Pink Saturday Post

I have a confession to make...
I think I'm all out of PINK and my camera has decided to rebel against me and not work. I've been forced to go through some old pictures for pink inspiration so if you've seen these somewhere along the path, please forgive me! I'm off to buy a new camera this evening!


This darling lamp post came from a previous post about a story book neighborhood nearby. It's streets are lined with Tudor style Cottages with some Victorian and Craftsman Bungalows sprinkled in between. When Christmas arrives I plan to go back and do a Holiday Post on the little neighborhood so stay tuned! I just love the pink roses blooming at the base of the lamp post, don't you?
There are piles and piles of pillows on my bed. So many that my husband says there's no room for people, but my thoughts are that once the bed is made it doesn't need people messing up the pillows. I have a bed fetish so I have a collection of quilts, comforters, and chenille spreads that are rotated throughout the year. This is my spring look.

The trunk at the foot of my bed belonged to my great great? grandfather and was brought across the plains in a covered wagon. My mother passed it on to me when I was 17 and the first thing I did was paint it, what else... pink. It now stores many of my beloved Christmas ornaments. Can you believe the thing still smells of moth balls? I've had it for 30 years and have never put a moth ball in it. Those are some powerful little balls!

Hey Cori,

Thanks for commenting on my blog! My sister does, indeed, live in Lunada Bay but we actually grew up in Seal Beach, CA. I believe she's been living in Lunada bay for the past 5 years. They love it there. I hear the weather has been crazy! :)

My sister and I both visit your blog regularly. I LOVE PINK TOO! Your blog is absolutely beautiful.

Thanks for visiting and I will pop in regularly!

Love the pink! I have not seen these before, I really like that lamp post. We have a neighborhood like that her in Sac, and it is called the Fabulous Forties. All the houses are classic and all very different, from cottages to mansions. I love to drive through there are gawk.
Thanks for the movie recommendation, I really would like to see it. CC is really on fire for the Lord. He makes no apologies in interviews. It is great.

Have a blesses weekend,
Moorea

Love your pink pics. Hope that you find a great camera.

It is really amazing how heirloom chests/trunks still retain the scent of moth balls, etc. I have one that my great uncle made and I have not placed any in there either, but the inside still harbor the scent...but hey no moths or other bugs :)

Have a great Pink Saturday!

I love your pillows. I keep a lot on my bed too and I am continually rotating my quilts and chenille bed spreads. I'd love to have a trunk like that to keep my treasures in.
Have a wonderful pink weekend!

I love your trunk Cori! I have one that was the box that my in-laws shipped all their favorite belongings in when they left Italy to live in America --can you imagine having just one box to put it all in? I painted mine, too, as it was just a box of wooden boards, but I treasure it so much.

Hugs, Pat
