For years, a certain pink rose in my garden, “First Prize”, had been my favorite among all roses. This is the rose I’ve used in all my eBay listings for years, and featured on the tablecloth below when I submitted what turned out to be the winning entry in the September 2003 contest of the Vintage Tablecloth Lovers’ Club. One of our friends from the club, Holly, has a blog, The Pink Rose Cottage, that we link to here.
While last week we featured red roses on Feedsack Friday, this week we’re featuring the even more popular pink rose. Though pink roses may be more popular today than back in the days of feedsacks, thanks to shabby decorating trends, there were still plenty of them in the 1940’s and 50’s. They come in all sizes and in any number of arrangements, on various colored backgrounds. Large:
And all sizes in between:
As you can tell, we could go on and on with pink roses, but we’ll have to limit ourselves. But there isn’t one of these sacks that isn’t pretty, so we just had to show a few more:
Amd a few more,
And so on:
Many of these, along with pink rose fabrics, pink rose towels and tablecloths, pink rose hankies, and more are available now on our website: Sharon’s Antiques: Vintage Fabrics – www.rickrack.com
