I was ridiculed for considering writing about love, and for relating it to one of my very favorite palette’s – PINK. Ridiculed until I erased all reference to it. How inconsiderate of me to write about a subject, a feeling that other’s might not have …. but while the aggrieved party isn’t paying any attention, I am in fact going to write about it. Who doesn’t love the innocent hue that is pale pink, a simple heart, a cheerful pouf, a garland that hangs from an otherwise dull cabinet or lonely hearth. Who could possibly object to loving things that are lovely?

Sometimes I even love things that are not lovely. I call them “good ugly”, but today’s post is about the truly pretty. It’s about hearts and flowers in the form of furnishings and fabrics that make me happy, and if love is worth its salt – it will make you happy.
It often starts by shopping in the baby section, it sometimes makes it way into kids. By Preteen it’s too cool to be represented. It makes an appearance now and again in the world of adult decor, but is often relegated to a single small space – a powder room, a guest bed, a walk in closet where one dresses. Why when the color makes me so happy should it be delivered in such small doses?
Well, it’s Valentine’s Day – almost – so I am going to celebrate this warm in the cheeks hue as if I were a kid again. Here are some of my happiest petal pink, and blushy brights for you to view.
