Married to the Empire

Friday, May 29, 2009


In case you weren't aware, pink is my favorite color. But I live in a house full of boys. It doesn't matter that 2 of those 3 boys are cats; the human boy says no pink as a major influence around the house. For some nutty reason, he doesn't much like it!

I have to express my girly pinkness in little ways around the house.

Pink plate in the kitchen with a depiction of Aesop's fable "The Fox and the Lion." Pink + literature + decor = winning combination! I still need to get a plate stand for it:

Pink goblet--because Dr. Pepper just tastes better in a pink glass:

Pink iPod case:

Pink bowl my MIL gave me last weekend. I haven't decided for sure how I'm going to use it, but I'm thinking of putting it in the guest bathroom with some soaps in it:

Finally, my pink purse:

I like you theme, especially because it is so subtle with little touches of pink sprinkled throughout. Instead of, say, pinking the entire house.

I have a similar plate, but I use it for eating when company comes. Is that supposed to be decoration? Am I committing some decorating fauxpas by eating from that?

Anne, they're meant for eating off of. I'm just using mine for decor. I'd love to get more for meals, but I already have 3 sets of dishes, so I really can't justify it. So, I just bought one for display because I like it.

Love the Spode plate! I have their "Zoological" collection - the camel, the kangaroos, and the zebra are hanging on the wall, and I eat off the tiger, the rhino and the ostrich. I'm a sucker for dishes.
I love all your pink - glad you're able to incorporate it somehow!

I just love pink, such a happy color! Favorite shade of pink you have -- my vote is on the iPod. :)
