Inside or Outside, if it's Saturday, it's PINK SATURDAY!

Well, I'm back to thrifting at Goodwill again this week☺ The little lamp above is still sitting around my house without a shade or a permanent place to rest itself, but I'm sure that over time the light will go on in my head and I'll know just where this cutie pie should spend some time.
As I was walking through my Goodwill Store it hit me, good grief, there they were, all lined up and set for their blogging debut! My local store arranges ladies' clothes by color and by size. So if you want a pink sweater or a pink blouse or a pink nightie or a pink shirt...there you go, all in a row! Of course, they also have other colors (go figure) but this is Pink Saturday so that's what I aimed my camera at for a photo or two. They sure make it convenient for you, don't they?
This bush is a part of the pink garden on the side of my house that I mentioned last week. Now, don't ask me what's the name of this flowering shrub because I lost the tag ages ago. But, if one of you can tell me, I'd sure be happy about that, especially since a friend of mine asked the other day and I had to tell her that I didn't have a clue. Every June literally thousands of blossoms pop out on this reliable stand-by to welcome summer into my neck of the woods. Did I tell you that I l♥ve pink?
Isn't this something? My Christmas cactus that turned into an Easter cactus a while back has now decided that it is going to be a Welcome Summer cactus! Talk about fickle! I'm just happy that it bloomed because the poor thing has been mangled by the lovely Miss Camille Suzanne numerous times over the years. It really, really has a will to survive!

Last week everyone fell in ♥ with Miss Camille Suzanne's little, pink tongue so I thought I'd close this Pink Saturday with another photo I took of her as she was washing her delicate pink and white toes! How do I get these pictures? Well, my camera sits by my laptop and there is a folded blanket on the table next to me so Camille can be near her momma to nap or to bathe and snoopervise! And, boy can she snoopervise!

That's it for me this week. Be sure to drop by Beverly's HOW SWEET THE SOUND, our hostess for this wonderful event. There is a list a mile long of gorgeous blogs that you can visit for a pink fix unlike anything in cyberspace. See you next week!

It's lovely to see a mass of pink flowers. I'm hopeless at remembering names of plants - I just know whether I like them or not, lol.

Wow..., that line up of pink clothing is impressive. Does this mean now that all these folks don't like pink anymore.., or that a lot of people really love pink!

Happy PINK Saturday Mimi,
What lovely pinks this week..I need to go checkout my local Goodwill. I've found the Salvation Army and it's very tiny but the Goodwill looks bigger....there are so many antique, junk, flea markets and consignments store here I don't know where to begin! :0)

Thanks for visiting me for PS. I always enjoy hearing from you!

Hugs, Stephanie

Sweet Little Camille! I love all of your pinks, including that lovely Weigelia bush! I am guessing it is the Wine and Roses cultivar.


Regina said...

Nice pink, love the lamp.
Happy weekend.

Lynn said...

What an organized Good Will!
I love your kitty!
Did you see my daisy pasture on my blog?
We'll just let the horses and cows mow them!

Tami said...

A lovely blog!
Happy Pink Saturday!..xo Tami

MiniMadWoman said...

Yep, definitely a Weigelia! I have three of these beauties in my yard and in the spring it's gorgeous around here! My neighbor has some too . . . much bigger than mine, but mine bloom more prolifically!

I hope that little lamp finds a home and I just love the pink sweaters at the Goodwill . . . don't you just love the Goodwill?!

Thanks so much for sharing!

Happy Pink Saturday,

Hello Mimi,

Such a sweet post! I got a chuckle out of the line up of pink clothing. I never imagined a thrift shop would do that.

That flower is incredible and how amazing it has survived Ms. Camille Suzanne. *Snoopervise* hahahahahaha! LOVE it!

Great line up of pinks.
I have a small bush with flowers similar to yours. I believe it is a Weigela bush.
Thanks for dropping by.

Your PINKS are wonderful!! And so nice to meet a fellow thrifter. Goodwill near my house in Northern Los Angeles also arranges clothing by color.

Beansieleigh said...

Oh, I LOVE the little pink lamp, and by all means, if you can't find a place for it, please do let me know! I'm sure I can find a place for it here!! As for your Christmas cactus... Did I not just say in a recent post that I cannot get mine to flower AT ALL... and here YOURS is flowering THREE or FOUR TIMES A YEAR?!!! I just don't even hear this! Nope... I'm not listening!! You're just pulling my leg, I just know it!! (0;
