Pink Saturday: Follow Your Dreams?

It's another Pink Saturday hosted by Bev at How Sweet the Sound. Please visit her to see what's happening on the Pink scene this weekend! Please click on photos to enlarge.

Upon my bed I had a dream

of vintage beds in gold and cream

in gold and cream and pewter gray

my lovely dream was fading away

but not before I caught a wink

of a French boudoir in vintage pink.

- Castles Crowns and Cottages

Have you ever had a dream from which you wake thinking, "That was the best idea I've ever had?"

Well, I haven't been able to shake the idea that I would love to take this little dressing table in my bedroom

and paint it pink.

So I eagerly bounced out of my bed

and slipped on my little chaussons

and made a pot of tea to help me rethink my dream and plan my strategy

while I sat in my favorite pink chair.

As I recall, the surrounding d├ęcor was a soft French white with a subtle hint of pink

as opposed to this silk chair in a bold raspberry hue

or the almost blueberry tint of this chest of drawers from Nella Vetrina.

No, this was a soft, faded tone like that of my vintage diaries

or this magnificent pair of chairs with just the right touch of gold.

However, to my dismay, I ended up with a flat Pepto Bismo shade

that didn't quite fulfill my dreams. So next time I have a bright idea while dreaming, I'll just stay in bed a little longer

and let my whims wear off a bit before I follow my dreams!

Have a fun PINK SATURDAY and have a blessed Thanksgiving!
