Happy PINK Saturday!
I have a couple of things to show this week. This gorgeous vase belonged to my mother-in-law and my husband wanted it when his parents passed away. We've both always loved it's soft pink color and detail...the sweet faced cherubs, the roses - especially the one perfect pink rose bud spilled over inside the vase, the delicate handle and spout, the lacy top edge and base.
The PINK handle is also gilded...so delicate.
I've always loved the rosy angels clinging to the vines.
As posted Wednesday, CeeKay of Thinkin' of Home has been visiting me for the last week. Today we spent the day downtown, enjoying High Tea and shopping. I knew she would love this precious store, Muriel's Doll House. It was pretty bright out today so you can't really see the true pink of the store outside, but it is painted entirely pink with white gingerbread trim, door, and roof. The inside of Muriel's is adorable and wall to wall full with dolls of every kind. There are many replicas of vintage toys and games to choose from - and who could forget about the gorgeous doll houses! My husband and I purchased Madam Alexander baby dolls for both our granddaughters at Muriel's for their first birthday gifts. On our own daughter's first birthday she was presented with a Madam Alexander doll, Victoria. We bought the very same Victoria for her girls. It was fun to show CeeKay Muriel's since it is a town treasure - and after all, we are just grown up pink girls ourselves!
