I admit it, I love pink, but with a husband weary of a house full of estrogen (We have 2 girls.) I do try to reign it in – MOST of the time. But today we’re getting ready for Valentine’s Day, so Mr. CH, today might be a good day for you to take off, you know, go hunting, or fishing or spitting, or whatever you male-people do to have fun.
I am on a quest for pink. I have some friends coming over for lunch, and I want them to feel special.
I also use these at Christmas-time on our Christmas tree, but they can also be used for Valentine’s Day. When creating Christmas decorations, I try to make things that could be used other times of the year. You can call it laziness or cheapness, but I call it SMART.
I was on the lookout for all things pink, but I liked the contrast with the green. Pink always look better with a little green.
Here’s a Christmas ornament I bought on clearance after Christmas.
It’s a little silver frame that can be filled with a photo and hung on a Christmas tree. I pulled out some toile paper and cut out the figure of a girl, then put that in the frame. I also changed out the forest green ribbon, for some soft pink ribbon.
I added as much pink sweets as I could find. Good and Plenty candy is so pink and they taste better than I remembered. I also found pink, white and red M and M’s. I put these candies in antique inherited lidded preserve jars. It’s awfully hard for me to resist grabbbing a few as I walk by during the day.
Coming up next – Valentine’s Day cookies.
