It’s a Wonderful Pink Life

Yes, that’s my all time, hands down, no doubt about it favorite Christmas movie. It’s a Wonderful Life …If it had a classic song like “White Christmas”, it would be complete. I had a longer post with pictures ready to go…thought I had posted and linked, but this newer edition of Live Writer sent the draft into the hidden depths of my laptop and I just can’t find it…hope this one makes it to the surface intact. Happy Pink Saturday to all until I figure out the kinks.

It's a Wonderful Life IS an alltime favorite of so many...including me! Sometimes, blogger drives me crazy with misplaced photos and text! Today it had a spell of it, but finally got it fixed by posting text in the html....scary! Happy Pink Saturday and Merry Christmas!

I think it's really my favorite one, too. I never saw it until after I was married. I wonder if kids today realize there was a time when you had one chance to see a film and only at the movies and that movie was way before we were born. (Unless it was Gone With The Wind or Giant - thank goodness!) Got my tree done, yea. Going to see Here.Me.Now that Erica's performing in. She's gotten great reviews in the Statesman. xo Nancy

Wonderful movie pick! Sorry about your program acting up, I get so frustrated with mine that I have to walk away or I'll end up shaking it just a little to hard!

It really is a wonderful movie. I hope you are able to retrieve your lost post or at least determine why it was lost so you can avoid it happening again. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy Pink Saturday. Blessings...Maryr

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.
