~PINK SATURDAY - Lovers of Pink Unite~

VINTAGE TOLE LAMP PAINTED PINK

I've so enjoyed being a part of PINK SATURDAY!  This is my 6th week to participate in this super-fun event!!  I've met lots of sweet new blogger friends and found FABULOUS sites that I just love!  Be sure to stop in and say a big THANK YOU to our Host,  Beverly, of How Sweet The Sound.  I hope you'll make time to visit some of the other participants, too!  You're sure to find lots of pinkalicious pretties and tons of inspiration!

My first offering is the vintage pink tole lamp you see above.  I painted it about 8 years ago and it's one I just can't seem to part with....  It hails from around the 1950's - 1960's.
VINTAGE PINK ROSE PIGGY BANKS

When I was a little girl my mother had one of the smaller piggy banks you see above on her dresser and  I always loved it.  My Gramma bought it for her at a Southern California store called Gemco around 1964.  She paid $1.99 for it.  I bought this Momma and Baby Piggy on eBay and trust me when I tell you they were MORE than two bucks!  :(  After I got them I didn't have any money left to put inside! :( OINK!
SWEET PINK BUNNY RABBIT

Many years ago I made this sweet pink Bunny Rabbit for my daughter, Adrienne.  It sat on her bed for a long, long time...  I keep it in my guestroom and whenever I see it I think of her...
VINTAGE GREETING CARD BOX

I love vintage greeting cards and if I can snag them with their original box then I'm in heaven.  Love those old graphics!  This aging box is new old stock and all the cards were still inside when I purchased it an an estate sale!!  It's from the 1960s and the company that manufactured them is no longer in business.
VINTAGE PINK PERFUME BOTTLE

My big sister sent this old pink perfume bottle to me as a birthday gift one year.  I love it.
VINTAGE NEEDLEPOINT PILLOW

I almost took this sweet pillow apart to remake it into a larger style.  But...in the end I just couldn't do it.  I love it just the way it is!
CHUNKY PINK BRACELET

My last offering for you today is this sweet little bracelet.  It's full of pink glass beads and several of them have tiny roses on the inside!  I love it and wear it all the time....

Thanks for stopping by...hope you enjoyed all my PINKNESS!

Love to you~

It is so much fun when you share your pink pretties from that Treasure Trove of yours. The two little piggy banks are so whimsical and sweet, and no doubt in "mint" condition. You find the cutest collectibles, ever!!

Have a great week creating & painting
