Happy Pink Saturday all of you Pinkies! Today I'm posting a couple of my Favorite Pinks in roses, as I love roses on china the best! On the right side is a 12 inch lamp that was purchased on our Honeymoon when I was the sweet young age of 19 years old, and now the lamp is 49 years old! We purchased it as a keepsake in a little gift shop on Catalina Island while we were honeymooning for a week as it matched some of our new China we received as wedding gifts. Back in 1961 that was all the honeymoon we could afford and went with very little spending money "happy as clams"! The plate on the left I found in the Goodwill and it is a great match don't you think? Just like we were!  The pic was taken in the 25 cent photo booth and we got 4 pic's for a quarter! What a deal, these are the only pic's that were taken that week as we didn't have a camera and couldn't afford one, you would think we would think "can we afford to get married"?  We were carefree and "in love"we didn't have a care in the world! "Ain't Love Grand",  it was for us! We were married 20 years! Even if the pic isn't Pink, we did purchase some Pink that week! Don't forget to visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound for the other Pinkettes to visit!

Hi Marilou,
What a gorgeous couple you made! Sounds like you had a wonderful honeymoon. Ours was much the same but we didn't have a real honeymoon until we were married a year. Yes, love is grand! Your pink offerings are lovely and how nice they matched your china. Thank you for sharing and Happy Pinks to you. ~ Blessings

Hi Marylou,

I remember the photo strips too! In fact, my husband and I helped celebrate our 50th anniversary by taking a new strip. Of course, it was a bit pricier.

Thanks for sharing some of your most personnel life with us. Many times I have used those little booths for pictures such as this. My, that was a long time ago. The plate and lamp male a very nice combination.

How fabulous! I just adore that photo and yes, love is grand! So funny when you are in love all the little things you overlook "not having" because really it does not matter. I never married for money only love, I think it pays off in the end. What a beautiful story, lamp and plate.
