Pink Saturday - The Craft Show

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Stop by her place to see the many other pink items people are sharing.

Johnny and I went to the craft show this past weekend. What a big place! They even had booths set up outside under the portico! There were some handpainted, humorous, pink signs. Two examples were, "We have no children, but we do have one cat" and "I like to fish, but I must work."


Inside, they even had an information booth, decorated for the season, but not in pink!


There were the expected beautiful Autumn floral displays; however, no pink floral displays.


This pleasant couple posed for a picture with their gorgeous jewelry. She's got a touch of pink on her jacket.


Here's an example of their work, in every color but pink.


Some nice ceramic pieces were for sale at this table, but alas, no pink.


This friendly craftslady (did I just make up a new word?) showed off her pillow shams, made with Marlins/Yankee material to reflect the World Series when the Marlins beat the Yanks! She confessed that she was a bit timid about selling them as she didn't want to anger the embarrassed Yankee fans! My Marlins-fan husband had a good laugh at that. (We know those team colors are not the one we're looking for.)


This table, managed by Norine D'Auria, had a ton of ceramic pieces made, but this one piece was her focus. It was in honor of October's Pink Cancer Awareness Month. All of the profits from this piece will go to the Susan G. Kormen Breast Cancer Fund. You can go to her Pottery Peddler Etsy shop to see more about it. It's titled, Breast Cancer Challenge Entry.


With all of this temptation around me, I bought nothing! Then I saw pink and thought of Pink Saturday. Look at these pretty Christmas ornaments!


This display of hand crafted gifts by Carrie E. Appio had a delightful picture frame, along with many other pink things. You can click on her name to see her many beautiful gift ideas.


What did I buy? I collect apples, and so I bought this cute apple towel for my kitchen. See, the "blouse" attached to the towel? It is used to hang over the oven door handle. Apple red is a deep, dark pink, isn't it?


Reminders:
  1. I'm giving away another book. Look over at my sidebar.
  2. Remember Blue Monday is fast approaching. Come and play!
  3. Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Sally, Loved your trip through the craft show. You are right, not much pink in the fall. However, you did hit the jackpot with the ornaments. Very cute. I like your apple towel too. Have a great day.

Fun outing! I collect apple things too. Don't have a lot yet, but I do have apple switch and outlet plates, towels, teakettle for starters anyway. Those pink ornaments were adorable! Happy Pink Saturday. I better think of something for Blue Monday.

Ooh, if I had a granddaughter, I'd be all over those pink ornaments.

My mom's kitchen was decorated with apples.

I love craft shows, but unfortunately, they hardly have any around here any more.

You posted your comment today seconds before I got my Pink Saturday post up, I forgot to pre-schedule it yesterday, do come back I love when you visit! Now if you can remind me on Sunday, (I think turning 50 has turned my brain into soup!) about Blue Monday I'll do a post!

Claudie said...

Hi Sally thanks for visiting me today. I must tell you the mop is truly a very hot pink. I guess the picture made it look purple. When I brought it home my boys said "mom a PINK mop...come on now"..I love it.
Would love to participate in your book give away but I live in Canada...boo hoo.

you featured a very nice tour of the craft show: I like those pink ornaments!!!! HAppy Pink Saturday!

Neabear said...

I noticed your comment on Gabriela's blog about her music playing over the one on You Tube. I figured by accident that if you scroll to the playlist and hit "pause" it stops their music and you can hear the one on You Tube. Hope that helps.

It's hard to imagine going to a craft show and not finding something pink. Glad you did and happy to see someone supporting breast cancer awareness too. :)
