pinky swear...

Did you ever *pinky swear?* Most popular with school aged children; it's when two people entwine their pinky fingers and make a promise to each other. Is this done all around the world?
Originally, if you broke the promise you were to cut off your pinky finger. YIKES!
I know a lot of you adore pink, so I'm taking this opportunity to show some more pink. Feel the LUV!

So that's what it's called, my daughter does it all the time! ;-))

I love you pink post, there are so many pictures and shades of pink that I like. Those pink doors are fantastic. I'd love to do that on our house but will stick to going for blue instead...

Warm wishes

I want that cake and who ever thought I would love a pink front door?

I considered for about half a second whether I could make that work here instead of the gross orange front door I do have.

I'd never get it past Mr. P.

Janean, I swannee, I don't know where you get your pictures, but I just love scrolling through them to see what you've come up with every post... Whee!
It's fun. I do love pink, but with a house full of males, I have tried to avoid it pretty much, as they don't want too much girly pinky stuff around. ( and yes I did pinky swear!!! lol)
I do have some pink in mind for my vision of a porch, as you may have seen recently. I love that white wicker porch photo... and love the metal bucket with the yarn. And the pink door. oo la la...AND the pink VW van..so cool...
The doggy one takes the cake though. Found a porch swing on Craig's List yesterday for $20.00!!!!!!!!! I am picturing it painted white with PINK floral pillows... My vision is growing...(But I better get the porch soon, ya think???...lol!) Thanks I ENJOYED it! Have a great day. Hugs!

Girly Muse said...

Oh YES, I'm all about the pinky swearing! :)

Tammy @ tinselshop.com said...

Such pretty spaces, not sure if I could live in a pink room. As much as I like pink when I found out that I was having twin girls I decided to do their room in robins egg blue with pink floral accents (I NEED that floral tub for their room).

Have a great weekend, LOVE your color inspirations!

Best wishes,
Tammy

Who wouldn't love to have a pink VW van?....perfect!
The room with the pink rug is gorgeous, and the floral tub would be welcome in my garden any day......pinky swear!

Suz said...

Oh no pink here...that's my mom's color..and in her house it looks good
Me I'm more a wild gypsy type
like you..hehehe
but I have to tell you I'm rethinking that chartruse...
I saw it on a bed the other day and I loved it!
who knew?
and all because of you

Dolores said...

Good morning Janean!!
Pink is such a sweet soft color. Our 5 young granddaughters are happy with anything, as long as it's pink.
As usual, you have the neatest assortment of pinks. I'd NEVER think of a pink front door, but this one is so pretty......I pinky promise.

Maura @ Lilac Lane Cottage said...

Hello Janean! I like pink...I don't have a lot of it in my home anymore but I do have raspberry. I LOVE that VW van LOL...wooohooo wouldn't that be a blast running around in that thing! I also love the setting with the pink cake and champagne(?) and the flowered pillows. I'm a sucker for flowered things. Looking forward to more inspiration in your next post! Have a wonderful day. Maura

Greetings from the south...
I do love pink and can live in this color of all shades. I especially love the first pic of the bath... so soft looking and the fifth pic of the living room I love it especially that rug! Beautiful.

On a Harold Lloyd movie we recently watched... they did the "pinky swear", I had never seen it before then! Too funny.....
All of you have a great day.

Ann Marie said...

I love-love-love pink.. and I adored every picture! Pink makes me happy! :)

Just Breathe said...

I have never actually been the pinky swear type. I think I just would say "promise." Love the VW and the house with the pink front door and shutters.

Beverly @ My Sew Sweet Studio said...

Oh yes, I swear I love pink. I have 7 granddaughters, don't I? Love the VW Bus and I could get lost in the tub in that pink bathroom.

Sylvia said...

Hello Janean,

The dog is so cute !
Have a great weekend,
Sylvia

Barb said...

Love it! I really love the tub with roses on it - I pinky swear!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I love the bucket with the balls of yarn! My little collection would look so sweet in that! Love the pink...I pink swear! ♥

Sara's Sweet Surprise said...

Hello Janean~I was so delighted to see you strolled by for a visit.
This certainly "tickled me pink!"
I didn't know that tidbit of information about the pinky extraction, "YIKES" is right.
If you were to ask my hubs and sons if I liked the color pink and pink floral print fabrics they'd say "like" was a definite understatement!! I've tried to sneak it in at every decorating opportunity I can take and believe you me it was hard with team testosterone in the house.

Sweet wishes,
Sara

You are the place to come for inspiration!

I like pink a lot (more in the warm shades) but I'm not ready to paint my door pink! lol I always liked the pink car the Mary Kay directors drive too.

Karen said...

Love the pink cake-naturally and the pink shades on the bulldog! So lady-like, that color. Ha, maybe that's why I don't have much of it around. :P

Connie said...

Great pink pictures. Is that a MaryKay VW Bus? Yes, I pinky sweared when younger, but I didn't know I had to cut off my pinky if I broke the promise! Yikes!

dobco said...
