Colourful Friday- Pink.

Hello,

Welcome to Colourful Friday. This weeks colour is Pink. There certainly was no trouble finding pink  here at Kainga. After all we have a garden full of Pink roses. Though the winds of the past couple of days have left them looking a little worn out. Enjoy.

Roses at Kainga

 I had a great time looking around the home for a bit of Pink.
 Remember this "funky" rose that bloomed here last year. It is a freak of nature that occurs every now and again.
 Lots of pink embroidery cotton  giant ric-rac which I must use one day, a Mother's Day card I can't get rid of and my favourite Pink cup.
 I just love this photo, wouldn't it make a lovely  photo card.
 David gave me these two Pink boxes last year for Christmas.
 I made this Pink  cushion a few years back. Gotta love anything with roses.

Now I am hosting the next couple of Fridays so that means I get to choose next weeks colour. It will be Lavender. I am sure you will find lots of pictures of Lavender maybe you have some Lavender growing in your garden. So be on the lookout for all things pale purple.

Happy Colourful Friday.

Hi Bev.
Your garden must be stunning at this time of the year. I do love the rose with 2 shades of pink.
Your collection of patchwork and embroidery goodies is looking lovely in pink. And the two pink boxes are so sweet!
Enjoy your pink Friday.

Rushes to find lavender embroidery cotton stashed before I had children for all the projects I was going to make after I had children and had all that free time, before I discovered blogging!
