This lovely plant is a mystery to me., I think I have seen it before but do not know what it isl Anyone have any idea?I got it as a gift but my friend had no idea either.
Well, the doom sayers were wrong and he we go almost ushering in another Pink Year soon.I look forward to the future because you sure can't dwell on the past. Change is always present.

Hello Kitty meet Chanel




As I was strolling thru Macy's junior department the other day I spotted this cute jacket. It is black with some sparkle in it very French Chanel like look. As I got closer I noticed the Hello Kitty on the  pocket and label in the back. I tried it on and bought it with my 25% off coupon!!Whee
Living a pink life is so fun I adore Hello Kitty and now I can wear it and I saved some on it. 
An early Pinkmas gift to myself!

What Marie Antoinette would want for Christmas?









What would Marie Antoinette want for Christmas? My tree in our master bedroom is an homage to her. I put ornaments on that reflect her likes and interests. So in keeping with that idea, this year, I changed a bit what I have placed underneath it. I added things that she would most likely have had in her private rooms at Versailles or at Petit Trianon.
In her time she may have wished for jewels or perhaps an animal for the little farm of hers. Or large trees for the gardens. Gift giving at Christmas was not really big in her era. Back then it was more of a religious holiday with Mass and prayers and wonderful music and something good for dinner.Maybe she wanted a new harp or a new sleigh for snow sledding? 
If you peek under the tree you will find Sevres porcelain objects, a fan with her monogram on it, a nosegay from a grand ball, and a pinkish clock for her mantel.

Swan Christmas



 My swan had to be floating on snow bien sur!




My china obsession continues! While on a home tour in Madison, Georgia a few weekends ago I saw these lovely Lenox plates on a table. She had many years of them. I loved the 1994 plate with the cute Santa and toys. So I started looking on Ebay and bought 8 plates a few are duplicates ( I got two of the two I really loved) and I got to use them for a small dinner party we had the other night. Lenox Winter Greeting is another holiday pattern I like because it has birds and flowers on it not so just for Christmas..
My swan tree is near the dining room so the swan tureen makes sense. I bought that on EBay and it arrived in pieces--the value is ruined and I can't use it for food- Pink Boy glued it back together ! It is fine as a centerpiece.,  I have one more dinner party planned for Christmas Eve with dear friends it will be fun.I think the swan tureen will also be a part of that tablescape.

White touches at holiday time


I always do my seen swans on the bedroom mantel. This year I added some pearly white hearts I bought at Macy's trim a tree area. I already had the pearls. A pair of white feather wings is my center touch with the word Noel in glitter.
I love to sit in the bedroom and look at all the white twinkle lights and the swans. It is a calm quiet area  where I can daydream and relax.  I am really not buying many ornaments these days but the white hearts were a steal and so pretty.
I think Marie Antoinette would be right at home in my bedroom she loved jewelry and swans .I try to make my surroundings feel like  that era in French history before things got ugly.

Pinkmas touches in master bedroom





Making things merry and bright and pink in the master bedroom. I love to turn the twinkle lights on and just sit in there and enjoy all the pretties. I add something each year. And Costco roses with some cranberries in the vase made a pretty bedside table arrangement.

Pinkmas decorating


 Souffle inspects and looks for her gift!
 Snow on the bows I love glitter


 My Pink Santa collection is growing

Decorating for Pinkmas is so fun. I love to always be on the lookout for pink Santas and swans and pearls.
The skates are new this year and so girly I wonder if Marie Antoinette skated? She enjoyed sleigh rides.
Ribbons and twinkle lights are important. I tried some new twinklie lights this year called pearl lights. 
Hope you holiday is fun and pink.

Pagoda love

Those nifty gals at Savannah's Number 411 shop have this pagoda image in their machine and will do it in various sizes and colors for you. I had them do it on a piece of white linen and then had a local custom sewing lady turn it into this lovely silk pillow for my bedroom. See my little pink M in the center?! 
I adore pagodas and I believe Marie Antoinette had one at Versailles in the garden..
Have a Pink day!

Swan love




Swans are an enduring passion of mine. I would love to have a pair here in our development swimming on the little lake.  I used to have swans to play with and when it snowed they looked so pretty swimming and flapping about the pond. Maybe someday I will go to the association meeting and run this by them and offer to care for them.
In the meantime I will have to make due with pretty images like these from tumblr. Perhaps Santa will bring a pair to my house? Santa loves all animals.

Glittery swan sleigh


Pink Boy found this vintage child's sleigh at a local shop. I sprayed glue on it and added sparkly snow. And I added ribbons and filled it with gifts and put it in master bedroom in front of fireplace. I seem to have a thing about sleigh's!
