I like pale pinks best this time of year. Soft, cool, and quiet, a pale pink soothes the senses after the busy week we've had.
Gingham checks were big in summer when I was a girl. We always had at least one summer outfit that had them. Light and cheery, pink checks are perfect next to summer pink florals.
Pale strawberries and cherries adorn a larger checked pattern on my 50's print tablecloth. I love the farmhouse feel it lends to the table.
My few garden roses are all spent, so the pale rose details on my English China tea cups serve as a cheery substitute.
A small collection of vintage botanical postcards in the palest of pinks barely whispers that we're in the very pink of summer.
Against a white ironstone background, or propped in a creamy colored flower pot, the pale pinks make a sweet and subtle statement.
A single pale rose decorates the handle of a vintage white embossed tea cup.
Wishing I had more of THESE in my garden, and
hoping you're enjoying the Pink of Summer!
Have a terrific weekend!
Ciao! for now!
