My Pink Truck

Did I have you fooled? I would love to have a pink truck, but my husband uses both our trucks for the farm and they're under the farm account. Not so sure he'd o.k. one of them being pink. I have thought of detailing the Black Ford Ranger with pink striped to match the camper though. I was at an antique store a couple of weeks ago and came across this little fun toy truck for $6. Couldn't pass it up. It will be fun to use at the holidays for a little display-mini pumkins, little Christmas trees, maybe with a little dip jar on a dessert table. You get the idea.
I'm linking up with Beverly for lots more pink:


  1. G'eve Rebecca ~ Dying to see where you take this truck! Darling ideas ...

    Have a lovely PS & holiday weekend.

  4. hi!!! wonderful truck !!!!thanks for sharing!

  5. Hi there Im loving all the pinkness please stop by my site too I love pink and wear it on the red carpets all the time! Cool site, I'm adding it to my blog roll!

  6. Happy Pink Saturday Rebecca Sweetie...
    Oh what a precious share today. I love the little Pink Tonka truck and I do NOT remember them ever making a pink one, so sweetie this has to be really old or else a one season deal they did at Christmas for the girls. I LOVE it.

    I can just see if full of pumpkins, or I was thinking even acorns. Cute, cute, cute, and how cute it would be on the table as a dip holder. You are so creative sweet friend.

    Oh thanks for sharing today. I have had so much fun, and by the way I love the idea of the pink stripes to match the camper. A little pink never hurt anyone.

    Hope your day is beautiful sweetie. Do something fun and creative today. Country hugs and much love, Sherry

  7. As always I love your Pink Saturday! I had to
    laugh as I owned a 1995 Ford Ranger pick up
    which I loved! When we moved to our new condo
    (painted pink, no joke!) they did not allow
    trucks, so it had to go. I told my husband
    I wanted to paint it pink just to park it out
    front, if even for a day! I never did! I
    still miss that truck!

    Thank you for a fun post!

  8. I think my previous post disappeared so I'll give it another try. (You may get Two)

    My son had a tonka truck that looked like this one in the late 1970's. Wonder where it is today?????? I love your display idea.

    Happy Pink Saturday.

  9. Yes, you did have me! I couldn't wait to see it with your creativity! What a cute little guy. I think he will be wonderful to use in so many ways, and maybe he will be the inspiration to get that pink truck started!
    Have a lovely Pink Saturday.

  10. It's fun to dream anyway, isn't it? I would love to have a pink VW Beetle to ride around in, just for fun. Hope you have a fantastic Pink Saturday!

  14. I've told my husband that my next vehicle should be a truck! I think pink would be perfect!

  19. Love your ideas!! Hope you have a great weekend. Keep thinkin' pink!!

  20. Hi! Nice pink truck, lovely!

    Hapopy pink saturday!


  21. I see nothig wrong with a pink ranger - sold Ford's for 7 yrs - only one Pink truck - it belonged to a vet student - it was sweet and totally fit her. It was a 20 yr old F150!

  22. I suggest you leave your hubby's trucks alone. These fellows have a passion for their trucks. Just redo this little toy and share it later on.

  23. Hi Pink Rebecca, what a cute truck, I'm sure my boys had the same type when they were little..I can't wait to see how you use it..I love the idea of pumpkins in it..
    thank you so much for your sweet comments today, I am very sorry about your uncle..its not easy but God has a plan..take care and hugs,

  24. I have used toy trucks for use on the buffet table as well as plant pots. I have not seen a pink one before, that is so perfect. Thanks for stopping by place and sharing your thoughts. I have to tell you that I just love your blog background. So cool.

  25. HI Rebecca! OH, that is a darling little pink truck and how sweet you bought it for yourself! Pop some Barbies in the bed and go to town!! :)
    Thank you so much for popping in to see me.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  30. Listen sweets paint it pink...I tease my husband that when we are old our house will be painted pink on the outside and because he already can't see that well, he will never know. LOL Love the little truck.

  31. Happy belated PINK Saturday
    Well wouldn't that be something if your hubby drove a pink truck like that...hmmm...probably a good idea this is just a truck you picked up while thrifting...or antiquing. It is sooo sweet and I bet you'll have a great display with it.
    it was so nice to have you visit me...hope you'll be back again..soon.

  32. I love to visit you, I love all your pink stuff, I have an old jeep that we kept when we bought the new SUV, and I want to paint it Pink, but I don't think Hubby will let me. I would love to have an old pink pickup, we live on a farm too.
    Have a great Week
