Antique Seven Sister's Rose Bush

This rose is really going crazy. I had bought one a few years ago that died within a year and took it back and luckily-they gave me another-and it's done great! It smells wonderful too(that's why I put it next to the outhouse!). It's called Seven Sisters because of the different colors in the rose.

I need to work on my close-up shots!

Pink Knives

I've told you that I'm crazy before-but this is really something to cut up about! I went to a garage sale a month back and they had all these pink plastic knives-but only knives. The owner says-you can use them camping-but come on-who really uses plastic knives-especially 4 packages of them. I can see forks or spoons, but not knives. And then I remembered. In the sale barn I've been trying to fill lots of jars with pink items. I have pink crayons, pink toothpicks, pink hair rollers, pink candles, pink pencils, etc-why not pink knives.

And they all fit perfectly!

Pink Cotton Candy

I'm bringing the Pink Cotton Candy to the Party!!!! I've been wanting a cotton candy machine for so long and we had this one at work. All you need is hard candy to make it work. You can mix flavors of candy too-like rootbeer candy with vanilla for rootbeer floats. This pink cotton candy was made with red/white peppermint candy-yummy!

Something's Fishy

What do you suppose this was used for? In a bathroom I'd guess. It has a little lid to put things in. I don't know what I'm going to do with it-guess I'll just stash it away!

Pink & White Striped Bags

I just had to order these fun bags to match my tent I bought last year. Going with my whole carnival/circus theme. I don't know what I'll put in them-but of course something fun. I can't wait to see all the stuff I've been collecting put together!

PInk/Turquoise Lollipops

How fun are these? I really want to have a carnival day at the barn-so I'm stocking up on candy and supplies. You'll be seeing some of the stuff I've found over the next week. I'm hoping to get my sister's kids to come out and dress up and sell pink candy!!! How many suckers to you think are here????? ........ 240 and I only paid $1.20 for them all!!!! I know I'm crazy now! I hit a 90% off Easter sale and bought so much stuff! I only spent $5.00 and got so much candy and Easter items for next year. I thought these were too fun to pass up. I think the kids will enjoy these-until they're sick of eating them!~

Vintage Pink Scale

I was lucky enough to pink this little scale up at a garage sale for only $.50. I've seen them on ebay and etsy-but who really wants a vintage scale anyway? I hadn't weighed myself since high school(and that's been a few years ago!). I've always just went on how I feel about myself and how my clothes feel on. I've always hated exersizing with a passion-until recently. I've had a whole mind change. I'm for the first time since high school-really trying to get active and tone up~! I bought 3 new bikini's(2 pink ones) and I want to feel good wearing them, so this scale may come in handy-and of course-it's more fun to weigh yourself when you're standing on something pink!

Retro Diner Picture Frame

Picked this up at the garage for only $ .25. There were several-wish I would have picked up a few more. I think it will look good on the table in my camper-or at this rate-I'll end up with a pink kitchen(don't tell my husband!). I've got more pic things to come for the kitchen!

Pink Vintage Jewelry Box

I scored this last week at a local thrift store for $2.00. It was marked down from $5.00. I started collecting these a couple of months ago. Love the pink inside on this one. They're great for storage for little things and they stack. And I like the little drawer in the front.

Pink /Black Spot Light

Didn't get much at the garage sales this weekend. Not many due to the rains and most of them were closed up when I took my lunch hour. I did get this pink lamp to take camping. I think it will come in handy outside when its dark. I can clip it to anything and with that cord-if we need to look for anything-I can move it around. Not bad for only $2.00!

Cupcake Potholder and Hand towel

I picked these up where I work for my camper. I think they are super cute!

Pink Cortex Flat Iron

My old curling iron took the last curl some time back and I've been looking around for a new one(pink of course)that would do a good job. A girl at work(who has long beautiful hair) suggested this one-a two in one combo-curl or straighten! She said she paid $200.00 for hers-and I got mine off Amazon for only $40.00. It came today-can't wait to try it out!

Vintage Ceramic Aladdin lamp planter???

I bought this unusual thingie-which looks like an Aladdin lamp. Possibly from the 60's. It was cheap and pink so I had to have it!

Pink Polka Dot Pet Carrier

I bought this carrier at a garage sales a couple of years back to take Maggie Mae in when we went places. Tried it once-she couldn't understand that she was supposed to stay inside the bag. Oh well-it's pink polka dot and it matches my new pink polka dot luggage(just like her Mommy-who says us people without out children aren't mommies!!!!)

Here's the side with ventalation holes-you can see I've got it stuffed full of Maggie Mae outfits!

Album Des Roses

I bought this album from a friend/fellow antique dealer for $25.00. I've never seen another one like it and I just love all the rose images inside. There isn't a date-but I would say the late 1800's. Index of Roses
