PINK SATURDAY


Welcome once again to Pink Saturday sponsored by Beverly over at How Sweet The Sound.  For a list of this week's participants  head over to Beverly's blog.

I have three grown sons and no daughters, so I really never had a whole lot of pink in my life.  I like pink, but blue was always my favorite color.  Good thing since I was surrounded by males.  I have no grandchildren, so I have no granddaughters, but I have my dolls and they like pink.

This is my Vogue Ginny Doll's bedroom.  The furniture is pink and from the 1950's.  That's a Vogue vintage reproduction Ginny in bed, a vintage Vogue Jill, and a Vogue modern day Candy Striper Ginny that a doll friend, Diane, gave me when my son was recuperating from a stem cell transplant.  Ginny was a little under the weather when this picture was taken. The dollhouse on the right was done in plastic canvas by Londa, another doll friend. (Click on pictures to enlarge and use your back arrow to return.)
 Here's another vintage repro AA Ginny in a pink dress that Cathy on the Yahoo Ginny Doll list made for her.  I wish I could crochet.  It's not that I haven't tried.  My talents must lie somewhere else.
Here are the "kids" having breakfast.  The repro Ginny on the floor is wearing pink pajamas made by Vogue and the vintage Ginny on the chair is wearing vintage pink and white checked pajamas made by Vogue.  Those pajamas also came in blue and white checks and red and white checks.  The vintage Ginny with her back to you is wearing the blue and white checked ones.  The other Ginny on the right is partially hidden, but she's wearing the red and white checked pajamas.
You can see her better in this picture.  I like the matching pajamas and the blue and white pair are from my childhood.  The others I got on eBay.
I don't get much time anymore  to play with my dolls and set them up in scenes, but in the past year I did buy my first two Muffie dolls.  They were also made in the 1950's to compete with the Vogue Ginny.  This poor Muffie's hair was a mess, but I washed and rolled it and she looks much better now.  Her outfit was made by a Ginny friend, Susan.  Her apron has pink, her hair bow is pink, and her socks are pink.  You don't get much pinker than that!  Behind her is a vintage Ginny and a vintage Cosmopolitan Ginger Doll.
Now head over to Beverly's blog so you can visit some more pink posts!  And thank you My Pink Pretties for your kind comments.  (She likes dolls too.)

  3. This is an Awesome collection. I'm also a mother with only a son, not having a daughter I think we do miss out on dolls, so I collect dolls as well! I really like the pink crochet dress, its very pretty. I really enjoy making crochet dresses for dolls, I guess its a kind of therapy. And we're allowed to! Because we missed out on daughters! Happy Pink Saturday <3
