Happy Pink Saturday. I am joining Beverly @ How Sweet the Sound for a Pink-a-licious Party. Please click here to join.
I have never not liked pink. Honest. Although you can't tell by this photo of my sister and I (1969). It looks like my hand is forming a fist.......I just don't like having my picture taken. Or it might have been that I wasn't pleased with my mother's hair cutting job (notice the bangs). In this photo you just see my older sister and I, our younger sister posed in her pink outfit with our brother for their own photo shoot. When I outgrew my pinkalicious outfit, my sis was ready to pass hers down to me. That would have been 1970 or 71. Now I loved the outfit and yes I wore it with my white go-go boots (really really loved those boots) but our poor baby sister spent the next 5 years wearing the same outfit, first hers, then mine and then big sister's. I don't think she likes pink anymore.
I can't pass up a pink dish, especially when it is California Pottery, a favorite of mine..... as are both the lighter pink bowl and the plate and both Goodwill finds for $.99 cents each.
These pieces all have a pink edge. The Grandpa cup, the cup and saucer with flowers and the little vase are from Germany and Austria. The plate is Blue Ridge.
Of course pink candlestick holders are a must. All four of these were antique mall finds ranging from $2.00 to $15.00 for the one front right. In the right tablescape design, they are beautiful.
I found this plate years ago at Goodwill. It was produced by Salem and is appropriately called Pink Bamboo. It has taken me the past three years to find 3 more plates. I know I could probably find them online, but it feels like cheating. The thrill is in the treasure hunt.
Here is an impromptu (hastily assembled from dishes at the shop) tablescape. Pink glass salad plates are matched with the Salem plates and 2 mismatched pink glasses. The only thing that ties this vignette together is that it is all vintage and pink.
So please visit Beverly and see what everyone else is sharing. I must confess that I take my time visiting the blogs. It is a very relaxing way to spend the evening and Sunday morning. Visiting with blogging buddies always puts me in a good mood and really ........ how fun is that! Thank you to all that participate and stop by for a visit.
Got it at Goodwill
