Please join Grandma G's for shopping with a twist on Friday
February 26th 2010 as we present "Romantic Roses"!

For as long as I can remember, roses have captured a very special piece of my heart. From the gentle scent of the first spring rose, to a delicate hand painted rose on a favorite piece of re-purposed furniture, I love to surround myself with their beauty.

In recent years, I've noticed that my love of roses is shared by many others. Collections of roses, real and in art form, abound. New artists strive to paint the perfect rose. Some are reminiscent of the famous rose artists from days gone by. If we're lucky enough to find an antique rose lithograph, it would be displayed in a place of honor above a fireplace mantle or antique brass bed. Vintage postcards with big, beautiful roses are framed and hung on walls or set on side tables.

If you pick up a romantic decorating magazine, you'll find rooms filled with the inspiration of roses. In a bedroom, it may be a rose needlepoint cushion, trimmed in the finest silk, adorning the seat of a boudoir chair. Or perhaps a beautifully stitched heirloom pillow, boasting lavish roses and lace, to adorn the bed. In a powder room, a porcelain bowl hand painted with gorgeous roses, might be filled with rose petal potpourri.

As I look around my home, I see I have included roses in the d├ęcor wherever possible. Vintage tablecloths with colorful roses fill my china cabinet. Mismatched china pieces decorated with softly faded roses sit on the shelf nearby. Linen pillowcases embroidered with tiny, perfect rosebuds are neatly folded in the linen closet. On my dresser, a pink porcelain rose is tucked into the corner of the vanity tray that once held my mother's prized perfume bottles. The memories of her that the tray brings back are as sweet as the rose itself.
Whatever memories roses hold for you, you'll find the perfect rose waiting to capture a piece of your heart at Make Mine Pink.
