Soft & Romantic

                                                              Happy Weekend!
                            A beautiful bouquet of pink roses has inspired some soft and romantic beauty.

                                                   Pretty linens

   I was busy most of the day planting my new bulbs-I didn't stop to add them up but I am pretty sure I have planted close to 1000. The blow out sale at Vesey's is still on and all bags of bulbs are $2.Anyway,I am at the point of not wanting to see another bulb!!!

I am joining The Rose Garden in Malevik for Show Off Saturday and How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.

 Hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend !

I love those linens with the flowers stitched on them! My mother is gonna love seeing those, too. She's started collecting things like that, especially the old handmade pillow cases. Pretty things like that make her happy.

Stunning photos, Carolyn!! I love pink roses that have slight edges of light green like this. I can understand why you don't want to see another bulb ... but now I'm anxious to see them in bloom this spring!

Susan said...

Oh my. Loved seeing the delicate from nature.

Carolyn, can't wait to see all those bulbs in blossom next spring and summer! It will be amazing, like you! Susan

You will be thrilled in the spring when all of those bulbs come up. Can't wait to see the pictures then. You do not have any deer? We are overrun with them on eastern Long Island and I am afraid they like most bulbs. Exceptions are daffodils and allium.
Your pictures and dishes and fabrics and creativity in arranging all items and how they are photographed is always an art and a joy to behold.

Every single picture is absolutely breathtaking!

Janneke said...

So beautiful all those soft colours!
And planting almost 1000 bulbs, I have planted a lot of them and buy every week more but not so many. I understand you cannot see another bulb.

Darling Carolyn I absolutely adore this shade of pale pink! You did a nice job planting in your garden! My garden instead is full of enormous holes and scaffolding...
But this spring...palms and roses!

What beautiful photos! From one Carolyn to another - Happy Pink Saturday!

WendyBee said...

Oh, Carolyn! Your pictures never fail to delight! The lovely chemise is perfection with the intricate lace and that lovely pale peachy-pink color that enhances everybody who might wear it. I loooove that color - it knows no trend, no season, timeless and always perfect. Thanks.

Carolyn Your pics are lovely. I have to pin a few. I can't wait to see you pics in the spring. I must say I'm a little envious of your energy. If I planted 1000 bulbs, I'd be pushing up daisies! Oh well thx for sharing.
