Would anyone care for a spot of tea with pink macaroons? These tea cups are too awesome!
These aren't necessarily pink, but they are pretty cool. We decided that these would be the seats we would sit in while we laugh evilly in unison at our sinister plans to turn the worldinto a giant party. Mwa, ha ha ha!
Getting back to our pink obsession, we dug up a bit of info on our beloved color. Apparently, the use of the word "pink" was first recorded in the late 17th century, and was used in relation to flowers within the genus Dianthus. During this timeperiod, the word "pink" was also used to describe a greenish or yellowish color. Funky.
Now, what is all the business about pink being just for girly girls? This began in the 1920's. It was from then until the 1940's that it was considered a boy color because it was related to red; a more bold, strong, and powerful color, while blue was perceived as dainty, soft, and feminine, and therefore assigned to girls. Blue was also seen as a relation to the Virgin Mary, and therefore seemed appropriate. We couldn't let the boys keep all of the pink to themselves, so we took it back. Since the 1940's, the norm apparently inverted and continues into our day, even though the there will always be individuals who disagree. "It has been suggested that females preferpink because of a preference for reddish things like ripe fruits and healthy faces" says Wikipedia. Well, we are all right with that. You can keep your blue, gentlemen; DLP likes our pink teacups and cake!
