WELCOME TO PINK SATURDAYS

Worlds Fair Chicago Tea Towel purchased at a yard sale 40 years ago for 50 cents, what a deal, this beauty hangs in my bath room as a guest towel and everyone knows it is for eye candy only!1933 Worlds Fair

This sweet lady is a porcelain pin cushion from my vintage pin cushion collection and she is surrounded by pink lovlies of pink and cream pearls from my 20's and graced by my Harmony Kingdom roses of deep pink and rose pink.

Sweet pink mini wire dress form holds a tube for water and rose bud, empty now usually holds my embroidery scissors. It stands about 8 inches tall.


Welcome to Pink Saturday and my first "Pink Post", last but not least is a small crocheted dress from a collection of pot holders but stands in my bathroom on top of a bottle of hand lotion. Too Pinky Cute!  I would like to  thank Beverly for hosting Pink Saturdays and allowing me to join the group of Pinky Gals, I'm sure I'll have lots of fun posting pic's and making new friends! Don't forget to visit Beverly's  Pink Saturdays at this link to visit all the pink party gals!           http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/pink-saturday/

WELCOME TO YOUR FIRST PINK SATURDAY MARILOU,
WHAT YUMMY PINKS YOU HAVE SHOWN. I LOVE THAT PINK DRESS FORM THAT CAN BE USED AS A ROSEBUD VASE OR SCISSOR HOLDER. I THINK I WOULD KEEP A FRESH ROSE WITH A LITTLE WIRE BUTTERFLY BY MY WORK AREA TO INSPIRE ME AT ALL TIMES ESPECIALLY IN THE WINTER.
VERY NICE TO MEET YOU.
HUGS
SIMPLY DEBBIE
