Default Pink and Gray

Pink and Gray seem to be a popular combination this year.

It seems a bit 'weird' to me, though.

In the late 1950's - back when the dinosaurs still walked the earth - that's what the high school guys were wearing - in Minnesota in a tiny rural town!

just a softer version of classic red and black. The combo is attractive to me. I think of my grandfather's birds.

Interesting - I hadn't really thought of pink and gray in that way -

LOL, lots of baby nurseries in this color combo this year. Im actually waiting on some Pink/Grey fabrics (should have them tomorrow). Ive been hired to make a baby quilt for July. Im using a zig zag pattern. If I think of it, will post a pic when done. Personally..I love the combo of the two. Also "in" this year is yellow and grey. Also very nice.

I used to have a pink and grey dress and it was very pretty. I think it is a nice combination; pink and brown is nice too and seems to be popular as well.

Pink and grey were my wedding colors, I still love them. I didn't care much for the pink and brown when they were popular.

When I was little girl, back in the 50's, my moma painted 3 walls in our living room gray and 1 pink. I just loved it.

Pink and gray - I remember this combo, also pale yellow and gray. Both I think must have been used in home decor at one time. Vaguely remember it from Auntie's house. Yellow and gray in kitchen, pink and gray in bath.

NEVER recall guys wearing it but I may have been a little young to have been checking out the guys at Burger Chef!
