Pinkism













That´s how it goes with those -isms...
One eats an avocado, sees some red leaves, wonders -
just theoretically - what might happen with a few
plum skins added...













... and boom, off on another bout...
I don´t even like pink, normally, did I ever mention
that?













But here we go, nevertheless: there´s a November
Pink Pack in the shop now, and a few more things...

I don't normally like pink either but there's pink and than there's pink. This is definitely pink :)
Lovely results and it goes perfectly with the lace.

you've started us all off on exploring pinks, I've been wondering - did you discover the pink from avocado skins? this new batch is lovely, as usual. k.

Ha, thank you - quite a club of pink-dislikers... actually, I can´t remember exactly who + what inspired me to that fateful act of throwing an avocado skin into the old plant watering pot - I know, though, that the first time ever I´ve been reading about using avocados was at Tinctory, when Eva told about dyeing a curtain with pips I think...

What heavenly pink bundles to play with!
Love this quote:
"But what is life if not a series of small disappointments
from which we rebound, pick ourselves off, and prepare
to dream again"...?
This could be my theme song! :)
