the Pink Post

Cottage Magpie is having a color pink Valentines give away! You have to post a pink theme and then comment here to join so here it is, my pink post. I love pink, but my sweet hubby lives in an all female world (even the cats) and decorating with pink would just be too much for him. He sometimes talks wistfully about wanting a "man room" someday, but I digress. Anyway, I cant decorate with a lot of pink but I do have some tucked here and there that manages to stay under the man radar:>) This box is an old wooden cheese box I covered in some of my grandmothers feed sack material. I use it to store love letters and cards from hubby, (It's nearly full:>) The covered tureen is from my grandmother too. She loved pink and roses.
This beautiful pink pressed glass cake stand was a Christmas gift from Earl. He knows what I love and I love this! The little cup & saucer was a yard sale find.

And of course, I couldn't resist showing you a batch of hearts in the works. I should have some ready for etsy by friday. I see it's time to go to work now, yikes, got to go! See you all later:>)


  1. Did you hear me say "mmmm" when I first saw the photo????
    Well I got my package today and once again I said "Mmmmm!" I love the charm and the brooch too!

  13. Oh, how beautiful these all are. I think, as ladies, we all tend to love pink and would love to just layer it all around us. As you say, however, hubbys live here, too and we all have to get our "pink love" in other places. Your pretty hearts help out a lot...I want some more...2 is not enuf!! :)
