I'm Thinking Pink

It's official.  I have a new favorite color.  It's Pink!
Who knew?  I didn't like it so much as a child, didn't really think about it as a good color for me growing up,
didn't even decorate with it (2 sons and 3 nephews!!).
So.  All because of y'all, I'm now a Pinkster!!!
Everywhere I look, I see something pink that I've just gotta have.
There are some awesome shutters somewhere that I'm so in love with, but alas, not for sale!!
So in the meantime, these will have to do.

The tatted pieces above are my try at an edging I saw in a picture.  I'm working on a longer length now that I've worked out the pattern.

Hope you enjoyed the Pinks in my world!  I'm always on the lookout for more though...just so I can join this party!  Not really.  They are gorgeous and I'm having so much fun using pink in my home. 
I'm joining up with the Pink Party People for Pink Saturday!!
and join Beverly for a great weekend of beautiful PINK!!
As well as the Party Show Off Your Cottage Monday
Lots of lovelies!!
Blessings, Doni

Hi Doni!

Love these little vases, and I do love pink! I had sheets many years ago with the same pattern on them!

I also have lots of tatted things, as my mother-in-law tatted a lot. In fact, when she moved ,she gave me all of her tatting shuttles, and threads. I just could'nt learn the knack of it. :( Yours looks great!

Hello Doni,
What darling puppies at the top of your blog!

I have always loved pink but I never decorated with it much either because I raised three boys. Once they all moved out, I started decorating with pink even though all my granchildren were boys. Then last Christmas, my little granddaughter came along.

Love the pink tatting and the vases but I love the pink glass basket! Happy Pink weekend to you.

I wanted a girl so I could dress her in pinks and frilly things. But, I got a son and am very proud of him.

Happy Pink Saturday, Doni. I am so glad you joined us today.

You've put together some lovely pink pieces. And, your tatting is exquisite. My grandmother once had a lady that stayed with her, and she tatted. I was fascinated to sit and watch her when I was a young girl.

Well you dropped in on my blog and so I popped over and fell in love with yours!! Of course now I am a follower and would LOVE to participate in "pearls and lace Thursday" Let's just see if I can remember lol!

Doni, thanks for leaving a comment and allowed me to find you that way. When you say lace party I thought ;" How come I didn't know about this?. I eat, dream, collect lace. I don't think I will ever be able to use some of it, I considered myself a caretaker of this things. I was also so happy to read your profile and realized we have more than one thing in common, which is the love of God. I will try to visit with you Thursday and show you a piece of lace that was gifted to me last week. I'm going to take a peek at your craft room next, blessings, Marta.
