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 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 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.
