Sidewalks of New York Pink Saturday

We've got another glorious day in New York City and I spent some time this afternoon enjoying strolling on the sidewalks of New York. I'm always on the lookout for photos for Pink Saturday and over the last few weeks I've found a few pictures during my strolls about town. Delighted to share them with you. 

These bright baskets caught my eye. Definitely one of the most interesting street displays on Broadway. 


The wild pink wig also caught my eye. This was in the window of a store that sells beauty products. 


Not quite a garden party, but love seeing the spring clothes. I indulged when I was in Florida and bought a red dress and a pale blue shirt. Couldn't stay away from bright colors. I've been in darker colors most of the winter and definitely need a change.  Yes, that's my outline in the accidental selfie. 

Despite wanting to be outside every minute, I managed to clear my closet floor and two drawers. My synagogue is doing a clothing drive for people who lost their homes in the East Harlem explosion. This was the kick that I needed to take on this long overdue task. I found four pairs of black suede flats. Three of them are barely worn and two are going to a new home. Next stop, kitchen cabinets.

I hope you're having a great Saturday, too. As ever, thanks for visiting and take good care!

Buttercup, It's amazing what we are drawn to. Four pairs of black flats. MY daughters used to tell me that I had 15 pairs of beige pants and shorts.LOL For my mom it was white pants and purple ones too. Hope you enjoyed your day. xoxo,Susie

Love those baskets! I too need to clean out the closet. So wonderful to find a new, appreciative home for the outcasts. Saw the devastation of the explosion in the news. Unimaginable!

The baskets are lovely! So happy you had a good day. I cleaned the kitchen good today. It was nice to have the window open.

I love those baskets! You have such a sweet and kind heart. I need to do some downsizing. That explosion in New York was awful. So sad to be displaced like that and the loss of life was very sad.
We had cold windy weather today. Yesterday it was gorgeous, about 55-60! Sigh!
Good to catch up with you here.
Hugs, Anne

You always see such interesting things there. I love the display of baskets. I too am looking forward to the brighter colors of Spring. Not just in my clothing, but outside with some flowers blooming too. Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

That wig just cracks me up!
Good for you, jumping in the 'color pool' that is. I'm such a stick-in-the-mud. Love seeing the bright and happy shades on others, yet I'm reluctant to join in.

Hope your Sunday is glorious!

Well done on the closet spring cleaning! And great timing to help those who recently lost their homes. I hope you have a great week!

Very pretty pinks, Carol. I like those baskets! They would look nice as storage containers.

The building explosion was such a tragedy. Have they determined the cause as yet?
