Pink Saturday - Christmas Palace Shopping

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Stop by her Pink place to see the many other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are sharing.
When I started this meme, I thought that I might last for a month, but now I'm finding Pink everywhere I look!
For instance, Johnny and I went to a special store to shop this week. It's called Christmas Palace. Perhaps you have one in your area. They are jammed packed with everything Christmas. What's that in the back corner? Do you see some Pink?



Pink dolls! All kinds of dolls dressed in white and pale pink. What a beautiful display!



Here's more pink. This time it's ornaments of many shapes and sizes.



Look at the tree loaded in pink and gold. I took a close-up so you could study the decorations.



Happy Pink Saturday!

If you're interested in a book giveaway, check out the one from this past Tuesday. To enter, please leave that email address in code.

I, too didn't think I'd last long w/ PS. I'm finding pink everywhere I go, as well as blue. Having these memes really makes me more aware of things around me!

What pretty pink Christmasness you've found. I'm a traditional type and do lots of red for Christmas.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Sally.

We used to shop at The Christmas Place on NE 13 Street in Fort Lauderdale. We went every year to see what we wanted, and then we would be in line the morning after Christmas to get the things we wanted at the markdown. I have many, many decorations we purchased there.

My wife absolutely loves pink. I'm sure she will be by to check out your post before the day is over. I may be the only man checking in here today. Although I read your daily posts I really didn't come today because of the pink. I wanted to thank you for dropping by yesterday and to tell you that my birthday present is not a picture, although I did hang it. It is a beautiful levitating ball that I hung on the patio. It was designed and made by a professional glassblower, Jeff Price. It's his interpretation of the famous levitating ball illusion used by the Great Houdini. I will be posting a picture of it on my blog. Have a great Pink Saturday!

I know what you mean, if you just look for it, there's pink everywhere. I love stores like the one you featured. We have a lot of pink on our Christmas tree the last few years. We'll be putting it back up in a few days. The Thanksgiving cartoon is so cute.

Jeanne said...

Sally, You are definitely dreaming of a pink Christmas. The Palace is an awesome store. I enlarged all of your photos and wow, Love them all.
Pink is 'in' this year in a big way.
I still will have my fruit Christmas tree. I love the way it looks. I will be having blown glass ornaments give-a-way starting on the 21st. Karen's Christmas party.

Hugs...Jeanne

It seems that pink and teal are trying to be the new colors for Christmas this year. I have spotting pink trees in a lot of sale ads and Target has a lot of Pink and Teal ornaments. I am a traditional and down to earth girl. I prefer natural decorations. I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with this season, How about you? ~ Robyn
