The last of the Pink Fur

Well-I've been wearing something fur for the past month and I'm ready to move onto something else-red and pink for February-no more fur-well, maybe if I had some more pink fur items(I only have about five fur pink items to wear.) I bought this fur vest about 3 years ago a thrift store -it also had a smaller size(I think the one I bought was a kids one too-just in a large) so I bought the smaller one for my neice so we could wear them together-I love finding items that kinda match hers-since I don't have any kids of my own and everyone says she's a lot like me. I already have her birthday presents(for May 16th-I know I always like to plan ahead!) and one of the items is a shirt made with the same material as a shirt I have-of course -in pink! Hope she's not reading this! Do eight year old's follow blogs?

Abner The Bear

A couple of weeks ago I went thrift shopping on a Sunday and found a couple of goodies and this big, pink bear in the middle was one of them. I wanted to show you all three bears so you could see how big he is. He's pink and black and was only $12!!!! I don't run across these vintage bears very often. He had a little note pinned to him and this is what it said...........

My name is Abner and I am over 50 years old and need a nice retirement home(so of course-that's with me!)

Miss Kitty

Well here she is -my very first pet in my whole life(my mom wouldn't let us have pets growing up-but that's a sad story and not her fault!). So a year after my husband and I were married a guy from work needed to get rid of a cat(I don't like saying it that way) because his daughter was pregnant(her cat) and she wouldn't be able to take care of it(don't understand that either!) So I went over and she was the most beautiful angora (I think around 1 year old)cat I had ever seen! We brought her home and she hid for the first day and then developed this attitute-I'm a queen, a diva, don't get in my way... in fact.. she hissed when I even walked by her. She preceded to let all the other animals know who was boss for the next 16 years. She's never really lets me pet her and she's sooo soft(although her hairs getting worse this last year). She's taken to sitting on my lap at the computer(she there right now!) in her last year. I fear the end is near and it scares me... I love her soooooooooo much. There will never be another Miss Kitty. She has the most bitchy attitude that I love. And when she walks her tail goes up like one of those really fluffy feathers and just glides around and I will tell her that she looks like she has white go-go boots on(her fur is shorter on the bottom half of her legs!). I've taken to spoiling her as much as possible these days-feeding her all wet food and just kissing and petting her as much as possible-until she hisses and want to jump down. God's special gifts to us-love them as much as we can while they're here!

Icicle Tree

I picked this tree up a few years back at the local thrift store for $10. I love how it's more of a winter item than a Christmas tree. I'm still tempted to put on some pink snowflake ornaments though!

Barbie Motor home

Stopped by the Salvation Army yesterday-didn't find much for me-but I did for Miss Fashionistas Barbie-a motor home her size(unlike the last one I found- And I got it for only $1.70-now that's a bargain! I think I'm going to have to make her a little bed!?!
Even a pink bathroom!
No really-I bought this for my nieces to play with when we go camping-of course-I'll keep it in my Pink camper-just in case I decide I want to play!

Fun Gumball Display

Isn't this the cutest little display? I bought these fun pink candy shaped ornaments after christmas at Walmart and hadn't any idea what to do with them-and then I spyed this gumball display I got when I bought some perfume a couple of weeks ago! Can you see the little gumball snow globe with the little skater girl. I bought it several years ago and just ran across it-I think they're fun paired together!
When I bought the perfume- I got this cute pink puffy purse! And below is the way the perfume came-it was only $30-a real steal for 3 bottles of perfume and a cute display and a pink purse!

Fun Magnets

Picked up these fun magnets at the antique mall the other day for $2.00 for my office(I think I'm getting younger instead of older!). I couldn't resist them and since I don't do this cutsy stuff at home-I have been taking it to work! I thought these drink ones were so neat!
Hope you're having a great weekend!

My PInk Furry Sasquatch Boots

I saw these fun pink boots in a friend's Victoria Secret Catalog several years ago at work-I loved them at first site-but couldn't see parting with $130 for them(I usually don't spend that much on shoes-let alone pink furry boots)! I went home that night and couldn't get the darned things off my mind(obsessive I think) so I decided to bite the bullet and order the things-but when I got to work-the catalog had been thrown in the trash and I had no ordering number and it wasn't available on line! Well the hunt in me went in over-drive and I called Victoria Secret and we had to hunt for the number-apparently they weren't very popular and they weren't available-back-order for 2 month(but I wanted them now-this winter to wear!) They finally came in Mid February and I usually only get them out and wear them once a year( I want to enjoy them for years!) Sometimes I pair them with my hot pink Sasquatch T-shirt but I couldn't locate it that day. They are really warm though and they draw a lot of stares. I wore them with jeans to work and then changed into a skirt with tights and a fun white sweater-they looked huge then-Girls-we gotta have fun!!!!

Wish it were Pink Radio

I picked up this radio last Saturday when I was antiquing. I've been looking for a vintage pink one(passed one up at our mall for $40 a few years back). Truth be told, I have two pink new retro looking ones already, so I don't need another pink one. I bought this one to go in my new camper-it matches the stripes! I paid only $4.00 for it(it doesn't work so my dad will have to see if he can fix it!). It's fun looking though and worth the price. I'm joining Vintage Thingie Thursday at

Pink Striped Hat Box

Found this last Saturday when I went antiquing with a new friend-had to have it-$8.00. Saw a couple of others that I will probably be going back for. Always looking for storage this time of year and these fit two of my requirements-pink and old!

I've given myself a challenge for the next couple of weeks to go through my house and really look at what I can part with -so far-I've came up with 5 items each nite for the past 3 nites-not bad and I haven't even started on the really bad(crowded) rooms. I really need to do this with all the goodies that I've been bringing in!

No excuses-but I love to have another day!

Pink Mitten Collection

Love these two toned ones!
I thought I would share with you my vintage children's pink mitten collection. Of course I love all children's mittens( ), but the pink one's are extra special! This pair is the pinkest of them all! These are the ones Tete bought me for Christmas!

I picked these up this fall for only $3 and I hang them on the doorknob!

I don't think these are old-but they're fun!

And the best for last- I bought this baby outfit several years ago at an antique store and had forgot about it. The set was packed away in a pink box! Isn't it precious!

I'm joining Tete's Second Hand Collection at
