What is the meaning of the colour Pink?

Brighter pinks are youthful, fun, and exciting, while vibrant pinks have the same high energy as red; they are sensual and passionate without being too aggressive. Toning down the passion of red with the purity of white results in the softer pinks that are associated with romance and the blush of a young woman's cheeks. It's not surprising that when giving or receiving flowers, pink blossoms are a favorite. Pink is the color of happiness and is sometimes seen as lighthearted. For women who are often overworked and overburdened, an attraction to pink may speak of a desire for the more carefree days of childhood.

Interesting Information: 

In 1947, fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli introduced the color "hot pink" to western fashion. She dubbed the shade "Shocking Pink," though today the color is more well-known as "magenta'

First Lady, Mamie Eisenhower, who loved and wore pink so much it became known as “Mamie Pink”


Pink encourages friendliness while discouraging aggression and ill-will


Since the color pink is said to have a tranquilizing effect, sport's teams sometimes use pink to paint the locker room used by opposing teams


Some studies of the color pink suggest that male weightlifters seem to lose strength in pink rooms, while women weightlifters tend to become stronger around the color


Pastries taste better when they come out of pink boxes or served on pink plates (it only works with sweets). Pink makes us crave sugar. Source: http://www.sensationalcolor.com/

Novel Handbags - By Karen H at Etsy








Fell in love with the idea, design and execution of these gorgeous designer bags. 

From NovelCreations at Etsy:

"My search starts with ♻ gently used ♻ books. They have to be unique, eye catching, or "make a statement" type books with their covers. My treasures come from garage sales, flea markets, estate sales, and the used bookstore where I work. In some cases, I will purchase a new book if there is a special request that I just can not locate used. Searching for that perfect book is half the fun. The rest is matching the fabric, handles and the button enclosure."

With Christmas just around the corner these unique creations will make any literary buff smile.
