Another Pink Saturday!

Hello and welcome to Pink Saturday! Last weekend I
attended an Antique Fest downtown. I have never been to
this annual event and it was so much FUN! They had outdoor
vendors and lots of yummy goodies like elephant ears and
snow cones to eat while you shopped. I could have stayed
there all day soaking up the atmosphere and the sunshine.
It was beautiful out. I also went on a Sunday, so the vendors
were willing to wheel and deal!

This young man, my Nephew, came shopping with my Cousin,
my Sister, and I. He was a trooper! He shopped with the best
of them for 2hrs 15min and then he hit the wall. He was done.
He only had about a 20 minute wait however before his other
Auntie took him to the park to play.

So here is a bit of what I came away with. This pretty rose
bowl that set me back a whole $1. This was my first purchase
and I just about broke the bank!

My Mom and I have been on the hunt lately for a tablecloth to
go on the patio table and I found this marked $12. It's in
excellent condition and I actually only paid $10 for it.

Now this pretty little frock, I did NOT by. I thought is was
gorgeous, so I snapped a few pictures. The price, not so
gorgeous at over $400!

I also came away with a couple of adorable aprons. One is
red/white checked and the other is purple/white checked.
They didn't fit the color scheme so I didn't include them. I
also bought a small 5 lb. white flour sack
, with pink writing
that miraculously has my last name on it, which is why I didn't
show it either. A great find by my Cousin-Pony Girl! She found
one for herself as well, without a name match. We thought they
make cute pillows once we stuffed them.

This pretty LADY here is the giveaway print I won, made by
the artist Chelsea Rose. I immediately poked her in this pink
frame and she looked right at home. I ADORE her!

Happy Pink Saturday everyone! Be sure to pop over to
blog at How Sweet The Sound to find all the pink
Have a wonderful weekend!

xinex said...

I wish I could have been with you, Sares. I love events like that. Your nephew is so cute and so patient to shop with you all...Christine

Pony Girl said...

Great finds, Sares! I didn't know you got the plate or the tablecloth. I LOVE that dress! Bummer that is the one that is $400, that would be cool for my event this spring, although, the topline might not be too flattering one me, LOL! It was a lot of fun treasure hunting all weekend, I'll have to save my pennies so we can do it again this fall! I mean, I treasure hunt all the time, but not quite like I did that weekend!

Rebecca Nelson said...

Sweet Sares...I love all the pink but today I want to ask you something else...

What is the story behind your NAME? I love it and I've never heard it before!

Share, will you?


Rebecca Nelson said...

Sares...I also have a "name" given to me by a grandparent. It's not my blog name...just a pet name. I think it would be fun!

Go for it! We all need something new!

Hi Sares,

What a lovely day you must have had.
The plate for $1 is a good buy and the table cloth and frame you got for your Artwork is lovely.

Enjoy your weekend

Sares- What a great time you all had. Love the nephew on the fire hydrant. He looks so happy there. I love the tablecloth. I have to admit that is my weakness as I love linens. I have so many I can't even fit them in my china cabinet below anymore. I am going to have to move them to the hall closet. Thanks for sharing this wonderful Pink Saturday. Stop by and say hi. Country Hugs, Sherry

Cold, dark, misty in my neck of the woods. My perennials are hiding and I am wearing a sweatshirt. Coming here today made my day a little brighter. Thanks so much.

I'm a little late with my Pink Saturday visits because I had my grandsons for the weekend and couldn't tear myself away from them☺

♥Wishing you and yours a week full of happiness♥

Thank you for entering and for being such a doll.

This was a fun day, especially spending it with my loved ones! Your new tablecloth looks very summerish (I know that isn't a word!) on the patio table.
