Pink Saturday

Over the years I have become a big fan of the vintage style of decorating as it blends in so well with the cottage/shabby chic style that I love so much and have decorated my home in. I am especially drawn to vintage kitchen ware. It's easy to find and in most cases fairly inexpensive which is a good thing for a single girl like me who lives on a limited budget and still loves to shop the antique and thrift stores.

Several years ago I found this lovely set of pinky rose Pyrex nesting bowls. It has four bowls. Two in the pinky rose color and two in white with pinky rose details. They are so pretty and very functional and they get used quite frequently at my house.

It has four bowls. Two in the pinky rose color with the white leaf pattern

And two white bowls with the leaf pattern in the pinky rose color.


The next set of photos are of two different sets of vintage glasses that I found in diffrent antique stores. The first is a set of six juice glasses that have a pretty floral pattern with delicate pink, green and white flowers. They came with a sweet litte caddy that looks adorable sitting on the breakfast table.

Here is a closer view of the juice glasses that lets you see the detail better.


The other set is a set of 4 water glasses with the sweetest pattern of tea kettles, irons, coffee pot, coffee grinder and utensils. The patterns are done in delicate white, with a pretty pink scrolled trim along the top edge of the glasses and they also have hints of blue. I just love these glasses and I use them all of the time. I just worry that one day I may end up breaking one and not be able to find a replacement for them. I took a couple of different photos of the glasses so that you could see the fine details on them.




That’s it for my Pink Saturday posting. I hope you enjoyed your visit today. Now hop on over to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see a list of other Pink Saturday participant's and check out their blogs too.

Have a great weekend!!

Oh, those pink Pyrex bowls are to die for. I've been wanting some forever, but can only seem to find the avacado green and burnt orange 70's ones around here. What a lucky find you've got there!

Hi Kim, Happy Pink Saturday! I love the pink bowls and glasses are really pretty. I love kitchen vintage things too! I collect jadite but have been mixing pink with it. The hardest thing I'm trying to find is pink flatware. I found some doing a google search at %85.00 per place setting, can't afford that!
Thank you for stopping by!
Blessings, Shirl

Jan and Tom's Place said...

Hi and thanks for visiting me and the PINK pumpkins today!! I love your comments.

I love your glasses...and I bet if you ever wanted to add to your set, or replace a glass, you'd be able to find them on eBAY. I know I sold 2 sets of them there last year! So, they're around.

I don't care for the fall colors either...but definitely could decorate using the pink pumpkins! LOL!!

~Blessings,
Jan

I have those Pyrex bowls - but not in pink, I have them in yellow with black flowers. I do have however the Pyrex mixing bowls that everyone else has in the primary colors in pink. All 4 of my bowls are pink. They all were my Mom's. She was going to donate them to Goodwill and I snatched them away. Your drinking glasses sure are cute. ~ Robyn

Life on Bonnie Lane said...

I love vintage, and these bowls are awesome! They go great with those lovely glasses. Love the glass holder too!

I notice that you had a Battenburg lace cloth on the table. I love Battenburg lace and had them as curtains in my old house.

Hi Kim, Lucky you to find the pink bowls. I have those same bowls (wedding presents a gazillion years ago) but mine aren't pink...they are a butterscotch color. Happy belated Pink Saturday. ~ Lynn

I love your pink vintage finds. I actually got the pink with white bowls as a wedding present. Now I am wondering what happened to them over the years.

I had mixing bowls just like these that I used for many years. I just recently got rid of them - three of them that is. One got broke a long time ago. We had had them since the 50s or 60s. It was stupid stupid stupid. Wish I still had them.
I love the glasses.

I remember those bowls. I've seen some in yellow recently also. Yours are such a pretty pink.
Be careful with those lovely glasses too. I've really become fascinated with vintage too.
Thank you for sharing Pink Saturday.
