For PINK SATURDAY I always enjoy showing reflections of PINKS in my antique mirrors.

Recently my daughter surprised me with a shopping trip to a new antique mall in her area, and there I found 8 of these gorgeous PINK glasses. Of course they came home with me!

Pattern:  Fostoria ~ Heritage PINK

I also found this little lovely at my friend's antique shop here in town.

Can anyone tell me what this was used for and what it is called.....
it is too small for a cracker tray, only about 1 1/2" across.

Please be sure to visit our sweet and wonderful hostess for PINK SATURDAY, Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. She will have a list of oodles more PINK for you to visit today!!

While shopping last week, I came across two sweet little vintage lockets that had to come home with me.

The first is a very pretty taupe/cream cameo

I just love how someone pasted their love on the back

The next is a true double locket with a beautiful portrait lady.
Although she is scuffed a bit, I still love her.

Back side of locket

This one appears to have a father and possibly a mother and grandmother inside.

How on earth could anyone part with these sweet family heirlooms?
And how could I NOT bring them back with me
 and give them a new loving forever home?!?

I'm linking up with our wonderful hostess Cindy of My Romantic Home for Friday Show and Tell. Please visit her here for a list of all of today's participants!
