Lovely Miniature Roses

Lovely Miniature roses

Some people love roses and some don’t…….I fall into the category of pure LOVE for these beautiful dainty flowers that come in all sorts of colors and sizes.

For the pass few years I’ve been collecting an assortment of miniature rose bushes…..

It all started with my son calling me up and asking if I would be interested in a homeless mini rose bush he found by his apartment dumpster…..someone had left it there in hopes of it being rescue…….there was only one little stem left on it……..well I told him to bring it over and I’ll see if I can keep it alive….

Well I’m proud to announce it made it and ended up being a breathtaking Salmon Pink!

In previous years I have tried my luck with these mini roses planted in the ground…..

Well…..they all died…..every single one of them…..

So I decided to give these beauties another try but this time in pots…….

5

One thing about planting them in pots…..If they look like they are not doing well in a spot….You can just move them until they are happy campers……

6

…..and I’m proud to announce they are all doing great!

I feed them once a month with Miracle Grow…..

7

and all 6 of them are blooming…….Yep, I have 6 mini roses now….

Most of them have been gifts…..

8

My Sweet Son gave me this mini rose last year for Mother’s Day……

It’s white with red streaks…..Isn’t it beautiful!  Eye Candy for sure…..I just love it…..and it looks very happy to be on the corner of my patio table……

Miniature Roses……try growing your own in some pots…..they will bring you  years of beauty to enjoy…  

Blessings…….

Shabby Chic Snowman

Remember yesterday I said I was going to stay inside, cook some chili for supper and decorate for spring….. because it was cold and had snowed.  Well guess what?  I did do some decorating for spring and I did cook the chili…… but I also ended up going outside and had to play in the snow for a little while…..It was my hubby’s idea. …..

I made this cute little snowman/woman……she is my Shabby Chic Snowman……I think she turned out really pretty……..

with all that pink……I love pink…..it’s my favorite color…….

I entered her in a local new station contest……called “The Snowman Challenge”…..

Not sure if she made the cut or not…….I did not get to watch the 10:00 news last night to see if she made it on T.V.

guess where I was……..yep……sound to sleep ……  🙂

Have a Blessed Day!!!!

Dressing up a purse

I know you must be wondering what is she talking about….Dressing up a Purse…..well let me explain.  This purse was… at one time…..when I bought it a while back,…. a plain Jane of a purse.  I have nothing against plain Jane purses….they have their own simple elegance about them…..but if you are one of those gals that like to make a statement…..and have a purse no one else will show up with…..at the next wedding, or formal party…..I’m talking one of a kind……tailored just for you……I have the answer for you……
