7 Touches of Pink for Spring

First, I'm in love with this shade of pink.
Some years ago now, it was the shade that I painted my daughter's first bedroom.
Here it is is a pretty scalloped quilt found for 20 dollars.










Secondly, I love pink spray roses and this time of year it seems easier to find them.
Here they are in an Ikea bucket.










Third) Here are pretty bottles of something pink to drink, and rose scented drinks are calming.









 Fourth) For the next couple of months our garden will be at its best.
Gathered here are some pink blooms from the garden. 











Fifth) Here is a pretty pinkish glass jar with a candle placed with another garden arrangement.
To make the bouquet, just lay a flat bowl in the bucket and then layer the blossoms.












Sixth) One single spray of pink roses in a bottle can be so elegant.





















Seven) Here is a garland of pink fabric roses found in a craft store.


I am also making a pink and white cheese cake. It is so cute, and it is for my sister's birthday, because that's what she wanted. I actually made it for my daughter three months ago, but forgot to take a photo. Alas, it is not done. I knocked a wine bottle behind the refrigerator, so all I accomplished last night was the crust. Typical mess in the kitchen for me!
Hopefully, later this week there will be a photo. It was suppose to be 8 touches of pink. :)


No compensation was received for these selections.
They are just pretty and inexpensive pretty and all removable pretty accents.
I love to look at objects in different ways.
For example, a two dollar glass water bottle is quite pretty as a bud vase once you have finished the water. I'm always using pretty cans, bottles, and empty containers for pretty vases. Here's a spring mantle from a few years ago or here is one from three years ago unopened.
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day.
Thank you for visiting each and every year.
xoxo

    1. Thank you so much. I painted that way for the observation you mentioned. It is such a tiny kitchen that it makes it look a bit more open. Have a wonderful evening. xoox Su

    1. Thank you, Brandi. I went to the store, because I needed a new mattress pad, and saw the color and the pattern. I found it in Steinmart. I don't know if you have them where you are, but they can have some really great items of nice quality. Happy Valentine's Day. xoxo Su

  11. Your pictures are magazine worthy beautiful. The pops of pink in your home scream that Spring is on the way. I too add pink to my farmhouse as well as the tiny house, around this time of year. The pug and pink flower pillow is the cutest ever. What a pretty photo and invitation to and reminder of the Spring season.

    1. Thank you so much, Tonita. I found that at a local shop that puts vintage images on linens. I always love a touch of pink during spring otherwise I tend toward blues for accents. Thank you for visiting and for your lovely comment. xoxo Su

  12. It is hard for me to even imagine a garden with blossoms in it right now! We will see nothing until May. Your photos are lovely. That is my favorite color of pink too (the blanket on the bed), and probably really the only shade of pink I like. And it is beautiful!

    1. Thank you so much, Judy. I am funny about pink too, but that is my absolute favorite shade of pink too. It reminds me of pink in shells and in coral. xoxo Su

  13. Love seeing all your pretty in pInk. I swoon over your vignettes that show the hope of spring to come. Ahhhh we here in the midwest are counting the days. 18 inches of snow last week did not help the winter blues. So I am going to swoon through your pretty pink post and dream of Spring to come.
    xoxo

    1. Thank you so much, Carla. That is so kind of you to tell me. Pink is one of my favorites as well. White and grays are not really colors, but I love them. My favorite colors are blues and aquas and pinks from the sea. Have a wonderful week and stay warm! xoxo Su
