Roses for Pink Saturday

Hello sweet bloggerettes~ I hope you all had a splendid week. I know I did, and thank you all so very much for your lovely  comments on my feature in the magazine! 

Are you ready to celebrate another weekend of pink with our hostess Beverly

We enjoy the beauty and colour of pink in so many ways, from sunrises to sunsets and all the flowers in between. 

"I adore simple pleasures. They are the last refuge of the complex." ~ Oscar Wilde 

I had a pretty bouquet of lush pink roses.....

"Pleasure is the flower that passes; remembrance, the lasting perfume." ~ Jean De Boufflers

When they began to fade, I decided I would enjoy them just a while longer in my frenchy teapot.  
The faded beauty of rose petals began to settle onto the table around the teapot. Beautiful!

Faded rose petals; delicate and fragile, timeless like old linen and lace...

They remind me of the quote by Dale Carnegie {1888-1955} who wrote, " One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today." 

I hope that your day is like a beautiful rose. And even as it fades into twilight, enjoy the colours of the sunset while you can! There is only one like it!

Thank you for visiting and I wish you a delightful weekend filled with pink splendor and much love.

Sharing from my heart~ Sandi


  1. Hi Sandi, Such beautiful pink roses. I adore the quote from Oscar Wilde. Rose petals find a way to stay with me after the a bouquet has wilted. I put them on paper towels to add to a pretty dish to enjoy.
    Hope you have a lovely weekend.

  28. Wow, Sandi, I love this pink post. Reminds me why pink is my favorite color. I want to thank you for the nice comments you left on my blog. They were very meaningful to me.

  29. Hi Sandi
    Your roses are so beautiful and I adore them even as they begin to fade and drop their petales. Roses are JUST like that. Lovely...and the sunset is gorgeous too. We love that at the cottage...we love to sit and watch it go down...slowly and then ever so quickly its gone....
    have a great rest of Sunday..
    thank you for your sweet comments about my cookies too...

  30. Hi Sandi!
    Thanks so much for stopping by and your sweet and kind comments. I have really struggled as of late to blog yet when God inspires I knew I must obey and write.
    A huge congrates on your lovely, inspirational blog being featured in one of my all time favorite magazines.

    Hope this finds al so well with you my sweet friend.


  31. Such beautiful roses!
    Greetings from Australia♥

  32. A perfect rose is such a lovely joy..but gentle fading petals have a beauty that is simply matchless too!
    I love the fallen roses in your white teapot.
    So serene..
    love..Trish xx

  33. Sandi, congratulations on your magazine feature. I am still trying to find a copy. I think Kay Ellen is featured in that issue, too. I am so happy for you.

    I love when the petals begin to fall, too, and I always leave them there for a few day. The funny thing is that it drives my mother crazy. She doesn't even like the blooms full opened. She prefers buds.

    Happy Pink Saturday, dear Sandi.♥


I am delighted to have you visit me and I read every comment. Please forgive me for not being able to visit you all as there are so many of you lovely bloggy friends now. I will visit as much as possible. I wish you a day filled with JOY! ~ Sandi
