pink Saturday --- antique mall finds

Welcome everyone to this week's edition of Pink Saturday, hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

The Old Salt and I have been spending a lot of time recently making business and medical trips into the city. Earlier this week we had to kill some time between appointments, so we visited a few antique shops in a neighborhood known as the Central West End. One of the shops had an entire corner dedicated to nothing but pink items that I will share with all of you as time permits.

Today I selected the following baby pink items.

All of these items were in such great condition that I had a hard time believing they were actually very old. I loved the lamp shade and wished it had had the lamp to go with it. The third photo was labeled as a 1920's slumber cap, but I swear it looked just like the roller covers we wore when I was in high school.

To join in the fun or just visit the pink post of others visit Beverly and her friends at Pink Saturday.


  1. Happy Pink Saturday Rita Sweetie...
    Oh my gosh I so adore this beautiful lamp, and my gosh this hat is exquisite. Can you believe that it was kept that wonderful and new looking. Like you said it is so beautiful it really doesn't look old, only the style. Okay now tell me, did you try it on? OMG, I would have had to try it on. I just would have.

    Love this slumber cap, but I agree it does look like on that we wore over our rollers. How funny is that? Maybe that is where they came from.

    Thanks for sharing sweetie. I pray that you are well. Have a beautiful Pink Saturday sweetie. Country hugs and much love, Sherry
