Fun Friday -- Pink

What can you get to know about someone by a color? Recently, I posted on Facebook and asked people to choose a color. With St. Patrick's Day being this week, or because it is my favorite color, did people choose green? No. The color most commonly chosen was pink, so I went around the house and took pictures of things that are some shade of pink. Finding things pink was not easy, though, because, frankly, I am not a fan of pink. Still, I made the effort, and here are some things in my life that are pink.

This is a picture frame that our sweet Boy made for us for Valentine's Day. He is so precious and giving and loving. How could we not adore that beautiful face?
Johnson's Baby Lotion. Since having Boy, this is usually in the house, and everyone uses it.

Pasta. Mmmm. This box happens to have pink on it because a portion of the proceeds was to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation.
A well-worn pair of pink, plaid sneakers.

Chunky Bible. I also have a blue one, a green one, and an orange one. They are fun and like a big block. Now, that's Chunky!
What home does not need duct tape?

Grams' sweater. Grams died on 9/13/2004, and even though I am not a fan of pink, I kept this sweater of hers. It is getting old and may not fit perfectly, but I wear it and think of her when I do.
Hats. I have lots of hats, dozens of them. I like a hat on my head or a flower in my hair. No, I do not have any pink flowers. I will say, though, that more people should wear hats!

There you have it. Some things "pink" from my life. Whew, that was not so easy. I had to go searching. Who knew that I so much that is pink when I do not even like pink?

If you are wondering why we have pink, of all colors, duct tape, it is because it is left over from the G.A.L.s Wearing Hats duct tape purse party. Here are two purses that I made.

Yes, those are more things pink, but who knows what ever happened to them? Not me.

What about you? Are you a fan of pink? What do you have in your life that is pink? All that I think that I have left to say now is...YOUR TURN!


  1. I am a huge fan of Pink. I am just attracted to shades of pink and red. No idea why. I can tell you there is some pink or red in my life most days. Alot of my clothing is pink. I tend to wear shades of pink makeup and choose accessories and jewelry with pink. There is also pink accents in many of the decor related items in my home. I did break down a few years back and remove the pink from my walls and floors.

  2. daughter's room is pink as is most of her wardrobe. We both have pink furry robes...and of course, the little Nip Napper has the best pink toes :-)

  3. I am currently wearing my fav. pink t-shirt, my slippers are pink (the ones I wear when no one is over- yes I have "company slippers" for when people are here. It's rediculous I know.) My favorite color combo is brown with pink accents. :) Although really yellow is my favorite color. What do you have yellow??

  4. Kathy, I learned something about you that I did not know. Hehe.

    Lisa, that is so cute. Pink toes.

    Yellow, eh, Jennyfer? Is that a challenge? Maybe next week's fun Friday.... Hehe.

  5. I'm SO not a "pink" fan. My favorite color is purple! Honestly, I'd have to say that the most stuff around my house that is actually pink would probably have to be my daughters! Everything from stuffed animals and dolls, and even a pink doll house in her room! Yep, she's a pink-loving-girl. LOL And SUCH a little girlie girl! Love it!
