Congratulations, Beverly! Let’s have a Big Pink Birthday Celebration in NYC!

I just got back from a trip to The Big Apple last week and I’m ready to head back today! Wouldn’t it be the perfect way to celebrate Beverly’s fourth Pink Saturday birthday with a trip? I know just the perfect ride…

That’s right; it’s a bright Pink stretch limo Mini Cooper! We could all pile in and wave from the sunroof just like the Sex in the City girls! One of our first stops would have to be one of my favorite paper shops…


The shop is all decked out for spring in shades of Pink…And the window of the Grand Central Station shop sported this mannequin wearing a paper dress!


I found a vintage looking map of Paris poster to use in Grace’s Circle of Friends journal. So I had my Pink Saturday ladies in mind while I was shopping.

Next stop would probably be for Chocolates at Teuscher’s  on Fifth Avenue by Radio City.

It is one of the most Pink shops anywhere. And the chocolates are in a class of their own! We could break the bank in there…

But no birthday party would be complete without candy! And flowers…we could stop in at the corner market and while we’re here at Klein’s, let’s pick up a bottle of wine!

It would be the ultimate Pink Saturday girlfriends trip! The absolute highlight of our party would have to be a visit to Tinsel Trading Company. Talk about eye-candy!

We would have such fun picking up vintage finds…

Yes, it would be the perfect way to celebrate this Pink Saturday and to thank Beverly for all the friendships and fun she has created! Well, I’ll be enjoying the weekend at home watching the Indy 500 and listening to Back Home again in Indiana as only Jim Nabors can sing it. Monday we will pause to remember the meaning of Memorial Day. Right now, I’m off to visit How Sweet the Sound to see the list of posts for this special Pink Saturday.

Looks like New York as a lot to offer. I have never been there.

I think we need to start saving for a PS Trip to NYC!! It looks like you had a blast.....and still had time to plan the perfect PS party trip! I visited that town many years ago....and loved every minute of the trip. I'd love to go back.

I hope you have a great PS Birthday weekend.....I am so glad we met through PS and Nancy ! I can't imagine my life w/o you gals !

L, Dana

If we were ever in NYC together, I'd just tag along with you because it looks like we love the same places! And isn't that paper dress amazing?!!

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.
