A Beautiful Floral Show!

I was supposed to go to a Spring Flower Show today, but unfortunately we had snow and I didn't want to drive 45 minutes in the mess to get there. Also, I didn't want to worry that it would be worse by the time I was finished looking at all the flowers, the vendors booths, and all that goes with it. So, I decided to make my own flower show, right here at home.........

First, here are some roses:

Some more roses:
A little birdie and some sparkly rocks:

More sparkly rocks and flowers:

Then we have the daisies:

More daisies and a rose:

And a roundup of all of the beauties........

A few more beauties: more daisies, a tulip, a palm leaf, and another rose.

This is my collection of old brooches, and enameled pins. I love the flowers and I have been fortunate to find so many. I have not spent much money on them, most of them I have found at yard sales or thrift stores. It's fun to pull them out and look at them. And then at times, I will take a few out and lay them on my dresser where I can see them and enjoy them. Sometimes, I will even wear one of them, they are so pretty. I hope you enjoyed my little show 'n tell, talk to you soon.
'Til next time, Love ya, Jean

Looks like you had your own beautiful flower show. It snowed a little here too. Just enough to be nasty.

I love your pins, I collect them too!

Thanks for dropping by my blog and do visit often!

What bright spring beauties you're showing here! You're a woman after my own heart! But my problem is, when I run into this stuff, I can't make up my mind which to choose, so usually end up buying none! I have been known to snap up cherry brooches when I see them, though! (You have a really nice, welcoming blog! I'll be back!) Joni
