Pink Saturday

This was a thrift find.  An old and stained pharmacy bottle.  Nothing special but when a pretty pink seam binding ribbon and paper rose are attached it becomes a darling little collectible.  Imagine one pretty bloom in this sweet glass piece!
I am drawn to the simplicity of it.
I am trying to scale back in my home and my life.  I want peace.  I am the type of person, that when surrounded by clutter,  piles, and a mess I tend to feel like a cluttered mess.
I have been slowly (due to health issues) recycling, trashing and putting away what isn't needed or used. 
I found these vintage beauties thrifting last year.  I am having a Christmas In July sale in my shop, so they have been cleaned off, given a photo shoot and are displayed.  They are so pretty in this vintage soup bowl.  Too pretty to put on a tree and not be able to enjoy their beauty up close and personal.
This adorable ornament dates back to the 1940's.  It's marked West Germany.  It's glass and unfortunately, it has a few pink prick holes in it.  But I rescue ornaments whenever I find them, so I couldn't pass it up.

I am joining up today with Bev over at How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday.

Happy Weekend All!

Happy Pink Saturday, Roselle! The ornaments are lovely and I like what you did with the bottle. It's amazing what some ribbon can do. Have a lovely weekend.

Roselle, hello...

I echo your sentiments about peace. I, too, mostly because of my job, am craving peace. I think uncluttering is a good place to start.

The bottle looks very pretty with the ribbon and rose. It certainly would make a delightful vase for a beauty.

Blessings for peace in your life,

Hi Miss R...I'm so glad you stopped by to see me. I always love it when you do.

I love your pinks! I especially love bottles. I find them all the time and just snagged a few new ones yesterday at GoodWill. I love the unusual ones, don't you? They are getting harder to find. Just like ornaments!

Hope you are well and enjoying your summer.

Your Christmas ornaments are gorgeous. Isn't it incredible how the little ribbon around the pharmacy bottle transforms it completely.

I may be a guy, but I think pink brightens up everything. Beautiful pieces! Have a happy Pink Saturday!

I've just downsized and let go of many beloved items so I know how hard it can be...but liberating in a way too! I think your bottle and ornaments are just lovely.
