PINK SATURDAY!



These Saturday's seem to keep coming faster and faster!!! I always heard time seems to go quicker as one gets older and I do believe it is so!! I missed last Pink Saturday as I was away at a doll show in Washington state...such fun! Scroll down to Thursday's entry for the story of that outing if you are interested in knowing more! Thanks once again to Beverly of "How Sweet The Sound" for hosting the Pink Saturday event and if you are interested in taking part or viewing the entries for this week, please click on the Pink Saturday link on my sidebar and it should take you to Beverly's site and the list of this weeks participants! On our trip to Washington State I took a few "pink" pictures to share.
First picture up is a store we found in Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham Washington!! Note the store's name....perfect for the day!!
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!

Great pinks, Linda! I love all those dolls. Your Ginny is darling. It was a terrific and fun weekend! I completely forgot to email Beverly back so no pinks for me! Oops...first time I've forgotten...

Look at those dolls! :-) My fave is the "pretty in pink" doll (the second to the last picture) with her long her :-)She can really capture one's heart.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Great pinks. Such beautiful dolls.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Linda.

Ah, you should meet my mother. We have hundreds of dolls. In fact, she wants me to start selling them, but I just don't have the time.

I've got my Ginny doll. ;-)

Betty (picture circa 1954) said...

Great pictures! I'm not sure why the doll dealers would object to pictures either. I can understand people at craft shows and art shows objecting, but most of the dolls are older and weren't made by the sellers. I can't think of a reason why it would bother them.

Your Ginny is very cute and very pink! She's from the Dakin era. Dakin owned the Vogue Doll Company from 1986-1995. Just a warning...don't panic if you take her out of the box and she falls apart. The stringing on those dolls sometimes comes apart, but it's something you can fix yourself. Mine have all held up, but I know people that have restrung their dolls.

Oh, I would love to go into that Pink store. All your dolls are beautiful - my sister collects these too. Happy Belated Pink Saturday.

Liz said...

Look at all the pretty pink babies!

Happy Belated Pink Saturday!

Wonderful pinks! Oh how I love your Chatty Cathy ~ I had one just like that with her little blue dress & freckles just like mine!

Aren't the Gotz dolls pretty. I only have one of those.

Hugs,
