Thanks again to Beverly for hosting another Pink Saturday!
I was going to go a whole different way with Pink Saturday this week, but last night when I was cleaning out the bookcase in the diningroom--in preparation for the new cover-up for it--I came across this incense holder. I bought it primarily for the look of it--it looks heavy and old. I'm not a fan of burning incense, but will put an unburned stick in a floral arrangement purely for the scent of it. My fave--green tea.
The second picture is more what I wanted to express for Pink Saturday. Pink is more than a color...it's an attitude. The author who most expresses this for me is Alexandra Stoddard. I've been collecting her books for ages...I remember getting one out of the library years and years ago...Style for Living...I read and 'studied' that book...and wanted to live that kind of life. I went through a few periods of that, but mostly I fall back into a relaxed living style. I met Alexandra years ago (I think my daughter was in second grade), when she visited our area to do a Town Hall Lecture. Her husband was in attendance, and they were such a 'cute' couple. I took along a few books for an autograph, and she was so gracious to everyone in line...stopping to chat, to sign, and to insert a beautiful grosgrain ribbon into all of the autographed books. Whenever I think of pink, Alexandra Stoddard comes to mind.
