Beautiful Pink Roses

On Tuesday I had a trip to the dentist - if anyone knows me they will know just how much I hate going to the dentist but it's something we must do. While doing a quick bit of grocery shopping afterwards I saw this beautiful bunch of flowers. They had been reduce from $26.00 to $8.00 - what a steal.

Once I had them home and arranged I decided to put them on our tv cabinet but I must admit the dust nearly choked me!!!LOL So I decided on this nice sunny morning to start some spring cleaning.

I thought this little bird house fitted in really well with the floral pitcher I had for the flowers - just love that glass knob for the perch.

This print had originally been on the wall in my family room but had been changed around a bit so I brought it back in to match the other two I have hanging above the tv cabinet.

I added this little streetscape to the display as I thought the whole look needed something darker on this side - to even up the lovely dark green foliage. I have had these hand painted houses and church for many years. They are just too pretty to throw out.

I can see one of my prints is hanging a bit crooked - don't you just hate that when you see the photos - so I have attended to that and now have every thing looking ok.

Spring cleaning certainly makes you feel good - now I just need to do a little more..

Very very pretty vignette you've created there! I love the pink roses and pink stargazers are one of my fave flowers. Love what you've done. Stopping by from SOYCM.

Happens to me all the time...I didn't realize that this or that was wrong until I see the picture. Beautiful little vignettes and I like that glass knob for a perch, too. You know how to take good care of yourself buying such lovelies...we should all do it more often!

Your roses are gorgeous. They just bring everything to life. Love your vignette. The birdhouse and you little village are both stunning, such lovely pieces. I really like the idea of the two prints on the wall and then a matching on standing on the table. Very pretty and so creative. Looks wonderful Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty
