My Pink and Green Friday

Meg over at Lucchese to Louis Vuitton suggested a "pink and green" themed Friday blog post last Friday, so I decided to give it a go! I quickly discovered that although I love pink and green and have a fair amount in each color separately, I have very little "pink and green" together! But I wandered around and was able to snap some things from around my house.

First up is my green camo and pink Wrangler baseball cap.

Something pink and my bathroom! Two of my favorite perfumes, by Sarah Jessica Parker. The pink one, Lovely, is very subtle and great for someone who doesn't like really strong scents. True story, I walked by a woman in Target once and she said, "Excuse me, what perfume are you wearing, it smells just lovely." I laughed and said, "It is Lovely, by Sarah Jessica Parker!" The green one on the right, Covet, is a little stronger.

My great-great grandmother passed away a couple of years ago and all of the great-granddaughters got something of hers. I got this ceramic teapot. I am not sure who made it, but I am pretty sure that either my grandma or my g-grandmother did, as they did a lot of ceramics. Maybe Dusty Devoe knows? It is actually a flat teapot with a hole in the back, it is designed to be decorative rather than functional and hangs on a wall. It is hollow, and cute to put little wildflowers in.

I used to have quite the collection of pink floral shabby chic style plates of all sizes. I have most of them packed away now, as it seems I never host anything and bring them out anymore. I have also used this one as a soap dish.

Another one of my shabby chic treasures, a little sugar pot.

A friend gave this "piggy bank" to me for Christmas a few years ago.

Any quarter that ends up in my coin purse, gets tossed in here. Eventually I roll around $20-40 in quarters.

When I first started saving up for a horse, I used this coin collection method as one horse-crazed attempt to put extra money into the "horse account" I started. So I suppose, it should really look like this:

Not sure if "green halter and pink scab" works for this theme, but hey- it's my post!

See you tomorrow, Scabhead!


  1. Great idea. I might have to steal this one this weekend! Have fun this weekend w/your scabby horse. I hope his knot is better.

  2. Neat pictures of pinks and greens. Hope My Boy's scab is all better soon. Oh, I have to tell you that my neighbors Appaloosa mare's registered name is "Mystery's My Girl" barn name is Lacy. So, now I know a My Boy and a My Girl! LOL

  3. What a cool idea! Maybe I'll have to play around with some colour themes of my own. In all my spare time... lol. Let us know how Your Boy's scab is doing after your visits this weekend!

  4. Just couldn't resist the last one, could you??? Gross...and funny.

  5. I'll use pink and green highlighters on everything at work today in honor of the theme!

  6. What a fun post! I will have to look at my pink and green things!xoxo
