~PINK SATURDAY~



Hey guys...WOW!! already another PINK Saturday is here...today I thought I would just show you some of my Victorian PINK's that I have...Please be sure and go by and see our Great PINK hostess Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ How Sweet the sound..to see all the Great color of PINK today... Now this is just a little settee I have in what else my PINK Bedroom...its is ca. 1880 and is made of walnut...but I had it recover in what else but PINK roses...




Now this is my Hall Tree in my entry way and I made the books wrapped in ribbon with PINK flowers on it and also an angel with a PINK wrap on his bottom and a PINK candle...the Hall tree is also ca. 1880 and is walnut and burl wood..and if you look real close in the mirror you'll see me in my PINK sweats...Don't you love the color PINK??





Just a little side chair in my bedroom again its walnut with PINK Roses...and next to it is some PINK hats boxes that I covered in wall paper... And Yes I have PINK carpet...






Now !! this I just love its a lamp...all the flowers and leafs are glass...its also from around 1920 and a real bugger to clean...but so pretty when all lit up...







How about a PINK Bridal Bouquet ?? the Bouquet is old I just added the faux flowers to it...and Look girls my Great Grandma's shoes and the white dress is my Grandma wedding dress I even have the veil that she wore in 1913... WOW!! imazine trying to get those shoes off and on at airport security .....








Now this is an Victorian Curtain rod...that I made into a towel rack for my bathroom and the Towels my Daughter Dawna did for me...these are those lookies towels you know the ones you can look at but not use...ha ha!!









This is just another one of my Victorian Pictures that hang above the towel rack...and I just loved the little girl and boy and the English Bunnies in it...I got the print at auction years ago and then had it framed...is she not the sweetest thing in her PINK dress..Oh I just know Lynne will love this one as she loves all things bunnies..and Girls if you have not been to Lynne's blog do your self a favor and go visit her...it will be well worth the trip..she has a wonderful blog and can decorate like no other and is just one of the Greatest friend you could have... http://lynnesgiftsfromtheheart.blogspot.com/2009/01/i-really-tried-to-give-it-upa-big-thank.html


Well guys I hoped I did not bore you too much today with all my PINK Victorian things...




May all of you have a safe and blessed day and I'll see you for BLUE Monday....




Hugs and smiles Gloria

I'm early, Gloria, but Happy Pink Saturday on Friday night! I love your little sofa and everything you have! I would love to stroll through your home and look at all of your pretties.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Susan said...

LOVE your pinks in your bedroom! I would love to have more pinks in the house...but don't have many (right now). Happy Pink Saturday!

Melissa Miller said...

~Beautiful~ :)
I love your Victorian chair. You have the most unique and special furniture. I know your home is beyond amazing.

I got a bit confused just now. HMM...
I did not know more than one blogger hosted Pink Saturday? I was thinking about giving it a try and I left a comment to a lady named Lynn asking if I could join. I've never met Lynn or Beverly. Maybe I can try it next week after I figure this one out. If you can tell me more I would appreciate it.

Have a wonderful weekend.
~Melissa :)

bet your bedroom is just gorgeous! I love the rose material on your settee and chair! Happy Pink Saturday! ~ Robyn

Melissa Miller said...

Hi Gloria, :)
Well that clears it up for me that one person hosts it named Beverly.

A different lady named "Lynn" at a blog called "The Vintage Nest" had left a comment to another blogger inviting her to join Pink Saturday. I left "Lynn" a comment tonight asking if it was too late for me to join? She probably thinks I'm crazy by now. LOL!

I'll leave a comment to Beverly and ask her. I'm sure it's too late though.
I'll do it next week if so.

Thanks for the help.
~Melissa :)

Wonderful job coordinating the fabric on your settee and chair with the wallpaper you used to cover your hatboxes.
Your hall tree is a thing of beauty. The candle holder really adds bling. Loved seeing your Grandmother's wedding dress. I think I might have seen that at one time on RMS, but I could be wrong.
Really enjoyed your post.

Happy Pink Saturday my friend. Your settee and chair are just too gorgeous for words..Those shoes would be something else to try and get on and off at the airport security. They are darling things. How fortunate to have your grandmothers wedding dress and veil. Your candle holder on your hall tree almost matches the lamp in the toile bedroom..It is "gorgeous" Now girl... You know I'm in "love" with that bunny picture.. oh my goodness. I'm so glad we can click on the picture and make it larger.. brought it up close and personal. lol.. I'm still drooling over that beauty. They are just too precious for words... You have some of the most awesome things... Have a super Pink Saturday....hugs ~lynne~

Hi Gloria, I loved going back in time with your gorgeous vintage things. It is all beautiful. I enlarged each photo and your hall tree with the pink candle and holder is so pretty and different. I love your grandma's wedding dress what I could see anyway. Your great grandma's shoes are a treasure too. Your settee and chair are lovely as is the bunnies in the print. All of tour treasures are special. I think you are a romantic Gloria.
