I'm celebrating Pink Saturday with Beverly at How Sweet The Sound with a rosey post. I have enjoyed picking "bouquets" of roses wherever I can find them "growing". They help to make my house feel pretty even when it is messy and stinky.
These two old paint-by-number arrangements were found growing at a little antique store in Batesville, Arkansas. I was delighted to discover they were priced $5.00 for the pair! I am intrigued by vintage paint-by-number, as I don't think I have the personality to follow the directions to completion...I'm not a color-inside-the-lines, or follow-the-recipe kind of girl. So, thank you to the mysterious and patient artist from the past for these lovely bouquets.
I enjoy finding sweet plates to decorate a little wall space. Usually my plates are mismatched, but when I spied these little roses sweetly growing on a Goodwill shelf, I had to snatch them up and run...after paying of course.
The beautiful colors in the old print below attracted my attention. My eyes drink in the soft blend of rich colors. I hope to use this picture soon as an inspiration jumping off place to completely redo my living room. My yellow paint is getting tired and old. Oh....okay...I'm getting old...and I'm tired of looking at it! lol! I would really like to live in the little cottage behind the pretty lady. Isn't it dreamy?
Below is another little cheapy thrift store picture that called to me from its shelf, "Melony, come buy me. You know you love bouquets in muted soft colors!" For $2.00, I answered the call and surely, someday, maybe, eventually, perhaps, if I get around to it, I might paint the frame...or maybe not. sigh.
Oh my, there are lots more bouquets on the walls of my humble abode, but that is enough for one Pink Saturday! Thanks for stopping by, and how about stopping by for a minute at Pam's Treasures-n-Textures Blog? She is a fabric artist and has a very interesting and creative blog that is worth a peek!
