Pretty In Pink II
I love my new pink bed linen! I also bought linen sets in Asparagus Green and Sapphire Blue. They weren't sold as such. I checked on Wikipedia color charts 'shades of blue' and 'shades of green.'

JP made a 'red velvet cake' for the birthday party downstairs - picture forthcoming.. It was made with heaping portions of red dye. I guess I could make a 'pink velvet cake' or a cake in Asparagus Green or Sapphire Blue. and without even changing the taste. I would have to do something about the cream cheese frosting, being the noted cheese-phobe that I am. Here's a T-shirt with some pink, it's The Shins, among my favorite band (check this out), whose song I featured in yesterday's post..
