~Pretty in Pink~

I wanted to share another beautiful bouquet my Mom gave me.  This time in all "pink" flowers.  Isn't it beautiful?  Look at her creativity.....taking a plain glass jar and adding some lace(an old cuff from a dress with buttons) and pink buttons at the bottom of the jar.  It gives it such a vintage feel.  

The pink roses and zinnias are some of my favorites.  My daughter Brenna wanted a photo with these beauties.  Pink is her favorite color and after her shower she was reading on the porch so I took them outside to sit next to my favorite birdcage.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.
