A little vintage Pinkness

Oh no I didn't...oh yes I did....I looked on Etsy and casually typed in Pink Melmac...you know the old stuff...old dishes...
Oh I couldn't believe how many people were trying to sell and get rid of this pink goodness! Why it fit into
my humble shabby farmhouse PERFECTLY.  So a few boxes arrived at the house and Mr. Farmer wanted to know what I had ordered.  Oh just a little somethin'... old!

Be sure to see my Thursday Tablescape post  showing the pink
Melmac goodness. Oh by the way...there are all kinds of sherberty colors for spring in Melmac..pale yellows, greens and blues...oh my...be still my heart.  And very very inexpensive.

I'm always so impressed at the way you bring the seasons into your home Debbie!! I love these dishes. I still have one orange bowl from my childhood, and of course that little creamer in turquoise I think I mentioned before.

Thanks so much for your prayers for my nephew. He's improving daily, and we're all so encouraged.
Have a wonderful week.

This is all so pretty, Debbie. Did you link to Pink Saturday?

I just sent you an e-mail to see if you want to be the featured participant this Saturday. I hope to hear from you soon.♥

What treasures! I love the colors with your collections. I will look forward to seeing these in future tablescapes.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and becoming a follower. I'm sorry it took me awhile to reciprocate, but my work schedule has precluded much blogging interaction. I'm now following you, too!

Debbie, you're the BOMB when it comes to great things you to do your house and your table (not to mention to "Mr. Debbie"--and do tell him I refer to him that way since I actually know you both personally and well...)--I am so impressed by what you do. Hey, I'm looking for something: I want pink glass snack sets--you know, those little clear plates with little cups that fit into a ring...I don't want plain glass (there are a kazillion out there to buy) or "milk glass" but a clear sort of peachy-pink...I would LOVE to have 12 sets but would be happy with just 4. All right, let's make that 16 sets so I can have a PARTY. You and your readers let me know at welthawood@yahoo.com

Love you dear Deb! You are the most talented woman I know...
