PINK Saturday ~ My Victorian Pink Living Room Part 1

WELCOME dear blogging friends to another PINK Saturday.
This week our hostess Beverly of HOW SWEET the SOUND asked us to share
a favorite Christmas Holiday memory.

So before I get into my PINKness for this week I was wracking my
fuzzy memory banks to come up with some memories of my growing up
years.  I am the oldest of 4 girls and always loved that my
mom would decorate for this season.  A cherished
memory is of her Silver tree with the rotating colored wheel.
She would decorate this all up with pretty blue balls that
matched the rug in our living room.  It meant so much to me
that a few years ago when hubby's brother was going through his
home that belonged to grams he asked if we'd want
an old box which was....VINTAGE  SILVER Tree.  It was the kind that you
had to put every single branch into place...lotsa work that is for sure.
AND of course I said YES, YES, YES!!!
It's a memory that I shared with my sisters and now one of my sisters
a silver tree for herself.
Sadly, with my three kitties, 2 of which would chew
on this tree, I have not been able to put it out..but someday!

On to PINKness.  Today I am sharing some PINKNESS in my Living Room.  Now
this is MY room and I have it all done up in a Victorian pinky/mauve style.
I seem to do this room first cause I love it so!

My white/pink froofy tree!



I loaded some of my creamy white containers with pink goodies too!


Sweet glowing angel!









You can hardly see my sweet daughters picture towards to top.  I just had to put this on, she made this when she
was quite young.  Its her school picture on a snowflake..and
guess what color she's wearing...PINK!

More yummy pinks!



wow..can't believe how read these are looking..but they are pink
I assure you! lol

Okay...that's it for this week.  I am going to show more of this room
next week so come back then for more pinkness!

Thanks for stopping by and I love reading your comments.
I will try as hard as I can to come and visit those who stop
by. Don't be shy!

Blessings...Lorena

PS...I apologize to those who come in...I have been having some Horrid Porno Spam come into my blog so I have had to activate my being able to
respone w/o these getting posted.  Sorry for the extra
posting comments steps...but a neccessity right now!

Beverly said...

Lorena, guess what! My mother had a silver tree she decorated with blue balls, too. I used to love to sit and watch it change colors as the wheel would spin. I thought it was the most beautiful thing ever.

I love your gorgeous decorations, and I can't wait to see more next week.

Happy Pink Saturday.

Hi Lorena,
I just had to come back and check out your blog again. I think we may be kindred spirits as we both love the Rose Chintz pattern. My auntie supplied most of mine as she has always had this pattern herself. There are not too many of us out there. Thanks for stopping by today and leaving your nice comments. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Happy Belated Pink Saturday. I remember my mom decorating the tree in all blue balls one year too.

Shirl said...

Hi Lorena, Happy Pink Saturday, what sweet memories of your Christmas. I remember my parents getting a silver tree with a color wheel. They got that in the 60's. We missed the real tree so eventually they went back to that. Your decorating is just beauitufl!
Have a great week!
