The Joy of Life ~ Pink & Silver

~ Pink Saturday and Silver Sunday ~ 
The Perfect Weekend
This weekend, I wanted to share with you some photos I have taken over the past year....all, I think, expressing the simple things that really are the joy of life. Celebrating pink, they all express that beautiful color in one way or another........ vibrant, soft, weathered, sweet, yummy, ruffly, whimsical and cute. They all express The Joy of Life in just the simple everyday things..... Enjoy! 

 my neighbor's  pink swing


Ms. Boo at the ice cream truck


blooming pink tin flowers on someone's patio fence....too cute!


now you know I had to go in this cute store...bought some really cute shoes :)


pink parasols in a bucket......makes you want to smile!


And pink polka dot poodles....especially wearing vintage rhinestone collars!
(these precious poodles are here,  just waiting for you to come take them home:)


And Oh yeah....about that silver! It's Silver Sunday weekend too. Now, you can't find anything in life simpler than a hook. But not just any ol' hook. A huge SILVER, crusty, rusty monster of a hook. What the hay? you say! That's what Bobby G. said when I lugged it home. Now, here I go talking about that beach house again but when I saw this hook I thought how fabulous it would be in a vignette of simple beach pleasures. Surround it with seashells (reminds me of a sea going vessel). Or lean it up against a stack of nautical books. Or put it on a shelf with a big oil painting of the ocean behind it. Yeah....it's truly the simple things in life that give me pleasure.  And just in case you need this wonder of architectural  salvaged beauty it's right here.


And I am just "chatouille rose" (loosely translated....tickled pink :)  )  today to introduce you to a fabulous new e-magazine about to be published.

I love all of your pink Lynn, but I adore those pink umbrellas. I mentioned you as my Pink Saturday Lady today. Remembering that you were one of the first people to ever visit my blog over three years ago.

How exciting to be part of a lovely magazine. Congratulations.

Have a lovely Pink Saturday and weekend.
Karen

Hello Lynn,

Ok, first of: Congratulations! And the sneak peak? Enjoyed the pics. Love, love, love that house so ready for Autumn :-)

You sure do live where there is fun, ice cream trucks passing by for little and big girls and then that fence! Your neighbor sure knows how to brighten passersby :-) And yes, the pink bench - looks so romantic and made me think of wedding photoshoots.

Happy Pink Saturday!

Mizpah,
Li

(almost forgot, that hook is huge (and I'm sure very heavy too. )

Jennifer Scull said...

I love your photos! but I agree with the other poster about the pink umbrellas..... I need one NOW! grins! and a pink swing, too!

Happy PS!

NanE said...

Happy PINK Saturday Lynn! I loved the flowers on the fence, how cool is that?! There is a house at the beach that has giant flip flops on their fence. I really need to stop and take a picture some day. Congrats on the launch of the ezine, I will check it out. Have a great weekend, Nan

Rebecca said...

Just went by a little white house today while going to garage sales and it had a simple pink porch swing-loved all the images!

Sherry from Alabama said...

Happy Pink Saturday Lynn Sweetie...
What a beautiful share today. I so love coming to see what you are up to.

I love that pink swing. I think I would be spending a little to much time over at the neighbors house. How pretty it is.

That ice cream truck looks pretty darn inviting. I think I will just get in line behind Ms Boo at the truck. Nutty Butties are my favorite.

I can't wait to see what you bought inside the shoppe. I love the flowers and dragonflies on the fence. That would make my brakes work really quick.

What an awesome job you did with that journal. Sweetie you have such wonderful talents and such an eye for beauty. Each night I climb into bed, I look at my spread and smile. When I cover up I thank you for giving me beauty and peace.

Thank you Lynne sweetie for sharing with me today. Have a beautiful Saturday sweet friend.

Many hugs and so much love, Sherry

I love the fence.would like that in my yard. Laura Q

Jacqueline said...

How nice of you to visit from Pink Saturday. I would love to follow you back! You have a really fun post today. I think my favorite is the metal flowers on the fence, how whimsical is that. Lovin' all the pink today. I am so glad that I did Pink Saturday today.

If you can't find the cupcake wrappers, I googled it and Etsy has tons more than you find in stores. I want to get some like the yellow and purple ones that are in chocolate brown, but haven't ordered any yet.

Have fun. I agree, there is never enough frosting so I only eat the top half until I tried filling the cupcakes and I don't bake in the pretty cups because the oil leaks through!

Jacqueline said...

So nice to meet you. Thanks for all of the wonderful compliments. I would love to follow you back! What fun pink things you posted today. I can't believe the flowers on the fence. How fun is that

I absolutely love the pink swing. I want to meet your neighbor. ;)

Also, these photos are magnificent. You have the eyes of an artist.

dana said...

Lynn, I love you "simple" shots that say so much!!! That one of Boo is so adorable!! WOW! That's wonderful that you are part of an online magazine.....best wishes with a successful endeavor!!

Yes, my computer is an iMac (desk top). I love it. I selected that, instead of a lap top cuz you get more for your money. However, I am already saving my "coins" again. One day, I was a Mac laptop,too. The "learning curve" is challenging, but not that much!!! I know you will love it for your design work...and I am thrilled to have it cuz they don't get viruses...often. After my last PC getting struck by one out of the blue....it was awful. Anyway, your son is right...you would love it!

Gotta go take the gr. dog for a little walk. It's so hot here, I don't want to outside.

Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!! L, Dana

Beth at Aunties said...

I agree with dear Muse the swing is awesome:) What a great pink post today!

Maison Mutt said...

Nothing better that to jazz up a boring fence with brightly painted flowers. Are they wooden or metal? I couldn't tell, but I can tell you this...next house with a fence will have brightly painted flowers on it!

This post was a feast for the eyes!
I love the painted flowers-

VintageSage said...

Hi Lynn!

Thanks for stopping by my vintage place. :)) I adore your blog and this pink post was too cute for words. I would love to have one of those pink parasols. That would add to my already extreme girliness but you can never be too girly, right? Lol! I am adding your name to my blogroll. I'm discovering so many other great blogs through the Practical Magic party! Can't wait to see you there!! Blessings!

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

I loved all your pretty pinks! I love the tin flowers on the fence and the pink parasols! HPS!

Hi Lynn! That swing is fabulous; but my back is terrible... ;)

Beverly said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Lynn.

Each of these images are lovely. My favorites are the swing and the flowers on the fence.

I'm off to find out about Belle Inspiration. It sounds like something that would interest me.

Those flowers on the fence, what a clever idea. The big hook would look nice with a hanging flower basket. Be back to see what you find.

Sarah said...

Lynn, each one of these photos puts a smile on my face. Yes, the simple things in life do provide such joy. The hook was an interesting find. I'm headed over to the link to read more.
I'm late arriving and posting for Silver Sunday this month, but hope you will stop by for a visit. I'm sharing some recent sliver finds. ~ Sarah
