Nearly everyone loves PINK AND GREEN together....

I do...I do....



AND....WHOA ........

I was a teenager in the '50's and
PINK AND BLACK
was the HOT TICKET back then.

I had so much PINK AND BLACK clothing that my mom made for me....
and a cute boyfriend had a BLACK Ford....one day he came to pick moi up and
he had SPRAY PAINTED his DASH PINK!!!!!!

i was mortified !!!!!!!!!!!!! scared to death SOMEONE would see us....

I could not believe my eyes and it was, without a doubt, the UGLIEST thing I had EVER
seen in my entire lifetime. I mean...just THINK about it....SPRAY PAINT !!!
I dang near BROKE UP with him oVer it...
(oh....how shallow we are when we are young.)
Actually, he was waaay too cute to break up with so....
I DIDN'T !!! how goofy !! :O) HAHA...how fun!!

this is a beauty in PINK.......



BET CINDERELLA would just LUV this one..........



Sweet little PINK roses and tiny crystal drops...so so sweet...
I LOVE PINK LIGHTS....how 'bout you ? now...I would like something like this in my bath...over my tub...ummmm!!

I leave you with this little beauty that PENNY crafted....
think about it and have
SWEET PINK DREAMS.....

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

and thank you, Penny AND Linda, for allowing me to use your precious LIGHTS....
LOVE, bj
pls. make that appt. for a mammogram if you haven't already....

you are too loved to get sick !!

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

several ladies have asked how i put the white frilly border around my pictures on the header....
i use PhotoScape for all kinds of borders. It is free, easy and lots of fun to use.(gosh, except for the free part, that sounds like a hooker!!).
I have tried others but when it gets past about 3 steps, it confuses me (remember....i'm old)........this one is E.A.S.Y.
have fun with it.....

my fave is the first one and the 50's pom pom one, ooooh I sooo love that!

hope you are enjoying the weekend, just woke up to a wonderful morning in Australia and came visit you with my morning tea...oh and those magazine piles, eeek I have them everywhere, not sure if that's good or bad, my son shouts out to me the other day, knowing my fussiness "hey mum, just which of the piles do you want this magazine on" heehee

laurie said...

Well, I only saw about 5 chandys that I want! All 3 of my granddaughters would love that ballerina chandy! What fun to see these great pink chandys. Loved your story about the pink dashboard! Do you think he was trying for red? Of course, I'm sure spray painting the dashboard any color would be a mess, but pink! Not many guys back then would have wanted a pink dashboard! laurie

Margie said...

*giggle giggle* I loved the story about the *pink* dashboard! Did he do that just for you? I think that's sweet!

What cool chandeliers! I think my favorite one is the second one! I would love to have that one hanging in my office!

Have a lovely weekend!
Margie :)

Mary said...

BJ,

I loved your pink parade. Those lamps are so unique. I have never seen anything like them.

I am praying for all breast cancer survivors and for all those suffering eith breast cancer. My Aunt May is not doing well. Her breast cancer turned to bone cancer and now she is dying. Please pray for her.

Blessings,
Mary

Thanks for all the effort to make such a great Pink Saturday post!

sherri (Tied Up In Ribbons) said...

lovely lights. I enjoy seeing what people create like this. That neon is the best...

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, I noticed you were up because I just read your comment on Beverly's post. I love that song by the Oaks too. In fact I was singing along real loud and my dh gave me a look of WHAT??? LOL. Have a wonderful Sunday my friend.

Hugs...Jeanne

Twice as Nice said...

LOL Love the boyfriend story. You're great at blogging. I don't even know how to post pictures that are already down loaded onto the computer. My daughter has shown me but she is as quick as lightning and I am hard to teach! LOL I still have to have her or Fern post the pictures and then I usually do the writing. That may explain why we don't post very often. I'm a stay at home mom but Fern works 4 days a week. I'll get it some day. Fern and I also have 2 awards we never picked up cause those boogers just don't want to co-operate and come home with us. So...consider yourself a seasoned blogger and I'm a BJ wantabe!!

HAPPY WEEKEND:o)

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Hi BJ!
What a fabulous post! I love the cause (and yes I get regular mammograms!) and the chandy's are so awesome!! Linda & Penny do some incredible things with their teacup designs. (I'm waiting for the lottery too!)
Thanks for sharing the PhotoScape thing, I'm old too... I only want 2 steps in computer stuff and 3 ingredients in a recipe anymore!
Hugs, sherry

Anita said...

dana said...

You "out-pinked" yourself with those wonderful pink chandys!! I loved all of them---sooooo love the pink light bulbs. I just teared up over your post about your sister. I lost mine almost 20 years ago--she had just turned 40. It was the saddest day. I still grieve for her--we were best friends.
You take care of yourself. dana
