Memories in Pink!

I've been enjoying some memories, lately ... and wanted
to share some things that prompted them.
I'm posting with Potpourri Friday The Friday Party and
Pink Saturday!   Make sure you click through to the parties
to see all the other posts!

None of these things belonged to me as a child, but I would have loved them.  The tatting thread on the right came right out of the sewing chest that we brought from my Mother-in-Law's house 35 years ago.   My husband and I couldn't part with her things after she died and our home is still filled with things like the sewing chest!  She and her mother tatted ... I've never been patient enough to do that!
The first gift of a book I ever received was Little Women and I just picked this up at an antique mall, just because it was pink.

I love the pink book cover ... it is the size of a little New Testament ... and I can't find mine ... but I'll dig it out and give it this new/old cover.  I think the tatting on the edge is precious and I can just see a 1950s little girl carrying it to Sunday School!   The Salt & Pepper girls in prayer are Lefton ... My favorite aunt collected Lefton!   

Old Rosie could have  come right out of the library at Lincoln Elementary School in Murphysboro, Illinois!  Lincoln was just two blocks from our house and we 
walked to and from ... and always home for lunch, too!   

I had a pony that nobody understood!  Powwow, a most politically incorrect name today, had been a carnival pony and all he really knew how to do was walk in circles!  He had always worn a bridle that had blinders on it and when my daddy put a normal bridle on him ... and me on his back ... he threw me off in seconds.  I ended up under the pony;  Daddy got down on the ground to get me and was laughing so hard that he couldn't talk.  Know what he did?  He put me right back on that pony and made him behave ... me in tears ... and Daddy laughing the whole time.

I'm launching a new blog party on March 25th.  
Check out Merriment Making Mondays!  
I've made it easy to participate!  Help me spread the word.


  1. What fun pink things for Pink Saturday. My fave is the Little Women - one of my favorites and that of some of my grandkids as well.

  2. HPS!

    Love Little Women and read it as a teen.


  3. Enjoyed seeing everything. Little Women was a favorite of mine, as well. I read it over and over when I was young. Sweet story about your pony. I'm glad he found a new home with you!
    I'm your newest follower!

  4. Love the little women figurines. I miss our old stories we used to read ... memories.

    I hope you will pop by to help us bring 'angel love' for a young girl who is sick.

    Thank you.
    Have a beautiful PS weekend ~

  5. Such sweet little treasures.. I loved our old books and figurines... Things have changed so much in fifty years..

  6. What a sweet story about your pony!! I also love old books and Little Women is def a favorite!

    Happy Pink Saturday!


  7. What lovely memories you've shared with us. Praying for everyone in your part of the country as you deal with these awful storms.

  8. Love your memories and your treasures. We had a pony that loved to throw anyone who was brave enough to try to ride him. If you did manage to ride for a few feet he would run to the fence and try to squish you. His name was Red Rover. We loved him anyway. I loved your pony story.
    Hugs, Jeanne

  9. such sweet pink things! happy pink saturday! xo

  10. Loved hearing about your pony. My best friend was a "horse girl", but I never was. The closest I came to have a horse was when one broke lose from it's fence and landed in our yard. We had a greenhouse and sold tomatoes, so every time someone came that day, we begged them to see if they knew who's horse it was. Finally at the end of the day, a couple came to claim it.

    Your little bookcover is very sweet. I too can imagine some young girl being proud as she carried her Bible to church each week.

    Thank you for your sweet comments on my tablescape today. Happy Pink Saturday!
