Pink Saturday!

Hello Dear Ones and welcome to Pink Saturday.
This wonderful Pinkness is hosted by the most Pinkest of Pink Ones, Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/. Pop on over and you can see many more Pink One

Today I would love to show you some little Pink 'what nots' as my Mother would call them...


Aren't these very sweet and Pink!? Well, they belonged to my grandmother. She passed away when I was three years old ~ that was 53 years ago! Yes, I know, I'm old...but I'm so very Pink and young at heart! I really don't remember her, I'm so sorry to say, but I have inherited her little Pink 'what nots'. They're really very small, the largest being about 5 inches high. I wonder where my grandmother got these ~ did she buy them or were they given to her as gifts? She never realized her baby granddaughter would have these in her home so many many years later. I know they're small, I know they're not very expensive, but I'm very proud and thankful to have these little Pink 'what nots' from my grandmother.
So I bring a little Pink nostaglia to you today.

uh oh...
Chloe Dawn!! You've been in Mommy's lipstick!! Oh, well, she does look charming, doesn't she? She always wants to contribute to Pink Saturday. So blow Pink kisses my precious little One...mawah...


I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~


This Kiss



I don’t want another heartbreak

I don’t need another turn to cry

I don’t want to learn the hard way

Baby, hello, oh, no, goodbye

But you got me like a rocket

Shooting straight across the sky

It’s the way you love me

It’s a feeling like this

It’s centrifugal motion

It’s perpetual bliss

It’s that pivotal moment

It’s impossible

This kiss, this kiss (Unstoppable)

This kiss, this kiss

Cinderella said to Snow White

How does love get so off course

All I wanted was a white knight

With a good heart, soft touch, fast horse

Ride me off into the sunset

Baby, I’m forever yours

It’s the way you love me

It’s a feeling like this

It’s centrifugal motion

It’s perpetual bliss

It’s that pivotal moment

It’s unthinkable

This kiss, this kiss (Unsinkable)

This kiss, this kiss

You can kiss me in the moonlight

On the rooftop under the sky

You can kiss me with the windows open

While the rain comes pouring inside

Kiss me in sweet slow motion

Let’s let every thing slide

You got me floating, you got me flying

It’s the way you love me

It’s a feeling like this

It’s centrifugal motion

It’s perpetual bliss It’s that pivotal moment

It’s subliminal

This kiss, this kiss (It’s Criminal)

This kiss, this kiss

~ sung by Faith Hill

  6. Well, Miss Texas, now I know that you have some Northern roots as "what-nots" are a Northern tag. (Note please, that Shirl's mom used that expression as did my mom who was born and raised in PA.

  10. Happy Pink Saturday, Shelia.

    I imagine your grandmother would be so pleased that her granddaughter treasures these pretty little things. They are a special reminder of someone that would have loved you very much.

    Kisses to Chloe Dawn. And, you're not old because if you are that means I am, too. And, I'm definitely not. ;-)

  12. Those are beautiful. Those are the kind of little pretties I LOOK for when I'm out and about. How special that yours belonged to your Grandmother. OMGosh I love them. So Pretty. By the way I really was going to put pink bows on my dog for PINK Saturday but ended up doing something else..so I laughed when I saw yours. Great ladies think alike. LOL. Wendy

  18. I grew up hearing pretties referred to as "what nots." And that is an apt term--better than "accessories." Oh, the good old days. Your vases are beautiful--so full of detail.

  19. Hi Shelia :)

  20. In my family, we always called them knick knacks. Those are so pretty, and made especially precious because they belonged to your grandma. I'm sure she'd be pleased that even if you don't remember her, that she is thought of when you look at her pretty things!

    Love the ribbons and the kissing lips on Chloe Dawn! She looks almost good enough to kiss...wait, nah. I'll pass, lol.
