PINK SATURDAY



Today I'm sharing some photos from  YEARS AGO.  These are pictures of our first home in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Our landlords were both professional artists and did a Spanish/American War mural on the patio wall.



The mural had several shades of coral, PINK  and orange.


This house had a tan color with a slight PINK  hue.


Both of our homes were adobe stucco, the last picture being acutally more PINK.

This dog knocked on our door one day, he  had wandered away from home. We did get hold of his owner to come and bring him home.  I don't think we could have ever fed him!!!!!

The home with the mural was full of the artists paintings, ofcourse we could never afford to buy any of them, living on an airman 3rd class salary.

These are great memories for us-just a couple of kids!!!


Happy Pink Saturday

Those murals are gorgeous! It's amazing how talented some people are. What a fabulous place to live and I think you had a great four-legged neighbour. Happy Pink Saturday!
