Pink Saturday With A Suitcase of Nostalgia

I'm excited to be joining another Pink Saturday. Beverly, over at is hosting another Saturday full of pink. Be sure to swing by there for a full list of participants. You can also click on my sidebar and it will take you right
there. :-)

This week I've filled another suitcase with a bit of pink and some vintage runners and doilies. A few years back I started collecting dolls of all kinds. The neighbors we lived next door to at the time found out about my latest obsession, and helped contribute to the cause. She surprised me with the gift of this sweet little doll. Not quite 12" long the perfect size for a little girl to play with. OK, so I wasn't so little but I sure enjoyed moving her around the pink and white bedroom. :-)

Isn't she just the sweetest thing you've ever laid eyes on? Bless her heart she almost looks like she's pouting.. maybe she's just shy with all the company today. :-) Aren't her dress and bonnet darling? Full of gathered lace. Underneath all her finery she has the sweetest pair of pantaloons on. No pictures of those girls, remember this is a family blog. l0l
I'm sure you remember a few posts back I spoke about all the counted cross stitch I've done over the years. This is one I did for my husband's birthday in 1984.
I fell in love with the phrase and thought it said how I felt about our love and marriage. Don't you love even the frame is in the shape of a heart?
Now, my little pouty baby can smile. I added a miniature tea set just for her. :-)
The small ballerina slippers are actually Christmas ornaments I used on the tree when I decorated with a Victorian theme. It would take some tiny feet to fill these up.

Beverly, thanks for hosting another fun-filled Saturday of pink. I'm off to see all the other beautiful pink, see you there.. hugs ~lynne~
