Another Fabulous & Fun PINK SATURDAY.........



First, I want to say how sorry I am that I did not answer any comments last week.

Thanks to Bev, our lovely host of Pink Saturdays, I would not have thought to see if the comments were blocked....I just thought no one came by! lol! So.... I want to thank each of you that visited, for leaving such nice comments and I am glad you all did come by, I don't feel so lonesome now!

(I have no idea how my comments got blocked as I have not opened that page in ages!! Wicked Trolls in my computer???)

Here are a few favorites of mine with pink...I hope you enjoy them!

Would you believe that I found the pie plate in Arizona, and the matching cookie jar shortly after we moved to Michigan? My "over flow" of cookies, when baking, go in this cookie jar and for some reason, my dear hubby has never thought to look there when the big cookie jar is empty! heheh! It is my secret stash!! These beautiful old pie plates are wonderful for dinner plates. I have a small collection and it makes for an interesting and unusual table setting. Very Cottage!!

This little ballerina pin was given to me by my younger sister when we were small children. She picked them out herself and there used to be two. Even with a little missing rhinestone, she is so precious to me! She holds lots of dear memories. I used to wear it all the time. The gold boot belonged to my beloved Mom and I remember her wearing it. I see, it too, now has a missing stone here and is about 50 years old.

This olde, sweet bowl with roses, is one of my favorites in the kitchen. I have cupboards with no doors so I can enjoy my little collections.

This vintage shelf and plate holder, was painted by my dear friend Pauline in California and means much to me now that we live so far apart!

And, last, but not least, is this lovely old plate. I found this when we lived in beautiful Prescott, Arizona in one of my favorite antique stores. The pink is a luscious pale pink in a raspberry tone and I purchased it on a beautiful summer day that holds more sweet memories.

Thank you for coming by and have a wonderful week!

It is SPRING now and my tulips and daffodils are bravely peeking their heads thru the soil. I hope I am not jinxing things by saying, "bye bye Winter" to soon. There is a storm heading our way from the West.....I hope it will leave all the snow in the Rockies and be just rain, when and if, it gets to us!

Thank you, Bev, for all the work you do in hosting these fun Pink Saturdays, and Thank You, too, for helping me figure out my problem!!!

I'm glad you discovered the problem. Happy Pink Saturday, Jil.

I love all of your pink treasures today. And, I especially love your pins. I did a post once of pins and brooches that have been given to me by friends and family.

Stephanie said...

Wow!! So many lovely treasures. Love the pins and the story to go with it!

Vintage Linen Treasures said...

OOO! The girls are soooooo pretty! How fun for them to go to the prom.

You have such pretty pink things. I love the pie plate and matching cookie jar. We don't really have a need for more than a single plate for cookies, as there are NEVER any left overs. My kids eat them all up!

Glad you found out why there were no posts. Those nasty little trolls!
Patricia :o)

PS: OH YES! I DO remember that crazy tea cozy lady from up north.

Hi Jil ` first let me say what a beautiful daughter you have. Prom is so exciting, both for your daughter and you! I remember my daughter's first prom, she looked so beautiful and it was scary to see how fast they grow up, but become such wonderful young ladies at the same time!

You had asked for the address for Megan, my niece for the "Support Our Troops" Day Blog event I hosted this past week ~ so here's the addy!

PFC Megan Donnelly
47th CSH
COB Speicher
TF Tikrit
APO AE 09393

I am so excited, I talked with her today, she called and I was so happy to hear from her! She sounded good and had requested slippers for walking on the base when she is off duty instead of wearing her combat boots, but I have already taken care of this one and I am sure she will most appreciative of anything you decide to send, just remember to include a note, as I told her she was receiving boxes from some wonderful bloggers for her and her fellow troops and she said to say "thank you so much" and she really appreciates the support!

Have a wonderful day and I hope your daughter enjoyed or will enjoy the prom! Oh, to be so young again!!
