Frou-frou Friday and Pink Saturday... wow

Not sure if Frou-frou Friday is starting today or next Friday so thought I better Frou-Frou my PINK SATURDAY, thanks Beverly at How Sweet the Sound!  This is the room I stayed in while in Key West painting en plein air!  You know, my life altering experience, seriously.  I stayed at the Popular House which is painted PINK ON THE OUTSIDE!

I had the most WONDERFUL stay here - breakfast was unbelieveable.  The first morning, I believe it was Richard baked a double chocolate banana bundt cake as part of breakfast.  Each day we had an incredible desert with breakfast!  Jody owns the house, Liz (I hope I remember that right) was so sweet.  I would come back from painting on the streets - dejected because I wasn't good enough - she had kind encouraging words and hugs to push me onto the next day!  I believe it was Dave who also worked the front desk and got me where I needed to go.  I was a woman traveling alone and felt safe, secure and swallowed up by the atmosphere of the house!  The art was incredible and I hated to leave!
Soooooooooo, in honor of Connie's Frou-frou Friday - I have frou-frou'd my Pink!
I visited a couple of pink sites but have gotten everyone mixed up - journaling my blog hopping now so I can give appropriate recognition.  There isn't a bad visit on Beverly's list!!!
cheers! dana
