Pink Saturday

Venice Carnevale - Carnival Festival in Venice Italy
Carnevale is the top festival celebration in Venice. Venice Carnevale is an ancient celebration starting 40 days before Easter, the last fling before Ash Wednesday. Now somewhat commercialized, Venice Carnevale is still considered a memorable attraction for tourists.



I love this picture with the backdrop of Italy
and the great costume and PINK feathers!


My daughters favorite
Pink Doughnut with Sprinkles




and I could not let a post go by without a Beautifully Wallpaper room.
be sure to visit Beverly @ how sweet the sound for Pink Saturday

I wish I could visit Venice during Carnivale! Maybe someday!

I am a wallpaper lover too! I wonder why so many dislike it and think it old fashioned? I still have a few rooms that are wallpapered --it hides a lot of flaws in an old house ;)

Happy Pink Saturday!

WOW!!!!! This is JUST fabulous! Not only your post, masks and donuts, but also because' You've got mail' is my fav movie, and if I had a boy, it would be Brinkley too!!!
Nice to 'meet' you, Gina!

Love those photographs, Gina, and I adore that wallpaper! It's stunning!

I haven't forgotten about the award. I have been incorporating some as I go, and I like to figure out ways to creatively work them into posts. :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

XO,

Takes me back. The mask are so beautiful. I went to a factory in Venice where they make them, it is fascinating how they make them. And the painting is something to behold. I'm loving that room with the pink wallpaper. How pretty is that! Have a great weekend Gina. It snowed here last night; and here I was, hoping spring was here to stay. Not.

Thanks so much for sharing this week. I can't think of anything to cheer me up more in my sub-zero temps than a Pink Saturday. Your offering is marvelous!

Hi Gina!
I loved the masks....oh to be in Venice again! I have a lovely Moretti Blackamoor pin from Italy and I just adore it. I wanted a mask but my pocketbook could only afford the pin! LOL!

Happy Pink Saturday, Gina.

I would love to be able to visit Venice. It seems quite intriguing.

I sure would like one of those donuts this morning.
