I’m Not Tickled Pink!

Most people who know me know I have a thing about pink. Because its my least favourite colour. Over at Anna’s Herding Cats Burning Soup she is challenging us to think pink this month!


When I arrived in this house there were salmon pink curtains – not so bad but I said “I’m gonna change them soon”. Yes like nearly ahem 17 years later they are still there. But… look out 2019 is the year!

The bathroom was very pink – the walls in the house were all light pink. No! No! At least now most of the walls in the house are a yellow. And the kitchen cabinets have been painted out from their pink colour. The pink bathroom is gone. Yes!

But… I can’t escape pink – well apart from the fact I don’t wear it. I am more an autumn wearing person.


I am learning to accept pink! Allow it about here and there. Someone planted pink flowers in my garden. I used to chop them all off. Now I just am thankful for flowers.plant photo

I fell in love with this pink fabric! What! No its quite nice really. I loved sewing it up. I’ll give the quilt away but… well I do like the pink in this one!quilt

I think I could adapt to pink here and there!

Taking a look at my bookshelves I see hardly any pink covers – maybe a couple. One library book too that has a kinda rose pink cover that I am planning to read soon. But I can cope with a pinkish book cover.

What’s your favourite colour and what’s the one you try to avoid and perhaps like me not totally be able to escape.

If you are a lover of pink – what’s your favourite thing in pink? Would you drive a pink car? Cook with pink pots? Have a pink phone? Have an all pink bathroom? Well you know I wouldn’t!
