In The Pink



When I got married, Christmas had to be red and green. Not gold or silver . And none of that burgundy that the victorian decorators like. Christmas red and green. Somewhere, somehow, every so slowly , I stepped off the Polar Express . First, I allowed burgundy....went better with the decor , I told myself. Then some gold and silver for sparkle...silver bells afterall! Now it's fullblown pink and aqua. You won't see green except for the tree . And Santa....well he's wearing a very fashionable... ok , girly...PINK! My family tolerates it. My extended family doesn't get it I'm sure. But I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas as many of you are. So here are some things I've been working on with a frenzy that suits the season. Which reminds me, when did a time of calm and quiet, silent nights, become a stampede equal to the running with the bulls?? Well, that's another post.

Well, I think you get the 'most pink decor' award with that santa ;-) Can't wait to see the whole shebang! I know I'm so excited to change over in the color scheme this year that I'll probably be one of those people on the tree lot the day after thanksgiving! :-)

Love your pink Santa, but when it comes to Christmas, I have to go with traditional red and green. I have too many "traditional" colored decorations to start over as much as I would like to. Thanks for visiting my blog. Will post my Giveaway on Sunday, so come back and take a look.

Hi, now this is exactly the sort of Christmas that we like at Lilly Cottage too, we like most things sparkly and pink and with roses, so Christmas gives a great excuse to go completely overboard!! I love love love your pink Christmas items, they would right at home at my place, this year we are doing the Marie Antoinette Christmas thing, you know, pink, aqua, feathers, sparkles and little birds, well that's how it looks in my head anyway!! Love your style, TTFN Linda Lilly Cottage.
