Oh My, A Mermaid!

Every now and then I find a treasure that warms my heart. 
This happens often when I shop at Abigail's in Idaho.
 When I saw this vintage wall plaque set I couldn't stop smiling.  
This bathing beauty 
and her swimming companions came home with me in my suitcase.
A bit kitschy, oh so cute and PINK!   If they warm your heart, too, you can find them here.

Oh my gosh Cindy, I think my mom still has those plaster molds. Will have to check the garage and storage building. We had those in our pink bathroom from the 50s. Pink and gray were the colors of the bathroom. You truly find some really cute kitschy things. Love your blog. I am a new follower and just recently started loving pink again. Hugs, Pat

Oh what a fabuous find!! So retro and so 50's. I bet if my mother saw these she would remember the color and the decor. I love them, and would love to see them up. Char
