Happy Pink Saturday

Good Morning and I do mean Morning, It is nearly 2:a.m. and I can't believe I am sitting at this puter. Have been playing around trying to learn some new things with my blog but not having much luck.
I traveled to Tennessee today from West Virginia, School starts on Monday for Miranda.
Today I thought I would share a few of my swan collection. I love the ones with roses on them and as you see most are pink.
I have all different sizes. have been collecting for years.
My sister gave me a sign that says everything collector and this is so right.
sometimes you look at some of the collections you have and ask why did I ever start this. My Mom use to have a thing for elephants and when she passed away she had more than 300 elephants in all sizes.

These little one are salt dips.

Hope you enjoy your travels through all the blogs today. I know from experience it is hard to visit all of them. I always try to visit the ones who have visited me. I hope I don't miss anyone. Just click on the little pink lady on the left and she will take you over to visit Beverly and on to the fun.
Hope you have a blessed pink week

Hi Judy, I happened by your blog from the listing on the "howsweetthesound" blog. Your collections and your painted items are just lovely. You are very talented. My heart stood still with grief when I read the post about the loss of your daughter, such a beautiful girl and obviously so loved by you and your family. You have great strength and it will see you through this hard year.
Kind Regards
Judith from Australia

Good Morning Judy and Happy Pink Saturday. Love the swans. I remember my grandmother had a few in her collection of glassware. I didn't know they made swans that were salt dips. My husband has several cut glass ones that belonged to his Mom, but I really like the swan ones. They would be so elegant on the table. Thanks for sharing. Stop by and say hi. I would love to have you visit. Country Hugs, Sherry

Bea said...

Hi Judy,
The swans are simply lovely! Love them! Happy Pink Saturday.


MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

300 elephants? Wow! How many siblings are you? Did you divide it amongst yourselves? Still - that planty. Do you think you'll ever reach that number with the swans too? :-) They are so pretty and I'm sure they are beautiful to look at together.

Happy Pink saturday!

Never saw so many swans before. That is a real neat collection. Who dusts all those things? Or are you like me, just dust once a year?

Mary said...
