Give Away Winner and Pink Inspirations

> Welcome. My garden gate is always open for you to come in, sit and relax with a cup of tea. Dr. Normal Vincent Peale wrote the Power of Positive Thinking and founded Guidepost Magazine. He once said "if you can change your thinking, you can change your world." Together last week with all of the positive and uplifting comments left by so many of you regarding the Design Gives Back "Miracle Makeover Blog party" for Colette . . . . we changed our world and raised $2,190.00 to go towards a future makeover project to change the world of another person. You can read more about the results on:



The WINNER of my Vintage Rose painting is: SHIRLEY C. of





Enjoy your cup of tea and I will share with you the inspiration behind my vintage rose painting.

Finding Inspiration . . . . . .

Old fashion white and pink roses

Here . . . .

I wanted the painting to have a vintage look and instead of painting the roses in the white vase I decided to use an old silver vase instead.



There . . . .



Everywhere . . . . .



I loved the look of the roses in the old silver dish and this was the final inspiration.


The winner of my "Vintage Rose" painting is Shirley C. Her blog, http://www.prayersformymom.blogspot.com/ was started by her daughter when she was diagnosed with tongue cancer to bring an awareness to bloggers of the seriousness of tongue cancer. I am happy to report that Shirley is doing great and is a very thankful cancer survivor. Please drop by to say hello and read her inspiration story.

Thank you for stopping by and for participating in the Miracle Makeover Blog party and for leaving comments to help raise $2,190.00. I love hearing from you and sincerely appreciate your visits, comments and those who follow my blog. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to see me paint something special. Next week we will paint a garden birdhouse due to the many requests I have received to paint a birdhouse.

Have a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Blessings, Erin
