Personal Reflections: Pale pink mood

When you walk into our home,

little pale pink touches don’t

jump out at you; they whisper.

The Laduree box with macarons is

from my sis, brought home recently from Paris,

and pink stripey straws…I mean.

You are probably so tired of seeing

the quiet European pink of ‘dead’

pointe shoes on this blog, but I

could view images of them all day.

Some new threads for me!

The larger spools were purchased

at Fanciful Designs, and the littles

are from Fahrenheit Vintage,

(a wondrous shop offering excellent

customer service on etsy) offering

silk thread, lace, ribbon, and more lovely.

I plan to use the vintage pink Belding Corticelli

pure silk twist for creating jewelry/art pieces.

Find similar silk thread at Fahrenheit Vintage here.

Sugar and Spice Washi Tape Trio

I love my pale pink striped kitty

hanging out with these pink washi tapes

from Le Paper Cafe on etsy: offering

washi, packing, and decor tapes.

How much do we like the sound of

‘little paperlings?’


So feminine and fabulous.

Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook)

I could not resist this pale pink

book of love poems from bhldn

or the empty egg I picked up

on the beach the other day in La Jolla.

Did I tell you I took a little trip to

San Diego just 10 days after my

surgery and reconstruction?

This was maybe my favorite place

we visited…Old Point Loma lighthouse.

Wearing pale pink.

I loved watching the seals sunbathe at La Jolla.

Love Poems (New Directions Paperbook)

Back to pink!

These are the scents my husband and I

bought in Paris at Diptyque.

Yes, yes, you can buy them at Nordstrom

online, but we loved finding them at the

original Diptyque on Saint Germain.

I would love to discover the source of the pale

blush pink tissue Bhldn uses and make

giant pom poms in this gorgeous hue.

Have your people call my people (that’s moi)

if you happen to know.

And I could continue to post more pink,

but this is where we must part because

I am still a bit fragile as the healing

continues and I build up strength again.

Any pink objects above capture your heart?

Peace to you right where you are.

    I love pink and the paler the better. These pictures are dreamy..I could see them in a book Michele. You look so good on the beach, and how fantastic that you were able to travel just 10 days later..that speaks to the fight and positive energy that you have..good for you! Hope you have a nice relaxing Sunday and that you on the mend.
    Sending a hug!

    I love blush pink but it sure is difficult to find fabrics in that hue. I gave up when redoing my formal living room wanted that shade in pillow fabrics even went to the designer only textile showrooms. If anyone knows of blush pink solid fabrics email me please.
    I hope you feel 100% soon.

    So happy that you were able to take your trip. You have done so well.
    I love pale pink, and I am dying over the thread.

    All of it, but definitely the pink tissue paper! Was thinking about you today and wondering how you're really truly doing…

    Soft pink is one of my all time favorite shades. Just a blush, not a shout. I've got some paint tubes stored in a LadurĂ©e box about that same color – and my toes are just a shade darker than those ballet slippers. Such a soothing, restful color. I'm so glad you got to recuperate in lovely San Diego – beauty is good for the soul. Hang in there, friend. Things take time. Sending warm pink thoughts your way! XOXO

    I'm a pink gal too. And these are such beautiful photos but the best one is you on the beach. That's how you looked ten days after surgery? Amazing. And there's nothing more healing for your spirit than being next to the sounds of the ocean…I'm so glad you went to San Diego.
