"A Romantic Retreat" at Make Mine Pink

Join us tomorrow for another Friday of themed Shopping Fun at Remember all purchases from my Boutiques are shipped with a Thank~you Gift, Friday 8/19/2011 purchases will be shipped with a BONUS Gift as well!!

What does a romantic retreat mean to you? A romantic retreat is any personal place that evokes emotions of romance and can be a different experience from one person to another.

Is it a simple Summer picnic on the grounds of an arboretum surrounded by cascading rose bushes? The heirloom picnic basket set down on the cherished quilt is filled with delectable accoutrements to be enjoyed on colorful Nippon China plates as we sip refreshment out of odd and end champagne glasses. Nearby we hear the sounds of the music wafting from the students practicing their violins to Chopin and Bach.

Is it a week at the beach cottage where the living is easy? Early morning strolling the beach finding the sea glass to fill our Mason jars and having an unspoken contest as to whom will find the most coveted blue glass. Listening to the tide lapping as we sit fireside at night, stuffing ourselves with toasted marshmallows and snuggling under Grandma's time worn quilts as we count the stars grateful for the times hold near and dear.

Is it lying on the hammock under the big elm where dappled sunlight glistens over the stack of vintage romance novels? There is nothing more romantic than a good love story on a Summer's day. I pick up a wild daisy nearby...he loves me....he loves me not...he loves me;

LinkDo we need to travel abroad to find a romantic retreat? It is no further than our own cozy cottage; be it near the sea shore, a cabin by the lake or up in the mountains. It is home on a rainy day cozy amongst our overstuffed chairs, crisp white lace curtains billowing in the breeze, needlepoint and embroidered pillows beckoning us to curl up and stay a while. It is up in our attics with Grandma's collections spilling out of the boxes; old frames, post cards, chiffon dresses; millinery and elegant gloves of days gone by.

Please stop by the boutiques at Make Mine Pink today for ideas to help you create or find your own romantic retreat.
