Paint by Flowers...

I had a fun morning garage sailing in the rain:-)
Only one good sale to be found...
but she had lots of wonderful goodies:-)

(click photos to enlarge)

This plate is my only pretty in pink find though...
It is stamped Bavaria..


The dainty hand painted roses are dreamy...

They reminded me of the roses
on the "Cottage Rose " bush in the front garden.

Since I can't paint dreamy roses,
(although I wish I could)
I decided that I could... 
 paint by flowers...


So here is my little replica :-)


Happy Pink Saturday Everyone!
Have a Great Weekend!

I am joining...
 Beverly at How Sweet The Sound


Thanks for visiting me today!

Hi Bella :) That is such a sweet plate you found, I love the pretty handpainted pink roses on it. I too wish I could paint roses, but I have to leave it up to those who do :)

Have a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

Warmest hugs, Brenda

A very lovely find. And how brave of you to go out in the rain, looking for garage sales.

You have such a beautiful garden. What I so admire about your blog is that you share the name of your plants/flower/joy with your blog followers so that we who dream may some day act! God Bless your garden as you have blessed us! With love-Karen

Bella, your new plate is very pretty. And the "painting" by flowers is lovely.

Beautiful, Bella! And the best time to go garage 'sailing' is in the rain. No one else is there to nab the bargains first! lol!

A very lovely plate, Bella, and you added the perfect touch... my god, are they roses or peonies, can´t identify them.

Dear Bella,

Indeed, we only can dream of those perfect near-lifelike painted roses! Well, I did do two blogs about a friend that lives in France, Paris and she got it into her fingers as she did beautiful wooden boxes for me, to use for my Boutique. Check it out!
Your garden yields such perfect flowers, you do far better than we here in the southeast where it gets way too hot.

Greetings from Georgia/USA
