Pink Saturday

Good Pink Saturday Everyone!

Today our charming hostess with the mostest, Beverly has asked us to combine our love for Pink with some of our favorite things to decorate with! What fun.

First of all I'd like to feature some little beauties to sleep in, because don't we enjoy snuggling into that favorite flannel gown this time of year and hitting the sack after a long and exhausting day of cleaning, cooking, shopping, decorating and running ourselves ragged.

Something like this maybe? (actually I have a few that look kinda like this)

And you just gotta admit that this little vintage pretty does look darn comfortable.

But Whoa Nellie..........lookie here lookie here. This ain't your Grannies nightie.
What a difference 50 years in the fashion world has made.

And now on to my faves of all time decorations. The ones that speak to my heart.

This sweet Prairie Angel was made for me by my youngest daughter Shari in 1989. She had followed her navy husband to Norfolk and she had an 8 year old son, an 20 month old baby and expecting her third child on Dec. 17 and was barely 25 years old. She was lonely, unhappy and worked so hard in making this very special gift of love for her momma. We were living in northern California and my Mother had died the year before. Each time I look at it, I can imagine all the emotional hours she spent in cross-stitching the apron while tending to kids and on the verge of delivering another and the depression and sadness she was feeling after losing her beloved Grandmother and being away from family and it truly tugs at my heart making it my all time favorite.

This Mister and Missus ceramic duo is very heavy and was given to my Mom by my brother's oldest son when he was 3 or 4 years old, so it is probably around 37 years old. It is one of the few little things I have left that belonged to her.

And another little all time favorite. The baby food jar was made in '88 for me by my 7 year old Grandson, Joe (Shari's oldest) and sent to me from Virginia. I had not seen him in a couple of years so it really touched my heart. It had contained "Tang" Spiced Tea then. And the little red framed picture was made for me quite a few years ago by Lori my oldest daughter. I use it each year. So you can see by my showings and I'm sure it's the same with most of you that what we cherish most are the things given to us with the labor of love stamped on them.

What are YOUR favorites?

Have a Blessed Saturday and Lots of Fun looking at Favorite Decorations.

Holiday Hugs, mizmollye


  1. Happy Pink Saturday MizMollye...
    Oh you sassy little thing. Now I don't think I have ever dressed in anything quite like the 2 little numbers. My husband would have quit his job and just stayed home permanently. I have never stepped inside of Victoria's Secret. The secret is, they only carry undergarments for size "0" or "B cup". Which I am neither.

    I love the first one or Hunny Bunny's worn flannel shirt has always been my fav.

    Now your angel is precious, and yes I have cross-stitched and I can appreciate every little stitch your daughter put into the apron. So sweet. Love the painting, and your littl jar from your dear grandson. How precious is that.

    I also love your Mr and Mrs Claus. So cute and fisty looking. Thanks for sharing.

    Please stop by and let me share my pink post with you. I love it when you visit.

    Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

  2. Hello you sweet lady! Well I am a vintage girl myself with a devilishness on the side :) But these days I like to be snuggly and warm, and that sexy number wouldn't do that at all I don't think! (besides which, ha ha, I certainly would NOT look like that in it these days!!!)
    I love your treasured decorations, you are so right, the ones I adore and cherish are the ones where someone has put a piece of themselves into it. Have a lovely weekend! suzie. xxx

  3. Hi, Mollye!

    I am in love with that sweet white gown with the pink trim. It's so pretty. And I love your cross stitch angel, too. That is is darling and comes with such a sweet message of love. I also like all of your other tabletop goodies... cute!

    Happy Pink Saturday to a favorite Pinky!


    Sheila... who can't imagine at this stage in life squeezing into that torture teddy with stays. LOL!

  6. Such a lovely heartfelt post. Happy Festive Pink Saturday.

  7. You have a lot of neat special decorations. I remember my kids made me a baby food jar but hadnt thought of that in a long time. Love the jammies, I vote for the comfortable ones.

    Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Miz Mollye...Flannel PJs are one of my favorite things about winter...Thanks for the memory rush...Tang Spiced Tea in decorted jars...that was the absolute Official Teacher Gift back then! Followed a couple of years later by the Hot Chocolate Mixes...I have also posted homemade ornaments from the past(along with the original instructions...oh, the stuff we save...)Hope your week is filled with joys.

  9. Your prarie angle looks so sweet. I am sure there was a lot of love put into it. Picture miss piggy in one of those pink get ups and you know how I would look in one. Ha! Pink Blessings!

  10. Love the cute pink jammies and the vintage white and pink one. Also love the angel your daughter cross-stitched for you...a lot of work went into that sweet thing. Spiced Hot Tang, now that's a blast from the past. Sounds kinda good, eh? Happy Pink Saturday and I hope those girls in the skimpy lingerie catch their death of a cold ;)

  11. Such handmade treasures you have all made with love! Nothing beats that! Love Mr. & Mrs. Claus!!!

    LOL, my hubby and I were just talking the other night how one Christmas he went with his friend Mike to Victoria Secrets to purchase a teddy for me and just like in the movies they're telling the the saleslady, oh, she's about this size (well then I was a 6)!

    I still have it stuck away in the back of the drawer. Can't bring myself to throw it out. Maybe I can use the lace for something . . .

    Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

  22. Your prairie angle and the story really touched my heart. Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday!


  23. Hi, Mollye,
    I agree, the things we cherish the most at Christmas are things made by our family. The story of the prairie angel was a sweet one as you know it was a real labor of love for your daughter to make for you. My son and his wife and young son were stationed in Norfolk about eight years ago. He was in the Navy. I hope you have a blessed Christmas and a very Happy Pink Saturday. Vicki
