Pink Saturday

Hello bloggerettes and welcome to Pink Saturday once again!

Today I would like to share a Giveaway which I was fortunate to win from Debra at Common Ground~
It is Carolyn Westbrook's newly published French Inspired Home. It is a wonderful hard covered book filled with pages of lovely French country designs.

The book arrived sweetly wrapped in this pretty pink tissue paper and tied with pink ribbon. Debra had also included this wonderful linen screen printed cloth which I will use in one of my tea parties soon. Thank you so much Debra!
The front cover features a white slip covered sofa with a gorgeous pink throw and pillow on it. Luscious pink roses are also part of the yummy decor. The lovely swan planter in the background has a tinge of pink as well.
Now on to more pinks in the book...

Carolyn says, "Squeezed in between the French, slip covered armchairs is a small, curvaceous table painted in just the right tone of pink for the color palette I was going for."
Isn't that little pink chest just gorgeous? So are the cushions!A pink throw and roses which are from the cover.
"A time-worn outdoor table makes a wonderful coffee table alongside the slip covered sofa."I love this beautiful pitcher filled with soft pink roses!
"Resting atop a pale blue Asiatic Pheasant china pedestal, kitchen essentials such as dish soap have been repackaged to become objects worthy of display, while the scented candle not only freshens the air but is pretty in its own right." "This room is full of the finest French elements; a pink bombe' chest, an ornate framed mirror, a gorgeous lamp, and the special footstool that was passed down from the home owner's amazing grandmother, who owned an antique store on Rodeo Drive." I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of the decorating and photography from Carolyn's new book. There are many beautiful pages of different Frenchy designs.

It's only about two months away from Christmas so I am working on some Christmas crafts. I have my newest little Christmas tree to share with you. This is a tree I already had in my home and the decorations were just added to it. You will notice there is some pink in it and topped off with a pretty pink bow. I am going to make a wreath to match but I'll share that another day.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and right now they have pink bathroom tissue on display in some supermarkets. I picked up some myself. Please make sure you get your mammogram, dear ladies! It could help save your life.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you will visit Beverly and see her host of pinkies today.
