Swans rule this year

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!

Swan rocker find... finally

Well, after looking for about 2 years I finally found a cute, plush swan rocker for the girls to enjoy.I will put it near the swan tree next Pinkmas.
 Here are Lola and Poppy-Marie testing their new rocker.
I thought this swan was cute and not too weird looking.
 I added some pearls for the swan Princess. 
 We haven't named her yet. Lola really likes it she sat in it a long time,
They will be so spoiled.. First their pink car at Pinkmas and now a swan rocker!!
I saw the swan on an instagram post and hurried out to look for  it. The price was great too.
Have a Pink Day!

Beginning to look like Valentine's Day!

I'm sure by now you know I love Valentine's Day too!

Of course, it is another pink holiday in our home. I've been adding touches of pink/blush around the house. 
A few years ago I upcycled old Valentine candy boxes. 
Added flowers, glitter painted them etc so fun to do and not hard at all and I reuse them every year. 

Have a Pink day!

Armand and Poppy-Marie

Well you've seen a previous photo of Snowflake Marie Mouser under the tree and her is little Armand Louis our little 5 pound silver shaded Persian under the tree the first day I set it up.
 He ran right to it and wrapped himself in tulle and fell asleep!
Poppy didn't really bother the tree either just walked around and looked at the packages. 
It was her first Pinkmas! She is 9 months old.
Every year I am amazed that all our cats and dogs seem to  really enjoy the tree and not play with the ornaments or the packages.
 They just sit and look at the lights and feel cozy.
We are lucky. I do have to put their wrapped gifts up high they know tissue paper wrapping means a gift for them!
Soon the trees will be taken down and they, and I , have another year to wait and to plan changes and embellishments.
Have a Pink day!

We gotta pink roll

I couldn't help myself saw this pink car at Target and ordered it for the babies. So far Poppy-Marie and Armand(Persian cat) are the two that are most interested in it.
The lights light up and it plays music! 
However,it has to be pushed or pulled no remote! 
Good exercise for us.
What pet doesn't want their own wheels? 
Have a Pink day!

My new crest

It was ready before Pinkmas but not early enough to use it this year. I may do gift tags with it and perhaps on wrapping paper, place cards still thinking ahead.
Everything on it is something I love. Only thing I wish I had added was a Persian cat.  My peonies and swana and vintage hand fans, rococo frame and ribbon all things that are a part of my life. 'Looking forward to a New Year, more travel, more time with friends.
Have a Pink day!
