Pink Saturday June 14th, 2014

Its been a REALLY long time since I have participated in Pink Saturday, so here goes!
Ed and I moved last October into a smaller duplex, and before that my Mom had also downsized. So, as much as we got rid of, trying to downsize, Mom sent over MORE family things to fill us back up again :) I am STILL unpacking if you can believe that. The dining room is almost done. I need to fit the slipcovers to the chairs and iron and display my linens to hang on a rack in there. Miss Addie Belle, my mannequin that Ed got me for under $10 about 4 years ago fits nicely in here. Why not? :)
 He was SO proud that he found her for me. And she is stamped Paris France on her belly. Makes you wonder how she came to be in Las Vegas? She is wearing an old ballet dress, that I added lace to that my Great Grandmother tatted. The collar around her neck is another of GG's handiwork's. I need to iron her skirt, so I will show you closeups of her another time.The chocolate pot was hers as well. :)
This pretty casserole was also from Mom, as was the plate. Funny thing, I had bought these little almost matching berry bowls about ten years ago and it never registered that they were the SAME roses. Rare for hand painted china from the 30's. :) Love them :)

Well, these are my Pinks ( with a bit of blue :) ) this week. Please go say Hi to Miss Beverly :)

I just want to thank you again, for the kind words, prayers and cyber hugs you have sent me regarding the loss of my sweet Ed. I miss him more than you could know.........

Hello Rhea, Your little house is so pretty. Love all the things that were your grandma's and Mothers.
It was very hard for me to downsize my Mothers things. But I have done so little by little. There are a few things I got rid of first thing,wish now I had waited until my mind and heart had excepted it a little more.
I hope you are feeling better than you were,the last few time I visited with you ?
I have had 2 back surgeries and one neck surgery. I am starting to feel better, silly me now I have arthritis in all my joints.
I am so glad your are blogging when you can. As you see I have not blogged much.
Sending love and Prayers for you Sweet Friend. Hugs, Mary

How beautiful! Those hand-painted pieces are gorgeous and sure look like they go together, don't they? I love the slipcover idea for your chairs. Gives me an idea!

Oh what a beautiful room with so many pretties. I love the romantic feel. I want more white and pink in my house. I have a pink room. It's me, but not nearly as fluffy as this! Love it!

Hi, Rhea, dear friend,

Beverly said...

I know that I am months and months late coming to visit your post, but I marked it when I saw it because I didn't want to miss the opportunity to let you know how often I think of you.

Years have passed, but I always think of you as one of our early "pinkies" group. I am so glad you chose to join us for Pink Saturday, and I hope you will come back again. You will find many of your old friends and some new ones, too.

I am so sorry to learn about your husband. I will keep you close in my heart and prayers.

And, I am equally happy to learn that you are going to be blessed with a wonderful new life to love and treasure.♥
