A Rose for Me

Greetings! During my recent trip to Ct I had an hour to spare while my hubby was at an appointment so I headed out to do some window shopping and really had no intention of buying anything. I found a really nice home dec store and since I owned a home dec design store for 8 years I am always interested in seeing what other's  designs look like. The store had great furniture pieces. It was in a very old building and the owners had really used the charm of the past to create a gem for the present. Very sweet husband and wife team, very gracious atmosphere and super well kept store.


Anyway when I was getting ready to leave this little picture caught my eye. It was laying on its side behind a lamp and a floral piece so I couldn't really see it. As a matter of fact in getting it out I tipped a plate and made enough noise for the owner to ask if I needed any help." No, I said I was just trying to see this picture." "Oh , that just came in , Isn't it great?" she said. Well that was all the conversation I needed and at that moment I decided to purchase it. So here it is with all my favorite colors wonderful patina and flowers of course. I think I may find out who distributes this one as it would look nice on the wall of my small vintage garden shop that will open in May.I hope you have a great Pink Saturday and be sure to see what everyone else is collecting in the shades of pink at Beverly's How Sweet the Sound. 
Blessings to you! Meg

I stayed on your blog for a bit after leaving my Pink Sat Comment. Some pretty posts. My heart sunk when I read in your sidebar about the loss of your son. So close to his birthday too. These losses are hard to bear, but I'm glad to see that your faith deepens and that you depend on that faith, which is upon Jehovah! I lift you in prayer. Jenn

Happy Pink Saturday, Meg! I so adore your new picture. The roses with the hydrangea is stunning. How lucky it caught your eye!

I love all your pretty flowers, and I particularly love the pink cone flowers. They remind me of little ballerinas!

Have a lovely weekend!

Cheers!
Tina

Meg, Thanks for visiting me! To answer your question, NO , I don't usually get that many comments but for some reason my simple story of a daughter's love has just caused a tremendous outpouring of emotion from so many people. I am amazed myself! Enjoy your parents while you can. My Mom went to be with my Dad 6 years ago so both of my parents are gone but I know that they are so happy together now.

Hello Meg,

I love, love roses and especially PiNk ones. :0)

The garden shop sounds like fun...are you doing an online with seed and such or a land based?

Lets see...I'm on my 15.5" laptop monitor and all of my blog fits on the screen...I was thinking my template was set to expand or reduce to fit any screen...now I know I'm wrong. :0/ Gosh, I hate that...did you change the screen resolution to get it to fit? Just curious so I can tell the next person that may have the same issue.

Thanks so much for coming over for a visit!

♥ Love & Faerie Dust ♥

Hi Meg,
What a pretty little picture hiding just for you to find:)

So sorry about your being a little blue the other day. I'm sure you miss your son terribly. I can't even imagine. The picture of him and his bride on your sidebar is so good. They are a beautiful couple.
