SuperSuSluething at The CIA for PinkSaturday!!!

It's been a 'CheapPink Week'!  Not that this GRIT thinks Pink things are Cheap! 

Ah Contrary...just look at this PinkThing that came outta what ya might call cheap dirt, but was definately not 'DirtCheap'

HONG KONG (Reuters Life!) - A rare, 5-carat pink diamond was auctioned off for a record $10.8 million in Hong Kong, putting some shine back into the world's rare and large stones market which was badly hit by the financial crisis.

"Badly hit by the financial crisis"...Ha!...they should be shopping in Texas markets with this GRIT's coin purse for PennyPinchinPinks!

Yep, I definately hit PinkPayDirt this week at the Biggest Thrift Store in Texas.  Right here in SanAngelo.  It's called Christians In Action or as Mr.CITexas calls it The CIA.  Now, just cause this is CheapPink Stuff, don't think I didn't have to do some SuperSuSleuthing and Inspector Gadgeting for these Pink Treasures.

Yep, you can call me SuLock Holmes after the digging I did  for the Rosey Kitchen Poem Plate, The Pink Rose Saucer and the Hanky.  However, I'm Inspector Clueless about this Pink TriPod Warmer Thingy.  It is marked MiraMar with a copyright mark and 1955 on the bottom.  So all Ya'll RetroIsta's....What the HeckIsIt?

PS...Don't Ya'll just Love Pink Saturday Treasures?
Look what Ann at Tin and Sparkle found at an Estate Sale. Stop by and see her Treasures and tell her CollectInTexas Gal sent you.

And be sure to say Howdy to Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!  She's got TheList.....so have FUN visiting on this Pink Saturday, March, 6, 2010.


  1. Hi there! The little pink thingy is a butter melter/warmer - like if you wanted to pour warm butter over corn on the cob or dip a bite of lobster, etc. in the melted butter. So, me thinks maybe you bought it just because it was Pink??!! I understand.

    I'm really partial to the hanky and pink rose plate - pretty...

    Like your other pinkies, specially the butter warmer.

    Have a great day.

  3. I love what you bought at the CIA. Of course, the ring is pretty special....

    Happy Pink Saturday!


  4. YES! Pink reigns :-)

  5. HI Sue! I like that pink syrup warmer pot! That's what I think it's for. Time for pancakes! Happy Pink Saturday, friend!

  6. Oh, my. Are you in the San Angelo with all the outlets? I was shopping there last summer when we stayed in Austin for a couple of weeks. If so, and had I known there was a THRIFT store, that would have been on my LIST!!! Oh, no, did I miss it?

    Good job sleuthing. Happy Pink Saturday!

  7. You are a good SuLock Holmes!! I love the pink rose plate! Nope, don't have a clue what the pink warmer thingy is... could it be to melt butter?

  8. I'm lovin' that pretty hankie! HPS!!!

  9. All of your pinks today are outstanding, sugar, and yessssss, that new pink apron is adorable. Isn't it fun to make them? I love doing it and just hang them around the kitchen for "eye candy" until they sell.

  10. Charming!

    Happy PS!

  12. Hankies! Ah...those were the days! We use to buy my daddy white hankies for the holidays as children. I also had some pretty ones with hand crocheted trim from years gone by and they did too! :(

  16. Oh I love all your pinks but my favorite is the little butter warmer~ So nice!!

  17. Happy Pink Saturday SueLock Holmes...
    I adore this post as always. So darn stickin cute you are. Now I love that PINK DIAMOND, but the plate has my heart. I have seen the little kitchen one hanging in great aunts home many, many years ago. I loved it then, still do seeing yours. How precious Sue, just precious.

    The little butter warmer is a treasure. I would think you would use that many times over. I have never had one, but with all sorts of foods it would be delicious for sure.

    Have a beautiful Sunday sweetie. Country hugs and much love...Sherry

  18. Pretty pinks and I think that's a butter warmer too! Or--you could heat some syrup for pancakes or waffles? Either way, it's really unique and cute! Happy pink week!!

  19. Thanks for giving me a shout out on your blog. I love all of your pinks too. I was looking at the swap list and I think that you are partnered with a different Ann. I'm partnered with Gwendolyn at A Charming Home. Please let me know ASAP if I'm wrong. Have a happy Sunday.
