Pink Vacation Finds-Pink Saturday

I'm back from vacation, and our daughter is all moved into her first apartment, so now it's blog time! For this week's Pink Saturday, I'm sharing a few finds from our vacation in Wisconsin.
Here we have a vintage Rubens planter. Is it a pink bluebird? Or is it just a pink bird?!

An old Haeger urn vase.

And last, we have an unusual McCoy planter. I picked it up a few times before finally getting in my car and driving away. As I was heading to another antique store, it was all I could think of, so I knew I had to go back and get it. I'm so glad I did, because if I procrastinated long enough, we'd be back in Illinois, and 350 miles would've been way too far to drive when I finally decided that I just had to have it!
Please head over to How Sweet The Sound, where Beverly hosts Pink Saturday every week, and you can see tons of pretty pinks!

Happy Pink Saturday Carol Sweetie...
Another beautiful post. I love the little pink (bluebird). Sure looks like one to me. Just precious.

I love the pink urn. They are so wonderful in tabletop settings and vignettes. Just a beautiful find for sure.

I am so thrilled you went back for the tulip planter. It is just beautiful. Yes you would have been sorry, I am sure of that. I would have been sorry, because I wouldn't have gotten to see it either. Yipppeee. Thanks so much for sharing today. I love it when you do.

Have a gorgeous weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
