Pink Saturday



Our gracious hostess, Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog, invites each of you to join her for Pink Saturday.


Several years ago, I enjoyed a sip of good pink or white wine. These pretty pink wine glasses were a gift. I did not use them very much. The wine started giving me terrible headaches. I decided it was better to give up the pleasure of wine, that have headaches. They just sit now and collect dust.

These are not the best pictures of the glasses.

I invite each of you to drop by and visit with Lynn, the "Flea Market Lady". She has not had this blog very long. She definitely fits in well with the rest of us. Most all bloggers love antique malls, garage sales, estate sales and flea markets. You might learn a new trick for your shopping sprees. Go to http://fleamarketlady.blogspot.com and say hello.

Beautiful glasses!
I have the same problem with wine...but then we were in France, no headaches! I guess it the the preservatives the US puts in their wine-I need to move to France....LOL
Thanks for sharing!

Ginny said...

These glasses are really so beautiful, a shame not to use them! I would use them as water glasses for company! And also maybe display them somewhere. I will check out this new blog!

Beautiful wine glasses, Lavoice. Hope someone in your family will want some of your special treasures like this someday...

Hugs,
Betsy

Stephanie @ La Dolce Vita said...

Your pretty pink glasses are lovely! A lot of people have that problem with wine - it seems that it is caused by wines that have sulfates in them. Try a sip of one that is sulfate free and you should be fine! Have a great weekend!

Sandi@ Rose Chintz Cottage said...

Your pink glasses are very pretty, LV! I don't drink wine either and I too have some lovely pink glasses. So I make use of mine by serving fancy desserts and parfaits in them. I bet berries layered with pudding and whipped cream would look fabulous in yours too. Happy Pink Saturday and enjoy your weekend.

Blessings,
Sandi

Crystal said...

The glasses are beautiful....even if they are never filled with wine!!!

GWENNY said...

Your wine glasses are gorgeous, I too get headaches from wine, so I drink ice water out of my wine glasses.. everyday can be special.

I've never seen pink glasses before. Where did you ever find them?

Hey, and don't worry about the photographs. They are fine. :)

Your pink glasses are so pretty. Photos are just fine, keep doing what you are doing. My dad is 91 and blogging. He writes, I post for him. We're both happy. His blog is on my side bar under Family and Friends. I am your 499th follower and looking forward to exploring your blog as well as the blogs of people you write about. Happy find.

Your pink wine glasses are so pretty! I find that red wine sometimes gives me headaches and is supposed to be a no-no for headache sufferers. It's the preservatives in red wine. I will be sure to visit Lynn!

Noticed your previous post, and it's another scorcher today isn't it? 104!

Ann said...

Those are stunning wine glasses!!!! Maybe you could use them for other drinks--such as ice tea. I'd use them if it were me!!!!
Happy PS.

Francie...The Scented Cottage Studio said...

Dorothy said...

Lovely Pink wine glasses! Sorry about the headaches!

Emily said...

jeanne said...

Hello LV, I am taking a few minutes to visit a few friends. My grands are playing games and their music.

Thank you so much for the sweetest comments while I have been unable to spend time on my computer. You are a dear blogging friend. Your comments make me smile LV.

I love your pink wine glasses. They are different and so pretty. I love to have a bit of wine once in a while. I am thankful I do not get a headache from wine. I do know several people that have that same problem.

Happy Pink Saturday.
Love, Jeanne

Was just looking at some glasses like this today at an antique store. They are pretty. Thanks for stopping by my blog! Hot here too---and so humid. ugh,

Marilou of Lulu's Lovlies and Heartful Creations said...

Hi LV, Your glasses are very pretty, I know what you mean and I have so many pretties I need to take pic's of and put them in my Etsy Shoppe as my kids won't want all my stuff, they have their own! Great glasses and post! I'll check out your friend! Hugs and Happy weekend! Marilou

Jillian's Bella Rosa Antiques said...

Really like those glasses! They might go well with my LuRay dinnerware!

I can also use a new fleamarket tip or two.... thank you for sharing this blogger.

Holly said...

I love those pink goblets! I have been looking for some and will continue my hunt until I am successful! You could put sparkling cider in them and avoid the headache and still use them. I could drink an entire bottle on my own. =0)
HPS!

Flea Market Lynn said...

Meme, thank you so much for mentioning my new blog on your posting. I was so excited when someone left me a message about seeing my link on your blog. Really appreciate the great exposure! Thx again!! I'll put your button on my sidebar. Lynn

Marydon said...

LV, your glasses are just gorgeous. You could always use them as upside down cloche type pieces on your mantle or tables tucking pretties inside for display. Or, nestle gloves or a doily inside with seasonal touches added. I see such decorating potential for these beauties.

Have a lovely PS weekend.

Very pretty glasses! I'm not a wine drinker either but I use mine. Even water taste better in a pretty glass.

