Peek-a-boo! You'll never guess what I have for Pink Saturday for you to see!

Peek-a-boo! Bet you'll never guess what I've got for you this week. I don't think any of the items are related but all of them are a little interesting☺ The little kitten that you see was a garage sale bargain from several years ago. I just love her playful attitude!
Of course, most, if not all of us, know the classic Breast Cancer ribbon and color, don't we? Well, here's a jar that sits on my kitchen counter filled with little marshmallows my grandsons grab when they are over visiting or when we decide we would like some hot cocoa during a sleep-over when we settle in for some popcorn and a movie.

This mirror is in my dining room. I noticed that it reflected quite a bit of pink, so decided to include it this week in my blog post. Believe it or not, I bought this antique mirror for $30.00 at a garage sale about seven years ago. What a steal! It's huge making it a real task to get it home in one piece. I think I held my breath over each and every bump and around all of the corners as my car slowly crept through the city!
When I finished up with cleaning the kitchen on Friday evening I was just about ready to put away the pan I had used for my eggs that morning and stopped in my tracks. I grabbed the camera, told the pan to smile and the rest is history. BTW, yes, I have a set☺
I've always featured five items and was running out of ideas when I spied my library book on the kitchen table all set to be returned tomorrow. The pink band is for the library use, not mine, since they have to be aware that the book is part of an inter-library loan and has to be returned to its library of origin. And, you get a double whammy because of all things, the book is sitting on the fresh tablecloth I put on today just before I started my laundry.

So, there you have it...my unrelated-items-Pink-Saturday. A little hodge podge of goodies that celebrate my favorite color. Be sure to get over to Beverly's place HOW SWEET THE SOUND so you can visit all the other lovely blogs today. There are some abundantly creative women, and a couple of men, waiting to entertain you.

Aawwww Mimi, I adore the little kitty just cause I like her doing a "one-eye" peek-a-boo.

Now those pink pans, I don't think I'll be able to use them LOL Maybe just display oorrrr may it'll make me linger more in the kitchen :-)

Do you think the library where that book came from has a pink lover librarian or owner?

(no pink post for me today, just visiting)

That kitty is just too cute! It's cold for me here in central IN too...63 degrees in the middle of July!
I didn't realize that you're in MI...I'm a wolverine myself from Hillsdale County down in the tri-state area but I've been transplanted here in IN for over 20 years.
Happy Pink Saturday!

Mimi, look at that cute kitty and all of your pretty pinks! This is such a cute post!

I can't believe how cold you said it was in Michigan because it's HOT here. Come down and see us, and we can warm you up fast here in Florida. LOL! It's about to rain so that should cool things off here. I'm glad we cut the grass at our little retreat in St. Augustine late yesterday because that means Mr. Magpie won't have to swim with his lawnmower! :-)

Your pink skillet is so cute. Wish I had that and some pink pancakse to go with it!

Love to you on PS...

You do have a lot of pink things. Love the pink pan. Thanks for taking the time to stop my blog again and leaving such a nice comment. I hope you have a great Pink Saturday!

I Love the Kitty but that mirror is sensational!!!
Happy Pink Saturday!!

Rita said...

What a lovely blog you have here. So glad I found you.

All of your pink items seem so at home here.

I especially liked the recipe for the blueberry angel food. I will have to make that. Angel food is one of the few desserts a diabetic can have, and if made with splenda does not leave that guilty feeling of having cheated after enjoying a large slice.

Thanks for visiting my place. Hope we can get together again soon.

Kitty and the smiling pink pan are stealing the show.
Have a fabulous day.

I like your pink post Mimi! I keep wishing my pots and pans would wear out then I could buy some pink cookware! Shame on me...
Have a wonderful pink weekend!

Hope the sun comes out tomorrow!
Happy Pink Saturday!

Charlotte said...

Oh my goodness. Just when I was clicking on the comment thing I spied the blueberry angel food cloud. Yum. That looks so delicious.
Pink is my favorite color too. Great pink post here. The mirror is beautiful. Great find for sure. The pink band on the library book is a nice pink touch and I'll bet it helps them get books back.
Happy Pink Saturday.
