Pink Saturday - Hand Painted Roses

Beverly at How Sweet the Sound hosts Pink Saturday. Pause at her Place to see Plenty of other Pretty Pink items that Precious Pink Participating People are Presenting for your Pleasure.

A couple of years ago, I won this hand painted heart-shaped dish at a ladies Bible study class. I seldom win anything, but I think I made up for not winning much with this gem. It's sitting on my glass topped entry table by my front door. When my son comes over, he dumps his keys into it, saving my glass top from scratches. He's the only visitor who does this. 



A close-up shot of one of the blooms. I'm so impressed with talented people.



I moved it onto the dining room table so that you could see it without the glare.





Happy Pink Saturday!


See you for Blue Monday

I would love to know how to paint on glass. I have these little water glasses that are begging to be decorated. I guess I will have to go Google hunting for directions and a little painting talent wouldn't hurt.

Anyway after all that, the rose dish is really pretty, a treasure.

I just love that, I am especially in awe of her painting cause I know how hard it is to paint on glass using the one stroke method, she did a fantastic job.
Thanks for sharing.

jeanne said...

Hi Sally, Sunday morning and I am just getting to Pink Saturday. What a day I had yesterday. No time for anything. Your dish with the hand painted roses is gorgeous. It looks like reverse painting. The artist did a beautiful job on those roses. The best part is, you won it. Your son is sweet to put his keys in it to save the table.

We are leaving for church so I will be back for your Sunday post.

Havea a great Sunday...Jeanne

Elizabeth said...

This is definitely a great prize. In the second photo the flowers look like they are pressed in the glass. I may be crafty, but I"m no artist!

Cindy said...

That is gorgeous!

Claudia said...

Charli and me said...

Sally your dish is absolutely beautiful. I had to giggle because I don't have a entry way but I do have a table with a glass top that is next to the entry door and on that table is a crystal dish that we keep our keys in :>) Yet another thing we have in common :>)
