Happy Pink Saturday! I can just feel the PINKNESS in the air! Pink Saturday is hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.
Today, I think we'll look at some Depression Glass. I know you probably have a million things to do today and time's a wastin'. There's milk to churn, fields to plow, beans to pick, meals to cook, bread to bake...hmm, would you guess I've been reading an Amish novel?
Anyway, back to Depression glass. For Spring, I love to pull out the pink Depression glass. I cleaned off the coffee table in living room and decided on my Pink Depression Tea Room flared vase.
This is such a lovely piece. Tea Room was made by Indiana Glass form 1925 to 1931. It is one of the earliest Depression Glass patterns.
Aren't the little bunnies cute? They came from Hobby Lobby several years ago.
Pink Depression glass is so hard to photograph. The color just seems to wash out but it's really a gorgeous color!
Here's a few other pics of Tea Room I wish I owned!
I stumbled across this set in Canton, TX. If you've never been to First Monday in Canton, you've missed a whole "nother" world! This has been going on for over 150 years. Here's a great story in Country Living magazine. I hope to be there next month.
Before I go (work to be done you know!), I thought I would give you some ideas for Easter!
If I had a grand-daughter (hint, hint OnlySon), I would dress her in this -
Boudreaux would be a star in this!
And Mr. Dumpling would wear this -
And me? What about this?
Hmm, I don't think so! We would look more like this!
That's all Folks!
