PINK SATURDAY / Hunter Gatherer Party 11-04-2011


Sharing a bit of PINK Love for PINK SATURDAY!

I do LOVE my pin money purses!

I've gathered most of these by haunting eBay! I do non-stop searches on eBay for these and do best if I'm willing to accept an item in less than perfect condition. Prices did skyrocket on these little items from the 50's after one of my all time favorite magazines, Romantic Homes, did a story that included them a few years back,  but they have once again become a bit more reasonably priced. I've paid anywhere from $15-$50 for most of mine. I've found the later at night (or earlier in the morning) that an item is listed on eBay, the better your chances of getting it for a lesser price. So I guess the early bird does truly get the worm!!

I made this cute Warholish Mickey Mouse collage for my baby grandson's 1st Birthday Party this next week. He LOVES anything Mickey!!

Hey there my sweet friend!!!!
You know id be over sneeking a few of those by you if i lived closer..lol

Okay...on FB up at the left top of the page there are 3 icons the center one if you click on it should have the message i sent you. Once you are in that page down at the bottom i believe it asks you if you want to reply..cliick there then type your note. Its like fb internal email. Let me know if you understand that. It is so good to see you again..i was getting worried about you.

I cannot believe your baby is already ..how did that happen so fast?

Love and miss you my friend!
