Pink Saturday... Pink Junkin' too...

While junkin' with Candy earlier in the week... I posted about this pretty little Fenton Sherbet that I found at Twice Blessed in San Marcos...

but of course... in the past couple of weeks... I've found a few other pink treasures... and I've been saving them to share with you at Miss Beverly's Pink Saturday... when you leave French Lique, visit Beverly for more Pink Saturday!

How about this cute little framed picture of a pretty pink shoe from Goodwill...


or this fabulous find... pretty pink wine glasses... after I got them home and washed them... I noticed there was a word embossed on the bottom of the glass... hummmm what's that say... why yes! it says... FRANCE! Now that's the kind of surprize I really like! Thank you Salvation Army Store!


and on a dusty bottom shelf at the Silver Center Thrift Shop in Seguin... I found this pretty plate (cabbage leaf design) and bowl... washed it... dried it... and then... Holy-smokey! Made in Italy! How sweet is that! Pink and Italian! Some sweet little junkin' finds... total bill... less than $10. (including the Fenton sherbet!) Pink from around the world... We got some mighty good junkin' places down here in French Lique!

Oh Dixie!
These are wonderful pink finds. I love this post. The pink glasses that you found, I have the complete set of glasses, coffee cups, bowls and plates, the whole set. I got them for our wedding 34 years ago. I absolutely love them.
I was so tickled to see that someone else out there loved them as much as I did. They just sparkle in the china cabinet. You'll have to be watching for the rest of the set. The cabbage bowl and plate and the little shoe are also devine. Happy Pink Saturday. Please stop by and say hi. Country Hugs, Sherry

Great finds Dixie! I love the glasses. And glory be, we finally got some rain on Thursday - did you leave your car windows open lol! We got a whole inch and a half. My car seats were wet, I was wet from closing the car windows and it was glorious! I'm sure our clients wondered who that crazy woman jumping in the puddles was! Have a wonderful weekend. Kathy

Another rainy and cloudy and dark weekend. I fear that summer is not coming to northern Michigan this year...sigh.

With that in mind, Pink Saturday is a day that cheers me up and allows me to share a wider world than my gloomy portion.

♥Thank you so much for participating this week because it made my day just a little brighter♥

Happy PS, Dixie! Ok, this is so ironic, I found four of the same glasses at the Salvation Army a few weeks ago (posted my find) here in the SF Bay Area. We were sure lucky!

Have a great weekend!

Great finds, Dixie! I have those pink goblets, circa mid 1980's.
