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
