Playing with Pink

On New years day 2004 my then fiance and I moved into our first home. I was working at Michaels Arts & Crafts full time and was 6 months pregnant. Being at work all day with the Christmas decorations was nice but made me lust for the Shabby Romantic Cottage ornaments and decor. When I had Matt come up to work with me for customer appreciation so we could pick out our Christmas decorations together for our new house we quickly realized that our tastes wern't exactly on the same page. I wanted all white lights and pink and pastel colored ornaments.

He could not understand why anyone would not use colored lights and he wanted bright red and blue ornaments. So we decided we would by one tree and 2 sets of decorations. We would switch back and forth every other year. Last year we had a Shabby Chic Christmas as you can see in my vague posts from last year. So this year while taking out our Christmas decorations I mourned the pretty pink glass balls and shabby chic stockings. I had to set up a photo shoot to rejoice in my pretty decorations I won't see much of this year.

It's such a shame. They would have looked so pretty hanging from the chandeliers. I'm sure the red and blue will be pretty too. Next tueday is our designated putting up the tree and decorations day so I'll be showing you next week.

Hi Angela,
I so understand how you feel! Sigh. The pink is so pretty. I love your new trims. I see you haven't put them up in your shop, yet. Would you let me know when you do? I love coming over to see what you've been up to. xoxo

I just love the look of your pink decorations. I know my 3 men would probably fall over if I tried putting pink up! I told my husband (after we went from a traditional real tree to artificial) that I wanted an aluminum one and he just shrugged - no way!!

Oh well, at least your rotating!

Love the new tags too!!

Those are so pretty! I love them. My husband doesn't really get to choose but I'm pretty sure if I tried to have a pink Christmas, he'd freak out! :)
