A Dash Of This And A Dash Of PINK!!!

Well the hub-bub of Christmas is over and a new year has begun.  I
enjoyed the holidays, but now it's time to get down to business!  I
have so many things I want to do in the new year and one of them
is to blog more.  We'll see if that happens.  I'm a sporadic blogger at
best.  I don't blog for popularity or for anyone else, I blog for me so
when the inspiration strikes me, I blog.  When it doesn't, well...you
can tell because my posts are abit spread out!  I hope that doesn't
stop you from coming back and reading my blog and enjoying a story
and a picture or two along the way.

One thing that I am still in love with is the color PINK.  I love it and
won't ever eliminate it from my decor.  I see the pictures of these
gals with their all white decor and think it's just so stunning and
beautiful, but it's just not for me.  I just couldn't do it!  Don't you
just love these pics of Betsy Johnson's pink apartment in New York?
I think they're fabulous.  I don't go that far, but I think it's truly
amazing and glorious!  Unfortunately, my husband would not think so
even though he is comfortable in our fairly feminine and pink home.
I have actually eliminated some of the pink over the past few years
and he has definitely noticed...there must have been a LOT to start with!

One thing that I love about Betsy's home is that there is alot of pink, but
she doesn't have alot of little knicknacks and stuff hanging around.  Also,
I love the pink with that mustard color...never thought I would, but I do!

This is Betsy's living room.  Pretty spectacular I'd say!

Here is another view of her bedroom and fabulous pink kitchen.  WOW!

What I'm trying to get at is this...don't let others influence you one way
or the other.  Do what makes YOU happy in your decor.  Not everyone
is going to agree with your choices, but hey, they don't have to because
they don't live with you!  Just try to get along with the people who do!

And with that being said, I going to go make myself a cup of tea
and found a pink teacup to put it in...and YOU have a great day!

Since I live by myself, all the better!! I loves pink! Your Mom loves pink too, looking at her guest room! My Mom hates it so it is not genetic! I am so glad you will be at the dress form party, don't you think that will be fun to see them all in one page! I will remind everyone on every post between now an then! I can't wait for more blog posts from you, I know I will be in eye candy heaven

WOW Stacy that IS a lot of pink! I love pink. In all of it's hues.

Well even if it's not Spring yet, I am enjoying the Spring-like days we are having here.
Have a lovely pink day sweet friend.
