Pink Saturday with a touch of orange

It's baseball playoff time...


I've been busy getting ready for the Garden Ridge Women's Club Holiday A'Fair today so I'll have to post something a little different...I'm usually a huge Yankees fan, but as you may know, they are playing the Texas Rangers and no Texan would ever root for a yankee  team over a group of Texas boys...and Nolan Ryan threw out the first pitch...but in spite of a 5-1 lead, the Rangers lost to the Yankees in the sad...I was in a local restaurant watching out of the corner of my eye...the boys had a comfortable 5-0 lead when we left... but later when I checked the final score, bummer, the yankees had rallied to come from behind and take the first game of the series...  


I hope your Saturday is I'm a little blue...but if I earn some green at the gifts show, I'll be back in the Pink. Go Rangers!   now head over to Beverly's house to see who is playing on Pink Saturday.

Oh darn those Yankees, don't you just hate them? You know what else I hate? The fact that the American people no longer have control over what takes place in the government. Sure we get to vote, but is that really all that much power. If you are as concerned as me and many other Americans, come read my blog at:

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.
