Vintage Pinks

The serene philosophy of the pink rose is steadying.
It’s fragrant, delicate petals open fully and are ready to fall,
with regret or disillusion, after only a day in the sun.
It is so every summer .One can almost hear their pink,
fragrant murmur as they settle down upon the grass:
“Summer, summer, it will always be summer.”

~Rachel Peden

This pretty white sugar bowl I found at  Ross for 2 dollars. The Pink flowers are from my Society Garlic Plant. I never knew that they would make such a nice arrangement and the flowers last a long time in water.

Hi Clara, I am glad I found your lovely blog so that I could see your beautiful dishes and things. I have a very small collection of floral plates and enjoy looking at them and using them. The pillow you made is adorable. I would like to invite you to join me at Your Cozy Home Party each Mon. at 8pm. Your pretty things are just what we like to see. Come if you can, would love to have you there.-------Shannon
