Pink Rose Beauties

As I look for spots of beauty in my days, these items have made me smile. One daughter gave me this lovely pink "rose" made from a conch shell and I must admit that I've never seen one like it! They brought it from Mexico.
 The twirl on the base was obviously cut off from the middle part. Very creative!
Looking down on it...

 ...with a close-up of the middle. What a Master Creator we have!
A view from the back of it.

Then a sister-in-law has been giving me a pink rose item or 2 almost every time I see her. What a generous and caring heart she has. Here are a few of those items.
Well OK, I put the shell rose in one of the items. Perfect, hey?

A lovely plate, a mug...wait, this is too pretty to be called a mug. Is it a porcelain coffee cup? Then there's the little candle holder. Love 'em!

Here are a couple of unusual items. On the left is a compact which belonged to my mother-in-law when she was young. A note inside says she was 17 which would mean that this is about 70 years old. Awesome. The other item is a ceramic "egg" made in Budapest, Hungary as you can see. I love little "pretties" like this, they make me smile for their beauty. Thank you, givers (and Giver) of beautiful things to me!
I've used this verse on other posts but it's so appropriate for this one, too:

"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest,
 whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely,
whatsoever things are of good report;
 if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things." 
(Philippians 4:8)  


  1. You have quite a collection of lovely pink roses, now I know where your blog title came from. The conch shell rose is amazing, I've not seen one like it either.
    As a teenage I pooled gift money and bought a Royal Albert Tea Set in Lavender Rose. I rarely use it but can see it every day, also a cornflower (blue on white) tea set which my mum used and was a favourite of mine.

  2. The pink rose conch shell is gorgeous and so unusual. What an amazing Creator we have!
