Pink Saturday



It's another Pink Saturday being hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Today I thought I would post pictures of some vintage PINK items from 1957. I was a young girl that year, but PINK was a very popular color!


This is an ad for a new PINK kitchen in 1957. And below it is an ad from Whirlpool in 1957 for their PINK washer!
This is a 1957 PINK Nipper RCA Radio
It was also a year that PINK was a very popular color for a car!
1957 PINK Ford Thunderbird

Isn't this a great shot of its steering wheel and gauges?1957 Fleetwood PINK Cadillac
1957 PINK Buick Roadmaster Convertible 1957 PINK Oldsmobile1957 PINK Cabriolet Imperial Convertible

Annie I love your pink so much today. It brought memories of my pink kitchen in 1964. It wasn't as big as the one you showed but so much like mine it made me smile. I had wallpaper like the picture in pink and red. My floors were red and white checked (12by12 tiles)and my cabinets were very PINK.LOL. Love the cars too.

Thank you for your sweet comment about Cocoa. It is such a sad loss.

Hugs...Jeanne

Hi Ann, What a wonderful post but it's funny. I was a young girl in '57 too and I don't remember my Mom cleaning house in high heels. :) Thanks so much for the heads up about the link. I emailed Beverly. Have a great Pink Saturday. ~ Lynn

I remember that year. Elvis loved pink cars and bought a bunch of pink Caddies to hand out like candy. Happy Pink Saturday!

Ann, I really like your Pink Saturday post. I love the 1957 cars. I remember Elvis Presley had a pink Cadillac. I also remember that a lady in my mother's card club had a pink kitchen and I went with my mother and her friend to see it. Of course, they thought it was awesome.

Hi My Friend Ann!

Love ya,

Happy Pink Saturday!

fabulous Pink. I have read that after WWII pink was used to help forget the years of deprivation and the blues, greys and khakis of that time. Now that the women could stay at home, they chose pink to give everything that susie homemaker look vs the 'rosie the riveter' look

Annie, what a fabulous pink post you did today. Not that I would wish myself being any older than I am, but I would have loved to have been living back in 1957 if it could have allowed me to have a pink kitchen like the one you showed the ad for. And those pink cars.. how fun would that be to drive around in one of those?? Happy Pink Saturday.

Neabear said...

What a fun pink post! I don't remember these pink items probably because I was just a teeny infant then. It was fun seeing all the pink on your post. Happy Pink Saturday!

I've never been a pink person, but you've got some great shots here.

Joy said...

Oh I can't get over that pink radio. It's fantastic.

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, dear Ann.

I love your memories today. Wouldn't it be fun to have that pink T-bird?

Hi Ann,
Loving that kitchen (not too wrapped on the wallpaper thou)
The cars look great too, your hubby collects vintage cars, any of his in pink?

Nanette said...

Wouldn't it be fun to drive one of the pink cars....what am I saying, I want to have one... maybe I better sign up to sell Mary Kay, I hear you can earn a pick car on there, but they wouldn't be near as classic.
Thanks, Nanette

My mom had a pink studebaker when I was little. My stepdad hated to drive it! Can't say that I blame him. Mimi

Juri said...
