Seeing Coral

Everywhere I look, I see this beautiful color. 
My daughter and I did some shopping over the weekend
and I can't get over how much coral-colored happy was all around.
Have you noticed it too?
Here are some of my favorite finds that I wish were mine, all mine!



But suppose you want just a hint of coral?

I think I really may need to buy this sweet starfish necklace!

My daughter fell in love with this dress, so needless to say, I bought it for her!

As if coral is not pretty enough on its own, look at how pretty it looks
 paired with aqua.
Shannon, this part is for you!

So tell me.  What do you think of coral? 

Just so you know, this sweet jacket leapt into my arms in Macys. 
Would you believe it if I told you there was only one
hanging on a remote rack with nothing else around it and
 it just happened to fit me?
Hmmm....very strange.   

There was no way I was letting it go. 
Let the coral madness begin!

Have a good one.


Welcome! I'm Gina. Like the header says, this blog is all about home, food and life..


  1. I love how colors come around again. You're too young to remember the first "go round" of coral. I always loved the softness of the color...a muted orange really.

    Love the dress you bought your daughter and I KNOW that God put that coat all by itself just so you could find it. Great find! xo Diana

  2. Oh lovely. I unfortunately cannot wear coral easily. I did see a coral and cream striped rug (9X12) at HomeSense yesterday and was so lovely.
    Gina, I am having a fireplace party, hope you drop by and show off your lovely fireplace.

  3. Loving the pops of coral I see. Makes me feel so summery! Love the jacket...I may have to just keep my eyes open for something coral...a gift to birthday is in June!! Hugs, Linda

  4. Cute jacket! And yes, I've notice the coral this season. I just bought a coral sweater. I like it on me better than orange. But seems orange is popular too.

  5. Hi Gina,

    I love the color. It's gorgeous with turquoise.


  6. You know, I have also noticed this color is everywhere this year and I have to tell you that I love it! I have been thinking of where I could incorporate it in our home. Thank you for sharing these ideas!

  7. Oh I bet that looks stunning on you.
    Cute little dress for your daughter.
    I had picked up recently two tops of coral. Love the colour.

  8. Love, love, love to wear coral. I love the way it makes my skin look. Tan and healthy. Great for after the winter time when I get as pale as can be...Hee, hee, hee. Love it paired up with aqua too. Wishing you a wonderful new week my friend.

    Much love,

  9. Yes, I have noticed Coral everywhere. Especially have seen lots of fabrics of coral and aqua. I just bought a crochet vest that was Coral. In fact I am wearing it in the pic at Slide Rock. I almost bought a pair of sandals but changed my mind at the last minute. Love your jacket. One thing about Coral. They'll see us coming. lol!

  10. Hi Gina,
    I love coral! Coral and turquoise are my favorite summertime colors!
    Have a happy week.
    Hugs, Cindy

  11. Coral is a beautiful color and really like the way it goes so well with aqua!

  12. Now, that is a cute jacket!!! Great color for you, but not for me....I'm seeing so much aqua for spring/summer.....enjoy!!!

  13. LOVE you jacket! Great color for spring and summer too. And the dress you got for your daughter was adorable!

  14. Gina,
    Oh I've noticed and just bought a purse in that color. Ha! Ha! I'm with the crowd.

  15. You will have to model the coat for us, bet it looks adorable on you. I can wear coral, so have been 'forced' to buy several outfits!I really like that coral chest w/ the stripes...very pretty.

  16. Loving the coral...great rug and pillow!!

  17. Gina, I love your new coral jacket and your daughter's dress. And you should definitely order one of those starfish necklaces. It's gorgeous. Coral is one of my favorite colors to wear. I went shopping this weekend, too, and saw lots of coral. I was trying to match some green shoes, so I didn't get any coral things. I even love ORANGE!

  18. Hi Gina! Yes, the coral is lovely and so is your new jacket! Thanks for popping in to see me.
    BE a sweetie,
    shelia ;)

  19. I like it, Gina! Are you wearing it this spring?

  20. Darling jacket. I worked at Macys for years... that stuff really does leap up at you. I can attest to that ;)

  21. Coral is in my color wheel and that jacket would look so fabulous on me...put it in your will for me. I knew orange was an emerging color this spring, I guess coral is close!


  22. Gina- I bet you look very chic in that gorgeous jacket! I especially love coral with aqua or turquoise for a great summer combo! Oh - and that rug and pillow!
    Thanks for visiting today. Talk to you soon!
    Blessings, L

  23. Love it! I'm sure you realize you have no choice when things just jump into your basket or arms. :-)
