October is a special month! 
My Mom will turn 81 on October 18th!
Tiger turned 6 months old (picture at end of post)!
Lots of leaves changing colors!
Pumpkins everywhere!
Breast Cancer Awareness month!

Today I'm sharing photos of my small collection of Pink Pottery
I love pink and this collection has grown in the last few years 
These baby shoe planters were found on the longest yard sale in 2010
unmarked but usually attributed to McCoy pottery

This little planter was found at a thrift store and has an interesting texture on it 
marked 'Miramar of California' 

These next two planters were found at different times but look like they are from the same maker
I love the almost ruby pink color with the lighter glaze around the top
This one has many flaws but it is still pretty

This pretty planter is marked USA J-19 and has a lovely soft pink flat glaze on it 
If anyone knows who made this I would love to know!

This piece is not marked at all but I love it's swirls and lovely pink color

This is my favorite of the pink planters
Bought on the longest yard sale 2010 because I can see the "L" on the front!

I have a bluish gray baby shoe just like yours. Now why my great aunt sent me flowers to me for my birth in blue shoe since I'm a girl, named after her, I don't know why she chose that color. However, sentimentally, it is one of my favorite items.

Leah said...

Love your pinks! What a sweet baby boy. :)

He is just so adorable, love that big smile! My mom just turned 81 last month. Aren't we lucky to have them in our lives?
You sure have quite a collection of pretty pink pottery. I think my favorite is the L planter, it was meant to come home with you.
