Pink Saturday

I am glad it is Pink Saturday again. There has been nothing pink around here lately. Just dark, cold days. Join me for a pink, warm visit with Beverly at

Did you know "Betty Boop" was first introduced as a black and white cartoon. As it turned out, the cartoons were not too successful.

Marketers rediscovered "Betty Boop" in the 1980s. Her merchandise has far outdistanced her exposure in any other fashion. She has become more popular worldwide now. I found her sitting in an antique mall in one of her sexier poses. She even picked a pretty pink just for today.

For an interesting blog visit, drop by and say hello to Kit. She lives in the beautiful state of Montana. She has a daughter with a very unusual, worthwhile and rather scary job.

I love Betty Boop and I always knew she was a Pinkie. And here she is showing off her lovely pink dress. A fun post LV.

I hope the weather brightens up soon. We actually had sunshine all day today. However, it is still not above freezing. This snow is NOT melting. Smile.

Happy Pink Saturday and happy weekend.
Hugs, Jeanne

I’d give my right arm for a Betty Boop like this one. She is so cool. For her ti be sitting there in her pink outfit is really snazzy. Thanks for your sweet comments about my hats. It is the least I can do and it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling. Hugs, Genie

Betty Boop have always been a lovely gal!
And then I saw somebody hanged a photo of mine in her wall - nice!
And nice that you liked it!
Best wishes, LV!

Betty Boop always makes me stop and look and then she always says buy me, buy me; but then I talk myself out of the item. She is a cutie in that pink frock.

I have never seen Betty Boop in Pink. That is why I just love these parties, you get to see something new. Have a great weekend and stay warm. It is freezing here up in Maine today. Can't wait for Spring.

Happy day After Pink Saturday LV, I tried to stop by yesterday but I kept getting knocked off line as I tired to comment. It's by terrible internet connection I guess. I enjoyed seeing your Betty Boop. Have a great week!

I remember Betty Boop from when I was a teen. I wasn't into her, but I remember the stores were selling a lot of the Betty Boop stuff. I knew she had to do with something in the past, but I didn't remember it was a caroon, so thanks for sharing that trivia.

I've never seen her in pink either, but the one you showed is cute and whimsical.

Happy belated Pink Saturday!
