In the Pink

Welcome to one of the sweetest and girliest days in Blogland, Pink Saturday! This wonderfully fun event is hosted by Beverly from How Sweet the Sound. On her blog there is a list of over 100 participants sharing something pink today, so be sure to check some of them out.
This week I have some vintage get well cards to share with you. They all have pink in them, of course! I thought it was a good time for get well messages, since so many people are getting colds and the flu.This carnation is very simple, but has a real ribbon around it. The painting looks so real, doesn't it?I really like this card with the arbor. The tree, branches, and house that look tan are actually golden. The paper is a double-fold and its texture is similar to parchment.Isn't this puppy cute? I thought Patty from Pip Stitch would really like it since she has lots of dog-themed items.I saved this for last for a reason: it CRACKS ME UP! Best wishes to a shut-in? What is up with that?!!
For more pink items, visit Beverly and the other participants listed at How Sweet the Sound. Maybe you've got some cool pink things to share with us next week.

Hi Elizabeth! I'm Elizabeth from Grand Occasions. I love vintage cards they just make you smile. They are from a gentler time and I wish the world was a little more like that today. I also "love" the garland. I'm a southern girl, but lived in New England (MA) for 4 COLD years. I made some lifetime friends and started a group we call "The Dixie Doodles". I'm Dixie of course and they are the Doodles. Like Dixieland and Yankee Doodle all in one. Anyway, I'm brand new to blogging and would love for you to stop by and visit sometime. I'll be posting pictures of "The Dixie Doodles" and our adventures in the future. Have a nice weekend.

Hi Elisabeth.
What a great looking blog you have. And I still love the name. Fantastic. And then you log into the blog and see those pretty pink vintage cards and loads of other stuff and wonders about the evil overlord behind it all ;o)
Have a great pink Saturday and a great pink weekend as well :-)

Oh what fun these vintage cards are Elizabeth. I remember a church bulletin once that had a announcement for having people join in to take food to Shut-ins...

I just adore the vintage get well cards. I wish I had kept many that I threw away years ago. I should remember, everything will be vintage someday, Happy PS

ROFL about the last one! I guess the meaning was different back then.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Elizabeth.

I love vintage cards, too. And, that carnation is amazing. It looks so real that you could sniff and smell it.

Those are beautifully created cards Elizabeth. And that last one, that one's a hoot! How about the exclamation point at the end!
