Rose Inspirational Plate

Welcome to another pink Saturday hosted by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound.

Today I made my routine trip to the thrift stores after grocery shopping. At Goodwill I found this wonderful gold rimmed plate with pink roses . It was put out by Gibson Greeting Cards Inc. in the year 1973. On the front is an inspirational poem by the beloved American poet Helen Steiner Rice. Are your ready for the price----eighty cents..... yes .... 80 cents.

This wedding gift wrap I have had tucked away in a drawer and came across it while cleaning out clutter. It was done by American greetings.. As you can see it has not been used and it cost 25 cents at the time ..

I love the lacy white bells and the pink bell flowers. So dainty is this wrap
Hope all is having a great pink weekend and for those out east in all that snow I pray you are safe and warm.
