Think Pink

Pink isn't just a color, it's an attitude!
~ Miley Cyrus

Variations of the theme of pink to brighten and lighten your Moon day. Today's contribution is part of PoppyTalks Spring Color Week.

Image above is the Illumination of Lyra created by Greg Spalenka, below is a photo illustration of Lyra liquid botanical perfume with her hand made crochet pouch by Martha of TwoKnit.

"I don't think I will ever get tired of wearing pink."
~ Emma Bunton

Here I am in the early 1960's, perhaps 1964, wearing my little pink dress and sitting on the balcony of my Aunt Elsa's apartment in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

"The tones of gray, pale turquoise and pink will prevail."
~ Christian Dior

Pictured above, Lyra as a solid natural perfume in a pink crochet pouch.

The pink in my palette is based on my skin tone, which is a pale dusty rose pink. I also have a pink that moves into coral tones, like the illumination on the first image by Greg.

I used a pink, textured Italian paper to make the folded packages for the liquid perfume samples and 1 gram bottles. Below is Greg and I getting married, I'm wearing one of my very favorite jackets purchased while in fabulous Vancouver. It's a textured pink brocade with some lace, a definitive poet-artist item with a vintage look.

"A woman should be pink and cuddly for a man."
~ Jayne Mansfield
