the matching platter, a recent eBay purchase (before medical bills, in case you are wondering about my vow not to spend until medical bills are paid).


One of my vintage Hull pieces in pink seemed the perfect choice to add to the centerpiece.


I used my vintage Fenton Silvercrest and added some sparkly stones around to give the table a little glitz.


It is hot here, and pink seemed a much better choice than fall colors for this table.

However, we’ve had a cold front this week, with highs only in the high 80s. Therefore, I guess I will be jumping on the fall colors bandwagon sometime this week and hope to show them off in the next tablescape!


Until then, enjoy my pink and keep cool!

    So happy you are feeling better, whatever with teeth is somehow the worst for me!
    Your tablescape is gorgeous, I love the pink dishes, and the pink tulip goblets are lovely. I adore pink dishes for a table and for all seasons.
    Thanks for dropping by my friend.
    Have a good week ahead.

    I definitely enjoyed your pink!I haven’t done any fall decorating yet. It’s still hot here in Florida. I didn’t realize you are a coon cancer survivor. I’m glad you went for your colonoscopy and everything is good. Have a beautiful week…:)

    Blessings, Vicky

    I am happy to hear that you are doing well and that the doctor is pleased with your progress. Good health is everything! Of course a pretty pink tablescape like yours makes life sweeter too.

    Big Texas Hugs,
    Susan and Bentley

  5. The Hull pottery pieces always amaze me with the way that they keep themselves current from generation to generation. The pink dinner plates are so classic and beautiful. A good tablescape to celebrate good news on the medical front! Thanks for inviting us for a peek. Cherry Kay

    Seems like when it rains it pours. You certainly have had a good soaking. Trust things improve for both you soon. Your table setting is very pretty.

    Wishing you both good recoveries and wellness! I love that Limoges pattern—I have a cup and saucer in that pattern. I also saw a similar Limoges set in the Laura Ingalls Wilder museum last weekend in Mansfield, MO.

    HaPpY pInK sAtUrDaY!
