The Pink Palace

Come on in and sit a spell while I share a most delightful find.

~*~*~*~

Tate, Georgia is home of The Tate House a.k.a. Pink Palace. A real old Southern mansion constructed of very rare pink Etowah marble and solid granite blocks. The grounds have manicured pathways leading through Italian and English gardens with some lovely pink stone ladies. I would so love to stroll under the trees and visit each one. Would you come along?

Now I know our little Pink Saturday lady is feeling right at home
with these gals. So follow her back to Beverly's garden
to continue the parade of pink.



Hope you enjoyed our garden stroll and for more SIGHTSEEING tours please visit Christine's Home and Travels. I leave you with soft pink pedals that say, thanks for stopping by and as you leave take blessings for a refreshing day.

L♥ve your pink goodies this week. Just when I think I have enough pink in my life I participate in Pink Saturday and see even more sweet things I’d enjoy having in my home or flowers for my gardens or just to look at☺ What could be better than the color pink dancing in your head all morning?

Thanks so much for sharing. Hoping your weekend is filled with sunshine and the comfort of those you love and who love you.

Sweet Candy!

How are you? I've been such a poor blogging buddy for the past few weeks, but my little guy's back in school now, so maybe things can calm down a little bit.

It's in my plan to go to Savannah in the spring...I wonder how far away Tate is from there? I'd LOVE to see this wonderful place. PINK? Oh how yummy!

Thanks for the grandma wishes. It's the most fun I've ever had. He's sure interesting.

Are you the cutie holding the three dollies? That is ADORABLE.

Hugs dear gal!

I'm still visiting around for PS. The blessing in this is to see all the other posts of the week. Too many pretty things to comment on individually, but I am so drawn to the natural whites and linesn. See you for PS soon.
