pink makes me happy too! your "pops" around your house are just darling. my (ex) husband was kind enough to let me paint, not only one, but two of our living rooms a beautiful bubble gum pink! (sounds awful, but it was soooo awesome ... LOVED the color and loved those rooms every single day!) xoxo

Pink is such a fun color. You are just like my friend in Ontario who LOVES PINK...and her hubby is totally ok with it.
ME...not much of it in my house of deer horn antler chandeliers...(if you get my drift)

Blondie's Journal said...

Pink has always been my favorite color and I have muted shades of it in my living room which is sort of shabby chic. I'm lucky, too, that hubby seems to have adjusted to it!

Wonderful post!
