PINK SATURDAY~PINK SATURDAY~PINK SATURDAY!

Friday...already! Tomorrow is PINK SATURDAY! It is like it is dinner time at our house everytime I look at the clock it seems, the day has flown past and "it is dinner time." Well, this week has flown past like my days and I am having to think what I did each day to have made it pass in a blurr.....so, I am doing Pink Saturday early, so I am sure to do it! lol!

I do know what I did yesterday, I went to a fabulous barn sale about half an hour from here out in the beautiful, lush green Michigan countryside. I took my camera, but did I think to take a picture of the sweet turn of the century Victorian house? Or the darling little barn all made up into the sweetest shop where the sale was being held? Or all the pink peonies....there had to have been over a hundred bushes. No! No! No! Where was my mind? I have NO idea!!!
But I did get some wonderful goodies and I did take pictures of them today to share with you.....

So, lets start with the beautiful dried Statice.....look at that blue. I used to grow my own drieds when we lived in Washington State, but have no room to now, so this was a treat to get this big and pretty bunch....


And....the sweetest little bowl you ever saw....I got so excited when I found this. It is thin like fine china and is perfect for my cereal! And, the price you might wonder????? $.50!!!

And sitting prettily in my cupboard waiting for breakfast...

Next a lovely olde syrup pitcher...Oh my this is so pretty!

Here it sits and looks so at home in my corner cabinet....


Wait....there's more.....like this very, very pretty luncheon set...I thought I was just getting the cup and saucer and she said, Oh no....you have a matching plate. When I got home I called my friend, whose sisters barn they were having this in and said please get the other two sets for me...I LOVE THEM! I will leave them on the table ready for lunch!

Look at these deliciously pink with roses plates from Bavaria.....there were three and one has a chip and has already been cut up for a mosaic table I am doing....the other two are sitting where I can see them as I pass to the kitchen...

Having a warm soak are the linens I found too...one sweet,sweet,sweet tea towel with pale pink hand crocheted edging with a rose in the middle I am in love with....I will show that to you later this week.....For all my finds yesterday guess what I spent? No...that is waaaay too high... it all came to $20.25...don't you love spring and summer and the yard, garage and barn sales!

AND....As I promised last week....this may be last, but far from least...
Here is a new treasure of mine....I won this gorgeous lotion dispenser from our sweet Debbie Dabble! It was her first give-a-way and it was my first win!!! Even my SH thought it was mighty pretty!




Thank you, dear Debbie, I wish I could crawl thru the screen and give you a bear hug as I love this sooooo much! She also included a beautiful card that will go in my card collection of 40+ years!

Off to cruise thru other Pink Saturday blogs and you must go too....just go to
Beverly and you will find the list for this week! Have fun!

Warm Fuzzies,
Jil

Jil! I LOVE that syrup pitcher. Great find.

BTW, we may venture across Lake Champlain on the ferry. I am trying to get out more, so even if you only make it to NY, let me know. Unless, of course, you would like to come browse my dollar sale. Yup, everything going for a dollar except ribbon loop and vintage.

Still popping around for Pink Saturday. Have a wonderful week!
