Still Feeling Pink!

Pin It Now!


So...yesterday for Valentine's Day, almost every woman at work came in with a red sweater or blouse and black pants!  I either never really noticed that the majority of women do this or maybe this is a new trend. This will never work for me....I don't own ANYTHING red!  Pink I love, red not so much!  


I could be wrong but it seems like you are either a PINK person or a RED person...am I wrong? Is it not that black and white? ha! 


I love pink! LOVE IT!! You probably already figured that out though...








I don't even decorate for Christmas with RED so it's not surprising that when I think of Valentine's Day I think of PINK, not RED!  I don't even like RED roses, I prefer pink ones!

I think the only thing that's been in my home that is red were these RED Velvet Cupcakes I made awhile back.  I actually think they would look more appetizing if they were pink though...

Are you a red person, or a pink person...or maybe both or neither? I'm just curious...

I like PINK but I love RED!

Donna said...

Cindy, I'm much more of a pink person as well. I don't decorate with red, and I really don't wear it either because I hate the way (some) reds run in the wash! haha ... Donna

Dianne said...

I have four girls..so I tend to buy pink things..check out the "pink" cupcakes I made this weekend http://inspiredhousewife.wordpress.com/

Enjoy your day!

Oh...I'm a pink person for sure. I have told boyfriends do not bother getting me red roses...I don't like them. I want pink or actually coral colored ones. I love the deep orangy pink ones like Tropicana.

I never wear red...ever... But I love to wear pink.

I am pink~Pink~PINK!!!!!
I do not dislike red, just prefer pink!
I do have a little "vintage red" in my cottage style kitchen, but most rooms in my home have PINK in them!

As a brunette, both colors work for me in clothing...red in the winter and pink all year long. I especially love wearing hot pink in the summer and always get a ton of compliments when I have something on in that shade.

In decorating, I much prefer pink in my own home. Although I always swoon over red in other people's homes, I tried it and found I got really tired of its intensity quickly. Pastels (of almost any color) soothe my soul.

I always tend to think of you as a blue lover so I'm always surprised to see how many beautiful pink things you have in your collection of pretties. If you ever get to the point where you're not feeling the pinks anymore, I'd love to take some of them off your hands! :)

September said...

Definitely pink, in fact, my husband teases me that he can do whole loads of laundry that are pink. Having said that, I will sometimes, in my artwork, pop the pink by tossing in a tiny bit of red. :) Just a tiny bit, because I adore Pink. :)

Heather said...

Hello! A friend introduced me to your beautiful blog a few days ago! It is so very lovely! I enjoy visiting and seeing what lovely things you have to show each day!
I hope you had a nice Valentine's Day. I am pink girl myself. I decorate for Christmas with soft pinks and creams...no red for me!
Have a great day!
Heather

Heidi said...

Totally pink, always. However, I do look good in red so I do wear it. It's difficult to decorate my house for Valentine's day because it pretty much is covered in pink roses and cupids all the time.

Hi Cindy, Beautiful pictures, no one takes pictures like you do! Pink! Bedoom is blush pink and it feels like summer all year long. Pink looks beautiful on you too! Hugs, Joyce

MavrikLane said...

My choice depends on how I'm using the color. For my wardrobe and home, I love deep, deep reds; however, I don't dislike
the color pink and think it is definitely more romantic and femine. I do love the way pink roses photograph...red on the other hand are too somber.

Victoria said...

I think I'm neither a red nor a pink person! I don't wear or decorate with either that much. I have a little bit of pink around but it's minimal. I veer more toward the wine/burgundy color. But when you do pink it's a different story, everything you do looks amazing!!!

I'm definitely PINK, but I haven't always been pink. When I was younger blue in any shade was THE colour. I don't wear or decorate with red much at all because it isn't a pastel colour. I love pastels :-)

bella said...

I wasen't a pink person until the last couple of years. Now I just love it! I have never been a red person.

Dear Cindy, I love pink, and you do pink so beautifully. xo, Janette

Fishtail Cottage said...

Beautiful photo's - i agree for valentines day i love the combo of both red & pink......

Caroline said...

Pink for me! Your photos are adorable!

Gayla said...

I am really more of a red person, but through blogging I have learned to love pinks... I never used to like it at all.... But with beautiful breaths of heaven like your blog, how could I resist?

One Cheap B*tch said...

Pink! I look horrible in red although I did have red hair at one time - more auburn. I have to agree: you are either pink or red. Not both!

