Pink Roses for Pink Saturday

Hello everyone and welcome to my Pink Saturday post.

I don't know about you, but I sure do miss my flowers this time of year, especially my roses! I am looking forward to Spring already.

Today I thought I would do a little collage of my roses from last Summer. They are accompanied by some lovely tea things which are adorned with pink roses. I hope you enjoy!

My roses have always reminded me of peonies because they get so big, fluffy and fragrant.

I love pink rose petals strewn about the table, don't you?

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you will stop by and visit Beverly and all her pinkies this weekend.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT~ I would also like to invite you all to join me next week for Tea Time Tuesday's 2nd Anniversary/Birthday Party.
I am doing a Rose theme so just share your favourite rose themed tea things. Old and new friends are welcome to join me. If you have never joined me before and you would like to, you are more than welcome!

Wishing you all a delightfully pink weekend.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. So pretty Sandi! And yes, I am in serious flower withdrawal! I can't wait for Spring. I already have my tea post ready for your upcoming party! I am so proud of myself for getting it done early! LOL Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. A beautiful collage. Your roses do look look like peonies. V

  3. Your roses from the summer were such a treat today. Thank you.

  4. Oh so pretty- *almost* as pretty as your new picture you are using!

  5. Hi Sandi,
    What a pretty collage of your china and roses...I, too, am yearning for spring and have a list started for my first trip to the nursery! I LOVE those trips!
    Have you gotten some of those wicked storms of snow and ice? I probably should not say this, but so far, they have missed us. Now I have jinxed us for sure!
    Have a happy week and weekend!

  6. Gorgeous roses! I do miss flowers blooming in the yard at this time of year.

  7. HI Sandi,

    Oh, yes, those roses are lovely :) :) There are a couple of roses in the backyard that are managing to hang on...just barely :) :) I sure do LOVE the floral tea things that are in the photos with your roses...just beautiful :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather :)

  8. So pretty!

    Come and see my PINK, you can also link with my Color Connection meme. Happy Pink Saturday.

  9. I would love to know the name of that pink rose you have in your photographs. I love roses and I am always looking for new ones.
    Beautiful pictures.

  10. Love your pink you are sharing with us today. Love the pink Peonies they are so pretty

  11. I enjoy and love roses no matter when they were grown.

  12. Your collage is so prettyy..i can smell the roses and am longing for spring myself

  13. A lovely post as always. Your photography is always perfect! Our flowers...or the stumps of the perennials are under a foot of snow at the moment....

  14. I agree about missing the fresh flowers Sandi that is for sure....just to clarify is the "rose tea" THIS Tuesday or the following week? If you could let me know that would be great - I have something special for you and I don't want to miss out. Take care!

  15. Nevermind Sandi - I just saw it on your blog sidebar!!! YAAA It is this week! Sweet!

  16. very pretty tea set... makes me want to brew a cup!

  17. Hi sweet Sandi....thanks for your visit...always so kind to stop by. I am missing my flowers too. Our fall was so long and roses were blooming until just recently.I'd love to join your party. You told me how before Christmas, so will go back to find your directions.
    Love, Linda

    PS...Pink/roses/flowers/tea-there isn't much better that those lovely things God has given us!

  22. Beautiful Sandi . I always try to save the petals from roses.
    Here's to a bountiful garden of blooming roses (())

  23. Beautiful images Sandi! I can't wait for Spring either! I'm going to try and put something together to join your Rose Themed party to help celebrate your anniversary! Have a great weekend xox

  24. They do look like peonies--I am wondering if they are an old fashioned rose. I can almost smell them!

  25. yes I miss my flowers...I am looking for a warm day to go outside and see if the dafodills are poking their heads up!

  26. Love the collage of your roses! Pink are my very favorite, for as far back as I can remember! Winter seems more dreary with the absence of these beautiful blooms, don't you think??
    You always have such lovely posts. Thank you for sharing and bringing a few moments of sunshine
    on a dreay day!!

  27. Sandi, the roses are so pretty. I'm counting down to spring too! Laura
