Happy Pink Birthday
Here she was all dressed and very cute in PINK!
Couldn't resist the pink piggies.
Or this PINK Easter Bunny costume.
And who wouldn't want to put their pink piggies in these beautiful shoes? It is a shame they are too tiny to wear and only fit in a shadow box.
I did giveaways in pink!
I showed my spiritual self when I talked about my pink bible
and very special pink paper heart.
I've shown my wedding bouquet...
and the bridesmaids'....
My pink lustreware collection...
and my old ballet slippers.
(This is a photo of Dear Bebe and I last fall, as we were picking up Grandma at the train station.)
Every Pink Saturday has been just as pleasant as the first. All the "pinkers" who join in are fun, sweet, and have lots of great pinks to write about.
A big thank you to Beverly of How Sweet the Sound!

Film Reel, Paris Postcards, Victorian China, Uncle Tom's Cabin Book
Just at the last minute I saw this large industrial size film reel. It appears to be what was maybe used in a movie theater. It has a fifteen inch diameter. I was just writing about this kind of home decoration last week on this blog...and wowie....I found a great piece!
These pink roses postcards are just adorable!
This is a nice size shoe form. Either a youth size or for a woman.
And speaking of hard to find... here is a vintage copy of Uncle Tom's Cabin. Probably from the 30's to late 40's....I could not find a date.

The Land That I Love! My New Vintage Patriotic Category
Vintage postcards , ephemera, and other patriotic antiques remind us how important our nation is, how much pride we take in our land and the people who have sacrificed for our freedom.
I've set aside a few things for a new category in my store just for this reason. Below are some of the items I'm featuring plus a few ideas on how to use them.
Remember how we started 234 years ago with this
lovely glass/metal handpainted motto sign.
A few patrioitc postcards to frame or to make a banner with!
For entertaining use vintage cake stands, canisters, and flags to
This vintage US NAVY pillow cover would be perfect
Sit back with a tall glass of lemonade on your porch swing and read about the ladies behind the presidents and the lives they led.
A Philadelphia Centennial souvenir (photo book) for the serious collector.
Fill vintage jars with color coordintaed candies or snacks.
Make decorations using vintage streamers

It's Fun to Be a Girl
Pink accessories... Being a girl can be lots of fun!
And last but not least I'm showing the result of one of my Bella Rosa Antiques T-Shirt transfers. I was happy with it until it was washed. Seems to me the transfer is a one time deal! It came out all wrinkly. Maybe I shouldn't put it in the dryer????
How Sweet the Sound.

My Step-Daughter (#2) just graduated from college recently and she has literally blossomed from a young 13 year old teen (when I met her) into a bright, beautiful, and courageous young woman.
