For a girly girl like me, finding something pink is not a problem. Let's start in the kitchen shall we, with this pair of cute little pink piggie salt n pepper shakers.
Actually, with them sitting on the kitchen table, staring at you, it makes it hard to eat your bacon.
I just love this Russel Wright - Steubenville casserole dish. It is really more than a dish, it is a piece of art. The way the lid handles turn up, and the bottom handles are down turned, I am not embarrassed to say, it makes for one sexy stylish piece of pottery. What makes it even more appealing to me, is that is was a Goodwill find for $4.99.
Russel Wright (April 3, 1904 – December 21, 1976) was an American Industrial designer during the 20th century. Beginning in the late 1920s through the 1960s, Russel Wright created a succession of artistically distinctive and commercially successful items that helped bring modern design to the general public.Wright is best known for his colorful American Modern dinnerware, the most widely sold American ceramic dinnerware in history, manufactured between 1939 and 1959 by Steubenville Pottery in Steubenville, Ohio.
Still visiting in the kitchen, is this fabulous, still in its original packaging, never used, bread slicer. You would place the piece of bread in the metal holder and then use the knife to slice down to make two perfectly thin sliced pieces. When making your cucumber and watercress party sandwiches, a girl has to have thin slices. Don't forget to cut off the crusts.
My favorite pink kitchen utensil is this wonderful egg beater from the 50's. You have seen my collection of green and red painted handle utensils, quite popular and readily available at flea markets and church sales. I have never seen a handle that is pink and black. Makes me want to change out my kitchen with a new color scheme just to match this egg beater.
Pink in my sewing room. Here are a few finished yo-yo's for a baby's quilt I am making. I first learned how to sew these yo-yo's or what I call puckers when I was 10. Over the years, I literally have made thousands. Here is a hint. A plastic coffee can lid makes the perfect pattern for the perfect size pucker.
Remember at the start of August, I spent my birthday doing some "Thrift Shopping". One of the places I visited was Salvation Army. On that day, I found a cute little yellow canister for only $.79. It wasn't till I got home, that I realized something was inside the can.
Here she is in all her pink deliciousness.!!!!
Here is what the bottom looks like. Now I have some ideas as to what she might be, but I would really love to hear from you as to what this lovely lady was used for, thank you in advance for your help.
So that is my pink today. I am glad to be sharing with you for this most colorful party. Makes me want to get out my pink ruffles and bright pink lipstick and go have some pink fun visiting everyone at the party. Thank you Beverly for hosting. See you there.
Got it at Goodwill
