There is something about pink houses that just make me smile. I would love to live in anyone of these darling pretty pink houses.

OK, so this is not such a "small" pink house...but I would adore living here.

This one has such a cute fence that just looks perfect with this pink house.

Look at the "jewelry" dripping off this pink house!

Looks like the person who lives here loves everything pink. A pink bike sits in front of the pink house.

How about this beauty! It even has it's own pink light house!!!

This little house just screams 50's charm.

Even the big houses look pretty in pink.

Doesn't this look like a movie star would live here.

Love the windows on this pink beauty.

This front door with the little bike outside has a lovely French cottage flair to it.

Well there you have it. As John Cougar's song says....Little Pink Houses for You and Me.

Darlene said...

Aren't those the neatest things!!! I can't imagine painting my house pink but I guess in certain places and certain houses they do look LOVELY!! I could live in any one of these!!

I want a Pink house.

My favorite is the Movie Star house. I like that style.

But a little pink cottage would do.

You think your sister would let you paint her house ??

We had to paint our house a few months ago. My husband wanted to paint it an ugly beige. I rebelled, "That looks like dirt," I said, "Pink, I vote pink!"

I think it sent a shiver of horror down his spine and he fought me all the way on this. I ended up winning by showing him a photo of Monet's house, which is PINK, and telling him that's what I wanted. Then when he balked at that (waaaay too PINK for him), I pulled out the sample of the light, creamy, pink I really wanted and he reluctantly said he could live with it.

So the house is now a lovely pale creamy pink with a creamy white trim and a brilliant turquoise front door. It looks fab, I love my house pink!

And my husband ... when the neighbors started gushing praise for the pink paint job, it suddenly was his idea all along.

I knew it would go like that. ;^)

Love them ALL! Although dear hubs would never go for it.

Really fun houses Joanne! I know a few people with pink houses too.

Where did you find all those great photos? I'd love to know where the house with the light house was located.

Hugs, pat

I was trying to remember what song that line came from! Very fun tour - love the pink bicycle, too. :)

Lorilee said...

Isn't the line from a John Mellencamp song,"Pink Houses"? I have my Mom's very OLD bicycle, and I want to paint it lavender and yellow!

Lisa's RetroStyle said...

Wow! The first and third houses made my eyes pop out! Those are awesome!!! They are all great...but those two are right up my alley;) Those were fun...thanks for sharing them.

Sarah Taylor said...

Evening Joanne! Thanks for stopping by today! Those times at home, alone, and playing dress up are some of my very favorites! Thank you for your sweet words and I do hope you'll stop by again!
Have a great evening!

I wandered to your blog from another's (isn't that the way it goes!)
I love pink houses. I saw one on vacation a few years ago and took its picture, just because it struck me as so pretty.

emily said...

What great houses! Love the one on the water! I never seen so many! When I was little I wanted my house to be pink :)

Judy said...

What a lovely pink tour. Know what I think about when I see a huge long it would take to clean it. But then I remind myself I could afford a maid.

I love them all! Especially the second one. My dream is to have a pink house. Thanks for letting me dream a little.

I live in a pink house ( It was so funny when we had it painted; random strangers would come up to us and give their opinions on the color. Fortunately most liked it. It even made it to a video produced by the town to show how nice it is to live here.

I will take my computer and use your post to go before the Historic commitee when we chose colors for
Thank you for taking the time to find those pretty homes.
And I think I will paint my bike too!

Catherine said...

Super great tour! All the houses are gorgeous!

Edie Marie's Attic said...

Hi Joanne!
I'll take any of them! I love that last arched front door, tre chic!
It would have to be a big house to hold all our blogger guests though as they come by to visit!
Hugs, Sherry
