A Rose is a rose........

I found this rose ornament after Christmas when we were visiting our new special friends Rose and Tom in SC. She doesn't know it but I bought it as a memento of meeting my blog friend - Rose! Believe me, she is as beautiful as the rose flower! And her husband is a such a fine man.

For Valentine's Day decoration I hung the rose ornament from our crystal chandelier.

If you look closely you can see our collection of Swarovski ornaments also hanging from the chandelier, they have blue ribbons on them. A family member gives us one of these crystal ornaments each Christmas, I think we have eight of them now.

I have left my Valentine's Day decorations up because I'm hosting my Faith Sharing Group meeting tomorrow morning, and my Creative Memories workshop tomorrow night and I want them to see the decorations before they are down. Of course the rose ornament could stay up indefinitely, can't it, since it can adapt to any season!

The rose ornament is gorgeous and so is your chandelier! That's a beautiful way to remember Rose and your visit. My grandmother's name was Rose!

To hang ornaments (of all sorts) on a chandelier is such a fun idea..., seasonal or permanent. And if it has special meaning, the better!
