Pink Saturday/ My Pink Office

It's been just over three weeks now since I said good-bye to my workplace and my office. I really liked my little office. It was very comfortable. I felt like I had put a bit of myself into it, yet still managed to keep it minimal and professional. I had touches of pink throughout.

See that dark pink table?


Here was my desk. I always had a pink box of tissues on top. I also had my mousepad that I had made at Walmart featuring one of my pink roses. It made me smile every time I looked at it.


Above my desk was a picture featuring French words and these beautiful pink roses! This picture now hangs in my new bedroom. I got this picture a few years ago at a Welcome Home outlet store for only about $25.


I added a couple more pictures above the seating area. I carried over my Paris theme. This is a painting of a flower shop. I got these pictures at Pamida for only $6 a piece!


I loved this picture in particular because it showed a typical Paris street with the Eiffel Tower in the background. See the pink tables in the cafe? You can't tell from the pictures, but my office walls were a soft green and these pictures were perfect.


I wanted to add a little whimsy for the children that sometimes accompanied my clients. Here is a pink teddy bear that I bought. The money benefitted the Susan G. Komen breast cancer awareness fund. A co-worker's daughter was quite enchanted with my bear and named her Rosy Cuddly. I had some pink potpourri in the white tin to make the office smell good.


When I first spotted this plaque, I couldn't resist it! I love the angel and little pink flowers.


Okay, these aren't pink, but I love hydrangeas. However, there were no windows in my office, so I had to make do with fake flowers. These were half price at WalMart!


I thought that my office was a pleasant and comfortable area for my clients, and I was able to keep it feminine at the same time.

I sort of miss it!

What a pretty, sweet office, and I love all of your touches of pink. I can see why you miss it! Hopefully, all of your pretties have found homes in other spots. They are so neat!

Happy Pink Saturday...

What a lovely office! It looked very pleasant and peaceful.

I'm looking forward to seeing your new place with your things used in a new way. That's the fun part of it, everything you have can be used differently and seem brand new!

Have a good weekend!
Hugs, Sherry

You did a great job making your office so pretty. I would miss it too if I were you. Hope you eventually have another pretty office.

You did a great job in there. You made it look more like a cozy home office instead of a "work" office.

Justine :o )

Pink Saturday in the spring, with all the little bunnies, and kitties, and chickies has me on a cute and sweet high! I ♥ spring!

Thanks so much for sharing this week. Each and every blog makes me smile or jot down a recipe or think, "I can do that" or "I need to buy that" or gee, "I think I need to paint and clean!"

Hi, Kady...thanks for stopping by today. Yes, I have a CLICKER on my sidebar for daily mammogram freebies. And, did you see the button for the FRANNIE DOLLS? All proceeds go to cancer research and they are the cutest things...
I love all your pretty pinks and I just know another office will be right around the corner for you that will LOVE having all this pink in it...

Your upbeat attitude is incredible. I wish you the best as you start the next phase.

Hi Kady, Your office did look like a very peaceful and uplifting place to receive and work with your clients.

Hope your move to the new duplex is going well. I don't envy you that! We moved four years ago and I still haven't recovered!

Happy PSat! Hope you have a really good week. Dana
