Pink up your day!

Trust that little voice in your head that says “Wouldn’t it be interesting if…”; And then do it.

Some happy inspiration in case your skies look grey, like ours here. It's a soft and mellow mood, windy, rainy - much like autumn. Am having some time off this week, being at home, working on my paintings, getting tuned into color. What are the shades you like best a the moment?

Photos via: be splendid 


  1. great photos...inspiring colors...
    we have humid hot weather. we need some rain to cool us off!
    i'm liking dark purply blues and warm colors-i think i'm mentally wishing for autumn :)

  2. What a cute pink drink. I like white, grey, oak and a little red for some strange reason *smile*. Have a great day.


  3. Pink always perks me up! Such a pretty post and I just love that last photo, Martina. :) xoxo

  4. Martina: These are fabulous.Can I have of the pink drink please? Those stilettos resemble baby giraffes with tall legs and slender long necks:)

  9. Hi Martina,
    I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying some time off. I hope you take photos of your newest creations and share them with us. My favorite color at the moment is turquoise.


  10. Hi Martina,
    I am loving all of the colors here today! Pink is a favorite of mine, for sure. I have been displaying black and white photos as of late in our home. It adds a very vintage and old-time feel. I have been watching, Wives and Daughters (on Netflix), I am smitten with the very palest blue room shown in that series with all of their furnishings as well!

    I am so glad you are having some time for yourself to rest, and paint. Very good for the heart and soul! Enjoy!!

    Happy week to you sweet friend!

    I am so happy to come back to see YOUR BRIGHT heart. Though your environment is gray and rainy, your heart never seems to be sad. I love that about YOU and as for color, AQUA is always on my heart.
