Little Pleasures.

I don't have too much pink around my home, but in my summer-y garden it is a must! Skilfully and artistically mixed and matched with purple, lilac and white. 
I'm totally overwhelmed by these colors surrounding me in profusion these days! They have inspired me these shots, and some art too. Love to paint in the garden during summertime, and I have promised to myself to spend some time each day outside with my watercolors, when this fool weather permits. I'm a little confused with it this year...

Love monograms. I hand embroidered this towel, and another identical one in blue for my hubby, who has my same initial, when we were engaged. To be honest, I wonder why I put so much energy and time to embroider a cotton bath towel, as they are anything but practical! I think I have to make something out of them one day.



I wish you could smell these! 

And speaking of little things that make me happy (these are tiny indeed! LOL)... I finally have my MOO mini cards! Probably I'm the last one in the whole cyber world to have them made, but if by chance you don't know MOO, I suggest you to check it out! I am completely happy with the result.

I leave you with this peaceful image taken this morning while I was journaling outside, surrounded by flowers blooming, birds chirping and bees and butterflies flying... (and Kim snoring at my feet!)... sipping my morning coffee... love these moments of connection with my inner self.

Don't forget to visit Beverly and the other Pinkies for more lovely pinks today.
Smiles, and have a terrific weekend everyone!

  4. Love you pinks! Your flowers are beautiful, as well as your monogram towel. Yes - 100% cotton has it's faults. Let's just say - my ironing board has not been out in a while. :D

  10. Beautiful!!!!!!!!!! I have not done PINK Saturday in weeks. I need to get back on the wagon. Time seems to fly. Where does it go? Monica as always your photos are amazing. You must be much cooler than we are here. It has gotten hot faster/sooner this year than usual. It is stiffling already. Have a good weekend & HUG Kim for me. Charlene
