Pink Day! Really? Yes!

It appears that there is a special day for almost everything!  In June we find days celebrating the egg, donuts, cheese, yo-yos, weed your garden day, chocolate ice cream day, and Father's Day, of course.  Then there are whole weeks set aside for clay and fishing.  And, June is Fruit and Vegetables month and Adopt a Cat month.  I often wonder who decides what we are celebrating on any given day, week, or month.  Is there a place where one can make suggestions?  When searching today, I found that June 23 is Pink Day.  That makes me want to look to see if all the other colors have their own special day!  But, pink is pleasing to the palette, and I've discovered many pink creations among the members of the Boomers and Beyond Etsy Street Team - the BBest Team.  Below are some that would make marvelous gifts for yourself and others.  Enjoy!
