Adorable Pink - Flowers, pink fabrics, pink prints, pink skies, en more....

Hi everyone,!!! yes pink, it seems I'm surrounded by pink everywhere I look,
I have pink flowers on my desk, pink roses in our garden,
I found these gorgeous old pink vintage cards recently,
My mother's pink blossom tree in her front garden, here !! isn't it fabulous,
You know it has never blossomed like this before, never!!
My very special 'pink' rose chintz tea setting which was 
a gift from all the girls when I left Vogue Entertaining Guide years ago, 
along with some other table setting goodies.......  they knew me well!!
I love my pink grapes, my pink French hat, should I go on?
Oh yes, I will!!  I bought 12 little pink Christmas trees this week,
Why twelve?  Well why not!  They're bright and beautiful and I will 
show you them soon.  

Have you seen our universe lately, WOW!! I look at it every night
both up in the night time sky, plus via Google Sky,
Look at these amazing planets, they look like space ships on there way to earth, don't they.

All these table setting images I photographed recently in my Mother's garden, you know it was actually raining very softly, but it didn't matter at all,I love working in the mist, I just had to watch my camera lenses.  
I have nearly finished the Garden book photography that I have been working on all year, can you believe that's 12 months since I started it.  Now we get into the wonderful design side.   And my book,
well, it's certainly not going to make it to the shelves this year, 
there's only so much a girl can do!! right??

Also, I have been asked to be the Creative Director for a HUGE four week event here in the Southern Highlands next year, I have been locked away in my Studio designing and creating it for the past month!! I photographed all last week for this event and the website and it will be launched tomorrow. I will be presenting it tomorrow to a very special group of people. 
I can't wait to share it with you next week.

 Also, I will be giving a talk on Christmas table settings and fun things to do around the home at a local Antique Store 'Dirty Janes' here in Bowral on Friday evening December the 9th, it should be fun, so come along for a glass of champagne if you're in town.  I will post more on this in the coming weeks.

You know how much I love Tablesetting Parties,  especially Susan's!
and I always visit Beverly for Pink Saturday, 
and here in Australia I get so inspired when I drop in on Good Life Wednesdays at Sarah's home.
Bee Bon Belle is showing a beautiful garden here in our town called 'Whitley'
and last week my very talented friend Harrison Howard sent me 
an email with his beautiful prints.  They're on special this month!!
All I want for Christmas is......

Have a wonderful, exciting, fun and creative week my gorgeous friends,
xxxxxxx and hugs  Coty
