I wanna live in a PINK HOUSE...

Because I wanted to play in
PINK SATURDAY
and
SUNDAY FAVORITES,
I am bringing back one of my favorite and fun PINK posts...
oh, YES...i do love PINK, just as all of you out there...
especially our sweet

BEVERLY at HOW SWEET THE SOUND
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 pink 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 stinkin'  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 !

check it out....their little picket fence is even PINK...
I laughed out loud when I saw the PARKING METER in front of this vintage home....
just seemed like there should be a HITCHING post for the horse drawn carriages...
what can one say about THIS one other than if , all at once, i inherited it,
i would faint and fall over dead !!!
A PINK BEAUTY, INDEED.

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 these 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..."

now this PINKIE 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....NOT my favorite, at all...
but it IS pink. :)

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

OH my all those pink beautiful houses. Some are really very special and others I wouldn't want to live in. LOL Happy pink Saturday

Dixie said...

I'd love a pink house too... but I don't think my Ricky would let that one happen... unless it was in Florida or the Bahamas or maybe the Mexican Pacific coast... but not in S. Texas... he'd get way too much "guffaw!" from his buds...

Happy Pink Saturday BJ! hugs. Dixie

Cindy Adkins said...

Oh my gosh--what beautiful pink houses!!! I think some are in New Orleans!!

The second house looks just like a doll house my grand daughter had... I swear!

Strange, but all those pink house made me kinda hungry.

Vee said...

Such pretty pink houses...well, most of them. Not sure why you were showing the fugly ones, but perhaps for comparison's sake? :D

I grew up in a pink house and, though it's not been pink for decades, it is often described as "the pink house." My mother needed some major cheering. ;>

Beth said...

Hi BJ! What a fun post! I love the pink house with the gingerbread that was identified by your reader as being in Cape May. The house that you say looks like an aging movie star lives in, looks alot like Charleston, SC style to me. My house is plain old WHITE, but you know what? It's mine, and LOVE lives here. Enjoyed seeing these homes but I'll keep mine!

My goodness, all of those pink houses are sweet for sure! I really enjoyed checking them out! Sweet "in the pink" information:)

This post made me want a strawberry milkshake:)

Have a blessed day dear BJ, HUGS!

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

I love wearing pink myself. It is a color that is very calming to me. As your post has put me in a calm, serene mood. Still, loaded with fun. I especially enjoyed the "Hansel and Gretel" cottage. I could live there...'Ya, right" says Bud. LOL

Most enjoyable post BJ.

With the impending fizzling tropical storm yesterday and not being online much because of preparing for the worst that never came, I'm now trying to catch up on visiting those that visited me. Thanks for taking the time to leave a great comment: MUCH APPRECIATED!!

Have a blessed weekend.

Here's my Saturday Link: TWO'S COMPANY -THREE'S A CROWD

"Auntie" said...

I am happy to report that our middle son and his family, really lived in a little old fashioned PINK house, for a while.

Trouble was, it is tiny, and they needed more room and had to move on. But it is still there, here in town, and still PINK. :-)

Long Live PINK Love!

Pat said...

I love the pink high tops! Happy PS.

Emily said...

Robin said...

oh my that looks so yummy....
hmmm....
Ha! You had me laughing with those ugly houses and as for the fan and lantern house, I think it a bit much as well. But you know, anyone who resides in any of these home has to be a kindred spirit.
Oh and BTW....that huge one that you thought was faded, looks to me (when popped up to the original size) to be a cut marble or stone of some sort (not faded paint).
Thanks for sharing all your found pinks....been fun.
Have a pinkishly beautiful weekend.

I think I'd like a pink house on a tropical island - may I have one of yours, please?

NanaDiana said...

My one-time boyfriend when I was young always wanted us to run away and get married and live in a pink house by the ocean. He is married now and lives in the Mid-South and I am here in the Mid-West...so much for my PINK HOUSE dream! xo Diana

SavannahGranny said...

Beautiful and fun post. I never knew there were so many pink houses. Thanks for the fanciful tour and dessert. Ginger :)

Sweet Tea said...

I can remember living in a pink house for a while when I was a kid. It seems a bit extreme to me now, but as a kid it never occured to me that I didn't know anyone else who lived in a pink house...These photos are some beautiful "pinks"! Your Blog is always such a Happy read!!

Marlis said...

cute houses. Love how you pulled all these together.. even the really ugly one.. LOL.. happy sunday, xo marlis

Cass @ That Old House said...

LOVING the pink. So glad that Debbie in NJ knew that was a NJ house -- as soon as I saw it, I thought, "Hey that looks like a Cape May house!" and it is.
We Jersey girls know our pink.
:-)
Adorable post. We painted our house white in June, and I wanted a PINK door ... I lost.
Oh well ... maybe next time!
Cass

I'm loving all of the pink!!! But I don't think my husband would want to live in a pink house.

Thanks for being a part of Seasonal Sundays. So sorry it's taken me so long to visit.
