Pink Saturday #2...

Another Summer week has flown quickly by, and it is once again time for
Pink Saturday!
...hosted by Beverly, from How Sweet the Sound



Don't you just love old vintage radios? Check out this PINK Westinghouse one!
It was the beginning piece of my vintage radio collection, that never quite materialized! ;)




In case you are wondering what the "night stand" the radio rests on actually is...it is an old, antique safe.
It still has the original owner's name stenciled on it!
Now, there is an idea for Vintage Thingies Thursday, more pictures and the neat story behind the safe, to share! ...Stay tuned for that one! LOL!

Yesterday, the kids and I, went shopping for a few things to complete our lake house remodeling! Our first destination was Homegoods! ...my favorite store!

I snapped a few PINK pictures to share with you....

PINK elegant Waterford plates....


How cute is this??? For the life of me, I couldn't figure how to incorporate this precious PINK cake plate in my decor! It sure was hard to walk away and leave it behind!



Cute PINK Kitty Plates...

These aren't PINK, but this was the first display as you walked into Homegoods!

And what a WOW! impact the black & white pieces have! A little PINK would be quite striking thrown in the mix, wouldn't it???

Forgive me for really straying off the PINK path now, but the pictures below concluded our trip. My kids all-time favorite movie is NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM! They have watched it a gazillion times!

David was so excited when he found this statue, that resembled dum-dum from the movie.

And then I heard this a gazillion, and two times....

"dum-dum wants gum-gum"

"dum-dum, you better run-run"



So, that is what I am about to do...RUN off and hopefully finish painting, and put out my goodies from yesterday's shopping adventure!

Wishing all of you a Happy PINK Saturday! ~Rhonda

Hi Rhonda... sure was good to hear from you! This was such a fun post... I cannot understand why you left the PINK Poodle Skirt Cake Stand in the store?!!! Did you misplace my mailing address already?! ~dramatic sigh~ Love the PINK Radio, too, and the awesome bird lamp!! The black 'n white display made me think of your monogrammed window treatments... so pretty.

When you send the Poodle plate to me, please tuck David into the package as well... I'm a sucker for cutie~pie boys! Plus, I think he'd enjoy hanging out with the ferrets! Ahhhh... such are dreams! Glad y'all are doing alright and am sure you're anxious for the Lake House project to be complete. Your fourth of July celebration is going to be AWESOME!! Thanks for sharing the PINK and please have a terrific day! God bless...

~hugs 'n love~

Wish I had a Home Goods near me. I've seen that cakeplate at Marshall's and it's so cute. Impracticle, but cute. Nice post!

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

Hi Rhonda!
Love the pink radio! So cute and retro....

Don't you just love Home Goods? I was in one in Florida last week on vacation and couldn't buy anything because I had no room in my suitcase :-)

Cute pink radio!! What a fun shopping trip. That Waterford plate is gorgeous, isn't it? Looks like I would have a very hard time in that store. I haven't been shopping much lately.

But I am heading to MT for vacation soon. I do plenty of shopping there since I use the excuse of no sales tax to justify many purchases! LOL!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Vanessa Greenway said...

How nice Rhonda!! I haven't been back there since then. But we still planning on taking miss Luna with us for a family portrait! I love that place! Have fun!!! Hugs, Vanessa

Rhonda,

It's nice to meet you. North Carolina........ we thought we were going to move to New Bern, N.C.. We drove down there many times and loved the town. But then the floods came and overflowed the rivers and my husband changed his mind, besides it was a 9hr. drive back to Pa., where our kids and grandkids all live. So, we found De. and love it here too.

I'm so new at blogging, but hope in time I'll get the hang of it and post things that others will enjoy, as I've enjoyed looking around yours. Thanks for dropping by.

Hi Rhonda, thank you so much for the sweet comments that you have posted. I will be glad to give you the recipe for that pie, it is so good especially in the summer, it's a light and refreshing treat! I will do a green jadeite post just for you and Roxy and will include the recipe. It might take me a few weeks to get it together. I'm working on a charity thing right now and will have it up and running very soon. I will get a little break then. You can see from my posts that I take so many pics!!LOL Have a great week!
Blessings, Shirl

Hi Rhonda,
Love your pink collection of items. The cake plate really caught my eye.

David is a doll. Bet he has to beat the girls off with a stick...or will soon!

Susie Harris said...

Love the pink... I always have a hard time finding a place in my home for pink. I love the color but it just doesnt go with a thing. My poor daughter gets poured with pink. Her room is the only room in the house where I can fit it in... poor child. Not even sure if she likes the color. Im sure she will be asking for a big girl room soon, sigh... Susie H~

Bonita said...

The pink stuff is pretty and some of it is really cute retro looking, but I have to say that the black and white dishes just melted my heart. They are gorgeous!

Rae said...

I have the black and white salt and pepper shakers. LOVE them!!!
