Patriotic Pink

Hello my friends,
I know what you're thinking. . .pink is not a patriotic color.  Normally, I would agree with you, but somehow; it works!

When it came time to pull out my patriotic décor I wondered what I would do in our living room.
You might remember that I painted the floor white and added a pink rug.
While working on my friends Aunt Bunnies estate I came across this fun U.S. Navy pillow.
Notice how there are touches of pink in the corners?
That got me thinking, that pink might just work.

Then I remembered this small quilt I made quite a few years ago.
Perfect for tying in a little more pink!

Isn't it funny how one thing leads to another?  Then I noticed that the quilt top that I had draped in my chippy laundry basket had bits of pink as well.

So I added some pink books to my Independence vignette.

This display is my ode to the signing of the Declaration.
I bought the parchment documents in Charleston while vacationing there 9 years ago.
So, what do you think, does pink seem just a little bit more patriotic?  :)
I will be sharing with these fun parties:

You are right, it works! I love your military souvenier mom had several of these from my brothers who were in the USAF and they graced the back of our couch as well! Happy July 4th!

I absolutely love all of your great stuff for decorating. You must have a warehouse filled with seasonal things. You're always coming up with something new.
Happy 4th of July!

Being that pink is my favorite color, I think it belongs in all holiday decorations! You've done it perfectly!

Of course pinks works, after all add a little white to red and what do you get?? =) Though, not just anyone could make it work. You, lovely Jann, as always have come up with the most delightful of vignettes. LURVE your US Navy cushion!!
