I'm in the pink!

Today is my first time to participate in Beverly's Pink Saturday blog party. I have quite a few pink things & I love parties so why not? You all were having too much fun & I wanted to play too. ;o)





For my very first Pink Saturday post, I'm sharing a couple of treasured bone dishes by Ardalt....the pattern is 6699 B but I've never seen any others like them. I bought them many, many years ago, when I first started thrifting.


I love the painted dots on them...I like to rub my fingers over them ...it reminds me of the Braille books we had in elementary. I used to love the feel of them too.



And look at the teeny-tiny hand painted roses! Aren't they sweet?




I hung the pair of these lovely bone dishes (it's not what they're made of...it's what they're for...they sat at the head of the dinner plate & bones were deposited in them), upstairs in my guest room, on either side of a beveled mirror. The framed picture on the mirror is actually the cover to a piece of old sheet music from the early 1900's. I'll share more of it, as well as the rest of my collection, in a 3 or More Thursday post soon.



If you like pink, run to Beverly's @ How Sweet the Sound & see all the other participants. There's a lot of pink eye candy in them!

HI, The little dishes are sweet. My mother's favorite color has always been rose and I love it too. I didn't know about the Pink Saturday but will enjoy it. We do have a "Pink Ladies" store and I am wondering if I have been missing all kinds of fun.

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

I love these bone dishes. Can you believe I don't own a single one? That's the only thing. LOL I'm sorry I did not come by and congratulate you on winning the "Pay It Forward Friday Give Away." You won the Southern Living recipe book. We all got sick here soon after. If you email me your addy, I will ship it right out to you.

Hello Cami. yesterday was a ost day so I am trying to catch up on all the Pinkies today. Your first entry in pink is beautiful. The bone dishes look like Nippon. Very pretty. The sheet music is a treasure. Nice going on your first pink Sat.

Hugs...Jeanne

Ginger said...

That little dish is precious. I love treasures like that.
I love pink, too.

dana said...

So glad to have you in Pink Sat! You shared some lovely Pinks!!!

I am just kicking myself that I didn't know about the great N.Hill's giveaway! I do love her style, too, and she just opened her second store in the northern part of the metro Kansas City, Mo area. I almost like the one in Atchison,Ks better, cuz it's in an old shopping district vs a new grouping of buildings.

Happy Pink Sat!!! Dana

You have a very nice collection. Happy Pink Saturday.

The Muse said...

Sorry I'm so late in posting my comments...work has taken me on a few travels as of late...but now that I am able, I certainly wanted to "visit".

Our cottage, The Painted Nest is not abundant in PINK (gasp, I know, LOL) nonetheless the fun continues, as I participated in this past Sat. Pink Posting... :)

Happy to be here tonight...as you know..that a first pink sat is cause for celebration they say! LOL

Your bone china is beyond the pale...glorious...you also talked of the raised bumps(braille) mmm

i do want to say that I completely love the art hung over the mirror! YES!

Fleur de Bee said...

What fun that we both collect the pretty avon bottles...I have alot of the boxes that go with my bottles too...some of the boxes are even more pretty than the bottles themselves...I'll have to get them down from out of the closet and do a post on those soon....I'd love to see your bottle collection too....

Cami, Love the bone dishes, and all the little details you shared about them. They are gorgeous! I so badly wanted to share in Pink Saturday, but missed it due to working hard on the M.Monday piece. Hope to try this Saturday! Take care...love your blog!
