A One and Only Pink Saturday Post?!?

I am not really a pink girl. I know that the statement alone is sending chills through some of you. I do like pink...I just don't decorate with it. But I thought the first Saturday of 2009 was a good time to share a few of the pink items I do have....for Pink Saturday at Bev's. This Depression glass bowl was my MIL's.

The sign I have on the Laundry room door going to the Garage. It has a precious pink metal flower.

These random plates hang in my Guest room. The bottom left was my MIL's dish pattern. The other's just purchased at various times for the plate rack.

Now, this is a wonderful slogan to live life by! Just ask my husband!!!

My most precious pink possession is my Grandmother's teapot.

I did receive one new pink (sorta) item for Christmas. My husband bought me a beautiful Coach wallet. It is black on the outside, but PINK on the inside.

Happy PINK saturday everyone!!

Neat. I like pink but don't decorate in it either. Your items are neat though. I love having things that belonged to someone in my family. Thanks for sharing and for stopping by.

I don't have much pink either! It is more of a challenge to find some pink items!

You are a pink lady! You have more pink than me! I love the plates, and the lovely tea pot. I have, well its my daughters, who is 27 and its still here, My MIL gave her a tea set when she was born. I guess she take it to her home one day.

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Ceekay.

I love your pinks, and I am a firm believer in the saying on your sign. ;-)

Maybe you can show us your new wallet next week.

And to know that it is a family heirloom...makes it even more of a treasure!
Welcome to Pink Saturday!

Welcome to Pink Saturday. The teapot is just darling, I can see why it would be so special for a couple of reasons. THe plates are great too. Kathleen

Kathy said...

Well now, see? You ARE a pink girl after all! Love your pinks today, C. Your grandmothers tea pot is gorgeous. And your slogan is perfect, in my opinion!

XO...Kathy

I don't decorate in pink either as my husband wouldn't like it, so I have satisfied myself with blues and greens and accents of pink every once in a while. This seems tolerable to him. It was one of the only requests he made. LOL! Welcome to Pink Saturday!

I'm not much for pink, either; even though I have scads of dishes with pink on them. For some reason, pink dishes are different. Love yours. Sally

Ceekay - thanks for visiting my first Pink Saturday post. Yes, I'm a pink girl, but my little farm house has only one pink room... my farmer couldn't handle too much pink!

I love your pink depression piece and especially love grandmother's pink teapot. It's beautiful! Obviously, you are "pink" at heart!

The Muse said...

so nice to meet you, and may I add, I am so glad that you stated you aren't really a pink gal..lol, I have been all alone ! LOL
not at last, a partner in crime!
(i just found out TODAY, that the pink you display, doesn't have to be your own...! LOL...oh now if that isn't like giving candy to a kid 10 min before bedtime...!!! LOL)

Robyn said...

Lovely pink contributions! I'm especially fond of the pink depression glass bowl and the beautiful teapot!
Hope you have a fun weekend and a Happy New Year!

Hi again :)
I found the mini cloche at a anitique mall a few months ago. They are actually from Princess House crystal and I think they were sold as little butter dishes years ago. I have never seen them anywhere else. They had 2 at the time, I only bought one and wish I had got the other. I hope you find some.

Pretty items! It's so neat to have the family pieces, though. They are extra special.

I want to see the wallet. You forgot to mention that item to me.

Your pinks are lovely & Mary (my swap partner) sent me a tea pot very similar to your grandma's. I think it's on my last week's pink post. Amazing.

Hello Ceekey, your pink is lovely. I love the tea pot, your laundry room sign, and your plates. It is all good, thanks for sharing your pink.

I am posting a day late as we were out of town yesterday. I am finally catching up. Loved your pink!

Hugs...Jeanne

You have some wonderful pink heirlooms there. :)ellen

Jan and Tom's Rose Haven said...

What pretty PINKness!!! I love the depression glass and the teapot. Is that a SADLER teapot, by chance?

Oh, B&B's are GREAT - you'd love 'em. Why isn't hubby a fan? Tom loves 'em too!! Actually, it was because he loved them, that I actually decided to make them a place we frequent alot!!!

For your first "pink" Saturday, you did a lovely job! blessings, Kathleen

Joy said...

I don't have a ton of pink either except in my curio cabinet and my bedroom. And my youngest daughter's room. And my closet...

CC said...

Happy belated Pink Saturday..I love the teapot and those beautiful plates. You have really pretty pinks. Hope you have a lovely week.

Katie said...

I don't have any trouble finding pink, being a pink gal who decorates in it, paints it, crafts in it! But, I sure hope you can find some outside-the-home pink pics for future posts!
