Pink Saturday Post....

Welcome to Pink Saturday!
~Graciously hosted by Beverly, from How Sweet the Sound~
The skies are gray here, but beautiful nonetheless, ... we needed the rain terribly!
My "pinkness" to share with you today, is this sweet, delicate antique crescent plate.
The gold border and little flowers are hand~painted.

Yesterday, I went into the "big town," to run errands. One of them, to find a birthday present for my mom. She is not a big shopper, but her favorite store is Pier One. If she needs any decor, she heads there...and there alone! :)

Pier One is having a huge storewide sale, alot of things on clearance. Ashley found the little 5" PINK Orchid below for mom, for $2. It was half~price. I wish I had stock~piled a few for teacher's Christmas gifts! I ended up just getting her a gift card! LOL!

Other Thrifty Finds for the Day...

The aqua blue candle was marked down to $4, and is the perfect compliment to the dish and glass rocks, I found at Big Lots last week. This accessory set is destined for the newly improved lake house bathroom! :)

Vanessa, at Vanilla Lavender did an interesting feature on urns in one of her posts last week. I found this one at the Goodwill, and thought it would be perfect, spray painted black and filled with colorful pumpkins and gourds this fall!

The brass ink set, was a find at a Rescue Mission Thrift Store.
There were not a lot of treasures to be found yesterday, but as always the hunt was
a pleasurable adenture!

Wishing you all a Happy and Blessed PINK Saturday!

Now, I'm off to check out other PINK cheer! ~Rhonda

Happy Pink Saturday to you, Rhonda.

That crescent dish is so pretty and dainty. The finish looks like satin glass.

I like your idea about the urns - that will look great.

Hi Rhonda,
I love the pink dish and all the other goodies you picked up. You did good girl!

Shayla said...

That is a sweet plate. I wonder what era it is? The handpainted flowers make it seem quite old, but then the shape throws me off. I'm stumped. Do you know?

Also loved your little ink stand find :)

Afternoon Rhonda! Oh, what a pretty little pink dish! It looks antique. Love your other finds from Pier One. I absolutely love their candles - they actually smell good when you get them home and light them. lol Thanks for popping in to see me for Pink Saturday! I'm going to like this. I will be more normal next time, I promise!!

Be a pink sweetie today,
