Think Pink

Maybe it's just that spring is in the air, but I've been thinking a lot about pink lately. 


It's such a pretty color, whether it's in the blossoms that signal the start of a new season... 



...or in your favorite dessert.



Pink seems to pop up everywhere I look these days. Like this pink porcelain tea cup...


or this pretty pink scarf.



Aren't these little pink ballet slippers darling?



Okay, so maybe there's another reason why I'm noticing so much pink lately...


We're having a girl!


I couldn't be more thrilled. Last year, the three girls at Red Rose Alley became four...and this year we'll become five. Here's a pink cupcake for you to help us celebrate!
