pretty in pink

I was violently obsessed with pink from childhood until my early teens. Pretty in Pink was the favourite movie and Molly Ringwald the unrivalled heroine. Since this obsession was so thorough and passionate I haven’t been able to appreciate pink since. I don’t know how many times my mum have tried to sweet talk me into wearing pink – “couldn’t you just consider scarves or a tee – pink goes so well with your colours”. She spoke in vain for a long time; hoping to convince me that me+pink is a dashing combination. But even I must admit that – even though I have a hard time believing that I’ll ever paint a room in any shade of pink or long for pink curtains or furniture or pillows or wear pink scarves or jumpers – pink cherry blossoms are beautiful. And I must confess that I like other pink flowers as well…and some pink inks…and piglets.

    I’m like you about pink but for the opposite reason, Dandelion. I rather hate pink for clothing as I was forced to wear pretty pink clothes by my mother when I was a girl. Pink clothing, accessories and furnishings seems so girlie to me. But pink in nature, and purple are a different matter. Even pinkish inks are permitted.

    I love cherry blossoms. There were a large number of those trees where I worked and one day they got chopped down. I was quite sad. The building management said it was due to the trees being sick…but I think they were just evil.

    Oops, meant Suguaro Wine (not rose) :D

    Beautiful pink flowers. Love the piglet reference! And I, too, like some of the pink inks. The Isoshizuku Tsutsuji is lovely and I like the Noodlers Ottoman Rose and Sugauro Rose…..and oh that Diamine Claret is just yummy. Other than that, I’m not much of a pink lover, either. Blues and purples and blue-greens are my colors.

      Happy that you liked the piglet thing :) I’ve only tried the Claret (crazy happy ink) of the ones you mentioned, but must check them up. The Larmes de Cassis is a pinkish favourite.
