Pink is one of my favorite colors. Not hot pink, but the shade of pink you see on the inside of a seashell. That’s one reason I love a sparkling wine with a blush. This non-vintage Mumm Napa Brut Rosé ($24.00) tastes as delightful as it looks.
The aroma has a touch of creamy coconut mingled with berry, and the flavor hints of red currant jelly and candy apple–but is pleasingly dry. A winner!
It is said that once upon a time, pink was a masculine color. Eighteenth-century gentlemen were resplendent yet manly in their pink silk coats and lace. And in case you need any more evidence that the color pink is magnificent…
Convincing argument in favour of pink. The last photo definitely nailed the argument. I like pink, too.
That morning sky blew me away! I was backing out of our driveway and I had to stop and take a picture. Needless to say, the photo cannot do it justice 🙂
Stunning. Nature has the best colours, the best moments. I can’t resist sunrise and sunset, either.

I, too, like a little blush in my bubbly, which generally is cava. This morning’ sky
Cava is great! And prosecco. Both easier on the wallet, too.

Much, much easier. 🙂

Oops. This morning’s sky is blushing.
Oh, Hubby can rock pink. Years ago he had a pale pink button down shirt and he looked incredibly hot in it. I think it has something to do with the confidence to wear pink, which I found even more attractive than the pink itself.
Yes, but certain men do look especially good in pink. And you’re right about the confidence. I love a pale pink shirt, or a shirt with a pink tie.
A very early pink dress I wore as a flower girl. I had a matching pink lace hat and pink lace gloves. I think I posted a picture on my blog once.
One of my favorite outfits (adult) of all time was a pink knit top with a muted floral skirt of soft pink, blue and green. I had matching pink shoes and stockings. I always felt very feminine and beautiful in that outfit.
My son wore a pink polo for one of his senior pictures (he wore several outfits.) He looked gorgeous in it and the photographer posted it on their wall.
You’ve obviously touched me with your “pink” post. It’s funny because there is not a pink item in my house unless you count pink depression glass (which is not pink.) I love your pink examples 🙂
It’s interesting how the color touches us. Maybe because it is not an everyday color. I have a similar memory of a pale pink lambswool sweater from Scotland and a matching plaid skirt my mother sewed for me. I was wearing that outfit on my first date with the Long-Suffering Husband. I don’t have many pink items in my house either, but I have some pink beads–subject for a later post 🙂
I like the liquid pink 🙂 Rose wine and naturally pink cava or champagne 🙂 And the pink skies are one of nature’s wonders! As are flowers. I like naturally occurring pink 🙂
As for myself, not much. I’ve never been dressed in pink as a girl and light pinks are not for me. The only pink i wear is dark cyclamen, raspberry, cranberry that sort of thing. I like sour cherry dark pink-violet. It’s the only shade which agrees with me.
But i really like pink shirts and ties in men, one of my very dear friends and more had deep blue eyes and pink shirts looked great on him 🙂
Just not a very ‘pink’ person myself 🙂
PS i do love my pink hearts garland, because it is cute and funny with all the characters on it who are the farthest possible from pink 🙂
I hated pink as a girl. I considered it too femmy and frilly. My best friend had a room all in pink and white with a canopy bed, but my bedroom looked like a boy’s room, LOL. But when I got older, I started to enjoy the color. Funny how these things change with time.
Concur on your enjoyment of blush sparkling in general, and Mumm Napa in particular. Visiting their winery was a highlight of our trip to Napa a few years ago.
Napa is so much fun! I’ve not been to Mumm, but have visited Chandon.

Pink fizzy wine, delicously pretty and that sky is gorgeous.
Thanks Lisa! Sometimes there are advantages to being an early riser 🙂

With a hint of coconut? That sounds great! I like the idea of seeing pink as a masculine color. I’ll have to think about where that might work for me. For now, the pink champagne would work great.
Yes, the creaminess of it surprised me. Very pleasant! Try a pink shirt sometime, I highly recommend them for men 🙂
