Pink Day For Thrifting

Oh, I am really on a roll for
I even found some Pink treasures while thrifting
I just have to show you the Pink treasures.

I found this beautiful bowl and ladle at DI
It was in the collectible case when I first set my eyes on it.
When I went a couple of days later. . . . low and behold
They had just taken it out of the collectible case and marked it
$5. for both pieces. . . Wow! I just had to have the set.
 The bottom is marked Monetary Made In California
I looked it up on the Internet and I found that
The Monetary Art Pottery Company is another
California Pottery manufacturer.
The company was founded around 1948 and is no longer in business.
 They made a series of speckled dinner ware
This is called "Tickled Pink" or "Tickle Me Pink"
I absolutely love these pieces.
The ladle is so different.
I would date this dinner ware around 1950.

 I found these candle holders in the pink depression glass
What a treasure. 
My heart was racing when I saw them. . .
 This little Pink dish is such a delicate pink color.
It sits in my bedroom on my dresser. . .
I couldn't pass up this adorable mug
I don't normally buy mugs.
But this one is so Easter looking
I just thought it was so cute.
So there you have my Pink thrift finds.
I certainly hope I can find more!
(Oh, I'm not greedy, I just like PINK)
Just a little side note. 
I visited the cutest blog this week. .
Ash Tree Cottage
What caught my eye was some adorable
Frames she had done.
I love the fabric in these frames. . .You can click HERE

Come back again. . . .K
