My Favorite Pinks and a Giveaway

Today's Pink Saturday request is to share a favorite holiday movie.  When you drop on over to How Sweet the Sound you'll see lots of wonderful holiday films.  My Christmas movie favs are at the bottom of this post.

Here are some of my favorite pinks. 
Haviland Limoges china, 
even if it is chipped!

The bridal bouquet from my friend's wedding.

Glinda the Good
& all things Oz.

Vintage clothing

Making displays
Shelley tea cups, buttons, millinery flowers, linens.

Books my grandma gave me.
I could have an Oz picture here too.
My family has two favorite Christmas films:  White Christmas and Holiday Inn.  We've watched them every year since the kids were little! Holiday Inn is actually the first movie to showcase the song "White Christmas."  It stars Bing Crosby & Fred Astaire and has an Irving Berlin song for every holiday.  "White Christmas" was so successful as a song, they decided to build a whole movie around it.  If you watch both films, you'll notice they used the same set! (taking off my reference librarian hat now)  My family likes Holiday Inn best, but I'm both a Rosemary Clooney fan & a romantic sap, so White Christmas always gets my vote!

                                   The song "Snow" in 4-part harmony.

 I also love a little movie (made for televison in 1997) called The Christmas List.  It stars Mimi Rogers and tells the tale of a department store perfume counter saleswoman who makes a list, drops it in Santa's bucket and then finds her wishes coming true in unexpected ways.  I'm sad it's not on ABC Family this year.

This holiday season I am also celebrating my 100th post.  Leave a comment by December 24th to be entered in the drawing.  click here for details of the giveaway.

Pretty Pinks! I love the snow song too, I sing it every year hoping against hope for some snow. I don't think I've actually seen Holiday Inn all the way through, just spinets. I need to watch it all. Happy Pink and have a great weekend!

I'm completely falling down on my holiday movie watching- I've never seen either of these, for goodness sake!

I am delighted to see so many Glinda fans! Did you know there is a whole book dedicated to her? It's titled Glinda of Oz, of course. And yes, I do have a copy.
Thank you all for your sweet comments,


How sweet your post is for Pink Saturday. I love it! I also love White Christmas.

Have a great week,
