It's a pink Christmas

 The pink tree went up yesterday in the entry.

Er, doesn't everyone do pink? It's just so, colorful.
I have to admit, I didn't even consult the men in my life about this, but I figure Drew can pile the mail up next to whatever color tree I choose.
Note the flamingo wire sculpture holding the poinsettia. I am watering the flowers, but they are dropping leaves like crazy already. It'll be a Charlie Brown Poinsettia.
The flamingo came from a home show one year. Imagine, DH toting it around the whole convention center while we looked at a thousand roofing or siding displays. Actually people stopped us and asked which booth it came from.

 I think the red and pink look smashing together, so I hung up the chandelier crystal hearts on the tree this year.

Hey,  Sherri D, look where the flamingo tin showed up! This was a gift from my friend Sherri blog is here
You've seen the pink poodle, but the squirrel is Cole's and I'm not sure how he feels about my use of it. The squeaker still works after all.
The tree needs a cute little quilted skirt.
Do you know any quilters?
 I usually put an elaborate garland on the banisters, but haven't felt like dragging them out this year. You know how some years you go all out, and some years get a bit less?? Anyone out there like me, that way?

The hearts came from IKEA one year by the way. You just never know where you'll find a treasure. We also found the hanging light display, you can just see it hanging on the wall next to the stairs, at IKEA one year. We leave it's cheerful self up all year, and it makes the best ever night light. I dread the passing of these bulbs as like so many things, it is no longer available.

Last but certainly not least was this Christmas display seen in the 'hood last weekend. I am a nut for flamingos so this caught my eye.

  1. No, everyone does not do pink, but I'm glad you do! It looks great ... very comfortable next to the pink flamingo. Pat

  2. I have the same pink tree from a few years ago! I am a flamingo girl too so I love your display!

  3. Love it ! Fun!
    I'll have to see if the outdoor Christmas decor is showing up around town!
    The decor I did was at Buitenzorg. Something festive for all the volunteers!
    The coconut cookies were fine! Didn't crumble! Idid learn that there is a big difference between coconut flour and grated coconut in such recipes!
    Take care,

  4. I have to admit I haven't seen pink but......I like it!! Thanks for sharing.
