"Perfectly Pretty Pink Prints".......

Friday, April 3, 2009

I adore fabric!!....All kinds of fabric!.....and pretty "pink" prints may very well be among my very favorites!.....Whether it is a "large vintage floral" that happens to be softening a fabulous "mid-century lucite" chair,.... or beautiful "embroidered cottons" made into voluptuous patio pillows....I find them all so charming & utterly endearing!.......

When strolling through quilting shops & local fabric stores, it is most likely these "pink florals" that catch my eye!....In my own home, I have very little pink,... but when it comes to making a quilt or new Spring top, it is the "pretty pink prints" that I find myself continually being partial to?...Why is that?....They are certainly not "sophisticated" or terribly "in vogue", but is doesn't seem to matter. In my mind, it is the "humble sweetness" of these fabrics, that make them so enchanting.....
So today for this "Pink Saturday", hosted by Beverly at "How Sweet The Sound".....I pay tribute to "pretty pink prints"..Afterall, they really are quite "perfect"........Enjoy your weekend!......Heidi XO

While the Pottery Barn look seems to be the decorating rage right now, I still like the cottage look in the last photo, if that's an accurate term for it. The soft pinks and flowers always look so sweet and cheery to me.

Hi Heidi.....I am a fabric collector, too. I love the pretty, comfortable, romantic pinks and the look of Cottage no matter what the decorating rage of the moment!

HAPPY PINK SATURDAY!

I totally understand what you are saying about the pink family. My home has very little pink to be found, if any, but I do love working with it. Almost everything I design or create, is pink, Happy Pink Saturday and a wonderful post, Char
