Think Pink!

Think pink, if you want that quelque chose!

I tried something different and painted the images for today’s post in gouache, rather than presenting them as a digital collage like I usually would. I was more successful with some of the illustrations than others, (that shirt is the woooooorst!) but it was good practice. I feel confident in my ability to draw, so it’s the painting that I’m trying to improve.

Anyway. Think pink! Think pink, and the world is rosy-red!

A Glasses Tray

A Glasses Tray Goes Better With…

I love that glasses tray; I have a similar one, in green, that I picked up years ago from CB2. It’s the perfect spot to rest your specs, and I’ve got my eye on this new pair (half-pink!). Then one must follow the tray’s suggestion and add your keys, right? Make sure to attach a leather tassel or striped key chain for bonus points.

Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away, and then we’ll be looking forward to Christmas! To get in the spirit of the season, I set a festive fall/winter holiday table with items I already had on hand mixed in with some new finds from Target.

Holiday Table

I wanted to work with gold and silver for most of the decor, but a red runner made a colorful base for everything else to play off of. I love the way the polka dot fabric napkins look with it!

I added candlesticks in two heights, and then picked up several sizes of silver frosted mason jars. I used the smallest jars to hold tealights as intended, but instead of putting candles in the others, I used the larger ones as flower vases.

Holiday Table Setting

The table was set with our everyday silverware and classic white plates. So many of us have those standards on hand, but they felt more special with gold chargers at each seat.

The centerpieces were fun to arrange. I think that white ‘flower’ is in the cabbage family. Plus berries! I always go for the berries this time of year.

All together, the mix of metallics and the candlelight feel perfect for special occasions. I’m looking forward to using the decorations throughout the year for other dinners and holidays, too!
