~~ PINK SATURDAY ~~~

Well Guys its once again PINK SATURDAY !!! our Hostess Beverly at How sweet the sound http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ Has a whole list of others that join in for this fun day...Please go by and visit some of the PINK ladies today... Now this is just a little PINK tea cup and sauce that my daughter Dawna gave me for Mother's day...see all the pretty PINK Flowers on it and the picture behind it is my sweet Dawna on her wedding day last year.. Oh and this little Fairy that's hanging on it my Mama gave me many years ago....she knew I was a PINK girl...Ok !! Ladies follow me and we will take a trip up stairs....just follow the PINK steps.....and Yes girls I have PINK carpet and a PINK painted wall here....Gotta to love the PINK !! and yes that's another Phonograph and RCA Victor one and it sits on an Edison Cabinet that holds all wax Edison round tube records that goes to my Edison Phonograph...yet another post...GOOD Lord I say that allot...but I do have allot of antiques I have yet to share with you guys..Just don't want to bore everyone with my "Passion"...
Now as we go upstairs this is the wall paper border...see all the darling little cherubs with the PINK roses?? I know I know !! wall paper is a NO NO !! but hey I am one of those nuts that like it...Please don't give me a low rating because of it...OH WAIT this is not Rate my Space...I'm safe here lol !!!Now this is a " Yard Long" I have these prints going up the stairs...but this one is dressed in What else but PINK.... this print is from 1910 and still in its original frame...I also have a collection of these even a Mary Pickford one that she signed...yet another Post !!! Boy I do say that allot...I also have old beaded purses and old hats hanging between these prints...these wall are all round...as I told you this is a barn Silo entryway....and looks just like a barn from the out side...Now this is part of my Guest Room up stairs and you can see its All PINK...I created this little Garden Tea area for my guests to sit and have a cup of tea...as this room is 640 ft so I was able to break it up with difference areas...I found this sweet little table and chair at a yard sale many years ago for $10,00 and it was brown...so Thank goodness for white spray paint and some Shabby Chic fabric it was as good as new...The hat was also just a straw hat I painted and added some of my Ostrich feathers and PINK roses to.. Please click on any picture and you can see all the details in wall paper, hat etc. Hope you all enjoyed some more of my PINK stuff...like I said at the first PINK Saturday I did...I could show my house for a year and never run out of PINK...







Please go see all the Other PINKS today.... Hope all of you have a blessed and safe weekend...







Thank you all for your Visit today....Hugs and smiles Gloria

Hi Gloria, your pink is so pretty. Pink is one of my favorite colors. When I get tired of all this red, I might have to change to pink! Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my christmas decorating. I'm almost done, but will have more pictures,I'm finishing up my house today, so I will post it soon. The house I did the other day is huge. It just happens to belong to one of my best friends. About 4 years ago when they first moved in I took Chase over there, he got lost and was screaming at the top of his lungs. He was so scared! It is beautiful though. Have a great weekend, talk to you soon! Kristen

ksarra said...

Hi Happy, I really enjoyed looking at your pink treasures. I love pink too and used to have a pink and green living room, but now for some reason I am drawn to dark red and woodtones. But I still have my MawMaw's things in my laundry/bath and that room will stay vintage and pink!

Glenda said...

I really like your wallpaper border. Looks absolutely perfect with the paint color you chose.
Your trash to treasure find seems wonderful for the use you have put it to. Your fairy is marvelous.

Sweetie said...

I love your pink but must tell you the thing that impressed me the most is your victrola. It is lovely. I also think that your wallpaper border is very nice. I have finally come to the point that if I like something I don't care if it's "in" or not. In fact, I have one wall in the kitchen wallpapered.
Sweetie
