C'mon! Everybody do the Pink Saturday Stomp ...


You just know this hip groovy chick is excited that it's Pink Saturday! She has thrown off her scarf and tossed aside her typewriter so she's able to be totally in step with the day!
This cool (though foolish) babe probably doesn't have any fabulous pink toile in her home.
More than likely she has this fab pink bordered vintage tablecloth, complete with oh-so-moderne kitchen tools and serving pieces. If you would like to buy this blast from the past, it's available at Sharon's Antiques and Vintage Fabrics. I hardly think this delightful Victorian needle case would be used by our swingin bird ... but it's lovely just the same.
And I doubt she's hip enough to have anything like this exquisite piece of work. Made from deconstructed and reconstructed vintage fiber pieces including crochet, lace, and embroidery, with bits of assorted fabric and ribbon. Inspired by the fragile and ever changing petals of a pink rose. To see more of these fiber art pieces inspired by nature; created by deconstructing and reconstructing vintage fiber pieces including lace, crochet, and embroidery, click here. I don't know the artist's name - only her flickr i.d. BooDilly.

Wouldn't this be a super appetizer buffet to feature at your next oh-so-chic soirée? And you don't even have to worry about traffic flow, as it's on wheels and the buffet can go to the guests!
No doubt, there would be many photos of that posh buffet taken with this retro pink Polaroid ...

...and perhaps all the canapes and hors d'oeuvres were prepared on pink beauty! Perhaps even our original Pink Saturday Stomp girl has this in her bachelor girl's pad!I wonder if she creates beautiful Christmas decorations after she finishes using her bottle brush to clean up after the soirée.

This pink sofa is a bit too much on the stage decór side for me ... but, still, it is dramatic and would make quite a splash in a sunny solarium surrounded by gigantic plants ... and perhaps a white stone fountain?
On the other hand, I just love this room. I don't think I could live in a room that is so perfectly put together that by merely sitting in the room I would be spoiling the design. But, still, I love it...and I love that barely-seen pink sparkly egg-shaped light fixture in the corner.
I hope our lady with the pink knee socks doesn't have this room. For me, this is just pink gone terribly wrong. I know it's for a baby - but, the combination of the various shades of pink and all those patterns and the plethora of accessories just looks like a big heap to me. So why did I post a picture I think exhibits poor design? Mostly, because I was astounded that somebody would go through all this trouble to design a nursery, but choose not to cover over the concrete block walls. I mean, does anything really say soft and comforting like concrete?
I found this wonderful wonderful crown at Holly Doodle Designs. I suppose it would be greedy of me to say that I want this sent to me immediately so that I can add it to my ever-growing collection of hand made crowns. Well, I don't care. I want it. You should check out her site - she makes really really nice things. Mostly romantic and vintage looking and dangerous to the AmEx!

Well, we came in with our groovy secretary boogier, but I think we'll leave with one of my all time favorite actresses (Tilda Swinton, of course!). Who else could look that absolutely fabulous wearing a ribbon storage holder?
I hope you've enjoyed your visit here for Pink Saturday. Be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and see all the links to the wonderful sites participating in this popular event this week.

Now, get yourself inspired - and go make something beautiful! (Be sure to let me see!)
