Told you so.................there's a fabulous array of really vintage Christmas ornaments, including fabulous PINK Shiny Brite balls from the 50's and 60's, awaiting you at SuzAnna's Antiques and the prices are the best around - will not break your budget at all!
All these are in our friend Jeannie's great booth, and I just know she probably has a lot more in her own adorable cottage shop in downtown Hillsborough, North Carolina. So, if you're close to that location be sure to look her up at Uniquitiques ~ Antiques & Interior Design. Don't you just love the dusty pink mixed with aqua?
Even the vintage boxes are adorable. Most of these are real blown glass ornaments, remember how your kitty, pup, or toddler, would knock one off and it would shatter into a hundred pieces........but you didn't get mad because it was just another of those wonderful Christmas traditions! I forgot to check, but I have a strong feeling these were actually made in the USA by hard working Americans and, unlike Martha's plastic ones, didn't float thousands of miles across oceans after being made by people, including children, working for meagre, way below poverty level, wages! Oops, started to climb up on the soap box there..............getting down right now! I just know you have better things in mind for your weekend than listening to me spout off about America's loss of jobs, and poor quality wares from distant shores being foisted upon us!!
So dear friends, Happy Pink Saturday.........hope you've started any shopping you need to do for the holidays. Meanwhile take a coffee break and stop by Beverly's How Sweet the Sound blog to enjoy many great pink posts.
