Honouring Pink

A very pink day at work

October 25 2013 was a very pink day at work for breast cancer awareness. Work pods were decorated in pink and we all wore pink clothes or had some element of pink on our attire. There was also a bake off and the theme was of course pink. I was tied up with some work so wasn't present for the bake off sampling so there are unfortunately no pictures of that.

It's a pity that not everyone at work participated in the pink theme. We all work very hard but it's also nice and respectful to participate for causes.

So here is the pink theme of my group. Best said of course as always in pictures.

these are a few of our favourite pinks 


Paper roses - so cleverly done


pink duckies 


some very clever artistry here

This is a day I do want to remember in honour of all breast cancer survivors, sufferers and those who lost their battle with it. 2 in my family are survivors and 1 succumbed to it - this post is for you all.


And keeping with the pink and work theme for the Thursday Challenge Landscape prompt, here is a picture I took a couple of months ago at the start of Winter from my workplace. (Added a pink hue to keep it in with the pink theme)

  1. Hi Suzy ~~ You folks went all out at your work for the Go Pink day.

    Mrs. Jim and I got flu shots Thursday at the Kroger Pharmacy here. They were trick or treating kids that night but some came already in the moring in costumes. One fellow, a pharmacy clerk, dressed like a woman, wearing a pink wig and a pink t-shirt. He was very tall. For sure he got a lot of comments from the customer that required him to explain his get-up. He was a nice guy.

    1. We sure did Jim. Some of the guys wore pink wigs too. I'm glad so many of us got into the spirit of this.

  2. Forgot to say that the pink rubber duckies were my favorites. I like rubber ducks. We got to see the giant yellow rubber duckie when he was in Sydney, Aus, in January of this year.

    1. Glad you liked the rubber duckies - they looked so cute sitting next to the weta (very creepy).
