Hello and Happy Monday to you!

It has been a few busy days here in my overcrowded home space.  

Pink or Blush apparently is the color chosen by Pantone for 2018, welllllll I just happen to have loads of pink and blush vintage glass in my Vintage Family Estate Treasures shop!

Flowers such as these always take my breath away as well as amaze me, their colors are so vibrant and in such a variety of shades, are these not super beautiful?
Makers of glass over the centuries have managed in some miraculous mimicry of nature to produce glass in color such as the color PINK!  I chose a few pink items from the shop to support this 2018 chosen color..such as

Cafe Glass Plate from Anchor Hocking from the 1930's, so delicate looking yet in perfect condition and very solid.  Such a very pretty piece to use while entertaining from petit fours, delicate shortbread cookies, beautifully colored meringues..and so much more.

These Tintern hand painted under glaze from the 1950's ALFRED MEAKIN Sandwich Plates...

 Then there is this wonderful Frosted Blush Pink Dish with a gold metal stand that might be used in a guest room, or a powder room who knows where you might wish to use it to hold.  Isn't it absolutely so delicately beautiful? 
As well as a small frosted glass bowl with etched diamond point border surrounding a pretty stched flower in its center and surrounded by a swirled edge...again, a delicate looking bowl, but in every way strong and in pristine condition....It is definitely a Depression Era piece but try as I might I could not discover the maker of this beautiful little delicate bowl.  Would it not look beautiful with a plum jam in it set among your other breakfast or brunch condiments?

AND finally I chose this gorgeous 1980'd double sided condiment or Bon Bon dish from Mikasa.  It certainly while looking mauve falls into the category of being in the Pink colorway.  A beautiful dish to set upon a wooden side board or occasional table in the will hold condiments to set on table while entertaining or in your living room to hold delicious Bon Bon chocolates, or even in a Guest Powder room to hold those dainty colored guest soaps....

All in all, thanks to Pantone for choosing this years' color these and many more pretty pink items may be discovered inside my family estates treasure shop.

The weather is gently turning the Blah end of winter into an exciting warm sprint and I am off to take full advantage of the day..I wish you the same enjoyment from Ms. Spring's arrival....
