Rose Display

Our local libraries have people display their work,
collections and hobbies. I was asked to display some of my hand made flowers.
This is one that will be displayed. I could not choose between the two pictures, so am using both.
These flowers are made from coffee filters and hand painted.
Of course there is lots of pink!
I make them to give out at nursing homes, or sometimes to family.
I consider this a ministry the Lord has allowed me to do, and I thank Him for it
Pink Saturday:

Happy pink (and green) Saturday.
Have a great week end.


  1. Shirley, Your hand made roses are beautiful. I love how you've displayed them in the hand urn. I think it's a lovely way to share your art and do our Lord's work. Thank you for sharing it here. Happy Pink Saturday.

    1. Thank you.I love blogging and being able to see others work also.

  2. How pretty and clever, I would never have thought they were made from coffee filters. Through blogging I am constantly reminded of how many wonderful and creative people there are all over the world ... thank you for sharing your own creativity Shirley.
    HPS, have a lovely St. Pat's weekend.

    1. Thank you for the nice comment. I am amazed also at some of the great things i see in the blogging world. Love it!

  3. very beautiful!

  4. I am not sure what I should praise more ... the hand made roses or the display ... both done so perfectly. I think I will have to choose both. No option here. I also love the thought that goes behind them. Have a wonderful day.

  5. Hi Shirley, I can' believe those are coffee filter roses. The look so real! Your photos have really done them justice, they are lovely. Happy Pink Saturday. ~Marti

  6. Shirley, Your display is stunning. I have seen handmade roses from coffee filters stained with tea, but never painted and your roses are beautiful! They look soft on my monitor. I thought they were either high quality silk or real. Wonderful job. How blessed the Lord is when you use your talents to inspire and bless others. Since I LOVE libraries I am so happy you are displaying your gifts there. The combination of the soft and rustic urn, the cupped hand is so full of texture I am blown away by both of these and could not pick one over the other either! Congratulations on being asked to contribute. Big blessings my friend.

  7. Your handmade roses are so gorgeous, Shirley. You're so talented!

  8. Your roses are splendid, I would have never dreamed what they started with. What a beautiful gift for a nursing home resident. Happy Pink Sat.

  9. Gorgeous! Visiting late for Pink Saturday.

    Green Goodies is my entry. Please come by when you get a chance. Have a great week ahead.

  10. Your roses are absolutely beautiful. I have a little statue, and it is God's hand. I will cherish it forever.
