Blush and Bashful

I don't know about you, but I've never been a huge fan of pink...until recently. Ever since Julia Roberts declared blush and bashful her "signature colors" in Steel Magnolias, the color has reminded me of Pepto. No thanks! Lately, however, I've noticed that I'm warming to it slightly - even using pale pink peonies in my wedding. While I don't think I'll be swapping my favorite black tee for a rose-colored blouse any time soon, I still found the photo of the closet above rather beautiful. I wonder if the owner's house looks anything like this?

Yeah, I felt the same way about pink until a few years ago when I really started to get into Victoria's Secret. It may just be underwear and pajamas, but I do own quite a bit of pink now :)

I never used to like pink either, but have to admit that there are certain tones of it that I swoon over now :)

And I'm with you there too. I shunned pink for years, dispatching it all disdainfully on the Barbie boat, but now I'm compensating for my vehemence with my delight in various shades of rose and chalk pink. Still no neon, definitely. That closet looks just right for me!

This is such a pretty collage. Ya I don't dress in pink but pink accents isn't that bad... maybe even hot pink!
