A Short-and-Sweet-Post-for-Beverly's Pink Saturday

You’ve gone on vacation before and left the keys to your place with a friend. Maybe you have a cat, a fat belly-dragger, or a red panda who needs fed, some houseplants that need water, mail to collect. Your friend does a good job, maybe has a few people over and doesn’t take the trash out: you make sure you wash your sheets. No major damage down. Nothing like coming home to find every single object you own–from the picture of your mom, to your three spoons, to your mayonnaise–wrapped in pink wrapping paper.

That’s what happened when 5 friends got together and pulled the Pink Apartment Project on their friend Jacob while he was in New York for a week. Wrapped every single object in his apartment in pink wrapping paper: 271 items, 203 yards of paper. Hell, they even wrapped his posters.

It might have actually been a good thing for Jacob. His apartment has never looked so clean! While he unwraps his possessions he gets the chance to consider where everything goes, get organized. Those are good friends you have, Jacob.

I am totally awed by the blind devotion to the project these five people had! I mean, have you ever even attempted to gift wrap an adjustable, spring jointed study lamp?
The pink kitchen! I'm loving the pink paper covered air duct!
Even inside the fridge ... pink! ... gives new meaning to the phrase mystery meat, eh?!
I totally love that they wrapped the poster on the hall wall - AND that tiny little smoke detector waaaay up there! Seriously. Are you paying attention? Look at the venetian blinds!

Okay. I warned you that today's Pink Saturday was going to be short and sweet. I was working on another post when I discovered this - and just couldn't resist sharing. And, since there doesn't seem to be any way to link this to another pink post, my original will have to wait for next week! Until then, be sure to visit Beverly's Pink Saturday and see all the participants for this week's postings.

Then after you've gotten a lot of inspiration ... and you realize just what too much pink can do to a person' head...

Go and make something beautiful!
