MOVIE STARS LOOK 'PRETTY IN PINK'

GOOD-BYE, MR. NEWMAN...
we'll miss you.
*********************************************

*******************



PRAYERS ATTACHED TO THE BALLOONS
FOR ALL ON OUR PRAYER LISTS....
i include the NIELSONS, our sweet DEENA, the residents of the GULF COAST...a lot of them are still without ELECTRICITY..
***************************************
MANY THANKS TO
BEVERLY, our hostess once again for another fun filled
PINK SATURDAY..
be sure to go over and take a peek at all the other PINKS being shown this week.

THANK YOU, BEVERLY !
****************

ONE of my favorite, old movies....and now all the granddaughters LOVE it !!
MOLLY RINGWALD was the CUTEST teenager !!
and did you see her in
16 CANDLES ?? OH, and THE BREAKFAST CLUB ?
both just precious !

"GLENDA'S COMING...in her PINK balloon...
to save all of OZ ..
when my kids were little, if we saw this movie ONCE...
we saw it 9,000 times !!

BEAUTIFUL DAUGHTER grew up wanting those sparkly, red slippers!!

Do you HAVE to be a movie star to get
PINK BUBBLES ??
and have a PINK phone ?...in the bathtub.....
YEP, I am pretty sure you do!!


MILEY CYRUS always looks cute but...
I'D rather see her DAD !!!! ;o)
i mean, REALLY....
BILLY RAY is a cutie and I took 2 grandchildren to see him when he appeared in concert here in our town....back when his song "ACHEY BREAKY HEART" was so hot...(about 15 yrs. ago)
They were so impressed !! And, I scored BIG TIME points!!

YEP...she makes PINK look good...
who the heck is she ?

Not sure there's EVER been anyone else as beautiful and soft looking as
MARILYN...
probably never will be another one just like her, either.

Bless her heart.....

I like her little, short, PINK jacket but....
it's the HAIR that catches MY attention!
to*die*for !!




She was a beauty and couldn't act her way out of a paper bag...
But EVERYONE "back then" just loved the very heck out of her !
especially JOE...
She goes shopping in HIGH HEELS ?????
I'm impressed...


Not many of you will remember
JAYNE MANSFIELD..
a star
from the 50's and 60's....
She was a beautiful lady, had some hit movies and did Broadway plays...
her career was short-lived as
she died in an automobile accident while in her early 30's....

***************

Little SHIRLEY TEMPLE.....
what a cutie !
If you want to watch a cute, light and funny movie sometime, rent one of hers !!
She will blow you away with her incredible talents.SHE was such a popular little girl so full of talents and had such sweet and funny movies that someone named a DRINK after her....
Of course the drink named for the BIGGEST CHILD STAR IN HISTORY contains no alcohol.

Shirley Temple sang, danced and smiled he way into hearts during the Great Depression in movies such as Bright Eyes and Stand Up And Cheer. She was awarded a miniature Oscar and later became a notable politician and diplomat.

Ingredients for a SHIRLY TEMPLE...
3 oz lemon-lime soda
3 oz ginger ale
1 dash grenadine
maraschino cherry for garnish
Preparation:
Pour the lemon-lime soda and ginger ale into a pretty glass with ice cubes.
Add a dash of grenadine.
Stir.
Garnish with the cherry.

*******************
I KNOW...I KNOW.......... and....
I don't give a flyin' flip that there is not a speck of PINK here...
just thought you might want to look at something
soooooo gooood !!!
I mean, LOOK at him, ladies....he is sooo HOT...
OK....if you MUST have PINK........ !!!!!
SHEEEZE !!!

****************************************************************

HAVE A BLESSED WEEKEND......
and be sure to stop by BEVERLY'S to see MORE PINK....
much love,
bj

I, TOO, TAKE THE PLEDGE TO POST SOMETHING PINK IN EVERY POST FOR THE MONTH OF OCTOBER

Happy Pink Saturday, BJ.

You wrapped us up in all kinds of wonderful pink today, and I love it all.

I especially love Harrison Ford. He doesn't have to be pink. ;-)

Smilingsal said...

lol You are a fun person! Your Marilyn and my Marilyn look a tad different, but they're dressed similarly. lol

Southern Lady said...

This was a fun post, BJ. I love old movies (and old movie stars), too, and think Harrison Ford would look good in anything ... even pink!

Take care, my friend ...

Sincerely,

Janie

Picket said...

Fun Pink Post today. Thanks for sharing it. Have a great Pink Saturday!

jen said...

I love your post, pretty in pink was a great movie. LOVE all the pretty pink dresses, especially Marilyn's in diamonds are a girls best friend:) Happy pink Saturday!

dana said...

