I'm In ~ Pink Saturday


I'm joining in on the fun of Pink Saturday hosted by Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound, that is until my pink runs out. To participate you have to email Beverly, she will then add your name to her list. Now if you've seen my kitchen you've seen this platter, I fell in love with the large pink flower, I've never used the platter for anything but as a display but I just love how it holds it's own on the counter.

This dish I do use, I use it for fruit , nuts, candy etc. The both of them fit this counter perfectly.

This is the shelf above the window at my kitchen sink, it houses the other two pieces that go with the set, a pitcher and a canister. They all have the lovely pink flower. I bought this set at Big Lots about 5yrs ago. They don't have things like this anymore at Big Lots.

Last but certainly not least my Pink Flamingo, I love this lamp. It's metal and sits on a marble base. I've had it about 10 years, and purchased it at Stein Mart. I had a choice between it and a Rooster with the same base but a white globe. I wanted them both but, I really loved the flamingo. It cost me 100.00, and it weighs about 7lbs. He sits in my living room.
Forgive me that I won't be here today to visit with other Pink Saturday participants, my husband and I have made plans that will keep us out all day but, I will visit as much as I can in the days to follow. Deb

Hi Deb... You sure did an impressive post for your first Pink Saturday! I loved the pieces that you found at Big Lots... such beauty! Now, that Flamingo lamp of yours is simply awesome! You know, I am a Rooster lover, but I also have a soft spot in my heart for Flamingo's... picking just one would've been hard for me to do! I see plenty of nice Rooster lamps out 'n about... but never have I seen this pretty Flamingo of yours! Love It!

I hope you're doing well and that you and your sweet Husband have a wonderful day... God bless...

Hi Deb :)

I've only been in Big Lots one time and I honestly would rather hang out in GoodWill. There was nothing as nice as your find from there. It must have changed... hmmm...

I loved that dog washing story! Aren't they funny after a bath? LOL

hugs,

Have fun on your day out with your hubby!

Debbbbb, I'm still thinking about yesterday's post and chuckling! I've GOT to show that one to hubs later today, chickee. Soooooo funny... I wouldn't have tipped that bozo either...... You should have stood there with a straight face and asked,"Do you want me to SHAMPOO the dog, too?!?!?! LOL
Smoochies,
Connie

Hi Deb!

Lovely Pink Saturday post. Very pretty dishes and lamp.

I bought a rattan bombe chest and a small bedside chest, to match, at Big Lots about 5 years ago. That was my best find ever, at that store. Our BL's seem to have all closed. The bombe chest is in our room at the lake. It was quite a deal.

What a pretty plate and dish! Don't you just love Big Lots? There is one here in my town and I love going there. Sometimes the stuff isn't so great, and other times I can get a great deal. That is the most unique flamingo lamp I've seen, and really lovely!

Hope you enjoyed Pink Saturday! I was gone most of the day too, then spent until evening getting posts around about my day.

Hi there...well, let me introduce myself to you...I'm Brown-Eyes and I think we have alot in common. I lost my only child eight years ago and even though I was raised in the church in my younger years, I had drifted as an adult...but the loss brought me back into the fold...Thank you Jesus! Anywhooo, I think I found your blog through BJ of SWEET NOTHINGS but I'm not sure. I just started my "beginner's blog" and invite you to stop by ... :-) Brown-Eyes

Wendy said...

Hi Deb, Your minipoo is so adorable!! I like your pink dishes they make me think of my sister, she loves to collect dishes. she would love these!! Have a great night!~Wendy

Kimba said...

Deb, I laughed out loud when I saw your dog pictures. Now THAT'S a bad hair day!

I've been so out of the loop with packing, moving and now unpacking. I'm so sorry to hear about your father's passing. I'm so glad that you have the comfort of knowing he is with Jesus now.

I lost my dad 3 years ago and I very clearly remember the waves of grief. One minute you're OK. The next you're not. I know I'm late but I will pray for you and you're family tonight.
