Pink!



The Polka Dots Girls house on Hebron Avenue in Glastonbury is a place for parties, gifts and "spa" visits for pre-teen girls.  This would be heavenly to lots of young girls.  It would not have worked in my house.  My daughter is a softball, swimming, water polo, diving, saxophone, hiking, yoga, photography, gardening and crafts kind of girl.

To see other posts with pink subjects, please visit the monthly theme page of the City Daily Photo bloggers.

That's what I call an eye catcher.

CaT said...

o wow! that certainly is pink!!! not sure i would want my house to look like this...
i like swimming, but water polo is too tiring for me... haha

Stefan Jansson said...

Wow, indeed. We have a pink house in Tungelsta but I think I have already used it on my blog.

Kate said...

Without question, this building makes a very loud statement that many little girls probably could not resist.

Mo said...

It looks like something out of a children's story book

Marleen said...

Wow.

Gunn said...

Unique and yes a big WOW from me in Stavanger too.

Jim said...

That's full-on.

Luis Gomez said...

Great choice!

Thank you for exercising the leadership to pick the pink theme. You obviously had a good photo lined up for your selection.

I think I am going to show a few more days of pink to continue to theme a bit.

Valladolid Daily Photo said...

Excellent choice for this theme day. Have a good week!

Michelle said...

That is a creative business venture and a colorful house. Our daughters sound much the same!

Dianne said...

Polka-dot pink house ... very unique Jack and I'm sure a very successful business venture.

Sharon said...

You couldn't have found a more perfect building to photograph for theme day. This place might be a bit over the top decor-wise but, it is perfectly painted and maintained.

Sylvia K said...

You certainly couldn't have found a more perfect shot for the theme day! How fun! Hope you're enjoying a great holiday weekend, Jack!

Virginia said...

Now I see why you chose PINK for our theme! That's an eye full Jack. Oh and the guys on yesterday's post are as well. :)

OK, your house is pinker than mine... I am sure you devised all this pink theme day only to be able to post this lovely picture!

Kris said...

wow! you win for the pink-est entry :D

Small City Scenes said...

Pink and polka dots too. Wowee!! Perfect for the theme. good choice. MB

Taken For Granted said...

Jack, that is the most PINK house I've ever seen. Great find.

Lynette said...

Superb post for theme day! Wow!

wilf said...

Looks fun to be in this house....

Sue said...

Before I even read your description I knew where that house was located. What an eye catcher.

SRQ said...

Oh, my! That's a PINK house. This could have inspired John Mellencamp's song 'Little PInk Houses'. I can't imagine living there...but, it is eyecatching and well maintained. Hope all's well in your world!

RedPat said...

No wonder you chose pink as our theme, Jack! This place is fabulous. ;-))

PerthDailyPhoto said...

Yup, that wouldn't have worked for Aimee either Jack :) but I can just imagine there would be many a pre teen that has had heaps of fun here!

Karl Demetz said...

Well Jack, this is the King of Pink!
Excellent photo for this theme, as expected :)

Kay said...

GREAT choice! I have a grand niece who'd move in there in a heartbeat.

cieldequimper said...

Oh gosh, is that the reason why you opted for pink?? :-)
This is amazing!

Suzanne said...

What fun, my daughter would have loved it!

jennyfreckles said...

That is certainly PINK. Not that my daughter would have fallen for it either.

Revrunner said...

Whoa, now! Now that's pink. :-)

LONDONLULU said...

Love this amazing pink! Even though I'm not quite a girly girl either:), those polka dot awnings are pretty sweet.

William Kendall said...

Definitely hard to miss that!

Bob Crowe said...

Yow, what an eye-burner!. My daughter is of a similar mind to yours. Little Madeleine will never have a Barbie doll, she says.

Randy said...

Would not be hard to find if they told you to look for the pink house.

Joan Perry; Sidewalk Curator said...

Oh, that hurts my eyes just to look at it!

Barbara Farr said...

It does get your attention.

Oakland Daily Photo said...

Yow. The pinkest of pink. With polka dots to boot. Is anyone else troubled that pre-teen girls are being pushed more and more into activities previously reserved for teens and young women? Good on your daughter for not having any of it.

Susie said...

Man - what a house. Working there could give a person a migraine!

In all fairness, I think you're making me sound a lot cooler than I am these days, dad. More like 'gardening, DIY, pets, and photography when I can remember/if my battery's charged'.

JM said...

You won, Jack! This is the coolest entry I've seen. Fantastic!

EG CameraGirl said...

HA! That's really something! It wouldn't have worked for either of my two daughters either. My girls have never wanted to be princesses. :))

Tanya Breese said...

makes me think of hansel and gretal!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Okay, you really needed to have PINK as a theme with this photo hanging around! Love the candy look to this place but I hope that it is zoned commercial. Otherwise the neighbors would have to have sunglasses!

Thanks for setting up the CDP group theme this month!

Bises,
Genie

Chrissy Brand said...

Wow, stunning Jack!

Spiderdama said...

Wow! Very special for the pink theme. Best ever!:-)

Linda said...

Excellent choice!
