Roses are pretty in pink

Now I must confess I am fake fake.  Fake fireplace ,fake flowers, fake chandy for looks only. I even have a fake guest unless you call the dogs guests as they love people food .lol  I did eat the meal goody
really sweet pink bird in nest.

votive candles on lace table runner
Long view of table place mats have square pastel colors and clear acrylic tableware cups and saucers with pink roses.  Love the vase with pink flowers.

see the miniature candle votives with pink flowers                     The next pictures are things that I have accomplished so far this year.The mirror was a fancy clock that would not keep good time so fancy mirror. The kitchen  leaked under 2 ft of snow.  Had to repaint and change border.  I made the shelf from part of an old piano sheet music stand. I painted back of hutch and decorated it for spring. The oak cupboard was a garage sale find plus a corner cabinet all wood.  Good deal. I got my new rug at TJMaxx all wool 5 by 7 129.00 dollars.  Love it. I am so happy with my life and feel fortunate that I am safe cozy and well fed lol.  when I think of Japanese people who are suffering.  We should all pray for them.  I can't amagine the grief and pain they are suffering.

I am sitting here having lunch by myself on my pretty mismatched rose dishes of chicken salad and strawberry yogurt contemplating over what I have accomplished so far this year. I have been feeling much better this year so want to do things while I still can. The biggy thing I have finished painting my large room which what I call the doll room. Blinged up several lampshades.  Actually painted ecru shade white added Blue checkered ruffle.Redo wall in breakfast room when 2 ft of snow caused leaking.Painted all white radiant heat covers plus all windows and door jambs and old cupboards in breakfast room plus many small recycling old odd pieces. Got new area rug in doll room. I still have many projects I would like to get so I can enjoy the nice weather and work garden and deck. I get very tired so rest between projects.I took out  old tile in breakfast room to put in new flooring.Whew did I really do all that? The dogs were no help lol                                                                                                                                                                                                                              I was at a loss on what to post then I thought I haven't had lunch why don't I pamper myself so I decided that my roses my daughter gave me for my birthday now wilted and gone would make me remember my 80 birthday.  I really didn't know what I had with pink roses so I shopped the house and this is what I came up with.
