The name of this lovely rose is Old Paris. I can only speculate as why it was given this particular name........maybe because the vivid shade of pink is reminiscent of the wonderfully rich colors used on the vintage porcelain pieces, which are also called Old Paris.

This rose is a very prolific bloomer, so I'm constantly cutting little bouquets. I found this little vintage bottle at an antique store........I think Old Paris roses should feel right at home in a bottle that says Paris down the side, don't you agree ?

I plan to print gift tags from this photo of the Eiffel Tower, that I altered in Photoshop. I love the pink glow of the setting sun against the blue sky.

I had to include this photo of Molly that I took after one of her recitals. We looked around and there she was, white tutu and all, sitting in a bed of clover! The girl just can't pass up an opportunity to pick a bloom.

Many thanks to Beverly of How Sweet The Sound for hosting PINK SATURDAY. Be sure to visit her HERE for links to other participants.

Have a wonderful weekend,

yes, yes, the roses looks perfect in the tiny bottle with "paris" on it. It is a small one, yes? It can fit only two to three cuttings.

you have a bed of flowers? How adorable to see Molly. She looks like a flower fairy :-)

Happy Pink Saturday!

Cold, dark, misty in my neck of the woods. My perennials are hiding and I am wearing a sweatshirt. Coming here today made my day a little brighter. Thanks so much.

No doubt about it, your daughter is just lovely. Such a sweetie.

I'm a little late with my Pink Saturday visits because I had my grandsons for the weekend and couldn't tear myself away from them☺

♥Wishing you and yours a week full of happiness♥

Hello, again. We are home from our 3-week trip, which was delightful!

I have read all your posts which I missed while we travelled. I thoroughly enjoyed each of them.

I am SO glad you got the little pink quilted booties...they are precious. And, speaking of precious, that picture of Molly in the clover is an award-winner for sure! She is priceless!
