Pink Saturday

It is a dark and dreary day here in North Georgia so I thought I would share some pinks to brighten up the day!  Most of you know I love my cubbies and change them for holidays and seasons.  I have a small set of cubbies painted black (found that way in the thrift store) in my bedroom on the closet shelf
It holds some of my Flamingo collection


 All of these items were found at thrift shops
I love the handle on this coffee mug
Another coffee mug and two flamingo bells
the glass one (not a good photo) was a gift from my good friend Terry!
The salt & pepper shakers were a recent purchase from an Antique Mall when I was in Texas last fall
The candles have been gifts from friends
This creamer is one of my favorites!  It is Porcelier Vitreous China made in the USA...I've seen photos of a matching sugar bowl and teapot but have not found them at a good price yet!  
These items don't fit into the cubbies
I need to find a good way to display my growing collection of vintage Flamingos

I hope you enjoyed my 'pinks' 
I'm joining the wonderful Beverly at 

I hope you will stop by her blog and visit all the wonderful eye candy posts! 

Hugs,
Linda

**Edited to say that since Picnik is going away I tried a new site today BeFunky photo editing for all the photos in this post.  It was easy and pretty good.  I will miss Picnik!**

Hi Linda,
I believe that I told you before that you and my sister share the love of pink flamingos.
I love your collection, they make me smile.

You have a beautiful collection of flamingos, Linda!

Gina said...

You have quite the collection of pretty pink flamingos!
I almost thought you painted your cubbies black until I realized these were different cubbies than the ones you usually show.
I will miss Picnik too.

Love your flamingos. I too am sad that Picnik is closing. I will check out the one you tried.

What a sweet collection! I love flamingos of any kind. They always make me think of the plastic ones my grandmother had in her front yard when I was a little girl.

Thank you for bringing cheer to this gray day in Alabama too.

You know I love those Flamingo's too - all of them - don't have a favorite.

I didn't know Picnic was going away.

Love, sandie

When I read your post title on my blog roll, I was hoping to see some Flamingos! And here they are!

I love it!

I just finished washing every dish in my kitchen for the fourth time today and I'm taking a little bloggy break now that everybody is in bed and the house is quiet. Love the flamingos! Hate the bad news. Where have I been? Picnik is going away?! I have to learn something new?! Grrr.....

Susan said...

Honestly, Linda, every time I see flamingos, I think of you.

So know that somewhere in New England, in a Goodwill or a Salvation Army or a Saver's Thrift Store, you are in my thoughts. ha ha ha

Do you still collect them, by the way?

Hope your Sunday is terrific. Susan

Jojo said...

We needed some cheerfulness both yesterday and today! What is up with this dreary weather???

I love the flamingo collection!!!

I just read about Picnik going away, and it's a real shame.

I did go to the new site, but it's kind of too much advertising for me, I think I will stick with Picassa for my blog.

What a great collection of flamingos. Those warmed me up just by looking at them.
