Sweetness...

After a few days
without a hint of pink...

It is time to return to the sweetness
of Pink...


A pretty in Pink bowl
from the thrift store...


Accompanied by Mary Rose....


Makes my heart sing...


Attention to detail
is one of the qualities
I appreciate in vintage dishes...

Adding these roses
to the underside of a shallow bowl
seldom to be seen...
Makes a delightful view for those willing to notice!


Today's tablecloth
another favorite pink purchase

A set of long curtain panels and valances
(long enough to skim the floor of my tall Victorian windows)

 Maybe I will make pillows 
or use them as curtains :-)

Almost certainly you will see them for now
used as a pretty sheer tablecloth :-)



I hope you find your bit of sweetness this weekend!

Dearest Bella,

What a treasures you show there on the underside of your bowl... Have you ever checked the book: The Ultimate Ribbon Book by Annabel Lewis (hardcover)? It is on Amazon now under used books too and for a steal now. You will love those hand embroidered roses in there!

Have a great weekend with sun from Georgia (ah, had a power outage last night; 3 x... so couldn't blog)

Hello Bella
Putting your roses together of different mediums has created an awesome photo. Wouldn't it be nice to have drapes and pillows to match of the pink fabric?

That bowl is a real treasure. It is beautiful. I thought maybe you had taken the floral from it and embroidered a coordinating piece! They go together so perfectly. Lovely post. Connie
