Pink Saturdays and roses...doesn't get any better!




Hey Bloggie Friends,

I've missed you.  I'm happy to rejoin Pink Saturday this week with a few pictures of my porcelain rose collection.  I will try to add a couple more later, but this is a start.  Most of these beauties were made in England and the delicate nature of them appeals to me.  I love this top piece which is unmarked, but it reminds me of a sea urchin and since I love the ocean, it is extra special to me.  I hope you are all having a cozy January.  I've been a little down due to our personal life. Please lift up Mr. FL in prayer for his job search.  We need him to find one sooner rather than later.  I'm trying not to stress, but it is hard not to.  Perhaps a prayer or two for my peace of mind wouldn't hurt either.  I usually keep things kind of light on this blog, but you gals are such great positive spirits that I feel comfortable asking for your thoughts and prayers.  I know deep down that everything will be alright, but right now, it is hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  I'm going to keep on keeping on though because that's what we women do.  One foot in front of the other, doing what needs to be done, and getting on with it.  Breathe in, breathe out, repeat.  I think that may become my mantra in the coming days and weeks.  And I always know you sweet ladies are here, showing me how to do that or, at the very least, making me forget my troubles for a while as I get immersed in the beauty and light of your blogs.  Thank you for being here. 

Now enough of me "harshing your mellow" on a beautiful Saturday!  I'm joining the lovely Beverly over at How Sweet the Sound for her amazing Pink Saturday.  After you finish scrolling down to see my porcelain posies,pop on over and check it out.  You'll be SO glad you did!

Until next time,






One of my favorites nestled in a cornucopia looking vase

Tiny cake plate posy.  Only about 1 1/2 inches tall.

Bought this one on Our Cottage Garden...I'm not only a seller, I'm also a customer!

Bought the shoe to sell...like 4 years ago!  Guess it isn't happening!

Love the little shell
Just a little dose of pretty

Pin It!

  3. Hi I'm Terri, the top piece reminds me of a polka-dot swiss Easter dress I wore when I was about ten with silk organza pink roses. Thank you for the memories and I am praying for your son's total recovery. Blessings Terri

  4. Both pieces are beautiful, but the pink one is my favorite because it's so soft and delicate in appearance.

    I'm sorry to hear that your family has had so many personal issues, and I truly hope things ease up for you soon.

  5. Hi Judy,
    just discovered your blog and I'm so glad destiny (indeed it was some blog hopping) brought me here.
    love your blog: it is co cozy and inviting especially on this gloomy January day in rainy Italy.
    Your porcelain roses are absolutely awesome, but the light pink one is definitely my fave. I do too love roses, hence my blog name.
    Sorry to hear about the situation in your family.
    I have the same problem with my DH so I know exactly how you feel.
    I'll have you in my prayers and hope things will get better very very soon.
    have a nice weekend and if you find a wee bit of time, do stop by my blog. I'd love to show you around my little corner of world.

  11. G'morn, Judy ~ I share with you this wonderful piece ~
    ~~~~~
    STRONG PERSON

    A strong person knows how to keep their life in order. Even with tears in their eyes, they still manage to say "I'm ok" with a smile. God is good. Change is coming. God saw your sadness and said hard times are over.
    ~~~~~

    I lift you all in prayer that things come together quickly for you.

    I love your beautiful porcelain treasures, Judy.
    Porcelain is so delicate & fragile yet full of royal beauty.

    Have a happy PS weekend ~
    TTFN ~

  25. Happy Pink Saturday, dear one. We have missed you, and I am so glad you joined us today. So many are experiencing hard times, and I will surely keep you in my prayers.

    Your pieces are so pretty. I am going to be certain to show them to my mother. She has several pieces in the pattern of your first photo. I'll have to remember to take pictures and share them one day.
