My First Pink Saturday

Beverly, at How Sweet The Sound has been hosting Pink Saturdays on her blog for quite awhile now, and I've always felt bad I never participated in it, as I love Beverly's blog.

Honestly, pink has never been my favorite my color, as I'm more of a primary color admirer of blues, greens, and reds. I was looking through my photo files this week, however, and I realized I have some lovely photos with the color pink that I could share. So this is my very first Pink Saturday post! Thanks for the encouragement, Beverly.

Please make sure to drop by Beverly's blog to see a large and growing list of participating Pink Saturday blogs!


First photo is a lovely wedding in which my daughter was a bridesmaid. She is the tallest girl on the right, and the photo was taken at the lake in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, NY last summer. I loved their pink bridesmaids dresses!




Next, is a funny photo of someone wearing a squid costume in the famous Mermaid Parade held each summer on solstice day along Mermaid Ave in Coney Island Brooklyn, NY. Click on the link to see more photos in my blog post about it!



A beautiful pink Montreal rose in the Denver Botanical Garden, in Denver, Colorado. I visited with my daughter-in-law a couple summers ago, as that is where she and my son live. It is a wonderful place to visit!


A pink door in Dublin, Ireland! We've visited Ireland a few times, and if you are interested to see my many posts about that beautiful country, click on the link.

Some more beautiful pink roses in a bouquet given to me on my last birthday. They smelled so divine!

My sweet cat Bo, who has pink ears and a pink nose, and yes, two different colored eyes!

Some pretty pink hats that were on display in a tea shop in San Diego where I visited recently, and met two wonderful bloggers! Click on the link to see more about that fantastic day.

My buddy Bo again, relaxing on two teddy bears left behind by my daughter in her former bedroom. My daughter's room was all pink when she was a little girl, and then she switched to the color lavender when she was a teenager. I just painted the now converted guest room a cool mint green, but don't have the heart to give the teddies away just yet, as Bo loves to sleep near them!
This was fun, and I'm going to begin looking for more PINK in my life to join in of future Pink Saturdays!
Off to read your blog ... thanks for looking at mine!

How nice to see you Pat at this event! Lovely pink post, and love that the photo of bridesmaid. Have a happy pink Saturday.
Ohh...yes, baby girl is the cutest one in your following post. I did not suppose if a pumpkin dress would fit so perfectly for a baby;)

Hugs & Happy Autumn Wishes

Baby Vagabond said...

First let me say.....BO IS ADORABLE!!! I would scoop him up for a cuddle anytime :-)

And, my very favorite pinks are the ones in your bouquet. I love the toned down, dusky pinks the best. Although, that pink door has me thinking ;-0

((hugs)) Rosie

Hey Pat,
Welcome to pink sat. Great pink sat. post.

You own files are a great place to start in looking for pink...it gives you a chance to post a picture and write about an experience you've had.

Play again next week! Bet there's lots of pink in NYC! Soon you'll be looking for it everywhere!

Hi Pat...Happy Pink Saturday! :)

Beverly said...

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Pat.

Your daughter is just beautiful, and I love those bridesmaid gowns.

I love all of your pink today, and it is surprising how many places you see if once you begin to notice.

steviewren said...

Your daughter looked gorgeous in her pink bridesmaid dress. I thought my daughter's wedding was the prettiest I had ever seen, but these girls are lovely in their pink too. Bo the cat is awfully pretty too, shouldn't he be called handsome though?

It looks like you have more pink in your life than you thought.

Vee ~ A Haven for Vee said...

Well now, you really do have wonderful photos featuring pink. Your daughter is a vision in pink and Bo is too adorable.

Melanie said...

Hia Pat- your daughter is so beautiful and elegant! Yes love those pink dresses. I do love most ballgowny things but oh my that red dress in "Gone with the Wind" and the silver one from "The King and I". :-)

I wouldn't've been caught dead in sissy pink as a tom boy kid but right this second I have pink shoes and a pink floral shirt on with my linen dress. I think our tastes evolve.

Dawn said...

Welcome to your first pink saturday! All your photos are wonderful and aren't cat great! How much attention does Bo get with two different color eyes? Lots!!!

Rhonda said...

Pat,
You did good--lots of lovely pink pictures. Your daughter is stunning and love your cat--eyes are very interesting.

dana said...

WELCOME!

You managed to find some terrific Pink Shares, Pat!!

I loved all of your photos and their little stories. Your daughter is just beautiful in that bridal party photo---I adore that sweet Bo of yours!!!

Your pink door from Ireland reminded me that I wanted to tell you about a book my friend's daughter just put together. My friend and her husband recently took all of their kids (4) and one son-in-law to Ireland. One of the girls took photos of the trip from start to finish (a gal after your own heart!), then put together a book to give to her parents (she ordered it on-line) that showed their trip via her photos and descriptive text. I know it had to have been expensive, but the daughter was so appreciative of the trip her parents gave to the family.

Virginia said...

All your pictures are wonderful.
Your daughter is just beautiful, and BO is adorable!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Blessings, Virginia

Welcome to pink Saturday, love that pink door! Now if I could only convince my husband to do the same with ours...what are the odds.

Kindredly, Lynne Laura

Judy said...

Well, now you have inspired me! I had to laugh when I read your excuse for not participating sooner...you aren't really a pink girl. My sentiments exactly! But like you, I have many beautiful 'pink' photos...so maybe one of these Saturdays I'll join in the fun!

Your daughter looks just lovely in pink! You found great pink pic's.

Katie said...

Well you could have fooled me, you sure seem like a pink girl! Fab post, I really loved the wedding pic! Happy First Pink Saturday! Pink is everywhere so you have no excuse not to keep doing the PS posts! Welcome!

LOUISE said...

Like the pink post. Your daughter, the bride and bridesmaids all look very beautiful, the photograph is just lovely. Is it a coincidence, or did you name your dear cat after David Bo-wie, he has different coloured eyes too. x

Ah....what will happen to the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island {sniff}? I am so sad to see the demise of Coney Island's boardwalk.

I love your (beautiful) daughter's fabulous pink wedding dress. Looks like she was in a stellar wedding...that park is a lovely place for a wedding!

Pat, thank you for stopping by my blog and for your congratulations! A good excuse for me come by to look at your pretty in pink again! Lovely still. The pink door is magical, isn't it?
It's going to rain in central FL this evening, and perhaps for a little while tomorrow but then the sunshine should shine through to weekend for you. And no hurricanes in sight! Where will you be visiting?

Beverly said...
