More Pink

What a hat to celebrate Valentine's Day! (14th Street and 4th Avenue.)

Yesterday evening the Empire State Building was lit up.
Why is it pink, red and white? Robert asks
He takes this photo anyway........

At 5:30 yesterday afternoon, it was naturally astoundingly rose from the rays of the setting sun.
How romantic....
Beverly of How Sweet the Sound often kindly invites me to join Pink Saturday.
 Usually New York isn't the pinkest of cities.... today is the exception. 
Go here to see more participants.

These pink beaded animals live in ABC carpet but they originally came from Africa.

I think this one is looking for love.

On Broadway and 20th Streets they have wrapped an entire building in a sort of plastic skin.
Wierd -- but definitely half pink.

Such pink cakes in Zaro's!


  1. Oh dear Elizabeth, I must have that chapaeu en rose...may your inner child be delighted today and everyday! <3

    Btw I had to contact Amazon for my order (your book)...they are delaying past the point of patience...I have four books that are up to three and a half months late.

  2. I love those African beaded animals - and I am quite partial to that pink cake!

  3. I laughed when I read that NY is not a pink city normally -- how true! -- but you definitely found it everywhere! Havea great V Day yourself!

  4. I love all your pinks for today but I like the pink cake the best!

  5. The older I get the more I like PINK.....

  6. Wonderful pix .. yummy looking cake .. voice is still not working but I do look forward to catching up when you get back!

  7. Happy Pink Saturday and Happy Valentine's Day Elizabeth!


  8. I love all the pink ... and the green, as in the stem on the cake rose, and of course in the name Walgreen's.

    My teachers taught me that green was the color of the heart chakra. It's healing but also allows one to take 'the next step' - whatever that means.

    Pink is the color of your love for yourself, or so my teachers said. So pink up, girlfriend! Happy Valentine's Day!

  9. More happy Valentine's wishes for you too!!

  10. Why it's the Big Pink Apple! Lovely - especially the delicious looking cakes, of course - but I love the pink chapeau - it screams BE MINE!

    Happy V Day!

  11. We can always count on you to find the magic of the city. Just like you did in Marrakesh.
    Pink is definitely in the air!
    Happy Valentine's Day my dear Elizabeth!
