Pale Pinks for Summer


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!

I just love this post Jacqueline! You've captured the beauty of pale, pale pink - my favorite hue of pink. I especially love that tea cup & teapot in your first few photos, and those pale strawberries on the vintage tablecloth are wonderful!

Summer brights are nice, but the soft emotional breeze your soft pinks give in the middle of humid July is a nice respite.

I just love your post. I enjoy pale colors this time of year also. Of course shell pink is my favorite. Thx for sharing yours. I found a lovely English pink dessert set. I just wish I could find some info on it.
