I am just one of a bunch of awesome ladies participating in this challenge.

You can pop by Brendas blog HERE and see a list of participants on her sidebar....OR pop by Joni's Blog HERE, Joni is our Hostess this week !

Ok this is sooo outside my PINK SQUARE its not even funny... but i do loooove a challenge.
SO HERE I GO with ORANGE stuff !

Firstly it doesnt matter what colour flowers are, they are always beautiful...
Orange Daisies and Pansies (My trusty assistant Sam found these at the local Nursery yesterday...and was heard to shriek across the nursery, "MUMMY I FOUND YUKKKY ORANGE FLOWERS FOR YOU"...LOL.
Out of the mouths of babes hey!

Next up is my gorgeous and crazy baby Georgie, trying so hard to squeeze into my ribbon container for a little nap!

He's mamas boy and no-one elses and has a wicked temper if you cross him. Typical red head you think ...???

Now what would any day be without CANDY...i mean can turn a grey ole day into a sunny and ORANGE one !

Sorry girls i ate the props..*wink*

Now that wasnt actually too hard. Im sooo looking forward to the next challenge now!

Be sure to pop by and visit the rest of the girls with their ORANGE themed items!

Have a gorgeous weekend everyone!

Love and Pink Kisses,

Ooops perhaps i should send Orange kisses today :)

love the orange photos, especially the kitty...and they don't even clash with your blog! Tell Sam orange isn't my favorite color either, but I was trying to think of a summer color that popped (other than yellow)...

nice to meet you ~

Jeanne said...

Ooohh your blog is so pretty. How lucky to have such an observant assistant to help you spot orange stuff. hehe Great orange finds, love your kitty. These challenges are a fun way to meet new people and so glad to get to meet you! {{HUGS}}

What a great collection of orange things. I especially like the cat. What a cutie. I was looking all over for orange flowers, front doors, and traffic signs/cones and couldn't find any. I never thought of going to the local garden centre. And orange candy - made me realise I have a bag of dried apricots which are a bright orange. Ah well, too late now! It's nice to meet you in your pink world, Shannon.

Annie said...

Thanks for your orange photos...Shannon..just great...and the rest of your blog looks really interesting all those

Connie said...

I don't think I have anything orange in my home unless it's the fruit! Your post is delightful though, chickadee,

The candy dish with orange candy is just lovely! I really liked all of your photos..
Thank you for the sweet comment you left me on my site. It was much appreciated.
Sending you love, Nita

Hi Shannon,

I'm so glad you played along!! Okay hands down my favorite is your cute little guy, Georgie. How did he squeeze himself into that container. LOL He doesn't look like he has a temper with that sweet face! And I love your orange candy and orange kisses for the day. Great fun!!

Sally said...

Love ALL your pictures! Glad you joined in the fun.

Your blog is BEAUTIFUL!! Such a creative young lady you are!!

Kari (GrannySkywalker) said...

This IS my first time to your blog (as well as my first time participating in the challenge!) and I've enjoyed my visit quite a bit! Love all your pictures, but the cat is my absolute favorite!


Brenda said...

Hahaha, ate the props huh? Ok, the candy is my favorite (cause I'd love to have a piece!) but they're all great photos. I'm so glad you joined us in having fun with our cameras!

Donna said...

I have to agree with the others, the kitty wins the show! But he knew that already, didn't he? Beautiful blog, and I can't wait to immerse myself in it and soak in the cottage pink attitude. Enough with thinking about orange, LOL!

Cindra said...

Orange and pink are two of my favorite combinations! So happy you have joined us!

Candy- A Pretty Home said...

I would have a hard time trying to find orange around my home too. I dont think I can now that I think about it (except for maybe an actual orange or orange juice LOL)
Candy :)

~Becca~Bluebird Rose said...

You did good!! :)
Orange would be such a challenge for me; it is not one of my faves either. I wouldn't have thought of photographing my orange kitties, and I have two!!
I was literally laughing out loud at Sam's "yukky orange flowers" comment, and of course they always say those things quite LOUDLY.

Nonnie said...

i love it that your photos fit right in with your blog....who'd have thought you could do that with orange? :) love it...i love the candy picture....just something about it is so inviting!

Karen M said...

Great pics! Your blog looks very inviting. Hope I get the chance to spend some time visiting again soon.

Nice to meet you!!

Carol Anne's Boutique said...

Love the pictures Shann especially your Georgie, cats try to get in the funniest places!

Your little Sam is such a sweetheart...he says the cutest things, always makes me smile!

Take care sweet one~
Love & Hugs,
Carol Anne

Debbie said...

Oh my favorite was your cat! How adorable is this :)

Great job and I had a good time on this one too!! Have a great rest of the weekend :)


Hey Sweetie, you should have taken pics of my red hot pokers while you were here (I hate them but the birds love 'em). BTW, Georgie loves his Nanny too.

Bek said...

Orange is a hard colour, I thing my fav was the orange lollies.

Mikayla got your package today thankyou soooo very much we were so excited. Check out my blog for photos. I just love what you made.

Sharon Ellery said...

I love your cat. We used to have a ginger cat called Rhubarb but he sadly passed away a few years ago - what a character :-)

You will have to go to the Magic Festival next year. It's an absolute ball!

Hi Shannon,
I have a daughter with your name!
I like your orange photos. Especially your cat. We used to have one that same color! I LOVE that you're from Australia! And I love your beautiful work. I've always dreamed of doing something like that. Maybe I'll be inspired by reading your blog. Welcome to the next photo challenge!
