Ooohh just Love a pretty bouquet of pink roses!

So dainty and delicate and perfect.
Little paper thin petals in rich gorgeous pink...
& their intoxicating scent...

Love roses.

This perfect pink mixed with the dark green leaves is divine.
I picked up a few bunches of them at the grocery store- 3 for $12
and brought them home for a tablescape I am working on
and they found their way to a little old garden chair.

I love the simple beauty of the roses by themselves
and especially love them on this old weathered folding chair I have.
I bought a pair of these little old chairs at a flea market several years ago.
I think they were $5 and they are wobbly, a bit warped and so not perfect...
but I loved them instantly.

They have initials carved in the backs
and shabby old charm.
I am in love with the mix of the rustic faded chair and
the pop of pink in the roses.
You will be seeing more of these pretties around my posts before
they are dried for sure! ;)

Oh yeah,
how about that giveaway for Patina Style?
Well... 370 entries later... we have a winner.
I used to pick a number...
