Pink Saturday - Pink Lady

People! Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Putting out for Presentation.



This is a figurine that I call Pink Lady. Johnny bought her for me one Christmas. She's dated 1997. She's a Lladro, made in Spain, 9.7 inches in height and 4.9 inches wide, and I keep her in a place of honor--on the top shelf of my curio cabinet in my living room. She dances with my other Lladros.



My camera refuses to take a clear picture, so I must go to great lengths to compensate. Here are some better shots.








I'm certain that Johnny picked her out because she reminded him of me. I look EXACTLY like her! Yeah, that's it! And, I wear an outfit like this one too. Uh huh! And, I skip through the house with a bunch of flowers in my hand--just like the Pink Lady.


Notice the book giveaway on my sidebar.
Have a Happy Pink Saturday!

Isn't it amazing the grace that people can put into these ceramics??? She's a beauty, Sally! She looks like she might start dancing through your house at any moment. Sounds like a good idea. We should all dance through our houses...

Happy Pink Saturday!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Beverly said...

Sally, I am going to be smiling all day thinking of you skipping around in your flowing pink skirt. ;-)

Your Lladro is beautiful, and so special. You have a lovely collection.

What a coincidence! I look exactly like that, too! Oh, well, maybe not exactly like that. And I stopped skipping long ago. She's really a beauty - I can see why you'd put her in a place of honor.

g said...

How sweet of him to give you that! And whether you skip through the house in reality or just in your mind - isn't it fun?

Have a great Pink Saturday, Sal!

Mimi said...

Why, of course you look just like that lady in pink. What I would like to know is how do you take a bath or shower holding flowers in your hand?

Oh I love how she sashays! Too charming! Happy PInk Saturday!

I absolutely love that figurine. Perhaps this is the way Johnny sees your spirit. Love the other figurines in the pictures too. Of course I like the pink one best because pink is my favorite color.

KatCollects said...

I am getting so frustrated with my blogger, I went to your page and the post I saw was blue Monday from a couple weeks ago, then I hit refresh and there it was. It has been doing that lately. Happy pink Saturday.

Diane@A Picture is Worth.... said...

Your husband is so sweet and thoughtful. I'm sure she reminded him of you!

Elizabeth said...

The workmanship on this is amazing; she looks like she's wearing fabric. Lladro is so lovely.

Andi said...

Your Lladro figures are lovely and your Pink one is beautiful! Happy Pink Saturday Sally!

Angie said...

What a pretty lady and I'd like video next week of you skipping through your house in a pink dress :)

Charli and me said...

Good evening Sally, You have a beautiful figurine. I love how she looks as if she is dancing. I have noticed some lovely little flowers at the end of your posts. So Pretty. It makes me think of spring.

Picket said...

Hey Sally...love the way they captured the folds of her skirt like that..I could see you dancing thru the house twirling just like that..I could even picture you being a little sassy like our little Sofie and swishing your hips from side to side like Mae West! lol lol Girl I can't believe you can't hold a paint brush! Get you some old wooden crates and practice! lol I hope you are having a great weekend sweetie!

Bridget said...

Sally, I can see you dancing around your computer between blog posts just like that lovely figurine.

Envoy-ette said...

I LOVE LLADRO's. I have the same girl with the lamb! Your lady is GORGEOUS!

Blondie's Journal said...

SAlly...what a pretty post, she really looks like she is dancing the way you photograped her!! My mother-in-law collected Lladro's and that is how I came to know him. We gave her a few pieces for gifts, and now that she is gone I am reminded of how she loved them.

Thanks Sally!!

xoxo

Patty said...

Your comment about skipping through the house with flowers in your hand is cracking me up. :)

bj said...

Oh, I missed seeing this Pink dancing beauty yesterday. We had to take a day trip for a funeral...

Dixie's Whimsey said...

Sally... I love Lladro too... and your pink lady is beautiful... and it wouldn't surprize me at all if your Johnny sees you exactly that way. My Ricky has told me many times that when he looks at me he sees that girl he fell in love with. I have to admit, I see him in my minds eye much younger than his 58 years... isn't love grand!
hugs... Dixie
