The glowing Rose

When I walked into the Kitchen this afternoon I was blinded by
this Rose he brought in from the garden. I have never seen
a rose that Glows! It's incredible. Smells great too!

And, the Double-delight next to it isn't bad either!

Have you ever Smelled a double-delight? If you have, you
know what I'm talking about. If you haven't, go Find one and
smell it. I guarantee you will Never want to live without them

Ah! Looks like he found a Spot for it... I meant to show this to you Last weekend
but I forgot. It's a find from Payne's English stained glass in Pittsboro. Just a random
piece out of an Estate in England's Nottinghill, said Kurt Payne. I knew the moment I saw
it that it was coming home with me. It's a needlepoint done over 100 years ago, and I love it. I
wonder if the woman who crafted it could have ever Imagined it would end up being enjoyed here
one hundred years later. Kurt said some lady that visited the shop a few months ago spotted it and
couldn't stop going on and on about the type of Material that was used on it or the special colors. I'm
by no means an Expert on needlepoint so I have no idea what that might mean. All I know is that I feel
fortunate to have it. The back of the Frame gives away its age - Fortunately, someone cared enough
to keep the two intact and away from direct Sunlight as to not allow it to fade. It was marked at
$100, but since we took home Five pieces of his English stained glass, Kurt agreed to part
with it for only $75. I think it was a Fabulously fair trade! What do you think?

I'm just a sucker for a Knight and his fair Maiden!
Now, if I could only get, you-know-who to let me
replace that Ugly little lamp he picked out. I have a
feeling it might soon accidentally Topple off the table...
