Happy Pink Saturday ~ May 22

For Pink Saturday I am sharing a vintage print I picked up at an Estate Sale here in Charlottesville. It was quite the bargain. I got it on the last day of the sale for 75% off. I only paid $7.50 for this beauty. Any vintage print that shows the fashion of the day is a keeper. I have a bit of a soft spot for them & have a few. I'll be taking it with me on our move to decorate my craft room.
For more Pink, make sure to visit Beverly of How Sweet the Sound. She hosts Pink Saturday every week & last week there were over 160 participants. There's lots to see :)

I would imagine dressing one's self is so hard with all those layers and petticoats :-) But they do look lovely. reminds me of Little Women :-)

What a lovely print! And what a STEAL! I know why women of the south swooned back then with the heat and all layered up like that but aren't they beautiful.

Perfect Pink Saturday post!

I love this print. I'd say the women are from the 1860s, right?
I have similar images that I use in my crafts, including a set of notecards in my etsy shop. http://ebogie.etsy.com

If you'd like to see them.

What a l♥vely Pink Saturday blog entry. This is the one day of the week when I get to sit for a couple of hours and soak in my favorite color. Thanks for being a part of that day☺

I used to have the exact item. Sold it in my eBay shoppe.

Wishing you and yours a wonderful family weekend. I will be remembering my father who served in WWII, and praying for all of our military who are in harms' way.
