Linking today to Beverly's PINK Saturday.

Meet our new friends, the WUMMM Family, created by Sweetpea and set safely into a tee-ninecy doll teacup.   They're a friendly group, and so were the choice for a PINK illustration for this day.

I also have a not-so-silent longing for a set of Pink Melmac, like the ones which graced my Mammaw's kitchen table so long ago---even then, they felt like dining with Princesses.

Mammaw's house was pink from door-to-door and every possible wall, rug, appliance and decoration in between.  The glow was reinforced by the opening of the bathroom door to reveal a set of fixtures the color of fading roses.   Only my Mother’s admonishment, with the word “tacky” mentioned at least twice, prevented the mirrors from having a set of flamingo decals bobbing all across like a fleet of gaudy sailboats.   A hissed, "You've ALREADY got SWANS on the Wallpaper!" clinched the deal.

Anybody remember “Mamie Pink?”

And so, with such a PINK gene running down the family, we’ve had this charming WUMMM family hanging around the desk for quite a while.  They are Daddy Shovel, Mommy Spada and sister Anne, Lida the baby hiding behind Daddy, and  Toddler Trowel in the booster seat.

They’re a congenial group, quiet and orderly, and we’re glad to have them as part of the family.   Their rowdy green GRUBBB cousins, now---THEY’RE a different story, and not a ROSY one.

Oh, to have your very own family of pink wummms! What more could one's heart desire? I am loving those pink wummms.

Oh, we once had a bathroom with pink fixtures. I thought we were something else. And, I do love pink flamingos and pink melmac.

Ah, life is good. Happy Pink Saturday, Rachel.♥

I am a lover of pink, but the hubby is not. Doesn't it make you mad when the computer things don't work?

Have you tried going to the bottom line and back spacing?
