Pink Treasures

Welcome to Pink Saturday sponsored by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. I kept waking up every 30 minutes after 1:00, so I finally got up at 3:30. Going to yard sales around 6:45. Hope to find some goodies! I was about to think I had shown all of my pink things and then I remembered the pictures I had taken of my treasures stored in my "playhouse". I am going to have to post a story on my "playhouse" that Justin built for me to put all of my yard sale treasures one day.
The first photo is of a dozen red roses that Justin gave me for Valentine's Day a couple of years ago. I know, this is supposed to be Pink Saturday not Red, but they have dried to a beautiful 'almost' pink color. I just left them in the vase and they dried beautifully. I did not intend for this to happen, but I'm glad it did. I didn't realize there is a pink head vase also in the picture (barely)!

This is a painting that I found at a yard sale a couple of years ago. I bought it because I liked it, no other reason.
Isn't this the sweetest little ceramic you have ever seen?
And last but not least, one of a few handkerchiefs that I have collected. I can't remember if Mother gave this to me or if I bought it at a yard sale.

Happy Pink Saturday!

How neat to have your own playhouse for your yardsale goodies! I'm jealous.

YOu really have to wake that early? It IS very early! But then you have something fun to look forward to. :-)

About the roses, isn't there a color named "old rose"? ANd The ceramic one is cute with the couple and has a touch of whimsy in it.

Belated Happy PS!


Thanks for visiting my blog! Love the hankie...have a FEW myself :) It looks like the flower may be peonies!

My Yankee hubby doesn't care to see pink around, so I keep mine to a minimum. LOL

Thanks for stopping by my blog Charlotte, muchly appreciated! I like to keep and dry roses as well, I can't bring myself to throw them away! Eventually the petals fall so I collect them to make a nice pot-pourri that grows over the years, a drop of rose oil preserves the petals :)
