Got Pink?

When I saw that Beverly had declared Pink Saturday, I rushed through the appointments I had today so I could get back and share some PINK! What a perfect way to enjoy a day indoor when the heat is so very oppressive.

I can't look anywhere in this house that there isn't something Pink! I have a Pink sickness that just won't go I love it! So I snapped a few photos...

A Vintage window I painted, just love the original green chippy frame!

An Old Cabinet Door I painted hand hung over the fireplace...

Franciscan Pottery Desert Rose

Royal Winton Pink Petunia Tennis Set, my favorite pastelware color to collect...

And it's matching tid bit/candy holder...

A little Pink Something to sew with that Hubby gave me last year...

And when it isn't working hard, it hides behind sweet pink Yo-Yos.

A little pink box accommodates my map pencils and beads...

My favorite box to hid photos and software in...

And last, this hung in my grandmother's Dallas home until it was passed to me. It now hangs just over the pink box with the map pencils.

Many more pink things but I had to stop!

Thank you Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday! ALL the Pink Saturday participants are listed at Beverly's is FULL of fabulous Eye Candy, you simply must treat yourself to a VISIT to Beverly's Beautiful Blog!

  9. again...I just read your post on Foundation Cooking! I fry my meat for spaghetti and tacos...does the stewing it serve as the same? Really neat concept I would like to try! Thanks! Rhonda

  10. Hi Melissa! I love the window you painted. It's gorgeous. Thanks for the sweet things you left on my blog today. I had to come and check you out and I am so glad I did! I can't wait to see what other pink things you share with us next week.

  11. What a great collection of pink. The vintage window you painted is absolutely gorgeous!!

    Happy Pink Saturday.

    take care,

  12. Thank you all for the kind and encouraging words! :)

    Scooterblu....Yes, stewing or softly boiling the meat cooks it and is easy to manage. I can slow boil 20 pounds at a time in my big stew pot. It drains all the fat and really doesn't need watching like skillet frying does. And my fav reason for soft boiling is that it doesn't spatter and get tracked through the house.

    Thanks for dropping by!
