Like Disco (Pink) Lemonade

10 points if you can name that one hit wonder...(Answer at the bottom).

Anyone who tells you you can't like pink and be a tough cookie, LIED!
Lately, this color has been catching my eye more often than not. So many shades...from vintage pink to fuschia. It looks almost good enought to eat, YUM!

We'll I picked out a few and put them in the amazingly good treasury. I'm not one to brag, but it is an AWESOME treasury.

I'm going to pick a few that are my favorites.

Let's see...
All You Need is Love Pillow by HoneyPieDesign
Yes my friends, all you need is love.

This cutie pillow is perfect for a little girls room or a room that needs a little more girly touch. I, that's not, I got it, I LOVE this pillow. Take a visit at HoneyPieDesign's shop. You can see a lot of work and detail goes into each piece. They even have tote bags. How cool is that!? You can't beat handmade stuff. You can even custom order a piece if you'd like. I'll take mines just the way it is here.

Did you take a shower this morning? I hope you did, if not, then that must of been one heck of a hangover! Anywho, for those of you who did, what soap did you use? Was it handmade? Did the honey in the soap come from a beekeeper in the Bohemian countryside? Did the extra virgin olive oil that is oh so good for your skin come from Greece? NO!? Oh, well, at least is the glycerin Swiss based? NO!? Oh my? Well then you really didn't shower now did you?
Don't worry, I have the solution for you, here go to DRAGONSOAPS and for your sake pick up something that will actually clean you, smell good, good for the environment AND support handmade!
Lucky for me, they are local. I know, I know, I'm super duper lucky to live on the other side of the pond and so close to DragonSoaps. Haters gonna hate! HA!

If you are cooking in this, then you are doing it right!
I need to get me one of these. The artist actually designed it to accentuate your curves. Have you seen those aprons that run flat and as soon as you put it on you can't help put feel either like a lazy sausage or Cinderella pre-Prince Charming.
Besides, you don't want to turn into that lady that no longer cares what she is wearing. I know you like to look stylish and fab even while cooking a 5 course dinner. Go ahead and indulge in that apple martini. You deserve it girl.
You burned the roast? The kitchen is on fire? That's okay because when you call the firemen to come rescue you, you'll still look gorgeous!
For only $28.00, you can't beat it, but really, you can't put a price on your beauty.

Thank you once again for stopping by. Please leave some loving to all the shops featured here. Also, remember to support handmade. Buying homemade you support the artists and creators directly, you are owning something that is one of a kind and not supporting corporations who, unfortunately, no longer care or like to be bothered with the 'human touch', it's just about the dollar.
