Pink Saturday Fantasy

This week, I was feeling kind of fantastic and magical ...
so, let's take a look at a few pink masks.
Let's look at masks that are meant to intrigue, provoke, amuse, and bedazzle.













Now, visit Beverly, and see who else is participating in Beverly's Pink Saturday! There is always a plethora of pink treasures and wonders!

Then go make something beautiful - perhaps a mask!

When I saw the first photo, my eyes wonder on those details. Good thing there was a close up on the next photo :-) This house is a darling. Everything just go well together to create this adorable home.

But my fave when it comes to surroundings is his house with that bridge!

Happy Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday

Yikes! This is soooooooooooooooooooooo bad. now this is what happens when I'm on wordpress and its telling me I already commented double entry! So sorry Tristan! This is not what i typed at all :-( Please delete it. Thanks. So so bad.

This is what's my comment supposed to be:

I said I love masks and I can't just choose one from the collection you have. Although I lean more to the masks where the upper half of the face is what's covered. It's so mysterious.

Although the piggy mask falls under that category. I would probably wear it if the face of the mask is in proportion to my face. Not where the nostrils are on my eyes LoL

Happy Pink Saturday Tristan!

The Antiques Diva™ said...

Gorgeous Ventian Masks!! I just made an "impromptu trip" to Venice last weekend! I was about to pull the buying trigger on purchasing a mask but my husband thought they were eery! We were in Florence for vacation and on our drive home (to Berlin) we realized we were passing soooo close by Venice that we popped into the city for dinner! What fun!

friedaquilter said...

These masks are amazing, breathtaking, gorgeous. Where did you find them all. I simply could not choose my favourite, I want them all (oh okay, you can keep the piggy one!). Wouldn't life be wonderful if we were all wearing pink masks!!

Birds of a Feather said...

Fabulous masks, and for a moment I thought this was going to be a completely "serious" post ~ so glad for the laugh at the end!

PS I only appear to be ambitious (it comes in random spurts!)The whole house is turned upside down, and I'm not sure where to begin to put it back together - lol! I told my hubby that the urban legend of woman having affairs with service guys is true because they are so very grateful for someone to come to their rescue! I made him pinkie swear next time we would call someone!

robin dudley-howes said...

What lovely treasures for the eyes and soul. I especially love the first two masks in pink. They remind me of m.antoinette.

As always I thank you for your clever comments on my blog.
