In Honor of pink

PINK.
This reminds me of the 60's like the blocks I made recently, and the mention of spirograph.

It's winter, and when looking out at nature I see a lot of neutrals like white, gray, brown.
When I saw this sweater from a distance at Lord and Taylor I knew... I knew it was coming home with me.

I remember fluffy sweaters over cigar straight leg pants on chic girls in the 60's. I had the slippers.

This sweater is soft. The color changes my mood from blah to yipee.
There are people who do not like pink... but think about this..in 1947 the term Hot Pink was invented by Schiaparelli. I like hot pink and magenta.  In 1897 cotton candy was invented. I ate lots of that in my youth.

I even had access to a kiddie cotton candy machine for my birthday once. I was in heaven.

Funny how colors affect us, stimulate memories, make us feel chic or energized or happy.
Cotton candy was invented in 1897 by William Morrison and John C. Wharton, candy makers from Nashville, Tennessee, USA. They invented a device that heated sugar in a spinning bowl that had tiny holes in it. It formed a treat that they originally called “Fairy Floss.” As the bowl spun around, the caramelized sugar was forced through the tiny holes, making feathery candy that melts in the mouth. -Enchanted Learning.com

Snowzilla is melting today in the relative warmth. Dirt is emerging.
The poodle wants to return to his perch. The pink flamingos are standing in snow. I am wearing a fuzzy soft big pink sweater and painted my fingernails to match. Ain't color grand?
