Pink Saturday

I have joined Pink Saturday (organized by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound). The idea is for me to do a post with a pink theme on Saturdays. Initially I thought this would just be a fun thing to participate in, I then realized what a challenge this is going to be. Not that it will not be fun as well, it will just be fun in a challenging sort of way. Here's where the challenge comes in; my house is pink deprived. No, really. I am talking, the absence of pink. A big pink void. As I look around my house, almost everything is in earthtones, browns, creams, whites, etc., so this should be interesting. So here is my pink for this, my very first Pink Saturday:

My daughter and I found this apron at the thrift store a couple months ago. Isn't it the most amazing thing? Don't you dream of a slower time when even aprons were made to be works of art?
As you can see by the photo, I did find something pink, ok, so maybe there isn't a total absence, just a shortage. I'll have to work on that.

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Shelley.

That apron is so pretty it must have been for parties.

Keep looking. You will find pink in unexpected places. And, be sure to take your camera with you when you are out and about.

Welcome!!!

For being a lady "void" in Pink ( and I KNOW that feeling!) you certainly shared something fabulous! I love old aprons---they do remind us of a different time! I'm glad to see folks are starting to love em again--both the old ones and all of the new ones folks are making!

I hope you have a great First Pink Saturday! Dana

This is too cute! I didn't think I had many pink things in the house till I really started looking & discovered somethings have pink in them, so I'm off & running on Pink Saturdays! ♥ Diane

From one Pink Saturday newbie to another - welcome! And, yes, yes, yes I long for those simple times when beautiful aprons were worn. Of course, not much need to protect my jeans. :-) Much luck to you on your hunt for pink!

So glad you joined us for Pink Saturday. I don't have much pink in my home either but it's easy, once you start looking, to see pink everywhere. :) Happy Belated Pink Saturday ~ Lynn
