Pink Saturday

Even though pink is my favorite color, I have been hesitant to join in Pink Saturday (hosted by How Sweet the Sound) for the following reasons:
*The preferred decorative style in our home is functional-masculine.
*I haven't had much success taking clear, attractive macro shots with my little point and shot camera.

But I do love pink; so here are some little ways I express this suppressed affection.

One of my first "home" purchases when we moved here 10 years ago. The Chinese character in the middle is Ài (pronounced long I) meaning "Love."

Pink Scarves: most were gifts from sympathetic pink-loving friends.

Pink clothes

My Mother's birthday is coming up March 5, and I missed my precious nieces' birthdays this winter; so I am exploring the wonderful treasure trove called Etsy in search of something special to send them. My mother loves rabbits; so that's where I'll begin.

I also love how Karen at A Scrapbook of Inspiration some times highlights lovely pink items she's found on Etsy or another blog for her Pink Saturday post . One of my favorite Etsy finds is this lovely Secret Garden lampworks bracelet. Some of you know that "The Secret Garden" by Frances Hodgson Burnett is one of my all time favorite stories, and this bracelet is just the thing that rose garden dreams are made of.

Suzanne at Earthbound Gems says, "I love creating Jewelry that's Bold, Rich in color, Earthy, Unique and reflect more than just a hint of expression. My pieces are inspired by my roots, French Canadian Indian, making for what I hope you'll feel is a nice combination of hearts reflected in my creations."
Please drop by and visit her and see some more of her lovely bracelets & necklaces.

While wandering through Etsy, I also discovered this wonderful princess pink Prom necklace at Babbette Bistro's Shop. I love its pale luminescent shades and delicate elegance. Babbette's Victorian modern jewelry is amazing, like wearing an heirloom of vintage-dream collage art.
You can find her here in Blogland as well.

Thank you to Suzanne & Babbette for letting me share their photos and a little about their shops. As for my Mother & nieces. You'll just have to wait and see what I picked out. March 5th is just around the corner.

I leave you with a picture of a precious pink rose given to me by my dear husband. He did a good job didn't he.

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

So I got my post all written up and found that a person has to be a little more fore-thinking than I normally am to share in this particular theme day. I will still play along, but without being linked. You can find the other true Pink Saturday participants here.


  1. Ooh pink! Isn't it the grandest color?! Your items are lovely and you and your camera did a great job. (When my daughter was expecting her 2nd child, we SO wanted a girl this time. I kept creating everything in pink even after we *thought* it might be a boy. It worked as little Catelyn Olivia is here!) xo,

  2. You have beautiful pink things, I really loved the scarves and tops....I love pink too, do not have as much as I should though after seeing yours!~ Have a great weekend!

  3. Yes he did, it's gorgeous! You have some beautiful scarves hanging there too! Happy Pink Saturday, i hope you enjoy the land of the pink. I took a break this weekend to get re-inspired! Have a beautiful weekend!

  4. I have it figured out now, between the last two posts.... What I need is daughters-in-law and granddaughters. But I can wait. Besides boys are pretty fabulous.


Thank you for your comments. They help me feel that I am some how connected out here in Blogland and not just writing to the air.
