Pink Antiques

Off to the Antique show today at the local arts & cultural center, and on the look-out for a Mary Poppins style carpet-bag.  Came away without the carpetbag – but, not a few treasures, to be sure!  Stay tuned in upcoming teatime posts for more on that!

However, for my pinks today, a few pink antiques that made me smile.

I always think of my mom when I see lady shoes like this.  She loved shoes . . .

A stylish lady . . .

A bathing lady – drowning, it would seem – in rose petals . . .

A tea lady . . .

Glassware for days . . .

Floods and floods of china and ceramics . . .

Quilts to keep you cozy . . .

Useful gadgets from yesteryear . . .

And, a whimsical character or two keeping the child in your heart alive.

Not to mention a PINK IDEA or two for re-purposing vintage finds . . .

Happy Pink Saturday!

Sharing my Pink Antiques today with Beverly on Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.



  1. Happy Pink Saturday Kathryn, Thanks for sharing all those lovely pinks. I keep thinking about the Mary Poppins carpet bag and all the things she kept inside. My favorite was the floor lamp. Joyous Wishes, Linda

  3. I love those pink striped glasses! Fun things!

  4. Happy Pink Saturday, Kathy.

    Wow! That was a great show. I wonder if that is a Blue Ridge Pottery plate in the photo eleven up from the bottom. It just might have had to come home with me.

  5. All the pinks spectacular, I so love that little pink character. Happy Pink Sat.

  7. Dearest Miss Kathy, what a very fin assortment of pink treasures! I love antique shows and this one looks like a winner. I adore the quilt on the table…just beautiful. Such fun PINK items. Thanks for sharing.
    How is our daughter feeling?
    Much love, Linda

  8. Happy Pink Saturday….looks like some charming finds :)

  9. Since I’m a vintage dish nut and a pink freak, every one of those dishes were squeal worthy. (Especially the glassware shaped like baskets…love that.)

    The pink lady with the rosey cheeks reminds me of pictures that I have seen of my great grandmother. I never knew her. She was from what is now the Czech Republic.

  10. Ooooooh my, you are quite right! A bevvy (sp?) of oooh la la things for Bella Rosa. I certainly missed a good one. It was good though to recoop from my past week. Even though I was not the one who had surgery, I was wiped out!

    Thank you for sharing your pink antiques!

  11. Hi Kathy~
    Thank you so much for all you shared on Charles Dickens! I love your knowledge!! I wish that I could sit at your feet and listen to you tell stories – I know it is magnificent. On my Amazon wish list I have put down which Dickens book it is – I think it is the latter that you talked about. Now, I will have to get it. I am inspired…once again. =0)

I would love to hear from you--share your thoughts!
