Hi it's Kirbee!  Mum said since I was pink I could write today's post about her finds from the World's Longest Yard Sale that are PINK!!
 I am not the fastest typist
(using my feet of course)
So here goes....Mum loves Pink!  She found lots of very happy pink items on this trip and since I love pink also here they are!
So many shades of glorious PINK
This vase was bought from the same lady with all the pottery baby shoes.  These are the pink one's!  What will Mum do with them all?  She says she might have to sell some so if you are interested please email her~!
She really likes this vase
Pretty linens
A different pink baby shoe and this very southern dogwood flower plate...just too pretty to leave 
Oh and this PINK Fiesta Platter....$5 she was jumping up and down when she found this!  Cute doily underneath if you like that sort of thing.
Here I am getting a closer look at everything so I can describe all her finds for you
These old 'fish' glasses will go with the PINKS and Turquoises she has, or so she said....I would rather eat fish myself.
A closer view of the glasses and yes 'another' pink bootie planter, this time a double shoe with bows!  
I had to include this picture again, well because the planter is pink and um, well ah, because I'm in it and so it's uber cute!! 

That's the Pinks!  I think she is almost done with this World's Longest Yard Sale stuff...oh wait, one more post with odds and ends and some stories she says.  
That's all from me, guest posting from Hotlanta!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Kirbee, you are a wonderful blogger. I love all your mums pink things especially the fish glasses. I am sure just looking at those makes you kind of hungry. Tell her you deserve some fresh fish asap.

Wow, so many treasures. I love the pink vase. You can do so much with these pieces. You could do different colour or themed table centerpieces.
What fun you must have had.

Claudie said...

Hey Kirbee.
Since I'm sooooooooo much of a pink lover too, and by the way your very cute, I wanted to come and say hello.
I have that same little doily under your Fiesta platter. I feel in love with it just like your mom.
Have a great weekend.. and say hi to my friend Linda for me.
Love You
Love Me

Cute post...we all know pink isn't my favorite color, but that little pink tie-up shoe is adorable.


Hi. Thanks for visiting.
Great thrifty finds. Finding Desert Rose serving pieces for $1 is a great buy, and they will look great with pink Fiesta ware.

I was drooling over all the other colors, but you saved the best for last. Love Love love the pinks. My favorite are the fish glasses. So a question for you, how did you get all of this in the car? By the way, sorry you didn't win, but at least it was still a Linda that won the giveaway. Thank you especially for your really sweet comment. Yup, we are going to have to meet at least half way for a road trip. Have a lovely weekend. Be sure that Kirbee gets plenty of rest. That little guy worked his feathers off.

Wow....can you group together all the little shoes for one photo? They're amazing. You are too!

A Hopeful Heart said...

Kirbee, thank you for sharing all of Mum's goodies with us. Tell her that I LOVE the linens and the dogwood bowl the most...and you, of course. I think y'all had a very productive time at the WLYS.


Sherry from Alabama said...

Oh my goodness, did you ever hit the jackpot on this yard sale! Did you make it as far as Alabama? I live only about 25 miles from where the sale originates. Thank you for coming by to visit me on this Happy Pink Saturday and for sharing the pics of your beautiful new treasures.
