Happy Father's Day Pink Saturday

We're celebrating Father's Day on Pink Saturday and we've got lots of treats. 

This is one of my favorite pictures of my father and me. It was taken sometime around my first Father's Day in 1951. 

Happy Father's Day, Daddy. You are loved and remembered. 

But we need a sweet treat for Father's Day celebrations and I discovered this patisserie during my travels around New York City. What a delicious pretty-in-pink goodies at Payard. I resisted stopping in, but I know I won't be able to resist for long. There's a branch not too far from where I live and I have a feeling I will be dropping in soon. 

What a beautiful selection of treats.

I was also intrigued by the ice cream sandwiches. The cake is actually the beautiful macarons.

I am keeping the flash totebag giveaway open one more day. If you'd like a chance, just leave a comment about what you are currently reading -- commenting on this post is a-okay --  and be a citizen of Buttercupland. 

As always, thanks for stopping by. Wishes to all for a great Father's Day celebration.

I can't decide whose expression speaks the loudest ... your sheer delight, or your father's obvious pride. I can see why this is a favorite.

Payards ... wow! The macaron creation looks fun, but the white and gold cake wins my vote as 'most classy.'

Have a sweet evening!

I love the pic of you and your dad - - and also of the sweet treats! Right now I am reading "Fatal Judgment" by Irene Hannon but do not put my name in the drawing. I have way too many totes as it is - - -- love each of them and don't want to part with any I have left - - even though I won't ever use them all again.

There's nothing like a Daddy's love!!! I'm missing mine too. I'd be eating those macaroons for sure.
