"I love the color pink.
The softest blush of pink,
baby girl pink
bubblegum pink of the 1930s
hot pink of the 60s.
For me, pink represents calmness, sweetness, softness, whimsy,
all things girly and the persevering strength
These words are written on the inside cover of my altered book
titled "Pink" pictured above.
I collect things that are pink.
Inside the pink drawer of the button box:
And I have a thing for the 1930s and 40s. I was born in 1949
and somehow those eras became part of my heart
Pink makes me feel pretty.
When I was about 12, I had a pair of pink ballet flats
that I wore until they fell off my feet.
I put cardboard on the inside when the holes in the
soles appeared and painted them with pink
shoe polish so the cracks in the leather
didn't show as badly.
I'm on a mission to find another pair.
