aqua 'n pink odds 'n ends

Yes, that would be an aqua bustier lamp up there. Oh but does it ever look sweet at night. ($2.99 at Savers)
And I finally found me a ceramic hand. I think they look so cool. And mine has red nail polish. Even cooler. (99 cents)

Recently found the 'made in England' tin.
Love the color and design. (99 cents)

And today I found the pink ceramic princess phone that holds my Tinkerbell pen and a notepad. How cute is that! I am thinking it's vintage because it's quite a heavy ceramic. (69 cents at Savers)
In case some of you are wondering what those three miniature baskets are. They contain rain bonnets. The yellow and green ones were freebies at our Jackson County Fair in Wisconsin back in the 60's. Then I found the pink one at a yard sale last year for 10 cents!! What are the chances I'd ever find another... especially a pink one! I was beyond thrilled! (be sure to click all the pics to enlarge)
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
It's 113 degrees here. But it's OK. Really. It's a dry heat. No sweat.

What fun things! I love the bustier...and it's a lamp! How fun!
It was 120 in Bullhead City most of the week! My drivers that go down there were coming back worn out from the heat! I think we got to 103. Blaagggh! Summer in AZ stinks! LOL!

Holy Cow - 113! My dtr. and I just got back from Hawaii and it was glorious.

BTW, I just had a funny thought. Wait until your granddaughter starts getting into all of your "goodies!" She's going to LOVE your sewing room!!

Don't you just love those two colors together!?

You've got a great collection. The phones are too cute! And I would love to find a whole set of the pink corningware/refrigertor storage ware. Beautiful!

Hello Linda! Thank you for visiting today!
I LOVE this pink and aqua room. I want an aqua phone, how cute! I remember those rain bonnet purses, I think I played with the beigey one when I was little. I loved folding the bonnet back up perfectly so it would fit back inside, lol!

Love all the treasures you find. I must not have the skills--I never find anything at Savers!
