Pink Saturday and Tea at the Museum

The Sophienburg Museum and Archives here in New Braunfels, Texas, recently hosted a tea featuring member’s tea sets…and the sweetest cookies you have ever seen or tasted…they were inspired by the tea sets.

Of course, there were other yummy things to eat…and just look at the cute pink umbrella decorations…

They made a rather bland meeting room come alive!  Pink just does that, doesn’t it?  That’s why we celebrate Pink Saturday! Stop in to check out this week’s list of participants at Beverly’s house http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/

I’m off to Garden Ridge, Texas, for a craft show…I’ll be checking out the pink and taking a few pictures to share next week…enjoy the day…LaVerne

Sorry I'm a little late. Seems like when the sun is out I feel a desperate need to go outside and run errands or just life my face to the heavens and soak in the last rays before winter hits my neck of the woods.

It's always so much fun to share in the pink goodness of the blogs gathered together for Pink Saturday. A collection of some of the nicest women and prettiest blogs in cyberspace!

Wishing you a weekend filled with l♥ve and sunshine!

Oh shoot - these are fabulous and I love the umbrellas. Was this your sorority? Looks like it was a wonderful tea lunch. I think you should duplicate it and have the yayas for lunch! xoxo Nancy

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

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

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.
