Swans rule this year





Swans 
Pink Boy bought me a swan fascinator to wear in the Easter Parade! He also gave me the Too Faced Dream Queen set which features swans!! Other friends gave me swan ornaments and I had purchased a few new swans for around the tree --the big swan tree.
The swan tree has been the main tree since 1988 or so when I purchased after Christmas on sale 25 Kurt Adler swan ornaments I still use them every year and have added many more swan and ballet and Paris themed ornaments to the large tree.
Have a Pink day!

Swan Pinkmas


Merry Pinkmas!
This was the year of the swan--swan presents, swans around the swan tree, a  new crepe paper swan figure that will stay up all the time. 

Hope you had a fun holiday
Have a Pink day!

Pinkmas and peonies and swans and...




Fresh pink peonies from Whole Foods  what a luxury in December! 
My big swan tree has some peonies tucked in it-- but they aren't real.
Hope the peonies last till tomorrow night for our Pinkmas Eve dinner with friends!
Have a PINK day!

Pinkmas 2018


Pinkmas seems to become pinker and more swan related every year. And this seems to be the year of swans in terms of finding some to use for decor.

 I  had the huge lifesize crepe paper swan made in California just to oversee the big tree that has many swan ornaments and swans around it.
Hard to find the swans in USA big in UK and some of them are from the UK. One swan is facing out the window on the back side of the tree.

I love Pinkmas and want it to be as pink and pretty and elegant as it can be.
Have a PINK day!

Dahlia fever




All these dahlias are stunning. I have just begun to grown them and have ordered more pink ones for next year. Dahlias are good for cut flowers so they go back in my area for  my cutting garden I've found several growers that I like: Frey Dahlias, Swan Island and Floret Farm Fairly easy care. Hope you are thinking ahead to your spring garden.
Have a Pink day!

A Valentine from Laduree






Laduree has a Valentine to the world coming out on February 13! 
It is
their new book, Time Time, the Art of Taking Tea.
It is a gorgeous book with great photos and lovely recipes. 
Pretty graphics. 
Laduree takes the simple act drinking tea and elevates it to an art form. 
They share my philosophy of making the mundane special which in turn makes your life more interesting and enjoyable.
 I have loved giving a tea party since I first got married. This love of tea time has motivated me to assemble a file of wonderful recipes for any manner of tea fetes and create a collection of fancy silver tea strainers, tea balls, pastry tongs all the little objects that you use for taking  tea. 
I also enjoy taking tea at various tea rooms, salons when we travel. Some of my happiest memories revolve around tea shared with friends here and on holiday.
Treat yourself and order a copy on Amazon or at your local bookshop.
Have a Pink Day!