Jeanine

The Vintage Farmhouse said...

Definitely pink! I don't think I have ever owned anything red in my entire life. Not even in clothing!!

Sunny simple life said...

Sweet post. I guess I am a red. I don't own much pink. I do have to say you have what I think is the most precious header in all of blogland.

Anonymous said...

Cindy, I love both red and pink! Just about any color pink and only those reds that have alot of blue in them. I can't wear tomato red.

I just enjoy your blog so. And the pictures of all the china just about leave me breathless. Why should china have that affect on me..it's the roses. Soooo beautiful. God Bless!

Elsie said...

I am both, but my kitchen is decorated in red,white and yellow.
I do like pink and I really love
your pink roses so I guess I am
both.

Joanne Kennedy said...

I do love both pink and red. However, I love the idea of a pink velvet cupcake! You should make them :)

So come on, tell us...what did the boyfriend give you for Valentine's Day? I'm dying to know :)

Hi! I'm LiLi! said...

i love pink except with my christmas decorations, they're red and gold.

lvroftiques said...

I love both. That said I don't ever want red roses...always prefer pink...And I'd rather those roses were peonies. *winks* Vanna

Connie said...

I'm a pink person,yes, even for Christmas. Cindy - love how you stacked the tea cups and saucers under the cloche!

Passionate for White said...

I hope you're in the pink again tomorrow...B-U-TEE-FULL Pics!!

Amy @MaisonDecor said...

I am pink pink pink. And more pink. I hate red, and when hubs brings the red roses I have to remember to love them because he gave them to me....but if I were getting them for myself they would be pink, of course!

Hi Cindy! I "found" your blog a while back and I'm so glad I did. I've looked at your pictures over and over again and each time I am inspired. I love both red and pink. I decorate more w/ red and other bright colors but I could so love living in your home too! Thanks for the beautiful pictures and for being a constant source of inspiration! Jana in Texas

Hi Cindy, I love pink too and the way you combine it with cream and light blue is perfection. You grow the most incredible pink roses also. Love those pink beads, I know they look beautiful on you for sure!!! Take good care, Sandy

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

Joanne, what boyfriend? He's history! I sort of hinted about that in yesterday's post. It just sort of fizzled out for us.

Susan said...

Cindy, it is okay to be a pink person. I have to say I love both red and pink equally!

Sandy said...

Happy Valentine's Day, Cindy, and I'm in the pink and don't care for red at all --- like you I don't a red thing!

Oh, I LOVE both! I have lots of pink in my house, but I wear both equally well. Love both bright pink and deep red lipstick. Yep, definitely love both.

Ashley said...

Hahahah you are hilarious :) I am a pink and red person, it all depends. Have a fabulous week lady! Xoxoxo

Marilyn said...

PINK!! Is there any other color? The first time I met my husband he was wearing a pink shirt. I sure do miss him! ♥♫

Andrea said...

As a child, I loved red and purple. As an adult, I love lavender and pink....mostly pink though! Your pictures are so very lovely!

Debbie Horvath said...

Not so much either one Cindy!! I love fall colors! Valentine's Day is not my favorite day, love should be shown everyday!

Sizzle and Zoom said...

I was so into pink I went thru two
pink handbags in a year wearing them everyday and I started a rose
garden and my first two plants were
pink. Now, I like red, too. I put in a red and white rose- looks like peppermint candy. I still like pink but I wear a little red now and then.

Jen said...

I love both. I tend to wear some red in the winter and pink in the summer.

Melissa F said...

I definitely love pink! I'm just not drawn to red, plus I don't look good in it. I have several items of clothing that are different shades of pink, and I have lots of pink accents in my home.

Sarah said...

Cindy, beautiful pinks here! I have to admit, I'm both. We have lots of red in our home, but pink pops up frequently. Pink tulips at the moment!
Happy Week to you! ~ Sarah

Kelly said...

Both, love red in the kitchen....and on a car....but love my pink roses.no red one's please....

I love decorating with reds in the house, but my garden is pink all the way!

Definitely pink...even when I wear it people compliment me!

Donna said...

Cindy, I love these photos of pink. When you display them..suddenly..I like them! Ha! Fabulous photos! BTW, I recognized some of those flowers..they looked like the ones on my antique cocoa pot from Prussia! Wow..I need to put that on my Tuesday Tea post. I didn't think about it until I saw your lovely roses on the china.

You are so inspiring!

