Happy Pink Saturday Bloggerettes!

Hi Bloggerettes!  I'm going to be all over the place with my Pink Saturday post!  Please be sure and visit our lovely host, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for some wonderful pinkilicious stuff.

How about a peek at my guestroom.  You will notice that the bed is so full of pillows there is no way anyone could sleep in it.  Um.....maybe that's intentional.....I'm just sayin.
I can't help myself!  I just love pillows and the more the better and if they are pink, then I have something for Pink Saturday.  See the sweet sachet door hanger I won from Lynn at Teacup Stitches!

This is the prom dress I found and hung on the wall.  You've seen it before I'm sure.....
Television is hiding in the big green botanical
print armoire...

This is the pinkest room in the house.

Switching gears about some pink flamingos!
I found these vintage ones for my sister.  She collects them.
Look how pretty they are on her mantle with her other collection...
Well, better get movin, I am headin to an auction tonight
hoping to find some good stuff.

Happy Hunting everyone!

Grace said...

Pretty new photo in your header! Oh, Sissie, I love all your pretty pillows! I think you have more pillows on the bed than I do and I have ten! Ha, ha! I'm so glad you have kept that lovely dress and just hung it up to admire. I LOVE it! Have fun at the auction and Happy Pink Saturday weekend to you.

Sissy, be still my heart! Oh my, look at that absolutely gorgeous room, those fabulous pillows, not to mention that incredible gown, love it all.

Have a great time at the auction and hope you come across some great finds!


Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Happy hunting at the auction! Your guest room is beautiful, and I'm lovin' the flamingos!!! Don't know why a Philly girl gets such a kick out of them, but I always have!


Hi Sissie, Thank you for sharing, I hope you come home with many treasures from the auction!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You know I love the pink room and all the ruffles, but I heart those Flamingos. Your sister and I agree....and vintage one's are the best!

Blondie's Journal said...

I am totally in love with your guest room. It's like a fantasy room for me!! All that pink and those charming pillows. And I adore those flamingos...pretty classy for flamingos! ;-D

Hope you have a wonderful time at the auction!


Marsha (Sassy Mini Dolls) said...

What a beautiful guestroom!!! And I LOVE those vintage pink flamingos!!!


Lynn said...

Your guest bedroom is absolutely gorgeous!! I, too, love lots and lots of pillows on my beds... My hubby says I have waaay too many for him to take them off our bed when it's bedtime..haha! I don't!

Can't wait to see what neat items you find at your auction!! Have a great time and great weekend too!

Hi Sissie Sweetie...
I am knocking on the door, let me in. I am coming to stay in that guest room. Oh my how beautiful it is. I too love all the pillows. I know they are frou-frou, but I am a frou-frou kind of gal. I love your precious gift from Lynne. Congratulations on the win sweetie. Couldn't have gone to a sweeter person.

Oh I love flamingos. I have a few sets about the house. I will have to post mine in one of my Pink Saturday posts. I found a darling salt and pepper shaker when several of us bloggers went thrifting one Friday afternoon many moons ago.

The doctor did not give me any good news today. He will not be taking me off the steroids any time soon. My lungs did not pass the tests required. He is also recommending that I do not talk at work for the next two weeks. That will be fun signing and writing on wipe boards there. At least I won't have to answer any phone.

Have a fun time at the auction. I can't wait to see what you find. Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie... Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Jane said...

Your guest room looks like a perfect place to visit. I love all the pillows on the bed and the armoire is gorgeous. I remember you mentioning your sister collected pink flamingos. The vintage ones you found are really pretty.
Good luck at the auction.

Hi Sissie,
Your linens are always absolutely gorgeous....I so love your home and decorating style. Maybe I could move in to that room???? I don't mind sharing with all the pillows!
Love ya!

Brenda ~ Shabby Cats and Roses said...

Hi Sissie :) Your guest room is simply dreamy, and I don't think having all those lovely pillows on the bed will stop people from wanting to stay over, lol!! The pink flamingo's you found for your sister are too cute, and she has displayed them perfectly :)

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday!!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

Those flamingos are a hoot and a half. She makes them look wonderful on her mantle!
I would love to crawl up in that bed and pretend I am the Princess and the Pea!

Marydon said...

Sissie ~ Don't you let Sherry have that bedroom, it says Marydon all over it! What a beautiful serene room ... so chic!

The flamingo's my g'ma Cora had ... these exact ones! That is quite a collection there. They are so beautifully presented on the mantle.

Such a pretty room Sissie! I'm sure you will have bloggers beating down your door to visit you and stay in there! Love the flamingos too! My grandma always had them and I dare say they are Mammy Fabulous! I have an old garden one in a tub of flowers outside but it doesn't look quite right here in Michigan.
I can't wait to see what you picked up at the auction, have a great Saturday, Theresa

Sares said...

Beautiful soft pinkness as always! You switched things around here a bit, very nice. Hope you have a super pinkalicious weekend!

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Honey thanks for coming by and leaving me a comment about what happened to your site. I am so upset because I hate change when I am not in charge of it. lol
Love what you did with your site though.
Your home is to die for....I love that bedroom...and everything in it.

June said...

Sissie my bags are packed and I'm heading your way. I'll just neatly stack the pillows as I crawl into that beautiful bed everynight. It sounds like I need to share the room with some of your other friends, but I don't mind...they are all awesome girls.
Can we play dress-up when I come? You can wear this lovely white lacy number and I will wear the pink satiny one in one of your last posts. sounds so fun!!!
Thank you so for your lovely comment.

Draffin Bears said...

Hi Sissie,

Your guest room is gorgeous and looks so comfortable and inviting.

Happy weekend

~~Carol~~ said...

Your guest room is so pretty, and really I wouldn't mind sleeping there amongst all those pillows!
Your sister's mantel is gorgeous! I love vintage flamingos, and have been tempted to buy a couple of them, but I didn't know how to work them into my decor. After seeing these, I have to get some!
Happy Pink Saturday!
