Pink Saturday


This little tray is part of a Pink ladies luncheon set...with the sweetest little violets and ferns...puts me in the mood for Waldorf salad or tomato aspic...


I'm selling this set at the Valley Girls Junque Sale...it's time for someone else to enjoy it. To see other things that will be at this Estate Sale visit Nancy and the Rio Babes.
Be sure and visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to see all the other Pink Saturday blogs. Thanks Beverly for hosting.

I love those dishes, I love Tomato Aspic! My 95 year-old Grandma made it all the time. As I child, I hated it and thought, "Why would anyone want to eat tomato flavored jello?" So yummy now, and so old-fashioned. The Waldorf Salad sounds good too. If I had that snack se I would make exactly those two things and maybe some tiny little chicken salad finger sandwiches.

They are still spotted at this time.

Flea Market Finds...sounds like my whole house and yard...

Milk Glass Collection

Milk Glass Collection
Who knew that a 25 cent flea market find would unleash such a collecting frenzy? I never pay more than a dollar unless it's a really nice piece. They are great grouped with a single daisy in each.

These used to be inexpensive florist vases in the 50's and 60's. Everyone's Grandmother had bunches.

Mexicana Dishes

Mexicana Dishes
My sister found these for me at Bussy's Flea Market in San Antonio, Texas. I had seen pictures in her Fiesta reference book. Mexicana was also made by Homer Laughlin in the 30's. I had been looking for several years without ever finding even a single piece when she found the set...with a promise to hold it for us, she came running to find me and I bought the entire set...60+ pieces for $50.

Mexicana

Mexicana
I've added to the set over the years, but the price and experience will never match that first amazing find.

Vintage Kitchen Hutch

Vintage Kitchen Hutch
When my hubby found this hutch it was Pepto pink and I was not 100% sure about it. But with a new red back and fresh white paint and refurbished hardware, it became one of my favorite pieces.

Nancy made me save the vine

Nancy made me save the vine
The vine and flowers painted on the inside were in such bad shape that I was ready to remove it all. Nancy -My Crafty Little Page convinced me to keep it and after some touch-up work, I'm glad I listened to her. My husband restores vintage Cushman motorscooters and he tries to make everything "mint" condition again. The Shabby Chic movement came along just in time to keep me from making some terrible mistakes.
