~PINK SATURDAY~

Warm and cozy greetings to all my Pink Saturday friends....I want to thank Beverly of How Sweet The Sound... for tirelessly hosting this wonderful event each Saturday! We have so much fun thanks to her! And, please, use the link to find lots and lots of beautiful pink blogs to visit today.

The pink treasure, below, I found at TJ Maxx....You do not know the excitement I felt when I found this!!!! I looked and looked for another, but this was the only pink one....we are leaving for NY, next Wednesday, to spend Thanksgiving with our daughter and her family and I will be heading for their TJ Maxx for some treasure hunting....they rarely have the same thing in each of their stores, but with a little luck, maybe I will find another.










These are a few of my pinks around the house....the bowl was my first piece with my beloved transfer roses...I acquired it while living in Manassas, Va. at Laws Auction House. I will never forget the thrill when I won it and I have carefully packed it for each move we made across our country.....
The header over the door was done by a dear friend in California several years ago. Roses have always been a lovely part of my life. It all started with my Mom's beautiful rose garden when I was a girl in Omaha, NE. I knew the names of all of her many bushes and used to love looking over the catalogs with both my parents....such a sweet memory! I try to have many of the same roses in my garden today, but I have a hard time with roses here. I think it is all the humidity and it promotes many of the molds....today even, our humidity was 93%.......
And, here is a bit of work I did this week....they are available at my EBAY and I invite you to take a peek....




And a few pieces from a large custom order I just finished:






Happy Pink Saturday! Thank you for visiting and thank you for all your nice comments....it is such a joy to read them!
Have a wonderful week.....I will be gone next week so I will see you all the first Saturday in December.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Jil

The candle holder was a great find! It would have come home with me too. Everything else is delicious and scrumptious and pink, just as I've come to expect! Happy Pink Saturday and have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful new little "booties" I love the embroidery you do on them. Also surprised to see one of my over the door rose
creations. I remember the days I use to paint and had my Gift Shop. We had lots of fun in those days with the Craft Shows and all the friends coming by.You just get better and better with each creation you do.....Blessings - Pauline

Happy Pink Saturday. I love all the roses and your TJ Maxx finds.
I think it's wonderful that your Mother inspired your love of roses.

Nancy @ La Chambre Rose said...

Your work always sets the bar so high for all! Gorgeous, Jil.

Okay, so I say cross the river and come to Stowe, everyone loves a New England village! Or, we can meet you somewhere, if it doesn't snow! LOL! You know I won't get in a car if it is snowing. How did this upstate New Yorker become such a southern gal?

If you come here, you can enter the "trim room"! HA!!!

Happy Pink Saturday and Thanksgiving!

Jil, I will keep my eyes open and see if I can spot another candle holder like that down here! Loved all of your pretty pinks! Roses are some of my favorites, and my paternal grandmother had roses on her china. Yours is beautiful.

Happy Pink Saturday to you...

XO,

Hi my friend, I hope you have a wonderful time with your daughter and have a great Thanksgiving day. You will certainly enjoy shopping at places a bit different from the ones at home. I do hope you find your candle holder and I will be on the lookout at our TJMaxs for you as well. Happy Pink Saturday and I love your collection of china, what gorgeous roses Jil, Char
