Its Pink alright..
well, last week I was thinking ahead. I photographed some pink treasures, sort of a walk through childhood so to speak, but I have to be honest.
We adore nostalgia, romance and fairy tales and all around here,
but our pink this week has been of another sort...
yes, it is allergy season and how. Everybody is a sneezing, wheezing, coughing mess this year. So it has been a week of pink, pink benadryl, pink tylenol, pink ice pops (not too bad really) and pink books on the couch.
In the spirit of pink saturday hosted by Beverly
We'd like to offer these recommendations for the young pink lovers in your life:
Fancy Nancy by Jane O'Connor
we were introduced to Fancy Nancy through good friends. Nancy is fabulous! She adores accessories and all things French. Illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser, the illustrations are so much fun.
Pinkalicious by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann
last year "Pinkalicious" was the favorite book of one of the kids in my preschool class. She brought it in for us to read and I liked it so much I bought my own copy to take home. My girls and even my boys, love this book. The illustrations are fun and the story is silly.
This book came to us as a birthday present from our dear friend Sydney. Also illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser and I love the queen!
and did you know? Angelina Ballerina has her very own Wikipedia page! Oh la la!
and her own PBS page! Angelina Ballerina on pbs.org
So if you are feeling sniffly, we recommend a nice cup of peppermint tea, a dose of benadryl, a pink blanky and a good book!
