Good  afternoon; I hope you all are having a great week so far. The weather here is so gorgeous warm and sunny,,, I hope you are enjoying the same where you are. Now I want to share with you my Beautiful Red Rose Pin, I won in a give a way…. I received it in the mail yesterday,,, I was so excited when I saw the sweet package addressed to little ol’ me.,  from Lorena,, from Rose Chick Friends…. she does the most amazing Rose’s ,, and she makes them by hand… you should stop by her blog and see all the gorgeous Flowers she makes… I thank you so much Lorena for drawing my name… I will show you now my Red Rose..

Red Rose 001 

Look how pretty it is,,, it looks like velvet… the red is just a gorgeous deep one…. love each petal how Lorena shaped each one.. so lovely..

Red Rose 003

Red Rose 004

Don’t ya just love it,,,,,,,,,, I can’t wait to ware it it is a good size too,, should have put something next to it to give you an idea of the size…  I have some really great shirts and a scarf to ware it with…… and I love pins,,, all kinds….. I have a ton of them… (not kidding)hehe   Thank you Lorena for my gorgeous Red Rose…..

  Now as for my unpacking and finding new homes for my pretties------------------ well that is another story,, it is going to take me awhile to find the right place for them…. I don’t hurry when I am redoing a room or in this case moving,,,, to hang up things or place them on tables or shelves… It takes me forever it seems,, to find where to put them,,,,,, am I alone in this or is there someone out there like me……. I will show you some of my mess I have right now…..

Red Rose 005

Hmmmmmm someday we will be able to use this table for what it is meant for,,, eating.

Red Rose 006

Don’t you just love my Pink bubble wrap…….. this box holds my Tea cups and saucers, I can’t wait to get them all out and look at them…… I have missed them…. silly I know but I did..

Red Rose 009

Gee it looks like we are just moving in,, instead of being here for almost a year……lol  Now I do have a place to up my peg shelf there on the floor,, it is going on a wall in our bed room…. and the wall shelf setting next to it,,, is going up above the dinning table it will hold my Tea cups….. but all the rest is still waiting for a home…..(sigh)

Red Rose 008

Our heavy and large mantle was not fun bringing up 4 flights of stairs,, but we did it… I love where it sits.. I plan on painting the inside black and do a mosaic on the surround instead of the faux marbling… which was there when we bought it…

Red Rose 007

I am thinking of painting it a creamy white, not sure yet,,,,, what would you do------ paint it or leave it alone?????    I think the painting is too high will have to lower it….  

  Well that is what I have been up too. I will do a post on the Easter with the family this week too,,,,, and then the night out with the girls from school….. 

I hope you enjoyed my post and photos….. I will be making my rounds to visit you all later….. I have been slow in doing that,,,, so sorry  I will get to you I promise.. 

As always I thank you for taking the time to stop by my humble blog and for you sweet comments,,, is enjoy reading….. So until next time; God Bless;

Your rose pin is really lovely, and all done by hand. Your friend is very talented indeed!
I too never just buy to fill a space. I wait until the right piece comes along.
Happy Decorating!

Beautiful red rose! I really like the faux fireplace/mantle. I would leave it as is with antique decor, but paint it heirloom white for a French or Shabby Chic decor, not sure which you want. I'm opposite you with decorating, I can't wait to get things decorating, even if I do it wrong, I have to do it right away!
