Thank Goodness for the Pink Fairy!

Hi Bloggerettes!  Can you believe that Pink Saturday has rolled around already?    Well here it is and I was totally unprepared.  I wondered around today thinking about my lack of pink, when suddenly the Pink Fairy appeared!
She said to put these on and make a wish for something pink!
So, I wished for this....

There was only one problem.....I couldn't get my big butt into it!
Okay, moving on.....
Well lo and behold I walked into Miss Minnie's and there she was in someone elses booth.  She didn't look happy so I took her over to my place.
And now, she's mine!  All mine!  And she's Pink!!

Ain't she cute wearin this pretty little vintage crinoline.
And look at those legs!

I got one more thing to show you but it isn't pink. You can see a little pink flower in the reflection, so that counts, right.

Ooh, how I love etched mirrors!

Thanks to our lovely hostess, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound
for bringing us Pink Saturday.  Be sure and go there and
check out all the other pinks.

Morning Dear Sissieness! Oh, are those your cute little pink feet in those pink heels? I love them. Now your little dress form is so pretty and look at her slip. I wore these as a little girl and we called them 'stand out slips'! :) I grew up in Alabama.
Be a sweetie and continue to be Pink,
Shelia ;)

G'day Sissie ~ BEAUTIFUL! What an adorable touch you gave to her ... she's a pur-tee one now.

Love that mirror. We just bought a gilded one for the bathroom, vintage ... I now wonder if I shouldn't have looked for plain with etching. We'll see ...

Have a beautiful & safe holiday weekend.

Loooove the pink fufu dress and shoes and that wire manequin is wonderful. Best of all is the pink crinoline. Love, love, love it. Brings back so many great memories. Thanks for stopping by and giving me some ideas. The pumpkin with celery ribbon and glitter sounds WONDERFUL. May have to try that one. Thanks.
Have a great weekend.

What fabulous "sitting" shoes. I call 'em that 'cause if I tried to stand up and walk, I'm sure I'd fall down...but what a way to go!
