Color Challenge: Pink
Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and I have pink on my mind. Pink hearts, pink flowers, pink frosting. So you know what this love of pink calls for? A Valentine's Day giveaway! And I had such fun participating in the giveaway last month hosted by Maureen at Penchants, Ponderings & Posies that I thought it would be fun to do a similar one. So, here you go! Between now and February 13th, put up a post of pink things from your home and comment here with a link. On Valentine's Day, I'll post a round-up, with links, to everyone who participated. Plus, I'll randomly choose a winner for a scrumptious prize, revealed at the bottom of this post.
Of course my favorite kind of pink is the pink in flowers. If I had to pick just one, I'd pick cabbage roses, but peonies are a very close second. I also love bleeding hearts (pictured above).
And if pink flowers are good, pink floral dishes are good too, right? Of course they are. I haven't yet figured out what to do with them all, but when I see pink floral dishes, I have to buy them. Aren't they pretty?
I even found a thrift-store chandelier that features pink flowers. This is going in my studio.
I think it will look cute with these pink floral curtains I have in there. I have these along one entire wall of closets in place of closet doors. Prettier and more space saving. I found two shower curtains at TJ Maxx and then found two more matching on eBay.
There's all kinds of stuff in that wall of closets like these strips of pretty fabrics for a quilt I'm (slooooowly) working on.
I also have other pink knick-knacks in my studio, like this reproduction pink toy car. I've shown this before, in my post about the shelves over my desk.
I don't just love pink flowers on fabric, I love it on embroidery, too, like this vintage piece I found (yes, at a thrift store).
But I love anything vintage, pink or floral, like this vintage quilt square that I bought on eBay (I have a collection of these). Wouldn't it make a great pillow cover?
Which brings me to the prize! One lucky winner will win a custom pillow cover made by me! You get to choose the size, style and fabric from my collection, and this vintage quilt square is included as an option! To participate, just put up a post featuring pink from your home or garden, and leave a comment here with a link to your pink post. On Valentine's Day, I'll post a round-up with links and choose one lucky winner for the custom pillow cover. Do you have a secret (or not so secret) passion for pink? I can't wait to see! :-)
Congratulations, Rhoda from Southern Hospitality! You won!
