Only a couple of pinks to share this week! Hopefully thrifting will get better real soon and I'll be able to add more pink to our home!

I found this old bottle of perfume at the flea market last summer. When I took a whiff, it only smelled alcohol-y, but I bet when it was brand new it smelled pretty sweet!

And next door to the perfume bottle is a really old cup, with the sweet sentiment "Remember me".

And for my last pink entry this week, a pair of vintage pillowcases. After Googling the tags, I found out that these are old ticking cases, meant for feather pillows. They had never been used, and now I think they've spoiled me for any other kind of pillowcase!
If you'd like to see some fabulous pinks, head over to How Sweet The Sound, where Beverly is our gracious hostess!

Hi Carol,

Isn't it fun to get ready for Valentine's Day? Love all your beautiful Pink Saturday treasures. I'm still trying to put away all my Christmas stuff. It was all so pretty, I hated to take it down.

Have a great pink weekend.

At this time of year we have to settle for quality over quantity!

Truth be told I have a thing for vintage pillowcases AND perfume bottles! Strange, huh?

What pretty pink finds! We love pink around our house.

I LOVE your Sears cottage! It is adorable.

I see you love all things vintage. I could fill my house with vintage wares. Some of your finds remind me of my old house. I had reds and greens in the kitchen and had so much fun picking up vintage finds at yard sales and thrift stores.

Leslie said...

Pink Frosting Cologne... I wonder what that smells like? Sweet?

Happy Pink Saturday Carol Sweetie...
A beautiful share. I love the old cologne bottles for beauty on the shelves, but you are right, sometimes the fragrance has long gone.

The pillow cases are so delightful. I love linens.

Have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

Pink Frosting! What a delicious name for perfume! Can't imagine what it must have smelled like but it sounds as pretty as a cupcake. Love all your pinks.

Dawn said...

Mmmm! Pink Frosting cologne sounds wonderful! I bet you'd get lots of "nibbles" wearing it!

Glad your back is better, it's an awful feeling to suddenly be out of commission that way!

Thanks for coming by! I miss visiting as much as I used to. Basketball has taken over our evenings and I'm trying to catch up on some organzation during the day.
