BookExpo America Pink Saturday

Our Pink Saturday fun this week is literally pink! My photographs all include the color pink and are all from my visit to Chicago. I was on the lookout for pink at BookExpo America to share with you.

I found these two cuties at the Storey Publishing booth. They were examples from the book, Crochet Taxidermy. I'm not particularly crafty, but for the many citizens of Buttercupland who are, these would be fun to make and to display.  

Though the only pink here is a little bit in the label, I thought these cookies were too cute to omit from this post. I broke my pastry abstinence and enjoyed a delicious sugar cookie.  

I had the good fortune to meet a number of authors at BookExpo America, including YA author Laini Taylor. I don't generally read a lot of Young Adult fantasy, but her new novel -- which she is signing for me -- Strange the Dreamer -- looks great and I will definitely be reading it. I love her pink hair and it looks so terrific on her. Though I've been thinking about a fun hair color, I'm not sure I'd look as good as Laini does. 

My plan for Saturday morning in Chicago was to spend the time walking and enjoying the sights. Good plan, but the weather was less than cooperative. The temperature was in the forties and I was not dressed to do a lot of walking in practically winter weather. I took refuge in Nordstrom's where I found this cute t-shirt. Yes, I dream of ice cream, waking and sleeping!

I'll be back later this week with posts about my adventures at BookExpo. I'm still sorting through my pictures and editing them. As ever, thanks for visiting and have a great week!

Those crochet critters are adorable!
Since there's little chance I'll be taking up crafting, I was disappointed to see I couldn't buy them ready-made.

'Looking forward to reading more about BookExpo!

Hi Carol, Catching up on your posts today after computer glitches. The book expo would be so much fun. I love the author's really pink hair and wish I could be that bold. I wonder if my pets would recognize me with pink hair??? lol
I love a good sugar cookie, especially with a cup of coffee.
Hope you are doing well. Have an enjoyable afternoon. xo Mildred
