Seeing Pink

Pink is not usually in my colour vocabulary but how could I not just love this .

A beautiful PINK colistiman was on the table. DH had picked it up at the hardware while shopping for a bolt to mend his golf cart. Such a thoughtful suprise to find when I returned from a day of stitching.

Knitted flowers of pink

Hand spun pink dyed with conchinoal and the lighter shades were yellows overdyed with conchional. My GS described it as" a beanie for she cup of tea"

A vintage enamel ware candlestick.  The colour PINK is unusual.

More pink , this time part of a collection of fabric given to me by my DD#1for Christmas.

The collection of all things pink is a reflection of some things that interest me.  I guess pink is part of my life...... just not my first go to colour.
Do you have favorite always there colours in your life?

Have a good week Terry

What a wonderful eclectic mix of pink things. It was so thoughtful of DH to pick that beautiful cyclamen for you. The tea cosy is so fun with it's knotty flowers! I'm not sure what my go to colour is. I seem to have all sorts of colourful things everywhere.
