Vintage images and beautiful roses are two things (of many) that I love. Today I’ll combine the two and share with you a few pictures which will hopefully brighten your Pinks Saturday and Valentine’s Day.

Welcome to Pink Saturday!

How sweet are these …

Roses speak love the whole world through …

Now, I usually don’t like to bombard you with lots of photos but seeing we’re combining Valentine’s Day with Pink Saturday
I thought I’d share some of my rose photos in which I have attempted to be a little creative with. I don’t have any fancy software so I’m limited with what I can do….

Fine Art?… an acrylic painting perhaps.

…. a canvas finsih.

…. sandstone or leather texture?

…. leather or sandstone finish? Whichever it is I like it.

… Hmmm, I’m not sure about this grainy finish – maybe on another photo perhaps?

…. just a bit of fun!

… and finally, another vintage picture to wish you all a

A Happy Valentine’s Day



… And now for our weekly challenge here are a couple of participants I’d like to introduce you to – Do pop in and say ‘Hi’ –

  15. So sorry that I missed you yesterday. It seemed like the day just ran away from me! But, with this being ?Valentine’s Day? what better time for me to stop by to see your Pink Saturday goodies.

    It’s been a long and dark winter up here near Canada so filling myself up with pink is my way on the weekend of chasing away the blues – not that blue isn’t a nice color, too?

    I ? coming here. All the pink and all the girlie stuff just floods my brain and makes me want to do a happy dance right where I sit!

    Thanks so much for sharing. After all, isn’t sharing one of life’s greatest pleasures?

    ?Happy Valentine’s Day?
