pink and red - The Dainty Squid

pink and red

Thursday, February 14, 2013

Normally for Valentines Day I have some sort of cute cat post (see last year's post here) but this year I didn't want to make a certain kitty cat dress up more than once in a week (hint : next Monday is President's Day) so I decided just to photograph a few of my favorite red and pink things. It's a bit random but I'm definitely someone who can appreciate a grouping of similarly colored things neatly laid out together.
I chose a selection of pink and red items from around the house that I use daily (lip balm/lipstick, curlers, post its, deco tape, highlighter), occasionally snack on (salt water taffy and sprinkles) and just absolutely love (camera, nail polish, teeth, ticket from my all time favorite museum, a bicycle brooch and a tiny dried mushroom). Putting together this little grouping was a lot of fun. I think this might become something I do more often. I'm already plotting silly little themes I could photograph.
Happy Valentines Day! Hope whatever you do, whether you have a "valentine" or not, you have a lovely day. Be good to yourself! Today's a great day for a looooong bubble bath and a good book. I got a big order of Lush goodies (yes, another one!) yesterday so it's quite clear what I'll be doing tonight.
xoxo

  10. Hi. Today for valentines my bf gave me a polaroid camera, but i don't know where to buy film! I seem to have a vague memory of you having one of those polaroid cameras (with the rainbow stripe), so I thought maybe I should ask you where to buy film. I don't know who else to ask ^^'

  13. I didn't know you like the Mutter Museum but it makes total sense. Isn't that place the best? Mom and I found it on a trip to Philly years ago, went again a few years later, and talk about going back all the time. The mummified baby with the "butt tumor" make a big impression the first time round when I was 12 or so.

    I also love the teeny tiny mushroom!

  20. I'm on the same page as kimberrleigh, these photos remind me of the 'I Spy' books! How fun would a blog/photo series based on 'I Spy' be? Speaking of Valentine's, Lush, and 'shrooms, I went to Lush the other day and their limited edition Valentine's bubble bar was a mushroom; it's almost too cute to use.

  21. I have that exact same La Sardina. It's one of my favourite possessions. I love the design. Also, I'm assuming one of your cats is Siamese? I gre up around Burmese cats, and your beautiful kitty reminded me of them :) Are they half as noisy as Burmese cats? Cos they shout. A lot. x
