How inspired is it to take time out to think of PINK once a week? If you're like me, and don't decorate with pink much, you sort of have to go out of your way for it. And that's far from a bad thing!
The philosopher in me wants to make all sorts of associations with pink. I naturally think of my grand-daughters, fun and frilly fabrics, and story time. (Doesn't my doggie look like he's waiting for storytime too?)
But pink can remind me to embrace a kind of beauty that is a little beside my normal definition of it. Permission to allow that bit of something extra that might otherwise be lacking. To zero in on the softer side of my nature for a moment . . . or a day . . . .
Here I go with my out-of-print animal tales again! This one is Bunnies On Their Own, by Amy Ehrlich, illustrated by Marie H. Henry. There are a couple others in the series which I have yet to acquire.
A sweet pillow, a comfy chair, and a spot of tea to settle into an autumn story.
The pillow is vintage satin-stitched embroidery on natural linen.
The little doily and wicker chair are from Olde Post in Alamogordo, NM where I found so many special things recently while visiting my daughter. Rosie, the proprietor, named the market for the old post office building which it occupies. Fun things there!
I hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
Ciao! for now!
