Rose's House

Did you ever walk into someone else's house and just feel at home and love it ? Well, the other day, Rose from church had some blackberrys she had picked that she was giving to me. Yummmmm...didn't take me long to drive to her house.I walked in....and could not believe what I saw...a PINK KITCHEN....I was so excited !!!! Her house is beautiful and holds a lifetime of memories. She showed me many of the quilts she made and also many other things she made . We had a cup of coffee together in her beautiful china with homemade cookies served on a china sandwhich plate. I felt like I was in a Grace Livingston Hill book. I so enjoyed this afternoon surprise. It was a blessing getting to know her better. Rose and her husband go to my church. They are wonderful Christians. Did I mention she is a tad bit over 80. Oh, is this woman an example to me of what a Christian Woman is.She is industrious, she shows hospitality, cherishes her husband and was a example to me.I hope to spend some more sweet time with Rose and learn more things about being a Godly wife, a better homemaker etc.....none of us have ever ARRIVED, especially me. As a woman being in my 50's I want to always be teachable. Isn't this the way it is supposed to be?
Hope you enjoyed the pictures.

Please tell your dear Titus 2 friend Rose that I think her house is just gorgeous!

How wonderful that you know her through church! I laughed out loud at the comment that you felt like you were in a Grace Livingston Hill book! I have most of her books and I'm reading one right now. I love GLH books!

Anyway, thanks for sharing this. I'd love to find an older woman to mentor me but I"m 42 now so I might not get that! ;) Still, I feel as though I have just started in my home life.


Ginny said...

Wow! I've never seen, or even imagined, a pink and white kitchen. It's so pretty and feminine! I'd love to see the rest of the house, and to meet the wonderful woman who lives there.

Sounds like you had a wonderful afternoon with a very special lady!

I've never seen a pink kitchen before but it does look cozy :o)


Mishel said...

Wow! It looks like something from a magazine. And what a blessing to have such a neat friend!

Deborah said...

Amen Deby! We can be learning until the day our Lord takes us home....if we're willing!
I love all the collectibles...reminds me of my mom & dad...but I sure wouldn't want to do the dusting.
I know you love pink...no wonder you felt so at home!
Have a nice day!

Pen of Jen said...

What a lovely home. How wonderful that you were able to visit and be uplifted. I love the example she set and that you are sharing!!

How sweet to fellowship with an aged woman of Godly character and warm hospitality that makes you want more of her fellowship! That's how it should be..

Gleaning from our elder women of Faith.

AMEN..Deb...no matter our age..we should be teachable! Those who have gone before us...have experienced things that can teach us to walk more faithful, more trusting.

Enjoyed the tour of Roses..lovely place.


That Good Part said...

A rosey home for your sweet Rose!

I once had a Church friend named Rose, only she was younger than me. She too reminded me of the young ladies depicted in GLH books!

Dear Deby,

What blessing this must have been to you! I was so encouraged just reading about your lovely visit with this special lady. I, too, feel I have so much to learn! I hope you have many more opportunities to spend time with her!

Thank you for sharing ~ it is an inspiration for me as that is the type of woman I want to be!

Have a lovely day,


Kristi said...

LOVE the pink kitchen!! Just love it. Your friend sounds like someone I would like to meet.


Donna said...

How fun for you to have this new friend. Her house is lovely...a lifetime of memories on display!

BittersweetPunkin said...

LOVE it! Great pics!

Ugh..I know..it's too hot for me too...I've been kinda cranky this week! LOL

I am truly blessed said...

Oooh....You know me. I love the pink. I bet she is a very sweet lady. Lovely house

Mrs. Renfro said...

I wouldn't have thought that I would like a "pink" kitchen but WOW, it's adorable. Her home should be on the cover of The Home Companion magazine :)
I am so glad that God allowed you to share some time with this sweet lady, Rose.
Have a blessed day.

Sharon said...

I feel like I've been away for such a long time!

Tell Rose that her house is SO lovely! Also, your header is gorgeous!!!! :)

Hope Della is all better and pray you are feeling better, too.

Jodi said...

Rainbow Cottage?? Yes? No? Okay - maybe it doesn't fit the story line, but the kitchen is so delightfully colorful and feminine, it just brought that title to mind. I've never thought to make my kitchen pink, but since it's the place I spend most of my time it makes perfect sense!

It sounds like you spent some precious time with a lovely friend. And yes, may it be so that I am always pliable to my Lord's touch because He is always shaping us to be more like Him.

What a wonderful post, Deby. You made me think and smile! :o)

gracy said...

I love this kitchen! It's so sweet! :) Thank you so much for your comment on my mom's (and my) blog! We love the dishes, too.

What a wonderful example this woman is, both in hospitality & in love! Thank you for sharing her story.

I pray the the Lord rains His blessings upon you today--


Sharon said...

Oh, I wish I knew Rose! Her home is delightful! I could sit in there and have coffee with her and stay forever! What a cute pink kitchen! How neat to have a friend like her!

Hugs, Sharon

Tori said...

Very pretty house, but I would hate to dust it! :0) Lovely, great place to drink tea and eat crumpets.
She sounds like a neat gal!

Joy said...

What a cute kitchen. Never thought I would like pink cabinets but they are adorable and all her collectibles just fit in so great.

Rose has own little fan club here in the comment section...lol.

See Rose's house is foo foo girly, but it's not gawdy or tacky or overboard, it's just, well, it's a sweet little haven for her and her beloved. :-)

I am glad you have become friends with this Titus 2 inspiration. May you both get to know each other very well!

God Bless You!
