No, I'm not into having a pink kitchen. Unfortunately I do have pink kitchen counter tops and in excellent condition. The woman who owned my condo before the previous owner was into pink, mint and burgundy - everywhere! My baby sister thought black and white damask wallpaper would look cool, and it would - but you can see the kitchen from my livingroom, so I had to pass. I have a sister who is a brilliant decorator who will be helping me remodel my kitchen. I'll have to show before and after pictures, but it will be dramatic, and on a low budget. But if you do like the idea of a pink kitchen, here are some accessories just for you! Really fabulous items from Etsy - naturally!!
I remember this recipe box growing up. I'll have to check with my sisters, but either my mom or her mother had this recipe box. Being older is fun when you find vintage items on Etsy from your childhood!
Taken while window shopping in Paris, "Ladurée my Love" is full of lush pastels and scrumptious little macaroons and other delights. Ladurée is one of the most beautiful stores we have ever seen, and one of the greatest inspirations in our art. The colorful confetti adds a playful touch and reminds us of the delicate sweets that are waiting inside.
Ladurée brings to New York its highly popular Macarons, displayed in the most beautiful gift boxes, along with its collection of chocolates, ice cream macarons, candies, teas, perfumed candles and fragrances. This Shop on Madison Ave. is the only Laduree shop in the States. by Anita Huber
What I wouldn't do to be able to wear this dress, and have a place to wear it. I was looking up vintage cocktail dresses when I ran across this beauty--just stunning!
Some days I wonder why I don't dress up more--lack of time or motivation? One of my grandmothers use to wear dresses daily, and always with a brooch or piece of jewelry, hose and sensible shoes, and she raised 3 boys! Yes, times have changed, but I'd like to believe that we can get back to that place again, as least some of time.

If your parents told you monsters don't live in the closet or under the bed - they lied. Some kids have never seen these monsters, but too many have. You would think most of the kids would be scared, and they are - a little bit, but more often they are braver than any knight in shining armor. One monster is actually a very large family with crazy names; like acute lymphoblastic leukemia, neuroblastoma, hepatoblastoma - but they all have the same last name, CANCER. Children are facing this cancer monster as if it's a fire-breathing dragon (for real), and they have more courage in their fragile bodies than you have in your little finger. So please, give them some weapons to help them fight off these monsters.
Regardless of which group you pick to help kill these monsters, please join the battle and keep kids safe from monsters!
