The Fiat showroom on Wigmore Street in London, England. Celebrating Barbie's 50th birthday, the car company varnished the Fiat 500 in her favorite pretty in pink nail polish. How cool is this!

Milan, design Mecca of the universe, is touched by pink, too. A centuries old, gray stone building, a guard in basic black, and a touch of pink! C'mon man, put your smile on, you are standing beside the happy colour for goodness sake!

Thank you to Beverly from How Sweet the Sound for hosting our weekly meeting of the Pinkers.

Thanks for visiting on this last Saturday of February.
