Happy Pink Saturday! Two Years and Going Strong...



First of all, let me say that I know my friends in Blogland must think I have fallen off the face of the earth.  I assure you, I have not, but thanks for asking.  It has been a busy few months re-installing our yard after 2+ years of constructing my studio (which still isn't quite done, but I digress), running around with kids, making a couple of trips to Texas for an aunt's funeral and an aunt's birthday (different aunts), having a yard sale, and doing some housecleaning.  And then there is this little issue with our how-much-can-you-love-a-camera-Canon Rebel which, through some stramge turn of events which are a bit vague, involving two precious little boys, the camera on the tripod, and a very big "oops", causing the focus to work sort of, I have been on an extended Blogiday.  I've missed you all, but I've been taking care of business that needed to be taken care of, so it has been good.

Second of all, we all need to wish Beverly, our Pink Saturday hostess a happy second anniversary or would it be birthday???  She has been tirelessly hostessing Pink Saturday for TWO years.  I am amazed at her faithfulness.  There is a bumper crop of participants this week for that very reason, so if you pop over to see her at How Sweet the Sound, you will have links to more pink than you can shake a stick at.  It will probably take all week to get around to everyone, but I know it will be fun.

Thirdly, I guess I should introduce my post for Pink Saturday.  I told you I had a yard sale.  What I didn't tell you was that it was with a friend and fellow antiques dealer named Karyl.  This is a dangerous thing to do.  While I did actually get rid of more than I came home with, take a look at some of the darling things I picked up from Karyl's offerings.

Beautiful pale pink vintage hat, vintage millinery rose, and a handpainted silk hanky holder.


The cutest old stationary boxes you've ever seen.  Who can resist their pretty pastel colors?

A darling vintage clothespin bag.

Check out the close up of the flowers. 

Wonderful metal...thingies.  Who can resist the sword and crown motif?  Not me, apparently.

An old daguerreotype, a vintage music holder, and the coolest angel metal piece I've ever seen.

Plastic bulb covers in the shape of tulips.  Can't you just see these with little white lights to celebrate spring?

The shabbiest antique silk skirt and blouse dripping with character.  Also mostly falling apart, but it was SO pretty, I had to rescue it anyway.  The fabric is a watered silk with pink roses.  My pictures didn't even come close to doing it justice, but trust me, it is divine.



Don't you love the lace up back?

Anyway, that's what I brought home.  I love everything I got.  Hope you are enjoying this beautiful Memorial Day weekend with friends and family.  We are finally getting some warm weather, so we are all doing the happy dance. 

Until next time,
Pin It!
