A Pink Saturday Celebration!

This is the second anniversary of Beverly's Pink Saturday ... and how far Beverly has taken this fun weekly event. Hundreds of participants - and a feature in Artful Blogging, no less! She has also counted over 800 participants over that time. Now, that's a lot of pink love!

I've had fun participating over the past year ... yes, I was a Johnny-come-lately to the event! I thought I would repost some of my favorite pink discovery collections I've put together this year for Pink Saturdays.

If you don't remember these postings, feel free to click each mosaic/collage and get a larger image so you can get a better look!

We've found it all; from the irreverence of pink appliances ...
to part of my own stash of pink art supplies ...
and then on to see how pink transforms a bathroom into a fantasy world...
It was a blast finding pink chandeliers for every room and style in the house!
And it's incredible to see the various styles and periods that are enhanced in home decór with a little pink added to the mix...Could haute couture exist without pink of every shade?

... and the hottest designers seemed to always have some pink extravagances on the shoe shelf!
Is any toy as much fun if it's not glow-in-the-dark neon pink?! Nothing beats a Magic 8 Ball that will tell your fortune if it's in the shape of Jesus!
So, to celebrate Beverly's Pink Saturday fête, I'm having a giveaway. Hurrah! Every birthday celebration should have a birthday gift, right?!


I found this while I was out shopping the other day. I think it is THE coolest night light ever. Now, I don't use/need/want a night light - even a super cool one like this. So I decided that I would buy it for a giveaway, and if the winner feels the same way I do about night lights, there is sure to be a youngster around that would appreciate it!

From the Lights in the Night series from Seasons of Cannon Falls comes this fun and fanciful mermaid in the ocean nightlight!


The water bubbles; the glitter flies, the starfish bounces around, and the entire base lights up. Seriously fun and fanciful, right?! And, it's big! When it comes to fanciful, size matters!
So, all you have to do is leave a comment on THIS post only, and tell me if you are going to keep it or give it to a youngster. No other criterions - you don't even have to post it on your blog or become a follower (though, if you're not a follower, make sure I can contact you!).

Since this is in celebration of Beverly's Pink Saturday 2nd Birthday, the contest will only run until tomorrow (May 30) at 8am. I'll announce the random number generator winner by noon tomorrow. Fast and fun!

Be sure to check out all the other people celebrating Beverly's Pink Saturday 2nd Birthday today ... and then find someplace that stimulates your inspiration ...and go make something beautiful!

An enchanting Pink Saturday post, Tristan!!!

Boot ~C said...

while my darling niece would expect me to give it to her, I would keep it for myself & put it in my beadroom. I'm thinking it would go beautifully w/ the day of the dead, heart & devil theme I have going!

Pattee said...

Wait a minute... weren't we just celebrating your Birthday!!! Did you have a Great one?

My grandma had a pink stove and pink refrigerator not to mention a pink tun, toilet bowl and sinks... I loved loved loved her pink things....

: ) Pattee
Have a good week-end Tristan~

Sherry Goodloe said...

I am soooo glad I don't have any youngster to try to talk me out of this if I win because I would hate to have to tell them they couldn't have it! LOL Ooooh yes, I will DEFINITELY be keeping (and using) this if that random generator counter thingie picks ME! :)

Hope you had a marvelous time today for your Birthday!

caren said...

Tristan ~ I hear it's your birthday too! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I always love your posts - such fun, whimsical things you find in pink. Your giveaway is epic : ) Happy Pink Saturday.

Tamara C said...

This is delightful - as are YOU, birthday boy! :) I have no shame in saying that I would keep it and put it in my bathroom, as every bathroom needs a mermaid or two, right?!

I see the bridge! said...

Oh I will come out of stalking...I mean hiding to leave a comment for this post...Happy Birthday to you also, I hope you made a wish that comes true for you.
OK if I were to win ( highly unlikely plus I live in Australia and wouldn't expect you to send it here), I too would keep this lovely light in my bathroom: so the children don't fight over it...of course it doesn't go with anything but that is the point...and I do live on an Island...such a good excuse for a sparkly mermaid light.

A truly fabulous post (as always). I so much appreciate the time and effort you put into your posts - they're always fun, informative and just a little kitsch which I adore! That lamp is perfect.

ooh I would so love to win this for myself it is just gorgeous think my 14 year old daughter might have other ideas thanks for such a fab prize happy pink saturday:)

Lululiz said...

Woah, massive pink overload, lolol, what an amazing collection of pink perfection!
Would I be a very bad person if I denied my granddaughter this fabulous night light, should I win it? Its such fun, I'd love to watch it myself for a while. But I would of course let her use it every time she stays with us.

Linda said...

Tristan what a great post and I enjoyed your collages of past posts! Happy Pink day, if I were to win your lovely mermaid it would go to my granddaughter who's favorite disney princess is the mermaid.

Good morning, love! What a fabulous array of photos of the past year in PINK! I didn't even have the time to find a good pink theme, but you have taken it to the top and we love it all. IF I WERE TO WIN THE MERMAID, I would give it to my favorite student!!! Anita

Yay! Happy Birthday! I would totally have to keep it for myself. Tehe. I have a shell theme in my bath and it would fit right in.

