PINK SATURDAY 9/20/08

PINK SATURDAY 9/20/08

Beverly of How Sweet the Sound is always our wonderful hostess for PINK SATURDAYS, so after you read my post, please hop over to hers here to see all the other PINK participants today!

This little pink & white porcelain hinged box is from my own little collection. I just love the pretty dainty highlighted gold detailing on this.


This pink pillow caught my eye on a website, too. Very summery & light, don't you think?



This is a vintage pink sepia toned postcard I found on eBay. I didn't buy it, but isn't this flapper just the most?!?! Said it was postmarked 1931 France. My grandmother could have posed for this picture! There was a time when she wore her hair this way. Weren't those the good old days?!?!

Happy PINK SATURDAY to everyone!!

Hugs,

Happy Pink Saturday, Stephanie.

I love your beautiful hinged teapot. And, the card is great. Those must have been the days.

The sad thing is, that lady on the postcard would be called "chubby" today, and yet she is not at all fat.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Connie said...

YOU never disappoint me with all your pink stuff, sweetpea!! I've been so lazy lately about photographing pink stuff that I need to get out in the garden and catch the last roses of summer before they're gone entirely. ;-)
Smooches for mum,
Connie

Neabear said...

Love the hinged teapot. So pretty! Also like the postcard and my grandmother wore her like that in her day too. She would be almost 100 years old if she was still alive!

Susan Hickam said...

I have never seen a pink tinged sepia before. Very interesting. If my grandmother posed for that she would have been shot by her mother. I loved your little box as well. Happy Pink Saturday.

Stephanie said...

What a wonderful blog...so many treasures!

Your photo at the top...your 'header' is fabulous...I LOVE it.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Stephanie
