Do you think that there is an age when pink is no longer appropriate? I grew up with a bedroom decorated in pink as my mother thought that it was suitable for a girl. Then, typically, I rebelled and cast aside pink for many a long year. I longed for Ikea furnishings, loud music with tortured lyrics and black leather. With Valentine's Day fast approaching I realized that pink has been steathily creeping back in to my life. First, in the form of vintage pink Pyrex. After all, who can resist vintage flamingo pink Pyrex? And then, as luck would have it, I was out and about shopping with my mother when I spied these amazing Rupert Sanderson shoes in pink! My mother was so very gracious as to give them to me as a gift. I suspect that she still believes that pink is suitable for a daughter, no matter that said daughter is a little girl in her eyes only.

And new shoes mean scrambling through my vintage dresser for that perfect outfit. Yes, my taste has swung back from the new and the modern to the tried and the true, especially if it comes with Art Deco styling and old pulls that have that instantly recognizable, impossible to duplicate patina.
But, with the weather still inclement, what to do for Valentine's Day, especially something that involves pink shoes and when one is on a budget? Nothing for it but to have a little picnic in the park at home.
Of course the wondrous shoes get kicked off but still kept close to hand so that they can be suitably admired by oneself and one's beloved.
And future outings are planned over a celebratory glass or two, all of which involve the wearing of pink shoes.
As the saying goes, I'm in the pink!
I've heard that Google Friend Connect will be disappearing soon for those who aren't on Blogger. If you are on a different platform besides Blogger, you can still follow me through Networked Blogs. The simplest route may be to suscribe through email. More than anything, I want to remain in contact with all the lovely people I've met through L'Heure Bleue At Home so have finally caved and am on Facebook as well.
