Tickled Pink!

I'm quite sure that a lurid pink cake stand might not be considered the best possible taste but I couldn't resist it... especially at the princely sum of £1.60. And I was rather hoping it was so awful it might be considered kitsch.

But frankly, I don't care because where else could I sit my lurid pink cupcakes?


And I feel tickled pink every time I look at it!

  1. I don't think it's awful at all! Cath Kidston sells those for a fortune at a time!

    I proudly brought home my latest charity shop find - a little rose printed china tray for my makeup in the bathroom and Rupert laughed at it and siad it was granny-ish. I took great pleasure in telling him I was completely on trend and he should just be grateful I'd paid £2.50 instead of £20!

  2. Tacky??? Whatever do you mean, I've got one in my lounge with my felt chocolates on. And every thing I do is in the best possible taste!
    Let 'lurid' be your watchword!

  15. Ah - ha! Its a Paperchase cake stand & very delightful it is too. Mind you, I am biased as I have two of them... I even used them as temporary Christmas decorations this year, with big fat pillar candles on them....

    Fallen in here from Judes - Its very nice too meet you.

    Love Lydia xx

  24. I think it's perfect!!! And would have snapped it up too...

    I have 6 old glass cake stands (but none of them coloured glass!!!) and I never leave one behind if I see them in a shop

  25. Technicolour brilliance! I would have as many cake stands in as many hues as possible, given limitless storage space and cash. There is no such thing as a 'too' anything cake stand in my book. Larger than life is sort of the point!

  26. Nope. It's not tacky. It's absolutely BRILLIANT! I love it! Lucy xxx

  29. Mmmm...didn't I read somewhere about some pink tights too? I like the idea of dressing to tone with your cake stand!
