December 19, 2008 Pink Rose Dreams

If you’re affected like I am by the lack of daylight, then you can get pretty gloomy as we wind down to the shortest day of the year. And today again we have snow, sleet, freezing rain. First PrizeSo it’s now that I start to dream of spring, and envision the pink roses that will grow in my garden and abound in the offerings on our website and eBay store.

Not that we don’t offer plenty of items with pink roses year round – as I check right now, on eBay we have a pink rose blanket, barkcloth with pink roses, pink roses in petit point, pink rose crochet doily, a duvet cover with pink rose bouquets and even a little girl’s vintage dress or nightie with little pink rosettes in the crochet yoke.

Pink roses abound on the website as well; there are lot of pink roses on hankies, and both quilting and upholstery fabrics with pink roses. Of course, there are tablecloths, towels and napkins, aprons, too! Add to those a few sets of pillowcases and the other odd item or two, it’s obvious that pink roses are in anything but short supply.

But I’ll start now, in these shortened days and lengthened nights, to pull myself toward spring by forcing the blooms: I’ll add a disproportionate number of pink roses and other spring flowers long before spring arrives, to hurry it along a bit. Ive begun with a tablecloth called Tea Rose by Setting Pretty, one of the brands by the makers of famous Wilendur tablecloths.

And I’ll be adding these to the Drapery and Upholstery pages:
pink rose chintz
pink rose drapes

So, I know I’m rushing the season, but Happy Spring, everyone!!
