Pink

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.

See the sweet little PINK rose bud just inside the vase?

The PINK gilded spout on one side looks like a watering can.

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!

I can see why you both treasure that piece. It is just exquisite.

Muriel's sounds delightful. I have a Madame Alexander Victoria, too.

Kathy, did you post late? I can't believe you don't have comments on the most beautiful vase I have seen in a long time. Your description is wonderful as are your photos. Your husband has a good eye for wanting that gorgeous work of art.
The shop looks so cute and I think it is so special for you to purchase the M.A. Victoria for the girls.

Great post Kathy...Jeanne

What a beautiful vase. How lovely that you and you and husband were able to have that vase with its beauty and its memories. Its really lovely.

The dollhouses are such a nice idea. How special. I would like to do that with Madeline too. I have one I purchased for me years ago and I have never taken the time (and it would take time) to actually put it together. What a great idea.

Hope you have a lovely day.
