Pink Saturday... Save the Pink Bathrooms!

Happy Pink Saturday, all! Today's post actually comes to you thanks to my dear friend, Julia, who stumbled across this most fabulous Web site in her search for authentic vintage fittings. Naturally, she had to pass it on to me.
There is an important movement afoot - one all lovers of pink should be aware of. Yes, ladies, a piece of our history here in the States is slowly but surely being destroyed: Pink bathrooms. Who knew?
Now, I'm sure there are some out there who would say good riddance to pink subway tile and tubs and toilets. But, once you visit this site – Save the Pink Bathrooms – and see how much history and character is being sledgehammered in the name of modernization, you might change your tune. If nothing else, check out the 10 facts about pink bathrooms section - it's quite interesting.
Just after seeing this Web site, my sweetie showed me pictures of the work our new neighbors are doing on their house. Lo and behold - they have a pink bathroom! I asked him if he knew if they were keeping it or ripping it out, and he didn't. I fear they might be, as they seem to be pretty much completely renovating, adding-on, etc. I then launched into 10 minutes about the Save the Pink Bathrooms movement and I can only say my man is grateful we do not have a vintage pink bathroom. Because much to his chagrin, I would totally keep it.
Is anyone out there lucky enough to have one of these pink beauties in their home? I'd love to hear about it if you do. Unless you ripped it out, of course. If that's the case, just lie to me. :)
As always, thanks to Beverly for hosting this lovely weekly event. Be sure to stop by How Sweet the Sound for a complete list of participating blogs.
Wishing everyone a weekend surrounded by beauty...
