Pink Saturday ~ Spring Fever

Happy Pink Saturday my friends! Please visit Beverly at http://www.howsweetthesound.typepad.com/ to see all of the pink participants this week!

For some unknown reason I have Spring Fever! I know, it's only January, right? You don't have to tell me that we have at least two more months of winter here in Western New York! Yet I just can't seem to help it! Much to my husband's dismay this means that I like to re-decorate, even if it's only simple little touches. I've decided that my living room needs more roses and more pink. But, while my husband really doesn't care much about what I do with the decor, I've decided that I should do this rather slowly.

Here's a little touch that I added a short time ago. This is really a candle holder but I rather like it filled with rose potpourri and with some pink seam binding around it!

I've been looking for some rose pillows and I found these at Target.com. My couches are burgandy so the burgandy and pink in the pillow will look very nice I think.

What do you think? If you know where else I might search for Pink Rose Pillows please let me know!

I added a beautiful rose picture last year and hubby said he actually liked it!!!!! That means add more roses, right? He, he, he!

Have a wonderful weekend and let's hope Spring comes early this year!

Hugs,

Jacalyn

What a wonderful Pink Saturday post! I just ♥ the fact that each of us shares such a variety of items - that's one reason why this event is never boring. Always something fun, new, lovely or interesting around the corner.

I have MEGA spring fever right now but it will be a couple of months before our snow is gone...sigh.

Thanks for sharing a part of yourself today☺ Cold, gloomy day today but, as always, bright and sunny on the Pink Saturday blogs.

♫Wishing you sunshine and happiness this weekend!♫

Oh I totally know what you mean. Something gets into us and we have to redo. I think it's a nesting thing that just comes with spring. I love to turn the house upside down, room by room and give it a good cleaning, redecorate, let things go and bring in the new, Happy Pink Saturday to you and good luck with rose pillows. I make them and sell them on my website as do many others, it shouldn't be hard to find many gorgeous items out there, happy hunting, that is half the fun. Bunny Cottage, Vicki has a great collection and would be someone to ask, hope that helps, Char

HI Jacalynn!
Roses. EVERYONE loves them and they deserve all the ooooooos and aaaaaaaahs, don't they? I love the Target pillows, too! Happy!

Hi Jacalyn -- Thanks for stopping by my blog. I, too, mentioned the notion that perhaps the living room needs painting (predictable side effect of winter blahs on my part), he practically covered his ears and ran screaming from the room!

Good luck with your hubby. Yes, I DO think that means more roses!

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Jacalyn, I love that rose pillow. If I see any other sources, I will be sure and let you know, but some of the etsy stores have them. Some of our Pinkies make them. Seems like Rebecca and Betzie both make them. Maybe they could do a custom one for you.

Happy Pink Saturday...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Thank you for dropping and leaving nice comments. So nice to meet you here in Blogland. I also am ready for spring, never cared much for winter. Also working on adding a little pink here and there in my decor. Pink just adds some magic doesn't it? Have a great weekend!

Claudia said...

I also have been adding roses to my home in the form of rose paintings. But I think my husband would like me to stop now! Happy Pink Saturday!

Terry said...

I too am getting spring fever, maybe because today felt like a nice spring day. It is just teasing us because Monday we are suppose to get more snow.

Very pretty pillow, before your Hubs knows what happens your place will be all girly.

Coralie Cederna Johnson said...

Happy pink day! Thanks for the comment on my blog. Yours is so lovely. DE

Terri Morse said...

Hi Jacalyn! I'm with you...the more pink roses the better! I'll bet if you google shabby chic or cottage decorating, you'd probably find tons more pillows. Happy Pink Saturday, and here's hoping that Spring isn't too far down the road. -Terri

Ginger said...

Happy PS

Vicki said...

Hi, Jacalyn,
I have spring fever, too. In fact, I am very much a springtime person. I love what you did with your potpourri jar. I think the pillows are very pretty and will go well with your couch. Smart lady to add a "few roses" at a time to let hubby get used to them! Happy Pink Saturday and enjoy your weekend! Vicki

Patricia said...

Happy Pink Saturday. What beautiful photos all in Pink. I too have Spring fever - I just can't wait. Please have a wonderful new week.

Rostrose said...

Hi Jacalyn - I think everybody in the colder part of the world has spring fever now ;o) Today it's Sunday, but I want to wish you a happy Pink Saturday - Your pinks are lovely! This week I am not participating but showing a little bit of our district capital Baden near Vienna. Perhaps you like the old houses there? Hugs, Traude

Self Sagacity said...

Hi Jacklyn, such lovely pink post. I like your pink pillow, and at Target.com huh? It matches well. BTW- I love Target too.

Dogmom Diva said...

Hi Jacalyn, love the rose pillow bet it looks great with your sofa..I agree, I love cabbage roses and to integrate that into our living area I would have to go S.L.O.W. but it can be, and should be done, if that is a passion. I am going to redo our guest room into shabby, vintage and prim..I am the mom of grown sons..I need a girly room just to enjoy!
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful week

hugs, Barb

MyThoughtsMyVoice said...

I like that you filled the candle holder with potpourri and ties with a ribbon and a rose :-) And I commend you for doing it slowly (redecorating in pink), that way it won't be a big shock for the husband LOL

Belated PS!

Mizpah,

Love the pillow. I've got to get myself over to Target or is it possibly on line?

One can never have too many roses or too much pink.
