Another new home for My Place & Yours meme

The new theme for this week's meme, which is now being hosted by Danielle at Hello Owl, is PINK!
"How does pink fit into your life? Do you love it or hate it? I'd love to hear your side of the story..." says Danielle.
I almost wasn't going to do this one coz I'm definitely not your typical pink person! But figuring I should try to enter into the spirit of it, as I've done since I began this meme, I took a little tour of the dwelling and did actually find a few pink things.
As they are usually scattered throughout the house, I've put them all together to make a collection of pink just for the photo.

The wonderful brass bottomed/pink shaded lamp was a gift from one of my sisters-in-law and funnily enough I hadn't realised it was even in the pic until I put it up on the blog!! lol. The beautiful watercolour with the pink mounting board surround, was painted by and gifted to me by my other sister-in-law. Don't I have some lovely SILs?
Then there is a pink pillow case and a pink liquid soap container that clashes mightily with my bathroom colour scheme(if you could call it that), but that I bought from an op shop for only 50c cos I wanted a pottery/ceramic one instead of the plastic one I did have!
THEN I realised that I have two very important things here that have pink as a big part of them.
I simply couldn't forget these two beautiful babies below now could I? This pink is something that I do love the colour of!! :)

If you need a pink fix, pop over to Danielle's blog and visit any or all of the other blogs that have joined in the fun!

Slow buds the pink dawn like a rose from out night's gray and cloudy sheath; Softly and still it grows and grows, petal by petal, leaf by leaf.

  1. Love those pretty pictures up there on the wall. As for me, way too much pink around here to even attempt to choose from!

  2. My favorites are the kittys.
    When I first started to read your post, I thought surely you wouldn't have any pink.

  3. Your babies have a habit of sneaking on to your Blog. Sweet things that they are.

  4. Glad to see your kittys haven't gone 'over the top' in joining in the pink meme (lol), but they do look cute! Jenny

  5. My favourite 'pink bits' in your blog are the last two pictures!!!

  6. Pretty pink puss paws...

  7. oh look at those little pink pads and noses! so sweet, perfect baby pink colour

  8. I have to say I don't mind pink, but only cause I have to live with it these days! Those pink paws and ears are just lovely.


Thanks so much for leaving a comment. I read every one of them, and will either respond with a return email or leave a comment here or at your blog, if you have one.
