Pink Houses..

Last week I posted pictures of the tulip festival
and one picture of a pink house.
 I found many friends.. with a shared love...
of Pink Houses!

I am a hugh house lookie loo,
I love to go for drives just to do my..
curbside gawking :-)

So while I was in Tacoma this week,
 I spied a few pink ladies to share..

(click photos to enlarge)

This sweet Pink four square is up for sale
a lot of older homes are for sale this spring..

I love a barn style house...
they look so spacious.

Here is a side view...
it has a beautiful bay window on the stairway,
wouldn't a little window seat in the bay be sweet?

And...  a grand painted lady,

Love the entry..
and the detailed paint on the spindles.

In the downtown area I spied a cupcake shop,
with the cutest pink bicycle parked by it's front door!
Completely perfect, 
with streaming tassels and a basket of pink flowers!

Today I am joining Pink Saturday

Thanks for stopping by,

Hi Bella,
Wonderful pinks; love the houses! I enjoy looking at houses myself. The bike is cute too. Thanks for sharing your pinks and Happy Pink Saturday weekend.


Cindy said...

I would love to live in any of those pink houses and if I had that pink bike I would ride it all over the place! Love your pinks!

Sarah said...

Nothing like a Pink Victorian Lady. I use to love driving by all those beautiful homes in No. Tacoma.

If you go to the Daffidol Parade on Saturday be sure to take some pictures!

Talk to you soon ;)

I tried to get our house painted a shade of white that was barely pink and almost got away with it, till my husband heard the name of the color. I can't remember what it was, but it sounded pinky. He didn't notice by looking at the sample, but the name gave it away!

Yikes, I know how to spell daffodil... really I do :0)

Kathleen said...

They are pretty to look at..but I don't think I would want to live in a pink house! :)

Regina said...

Great captures Bella.
Happy Pink Saturday.
Have a lovely weekend.

Happy Pink Saturday to you!
It is a beautiful sunny Spring day
in Upstate, New York. I will take the barn shaped Pink house - I would be very happy there. My second choice is the beautiful Victorian. I have enjoyed my visit to your
lovely blog - please have a wonderful new week.

I'll take the grand painted Lady being the Victorian lover that I am!!

Hi Bella! I grew up in tulip land. We worked in the bulb barns during the summer. We asked the growers to let us gather the cropped off tulip tops and we made them into campaign designs on the high school lawn. Tulips are such a part of everyone's life in the Skagit Valley. Oh, I miss it sometimes!

Enchanted Rose Studio said...

Happy Pink Saturday, Bella! Wouldn't it be great to live on one of those beautiful pinkalicious houses!?

Thanks for taking us on a wonderful tour!

Have a lovely "pink" weekend!

I love all the pink houses. There is something so enchanting and storybook like when you see a pink house.
And what a photo opportunity....a pink bike proped against the window of such a darling little shop, wow, can't create that.


Valarie said...

I love the pink houses. So sweet. The bicycle in front of the cupcake shoppe was adorable. I hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday.

Katie@LeBeauPaonVictorien said...

Great pink houses! I love them all.....and I'm especially loving that pink bicycle! What I wouldn't give to have that sweet bike!

Petite moi said...

Dearest Bella, thank you for stopping by my blog and greeting me on my first Pink Saturday.
Love those pink houses! And the bike...well the bike...Just yesterday, I went on a bike search in my granny's attic, because she promised she would give me her bicycle. So I cleaned it a little bit, and underneath the dust there was a lovely vivid-red color, but unfortunately me and red are not best friends, haha, so I am thinking of re-painting it. Pink was on my mind for a while, but I would not throw away a nice pale blue either. We'll see!
Hope to see you next Saturday for another portion of pink,

Beverly said...

Welcome to your first Pink Saturday, Bella. I apologize that I am late getting here, but it was a crazy week. I am so glad you decided to join us.

I love all of the pink houses. Pink was not an uncommon color on houses in south Florida, but we rarely see them here other than at the beach. Our house was pink when I was a young teenager.

Thank you for sharing all of these beauties. And, that pink bicycle is gorgeous.

The Pink bicycle is indeed perfect!
Happy Pink Saturday!

I was born in Tacoma a long, long time ago, but I musta lived on the wrong side of the tracks, cuz I don't remember any of those lovely ladies.
