Pink roses and other flowers

I thought I will show you my collection of pink roses and flowers. Most of them are Capodimonte. I bought most of them when we were stationed in Germany.

Just as dresden figurines these flowers are so fragile that sometimes they will chipped when you handle them. Most of mine survive the travels in great shape, no so much the Dresdens.



                        
                               This one is one of my favorites, it looks almost like a real flower








                                                             Pretty, pretty



                                            
                                                  This rose bush its about 12 inches tall

 
Hope you all have a great Pink Saturday. Thanks to Ms Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for hosting the funnest party in blogland. Blessings, Marta.

Hello Marta, These are so pretty, I have quite a few pieces myself.... I especially like the long stem roses, they could be put just about anywhere.

Hope your day is filled with pinks*
