I've been inspired by pink for a long time now and I'm sure the first things that inspired me were ballerina costumes and toe shoes. But now that I'm a Mommy I'm often inspired by my little sweetpea Bebe's toys and room decor.
But I can't always be a Mommy, I need inspiration from other things. Which is why I love to go antiquing.
Back in 1992 I was inspired to start collecting pastel colored dinnerware called LuRay and really haven't stopped. Two to three years earlier I was in college and browsing a Salvation Army looking for something different for my everyday dishes. After seeing a stack of PINK dishes I was convinced this was it for me. It spurred me on to go to the library to research what type of dishes they were. I don't know what the name was stamped on the bottom, but that day I found a pretty set in a book about vintage dinnerware. Now, 19 years later I see this LuRay Pastels collection in my kitchen cabinets and it cheers me, especially in the winter months.
What's your pink inspiration?
Today I'll be linking up with PINK SATURDAY over on Beverly's blog, How Sweet the Sound. (I'm currently having problems clicking on links and uploading but hopefully this problem will be resolved soon. We are still trying to finish the computer debacle that happened on Christmas Day. All this to just say I can't upload the Pink Saturday logo right now.)
