My 3rd scratched up ole TOLE TRAY.....

PINK SATURDAY
is here again...hosted by In The Pink, BEVERLY over at HOW SWEET THE SOUND..She has some great PINK for all of us today and
a list of over 100 just waiting to show their PINKS, too...
**
Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today...
*
*

I found this PINK magazine holder at ROSS the other day...
on the clearance table for $1.50
I just love it...i have several magazine holders as I have
A LOT of magazines...
Great way to keep them all "put up" but easy to get to...
Actually....I need to organize them...maybe when wintertime
is here, while I sat in front of the fireplace....maybe.....
*
This is my white, scratched, beat up but pinky roses,
tole tray....off Ebay... it didn't cost very much and it isn't
as pretty as some of my others....but, it's ok..
*

I just love trays...and I think you can't have too many !
Especially when you are wanting to buy a black one..... just haven't found THE one yet...
*

I use them all the time for snacks...for breakfast in front of the tv...
*
AND...this luscious, PINK treat is for my friend...
JUSTINEY aka JUSTINE aka TINEY...
She can't eat sugar...*bah..humbug
so I wanted her to know about this icy treat, just in case she doesn't, already...
SUGAR FREE Strawberry Ice Cream
SUGAR FREE CRYSTAL LITE, RASPBERRY ICE
SUGAR FREE FRESH STRAWBERRIES ..*well, duh...
SUGAR FREE just a dollop WHIPPED CREAM
*
*Tiney, just mix that Crystal Lite into a pitcher, fill your pretty glass with ice cream, add the Raspberry Ice,
and I PROMISE...you will LUV it....and NO SUGAR !!
You can even fix one for JILL when she comes over and she'll think it's so good and you won't even
have to tell her there's NO SUGAR....:o)
*****
HAPPY PINK SATURDAY, EVERYONE.....

Evening, Dear BJness! Oh, lovely stuff today! I love your Pink magazine holder. I've never seen one like that before. And your tray ~ it's lovely! Now I'm going to wrestle Justiney for that strawberry drink - sugared or not! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;0

Kathleen Grace said...

Hi sweets! I sure wish we had a Ross around here because I could sure use a few of those magazine holders and it's so pretty! I think the tole tray is pretty, scratched or not and that sugar free ice cream drink looks soooo good! I may have to try that:>)

What a clever coaster for the mug ... a candlestick holder. A little vintage linen hankie underneath would have added another dimension, too. The tole tray is really nice, the are getting harder to find. TTFN ~Marydon

Justine said...

Justine :o )

Your magazine organizer is pretty with the paisley designs :-) Do you have more than one? They sure would look great standing with beside each other. Oh and I know it's not pink but the creamer pot with green polka dot is adorable :-)

Your friend can't eat sugar? Oh dear. The drink looks yummy but I want me some sweets on mine :-)

jeanne said...

Good morning BJ, I have missed you girl. It is early in the morning in Lexington Kentucky. Yep, we are traveling again. This trip is to visit Bill's aging aunt and his cousin and family. Aunt Dorothy is 89 and didn't remember us. It has been five years sine we last saw her. She was a minister up until she was 80. A remarkable woman with several books published. We are so saddened.

We are also going to Kansas again for a reunion baseball game with Bill's cyber friends Sports Forum.

I love your new header. It is beautiful. Lucky you to find the pink magazine holder and the Pink hand painted tray. It looks beautiful and if it is a little scratched that just gives it charm.

The strawberry drink looks luscious. You have a way with presenting your wonderful pink stuff. It all looks marvelous.

Have a wonderful day BJ.

Love, Jeanne

Candy said...

Love the collection. I am working on my mag collection this week, wish I had a dozen of those pretty ones. I'll just put a pretty pink label on the fronts;-)
Also enjoyed the tour and yummy foods on the vineyard tour.

Now I'm off to make me something cool and strawberryish!

Cheers, Candy

BJ, I think I am in love with that magazine holder. I mean - pink and paisley. I think that is as good as it gets.

Your tole tray is so pretty. I know you will find your perfect black one soon.

And, that drink looks too pretty to consume. But, I would anyway. ;-)

CC said...

Debra from Bungalow said...

HI BJ, I love your tray and have a few black ones. Your white one is so pretty! That drink is pretty to look at and I bet it's yummy too.

Nice pics...pretty vignettes!

jeanne said...

Hello BJ, I just slipped upstairs to feign a nap because I wanted to check my post today. I am so bad. Smiling. I can't help it, I am missing my friends so much.

I know I visited this morning but your idea of putting a glass in the Bo Boot is awesome. Why wasn't I smart enough to think of that. I am too tired to think smart these days. Yes, we are having fun but Bill's aunt is not good. I hate that. I did have a very long chat with her today and that made me happy.

Love you...Jeanne

♥Mimi♥ said...

Lovely! Thanks so much for such a lovely post today. Cold and windy and a little rainy here today. I truly needed a little lift☺

♥Have a terrific Pink Saturday♥

Wishing you and all those you love the best of weekends.

♥Mimi♥ said...

Ooops, forgot to mention. When I stopped by it was 91 in your neck of the woods...sadly, my neck of the woods is shivvering at 57 degrees and it's 4:30 in the afternoon!

Claudia said...

I love all your pinks, BJ. The magazine holder is so cute - I get sad when I see Cottage Living. I miss that great magazine! Happy Pink Saturday!

Itajeff @Something To Share said...

Happy Pink Saturday. The magazine holder is gorgeous.

I think that Justine needs to share - sugar or not it sounds great! I'm craving ice cream now. Cute pinks today, BJ. ~ Robyn

Mary said...

Hi BJ, so nice of you to stop by and visit my Pink Saturday blog. Your fairy dust is so nice - and your "pinks" are great - I found your black tray at a local shabby chic store - wish you could be here to buy it, but I know you'll find the perfect one. Be sure to visit again, and I'll be visiting you as well!

Light and Voices said...

So you purchased that Pink magazine holder at
Ross eh? As far as I know Ross is not available to shoppers in Chicagoland area. I have been there in Orlando area. I love that store. You certainly found a good buy and a useful product.
