This weekend Beverly @How Sweet the Sound is celebrating 6 years of Pink Saturdays!
Magenta is the new pink.
Inside the house he has also covered some of the plinths, on which the marble and mosaic sculptures rest, in magenta, too. They are quite striking and our guide told us that they take some getting used to. He wasn't a fan of them, personally.
The Chatsworth lions were commissioned by the 6th Duke of Devonshire in 1823. The sleeping lion was made by Rinaldo Rinaldi; the crouching lion by Francesco Benaglia after the famous lions made by Antonia Canova for the Rezzonico Monument in St Peters, Rome.
The Chatsworth lions each weigh 3.5 tonnes!
If you're feeling in the pink yourself why not pop over to How Sweet the Sound
to see who else is partying and wish Beverly a very Happy Birthday.
I'm sure she'll be very happy to see you.
