Paulette from http://cheerfulthriftydoor.blogspot.com/ sent me the most wonderful gift-6 vintage glasses and a revolving trivet tray-pink and fabulous. I still cannot believe the generosity and thoughtfulness from her-she visited my blog and saw that I LOVE pink items and had these and offered to send them to me. She wrapped each glass carefully in bubble wrap and a vintage napkin. She also sent me a wonderful Christmas card with a picture of her and her grandchildren. I wish I could meet her and hug her in person! I can't wait to display them! Thank you soooooo very much Paulette and I will be getting something to you soon!
See the other present my sis bought for me!!! I was so excited since I had looked at these on Amazon several times. She bought this off the facebook garage sale site-pretty neat! Maggie Mae will love it! So do I!
See what one of my items my little sis bought me for Christmas-Love, Love, Love it. Now I'm going to be looking for some pink tools to fill it. I bought a tool kit this past fall so I need to find out what I still need. And what projects I can tackle.....is that scary!
I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas Day!!! I'm trying to concentrate on the reason for the season-the Birth of Jesus Christ! After a long, hard night of not enough sleep and awful thoughts(that I won't go into)-the only thing that really helps is knowing that Christ is always there. Merry Christmas to you all!
Here's the other washing machine I got last week on my birthday. I thought it was funny how I would find two-even though this one is extremely small. It was too cute to pass up for the price! I'm joining Pink Saturday at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
I've seen so many pics on ebay, pinterest, and blogs with this pink pyrex that I couldn't seem to find anywhere! I found two pieces last Wednesday on my birthday antique trip and one yesterday! I think I've got a new collection-and they're all different pieces!
I came home yesterday beat down by mostly mad customers to find that my sister-in-law had sent home an early Christmas gift. What could be inside? Pink Large Vintage Christmas balls!!!! Does she know me or what? How fun and wonderful is that-in their original box!!!
This was what was waiting for me when I got home from work at 12:30 am last nite. My oldest niece and my mother had made these especially for a late night snack for me. ( I stayed at my mother's house since I didn't get off till midnite and had to be back at work at 7:30 the next day and live 30 minutes from work). What a sweet gesture since my days haven't been the most pleasant-people can be very rude and mean during the holidays-working retail is certainly challenging. Anyway, these really perked me up!
Well here she is...my pink Birthday gift! My husband was like OH No you want that?! I said YES-I have to have it!!!! Where are you going to put it and what are you going to do with it he said? I don't know -but I love it! I'm joining Pink Saturday at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/
I had a great day antiquing today for my birthday. My husband drove 277 miles to take me to several new places. I didn't find any pink Christmas and I was a little disappointed about that, but will be posting some of my finds for the next few days. One item is so large we have to go back to get it-and it's pink-but you'll never guess what it is. I've never seen one like it and was so excited when I saw it. Anyway, I did pick these pink(I know they don't look pink, but they are!) metal frigidaire ice cube trays. They were only $1.00 each so I had to get them!
A good friend from work surprised me right before I left work and brought me these beautiful and yummy cupcakes. Pink of course with pink sprinkles and swirly roses and even an antique calling card in the middle! I LOVED it! Here she is -you've probably seen her before on this blog-Bre-multi-talented girl!
I've been searching for months trying to figure out where I saw these. I checked Kohls, Amazon, and Carsons and finally found them online at Target. Has anyone used these? I'm ready to buy them and would like to know how good they are.
Remember the lady I told you about that brought me some pink ornaments the other day? Her name is Nancy and I'm convinced she's my Christmas angel. Not only because she keeps bringing me wonderful Christmas stuff(when I can't seem to find much on my own), but because she brings it when I'm feeling down. I don't know how she's doing it, but it sure has made me perk up a little and feel better. As Tete says-there are Christmas angels out there!
Pink sugar coated baskets with candy and a candy guy... Sugar frosted candy picks(some have pink candy!) A little elf with pink shirt and pink/red striped candy cane How fun are these!
Aren't these cute??? I haven't been able to find any vintage ornaments anywhere this year(I'm blaming it on Ann from Sentamental Life-she even said she'd bought them all). So I've resorted to plastic pink ones!!! What are you finding out there?
I was talking with a lady at work(she's a friend of my Mom's) about how I haven't been able to find any vintage pink ornaments this year. She was telling me how her mother has been wanting to get rid of some of her christmas ornaments and that she would go thru them and give some to me. This is what she brought me.... Some pink small balls. Can you see all the different ornaments-cupcakes, little victorian dresses, crochet snowflakes, little lace gloves, and so much more! I was so excited! This is exactly what I used to put on my victorian tree-I may have to get that out next year or put up a small tree this year!
I haven't been to Bath and Body for such a long time but when I got a coupon in the mail-I had to go and buy this pink sugarplum lotion! While I was there-I bought my favorite Vanilla Bean Noel lotion too! Lots of cute stuff out there!
