Pink Houses

Today I'm joining Trish for Pink and Green Thursday. My great Aunt Hazel was such an amazing woman. I fondly remember visiting her during the summers as a child and how much fun I had at her house. She and my Uncle Paul never had children. As a result, they doted on my mother and me and spoiled us. In my memory, we had the most "elegant" breakfasts served on real china with juice glasses. She made everything special.

Her house was a child's paradise. There was a huge yard and a beautiful fish pond in the back yard with koi. But the best part about the house and my strongest memory is that the house was pink. Gorgeous, pale pink stucco. Absolutely dreamy.

So today, I'll share some images of pink houses with you to remember my great Aunt Hazel. Enjoy! (images)














Enjoy your beautiful Thursday! What are you doing today?

  1. I like the pink stucco. I was disappointed when they took the pink stucco off of Montpelier in Virginia. Of course, no one asked me.

  3. The pink door (guessing that it's in Greece) made me smile, but I was charmed by the hearts on the fence and the custom-color VW bug. Thanks for sharing such lovely photos.

  5. I like the idea of pink homes, pink shutters, pink doors, etc. As long as they are a tasteful pink color. Personsonally, not sure about painting a Brownstown hot pink [2nd image down] ....that might be a little to much for me! If that was in Chicago or Boston, I think my neighbors would kill me! HA! HA! Great post!!

  7. I love this post! I've always wanted a pink beach house. One of my favorite children's books is called The Pink House by the Seashore. I love your blog!

  8. Such a fun post! I have thought about doing a Pink and Green Thursday on home, actually have a ton of pictures saved, just haven't gotten around to doing it.

    Also, your post from yesterday inspired me. My sister and I talked about DAR sometime in the past couple of years, about getting paperwork, etc. all together, and never have. After reading your post I emailed my sis and said "We have got to get on top of things!!" Emailed my aunt, the geneology expert in our family, who promptly emailed all sorts of information that I need to start the process. Anwyay, a HUGE thank you for reminding me to get the DAR ball rolling!

  9. I love to see pink houses when we're at the beach - we stayed in a pastel-colored community at the beach this summer and everything looked lovely! Like a collection of sherbet ice cream!
