~Heavenly Pinks~

"Pink clouds cross blue skies
Crystal diamonds light the way
Sight delights my soul"

~Deborah aka Miss Bee~

January of 2011 found me in Virginia
visiting my daughter and her family.
Do I need to tell you that it snowed while I was there?

One late afternoon I stepped outside, with camera in hand, to take some snapshots of the snow still on the ground.

What caught my eye was a most awesome sky.

Pink clouds gently rolled overhead like
pink fairy floss suspended in a sky of blue.

I watched as the sun set and the colors deepened.
It's not often that I get the see pink clouds in an open setting such as it was that evening.
At home, we are under a canopy of trees
and don't often see the late day sky.


If you love pink, you are so going to enjoy visiting all the ladies who have opened up their blogs to you today. They are waiting with open arms. Don't forget to leave a sweet comment to let them know you were there!


Today's Pink quote:

“I fell off my pink cloud with a thud.”

Fairytale Art

"Turkish Fairytale"

Once in awhile,
Right in the middle of an ordinary life,
Love gives us a fairytale.


I've just discovered an artist.

I think I'm going to love her art.

Bulgan Lumini's paintings are full of
vibrant colors and energetic visuals.

~Pink Gifting~

Do you love gifts?
I do!
Sometimes the wrapping is as beautiful as what is waiting inside.

Marie Arden knows about presenting a gift in a most elegant fashion. Marie is a pink lady - elegant herself.
She lives life to it's 'pinkest'!

Several weeks ago, Marie gifted me with the most beautifully wrapped box.

What was inside this box wrapped in lovely custom stamped pinky paper and tied up with snowflakes tethered to pink organza ribbons?

It was a beautiful book of watercolor drawings of Versailles bought by the pink lady herself in Paris!

If I remember correctly, she told me she's visited Paris around twenty-five times! (Correct me if I'm wrong, Marie.)

She also included a Creating Vintage Charm magazine.

Thank you, lovely Marie!

I have so enjoyed the book and magazine on these recent freezing days
while I've been trying to stay warm at home.

Have you met Marie?
Stop by and visit her at
Marie Arden Pink Living
Tell her Miss Bee sent you.
You will love her French inspirations.

We have another Pink Lady in Blogland - Miss Beverly of
How Sweet The Sound.
Each Saturday she hosts Pink Saturday. Join the fun!
