Pretty In Pink

So much to tell you, so little time, so I'd better get started...
Firstly, I noticed in my random comments in the last post, that I stated that my favourite colour is blue. Now when I really stop and consider it, I am indeed very fond of blue, and green. But why oh why didn't I just tell the truth? My favourite colour is pink, yes

there's nothing shameful in that, is there?
I like pink.
Look, here's Favourite Jacket:

which obviously goes with Favourite Skirt:

(which clearly should have been ironed but isn't).

and 'Sweatshirt I am More Than Likely to Wear to Church':

It's not a coincidence, is it?

So why do I feel like a criminal every time someone asks me what my favourite colour is? Maybe I think people will think I am a ditsy little girl who likes pink (with a chihuahua in my handbag) which clearly I am not (although I do have a soft spot for cupcakes with pink icing). I am a very down-to-earth girl who wears jeans and walks like a farmer's wife. Well I've admitted it now and I'm going to revel in it. Good news for favourite notebook, then...

No wonder it has pride of place on my desk.

Secondly, my mojo has been slightly absent on the cardmaking front, but that's because I managed to convince myself that I wasn't going to sell any of the Valentine's Day cards I made for the shop. I have finally been down today to do a stock take and I've sold nine out of the ten cards that I made, plus five other cards. I can't believe it. I'd got into a bit of a state about not buying any more stamps or paper, so I've heaved a huge sigh of relief. I still let Mr O buy the celebratory Chinese meal though...

I have made a few cards, though, so I hope you like this one:

It's my little mouse stamp from Little Claire's Designs. I do so love the style of their stamps and this one is no exception. I dare say this one will crop up again.

I've got quite a bit to tell you about Barnaby but I'd better save that for my next post. Visitors are coming tomorrow so I've had one of those major clean-ups that makes you barely recognise your own house.

Have a great weekend everyone,

Mrs O.


  1. I'm a total pink girl, I don't know if my blog might have given you a clue (!) but I find it hard to admit to it too so tell people my favourite colour is purple! It's bonkers. So now I've gone and done it... I love pink too... And I'm proud! The cat's out of that bag then. :) Em xxx

  2. Thanks for saying hello on my blog and I love pink too, it cheers me up when I wear it!
    You have a very fine looking horse, Spotty had a hard start in life pulling a cart so he gets lots of TLC now. I will be blogging about his work at the Riding for Disabled centre, he is fantastic with the children.
    Have a great weekend

  3. I didn't like pink until suddenly I did.
    Now I love it, in every imaginable shade. In my case, I think it is an Age Thing.

  4. We will let you of, its not a sin for admitting your favourite colour is pink though I must say mine is Mauve, but each to his own.
    Have a wonderful weekend. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx

  5. Nothing wrong with Pink although I don't think I suit it. Dare I tell you that I wear a lot of black and grey ? (I'm so boring lol)

  6. I too like pink. Sometimes it's just the right color to brighten up a day.

    So wonderful about selling all those cards. It just proves how special they were and are. Congratulations!

  7. Love the little mouse and have to confess that I too like pink.


I love to hear from visitors, so please let me know you dropped by, and I will visit you as soon as I can.
