Happy Pink Saturday to one and all!

Happy Pink Saturday to one and all! I missed being able to participate last week due to computer problems but thankfully things are better this weekend. Last night I decided to share some pics with you that I took awhile back. The first one is of a flower in my back yard on a rather old fashioned bush called a rose of sharon. The ones I have are all volunteers and I have some pink bushes and some white ones. I love them(partly because they are volunteers) for the gorgeous abundant blooms and because my grandmothers used to have them in their gardens. I wish I inherited their green thumbs but I seem to have a furry thumb instead(as in cats and dogs tend to love me).

The second pic is of some fake roses I keep in my bedroom. I love the "pop" of the pink roses against the contrast of the cobalt walls. I keep them in a pitcher/bowl that my step-mother Freda made in a ceramics class before my father met her. Their anniversery is 9-22-00. She is a real blessing to our whole family. I'm not sure how she got stuck with all of us (but I sure am glad!)


The last pic I took when my neice Claire and I went out looking for rusty things a while back for the Shades of Inspiritation group I belong to on Flickr.com. Lots and lots of fun. It is just a little window box with some pink flowers doing their best to grow. I love the lace curtains the slightly delapidated charm of the house/business. It was hard to tell which it was.

Well thanks for stopping by today. Don't forget to see all the other nice ladies particapating today at Beverly's http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/. Have a great pink week. Susan

I could not believe the roses in your bedroom are 'faux', they look so real!
My favorite is the Rose of Sharon, you captured its glory beautifully!

I love the window shot!

Love all the pink things. Glad your computer is up again. What did we women do before computers came along? No blogging. That's for sure.

Happy Pink Saturday!!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog post today. I didn't have your e-mail address, so I'm answering your question about my coffee filter roses here.

I am working on a tutorial that I should have available soon in my etsy shop. I've been putting it off until the roses have been published in an upcoming Stampington magazine.

What sweet things you said about your step-mom!!! Love the windowbox picture---such a great statement. My mom used to have rose of sharon bushes, too!

Glad you liked the denture post--now you must snag a castoff set or two at work and do a little Autumnal decorating! Dana

I just love Rose of Sharon. It's such a pretty old fashioned kind of flower. And now you tell me they send out volunteers. My neighbor has a Rose of Sharon and I am going to go there this week and see if there are any volunteers I might have. Happy Pink Belated Saturday ~ Lynn
