I haven't been able to participate in Pink Saturday the last couple of weeks and didn't want to miss again. So, I wrote and told Beverly to count me in for this week. YIKES! Time to PANIC! I have nothing ready.

I've always liked vintage pink kitchens, so I did a google search. Lo and behold, I found this really neat site. It's for people interested in doing retro decorating. Isn't that neat?

And here are some pink kitchens...

And look at the neat retro wallpaper:

Back in the 1960's I worked with a lady that had a pink kitchen and a pink bathroom. She had bought the house new and her husband told her it was a princess house.

Now I'd like to find my own princess house. Something built in the 1950's-1960's. Wouldn't it be fun? I'd have to junk everything I have now and start over, but now I know where I can go for help. If you're interested in doing a little retro decorating's the link:

For information on Pink Saturday head over to Beverly's blog. Just click on the Pink Saturday icon on my sidebar for a list of participants and information on how you can join in the fun. Thanks Beverly!


  1. Oh, Betty, I love that. How you are managing to find all this pink stuff is amazing. I just love the retro kitchen stuff. I wish I had the original kitchen appliances in my 1960 house, although they were probably blue since that's what the countertops are. See you, Karen

  2. Pink Saturday is one of those times that I indulge myself and my ♥ of the color pink. Today your blog helped to fill my pink-a-licious desire. Thanks so much!

    When you get that kitchen...let me know, I'll be over for a cup of coffee :)

  3. I'd LOVE a 1950's style home. I have the house picked out too. It's in my old neighbourhood where I grew up. My mom asked why I didn't want to buy their house when they sold it, but that would be too weird, plus it was built in 1963. Happy pink day!

  4. Thanks for sharing. Happy Pink Saturday. Check out my book giveaways!

    Come for Blue Monday.

  5. Love those pics - and the clothes in them! When I was a little girl I wanted pink hair. My Dad used to go mad as I'd try to achieve it with lipstick!

  6. What fun. Thank you for this very nostalgic and retro-pink post. Thank you, too, for visiting The Tea Room, and Happy Pink Saturday! ~Arleen

  7. Oh can I have the pink princess house next door to yours! I just love the retro look. I'm all about the 50's! Maybe because I just missed them!

    Welcome back!
    Hugs, Lisa

  8. That is all so back in fashion now. I think there are probably many out there that would love that kitchen for themselves. Happy Pink Saturday and thankyou for the post, Char

  9. I think my husband would not survive life in a pink house!! I wouldn't even attempt it. But the photos you chose are really fun. Thanks for sharing. Happy pink Saturday!

  10. It's lovely to meet you, Betty. I love all the pink kitchens I think we ladies should all have princess houses :) Happy pink Saturday!
    Thanks also for the link :)

  11. oooh, I would love a pretty pink kitchen like that wouldn't you? YUMMY!

  12. I don't know about pink appliances, just because I tend to keep appliances for 20 years and would be afraid I'd get tired of the pink. I would definitely go for that first wallpaper though. LOVE that! Happy Pink!

  13. Well, you certainly pulled Pink Saturday together.....darling things. I love the appliances. My cousin actually had pink in the 70's. I was soooo jealous. I just saw someone's pink stove on a blog, but since I'm over 50, I can't remember who. Wish it was mine.


    PS.......thanks so much for your sweet comments and visit...

  14. gotta love those pink kitchens! What cool pictures. And I love the wallpaper.


  15. I love the idea of a princess house! These photos are amazing. I just redid my kitchen to fit my 1952 house more accurately. I never thought of pink cabinets, but I should have! :-)
    Happy Pink Saturday (on Sunday)

  16. Imagine how wonderful it was to design your own pink kitchen! Happy Pink Saturday!

  17. That is totally my taste in decor! I'm always scouting websites for ideas!
