If You were Me.........

Happy Pink Saturday !!!

Today along with pictures, I have a question. On our last thrifting outing I found these awesome, beautiful old silk roses.

And here is my question, If you were me, would you........................

Use these pretty roses on these old satin hangers ?

Use them to embellish Hat stands like these I did last year ?

Put them on old boxes ?

Put them on old baskets ?

How would You use these Roses if You were Me ?

Happy Pink Saturday !! Please go visit Miss Beverly, our Sweet Hostess, and all of the other pink posters :) My Pink Buddy for the week is : Sheri from Country Wings in Phoenix, Tell her I said Hi ! :)

Hugs,

Rhea

Uuuuh, did you forget the photos, sweetpea???? I don't see any. I'd think on it a long time before I did anything with them. That's for certain.

Happy Pink Saturday Sweetie...
Ooh I have to tell you it would be very hard to decide about these roses, because every single one of them look beautiful on every single one of your decorations.

But, OMG I have to tell you I adore the roses on the box the best. It grabs at my heart. It just sings to me. Thank you so much for sharing the beauty that your hands touch. They so touch my very soul.

Thank you so much for enjoying my blog. I was so surprised to see my name on your beautiful blog sweetie. That is such an honor to be praised by you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Have a beautiful Saturday filled with happiness and sunshine. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

The hangers are so pretty and I would use the hangers but the roses would maybe get squished (especially in my closet!) I found an old velvet hat stand yesterday thrifting and one of those roses would look look fabulous on it!!

nancy huggins said...

Well..I don't know exactly how many of the Roses you have but I would maybe do just a few on the hangers and display whatever is hung on them so they wouldn't get smooshed (if I had them ) but I would for sure put most of them on the boxes...what a beautiful gift box or on top of a dresser they would be :)

What a dilemna! I think all ideas are wonderful. Such gorgeous roses.

Scrap for Joy said...

Yes, yes, yes and yes! Any and all of your ideas are beautiful! Your blog is always an inspiration and I love to come over and just soak it all in! Your last post about the cake plates wowed me...I've just started gathering plates and candle sticks to make some of those stands. Yours are remarkable...and the china collages...who would have thought of doing that! Thank you for always sharing your creativity!

I don't think I could do anything with them but hoard them, but all your ideas are beautiful. Go for it. I am partial to the box idea.

I love them all - they are all so beautiful I think I would just place them in a low bowl on a table so I could lovingly gaze at their beauty many times daily! Happy Pink Saturday!

Linda said...

They are all beautiful! But something about the hat stand catches my eye!

Say It With Roses said...

Happy Pink Saturday....Well, I am not sure I could part with them for a bit.....they look perfect on everything, but that glove box really took my eye!

Good Morning and Happy Pink Saturday. Baskets. Baskets. I love baskets - so I might be partial to them -- however, I sure like all of your other ideas! Wonderful pastels and those flowers are beautiful ... just as they are - maybe just plopped loosely ... in a basket ... :)
I enjoyed reading your profile - great (heart) ministries you and your husband have! THanks, Jenn

OH RHEA, I THOUGHT THE ROSES WERE REAL AT FIRST. WHAT A PERFECT FIND. I THINK YOU ALREADY FIGURED IT ALL OUT. THEY LOOK PERFECT ON ANYTHING THEY TOUCH. HAPPY PINK SATURDAY TO YOU, CHAR

Cottage Rose said...

OH wow Rhea; those are so pretty,,,, hmmmmmm if it were me,,, well first of all I don't think I would have thought of that many ways to use them....lol,,,you should pick at least two of the ideas the then use them both... that way you can at least have a coupe of different items made... with them.... either way let us know what you did do with them.... I can't wait....

You have the "touch" so it doesn't really matter what you bless with those fabulous roses. Everything you do is simply mesmerizing. I love the boxes maybe the most, but all of the ideas are brilliant. Hugs...

Linda said...

I'm into boxes now, so I would put them on old boxes. They make such beautiful storage containers.

Vintage Linen Treasures said...

Sandy said...

It is such a gloomy, dreary day here. I decided to take a little "vacation" and search the web. Your wonderful blog helped chase away the blahs.

Lori said...

there is my gorgeous egg box:) one of my favorite things...i love all of the ways you use flowers to embellish your pretty creations Rhea!!!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh goodness I couldn't choose. I have a little crafting attention deficit disorder. So, I say do a little on multiple projects. Beautiful!!!

fitty's pinky rose cottage said...

oh Rhea, if have those kind of silk pretty flowers.. I put everywhere.. especially on things I that I love most and would like to see them everyday.. and anywhere you put the flowers, they turn out beautiful! you have a touch of that!

{Bellamere Cottage} said...

Well, the TRUTH is...I'd put them in a box and SAVE them. Isn't that so stinking sad? I have tons of wonderful things tucked away for "someday"....

Your roses are simply delish...and would look great no matter what you decide to do with them....you could even send them to me and I could do a great job SAVING them. :-)

Warm blessings,
Spencer
