Pink Attitudes Are Truly Universal


I’ve been out of touch for a few days…21 to be exact…but that doesn’t mean I was on vacation from PINK…not at all. In fact, take a look at one really cute item in a waterfront café called Scooter’s  in Las Palmas, Canary Islands. IMG_1098

That’s right…a bright pink scooter in the window…but the pink attitude doesn’t stop there…this pizza shop celebrates American movies and music in a big way! Of course, Elvis is the King…

the king la Palma

  and in his honor, you can order a special pizza…

ingredients to match

The love of American movie classics continues all through the menu…

The Godfather pizza makes sense, but Gone With the Wind ? And it was difficult to figure out The Graduate. Still, it was nice to find such a happy Pink Attitude so far from home.


Famous American beauties also got top billing with lots of Marilyn Monroe and another wall of Audrey Hepburn…It was a welcome touch of home…


But if you wanted more local color and flavor, the waterfront provided plenty of scenic beauty.



Makes you hungry for a slice of On The Waterfront pizza doesn’t it? Well, it was fun, but now it’s time to head over to Beverly’s Pink Saturday gathering to see who is posting pink treats for us today.

Sounds like you visited a very nice, pretty place. At least you found some great pinks to share with us.

That was a very interesting place. Kind of like The Hard Rock Cafe but more my time period. That was a really pink scooter.

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.
