A little pink here and there.....

I am a lover of vintage pottery and seem to have gathered quite a bit of it over the years. This piece has the look of Majolica so I have displayed it with some of that I have collected over the years.

The colors of the Majolica can be dark but there always seems to be a touch of brightness.

We head back to Maine very soon. I always have mixed emotions. I have had such a good time this year with my friends. We have "antiqued" with some and I have knit with others. We have traveled and cooked and it has been fun. Two of our friends from Maine have moved back to Florida and they will be missed in Maine.

I have collected a bit of McCoy over the last few years. I also like Hull and Weller. Actually I like most vintage pottery.

I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday as it enters its fifth year. I hope you will stop by and say hello.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Pink Flowers for a Birthday Blog

 Tomorrow is Pink Saturday's 4th Birthday and I am joining Beverly for her party at How Sweet the Sound. I have participated in this blog event for 3 years. I hope you will join the party.

It only seems appropriate to have some pictures of pink flowers, so here are a few I have taken over the last few years.

I love the different shades of pink.

Happy Birthday Pink Saturday!

Sweet Talk

If you have been a follower of my blog, you will know that I am a lover of food, flowers, quilts and photography. More recently I have been knitting. I think the knitting has caused quite a case of 
nostalgia and Mother's Day has only intensified these feelings. Perhaps my 50th High School reunion is having some input as well.

My mother was a woman of routine and habit. When she found a product she loved, it was chosen forever. Revlon's Sweet Talk was her color. I cannot remember her ever having another color lipstick or nail polish. I can see her sitting at the kitchen table doing her nails before an evening in the city to see a wonderful musical on Broadway. Hello Dolly was a favorite and that song was requested by my dad at dances they attended.

Her dress was similar in color to the one in the advertisement at the top of the page but was  a very dressy shirtwaist with a lapel and a very full skirt. She wore a little hat with a veil. She shoes were black suede pumps and the pocketbook matched. My sister and I thought she looked beautiful.


The ad said that this color will give you a really new personality. Revlon introduced this color in 1948. You can read about Revlon here.

The advertisement shown above was found on both eBay and Etsy.

I had hoped to post this yesterday but the day got away. I miss her more and more each year. Happy Mother's Day.
