Thinking Pink #7: Beach Houses & Vintage Finds of the Week

Welcome to Thinking Pink #7!
Each Friday I like to highlight
my latest finds in my favorite color.
This week, after coming off of a vacation
in Ocean City, New Jersey, I am
sharing some of my finds there,
including this awesome mid-century
modern beach house.

Is she fabulous or what?
Each day we would either bike
ride or drive by this house.
Finally towards the end of the
vacation on yet another bike ride,
I said "WAIT! I've GOT
to take a photo of this!"

And I took this shot.
And this one too.
It was then I noticed a woman
out on the deck. She was
soaking in the morning rays of
the sun.

(Can you see her up in the left
hand side of the photo?)
I yelled "Love the PINK!"
She yelled back: "Thank you!!!!!!!"
And then I took a picture of this
beach front house, too.
The roses along the front
were a nice touch.
The pink, in contrast to
the perfect blue sky on a
beautiful crisp day, was
so bright and really popped.
Now here are some of
 my finds, in pink:
Vacation... always a great
time to shop another area for
vintage. We stopped at
several places on our way down
to Cape May.
I also found this little cutie,
marked Made in Japan.
And another little bit of LuRay
to add to my inventory.
More pictures to come and they
will be added to my shop soon.
School is about to start.
Just one week left.
We've had a great summer...
It will be bitter sweet to
send Bebe back to school,
but this means I will be
back to working in my shop
full time. What fun to
go through all of my summer
finds again. Kind of like
Enjoy your day!

Wow, that is pretty house. I never thought pink could work out in a house besides Barbies, but it worked pretty well on this one ;-)

I love all the pink houses. I am trying to figure out if there is a pink house on our beach, but I don't think there is.

Happy belated Birthday, my friend. I hope it was wonderful.

The pink beach house is too cute! I'm glad you let her know. Also love the flowers by the picket fence. Cute pink finds, but I am drooling over your Lu Ray. I had never seen it until I saw your amazing collection. I found my first piece a while back a baby blue teacup and saucer. Thanks for sharing with SYC.
