In the Pink...

This saying came from the 18th century and refers to something being perfect. To me, *in the pink* describes my mood today....maybe it's knowing Valentine's Day is coming soon? It's been my favorite holiday since I was a little girl! Maybe it's that the days are growing slightly longer? I also look forward to seeing all the Valentine roses. Anyone else *in the pink?* Pretty pink pillows; Pink rose teapot set; Pink Bombay chest; Pink Rose vintage gown to drink your tea in! Pink wallpaper; Pink Rose Bug; Pink Rose lamp (I have a white one); Pink Rose Chair; Pink Rug; The way I feel!

I love pink, especially the car and the pup. How cute.

Rita said...

Even the pup loves pink! I saw a guy with a really pink shirt on the other day and told my co-worker that there was one man that definitely knew his own manhood! He was certainly not afraid of wearing pink. Have a really "pink" day!

I love pink - when our daughter was a baby I'd delight in the pink laundry line - little pink things waving in the breeze. There's a bit of pink, sometimes very tiny, in every room of the house.
I once had a landlady who had a mansion in Hobe Sound - all her mirrors were tinted pink and her sitting room lights had pink bulbs - she wanted all her female guests to feel pretty!

Deanna said...

in the pink is a wonderful place to be. Lovely pink to enjoy.

Always a pleasure visiting your blog,

I think that is a pretty color of pink, but I think the best isthe dog in rose petals. That is awesome.
I hope all is still going along as planned.

Barb said...

Hi Janean!

Love the pink!! My DIL is having a baby in April . . . and it's a girl! So, I have been drowning in pink, and I love it! The pink chest of drawers is so lovely - I would love to have a room where I could add all the different colors of pink in! The last picture is adorable too...;0)

Hugs,
Barb

I do love small doses of pink...especially baby pink in roses..so I LOVE the lampshade. I do love the reds and pinks in the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic line. Love her floral roses fabrics. I am also loving the last photo of pup...lovely! :-) Puppy-petals!
Hugs to you Janean. Enjoyed. Also didn't get to your last post on trays, but LOVE it. I like having trays in rooms too. mirrored, metal, wicker, wooden...I am getting ready to go get a white cottage tray table with two drawers in it on Friday from a girl on Craig's. love it. The tray is removeable. Hugs to you!!!!

My house has only
small touches of
pink, but now that
I see these FAB images
of all things pink,
I'm asking myself
why??? How in the world
did you get your pup
to stay still for
that darling shot?
Beautiful.

Sonja said...

I don't have one single pink think in my house, and yet I LOVE pink! So whenever I bake or do a project, it ALWAYS includes everythink pink. Love your photos!

LV said...

You have a house full of pretty pinks. I have none. When I do Pink Saturday, I have to go out and find something in pink.

Nancy said...

Oh, I love the pink pillows in the otherwise plain room and I adore the little flowered teapot. You must be a kindred spirit because Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday, too. Enjoy this lovely pink time.

I am most definetely "in the pink" Will have my whole family together for the Super Bowl tomorrow.
Love, love, love the pink bug. Pink is high on my list of favorite colors. I wear it alot, but don't decorate with it. Did have a pink room in my old house for my granddaughters. Thanks for sharing "in the pink", Janean.
