And speaking of pink....
I love color! Those of you who have been hanging out with me a while already know this.
If this shade of pink is too bright for you, what shade would you substitute? Or, do you even like pink?
One nice thing about white woodwork is that you can use any color ....and create different moods. Pinks make this room seem very beach like in mood. I love it. I once painted a powder room this shade of deep pink.
As for me, I have a serious crush on this Audubon pink flamingo!
I keep wondering where I could use it in my house...and I have come up with the master bathroom. I think it would play nicely with my hearts of palm green paint. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my head. It's fun.

English lesson...In the Pink
"In the pink" is an English idiom used to describe someone who is in the absolute best possible physical condition. People often use this phrase to describe someone who is in peak condition without any significant ailments worth mentioning.
The phrase "in the pink" has been used for hundreds of years going all the way back to playwright William Shakespeare in the 16th century. For most of that time though, the phrase did not refer specifically to health. Instead, it was used to describe anything that was the best of a specific batch of things. It was only in the 20th Century that it gained its association with health.
If someone is described with this idiomatic expression, he or she must be in very good health. This phrase is used as an extreme, meaning that a person described in this matter is far above average in health and fitness. Instead, those people who merit this phrase have to be in exemplary condition compared to others. As an example, consider the sentence, "I just got a checkup and I received a clean bill of health, so you could say that I'm in the pink."
How much pink could you use in your home? Full out assault or a pinch here and there?
