This cake would truly be the pinkest, most fantastic, pinkalicious cake in the history of pink cakes. Yes, I have cake on the brain. There are worse things!

Watch. And marvel. At THE XTREME CUTE! At the PINK HAIR! At the SUGAR BABY LOVE! (it's in the song).
Your mind is blown away, far far away, right?

Lately, I have been riding a wave of rediscovered love for all things Shabby Chic. I used to love that whole aesthetic, but it fell to the wayside as I succumbed completely to all-things-Domino. The Domino look is still my favorite decorating style. (WHY is that magazine gone??)
But I digress. I'm feeling like I have a small opening in my heart for a bit of Shabby Chic to make its way back into my life...little bits here and there...everyone can use a teensy bit of pretty for pretty's sake, yes?
So I find it highly likely that I'll be checking out Rachel Ashwell's latest paperback book, when it hits stores later this summer. And I'd also like to see her book, 'Shabby Chic Inspirations'. I used to own this one and I loved it. I wonder what happened to it?

I am a HUGE, mega Lisa Yockelson fan. Her cookbooks are FAB. Her recipes always work out. Her recipes always inspire. I've had this cake cookbook for about 15 years and it's still a big favorite.
So imagine the EXTREME DELIGHT when I discovered that she has come out with 'Baking Style', a brand new book. And it's pink. Some days are just happy days, you know? I cannot, cannot wait to get my hands on this one. And then I'm going to make this.

Just saw these amazing pillows from Bonnie and Neil over at Design Sponge this AM, hot off the presses. They almost made my eyes pop out. Pink pillows that actually look cool and not like something you need to hide in your kiddo's room? I'll take one of each!
The second pillow is apparently temporarily sold out. Focus on the temporarily part!
1) Dahlia Tile Cushion Fluoro Pink, $125. (awesome pillows are sometimes an investment, but they will last for years!)
2) Pink Gum Cushion, $125.
3) Watercolor Cushion in Fluoro Pink, $145.

Julia INSISTED that I put this picture on Pink Sparkle Fun. Now that I think of it, all she saw was the baby in the bunny suit and not the caption underneath. But really, this is pretty darn hilarious and cute and hilarious.
(I cannot find the original source! If someone knows, I'd love to be able to credit properly. I found it on this Tumblr.)

I saw these cupcakes with Lucky Charms in the batter and decorated on top with more Lucky Charms and thought oh YEAH, that looks like something that needs to be on Pink Sparkle Fun! My kiddo saw this photo and asked, "Can that go on my blog please???" and I was like, "That's what I'm doing baby-cakes!"
So here you go. Lucky Charms cupcakes. I saw this recipe from Cupcake Project.com listed as a fun recipe for St. Paddy's Day, but really, don't they look just right for summer? So fun!

A pal of mine pinned this darling pink-cabana-at-the-sea art from Rosenberry Rooms the other day and I was instantly charmed by it. You can get the print personalized, like you see here, or plain with no monogram. I think it's utterly delightful and just perfect for summer!
