A dash of pink

As Valentine's day draws near, I can't help but get excited about adding a (tiny) dash of pink into our home.  I've been enjoying this time indoors (during our blizzard week) to make some Valentine creations.  I'll post those later, but in the meantime here are some other peeks of pink. 

I leaned this scrapbook paper against the wall as I was crafting, and liked this impromptu combination:

Here is a peek into my daughter's bedroom, where pink is a welcome color.  These photos were taken last summer as the room was being redecorated.  I had fun sewing all the pillows, including these little hearts and the embroidered 'A'.  I try to personalize her bedroom, as well as my son's, whenever I can.  Someday I'll share those rooms in a post (when they're tidied up).

"Two hearts....beat as one..." (love that U2 song!):

Here's a pretty slipper I got from, and dressed up with a paper crown rosette.  She's our Queen, after all!

Enjoy your weekends!  I'm linking to Beverly's Pink Saturday.

I loved all the pinks you chose today. The shell was my favorite.

Lots of very pretty pinks! I really love the fabric you used on your wee pink hearts. I'm also a U2 fan! Happy PS!