Jacqueline~Cabin and Cottage said...

Hi LV! These are pretty pink glasses for Pink Saturday. They would make very nice party glasses!

Light and Voices said...

I had three glasses of wine tonight; this is unusual for me but it was free with dinner. I love your wine glasses. Perhaps you could pour ice tea, lemonade, or pop that you like to drink in them. How glorious that will make you feel.

mercedes scott said...

Meme, those glasses are divine! Since you can't use them for wine, how about for ice cream with berries? or a spritzer? or even lemonade? they will certainly make any drink special! :)

Happy Pink Saturday LV Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share today. I love seeing your beautiful wine glasses. (I have a pink set as well, I don't drink wine, so I enjoy sipping tea now and again from mine.) I love the pretty colored stems on yours. Makes the pop.

Your crocheted doily is just beautiful. I love using them as well. They just make one HAPPY.

Have a gorgeous weekend sweetie. Many hugs and much love from Phoenix, Sherry

Susie Jefferson said...

Hi LV - I so sympathise re the wine. I love a glass, especially with a meal - but it now gives me a slight headache and brings on my hot flashes. Definitely not worth it for one single glass! But I do miss it, if only for the stem ware, lol

Happy Pink Saturday - and scream if you need any help with the screensaver.

Sharon said...

Great PINK glasses! Happy PINK Saturday!!

Dogmom Diva said...

Hi LV, happy P.S.! What beautiful wine glasses, alas, I also suffer from wine headaches..and I love a nice glass of wine now and then so I just sip and hope!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Pat said...

The wine glasses are pretty especially sitting atop the crochet doily.

Personalized Sketches and Sentiments said...

Love your pretty pink glasses (I have finally realized and admit that I LOVE glassware (drinking glasses)...whenever we are out shopping, I find that for some unknown reason, I am drawn to unique, fun or unusual glasses...from vintage to those you can find currently produced. Oh and I love your crochet piece...like I love all the crocheted pieces you have shown previously.

Blessings & Aloha!
We have been out of town, so am just catching up with my thank you visits (I didnt even get my "one post a week" post up this week)! Thank you so, so much for stopping by my place last week! And I am happy that your art arrived safely. Hugs to you!

Sherry@Back2Vintage said...

Your pink wine glasses are gorgeous! Happy Pink Saturday!

Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

Love your pink glasses. But I say go ahead and use them for what ever you drink! water, tea, milk, lemonaide? enjoy them!

Happy pink saturday!!

Robin said...

your glasses are lovely....
You don't have to drink wine from them. You can drink water, milk, lemonade, ice tea, etc. Dust those beauties off and enjoy them again. :-)
Have a pinkishly beautiful weekend.

CailinMarie said...

good morning!
I love the glasses - maybe a mimosa would be nice?
I'm off to visit Lynn next!
Happy Pink Saturday to you!

Pretty pink glasses, LV
Happy Pink Sat.

Romina said...

Love your pink glasses, especially the second photo.

Talking about wine, I just had like 3 glass of moscato together with my friends it's not often that we drink and it gives me headache.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

I don't drink, but I don't let that stop me from using pretty glasses. If you like them, I'd use them anyway. Somehow food and drinks always seem to taste better in "good" dishes and glasses.

Gracie Jewellery said...

Love your glasses! If they were mine I'd be using them at dinner time. They would certainly dress up my table. Have a great weekend. Happy Pink Saturday!

KAT said...

Tricia said...

Beautiful pink wine glasses! I, too, get headaches when I drink wine (?) so don't drink it much anymore. But I love beautiful glasses and china. Happy Pink Sat. and thanks for stopping by my blog. I'll try to stop by The Flea Market Lady soon.
Blessings for a Happy Pink Sat.

Hey LV!
As often is the first to comment on my blog. Hope all is well with you. In Sweden, where we have the summer house, it has been a Mediterranean climate for several weeks. North Pole in winter, and the Mediterranean in the summer :-)
I've overworked the knee o leg. A sprain. Takes time to heal when you can not be in silence
Wine glasses are adorable. Use them to water if you can not tolerate wine. you have to gild the days;-)
Now I will prepare a barbecue on the mountain, where the wind blows some good. The sun does not go down there about. 23:00
hugs

George said...

The glasses are beautiful. We don't drink wine as often as we used to, either. Do you think it has something to do with age?

Sara Chapman in Seattle, USA said...

I always wonder if the headaches many people get from wine are caused from the wine itself or the myriad additives used to make wine. You might try an organic wine someday and see if that is better. A pity to live without wine, especially with such pretty glasses!

Dixie said...

My middle daughter uses her wine glasses to drink juice from each morning... she has the same problem as you with the wine... but has beautiful glasses...just like you... and she likes to use them...

don't let them sit... drink your favorite juice or milk or whatever you enjoy everyday... live, laugh, love! Dixie
