My First Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday my sweet Blogger friends! I am so excited to be joining all of you other lovely ladies that adore and celebrate the "girliest" color created. I want to thank sweet Beverly at for welcoming me and for providing us with this opportunity to share our favorite pink things with one another.
I had quite an experience this morning putting together this post. I got up really early this morning (I don't even do that to go to work during the week) and started adding pictures to my post and my internet service starts acting up. I had to try twice to upload pictures and the internet kept closing the site. So I plugged the computer in and decided to sit outside because sometimes the internet works better out there. The cord kept coming unplugged and once it got tangled around Mr. Stoops. The internet wasn't working very well out there either so I finished my cheerios and got dressed and drove up to my office where I was much more successful. I hope you enjoy and appreciate my inaugural Pink Saturday post on :
This is a child-size hat that I bought at a wonderful antique mall that is now closed. I fell in love the moment I saw it.
I love the fact that almost the entire thing is a sweet, lovely, feminine shade of PINK!!!

This is another sweet child-size hat that looks like it is probably the perfect little Easter bonnet.

I think I may add some more flowers and embellishments to this one. She needs some more PINK pizazz!

I bought this hat at a local discount store a long time ago and added ribbon and roses to it. I have worn it a few times to church and to tea parties.

It is so summery and sweet. I love the fact that this hat is also almost entirely

Here is another PINK hat that I bought at another antique mall that is also, unfortunately, no longer in business. I can see this hat on top of a lady who lived in the 20's or 30's. I haven't worn it yet but I love to tie my hair up and try it on every now and then.

This hat is purely PINK and is covered with PINK sequins so it sparkles like crazy! Now what lady can resist anything that is PINK AND sparkly?

This is my favorite hat that I own right now. I bought it at a garage sale for 50 cents and took her home to add some beautiful ribbons, pearl garland, netting, and flowers. I have a dress that matches her perfectly and I wear them together sometimes to church and to tea parties.

I love how soft and feminine this hat looks. I can imagine a lady from a Jane Austin novel wearing this hat while she is prancing through a meadow on her favorite horse.

It was fun to take this plain hat and dress it up. She looks a lot happier now!

This is a hat I bought this summer to wear to go sailing with James. He has a small boat and has promised to take me out on the water, but he is so busy now that it might not happen this year. I have still worn this hat a few times to church already. Because it is white I can change out the ribbon and flower(s) to make it coordinate with the outfit I am wearing it with.

I know it doesn't look like much, but it is really pretty on. It is also a lot of fun to dress it up to match my outfits!

This is also a hat I bought this summer. I love how feminine and beachy it looks with the netting and that gorgeous pearl brooch embellishment. Now it just needs some PINK!

I bought this hat at an antique mall that is no longer in business and I love it because it is covered in shiny sequins.

I can imagine this hat on Jackie O. for a very special event or dinner. I have not worn it yet but maybe if there is a special opportunity I will do that!

Now I wouldn't be a true Okie if I didn't share the hat of all hats . . . the cowgirl hat. Here is my rendition all flowered up!

I personally think she needs a little more work so I'll get right on that! Maybe the next time you see her she will be wearing a little more PINK!!!

I hope you have enjoyed seeing some of my spring/summer hat collection and my first PINK Saturday post. Please let me know which one is your favorite!
I wish you a very blessed and sweet PINK Saturday!
Much Love To You!
Love Tammy


  1. Welcome to PS! You sure did work hard this morning to get your post up! A true pinkie I think. Your hats are lovely and I really like the way you embellish them. I am now following you so I can see more pinks!

    Happy PS,

  2. Hi Tammy :) A BIG WELCOME to Pink Saturday!! I always look forward to doing my posts for PS, well, because I love pink, and I have tons of it in my home, lol :) Your collection of hats is wonderful, and love how you've embellished some of them to make them so lovely and romantic with the roses and florals.

    Have a lovely weekend, and a Happy Pink Saturday to you!

    Warmest hugs to you my fellow pink lovin' friend!


  3. Welcome to Pink Saturday! I love your hats, especially the pink one with the large roses. I love hats but they give me a headache. See you next Saturday!

  4. I especially love that first hat! Wow, I can see you wearing it now. Have a great weekend.

  5. Hi Tammy,

    I've never seen such a beautiful hat collection! They have a dual purpose: you can wear them and decorate your house with them as well. They are too pretty to hide. Happy Pink Saturday!


  6. Hi Tammy!
    Oh I am loving all your sweet hats!
    Welcome to PINK Saturday!
    Happy PINK!

  7. Welcome to Pink deserve an award for such dedication to getting your post done! And, such a lovely PINK post, too!

    Love those darling childrens hats and you have displayed them so prettily!

    I love to decorate, too and just never stop....I have lots of roses and pink in my cottage too!

    Happy Pink is so nice to meet you!!!

  8. Hello Tammy:
    Welcome to Pink Saturday and the wonderful world of blogging!

    I'm so excited to hear that you enjoy tablescaping. There is a large group of us in blogland and it is so much fun to see what everyone puts out.

    Just a note for your future posts. You can do them ahead and post the time for them to publish.

    I host a weekly meme called Summer Sundays. It's all about what summer means to YOU! Hope you'll come and join in the fun of Summer Sundays!

  9. Welcome to Pink Saturday, Tammy!! I know you will love being a part of all the pink fun.

    I LOVE your hats!! I have shared several times that I am a HUGE classic-era movie fan (translation: ADDICT!), and in the 30's and 40's movies, nearly all the women wore hats. I have fallen in love with them, but so far, I don't own any. I never seem to find any; however, I'm not sure I'm bold enough to wear them, as I feel I would get strange looks since women just don't wear hats anymore. That shouldn't bother me, though, as I generally get strange looks anyhow, as I almost never wear pants. I am often asked why I am so dressed up, but, really, it's just my normal everyday attire. So, I need to shake things up even more by finding and wearing an exquisite hat like yours.

    Thank you for sharing. You've inspired me!!

    Have a super weekend.


  10. Wow such gorgeous collections.

  21. Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Tammy. I am so glad you decided to join us. Hopefully, next Saturday's post will be easier. ;-)

    Girl, I am in love with every single one of these gorgeous hats. I don't believe I can choose a favorite. Maybe, I would choose the hat in the ninth picture from the top.

  22. Tammy, welcome to PS. Such pretty hats. I am not a hat girl (they just do not look good on me, sigh), but I do love the 3rd and 5th hats. I envy those who look good in hats, they are so girly.
    Thank you for sharing your hats, I will be by sometime in the future to visit your creative space, it is taking me some time to visit WBC party blogs.

  23. what timeless first pink post.
    loved the tenderness and cuteness in it.
    way to go.

  24. Happy PINK SATURDAY four days late! ahahhahahah I didn't join in this week because I forgot to send my email in! :( BAH!

    LOVE YOUR PRETTIES my friend. A JOY to see your gorgeous hats. LOVE THEM!


  25. Hi Tammy, I just discovered your blog and I'm sure enjoying it.... little later when I have more time I'm coming back to go through it. You really have good taste when it comes to hats, your collection of them are gorgeous... I know I would be wearing quite a few of those.

    I think I'm going to do another Pink Saturday soon to join in all the fun.

    Have a Wonderful Day*
