 Today, I am showing you one of my treasures 
that I snagged up from one of the vendors at my  sale.

This huge white pitcher 
was filled with these gorgeous English roses
all for $15!!!
Can  you believe that?!
Sunday, instead of cleaning up,
 I headed outside to play...
here are just a few of the shots.

Beautiful! I love the antique look of your photos, with a hint of color.

Have a lovely week there in your home sweet home.

Such lovely shots you have shown us. I too love setting up and taking photos inside as well as out. It's so time consuming though. Thanks for sharing.

$15? Are you kidding me? Unbelievable AND beautiful! We are traveling with limited internet but I couldn't resist trying to get a comment through- LOVE those images- xo Diana

Such a treasure Rene! I love those roses! I so wanted to come to the sale, but I had gone to our reunion and then while there my brother in law had to go to the hospital where they found he had brain cancer. So I will be in Middleton with he and my sister a lot off and on for awhile. We don't know how long we have with him, so I would like to be there as much as I can. I know Dale will take good care of Landon and he has been very supportive.

I bet the sale was a wonderful time!!!
hugs from here...

I also love the quote. I just recently read that book.

looks like your sale was successful and fun! Pat

Adrienne said...

Gorgeous! I would have 'snapped up' that pitcher, too. Your photos are wonderful. Happy Fourth, my friend.

CeCe said...

No, I cannot believe you got that beautiful pitcher filled with the roses for $15.00.... I just bought a lovely one for $14.00, with no roses and about half the size of yours! I imagine, though, regardless of the deal or size we will both enjoy our treasures for many years!

Pat said...

The white pitcher, those beautiful roses, your gorgeous photographs - absolutely delicious!! You play all you want...pat
