Pink Friday at MMP ~ Coming Up Roses

I’ve never seen a rose I didn’t love. From the first blossom of spring, gently swaying in the breeze, to an intricately stitched needlepoint, rich in history, I love them all.
Roses represent so many wonderful things and are often used to celebrate special milestones such as weddings, births and anniversaries. Roses have also been used throughout the centuries in estate and cottage gardens, home décor and fashion. Milliners used silk roses to embellish the finest hats, while seamstresses stitches the richest brocade drapes adorned with roses. Throughout the years, famous artists have studied and painted every aspect of the rose. Antique lithographs and post cards from the 1800s grace our homes today with their everlasting beauty while roses continue to gracefully fit every lifestyle and décor. If you have a soft spot for roses, won’t you please join us for PINK FRIDAY at Make Mine Pink on Friday October 24th. The boutiques at Make Mine Pink are pleased to present “Coming up Roses.”

My New Finds~ Show & Tell Tuesday

Show & Tell Tuesday
Saturday I went to a auction on my street. I remember seeing the old man working on his yard all the time. I was amazed how well he kept his home up. Well I found out Saturday that he passed away and his wife is in a home. I wondered where he was. Well I went to the auction and was amazed that I won this beautiful set. It was like they gave it away to me. I thought about how his family used to sit at this beautiful set for the holidays. They must have cherished it, because it was in wonderful shape. I had so much fun decorating the room Sunday and thinking of that sweet ole' man and family. I think this set has touched my heart and I love the story behind it. Enjoy!

In the Hope Chest~ Pink Friday

I Remember when I was a child, the mystery surrounding a hope chest was almost more than I could bear. I didn't even understand the concept, but knew it was something special and I wanted one of my own some day. Every year my older sister received something for Christmas "for your hope chest." As the years passed, I started to understand that the meaning of owning a "Hope Chest" was different for everyone. For some it was planning for a special wedding day that was sure to come, others used it to store heirloom linens and treasures passed down from generations, and yet for some, it held sad memories of dreams never realized. If you've been lucky enough to have a hope chest or perhaps had a glimpse into someone's, you'll find that no matter the purpose, each "Hope Chest" tells a story. What's yours?
