I bought myself a present. . .and Happy Pink Saturday, dear friends~

Have you ever bought yourself a present? I recently did! I have always adored Christie Repasy's beautiful roses and so. . .

I purchased this gorgeous rose painting in a vintage tin frame from her. . .I am in love!!!

I love how it looks in my little cottage living room. In fact, I find an excuse to go into my bedroom so I can walk back out and see it hanging in my living room. Then, I just stand there and admire it.

Be still my beating heart. Is there something in your home that you just adore? I bet there is. Well, enough of my ramblings. I am participating in Pink Saturday. I haven't been able to participate on a weekly basis, but I do as much as I can. I love to visit all the pink posts each week and see what each of you have to share.

Please visit our kind hostess, Ms. Beverly, and all of the other pink folks here: Wishing you all the happiness in the world and sending love to you!

Vicki..I love it, too!!!!! It's sooo beautiful (do I sound excited?) I can see you walking in and out of the room to revisit the feeling of seeing it for the first time...COL...

Hi Vicki!
I love your rosy living room! The tin frame is special, too!

Shirley said...

Hi Vicki, I love your present to yourself. It is wonderful to buy something you want instead of having someone else to do it. I would just sit and admire the roses all day because I love roses. The metal frame really sits it off. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs Your Missouri Friend.

I can see why you are in love with this painting, and it fits your taste and your home perfectly.
Sometimes we treat ourselves to just the right gift.

I bought a handmade textile piece yesterday at the exhibition we went to. It won first place last year and was being sold by the lady who made it. Now I need to rearrange a space in my living room to make room for it. Sometimes I sit in different spots in my living room to see the view that folks see when they come to visit. :) Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Tammy
