Pink Saturday - 3/21 - Pink Tea Room Depression glass




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!

Oh, JudyBug...this is an amazing pink post for us today. I loved every bit of it.
I am so so hoping to get to Canton at least one time this summer. It is about an 8 hr. drive from where I live but daughter and i are sure going to TRY!!
Love that Tea Room collection...

Pretty vase & table - love the bunnies. I have heard so much about Canton, but have never been. I have a feeling it is the kind of place I need to stay away from. :)

You all would make cute pink bunnies. Hang in there, you just might get a grand"bunny" of your own one day.

I sure would love to be able to go to Canton, but it would be a long...drive.

I love your vase. You're right about photographing pink Depression glass. I have a hard time getting good pictures, too.

Happy Pink Saturday, Judy.

JudyBug, What pretty pieces you have for Spring Easter decor...I love the pink depression glass.
Oh yes, please take a pic of My Dumpling in the pink bunny suit - reminds me of The Christmas Story :-). Alas, if I had the figure in the pink cocktail outfit, I think you would just see my pink skin :-)!

Hi Judybug, what a perfectly pretty pink post, love the glass and bunny and all the extra pinkness is so cute, Kathy.

You are cute as a bug! I love depression era glass and china. I don't know what happened to me, but once I got over 40, I started going gaga over the stuff. Luckily I inherited quite a bit.
