I have a bit of a confession....I love pink roses on vintage tablecloths. They get to me! When I see one...my knees get weak, I feel funny inside....and these Pink Saturdays only make me want more...http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/, Beverly has only added problems to my pink love...you can't possibly post the same picture every week! Beverly asks for 'NEW' pictures, which means we are 'FORCED' ladies to go out and find more pink! I wonder how much money I have (usually none due to the kids!) and then my mind starts whirling....
Is there a way? Do I need it? Of course I do!!! I have only got one dining room table, who needs all these pink tablecloths?
OK I love pink and white doilies too....
No, I don't want to start counting...
Just look at these roses! Oh my, if only my sheets looked like these...
Thanks so much for coming by!

Who knows how many tablecloths this woman could have had, it says she smiled at the future....perhaps she smiled at a few of her own collections....?

Beautiful tablecloths and doiles. I guess you will have to rotate your tablecloths. That way you still have one on the table while one is being washed. I find myself really loving pink roses too. Happy Pink Saturday!

My husband's grandmother used to make doilies that look much like those. Please come visit for my Pink Saturday offering, and then click on the book in my sidebar for a book giveaway!

Hi Debbie,

I just love your beautiful collection of pink rose tablecloths and those sweet doilies. I too adore those vintage tablecloths and have several of my own that I hope to show someday soon on my own blog.

Happy Pink Saturday !!

What lovely things!! Yes, kids do get all the money. Is there an end to that? Ours are all grown. We just delivered new tires to our youngest. (at least he's safer now)

As for shopping, thrift stores and yard sales don't count..heck that stuff is practically free!!!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Hey, Deb!

It's your red-headed friend! I am going to create my OWN blog, but I agree with everyone else, particularly team sponski--a woman can NEVER have too much pink! I'm starting my own blog, and it will be called "Film, Lit, and More!" I think that about covers it! Anyway, I am so excited about your blog and all over your pink. Here's to more Pink Roses when you come to Tulsa! And yes, SHOP ON! Weltha
