Pink Saturday~ Droopy Drawers & Vintage Cabinet

New Kitchen Cabinet
Hold on, this is a new post for pink Saturday! I have a new child's pink kitchen cabinet to go with my two appliances. Plus, there are cute little boxes of groceries to go with it. Thanks to my Arizona friend Carol for thinking of me. She gave this to me while my sister and I were out for her wedding. You know, Carol must think I'm Houdini. She loves to give me things to try to get through security at the airport! Of course, I had packed only one weekender piece of luggage for her wedding! I stuffed my underwear, bathing suit and God knows what else in that cabinet! It was stuff you would never see in a kitchen cabinet for sure! Would you believe that she gave me a pink handled knife right after 9-ll to bring back on the plane. CAROL!!what were you thinking! The three now fit beautifully in front of my real kitchen refrigerator, on a throw rug.

Droopy Drawers

These cute "Droopy Drawers" are an easily made craft from "away back yonder," as Granny would say. They are made with two dish cloths, ribbon or yarn and a little card attached that reads:
Now don't get excited,

and don't be misled.

These are not for you,

but your dishes instead.

Just pull out the ribbon

and rip out the stitches.

You now have two dish cloths,

but you sure lost your BRITCHES!
The two matching dish cloths were hand or machine basted in a contrasting thread to make it easy to tell where to rip the stitches. The ribbon or yarn was interlaced on the waist and bloomer bottom. They were folded lengthwise then stitched like normal pants would be.
Enlarge picture for better details. My friend, Glenda Rose gave me these cuties!

Colour is the certain first impact. No matter if vintage or new, but I know that Pink, being so special colour helps us to move away from usual:)
Have a Happy Pink Saturday within Pink thoughts.

All the best,

Tricia, Cute story about bringing your pink cabinet back! LOL! The whole set of kitchen appliances is just too cute!!! The little droopy drawers are cute too!

And the trumpet plant below is beautiful! I had a white one last year, but had to put it in a pot! It worked me to death keeping it watered! LOL! But they are so pretty! My uncle has them all over his yard, so I enjoy his this year! LOL! ~Rhonda :)
