Pink Pottery=Pink Saturday!

Today for Pink Saturday, I really don't have alot to share. It's so incredibly hot and humid outside, so I'm basically laying around the house like a slug!
These pieces of pottery sit atop our secretary hutch. It's so hard to pass up a piece of pink pottery, isn't it? That anniversary clock sat on my Grandparents' mantel for many years. Practically the very first thing I would do when we would arrive for a visit is wind that clock. One year, I couldn't wind it, because my stupid boy cousins over-wound it. Boys should not be allowed to touch pretty things, don't you agree? When my Grandma gave it to me, I rode the 350 miles home with it sitting in my lap!

Alot of you have already seen my vintage pink clock. But seeing as how I love it so much, and I haven't shared it for Pink Saturday.....

Here it is again! Along with a veritable rainbow of pottery. I'm always changing things around on the mantel, but the radio always stays right there!

This is a Duchess of Albany clematis from my late father-in-law's garden. The flowers never seem to open any further than this, so I think that makes them even cuter. And I never knew a clematis to spread by seed like this one does, but it's always nice to get free plants!
Well that's it for me. Please head over to How Sweet The Sound, where Beverly is our hostess with the mostest. I'm going to go lay down by the air conditioning vent now!

Hi Carol,
I love that vintage pink clock...it is so cool!
I found some vintage Christmas ornaments at my local antique store last week and I immediately thought about you. I know how much you love vintage Christmas!
Have a great weekend.

Wonderful post! I love it all. My grandparents had an anniversary clock also. My brother got it. I used to love to just sit and watch it.
Have a great weekend!
I'm staying close to the ac, too!

Your clematis is not one I've seen. The flowers kind of look like a tulip. Spreads from seed you say? If you ever decide to collect some....keep me in mind.

Have a wonderful junking weekend!

Good Morning, Carol! I love seeing your pinks today, and that radio is as cute as can be. You always showcase cute things.

I want to thank you for my birthday wishes. You are so sweet. I'm headed out in a few to a lunch/brunch with my out of town family who is here so I'm stealing a few minutes to blog beforehand. I appreciate you making my birthday complete. XOXO

Happy Pink Saturday to you...

You did a really great job Carol! I have the same secretary it seems except I have a spindle in the middle at the top. That radio clock is sooo cute. It cheered me up. Thanks for sharing.
