Despite an entire weekend at home, we're both still sick. We sat on the couch most of the day, drinking tea and watching movies. We made more soup and homemade French bread, and then we watched the Oscars this evening. I love Billy Crystal, and it was great to see Christopher Plummer win Best Supporting Actor. He's 82 and still looks amazing. I can't believe that was his first win.
Michelle Williams stole my heart fashion-wise -- she always looks timeless but different from everyone else.
It was also great to see the South was well-represented this year.
I chose to name my first blog "Painted Pink Roses" because pink roses have had a constant presence in my life since I was a little girl. This blog exists to share the beauty and love of home, family and daily life and to keep beautiful traditions alive. Painted Pink Roses is dedicated to my grandmother and great-grandmother, two glorious women who passed their love of beautiful things to me, my mother and my sister. And yes, roses are my favorite flowers, but I do not discriminate - I have all colors in my garden. I do think the pink ones smell the sweetest though. I hope you enjoy my blog!
In 2013, Painted Pink Roses moved to the Gerald & Joan Blog. To continue following our story, click here.
