Pink Saturday - Candy Dresses

I love Pink Saturdays! Thursday it started snowing raining in NYC and on my way to grab the bus I walked through my building through Henri Bendel Store to cut through to Fifth Avenue to stay dry as long as I could and I look up and see this "Pink" dress made from candy wrapped in pink wrappers! Get out...I know! (sorry for all the exclamations) I stood in awe at the amazing talent and wondered who had this idea? As I was walking out the store I looked up and saw a dress made of pink and brown cupcake liners and one made with buttons and thread spools. From far away they look like plain dresses but up close you see the intricate details the perfectly placed items. I smiled as I opened my umbrella. It didn't matter how miserable the outside weather was anymore all this Pink pretties made me happy...Please get happy also and visit Beverly from How Sweet the Sound and some more Pink Saturday blog posts.

Re-Cycled Bottle Flower Garden in Snowy NY

I am so ready for Spring! It is snowing in NY as I type but just not sticking yet. I went to Anthropologie last night and noticed their very cool recycled bottle "Flower" garden window display. I just smiled at how very cool and artistic not to mention "Green" this was. So for now I have my "recycled bottle flowers" to enjoy and hopefully soon can enjoy the real ones! xoxox

Pink Saturday - ZoZo the Magic Queen

I bought ZoZo the Magic Queen calendar before Christmas and fell in "Love" with it and thought I had to share for Pink Saturday. I did not post all the pictures just a few that had "Pink" in them. This is truly a calendar filled with sweet art! I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! Pink Saturday Kisses xxxx

Pink Saturday - Sweets - Henri Bendel

Another Pink Saturday rolled around! I had a few Pinks on reserve but when I saw the new Henri Bendel window display I knew it had to be the "1"! I stood there staring at the manequin head cakes and the sweet cart filled with French macaroons, love the pink ones, and cupcakes! It is difficult to get a good picture without the glare of the windows. I am lucky I work in the office building above it and get to take the pictures a few times. Ok I have mentioned that Marie Antoniete is "big" (Let them eat Cake) and also cupcakes are "big" also! Cupcakes are all over and cupcake shops are doing well! I love the way art and crafts and everyday life all come together. Please visit Beverly from How Sweet the Sound, who is our lovely Host for Pink Saturday and visit with some of the other Pink Saturday blog posts.

Mary Janes Farm Magazine

I love this Magazine! This summer I received something in the mail to order and was intrigued but mysteriously the order form disappeared into the recycle and I forgot about it. Last night I passed by the bookstore and glanced at the magazines and there she was "Mary Jane". I hurried and paid for her and took the bus home. I was exploding to read it but I just wanted to have jammies on a nice cup of tea and relax. I now subscribed to it and can't wait to start seeing other issues. It is so well written and so much fun to look through the pictures so vintage and sweet. Some great articles, and great recipes. I only gave you a "glimpse" but I hope you get to sit with your favorite beverage and relax and enjoy it as much as I did!
Fun articles & stories
