Pink Rooster Saturday

Time for Pink Saturday hosted by
Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound.

Le chef is here with a delicious
cupcake iced in creamy pink frosting.


Yesterday's Rooster Party at Bella Vista was a huge success. I'm still working my way through all the delightful parties. I never realized that there are so many different roosters out there. Hardly a duplicate in the bunch! Thanks, Barb, for hosting this hugely successful event. It was great fun!

A big thank you to each of you who visited and left a comment this week.

Pink Saturday is a day for posting something pink and in keeping with celebrating The Week of Roosters here at HFTS, here is my PINK Rooster.

Small French Faience Dish, Unsigned

Singing Heart

A Haiku for Lovers

by Hyacinth

With each new season

My love for you grows stronger~

My heart sings with joy.

August 2009

"Quand ce coq chantera, mon amour finira."

"When this rooster sings, my love will end."

The French saying is a declaration of undying love, since this particular rooster will NEVER sing!

This sweet sentiment is found on various items that one might give a friend or sweetheart. I also have several French faience snuffs in my collection with this quote. You can see them in the slideshow posted at the top of the sidebar. The haiku was written for my husband. Sunday we celebrate 34 years of marriage.

This little pink rooster is the finale of my week of roosters on parade. Another huge "Thank You!" to Barb for hosting yesterday's Rooster Party. It was definitely a party to crow about! An amazing 200+ participants.

Happy Pink Saturday to All!

Come back on Monday for a double post with both Metamorphosis Monday and Blue Monday.

Have a great weekend!


The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.


  1. Best wishes and congrats to you and your hubby on your anniversary, Sarah! Love your pink rooster plate and the saying in it....Christine

  2. Wow, I so enjoyed your week of roosters. I was also surprised that I haven't seen many duplicaitons through this whole party. I hope we get to see the rooster Christmas tree in a few months!

  3. I love the rooster plate, French! I like the way you combined the rooster party with Pink Saturday...the rooster party was fabulous...I'm still working on the list, and enjoying all the wonderful roosters and creative wit that each blogger adds to the fun!

  15. I enjoyed following along all week to see the Roosters. My favorite was the little salt and pepper photo displayed during your Julia post. I viewed this movie on Thursday and was so inspired that I came home and cooked myself silly:) I have been dieting all summer but threw the diet out the window and enjoyed the fruits of my labor...well the flour and butter and sugar I should say. Now to have taken a cooking lesson at the Greenbriar with Julia sounds like the icing on the cake!

  16. Happy Anniversary, Sarah! I'm loving the blog and your roosters. Susan

  17. I love all the roosters. Your blog is going to be great fun to follow.
