Roses are among the most exquisite flowers. Pink is a color that lifts up the spirit.
Put roses and pink together and, well, the combination is a winner.
It's really true that I love rose-covered anything. An object covered with roses perks me up and makes me smile.
One afternoon I was searching a thrift store's shelves, looking for the "pearl" among the tarnished silverware and sad-looking throwaways. All thrift store shoppers know that some days it's possible to find almost nothing one would want and other days, well, there are gems in every direction.
About to give up, I saw the plate laying on a shelf. Picking it up, it made me sigh a little sigh relief for I had found the "pearl" for the day----a perfect pink rose-covered plate. A couple of apricot-colored roses had been painted among the pinkies, making a most appealing combination.
This $2.99 treasure was a true keeper. Once home, washed with dish soap and warm water, and dried, I placed the plate in a gold-painted holder between brass candlesticks rimmed with faux pink flowers. The completed look definitely brightened up the dining room table.
DO YOU LOOK FOR ROSE-COVERED TREASURES?
