Pinking the Tree



What's a Christmas tree without a little pink? Bare I tell you, BARE.

So of course I have to sneak it in here and there...
The other day Bebe kept hollering "PUFFED RICE!" PUFFED RICE!" And I'm like whaaaaat? We had just come home from the grocery store and she's hollering puffed rice. I'm thinking....I didn't buy any puffed rice.... what....

Then she points and I see she is gesturing to a butterfly. (The ornament above is a butterfly.)

OHHHHHH! BUTTERFLIES! Yes! Butterflies, sweetie!

She's so cute. But let's get back to the pink stuff...


Pink ballet slipper ornament from my step daughter last year.... I seriously must have about 3 or 4 different pairs of these ornaments but I love each and every one of them.




This pink tutu "costume" is one of my absolute favs. Dear Hubby found it for me at a Christmas shop along the boardwalk in New Jersey. Came with its own little hanger!


And this cheery sign I purchased on ebay about 5 or 6 years ago. I have a hard time mixing it into my living room decor (I actually don't have too much pink in there) so this year it is going to find a new holiday home in Bebe's room, it is loaded with pink!



And I also used my pink tree skirt this year. It is a Martha Stewart with a vintage look. Perfect!

I've joined up with linky parties for Show and Tell Friday and Pink Saturday. Won't you stop by and check out the other festive holiday posts?
For Pink Saturday we were asked to join a theme. Today's is favorite holiday music. I'm such an old sap I love listening to the oldies but goodies. "I'll be Home For Christmas" gets me every time. On the newer side I like "O Holy Night" by Martina McBride.

You and your pink :) But since I do shades of rose - I guess I've no room to talk. Good job! Love that first sparkly thing...

Beautiful pink for your tree. I agree pink is a must. I love the ballet ornaments. Did you take ballet when you were young? I love the ballet. Especially on your pretty tree. The butterfly is so pretty and your story was so cute.

Wishing you Merry Christmas blessings.
Hugs, Jeanne
