A New Beginning and A Obsession

Now, Pink Depressionware is not so new to me, as you may recall an earlier post featuring my great grandmother's pieces I acquired a few years ago.


I'd decided that these would be the inspiration for my kitchen decor. They are so delicate. So I've been looking around for other pieces ... glass knobs, candleholds, goblets. Soft touches of pink everywhere.

I've learned from senior spouses, that in military life deployments and moves are inevitable, but the best way to make it feel "normal" amidst so much change is to make sure there are common "comforts" or "constants" that remain. So as we make plans to start a family, these things have become more important to me. Until now, my constants have been work and school, but both of those are coming to an end and I am excited to now focus on creating a beautiful home.

What are some of the "comforts" in your life? You don't have to live the life of a nomad to have a "happy place" or items that sooth you.

Until our next visit ...

Happy Pink Saturday! Welcome aboard. My grandmother had the green depression glass and I was the lucky recipient of a cake plate. It is soooo pretty. My uncle was a Major in the army and he and my Aunt traveled all over the world...keepsakes become an important remindar of where are roots are.

Hi Michelle and welcome to Pink Saturday!

I had to giggle when I saw your glass chickens! My mother has a large collection and I've bought her many throughout the years. They are such darling little things aren't they?

Lovely pink depression glass. I take comfort in using my good china cups every day. I always drink my tea in a china teacup. It just seems to taste better in
a pretty little cup.

Happy 1st Pink Saturday and good luck with your move.

I can relate to how the constants can make a difference when you live the military life. I grew up in a military home, we moved nearly every fours years but my mom always made every home we had feel just like the one we left. It was very comforting. I just love the glass hens on a nest, they are beautiful. I have one like the one on the left with the beading only it's clear glass. Best of luck on your move.

Welcome To Pink Saturday.

Welcome to Pink Saturdays, and congratulations on your first post (it's only my 3rd week, and I am really enjoying it... it's so different)

I love those glass chickens - will they be living on a sunny windowsill? I can just imagine the light shining through...

Happy Pink Day!

Beautiful post, I am the wife of an A.F career man. He just retired after serving his country for 30 years. I am all about the moves, so many places to see and so little time. Enjoy it all to the fullest, and Happy Pink Saturday, so glad you found us. Char
