Roses Of Inspiration Linkup #13

Hello lovelies,
and welcome to another Roses of Inspiration linkup.
I am so grateful to have you here and
I look forward to seeing what all of you have been up to.

Before we get to the party
I would like to announce the winner of my Birthday Giveaway.
I truly appreciate all of you that put your name in for the drawing
and I thoroughly enjoyed reading the birthday memories that were shared.

The blessed winner is. . .
Debby Ray 
from My Favorite Things
A favorite birthday memory of hers. . .
I guess my most memorable birthday surprise 
would be when my youngest son was in college 
about 500 miles from home decided to surprise me. 
He secretly made the trip home but parked his car away from the house. 
That evening, the doorbell rang and when I looked out, 
all I saw was a large black garbage bag. 
I very gingerly slipped out the door to see what was in the bag
 and guess who jumped out at me???!! 
He almost scared the daylights out of me to say the least 
but it was a birthday surpise I will never forget! 

And one more thing. . .
I am leaving this morning for a little getaway with my family
and won't be back until the end of the week.
Please know I will be around to visit you when I return :)
I am looking forward to a few days of sunshine and relaxation.


Let's begin with a few features from last week.
One again I was greatly inspired by the posts
that were shared during last weeks party.

than I would encourage to to check out the post.



. . . { Lace and Pearls Inspiration } . . .

shared several stunning Victorian-like pendants.



. . . { Beautiful Hair Inspiration } . . .

shared some loveliness with her victory rolls hairstyle.



If you are new to our party than here are the basics. . .


{ 1 }
You can link up anything that your heart desires. . .
crafting - recipes - encouragement
Scripture - devotionals - photography
healthy living - gardening - home living
sewing - crochet/knitting - fashion
beauty - tea time - home decor - etc

{ 2 }
You can linkup as many posts as you want
and they can be posts you have written today, last week, last month, or last year.

{ 3 }
There will be fun giveaways throughout the year.
I will simply add up the amount of people who participated in one of the link-ups,
write the numbers down on paper and draw the number of the winner.
So if you link-up more than one post you will have a greater chance of winning.
These giveaways will be random

so you never know which link-up I will choose for a giveaway.
