PINK SATURDAY

The other day I decided to straighten out the cupboards that hold all of our bath towels. I hadn't done it in quite a while, and let me just say that it's amazing what you forget you had in your own home!
I forgot all about this old Avon Miss Lollipop perfume bottle.

I completely forgot about this old cosmetic pad dispenser.

These are cosmetic pads, in case you didn't know what I was talking about. You know, from back in the day when women used cold cream to take their makeup off. Unfortunately I couldn't find any square pads, which are supposed to go in there. And I'm a soap and water kind of girl, so I've never actually used this thing, but I sure do like it and I'm glad I found it again!

This quilt wasn't found in my towel cabinet, but on my porch, left by the mailman. I won Kelee Katillac's giveaway! I can't give you a link to her blog, because it's currently under construction. I was so surprised to find that there wasn't one but two quilts in the box.

And this one definitely has lots of pink in it! It needs some TLC, but if I fold it very creatively, it looks terrific!
If you love the color pink, you'll want to visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound. She hosts Pink Saturday every week!

Hi Carol!

It's been a while since we had a little chat. Do you know I've moved to Wisconsin? How amazing is that???? If you had told me four months ago this was going to happen, I wouldn't have believed you, and yet - - - here we are.

Maybe on one of your trips north, we will actually be able to arrange to meet live and in person!

Could happen - - -

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
What a beautiful share this week. I love your pinks. Now that little Avon gal is precious. Her hat just takes the cake.

I have never seen one of those cosmetic pad holders and how cute it is. Perfect color for today.

Now those quilts you won at Kelee's are absolutely gorgeous. She is such a BIG bunch of love, and she shares so freely. I missed that giveaway. See what happens when you are under the weather and don't get around, you miss out. What a beauty this star is. Love it. Thanks so much for sharing sweet friend.

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

Congrats on winning those beautiful quilts. I have lots of things hidden away here as I have such a mess in every drawer and cupboard. Hoping to get some of that straightened out over the next couple of days. Love that cosmetic pad dispenser. I use that kinda for my L'oreal toner every evening. ;) Have a great weekend. Tammy

Hi Carol!

I think I mentioned once before that I loved that Avon lollipop girl when I was young. I have the same one but I had to re-purchase her a few years ago at an antique shop.

I loved the Avon lady who visited. She smelled like flowers and her nails and her nail machine that dried your nails...and those little lipsticks! I remember how I felt so grown up when I was allowed to wear Sweet Honesty perfume. It was right smack in the dab middle of my Donny Osmond days and I was sure if I could just get in touch with Donny...he'd pick me!!!

Thanks for the memories!

Off to few craft fairs and bringing home apple pie!

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I love quilts and the one you won is just lovely! I've never seen one of those make up pad containers, but I know I've seen the square pads. Try Big Lots or Wal-mart. I use the pads all the time to clean mascara off my face or other make up mishaps. You'll find some way to use them.

Thanks for sharing your pinks with us and Happy Pink Saturday!

Donnie said...

Love all your pinks especially the perfume bottle. Cute. Happy Pink Saturday.

What a delightful visit for Pink Saturday. That old Avon bottle definitely brought back fun family memories to this baby boomer granny nanny! And what a cute Thanksgiving graphic at the top! My grandkids and I are thoroughly enjoying Thanksgiving and Christmas activities for grandparents and their grandchildren so that was an extra special treat. Have a blessed week.

Amazing how that "Out of sight-out of mind," thing works. But, always pleasant when they come back in sight again.
