~Have A Rosy Weekend~

I love roses! I picked these lovelies earlier this week and they just make me happy each time I walk by them. The vase was my grandma's and I remember her using it for roses and sweet peas too. Isn't that a neat postcard? It's post marked Aug 26~7pm~ 1910 ~NEBR. Can you imagine it's over ninety years old. It has the sweetest message from Martha to her mother and you should see her penmanship, it is so pretty. Across the bottom is a lovely sentiment that reads............ To Wish You All That You Could Wish... and that is my wish for you too. Have a rosy weekend .....Hugs, Linda

LOL...I may get a rose like that around Mother's Day if I am lucky. Yours are beautiful and so is that post card and I like that you use the old flower frog to display it. I do that too with my photos. You have a great weekend too Linda. ~ Lynn

Hi Linda,
What a lovely post. It is so neat, they even posted the card with the time - how neat. And that you have the vase and remember what your grandmother loved to keep in it is wonderful. I love roses myself too, sweetpeas - well all kinds of flowers!
Happy weekend,

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I have enjoyed visiting you here. I cannot believe you have been married for 45 years (I found you in the picture of your high school friends). You are so lovely and young!!! I guess you married when you were about 5 years old.

Have a great weekend. Enjoy that sunny California weather. We are experiencing some mighty storms right now in central Florida.

Enjoy!

Your lovely yellow roses match the postcard. I love to use treasures that were handed down to me from my grandparents. Your vase is a treasure that makes you smile when you use it...what a wonderful feeling.
