Pink Lady

As I typed the title of this post I am thinking a Pink Lady may be a special cocktail.   Not sure....but if it's not it should be. Love the name! But my Pink Lady is totally different. Had a blast on my antiquing/junking/beach trip last week. We ate too much and laughed twice as much....got lost, and spent tons of time on the road hunting for treasures. For Pink Saturday I just had to show you this fabulous old pink shabby building with blue steps. I have to tell you that this is the kind of place my car just automatically turns into. The other ladies in my car were just amazed at such a thing. I drooled over the pink ladies on the front porch. Try as I might I just could not talk the guy into selling me one of these fabulous pieces. Today's post will be short and sweet. I have been super busy, since coming home, with a new venture happening for me. I will tell you all about it as a little more time passes but I am so excited. But because of it, my post may not be as often as I would like so don't give up on me. And I want to thank Beverly, our Pink Saturday hostess and the owner of that wonderful blog How Sweet the Sound, for helping me out last week. Now have a wonderful day and be sweet. xoxo



 Oh wait....before I go I wanted to show you this fabulous beach home.  It was a couple of blocks from where we were staying.  I won't tell you who it belongs to, but you all know her.  Oh okay.....you talked me into giving you a hint.  She turns letters on a long running game show.  :)  Happy Pink Saturday.

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Lynn. I am excited about your coming news.

How appropriate that VW would have a home there. And, of course you would never tell us.

I would have had to turn into this store, too. Do tell where it is.

What an amazing pink house! I love everything about it, including the blue stairs! Sounds like very exciting things are happening for you! Congratulations! xo Samantha

Blondie's Journal said...

Very cute house, Lynn! I'd want one of those little ladies, too!! ;-D

Oh...and the other little lady you referred to doesn't turn letters anymore, she just taps them!

XO,
Jane

Love that shabby building! Who would've thought that turning letters could buy a house like that? Beautiful.

Lynn said...

Hi from another "Lynn". I am in Florida away from all the snow. That building is amazing. Will have to google that beautiful home of V's and see where the other building is. Blessings.

LV said...

That is a store I definitely would enjoy seeing. Thanks for let us have a peak at VW's mansion. I watch her each day on the show. One thing for sure you were staying in a very nice area.

You know-you could probably re-create those ladies...they look like they are on plywood or something....and you have a picture. You could graph it out and then apply the graph principle to the plywood....just a thought.

I can't wait to hear what your new venture is...but I am guessing it is something to do with antiques or re-sale..that's my best guess.

Glad you have fun...it is always great when you come home and have laughed more than you have eaten...that's the perfect indicator of a wonderful trip! Hugs-Diana

Jil~Say It With Roses said...

That is a unique building and someone with a good imagination painted it...the blue steps just "make it."

Congratulations on your new venture and I will be eagerly waiting to know what it is....somthing creative, I bet!

Happy Pink Saturday Lynn Sweetie...
I just knew that you would be popping up with something spectacular from this drive down the coast. Oh my what a beautiful store. I too, think they should have parted with at least one of those gals for your home at the Vintage Nest. She would have been so happy there. Maybe you can get DH to help you make one of your own. You are SO talented sweetie, jump on this one like you do that old tractor of yours. I can see you now.

Vanna? Did you say Vanna? Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous home. I love it, and this is probably as close as I would ever get to it too. It is so elegant and definitely her.

Can't wait to see what else you have to share from this glorious trip, as I know there are many.

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Debbi said...

hmmmmm, Lynn, for some reason I can picture you rolling into that pink place in your black mercedes with the hair on the back of you neck standing up in "pink excitement" LOL!!
So--that is Vanna White's house???

Marydon said...

She sure does have a beautiful home, as beautiful as is she.

And, your new veenture is ...?

Have a beautiful PS weekend ~
TTFN ~
Hugs, Marydon

Anne Fannie said...

Happy Pink Saturday

Pam said...

Love pink house and the pink ladies are wonderful. Too bad you couldn't talk the owner into selling you one.

Happy Pink Saturday.

P.S. Did you see Vanna?

Ann said...

What a pink building. I see what drew you to it! The pink ladies are really neat too. Sounds like you have big things in store for you, am anxious to hear.

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Cripes, I obviously had the wrong job all those years and to think I could have turned letters and lived in a mansion! Oh Lynn, can't wait to hear what your adventure is!!

Happy Pink Saturday to you! What a find - I love anything vintage and this old house is just beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing!

dana said...

LOVE the Pink Lady (building and drink!).....DON'T keep us in suspense too long about your new venture!!

And to think, I spent years going to college....and all I would have had to have done was get a gig as a letter turner on a game show to have all of the money I ever needed! Just one little hitch....I'm not skinny or cute like "V" is!!!

Have a great Pink Saturday!

L, Dana

As for the secret lady, we all know who she is and just think, looking pretty and turning letters can afford you a beach house like that! Wow!

Designs on 47th Street said...

Okay Lynn ~~~ you aren't being very nice holding out on us! Curiousity you know! Can't wait to hear what you have up your sleeve. No doubt it will be fabulous.

I just know you had the BEST time last week...sounds like such fun.

Wouldn't you like to make that kind of money tapping letters? ;)

Nice to have you back.
Donna

Margaret Cloud said...

Yes Lynn, there is a cocktail called Pink Lady, it originated during prohibition. A trip would not seem right without getting lost. Too bad about the pink Lady, they are so cute, what a wonderful old building. Now that is some beach home, one a person can only dream of. Don't worry we will be checking back to see what you are up to. Have a nice week.

Grace said...

Lynn how beautiful! How did I not see your Pink Saturday post! Happy Pink Saturday belated and I hope you had a wonderful Valentine's Day! Grace xoox