YOU are just great!!! What a terrific way to start my day--with a walk down "pink movie start memory lane" and your adorable comments!!! I loved all of the photos you selected---especially the "good witch"! Well, truthfully, I like the one of Harrison the best, but just don't let my husband know I said that! You have a great week yourself! Dana

Charmingdesigns said...

ah yes, Harrison Ford.lol.You're too funny!! Laurie

Brown-Eyes said...

Me again, BJ...I just remembered a story HARRISON FORD told on TV. Right after his young girlfriend, Calista Flockhart) adopted her baby, she asked him to stop on his way over to pick up some diapers. Begrudgingly he agreed, but hates public places (because of all the autograph hounds presumably)...anyway, as soon as he entered the store he asked a stock boy for directions and the boy took him to the Depends aisle! How funny... ;-) Bo

g said...

Whoo hoo, such wonderful pinkness!! I have to disagree with you on Marilyn not being able to act, though - she really had a talent. I love her in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, but watch Bus Stop sometime - the girl is great!!

Thanks for the wonderful tour of beautiful pinkness!

pat@backporchmusings said...

Enjoyed catching up with you this morning BJ! Love this post.

Heard this morning one of my all time favorite movie stars passed away after a battle with cancer. Paul Newman, who was quite a guy as well as a wonderful actor.

Sweetie said...

BJ - What a wonderful post. I When my daughters were young, Shirley Temple moves were showed on TV every Sunday and we watched them together. I love Marilyn Monroe and I remember Jayne Mansfield (does that date me?). Of course, no list would be complete without the ultimate Harrison Ford!
Sweetie

Miss Rhea said...

Just Adorable! Lovely trip down memory lane..My 17 year old loves all the Molly Ringwald Movies...me I love Shirley Temple...used to spend Saturday afternoons watching the oldies.

Happy Pink...Lorena

Cori G. said...

Now BJ, If you would have put on some hot pink lipstick and kissed that picture of Harrison Ford, THEN there would have been PINK! The lovely lady in the pink nightie type dress I believe is Jennifer Conley who is married to the dashing Englishman Paul Bettany. Have ou ever seen a movie called "A Knights Tale"? The first movie I ever saw him in and I fell in love.
Have a fun Pink Weekend!
XO Cori

Stacey said...

I love this Pink Saturday thing! Your post was wonderful. I so remember "Pretty In Pink." What a great movie! And Shirley Temple. Who doesn't love her? Do you know there are people over here who don't know who she is? Shocking! Thanks for sharing. ~Stacey

Grandma Faith said...

Your post was so much fun. Thanks for the memories, some old, some new. I'm with you about Harrison Ford...hot, hot, hot. I just read that Paul Newman has died. He was also one of my heart throbs. Take care.

Dawn said...

Boy I think you covered every pink movie/star :)

I have got to say the one that means the most to me is Shirley Temple. I just loved watching her movies. We used to come home from church on Sundays and while my great grandmother cooked her big Sunday meal we would watch Shirley Temple on T.V. I think I still cry when I see some of them.

take care,
Dawn

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Hi BJ,
What a great topic for a pink sat. post!

I remember Jayne Mansfield...she died in Mississippi on highway 90....I think they were either going or coming from New Orleans and she was performing in a night club.

I was just a kid, but remember all the adults talking about it. Very tragic!

jeanne said...

BJ, your post is outstanding in pink. I love walking down memory lane with all those stars and their movies. I have to say I am a huge Marilyn fan too. She was a classic and no one could hold a candle to her fabulous looks and style. I can't forget to mention the non pink Harrison. Mmmmmm he is such a hunk.You win the prize for the best pink post today. smile. My opinion of course!

Hugs, jeanne

Katie said...

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, boy you are up early. I saw your comment and was surprised at the time. Believe me I do the same thing and often. I had just finished reading Nikki's post and had a good cry. I miss my mom still and she has been gone over twenty years. I remember your beautiful post about your mom and it struck me how your mom was so much like mine. The same type of personality. No wonder I feel a connection to you. It's our moms, we were raised with the same values. Smile! Aren't we the lucky ones?

Love and hugs with blessings too...Jeanne

jeanne said...

BJ, My mom passed on April 15th 1986.
I told you are stars are crossed. Have a great nap today. I still want my momma too. Smile.

Love, Jeanne

Good Afternoon dear sweet adorable BJ!!
I love this post ...it is so cheery and happy, and PINK!!!
I have been busy but not feathering the nest so much. Been working in the office and catching up after being away last weekend with the girls. It was memorable and sooo much fun! Then we had a 50th birthday party for another friend friday evening, so it's been quite eventful around here.
Keep those adorable posts coming and thanks for stopping over. You are the BEST B.J.!!!

Great post, Jayne Mansfield what a tragic ending she was decapitated in that accident with her little girl (Mariska Hargitay) unharmed and asleep in the backseat.