Happy Pink Saturday! Oh how I would love a 1950s pink kitchen!!!!

That is a neato nightlight, wow! If I won it, I think I would give it to Toot for her room, she'd get a kick out of it for sure!

Sea Witch said...

Hey, you forgot the pinkiest of them all....Pinky Tuscadero. Love love love the footware collage. I want every pair featured. Now, a glittery mermaid nightlight...how dare you tease this mermaid...Dusty's generator had better pick this Sea Witch.

Okay Tristan,

You know, it takes a talent for proper Pink Bloggery and you are the star!!! I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with your Pink Saturday celebration post. OMG so much pink madness, I love it .

The best part about Pink Saturday is that I have met the most wonderfully creative and fun people like you.

Wishing you a Happy Pink Saturday Birthday, and many more pink posts to come.

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

I really enjoyed spending time going back over so many of your pink items, it was like a fairy tale revisited..fantastic. I think the night light is adorable and even though I do have to have a night light...lol..I'm just a big old baby .. I'm afraid if I win my Granddaughter will claim it, so I guess if I win I will give it away.

PS I'm a new follower.

Roselle said...

All that pink! I am in heaven!!! The pink appliances are to die for. Since I am a misplaced mermaid, I would keep the nightlight for myself. I would put it in our small powder room so all of the family could enjoy her.
Thanks for a great Pink Saturday Post.
Warmly,
Roselle

Elizabeth said...

I did a retrospective of past PS posts, also! I've got a giveaway for a great summer book at my blog right now. Hope you'll check it out.

Claudia said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Tristan! And Happy Birthday as well! At the risk of sounding selfish - I would keep the nightlight for myself!

Come see me soon and enjoy your weekend! Anne

Bill C. said...

Now that is what I call a pink post! Your blog is always the greatest.

Okay. I'm going to confess. I love mermaids! I've loved mermaids since I was a kid when we saw them in Weekie Wackee. (I'm not even sure what the name is actually. It's been too long. It's the place in Florida. I'm sure they had a pink mermaid, though.) In other words, I'd keep the night light if I won it! :o) Many happy bubbles to you!

Cape Cod Rambling Rose said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TRISTAN!!! And Happy Pink Saturday! I love all of your mosaics, especially the one with the kitchen appliances, and the one with the SHOES!!! As for that FABU nightlight... are you kidding me??? That would go into my VERY OWN BOUDOIR (though I'm sure my little girl would snatch it up on me)!!! My beachy house is sans mermaid at the moment! ;O

CollectIn Texas Gal said...

Hey Tristan....I hear it's your birthday...Karen's shouting it out to every Pinkie that passes by, so I thought I'd better get over here and meet you! I can't believe I've not been here before! Man, you have it 'Goin'On InPinkness'...as we say in Texas...or at least that's what I say! Wow everyone of your collages and pictures are fantastic, and after I finish eating all the cake in the world of Pink Saturday, I plan on coming back and catching up.

I say Yep to the Bubblin'Glittery Mermaid Light...do I have to decide right now about keepin or givin? Okay, I'll give to my GrandGal...she'll love it, and maybe she'll let me spend the night in her room.

I know it's a long way from CT to TX, but I hope you'll make a quick trip to visit my Pink Saturday Post on CollectInTexas Gal....Sue

Deborah said...

OOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo I want to live in the Genie Bottle! If I won, I would give it to my friend's autistic 5 year old little boy. I think he'd find it soothing. **kisskiss** Deb

Deborah said...

Thanks for the Pink Retrospective Tristan. It is fun to see the many unexpected ways pink does turn up. The night light is so cute. I agree with another commenter in putting it in my bathroom. It would be quite wonderful there. My nephew may try to steal it though hmmm) ...

I know the perfect little girl who would LOVE this light, though it will be hard to give away. It's just so cool!

Pattee said...

Wow pink it is!!!
I love the last picture and think I might decorate with this in mind.. I'm trying to get more color in to my life and hot pink is one of them!

That stove and refrigerator is exactly the color and style my grandmother had!!!!

Sue said...

You are definitely in-the-pink with this post. I really enjoyed the flashback of your pink posts and remember how much I enjoyed them all at the time.

Love that mermaid nightlight. I've never seen anything quite so over the top in nightlights before. Its friggin amazing! Unfortunately, I do not need a night light and don't have any little kiddies to gift it to, so if I should be so lucky to be random-number-picked please do another pick for someone that can use and enjoy it.

Hope you had a great birthday - and enjoy your weekend.

Hugs

JEANNE said...

HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY TRISTAN!!! Many happy returns of the day.

I love that you featured your posts in a mosaic. I missed many of them to my dismay. Gorgeous is the only word that comes to mind.

I would be delighted to enter your giveaway. How beautiful and different this night light looks. I am intrigued. I would keep it absolutely. thank you for the opportunity to win such a lovely gift.

Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend.
Hugs, Jeanne

The Joy of Nesting said...

Oye Kiddo,

Have I ever told you that all things mermaid is one of the things the Pearl of the Pacific (Mazatlan) is known for??? Well now you know! Although actually I think this beauty might need to call her home up in the Northlands with the grandbabies. A little reminder of where GM &GP live!
