pinky post

This is a post about pink vintage things. I scavanged some pix from old posts, and added a few new. What is it about pink that is so appealing?? Is it because of pink flamingos?Whatever the reason, items like this pink Rubbermaid utensil organizer fly off the shelf much quicker than any other color. This one sold as soon as I listed it!
Of course
I went gaga over the pink couch and chair. And, until I get the pink tiled and fixtured bathroom I dream of, pink accesories will have to do!
This little atomizer is on my Etsy now. It is so delicate and looks perfect on a vintage vanity.The bed jacket is also a recent find, with little pink roses, it brings back memories of my childhood, when visiting friends in the hospital that wouldn't think of being seen without a proper bed jacket. Well, hope you are all "in the pink" this holiday weekend!

Well, it's been a while, so I wanted to say hello! Things are good in Zootsuitland, just working and staying busy in the garden, Mother's day and visiting with some friends I haven't seen in a while. Loving the great Spring weather, aren't you?? I have picked up some goodies and am especially glad I found another chenille bedspread ~ MINE DON'T LAST LONG WITH THESE HOUNDDOGS TOENAILS!! At least not in perfect shape...but they always make great pillows, etc! This one is pretty perfect, though!
Then, I found a few other things...

This cake carrier, my third red and white one, was only 3.00, so I had to get it, it's not perfect but cute.
This cute Rockabilly squaredance blouse with pearls and lace, loved the tag!

I swear this pattern is Joanie on Mad Men, or at least the inspiration for her!

comfy glider...my favorite napping spot
green beans
Back porch hamper/table
Glad it's almost the weekend!
