Finding Pink: Vintage Buttons, Scarab Bracelet, Brass Key & Tassel, Rose Plates



It is not too hard to find pink when I'm out hunting down vintage goodies.

Look, there it is... in the little Victorian girl's dress. Love these antique autograph books.

And here's some pink in this vintage bracelet. The stones are all made of glass.



And this one I spotted at an antique show on Memorial Day. The very next day the same dealer had it at a different antique flea. I told her I had seen it the day before. Well of course I couldn't walk away from it two times! So home it went!


This is the second batch of buttons. The other's have sold. This time I paired these with a pretty little rose nut bowl, made in Bavaria.


This little gal's hat certainly fits the pink theme. I keep thinking she is Little Bo Peep but of course, her sheep staff is not at hand.



I paired this pretty pink and ivory tassel with an old brass key. Perfect together!


These are some of my favorites of my recent finds. Just the right blending of pink and green.




And one, just one stone is pink... a really nice scarab bracelet for those who like to wear them. Nice sized and good quality stones.



For more pinks, check out Pink Saturday where there's a PLETHORA of bloggers who LOVE my favorite color as much as I do. Some weeks there are more than 150!



Have a great weekend.

More great finds, Jillian!!! I love the key and the tassel..what a sweet combination!

I didn't have a chance to go "treasure hunting" this week....too much to do with celebrations and watching the little grands for a couple of days. They wear me out, but in the bestest way!!

Have a great Pink Saturday!!

L, Dana

Jillian,
Love the way you display your pinks. My favorite is the little girl with the pink hat that may or may not be Little Bo Peep!
