Pink Saturday 11/27/2010

Once again it's Pink Saturday and the PS group wants to share lovely pink things with you. So please visit with Beverly of How Sweet The Sound and look at all the other participants by clicking on the logo below. Thank you!


I love decorating magazines—just looking through them brings happiness to this ol' brain. It truly does! And I get such good ideas just looking at them. It doesn't have to be the exact same thing, but something in the photo may trigger my thought processes for something else. That happens all the time.

That little basket hanging on the wall under the stairs with the dried branches in it gave me the idea to put flowers in just about anything I can hang or attach to a wall. I have them all over my house.

I am not a huge fan of sunflowers, but they look elegant in those red and green buckets and the green and red plaid pillow. This photo just makes you feel good.

Pink and red and flowers and checks, some of my favorite combinations.

Another beautiful combination of yellow and blue and a scroll arm sofa with plush cushions for sitting.

The white and rose harlequin carpet is what first drew my attention to this room along with the pink chairs and that fabulous mirror.

Same home but the bedroom. Another fabulous mirror. I'd take that one in a heartbeat.

Along with this beautiful bed and its beautiful sheets and covers.

Formal style has always been a love of mine, but it doesn't suit this home of ours. I love it though, especially this little rendezvous area of the living room. Fringe on sofas is of particular interest to me. The sofa I have now I saw in the showroom with fringe on it, but when I went back to get it, they had an upholsterer take it off because the sofa wasn't selling! Idaho just doesn't get it yet! Ooooh, but I have to tell you it was truly gorgeous.


  1. Years and years ago my granny had a sofa with fringe on it. As a little girl I loved it. Still do. Lets face it, you and I are just way ahead of the masses! Happy Pink Saturday. Hey, I'm having a giveaway!

  2. Happy Pink Saturday Connie Sweetie...
    What a beautiful share this evening. I love, love, love these rooms. Oh I adore the harlequin rug and the pink chairs and mirror. That room had me at "Harlequin". Love, love, love it. Can I please have that room?

    Oh you have a beautiful share today. I too, love using baskets for everything, anything, and lots of things. They are so versatile. I will be getting mine down from the attic soon to start filling them for the holidays.

    Hope you are feeling better sweet friend. I am so happy to see you sharing again. Many, many hugs and SO much love, Sherry

  9. Hello sweetie pie! I adore magazines they are so fun to cruise around in, my romantic country magazines have the pages falling out they are so well loved! Happy Pink Saturday!

  10. These are all gorgeous rooms. I love the fat sofas and the floral prints. Ethan Allan always creates soft furnishings in such beautiful and lush fabrics. I could move into any of these rooms.

    Happy Pink Saturday,


  11. OMGosh...every room you show is so elegant.
    Thanks for sharing.

  12. G'day Connie ~ I do hope this finds you feeling even better.

  13. Hi Connie,

    I just love getting inspired from my favorite magazines. Have a happy Pink Saturday!


  14. Hi Connie, I like that brushed fringe look too on the sofa. I thought about doing that when I had slipcovers made for the family room but it added a bunch of money to the total cost and I nixed it. Maybe next time which is coming up soon because I had those slipcovers made 10 years ago. Hope you are doing better and I wish you a happy Pink Saturday.

  15. Hi Connie

    I love these photos. Soo dreamy...

    Enjoy the season!

  19. It was so great to hear from you I am thinking you are continuing to improve. I love the formal look also, but like you my house just does not lend it's self to formal. Loved the pictures


  20. Oh Connie, your Little Miss Caroline is as cute as they come! She's absolutely beautiful! And I noticed she has the Famous Sophie toy. My two granddaughters have Sophie and they love her! We have another Grandaughter on the way and she will also have to have a Sophie! Hope you are feeling better!

  22. Happy Pink Saturday, dear Connie. I hope you are improving and feeling better. I have you in my prayers.

    Girl, all of these pictures are gorgeous. The harlequin rug makes my heart go pitter-pat.

  23. I really miss looking in decorating magazines! I'm starting to get back into it a little bit now that Bebe is older. My favorite is the sleigh bed with the pink accessories!!!!
