Cris D'Arques-Durand.. Rosaline Pink Swirl Champagnes and other pink stuff...

On a recent shopping excursion with girlfriends.. 
we went to Blue Hills Antique Mall in Geronimo, Texas... 
and that is where I found these...
These truly elegant and timeless
stemmed Arcoroc (Cris D’Arques-Durand) wine glasses
in the discontinued Rosaline Pink Swirl pattern.

A set of 8, in perfect condition, champagne glasses...  $10...
yes, that's for the set... not per glass... 
I did the happy dance all the way home!
and just for good measure.. I found this pretty vintage pink salt shaker at
Beverly's Glory B's Cottage... 
I think the pattern is Pillar Optic... 
one of my favorite depression glass patterns... 
and since it was $3... well I just couldn't pass it up!
I'm joining Beverly for Pink Saturday... 
and this bunch of Pink Peonies... 
they're just for you as a little "thank you" for visiting me...  
down here in French Lique...

I will have to see how far that place is from me in Texas. I would love to go there if it has this kind of goodies.

Love these pretty pink stemware!! I am imagining delish parfaits in these for breakfast!!

Oh my thanks for pinning my pink soap! You are so ahead of me - I cannot figure out how to get the pin bookmark or whatever it is called on my page so I can start pinning things that I see that are not actually on Pinterest.

Bee blessed

Love all that PINK. And the prices are killing me. I bought some green today. Will have it on my blog soon. I think this Texas heat is driving prices down. Check out my Mexican tourist pottery.
