Pink Saturday Relay for Life

I'm posting early since Saturday morning will find me in Pfluggerville, Texas where I'll be joining Nancy (My Crafty Little Page) and Barbara (Rio Star Ranch) for our walk in the Relay for Life...our team is using a "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" theme and we are designing, decorating, embellishing and other-wise Girling-Up our bras...I found a hot pink Delta Burke bra with zebra stripes to start with...then added a hot pink boa and New Year's Eve party favors...I plan to wear it over my tee shirt unless the rest of the team feels it is too much "Fun" that case, I'll retire to the sidelines, pull off my walking shoes and slip into my favorite Goody Goody slippers in what else? Hot Pink, of course...Happy Pink Saturday and especially to our hostess, Beverly...It's raining in central Texas and that is making for some happy Pink smiles this weekend!!

What lovely pink-a-licious goodies this week. I could get lost in pink and never return☺ Beverly didn't know it but she made my day when she came up with this day to celebrate my favorite color!

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday and a wonderful weekend full of sunshine and l♥ve!

I hope you didn't get rained out and were able to wear your pink. You wouldn't believe the torrential downpour in our part of Texas today. The backyard has turned into a lake. Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi LaVerne! Bravo on you! I love Delta's bras and I can just see you in the done up bra with the boa! We were just up in Austin this weekend and it was just lovely so I hope you had good weather too.

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.


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.
