A Vintage Sassy Pink Saturday..





I am  feeling like have a A Vintage Sassy Pink Saturday..  I am addicted to the color Pink, in all shades

The Meanings of the Color PINK ♥

Pink is the color of universal love. Pink is a quiet color. Lovers of beauty favor pink. A pink carnation means "I will never forget you".



Pink Color Meaning with Boys & Girls WWII

Interestingly, during the time of the Great Depression, pink was associated with boys instead of girls because it was seen as more decided and masculine, while blue was associated with girls because it was seen as more dainty and delicate. This color stereotype was later inverted after World War II.

Pink Energy

Pink is a combination of red and white. The quality of energy in pink is determined by how much red is present. White is the potential for fullness, while red helps you to achieve that potential. Pink combines these energies. Shades of deep pink, such as magenta, are effective in neutralizing disorder and violence. Some prisons use limited deep pink tones to diffuse aggressive behavior.
Pink provides feelings of caring, tenderness, self-worth and love, acceptance.
Put some pink in your life when you want:
  • calm feelings
  • to neutralize disorder
  • relaxation
  • acceptance, contentment

Your pink facts are very interesting. I remember my grandmother telling me that they used to dress boys in pink a long time ago. I love your powder jar. Wish I could find one that pretty to put my homemade anti perspirant in. I'm always on the look out for one while out thrifting. Welcome to Pink Saturday. I've enjoyed my first visit to your blog.

Welcome to Pink Saturday. What interesting and fun things you taught me today about pink. I had no idea that it used to be associated with masculine qualities. I dressed my two boys in a lot of great pink shirts when they were young. They are my favorite photos. Now they are scared of it! Thanks for sharing.
