Springy Pinkness!

Happy PINK Saturday everyone!
   I know that some of you are still under the influence of cold, dank weather but here in Charleston, Spring is busting out all over! We've had several sunny days in the 80's already. My oldest "Tiny Bubble" is home for Spring break so today we took a stroll downtown and did some shopping, had a yummy lunch then went for a walk along the harbor. It was a perfect day!
   I thought I would share some of the Springy PINKness happening around our house. First, this was my Easter decoration splurge for the year.
I saw it at Pier One and I just had to have it, I couldn't resist. Every time I looked at it, it made me smile and then it got to the point where I couldn't take my eyes off of it!
It is fairly tall, right at 2 feet and I haven't decided yet where I am going to display it. It's a toss up between the Sunroom and my kitchen garden window. 

I love all the little characters and how they are all balancing on each other. 

Next up, the large pots on our front porch.
I usually choose soft pinks and lavenders but this year I decided to change it up and go with hot PINK, Orange and Yellow. I'm loving this color combo!

Each pot contains a Topiary Hot PINK Hibiscus,

 a hot PINK Geranium, and an Orange Geranium, 

Yellow Marigolds, Swiss Chard, and Yellow Nemesia.

Please stop by How Sweet the Sound and say hi to Beverly, our host each week for PINK Saturday!
Have a great weekend, xxoo Nan


    Your PINK SAT. is bursting with colour and spunk.
    Glad you had fun with your sweet daughter. They are beautiful.
    I know you'll find just the right spot that that 2ft. cutie.
    Happy PS.

  2. Your Easter decoration is so cute! And the flowers are beautiful! I bet it was a lovely day walking in downtown Charleston! Love that city.

  3. I will have to run over to Pier 1 and see their decor. Your flowers are so lovely. Yes, we were under the snow all day - yuck. Give me your lovely climate! (Now why do I live where I do - oh, yeah, a job!)

  4. Happy Pink Saturday!

    Huge fun! Love them!

  6. Dontcha just love pier one? I was just there and bought three of the sweetest little ornies! I would have bought more, but then I really would need another tree!
    Your flowers are so pretty. I cant wait to plant some window boxes and clean up the yard some. It looks so blaah right now. of course we still have SNOW on the ground and its only about 30 degrees!

  12. I am so jealous of your flowers too!! Stop by and see Why!

    Love what you bought at Per one!! So cute and it does make one smile!!


  13. Oh I think I would die to have a day in the 80's! Winter is still hanging on here. Your pots are gorgeous and I do love the color combination. I wish I could start planting *sigh*

    Happy PS,

  14. Totally daring my friend! We were hoping to climb to the high 70's but a cold front came in and it's really low today. So much for my springtime planting! :(

    Happy Pink Saturday my friend. You inspire me!


  15. Oh Nan, I can almost feel the warmth and smell the flowers! Lucky you, to be having such beautiful weather. There were snowflakes flying around this morning here!
    I can see why you had to have those cuties from Pier 1! I haven't been in that store in years, and had no idea they had such cute things. I guess I better go check them out!
    Happy PS!

  16. Awesome! I am RUNNING to Pier 1! How fun! Happy Pink Saturday!!

  17. Love the Spring air over here. Lucky you! I am ti waiting for Spring. Getting excited though as the days are longer and a bit warmer. HPS! Anne

  18. I thoroughly enjoyed your post today. I am not big on decorating much anymore, when it is just me. I do like your little Easter chicks. If the rest of your yard is any indication of your porch, it is truly lovely. I love the way you have the pots staggered.

  19. ummmm...if you heard tires squealing...that was me tearing off to Pier One!!!!! HPS!
