Show and Tell Friday: Pink roses

show-and-tell.jpg Kelli at There’s No Place Like Home hosts “Show and Tell Friday” asking “Do you have a something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, an antique find. Your show and tell can be old or new. Use your imagination and dig through those old boxes in your closet if you have to! Feel free to share pictures and if there’s a story behind your special something, that’s even better! If you would like to join in, all you have to do is post your “Show and Tell” on your blog, copy the post link, come over here and add it to Mr. Linky.

I am drawn to pink roses. I just love them. I thought today I’d show you just a few of the things around my home with pink roses on them.

My stoneware is Pfaltzgraff’s Tea Rose pattern.

My living room furniture has pink roses in the fabric pattern.

My reading corner

This is a small topiary that I found at our Christian bookstore.

These aren’t pink, but I deliberately chose sheers with roses in the lace pattern. 🙂 The swags that go over these are also pink with very light roses in the pattern.

Roses on curtains

I bought the little heart-shaped vase and my husband bought the taller figure for me. I think it is possibly supposed to be a candle holder, but I have never put a candle in it. And you see a little of the living room wallpaper with pink roses on it behind them.

Pink roses

My husband bought this for me (doesn’t he have good taste? 🙂 ) I love how it fits in with the wallpaper. I am sorry it is dark and not very clear — I was having a hard time trying not to get my reflection in the glass and not having a glare from the flash.

Pink rose prints

I was delighted to find this for $2 or $3 at Hobby Lobby!

Pink rose tissue box

I didn’t get this just for the pink roses on the front. 🙂 It has beautiful letters, sayings, and illustrations in it. I got it at the Cracker Barrel restaurant years ago.

Book with pink roses

I also got this little pillow at Cracker Barrel. Some day I want to learn how to do ribbon embroidery.

Pillow

Some friends from church bought a little coffee and gift shop and turned it into a restaurant. They sold off all the little gifts at clearance prices and this little miniature armoire was one I couldn’t resist.

I got tis print for about $6 at a frame shop and then found an inexpensive mat and frame for it. I loved everything about it — the Victorian feel, the peacefulness of the feel, the girl reading (another love of mine!), and the roses.

Pink roses in art

My husband got this for me at our Christian bookstore.

Wall art

This is the carpet on our bedroom floor. It was here when we got here and probably has been here for ages — its discolored in places, but I just love it.

Pink roses on carpet

I got this years ago at a Home Interiors party and loved the front porch with flowers and the mom stopping what she was doing to hug her child and see what he had drawn.

Outside:

'Tis the last rose of summer...

With the exception of the big wall print my husband bought, most of it wasn’t much money at all.

I know too much pink and too many roses can seem too sweet and cloying, and really, believe it or not, I try not to let it overpower the house. We do have some rooms with little or no pink or roses in them, my concession to living with all males. My husband doesn’t mind, but my sons complained about “all the flowers” when they were younger. I think they’ve gotten used to it now…though they may have been trying to tell me something here:
