Another Pink Saturday

Hello Most Pink Ones and welcome to Pink Saturday. All this Pinkness is hosted by our Sweet Pink Beverly at http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/ Go visit her and you'll have a day filled with Pinkness.

Today I would love to show you the most beautiful Pink roses given to me by a couple who joined us for Christmas dinner. There were five of the most lovely Pink roses in a little clear vase and other greenery was added. All of this was tied with a filmy Pink ribbon.
The fragrance was amazing and how I have enjoyed my roses. I think they look so pretty sitting on my coffee table in the den with the carpet peeking up through the glass, Christmas candle flickering and a crackling fire in the background. I'm going to try to keep this memory fresh in my mind and relive it over and over again.

Happy Pink Saturday, sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~
La Vie en Rose
La Vie En Rose

Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is La vie en rose

When you kiss me heaven sighs
And tho I close my eyes
I see La vie en rose

When you press me to your heart
I'm in a world apart
A world where roses bloom

And when you speak...angels sing from above
Everyday words seem...to turn into love songs

Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose
~sung by - I don't know :(

  1. The roses look gorgeous - beautiful soft colour and the pink ribbon just sets them off. Is that your new carpet we are peeking at? Say a big hello from Australia to your Mom - hope she is feeling better.

  31. Hi Shelia! What beautiful roses! What a nice gift from your guests! Nothing beats the smell of roses for me. You chose one of my favorite songs. I guess it's the French teacher in me! Edith Piaff did the original in French and Louis Armstrong does a nice version in English, believe it or not! Hope your mom is continuing to improve. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers...Debbie

  39. Hi Kiddo! Those roses are wonderful--thanks for sharing them with us.

    I just read your previous post re your mom's update. I'm glad her arm has already started to mend--OMG the story you shared about her "seeing things" while on that pain med was terrible--and a bit funny. I know it WAS NOT THE LEAST BIT FUNNY as you were trying to get some sleep so you could take her to the doc, but the way you told it--it was humorous.

    I know you are over your head busy, but if you have time, come sign up on my post--#100 and I'm having a giveaway!!
