This is a sweet little tea cup. It is actually quite tiny. Maybe a demitasse cup size. About 25 years ago we lived next to a couple who had been through the Holocaust and survived. They kept to themselves in their tiny run down rental home and most of the neighborhood kind of ignored them. My kids were quite young at the time and the lady took a great liking to my oldest son. He would often disappear and of course we would find him at their house...drinking hot milk which he never drank at home from this cup with the pretty pink rose on it. Eventually we moved to where we are now but before we left the lady gave my son his tea cup as a memory.
This little china cow might not look like much in pictures but she has a prominent spot in my china cupboard as she is one of the only things I have left from my deceased Grandma. I have no idea where she got it from, probably a five and dime store somewhere. It has pink ears and a pink tuft of fur on it's head and also, although white, there is a pink shine to it. and the neatest part is the eyes...they are pink rhinestones that glisten!
I am going to end my post this week with a picture from my front flower bed...they weathered the snow, the frost, the rain and the hail, as you can see by their poor damaged leaves, but my bright pink primrose flowers have survived!! It is a welcome breathe of spring time! I hope the weather soon feels like spring too! Happy Pink Saturday and thanks for stopping by!

We found this "pink" Barbie in a Target store in Bellis Fair...she was only 10.00 but we both resisted the urge to buy her!
This cutie dressed all in pink came home with me...another blast from the past....and she still works! When you move her arm she cries.
This is a MIB Tutti doll from my era...in fact I once owned a doll just like this!! She is dressed in a pink jammie outfit and came with her sweet little bed!! If you click on the picture, I believe it will become larger so you can see her better. This lovely little dolly was $220.00 but the dealer said I could buy her for $170.00....I had to pass and make due with a photo as that was a bit high for my budget!! The dealer did kindly arrange her in the box so I could take a better picture. This fellow was very obliging. Some of the dealers at the doll show got very annoyed if you took a photo of their wears...why I am not sure....
This is Loretta (House Of Houben blog spot) and I with our newly found treasures...probably within the first 10 minutes of our arrival. Loretta found a Saucy Walker doll with perfect coloring and even still with her blush on and I found a Chatty Cathy. I am wearing my favorite color...PINK!
Lots of pink to behold in the picture below...lots of vintage dolls represented in this table full of dollies!
This "pretty in pink" doll came home with me, she is a German made Gotz doll and is quite large.
This vision in Pink is a "Ginny" doll and oh my yes, she also came home with me, I couldn't resist her in her "all in pink" beauty! I do not know much about Ginny dolls but I know Betty over at dayreamnworld blogspot collects them and I am sure she will let me know what she thinks of my new and first Ginny!
Well, that is it for this week, folks, thanks for stopping by and Happy Pink Saturday!

I can't believe it has almost been two weeks since I last posted. Life has gotten in the way lately it seems. I have been busy with kids and spring cleaning...sort of...and I had a delightful interlude last weekend when my girlfriend Loretta and I were lucky enough to have her hubby drive us to Tacoma Washington to the first doll show we have ever attended. It was a wonderful break. We shopped at various locations in Washington State on the way down and I must say, shopping in the US is so much fun!! I found some incredible buys on children's clothing for the little guy. I was also amazed to note the recession does not seem to be prevalent in Washington state as everywhere we went we found shoppers with baskets overflowing and the stores seemed to be full of eager shoppers.
Puyallip Doll Show!
