Lady in Pink

Perhaps this would not make a great hit song, but it does make a lovely spring colour.

My Mom’s favourite colour was pink. Growing up, we had pink roses on the living room drapes, a pink gingham kitchen, with pink accessories (very popular in the 50s and 60s, I still have her pink hand mixer).

Her bedroom was pink. She had several pink dresses, one was pale pink lace and another one of her dresses matched the living room curtains! Reminds me of the Sound of Music, only my mom didn’t make her dress out of the curtains, like Maria Von Trapp did. And this was a few years before the movie (Sound of Music) was playing in the theaters.

This Mother’s Day weekend, I enjoyed a lovely stroll along the Grand River, a great place for dreaming and remembering my dear mom! I miss her …

Grand River

My dusty pink top is from Sears and I bought the beige lace top at Sirens a couple of weeks ago.

My french manicure is like new, it should last a few weeks. I have four of these button necklaces: natural (as shown), dusty rose, turquoise and multicoloured.

My skinny jeans from American Eagle are pale pink and mauve roses on a cream background.

    A walk along the Grand River…it has all the taste of America for me! A lovely place where you can quietly think of your dear mother…and remember how you share with her the same love for pink.
    Your dusty pink top goes perfect with the lace top, and the button necklace is very inspiring !
    I am sure you had a sweet day!

      Thank you my lovely friend! And you are so right, it was a sweet day! I imagine a trip to Italy: hiking in the hills of Tuscany, strolling through cities like Florence and sailing through the canals of Venice in a gondola. Only in my dreams! You have a beautiful country, Dan! You’ve inspired me with more than fashion and I am enjoying looking up places in Italy – just marvelous!!

      Have a sweet day!

      Thank you Bob! This is the Blair Trail near Fountain Street. If I can’t live by the river, at least I can go for walks by the river 🙂 Happy trails to you too!
