I'm Dreaming of a Pink Christmas ~

Just this morning I wrote a blog post about how I was wanting to cling to fall a little longer. Well, this evening, after an outing to a local gift shop, I'm already feeling the excitement of the holidays! I do love all the sparkle, glitter and glow that goes along with the season. I usually stick with traditional colors for Christmas ~  red and gold in particular. Not that I haven't experimented with an all silver tree one year, multi-colored another year, a rustic, all-natural tree yet another year. But, I always seem to gravitate back to the traditional colors that say "Christmas" to me. Needless to say, I've collected a whole lot of red and gold ornaments over the years. Well, today I went to the Christmas Open House of one of my favorite little shops in town, where I took these photos:



So, now I'm dreaming of a pink Christmas! With so much red and gold already in my Christmas bins, I don't think I can do a complete pink Christmas this year, but perhaps a touch here or there ~ someplace in my house! Maybe my bedroom? I think I'll fill a clear glass bowl with some of these to sit on my vanity:



Here's more gorgeous Christmas pinks to feast your eyes on, all courtesy of Martha Stewart.com, which can be found HERE:






I'm now officially in the holiday spirit! Linking this to: 
Until next time, have a wonderful weekend!

I am smiling to myself because I too have held off on Christmas, but we got snow this morning so I turned on the Christmas music and even bought a small wreath at a thrift store today. I am dreaming of different colors myself. I have been thinking about brown actually and maybe green! Strange I know but I saw a card done in this color and it was so pretty! I think I am ready to head to the craft shop that does a Christmas line for inspiration. Love the pink!
Blessings,

I guess pink is the color for Christmas this year. I keep passing these tiny pink ornaments in Walmart. They're little glittery high heels. I'm thinking of getting some to use on some kind of craft.Those are beautiful pictures, Cindy. Get out your pink tea cups 'cause I'm coming over for some of those pink cupcakes right now.
