Pink shadows...


The morning sun cast beautiful pink shadows on the family room shade the other morning...


... and knowing how shadows (and rainbows) can disappear in an instant, I ran to get my camera so I could share them with you.

The shadows are being cast by this little architectural piece propped against the window (Thank goodness the view no longer looks like this January photo [although it's not out of the realm of possibility since early April snowstorms are pretty common here in New England!])

The other shadows are being cast by the diamond pane pattern of the windows...

For more posts featuring the luscious color pink, be sure to visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound to see her Pink Saturday post and to visit all the other pink loving bloggers participating today!

What beautiful photos!

I had a big smile on my face when I saw your new banner. I LOVE that shot. Though I do love the ones of your kitty too.

You really do take nice photos.

Hugs,

Catchin' ya early, honey! Those pink shadows are beautiful on the window. I have always loved your little cottage. "Enchanted cottage" is what comes to my mind when I see your home. Just darling and very cottage-y, chickee.

I love the way you captured the shadows with your photographs. I would say that pink shadow cast on your family room shade is most unusual, love it!

Such pretty pink shadows. Oh, when I think of New England, I think of picturesque villages, quaint main streets, fall leaves. But I know you guys get hammered in snow. So I hope you see spring soon in your neck of the woods.

Lovely pink shadows. And that's a cool architectural element. Yes, I am happy too that the snow has finally melted. Do you remember that April Fools Day blizzard a while back?

My ice scraper is still in the car..just in case!
