Does Pink Make You Happy?

While trying to come up with a name for this next ensemble, I kept on thinking how happy all of this pink made me feel; hence, the name was born.  Does pink make you happy too?

There are some strong opinions out there about pink.  It seems that you either love it or hate it.  When my daughter was in grade school I spent about 6 years as a volunteer art teacher for the first graders.  I heard many stories from the little ones about how their moms either loved pink or hated it.  If their moms hated pink, not a speck of pink could be used for their project.  It made me smile to hear such strong convictions about the color pink coming from these little ones.

I love pink!  I especially love pink for our dolls, and I love to wear pink in all shades.  I think I have more pink fabric than any other color.

Here is my Little Darling, Lucy, modeling “Pink Happiness”.  I hope you feel happy too, looking at my smiley faced Lucy in her new pink ensemble.

There are very light sky blue flowers in this print.  If you look closely you can pick them out, the camera didn’t catch them very well.

Lucy has a bouquet, just for you!

This and That

Thank you all so much for the input on Penny’s best look, that was fun.  That post is here in case you didn’t see it.  Here are the results:

1. Giselle very blonde bob

2. Giselle brunette bob

3. Raven long carrot

4. Tomboy auburn curly

5. Hannah brunette

Gina’s favorite wig, the brunette Hannah wig actually got no votes.  I guess Gina doesn’t have to worry about it being snatched from her.  A bob (in either color) seems to be the favorite style for Penny.  I forgot to show you Penny wearing a Monique Bubbles (bob style) carrot wig which looks equally cute on her.  I think so anyway.

Have you heard that the groundhog did not see his shadow, so it will be an early spring, 6 weeks to go?  Maybe he is right; I saw a robin last week and we had thunderstorms yesterday.  Not that 6 weeks is such a short length of time to wait for spring to arrive…  I wish it would arrive NOW.  I love spring, but this time of year can be nice too, sitting in front of the cozy fire with my knitting and a cup of hot cocoa, coffee, or tea.  Sometimes I need to remind myself to stay in the moment and not rush my life away.  So yes, I will enjoy the rest of winter.  🙂

I snapped a photo of my works-in-progress today.  The ensemble with the pink sweater for the Little Darlings just needs buttons on the sweater and a bracelet made, then done.  Yay!  I’m not sure who to put it on, Lucy or Gina.  Hmmm…

Bye for now!  Thanks for stopping by!
