My Place and Yours-Pink

First she wanted a photo of me and now I have to find pink!!! Danielle over at Hello Owl certainly knows the hard ones for me. I had a wander around and found this.....
This is my Christmas present from my Mum. A very sweet Bear dressed in Pink. So not me but she thought I would like it. Actually it isn't that bad sitting where it does.
My eldest son gave me this throw for christmas. I must admit I steered him towards it. It's not generally something I would choose but something about it appealed to me. As you can see the bear does look right at home here.
That's it I thought, what else could I possibly have as I'm really not one to dress in or decorate with Pink.

Where this come from or why it is sitting on a shelf in the dining room is beyond me...........
Mum gave me this when she was having a clean out and it now lives in my kitchen. Really doesn't suit the colour scheme but does blend in with all the other stuff I have in there.
I trotted up the back yard to my sewing room 'cause I remembered that the matching Bread Bin lived up there.
So while I was up there I rummaged around and found Pink Vintage cottons, Ric Rac, buttons, pipberries, fabric, a Doiley and some Vintage bias binding.
Really I haven't done too badly with the Pink Theme at all.
Thanks Danielle.

I'm a great fan of pink, so I love everything there, but I have to say those canisters are a bit of a favourite!

Love the threads, buttons and ricrac! Those old cotton reels are lovely too. I'm not a fan of pink either and struggled to meet this week's theme.
