Friday Faves: Think Pink

21 Oct

In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, this Friday Faves round up is dedicated to the color pink.  Pink is the color of femininity, yes, but it is also becoming a symbol of positivity and the power to overcome.  This month and always, Artsy Forager encourages you to Think Pink– breast cancer is a threat to us all, but what an encouragement it is to see so many women ( and men ) winning their battle!  I hope you’ll consider making a donation or linking to The Pink Fund on your blog of Facebook page, look for the link at the bottom of the post.

    Thanks for featuring me, Lesley! I often feel that my paintings aren’t complete without a touch of pink. Needless to say, I love going out in the world and seeing both men and women wearing pink this month.

      My pleasure! A little pink makes any day happier. My aunt recently fought & won her battle with breast cancer, so it is a cause close to my heart!
