I can’t believe another week has flown by, and we are so close to the end of the summer of 2009! I’m so glad, though, that even with the beautiful colors of autumn filling our blogs with decorating crafts and ideas, we can always celebrate PINK! Thanks to our lovely and gracious hostess, Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com for bringing us together in celebration of pink, a color that is year round, and always in style.
I’d like you to meet this sweet little Corolle doll. I was in a toy store in Sacramento about 20 years ago, looking for a gift for a friend’s daughter. When I saw this doll, I had to have her because she reminded me of my own daughter when she was little. None of my granddaughters play with dolls…they love stuffed animals, like Build-A-Bear, and Webkinz. They buy clothes for them, doll carriages, baby bottles and such, and play with them the way I played with my dolls when I was little. So this doll has been MY doll. Even though no one really plays with her, somehow she has lost one of the flowers in her bonnet, and her shoes and socks! I think they were “borrowed” for those furry babies!
I never did give her a name…any suggestions? I like Abby, and Dixie, and Belle. Somehow I know she’s a southern girl!
Oh, to have this thick head of hair again! I love the hat, with it’s pink flowers in the front and the pink polka dot bow in the back.

Here is another of the mini tea sets in my collection.

Living proof that summer is still here…geraniums on the deck…love this vibrant pink!

If only life could be like pink…It’s soft, romantic, feminine, calming, and well, just beautiful! To think that some people don’t like pink is unthinkable! That’s okay, we all have our favorites colors, but if yours is pink, be sure to click on that pretty pink lady to visit Beverly and other participants that have some lovely pinks to show today!
Have a wonderful week-end, everyone…be safe, have fun, and be sure to keep “living in the pink”!
