Come Enjoy the Pink, It's Saturday again

My beauty in pink today comes from a trip to the flea market, We were visiting the flea market in Milton W.V. a couple of summers ago. I came across a booth on the outside of the building with some of the most beautiful pieces I had seem at a flea market in some time and so low priced I could not believe it.
Needles to say I began to shop, The lady was a very small elderly Italian lady, She I began to talk as I made my purchases, She told me her husband had cancer and she was clearing out a lot of her house for the extra money, most of her items had come from Italy with them many many years ago. It was so sad to hear her story. I purchased 8 or 10 items from her, This beautiful vase is marked on the bottom and has Italy on it. I bought it because I loved it. Sits in a perfect spot on the mantel. I think I paid $10.00 if I remember correctly. Perfect for Pink Saturday.



Be sure you take a ride over to Beverly's blog and check out of the pink goodness today. Just click on the little pink lady on the left.
Hugs,
Judy

The porcelain vase is a beauty. Amazing how those flowers are cut, and formed, and trimmed to create the perfect flower.
