Pink Summer Bouquets


Whether fresh cut, or stitched on a freshly laundered cloth, a few sprays of flowers go a long way toward pleasing my eye and my need for something pretty. Especially at the end of a long hot work week.



A cheery table cover with a bit of hand-stiched pink just makes me feel a little more civilized. The roses on top are a bonus. Sometimes the gift we offer should simply be for ourselves. I'm a bit selfish this way. But I learned a long time ago. . . .  If mama ain't happy, ain't nobody happy.























I hope you get a little time out to smell the roses!
Happy Pink Saturday!
Ciao! for now!

All of your pink bouquets are lovely. Everything is your home is lovely. I think your have a special touch, everything you touch turns beautiful. Your sideboard redo is gorgeous, the taupe color in the pottery and the white makes me want to change my hutch. I love the color combo, my house exterior is painted taupe with white trip. Thanks for sharing all your loveliness. I'll be your newest follower.
