Pink Saturday Feature

Thank you Beverly from How Sweet The Sound for featuring my blog this Pink Saturday!

For the party, I did a quick trip around the house taking pictures of pink things and was surprised at how many things I found!


My 1950's prom dress, I found this at a yard sale for $5 and purchased it from the woman who wore it back in the 50's. (Here's the post for more about the dress.)


I love to crochet...flowers and hanger covers...


Millinery flowers are always fun to find...


A sweet old satin yoyo pillow that I found last week at my Gold Rush Days post...


Along with the ever popular pink gooseberry bowls...


A little fabric rose I made to decorate my crochet hangers...


More vintage millinery flower hats...


A pretty vintage doorstop.


Thanks for visiting!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Faye, stopping by via Beverly's Pink Saturday a little early. ;) I always start this party early AND I finish it late. ;)
Love all your pretty pinks, especially those crochet hangers. On my way to take a peek at that prom dress.
Happy pinks!!

Love your header photo - all the images in it but I especially love the embroidery. And then, I saw your crocheted pink flowers and goodness, what neat "stuff" you have there. My running comment tonight seems to be I only dream and admire these blogging crafty folk - but boy, it's getting harder and harder not giving being crafty a whirl. Especially certain things and I could add those kind of crocheted flowers to the top of my list.

Great post - enjoyed my visit. Dreaming on! Happy Pink Saturday!
