New playmate Gogo puppy toy

Are these all for me?

We are ready for our sleigh ride now!

Sydney-Marie loves to open her gifts

Miss Moss looks on

Happy Pink Saturday!

for more pink posts

My girls love to open gifts especially Christmas ones! They all get in on it and enjoy it.

They were a bit confused by their new pal GoGo puppy--she walks and barks!

Lola knocked her over at one point and ran away. Silly girls

Snowflake-Marie Mouser our newest addition to the family enjoyed the present opening as well.

Miss Moss was an observer wearing her pink bow.

Hope it was this much fun at your home

Have a Pink day!

Stupid virus people

I have been absent from blogging because my computer got another virus and it just cost me $240.00 to get it removed and get Malware installed. Many of these virus people are in Russia and then they want $47.00 to remove it from your computer after it is sick. It is all a scam This is the second time. I hope now my computer is finally protected. I do not wish the virus people a pink day I wish they would drop dead. New posts will be forthcoming shortly.
Have a Pink day!

Pinkmas pink tree is for the birds

I am obsessed with wings this year they are everywhere!

Most of the birds are glass blown ones or glitter ones

I love the hummingbirds

We always have a small tree in the kitchen. The one we usually put up sits on the floor and is a garden themed tree, but my mother in law lives with us now and that tree is sort of hard to get around so we decided to put a smaller tree on the breakfast table.

I found this wonderful PINK Barbie tree on eBay a few years ago and just held on to it. Now it is our bird tree-- we can see a lot of birds from our breakfast/family room area. Right now we see chickadees and blue birds and cardinals a lot. We love birds and love watching them.

Have a Pink day!

Some changes to my Marie Antoinette inspired tree

Pearls, swans, masks make it a Marie Antoinette tree

New this year glitter sleighs

The Queen and a custom fan with monogram

Queen's little lamb with ribbon lead

This is the second year I have had a Marie Antoinette inspired tree in the master bedroom. Last year I had pink glass balls on it and this year I added more glitter ornaments. The sleigh is new. We know that Marie Antoinette enjoyed riding in a sleigh on the grounds of Versailles. The little glitter carriages I found last year and bought all that the shop had. The rest of the ornaments came from Michael's!

There are sprays of pearls at the top of the tree and a lamb with a ribbon lead( just like she had at her mini farm Le Hameau) under the tree.

Of course, in her time, there were no decorated trees it was more of a strictly religious holiday.

Have a Pink day!

French yule log cakes buche de Noel

Paris Ritz

Mandarin Oriental Paris

Lenotre buche de Noel

Stephane Leroux

Buche de Noel

I used to make my own and mine looked like a real log with dark frosting that I ran a fork over and a bump for a branch and it had chocolate mousse inside and I dusted it with snow sugar.

These are the yule logs of top French chefs in Paris. Some are very original. I am sure they all taste divine. Wouldn't you like to go sample them all in Paris this year?

Have a Pink day!

Potager in winter for Show and Tell Friday

Potager in fall full of radish and lettuces and herbs

Basil, oregano, gaura in center for pink color in spring

Mustard plant- pretty and I guess I can eat it?

Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home:
My fall potager is full of herbs and lettuces. I leave the gaura in the middle all year it comes back in spring full of pretty pink flowers. We are letting the other bed rest and will plant that one with tomatoes in spring. The top bed will remain herbs and lettuces for easy picking at dinner time.

We added a mirror on the patio. I think it looks good and I can check my lipstick !

Have a Pink day!

Marie Antoinette's sleigh-- sort of

Here it is under our tree- our big swan tree all pink and white

I saw this red wooden sleigh in a shop window after Christmas
Details-- details are important in my vision for the sleigh

Glue them on with Gorilla glue super glue sets in 30 seconds
Our beautiful pink confection of a sleigh in the style of Marie Antoinette
Golden stencil of my monogram

Sydney-Marie tests it out--she feels very royalWe spray painted the embellishments white with glitter on top

Cherubs lead the way on the front

Another monogram larger on the back

Happy Pink Saturday and Show and Tell Friday
This was one of my 'projects' this year. I bought the red sleigh last December. As soon as I saw it in the window I knew what I would do with it.

First we painted it pale, pale pink. Then we painted the runners gold. When I say we I mean Pink Boy did I just have the ideas he has the skills and the muscles!

Then I ordered embellishments from Do It Yourself Chic. They arrived in about a week. We spray painted them white, then sprayed white glitter on top and measured and attached them with gorilla glue. It is so important to lay them out on something flat first get the design then measure the area and make sure you know where they are going you only have 30 seconds till the glue sets up.

This pink Marie Antoinette style sleigh will go next to the big pink and white swan tree and I will use it to hold presents. It was a fun project and not that expensive. research tells us Marie Antoinette enjoyed sleigh rides in winter at Versailles. Her sleigh was probably a lot more ornate.
