Bev's Pink Saturday-Pink Depression Glasses

It's that time again....where did this week go???

I really have been hitting the mother load between thrift stores, curb junque and local antique shops. Sometimes I shop and I shop and I shop and find nuttin!!! The last two weeks have been like a big jackpot for me. I am so excited and don't know where to start first with my painting! I only found a few goodies to keep for myself. I will show those treasures in a few of next week's posts.

For Pink Saturday, I will show one of my all time favorite scores from thrift shopping. I frequent a local hospital thrift store (all sales support the hospital auxillary). Mostly I find goodies to paint. Old things, forgotten things, ugly things just waiting for a cottage chic makeover! I have only found something for me to keep for myself once or twice and never anything of value. Well, one day while shopping for my art, I came across this lovely set of Pink Depression Glass cordial glasses. Now....can I tell you how much I love Pink Depression Glass? Not only the color but the time period it came from? Everything about it calls to my ever-loving-romantic-days-gone by vintage soul. LOL I love how delicate and fragile these little glasses are. They are very lightweight and almost feel thin if that makes any sense. Anyway, I paid a whopping one dollar for the set. They reside in my china closet and entertainment hutch. I move them around depending on the season or my Gemini whims. At Christmas, I put tiny white and silver balls inside of them. The ones in my hutch usually hold sea shells. You never know where I will move them next.

Have a great weekend everyone!

so pretty and delicate. I can just imagine them filled with balls at Christmas time. I think 1/2 the fun of thrift shopping is the hunt, you never know what you'll find but oh joy! when you do.
Happy Pink Saturday

I wish I had a store like that here. Your find of those glasses was a blessing. They are truly beautiful.

You were describing your feelings about pink depression glass and I'm thinking "right on!"-then you mentioned you are a Gemini-well so am I. Is this how all Geminis' feel? Welcome to Pink Saturday!