Rose said...

LOL @ you. FUN!!!! I bet that was fun doing all that! I am a pink person to although I have used red at Christmas time but pink is MUCH prettier! lol I could just SEE my hubby if I decorated in all pink one Christmas! ;) I only have one red blouse that doesn't get worn much at all and I have a red dress but it has large black flowers in it.

Linda C. said...

Pink!
Don't own anything red, and like you, do not decorate Christmas with red.
I have a special dislike of red and black combined together in an outfit. Very, very few women can wear this combination. Looks hard and cheap...

C. Boyd said...

I love pink!! In fact - I have some of the same 1880's dishes. Love you 'pink' post!

Janet said...

I love red, but pink is my least favorite color, I never thought of the pink vs red conomdrum ( how DO you spell that word??) before, but I think you are right...it IS one or the other ;)

Anonymous said...

Hi Cindy,

I am a red person. I like pink but don't feel like I wear it well. I use to decorate in pink and burgundy but when we bought new furniture we went with the Victorian red and gold. I love it. I have Christy Repasy pictures in both pinks and reds on my walls. They all blend perfectly. BUT the reds are my favorites. Have a great day! Your photos are the best. Love to know what camera you use?????

Jan

Sheila said...

Since red is not your favorite color, I have a suggestion for your cupcakes. How about strawberry cakemix (it makes pink cake). Try with cream cheese or vanilla frosting. Even more yummy than red velvet cake!

Sheila said...

One more comment Cindy. I have put your show and tell Friday button my my blog but it is huge (not the size pictured on your page). How can I fix that? Have any suggestions?

Beverley said...

Hello Cindy, I love pink too, and every year I tell my husband that I love pink flowers and he still buys red ones. I even painted a little french chest in my hallway pink and I love it. Have a great day. Beverley

Jamie said...

Unbelievably gorgeous home. I would do anything to live surrounded by such beauty!

Rhianna said...

Pink all the way followed by purple, I would never wear red.As a matter of fact, I tend to like all the pastel colours and not like the basic colours especially when it comes to clothing.

Petit Coterie said...

I have to say I'm a both...but maybe leaning a little more towards red.

xx,
Michelle

Mamie said...

RED!!! Pink is OK, but RED is beautiful, empowering and bold. I want red crepe myrtles in the front of the house. I LOVE RED!!!

cozinhas planejadas said...

I like this post!

MimiG said...

I love red! My kitchen is red, turquoise and sunshine yellow. I use a lot of fiesta dishes. Pink washes me out, so I don't wear it. But, I love to see other people in pink.
The one color I do not use in decorating is blue - for some reason, I just can't do it!

Linda said...

OOOOOOOOOOOh, I am definately a pink person. I've also heard that you are either a green or blue person.....me green. What are you?

Linda

Cindy ~ My Romantic Home said...

I'm more of a blue person but I like green too!

My Crafty Little Page said...

I love them both...plus I love blue and white!

LukesLove said...

I like both... probably like pink a little more than red though - though I like red roses. They dry prettier than pink do! =P

Tracy said...

I am most certainly a pink girl! Your photos are always so lovely, Cindy. :)

Handy Man, Crafty Woman said...

I am definitely a red person! Although, I've been told that I look really good when I'm wearing something pink or peach toned.

Marcia (123 blog) said...

I think you're right - I am a red girl, definitely. :)

Syspil said...

I love all. Roses and romantic home. Your blog is very beautiful, with great and creative ideas. Kisses

beautiful pictures you have styled them all so well very pretty

Persian_princess said...

Although I like red in some instances and I like red roses, I am a PINK gal all the way! I love wearing pink, pink lipstick and makeup and pink in any kind of flower, decor, or anything! All your pink things are lovely :o)

Janay said...

I LOVE pink,,, but I like red a lot. Pink is my comfort color,, but to be honest, I don't decorate much with it,,, nor wear a lot of it. Weird me. My fav roses are definitely pink MUCH more than red no matter what the occasion; after that comes yellow roses.
But the only teacups and teapots I collect have pink roses in them,,, well, I do have one lavender one. :)

I agree with your philosophy.

My Cottage Charm said...

I am such a PINK girl! I am married and have three boys, but my house is decorated in pinks and creams....they just have to live with it! :) lol (this is the girl with pink and cream toile in her kitchen! ha!)
I have that same exact plate in your first collage photo...2nd pic. :) It's one of my very favorite ones too.
