AWESOME PINKS ~ ~

the PINK balloons, sent up with prayers....

our prayers for a safe and quick recovery for the
NIELSONS

the SILENT AUCTION to raise money for the NIELSONS is still going on. So many lovely ladies donated so many lovely things. You are sure to find something you will just have to have. And, of course, it is for a very worthy cause.

MR. JOHN MELLENCAMP singing PINK HOUSES

**********************************************************************

oh, YES...i do love PINK, just as all of you out there...
especially our sweet
BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND
our hostess for another fabulous
PINK SATURDAY
***********************************
HOWEVER....
I am thinking that the folks who live in the houses below might like
PINK, even better than BEVERLY !!
what?? is it possible ??

the most precious little house and just look at that vintage bike !
i want it !!


is this a fairy tale come true or what !!
so awesome, i don't even hve words for it.....
you can tell there's lots of LOVE living here by all the precious hearts !!!
reminds me a little of HANSEL nd GRETEL ...does it you?
and, really....is it a REAL house or computer enhanced?
regardless, it sure is a PINK HONEY !!

now, ladies,.....this one is a wee bit on the
UGLY side to my eyes.....no...never mind...NOT a wee bit but a ....
WHOLE BUNCH ugly !!
(excuse me if this is YOUR house!! i really didn't mean that it is UGLY........uh....just kiddin'...oh,dear) ....
but....
it's a shade of PINK, and it IS interesting, so it made it to the final cut of this posting! :O)

ok..i see that it is 2 houses...2 UGLY houses !

ahhh, this is just fabulous !
so romantic.....
france ?
italy?
probably new orleans !!
if so...wonder if it's still there?

not sure what this is but it is so dang CUTE !!
their sign says, books, videos...
and i love their little picnic table outside.
cuteness all over the place !

look at those little precious balconies up there....
and the little aqua awnings...
O HONEY
where in the world would this be ??
DREAM LAND, maybe !


OK...THIS is waaaay awesome...
a PINK bridge to a lot of PINK houses...
how cute is that !!
just think....
an ENTIRE bridge painted such a luscious shade of PINK !
soooo cool



check it out....their little picket fence is even PINK...

what can one say about THIS one other than if , all at once, i inherited it,
i would faint and fall over dead !!!
GOSH O'MIGHTY...... THIS IS A BEAUTY !!

FABULOUS NOTE TO ADD HERE FROM A SWEET READER:

Debbie from NJ said...
Oh BJ, these houses are so cute! My favorite is the pink and white one with the gingerbread! That is actually located in Cape May NJ, and I had the pleasure of going inside it about 6-7 yrs ago! It was the most beautiful fu fu store with the prettiest victorian things! Fu Fu hats with feathers, and gorgeous pictures, and pretties for the bedroom. On the side of the house was a lovely flower garden and we took a picture of our daughter. I have it in my photo grouping, and it is the prettiest! thanks for posting all of thes pretty houses!

Debbie....POSTING these pretty house was MY PLEASURE...

My thanks to you, you lucky girl for getting to see this beauty in person, for sharing this

IN THE PINK information with us...I so appreciate it!

now this PINK BEAUTY has GOT to be one that SOMEONE had a LOT OF FUN with !
bet they love it dearly..
it is a show stopper, for sure!!
don't you know whoever lives here has the most sunny disposition in the world.
?
i would LOVE to meet her !!
so much fun !


this biggy looks a little faded on the PINK parts but maybe that is because the
rest of the houses on the page are pretty PINK-PINK !! faded and a bit COLD....

UMMMMM, this looks, to me, like maybe an aging movie star lives here
in all the PINK splendor....
with a fabulous, winding stairway and a hugh, marble topped round table
topped with a HUGH crystal vase just overflowing with PINK roses in the entry...
and, OF COURSE, the most magnificent chandelier hanging above.....

the butler meets you at the door and directs you to
THE PARLOR (guess what color !! :o)
all done up in fanciness in the most delicious shades of PINK WONDER.....
"Would you like one lump or two?" when the maid serves your delicious tea,
out of the most beautiful ROSE CHINTZ tea pot and dainty cups.
And, of course, tiny little dainty finger sandwiches and the delicious little

PINK SUGAR COOKIES .....

LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT
*********************************
how wonderful to live in a PINK WORLD...
*****************************
swing by to see all of the other PINKNESS going on over at
HOW SWEET THE SOUND
you will be tickled PINK that you did !!

blessings and love, bj

ginger at enchanting cottage said...

Good morning BJ, My prayers go to the Neilson's daily. I never visited her blog and feel like I missed out after reading it latley. I pray for Deena as well. That is so sweet of you to remind us about our blogging friends in need of prayer. I am so thankful that I have this group of blogging friends it's people like you that make my day.
I love the pink houses, I sure wish I could go out of my box and do something crazy like that pink picket fence, it's just to cute~~~~
Have a wonderful day

Beverly said...

Good morning and Happy Pink Saturday, BJ. I am glad I stopped by bright and early because I didn't know you were posting pink today. I just opened my post to add your link.

I do think the owners of some of those houses like pink more than I do. I love the house with all of the beautiful gingerbread.

Such a fun post. Thanks for sharing, and thanks for reminding everyone of the much needed prayers.

Kathleen Grace said...

Good morning Bj! I dont know if I would want to live in some of these pink houses, cute as they are, they do seem just a little unreal. I would sure visit them though! I wondered if that second one was real too! If it is, what do you think the neighbors think lioving next to that fairy tale home?

Baby Vagabond said...

Morning BJ! Am I in time for a cup of coffee?

Just love your pink post. I would set that first little pink cottage in the woods behind our house as a special place for Lola, Lolasmom, and MumMum (me) to play. Can you imagine what fun stories you could imagine there ;-0

((hugs)) Rosie

Sweetie said...

Good Morning, BJ. I love your pinks. My favorite house is the one with all of the gingerbread trim. Your post is really clever. You really have some great ideas and wonderful posts. I could spend hours perusing them. Have a wonderful Pink Saturday!
Sweetie

ellen b said...

These are great BJ! I did houses this week too. It's always fun to come upon a pink house. have a great weekend.

Miss Rhea said...

Great Post !! I think the pink and white Gingerbread one was made just for me. lol !! :)

Happy Pink Saturday !!

Angel said...

Wow, love all those pink houses! Reminds me of the John Melloncamp song when he sings, "pretty pink houses for you and me." Thanks for the fun post to start off my day!
~Angel

suesueb said...

wonderful pink houses but that bridge is really something else!! have a happy pink week.

Cori G. said...

HI BJ,
I LOVE ALL YOUR PINK HOUSES! Some of them look like they're from one of those old turn of the century Baptist convention camps. Whew that took a while. The town is somewhere in New Jersey and they have a Chinese lantern festival each year. Do you know the name of the little town. So much pink loveliness here that I hate to leave, but I must.
Have a wonderful pink weekend my friend.
XO Cori

Charlotte said...

I have never seen so many pretty pink houses or so many not so pretty pink houses. Many years ago we were living in the church parsonage and it needed to be painted. They let us pick the color since we lived there. Since pink was my favorite color we decided on that. Big mistake. It looked like Pepto Bismol. It didn't stay that way too long, it was repainted. I'll have to look and see if I have a picture when it was pink. Thank you for sharing all of these wonderful pink pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing them - even the not so pretty ones.

GABRIELA DELWORTH said...

OMG!!! You stole the show!
Those shocking PINK Allstars and tiara are mine!

Morning, BJ!

LOVE all the "Little Pink Houses for you and me" that you've shared today. (John Mellencamp would be proud! LOL)

My DD's favorite color used to be pink...ah, the good 'ole days. Now it's BLACK! Ugh...

Neabear said...

Interesting pink houses and a pink bridge too! Where are all these houses? I need to take a closer look around my area and see what is pink around here. Happy Saturday!

g said...

wow, what a tour! Wouldn't it be fun if all these houses were in the same neighborhood!

thanks for posting about the Nielson's.

Thanks for sharing.
