~ New Years Roses ~ Thank You ~



Happy New Year everyone!!
I hope you all had a wonderful New Years Eve.
...

When I went grocery shopping I picked up these roses.I love the coulours and the lightly tattered edges.  My husband thought they looked like they were wilting but I think they are beautiful just as they are.
And for only $5 I couldn't resist. (Safeway)
I put them in an antique white ironstone pitcher I found at a thriftstore for a few dollars.



I started my after Christmas deep cleaning yesterday and was decluttering and moving things around so I sat the roses on my farmhouse table in the living room.
 I was walking past this space with the sun streaming thru today and thought it would be a pretty photo. lol.



Today I am finishing up housework and spending time with my family.
Just thought I would do a quick post and share the photos I took today. :)



~ And I wanted to say THANK YOU so much friends for your wonderful and thoughtful comments on my blog this past year. I am so thankful for you all. ~
Have a wonderful new week!
xo,
Rachel

The flowers are lovely! I like them a little wilted. As some get more wilted, separate the good ones and put them in smaller containers!

You are ahead of the game getting all prettied up...I need some motivation. Christmas is still alive and well here!!

Loved getting to know you this year, Rachel, and always love when you stop by. Happy 2012!

XO,
Jane

Rachel -
To the left of my computer screen sits a dozen pink roses just like yours. I had to lean over and smell them as I read your post.
Yours are truly lovely. Love your ironstone pitcher too!
