A Handfull...

As the seasons change here
and the weather gets wetter...

Somethings dry up..

(click photos to enlarge)

Like garage sales and roses...


But last weekend
I was lucky to stumble on a little sale
and these delicate hands...

A pretty Lefton China
hand vase...


The hands that hold roses...


I was lucky today to enjoy these roses...
the colours are getting splotchy
from the cold evenings

But their beauty still mesmerizes me...



And come visit Laurie for.

Also...
I have been working on a link list for blog parties,
there are so many I can't keep them straight!
If you would like to check it out
it is on my tab bar
right under my header:-)

Thanks for joining me today!

What a sweet vignette! The reverse is true where I live, it's in the Autumn and Winter that the weather becomes temperate enough that we can now begin to have our Flea and Tag Sales as the temps finally dip below 100 degrees! And the Flowers can last longer than when it's 110+. *smiles*

Very pretty hand vase, and how perfect to hold your precious roses!

Roselle said...

Gorgeous....these hands were such a find!!! I like the roses not so "perfect". Kind of like the tattered and shabby things so many of us love. They are almost more beautiful.
Happy PS

What a beautiful post for pink saturday. Love the pink roses and the hands that hold them. Take care and enjoy the weekend.

Lavender Cottage said...

What a lovely prop you found to hold your roses Bella. I still have dried pink roses from #1 daughter's wedding 16 years ago and they're as special today as they were then.
Have a good weekend.

Hi Bella :) Fantastic find at that sale; I too have a Lefton hand vase, and I keep a couple of dried roses that I had gotten from hubby years ago in it. Hope you are having a good weekend!

Lovely, Bella. Your photos are a little bit symbolic and make me think of a Chinese proverb : A bit of fragrance clings to the hand that gives flowers.

Have a nice week
