Read Pink!
September 26th, 2011

Tomorrow, The Secret History of the Pink Carnation comes out in a special Read Pink edition for the benefit of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

So, instead of our usual Monday “if you like”, I thought it might be appropriate to list our favorite pink (and Pink) items. Here are some of mine:

— pink icing sugar on petit fours;

— the Pink comics drawn by Joanne Renaud;

— pink in your cheeks on a crisp winter’s day;

— pink cupcakes on Valentine’s Day;

— BCRF’s pink ribbon– and the amazing researchers, scientists, and fundraisers who make that mean what it does.

What are your favorite pink things?

    Most obvious – the Pink series books! :) My Grandmother loves pink and always has a pink sweater on so I think of her when I see that colour anywhere.

    The pink yarns I used to knit a blanket for my baby niece (it’s not special yarn but she makes it special!)

    My pink dress that was on sale

    The Pink series, of course!

    Strawberry ice cream

    Grapefruit juice

    Pink striped pajama pants

    And I’ll echo Lauren’s eloquent tribute to the pink ribbon.
