Pink Saturday


If you're a gal of a certain age, like me, you remember Skinny Dip perfume! I loved this stuff, back in the 70s when I was a young, innocent girl. I was pretty excited to find this at the flea market a couple weeks ago, and although I didn't need it, I needed it!

Just a couple pieces of pottery sitting on the coffee table. The poor pink donkey has to pull a cartload of pens, remotes and reading glasses.

A tiny pink parakeet, and a girl and her pink poodle, both sitting on the bathroom shelves. Our home is so tiny, with very limited space. Every inch is valuable real estate, and yet I cover the shelves with "stuff". Do you do that too? Well, let's go visit Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound, to see how other "Pinkies" show off their pink treasures!

Hi Carol, great vintage, pinkie, sweetness you have shared today! LOL, I just realized that sounded like Yoda from Star wars. I posted a little pink squirrel a few weeks ago that would fit right in with your little donkey. Thanks for sharing, have a great weekend, Nan

I LOVE that vignette you made with that flowered tray. There was a time I used to NOT like those colours,,now I'm beginning to be drawn to them. Of course I will never lose my love of red. I don't remember that perfume...but I sure do love that box set..I think everyone needs one!! lol Have a blessed weekend...

Happy Pink Saturday, Carol.

Yeppers, I know just what you mean. I see so many things I "love", but definitely don't "need". And, my house has way too much "stuff".

Oh well. What can I say?!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

I don't remember Skinny Dip, but do you remember Blue Jeans cologne? Or how about Tickle deodorant? You have such amazing collections Carol! Your pinks are sweet!

I like having my "stuff" around to make me happy too. Really like your pink bird and the girl with her poodle.

Skinny Dip! gasp! I haven't thought or seen that in y-e-a-r-s. I remember thinking it was such a "naughty" name. It sounds downright innocent compared to what is out there now. Great memory!
