Show Off Your Cottage Monday - Pink Chair

Welcome to "SHOW OFF YOUR COTTAGE MONDAY", a blog party I host at the beginning of each week to celebrate the things we love about our homes and how we live.
The House in the Roses
Pink seems to be all the rave right now... and I’ve been looking at so many photographs with pink in it lately! Pink furniture, pink picture frames, pink cakes, pink dressers. I knew I had to have a pink chair in my pink room! Have you noticed how much I love chairs? I do! I do! So I got me a pink chair!
I really like my pink chair in my pink room, but really... this is ctually where she belongs...
In the garden! ;) Yes, she’s been seating in my garden ever since the day I got it and painted it in lime green. Now I can’t decide whether I should take it back to the garden or keep it in my pink room! ;) Which color do you prefer? Do you like her better in pink?... or green?
This is how shabby she was looking by the end of the summer last year... Do you think I should bring it back here?
Alas, that's what I'm celebrating... my newly painted garden chair! And what are YOU celebrating? You know the rules! ;)
1. Please link directly to your post and not just to your blog. 2. Please link back to The House in the Roses 3. Have fun!

  1. Oh- I love her painted pink...but liked her green too. I would probably put her back in the garden because it seems her home is there...and the colors surrounding her are so beautiful! Happy Monday, Cielo~ oh...and I love your new header-very fresh and pretty for Spring! xxoo Diana

  11. I think that you need two chairs, one for the garden and one for your bedroom...it is just too hard to choose because they both look great.

  12. Love your banner Cielo - that doesn't look like you though-

    Love the chair -I really like that green color in the garden- sure makes for a cute area!

  15. I like it pink inside the house. I vote for getting another chair to put outside. I like the green out there, but then again green is my favorite color.

  16. I think if you put the chair back in the garden it will shabby up and show the green through the pink! how pretty that would be...

  17. Hmmm..
    Love chairs too - this is a wonderful one - both colors are spectacular - the lime green just popped in the pictures - but, the pink is a wonderful backdrop - keep her pink - keep her in your room, but occasionally take her out for a while in your garden - She'll shine in both places -
    Thank you for hosting this lovely party,
    Kathy

  18. Oh, I cannot decide!! How about two chairs, one in lime green and one in pink!! The lime green looked fabulous in the garden, even when it was shabby. Lovely!!
    Like your new header too.

  19. Hello Cielo... I love your gorgeous pink chair, it looks so pretty in your pink room... but, I think it would look even more fabulous out in your garden once more... perhaps with a bouquet of your Cosmos I read that your are planting this year... Cosmos are so beautiful, they were my great~grandmothers favorite flower so I plant them all over for her... your blog is so lovely... and today I am joining your party as well... I have signed on below and linked back to you... Merci!... xoxo Julie Marie "Idyllhours"

  22. I have got to get back into doing the Show Off Your Cottage" again. Perhaps next week I will give it a go. :)

    I LOVE that chair-both ways! But I'm really loving it pink.
    I have an old chair that belonged to my Dad. You may have just inspired me to paint it. I'll let you know if I do....

    ((Hugs))

  23. It's so beautiful in both places.
    It seems happier in the garden and it seems like you miss having her there. Thank you for another visit...it is such a pleasure.

  24. Your chair is so lovely both in pink and green. It looks so different in each color, but definitely very pretty in both.

  25. I love the pink. Looks like you can use it inside and out!

  26. Love the chair in the Pink. All though it was pretty in the bright green. I think I would give it new life and let it live in the pretty pink room for a while. She may prefer being inside so she doesn't become so shabby. Go with your heart. You can always get another chair for your garden! I love chairs too. . . Have a wonderful day, and thank you for hosting this lovely party. Hugs, Karie

  27. I love the chair pink inside, yet it is so pretty green out in the garden! Both are beautiful!

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is a pretty chair, very nice lines... and it looks great in either green or pink! I'd keep it in the pink for awhile though, since it looks so pretty. You'll know when it's time for you to change it up again, plus whether to keep it inside or to put it back in your garden! :)
    Best,
    Gloria

  30. I love both the chairs, the pink one goes so well in the bedroom, but the green looks so at home in your beautiful garden. Thanks for hosting such a lovely party.... I just added my link. Drop by and say hello at my place when you get a chance: http://withadashofcolor.blogspot.com/

  31. Oh dear, I like them both equally! I suppose the chair will survive longer if it's kept inside, though. You've made both settings very pretty, so it'll be difficult to choose. Thanks for being a great blog party hostess! Bess

    I have two very similar wooden chairs. One is yellow and one is turquoise. I would have a hard time painting them, although I really like PINK! The yellow chair had a twin and a matching round table. I think that we bought them at an auction years ago. I no longer have the table or one of the chairs. I buy a lot of chairs too!

  33. I love her both colors. If you put her back outside, you could give her a coat of water repellent matte. I love the shabby but it is hard on chairs like that... only a few seasons....

    ReplyDelete
  34. Now that's a tough choice! I love it both ways. Maybe you should try to find a second one that is similar. I agree with Gayla though about the outdoors being tough on the chair.

    Love,
    Susan and Bentley

  35. Hoy me encuentro con tu blog, me alegro mucho que tengas cosas bellas para compartir, este invierno fue duro, ahora estoy bien y me apetece hacer fotos al jardin, esta primavera es rara, poca flor y retardada, este fin de semana daré una pequeña charla doble la buena influencia de las plantas en nuestra vida, creo sinceramente que las plantas nos pueden ayudar, me gustaría cambiar impresiones sobre este tema.
    Te deseo todo lo buen
    Un gran abrazo, Maruxa.

  36. Tengo dificultad en que tu blog me acepte un comentario, a ver si a la tercera lo consigo, este invierno motive muchos ánimos para escribir, pero este fin de semana daré una pequeña charla sobre la influencia benéfica de las plantas en nuestras vidas, es un tema para debatir¿ No te parece?
    Te envio un gran abrazo.
