Pink with a Purpose

 

When Beverly started Pink Saturday, she probably had no idea how big it would grow...just like the Susan G. Komen Foundation...when her sister, Nancy, started the foundation twenty-five years ago, she probably had no idea how it would grow and how many lives it would impact...but just look at what I found at the grocery store this week...

revision 1

The Energizer Bunny has made pink batteries...

revision 3

And we have Pink Race for the Cure reading glasses...

 

revision 4

They have a pretty pink purse holder and pink jewels on the edges. Are these cute or what?

And wait, there's more!!! Pink refrigerator dishes to remind you of the Race every time you pack away the  leftovers.

revision 2  And water bottles to carry when you participate in the Race for the Cure or in the Relay for Life.  So many ways to contribute...all our lives have been touched by cancer...vow to do something toward the cure on a regular basis...start with self-examinations...and don't forget mammograms and prayers.

Now, back to Beverly's Pink Saturday party...http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi dear,
what a wonderful Pink post for a great cause! I just recently bought reading glasses but would you be a dear and let me know where you found the pink glasses? I would love for my money to go towards that instead.

Have a happy Saturday,
Deanna :D

Happy Pink Saturday, LaVerne.

I know just what you mean, and I agree that this corporate support is awesome. And, it is the right thing for them to day.

My husband and I were in the grocery store yesterday, and we were both noticing and remarking about all of the pink.

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

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.
