~PINK SATURDAY - Shabby Cottage Chic Pinkalicious Stuff~

~My Favorite 'Huldah" Print~
Dressed All in Pink

OK Peeps!  It's time again for a quick PINK-ME-UP!  This is now my third week to take part in PINK SATURDAY which is hosted by the ever lovely BEVERLY at How Sweet The Sound!  I hope you'll take a few minutes out of your schedule and visit as many of the participants as possible!

Now...I've loved PINK for as long as I can remember!  The picture you see below  is of my most precious daughter, Adrienne, when she was two.  This charming little frock she has on was made out of pastel pink broadcloth and trimmed out with matching eyelet lace.  I routinely sold her clothes after she outgrew them and this is ONE I wish I had kept.  :....(  I loved it so much that I made her another one almost exactly like it when she was five.  I kept that one!
~My Baby Girl - Age 2~
Our Pink Princess in 1986
~Vintage Pink Rose Box~
Creamy White, Gold & Pink

After my Mr. AGPMan and I married in 1978 we were broker than broke.  We stopped at a road-side sale in East Texas one day and picked up this darling little beauty for fifty cents.  I've had it for 30 years now...
~A Precious Pink Book~
Filled with Scriptures & Love~

A few years ago my niece, April, sent me this beautiful keepsake book!  It is filled with passages from the Bible and timeless words of love.  One of my most favorite pink gifts ever!
~Cottage Chic Compote~
Filled with Pink Roses & Pink Glass Grapes

This sweet little ensemble can be found just inside the door of my china cabinet.  I just love it for some reason.  It makes me SMILE!
~Open Hands~
Lefton Pink Roses

This is one of my favorite little shabby pieces.  Whenever I see these beautiful 'open hands' I'm reminded to keep my palms up so I can receive all of the good things God has for me...

~PIN Money Bank~

You know...I really think this sweet little bank should say 'PINK MONEY'!  It is, after all, where nearly ALL my mad money goes...
~Vintage Nippon Pink Rose China~
Family Keepsakes

This beautiful two handle soup bowl and saucer are part of a set of fifty pieces lovingly given to my hubby by an aging family friend.  She had no children of her own and gifted my Mr. AGPMan with a choice of this beautiful vintage Nippon China or vintage Fiesta Ware.  My 19 year old self said "PICK THE CHINA!"  We found out years later it was worth less than half of the Fiestaware....but, I still don't care.  Loved the PINK ROSE CHINA then.  Love it now!

~Pink Rose Teacup Pillow~
Lovely Needlepoint

My last offering for PINK SATURDAY is this feather-filled Pillow!  I found the newer needlepoint in a dusty old shop framed in a dark green plaid.  Well...I couldn't have that so I remade into something I could use.  One of my favorite Pillows ever...and I kept it! :) 

Thank you soooo much for stopping by again!  Soooo nice to have you!  You are welcomed to come back again and again!

Love to you~

Goodness! What a bevy of beauties you have shared with us here today!!

That precious dress is to die for and you made it!! Wow! I am so glad that you made another one and kept it!
I used to sew all the time but because of a lack of space and working full time, it fell by the wayside. I hope to return to it soon!

All of the other pinkies you shared with us today just made my heart go pitter patter!!

HPS!! and have a great weekend!!

Beautiful lovelies for Pink Saturday. Your little darling dress you made is so beautiful, you always do such a wonderful job. The folding hands are special, my Grandmother had the one hand open, I remember it so well and she had the Pin Money bank also. Thanks for the memories. (Aren't we thankful for the nice weather now?)

Happy Pink Saturday Rebecca!
I am participating today as well for my first time..
I adore the sweet dress you made with Love for your daughter! The pillow is TDF and I don't blame you for keeping that one..
Have a great rest of the day my friend.


Dolores said...

Woo/hoo, so many beautiful pink pieces, but my very favorite is the picture of your precious daughter in the gorgeous pink dress....!!!!

Carol said...

Yes, little Miss Adrie girl just stole my heart away. Her little pink dress is beyond beautiful. What a ~special~ photo. You always have so much to share & the stories behind your Pink finds make your pictures extra special. I have never seen the pin money sweet is that. I am glad you chose the Nippon--that seems to fit in better with your scheme of things because of the rose lover you are.

Wishing you a Blessed weekend
Carol from Good "Ol Texas"

OMGoodness.....My Grandma had open hands like that. I can remember them in her china cabinet. I don't have a clue as to what happened to them???? I have most of her glass but alas....not them!!
Have a Wonderful Weeekend!

Char said...

Hello sweet friend, I have to say your post for this week is filled with lots of love and romance. Your daughter is just precious. Don't they grow up so fast. I love the pillow you decided to keep. The teacup is perfect, I don't blame you. I am always amazed at the things people throw out, but it's a good thing they do, or where would the rest of us be. Happy Pink Saturday Rebecca, Char

Lynn said...

I've seen a couple of these "pin money" banks and they are just so cute, I'd love to find one! Also like the compote, but love the crocheted flowers over it!

Marty@A Stroll Thru Life said...

Rebecca, I love all of your beautiful pink treasures. Each one has such sweet and precious memories attached to them, so they are truly priceless. Thank you so much for your wonderful comment on my post. I am so glad you were blessed. I will remember you in prayer and I do know the Lord is always in control, regardless of our circumstances. Believing that with all your heart is the hard part, but just keep praising Him. Some days that was all I could do. I couldn't pray anymore, so I just tried to praise. God Bless. Hugs, Marty

Tara said...

So many pretty pinks to see! What a beautiful little print. I can see why you wish you had kept Adrienne's dress, it's frilly perfection. Don't you wish we could wear dresses like that and twirl and twirl and twirl...
Happy PS Rebecca!

Ceekay-THINKIN of HOME said...

I smiled when you talked about the trinket box from when you were broker than broke. I KNOW those days...and I have some things my husband gave me during that time. I wish I had kept more of the Christmas ornies I made our first Christmas....funny how those things mean more with the passing years.
