My Pink Saturday Review

This is one of my favorite tea time Princess House Vintage Garden Tea-For-One teapot with a cute Princess House teaspoon holder, my pretty pink clip watch(to remind me it is teatime!) and a favorite Stash Chai Tea (Decaf).

This is my favorite and very old memory box. It is a cute pink brocade jewelry box that is filled with memories including an old love letter from a very old boyfriend(1972)! LOL! It also holds my wrist corsage from junionr prom 1971. I love this box and have carried it with me where ever  I have gone since 1969. It is filled with many, wonderful memories.

This is my First Communion Prayer Book from April 29, 1962. It has a very special meaning to me. I had a very wonderful childhood and attended St. Mary's Catholic School from the kindergarten  through the 8th grade. My mother's cousin had a son who was an ordained priest and he signed this book for me. If anyone sees me following their blog you will see my first communion picture posted there.

This is my brand new copy of Better Homes & Gardens that arrived today! Unfortunately, for me, it will sit with the handful of other magazines I am totally behind catching up with! The cute little framed picture "It's not easy being a Diva but I manage! " hangs in my kitchen. I love it and had to display it today. I also got it for a real bargain $1.10!

This is a pretty handmade shawl that my daughter Rebekah found at the A.R.C. Thrift Store for a few dollars.It is displaying my very warm thinsulation gloves that keep my hands warm when we get the bitter cold weather. I also am showing off my hot pink fleece beret that I wear to keep my head warm because when it is cold outside an uncovered head looses much of your body heat quickly !

I want to share a very special gift I received in the mail today. Although it is not totally pink it is an awesome gift that my good friend Barbara Boyack sent me and totally surprised me with! Thanks Barbara until I can properly thank you with a card & note. If it weren't for Barb I would never have started to blog. I am so clueless sometime but I am slowly learning and I think I am going to enjoy this for a long time to come. I have felt so welcomed by so many people and I truly enjoy visiting each and everyone of you as often as I can. Thank you for inviting me to your post's.

Finally I am showing you my Pink Trunk Wine displayed with a Princess House Balloon Hand blown Stem. Cheers to Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday's over at How Sweet The Sound and for each and everyone of you who stop by my blog and all of you who join the Pink Saturday posts. Stop by to see Sherry at A Happy Valentine, she has a wonderful blog and lots of pretty pinks. I visited her blog last week for the first time. I am really getting  to  know lots of  new wonderful people these days! Thanks again and please everyone have a very wonderful Pink Saturday.

I'm a sentimental old fool and love your memory box. I've had one in recent years, but I wish I had one going back as far as yours. Nice collection of pink! Happy Pink Saturday.

Very nice. I love your first communion prayer book. I have mine as well. I also collect prayer books and old rosaries as well as nun dolls. Something about those Catholic elementary school days is so nostalgic for me. Happy pink Saturday!

Your pinks have lovely stories behind them. I think my fave among them is your memory box. The letters, the corsage - - - every single thing that has meant to you all those years is guarded by that box :-)

Belated PS!



I am loving all your pinks. My hubby was raised catholic and our son too. We were married in our towns' St Mary's church. Our son went to school there too. Guess what?! As I was reading your blog and getting ready to post this comment, the ups man came. My give away from you came! It could not have come at a better time..
