pink and green depression glass

Well today's Pink Saturday couldn't suit me better as it's a pink and green theme to celebrate St. Patrick's day! One thing I love collecting is pink and green depression glass and I just love the combination of both these colours!

I have a built in glass cabinet at the end of my kitchen cabinets and this is where I display them.

I find the pink glass is harder to find than green so I get really excited when I come across a piece.

I love the delicate pattern on the pink plate in the background.
While we're on the pink theme, here is a set of dessert bowls and a divided dish called Miss America. I found these at Vinnies.
and I just had to show you a pretty painting and mosaic tiled 'plate' all in pink with green tiles by non other than Gail McCormack -her link can be found on my side bar. 
Today I'm joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.. thanks Beverly!
AND don't forget to enter my giveaway if this is your first time here... just 2 days to go! Good luck to everyone.. winner will be drawn either by or the old fashioned way..i.e. drawn out of a hat!
take care, Maryann

I've never heard of depression glass before. Has it something to do with the Depression? I love the delicate colours, anyway.

I love pink and green too. I don't have any depression glass though. I really like the beadboard cabinet that yours is displayed in.

Love your site. seeing the pink and green depression glass reminds me of years past. we lost our Mother at the age of 39 and never "learned" what things were. As a young girl, she worked at the Heisey plant and had some Heisey ware and we had the complete set of the pink depression ware!! but didn't know a thing about it!!! our Father sold it when he sold the home place. I would have loved to have had it, but not to be. but I do thank you for making me aware of some things!! I do have a yellow/amber depression plate which is quite beautiful and now I "look" at things differently!
Pink Hugs,
