Pink Saturday!

In our home here in the UK I don't really have an awful lot of pinkness. But it just so happened that I went to a jumble sale this morning and a couple of pink things jumped out at me.

I love the beautiful, shiny, satiny 50s curtain fabrics, so I had to get this one, even though it was tiny and falling to bits. Still, there are a few small areas which can be saved and the deep pink is just too delicious -

Isn't this little hand towel ever so sweet with it gorgeous tatted lace edging?

And I just fell for this frothy little number, almost literally, lol, because jumble sales are highly dangerous! Anybody but the Brits amongst you probably have no idea what I am talking about, lets just say its probably something like a 90% off sale in your most favourite ever store, with a million other people trying to get to the stuff as well -

I would think this is from the 60s, and such a gorgeous icecream pink

just look at these sweet little puff sleeves -

I know it will look just great hanging on the wardrobe in the pink bedroom in our cottage in France

Thats all the pinkness I can show you today. I am linking this post to the wonderful Pink Saturday party over at How Sweet the Sound. Check out all the fabulous pink loveliness, you'll be drooling for sure.

I wish you all a lovely weekend, toodlepip xxx

I don't have a lot of pinkness either but I DO love it! You pink goodness is wonderful, Liz! I LOVE the tatted lace edge on the towel! Beautiful for a collage! ;)
And yes, I can picture the soft pink gown hanging up in your pink room in France!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful pink treasures.
Happy Pink Saturday.

I went to an estate sale this morning, but I think a "jumble sale" sounds like so much more fun- love all the pretty (and frothy) pinks you found.

Sarah - Red Gingham said...

Could you not model that pretty little nightdress for us?!! It's absolutely beautiful! Love that handtowel as well. So pretty and feminine. You really do find the nicest things at your sales. I'd love to see you in action!!

Oooooh, the fabric and the dress are loooovely, but I just love the pink tatting on that handtowel!! I love to collect handiwork from days past, I really appreciate the time and talent those women put into making something useful into something beautiful.
