ECS Cottage Colors

It's Cottage Colors Monday at Etsy Cottage Style - and the color today is my most favorite - PINK!!  Since I post a lot on Pink Saturday, I won't bore you with too many repeats.  I love, love, LOVE teacups with pink roses, pink crochet items, pink shoes, pink wedding dresses, pink cars - oh, the list could go on and on.  But what I like most is painting pink roses.  Here are a few of my favorite things -

 A Christmas ornament made from a recycled chandelier bulb.
 A beautiful pink embroidered wedding gown - I loved this when I saw it on "Say Yes to the Dress".
 
 Who wouldn't love zebra heels with pink soles.  I can't even imagine wearing something so high!!
And my favorite all time car - the 1955 T-Bird - and it comes in pink.  The downside is they didn't have air conditioning and in Florida I would not survive in a car without air conditioning.  I will just have to admire it from a distance.
And my little plaque that I recently painted.  I haven't painted in oils for a while and with a very limited palette of pink, I decided to try them again.  Of course, now that I am looking at it I should have added one more rose or bud - you should never have even numbers, looks so much better in groups of three, five, etc.

Join the ladies at Etsy Cottage Style who will be sharing all their PINKS today.

  7. Hi Brenda,
    Just lovely as always. I love your light bulb ornie and enjoy this style bulb too. It can be a challenge with the surface. The T-Bird is awesome and your gorgeous plaque is so pretty in oils. I love it even without the odd number placement. We are our own worst critics when we paint.
    So nice to see you today an thank you for stopping by.
    Have a wonderful Mother's Day.
    Hugs, Celestina Marie
