Pink Saturday ~ Roses n LuRay, the Pretty Pink Dishes

This is my first "Pink Saturday" post! Beverly of How Sweet the Sound hosts this fun tribute to Pink every Saturday.

So, without further ado, below are some of my favorite pink things:


Pink roses. For any occasion, of course!



Antique porcelain items with pink roses on them. These are some of the pieces that were in our antique booth.


I collect LuRay Pastels vintage dinnerware. Probably because of the one color they produced in pink, but I love all of them except the gray, which are actually rare. The LuRay "sign" is not a vintage piece but I just had to have it! And, it is pink!

An old "LuRay" dinnerware advertising card. Feel free to right click and keep it for yourself! (And click here if you'd like to see the LuRay I am selling in my online store.)

A lovely usage of LuRay dinnerware. Loved what the person did with the LuRay dishes and wanted to show you.


Hope you enjoyed my first Pink Saturday post. Not sure if I'll be able to post every Saturday, but since I love pink, I've always wanted to particpate... now if I can figure out how to get my name on the list... I'll really be "tickled pink."

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Jillian. The deadline is to let me know each week you are going to post by no later than 5 p.m EST on Friday. You can let me know any time during that week. I will send you an e-mail with some information.

Your booth certainly has great items. Thanks for sharing.

Happy Pink Saturday! And welcome! I love your post. I have a Lu Ray platter that is pink and am thinking of collecting the pink pattern b/c it goes well with my everyday stoneware.

Lovely post!

It's my first PINK SATURDAY also. Love your pink roses and dishes! I noticed in your profile you were looking for "The Boxcar Children" books. I read those when I was in grade school and LOVED them! You are the first I have heard of that knew about those books.

jeanne said...

Jillian, Your pink is lovely. I used to sell antiques and I can appreciate your love of vintage with lovely pink flowers. The Lu-ray is a great collectible. Very modern for the time and still attractive. The table setting is very nice.

Sorry my visit is so late but we were out of town for two days. I am finally catching up today. Nice pink post and welcome to Pink Sat.

Hugs...Jeanne

Ellen said...

Welocme to your first pink post...I enjoyed seeing all your lovely pink treasures. I need to dig in my cedar chest and bring my hat pin holder and pins out again. I have so much stuff that I need to rotate it. :)Ellen
