Childhood Christmas Memory and Pink Saturday

Who says Christmas has to be JUST red and green? Surely not me! I think pink has a place too! Just take a look at my vintage Christmas ornaments. I love these so much! They sit on a counter in my kitchen so I can see them all the time! Gotta love those pink sparkling glitter balls!


A few more up close. Of course the pink one is my favorite!




*A Christmas Memory*
My sister and I shared a room as children. I remember us talking and giggling in the dark at night. However, there were never more talk and giggles than on Christmas Eve each year. Many years a new doll was on my Christmas list. After we were silent, I would imagine what my new doll would look like, what I would name her, what we would do together. I always loved this night!! Here is a picture of my sister and me on Christmas morning, December 1973. You can see me proudly holding my new dolly.


Ok, I'm sneaking in one more *giggles*, our parents let my sister and me decorate the tree, Here is a angel ornament that we always put on the tree. She now proudly hangs on my "Bethlehem Tree" each year. She always takes me back to Christmastime in my childhood.

Want more pink or more Christmas memories? Head on over to Beverly's to check out more!

Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Christmas Memories!

What cute little girls with their dolls! You were both precious. And I love the ornaments you've showed us as well as the little angel (I have a similar one) that came from your parents' tree. Thanks so much for sharing with us.

Happy Pink Saturday!

With a sister to whisper to on Christmas Eve, it's a wonder you got any sleep whatsoever! Oh, goodness, what would have happened if you had seen Santa!

Love the ornaments - I quite agree about colours - and who was it said you can only have one set of lights?

Happy Pink Saturday!

What a sweet Christmas Memory of you and your sister waiting for Christmas morn! My sister Connie and I did the same thing and now we're much older but still celebrate Christmas together! Also I wanted to tell you that you've given me inspiration for what to do with my "new" vintage ornaments that I just found at an antique mall! Yours look so pretty! Have a super Pink Saturday evening! Hugs, Coralie

Hi Rebecca and you made me smile because I think my two girls now aged 45 and 47 did the very same things and you reminded me of those happy times. Happy Pink Saturday, Mollye

Oh my goodness, I can't believe you posted that picture! You looked so cute, but I looked just plain weird with that hair do! I remember each toy in that picture. My Velvet Doll had hair that would "grow" or could be "shortened" with a knob in her back. That was a great idea for keeping little girls from cutting their doll's hair! (Remember what we did to Gootie Bird? LOL!!!) Christmas was a special time, so full of excitement. I remember one year I was SO disappointed when I didn't get my pink fuzzy slippers (yes, I've had a life-long obsession with anything pink and girly) but I didn't want to say anything about them. Turns out Mom, um, Santa forgot to put them under the tree. Months later, I was playing in the attic and found them and asked Mom if I could have them...LOL! And I want a copy of that picture! Love ya, Sis!
