City Slick Pink!

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound is hosting Pink Saturday! Please visit her for lots of pink inspiration.

Today I would like to show you some of the pink that caught my eye in New York City.

This display was in Cure Thrift Store near the Lower East Side. The store had all of their clothes for 1/2 off and proceeds went to fund diabetes research.

This was a store display in Greenwich Village.

This bag was in the gift shop at Liberty Island.
And finally, here I am in an edited photo with my nephew Austin. The minute I saw this pink and black bag, I knew I had to have it. I paid 15 dollars for it, and later my sister bought 3 of them from one of the street vendors for 30 dollars. She loves to remind me of her bargaining talent!

We call this photo "City Slickers." LOL The scarf is from the thrift store and was only $2.oo.
Actually, I'm pretty sure everyone knew we were tourists. We were carrying around cameras and and these things around our neck with credit cards and other important stuff.


Thanks for stopping by today, and hope everyone has a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Don't you love the energy and excitement of NY? I was afraid everyone would be so snobby, but I found NY to be a really friendly city and a place I'd love to visit again. I love the photo technique you used on the "city slicker" shot!
Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours.

Love all the pink, Diane! Great scarf, by the way! Happy Valentine's Day!♥

Hi Diane
Wow-- even in NYC you can find a bargain! You have to tell me the address of that thrift shop -- I never seem to be able to find them.

You bag is cute! I'd say a good quarter of the people you see in Times Square are tourists, so never fret about that.

Hope to see you next time!

Happy Pink Saturday!Happy Valentine's Day!

Hugs, Pat

Beverly said...

I think 50% of NYC is tourists so be proud!! The shop window in the village is fab and the price of your scarf made up for the "ooops" on the bag!

Happy Pink Valentine's Saturday!

Hi Diane! Lucky you to be in the Big Apple! I LOVED visiting Ellis Island---and I brought home several souvenirs, but not a swell bag like yours! (it was still worth the price YOU paid for it! )

Hope you had a great Valentine's Day and a wonderful Pink Sat! dana

Your noses had to be pink too walking around NY this time of year...but it's worth a little chill...I love that city!
