First Week of Summer Pink Saturday


I think I've captured your attention!  

 
I really enjoy writing this blog and am rarely at a loss for ideas for posts, but every once in awhile, I'm stuck. Today was one of those days. I wanted to do a Pink Saturday post and nothing that I had in a draft quite worked. But on my way home from the gym I drifted in a housewares store that isn't a usual stop for me. It's high-end and generally out of my budget. But I saw big sale signs and decided to stop in. Even with sales, the store was still out of my budget, but I found my inspiration for Pink Saturday. I found the really big inflatable flamingo.


There are other pool floats, but none of the others were on display in all of their splendor. I was also taken by the duck and Moby Dick, but they all would be fun pool toys. Of course I don't have a pool and I'm not even sure I have friends who have pools, so this was strictly "just looking." Nonetheless it was lots of fun and the perfect solution to my Pink Saturday post quandary.

Which of the floats would be your choice? 

Here's a better look at some of the other floats and more summer fun ideas.


While we're on the subject of pink summer fun I was taken with both the flamingo candles and the summer ice cream cone candles on the right. 
 
I'm off on a little adventure tomorrow morning. I'm not sure if I'll have much computer time or connectivity -- going close to off the grid -- but if I do there will be pictures on Facebook and a post here.
 
As ever, thanks for visiting and have a sweet, sweet first weekend of summer!

Methinks I need that yellow rubber ducky! Sure, there are others more sophisticated, but his cheer's so endearing. :)

The flamingo is stunning, but...Rubber ducky, you're the one! I think I watched too much Sesame Street when my kids were growing up. LOL I enjoyed your blog.
