Three Dogs and a Pink Dish

Each week I enjoy looking at all the pinkness on Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound.     I have never linked to the pink party though because there is not a lot of  pink in my house I share with my hubby and two sons.   As you can imagine, pink is not their favorite color.

However, while trying to clean out some of the junky clutter around here,  I was pleasantly surprised to find this cute pink glass container with little scottie doggies on the lid.   It is a miracle it is still in one piece because it was just stuffed in the back of a cabinet.    Yikes, I never would have forgiven myself if it had broken.


It belonged to my grandmother and I have no idea what it is or how old it is.    She passed away in 1970 so that makes it at least 40 years old.    I found a piece of paper inside it dated 1951, so it may even be 60 years old.   This has a lot of sentimental value to me  because it is the only thing I have that was hers.     I clearly remember it always sitting on  the top of her dresser in her bedroom.

The pink is painted on the inside of the dish and as you can see, it has worn off in several places.     There is an intricate raised pattern on the glass.    If you know what this cute little piece is or how old you think it might be, I would love for you to comment and tell me.

I have had fun writing about my mam-maw’s pink doggie dish…it brought back some special memories.      I will have to keep looking around the house to see if I can find something else pink to share with you next week.    Thanks for visiting!

Best wishes and blessings to you,

Gull Talk


I am linking to the Outdoor Wednesday party at A Southern Day Dreamer.   Nothing is blooming in my yard yet so I decided  to share with you some pictures my hubby took this past week while working in south Louisiana.

It’s a baby pelican!     I have never seen a baby before.

A beak only a mother could love.

Pelicans have always reminded me of prehistoric creatures.    They are so regal as they soar through the air seeking their prey in the water below.

I love this photo of the seagulls on the pilings and the water sparkling like diamonds in the sun.

He said the sea gulls were real social…they were sitting in a line squawking with each other.    Gull talk.

Looking at these pictures makes me want to head to the beach.   How about you….ready to go pelican and gull watching?
