Pink Is Such A Pretty Color

I walked around my house and yard and asked myself, "What colors do you see?"  I see tan, brown, yellow, blue inside, and lots of green and tan outside.  One color that I did not see much of was  pink.  Pink is really a lovely color and I decided that I want to see a little more here in our home.  The best way to do that is to use pink in one of the guest rooms, both need a redo.  We do have four granddaughters with two more due to arrive very soon we'll have to have a "girls" room.

I was able to find a little pink around here so I thought I would share my touches of pink with you, after all it is Pink Saturday at How Sweet the Sound. 

Hellebore plant in my garden.

They bend down so I put my camera underneath and clicked a few dozen times to see what I could see.

This sweet little bunny with pink ears and nose sits on a bench near a lavender basket of rosebuds.

Primroses, so bright, though surrounded by weeds and mole hills.

The last of my birthday cupcakes with a swirl of pink frosting.

I do have pink flowers in my valance made with hand towels in my sewing room.

Pink ribbon on an antique pin cushion.

This pretty box holds special little notes from friends and family.

Oh, I must finish the little pink hair bands for our soon to be born granddaughters.

I just bought this pink and green fabric which I have plans for.

This fun pink bag holds most of my embroidery floss.  This was a gift from Melanie, the sponsor of the sewing retreat I went to in February.  One of the ladies there machine embroidered my name on it.

Oh, and I love these sweet pink salt and pepper shakers made by two of my sweet granddaughters.

I hope you have a wonderful Saturday!
