In The Pink …Floral Friday

I sometimes get inspiration from the most banal things. The other morning, while wiping down the cabinets in the bathroom, I noticed that a tiny bit of the white paint had worn away over the years. There was an inch-long patch of pink barely visible. I momentarily considered the possibility of repainting the cabinets pink, but quickly nixed the idea. A large presence of pink in the bathroom just seems wrong-headed. I’d get tired of it rather quickly.

In my opinion, pink is a color to be used sparingly, more as an accent–such as with flower projects. So, I hunted for pink blooms to place in contrasting green pottery and I was off and running.

A green USA Pottery planter cradles a cluster of pink lilies in a bed of greenery.

A large pastel pink lily is protected by small pink accents and nestled in a small, vintage McCoy flower pot.

Five pink roses dominate a posey of flowers in a USA Pottery urn.


The Blue Jay of Happiness puzzles over a quote by 20th century fashion columnist and editor, Diana Vreeland. “Pink is the navy blue of India.”
