A Shout Out Again to my Pennsylvania Friends!!!

Today the Pennsylvania House Education Committee had a hearing on The Safe at School Diabetes Bill (House Bill # 1113). This is much more progress then the bill had last year! The hearing will be broadcast on PCN tomorrow 4-30 at 3:50pm.

At this point we really need to contact the members of the Education Committee and ask for their support. As a mother of a Type 1 diabetic child, I can't begin to tell you how important this bill is. So please, write a letter, send an email, or call these Representatives.


Tea Time!

I've been adding a lot of new goodies to The Pink Rose Cottage including this beautiful teapot and matching pitcher.

Please stop by and see what's new!

I'm going back to my roots....

No! Not my hair! That would never happen! LOL! But I am going back to what started it all for me with online selling – Ebay! So I listed a few items this week and hope to continue to list a bit every week. Here’s a little sample. This sweet vintage beehive pincushion with millinery bumblebees. So cute! Please take a peek at the*cozy*cottage.

Happy Easter!!

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter!

I have my table set early and thought I’d share it with you. It’s one of my favorite vintage tablecloths. I have it in five colorways: pink, blue, yellow, chartreuse, and beige.

The dishes were a “have to have” find this summer at a garage sale. Now, I’ll admit I have as much of a problem with dishes and I do tablecloths. But my excuse is I need the different dishes to go with my tablecloths! Oh such a vicious cycle! LOL! Most of my dishes are just different colors of Fiestaware. So when I turned these pretty violet dishes over and saw they were Homer Laughlin, I figured it was fate and that sealed the deal! LOL!

This morning I picked up these cute cupcakes for the kids. Just way too adorable!

And on another note, I want to say THANK YOU to Michelle from Rose Petals and Blooms for my sweet “Rosie Fussie Tussie!” I won her from Make Mine Pink Shop Hop recently. I had to show you how wonderfully she is packaged with a big satin bow and a beautiful note. Once the Easter decorations are put away Rosie will have her own special place! Thank you Michelle!
