The Roses are Blooming at So Shabby Pink

Hello all.

I can't believe it was 90 degrees here yesterday. Too much too soon, even for south Texas. It is much milder today though. Texas weather is so unpredictable.

It has been nice enough to get some new plants started for about a month now though. Our yard is shaded by trees so it is hard sometimes to find the sun for the kinds of plants I want to grow. I have settled for bush type tomatoes that can grow in big pots. This year I chose the Bush Goliath.


Already have 2 tomatoes!

This is the first year I have grown Petunias. I just love them! They are doing great in the shade!

I planted some Morning Glory seeds and these are ready to grow up on a trellis. I grew these a long time ago and they will grow like crazy all over the place! I can extend strings out from the pot for them to grow on or maybe go get some lattice from the hardware store. Can't wait until they start blooming!

I usually grow a little herbs here and there. A friend of mine has a Rosemany BUSH! It has grown so big in her garden and smells so good.

I forget what this plant is called - if you know, leave a comment!
The spots on the leaves resulted from hail during a thunderstorm!
Almost ready to bloom!
This is a perinneal. bogainvilla...

Begonia - all plants that love shade.
Of course, at So Shabby Pink, we have other types of blooming flowers.

There is a story to come about this bench...

Our newest color: Antique Blue and Cream

Butterfly Time and Scrapbook Frame at So Shabby Pink

Look what I found in the back of my work room shelf. This is one scrapbook frames I have sold in the past. I will put it back on the website soon at a considerable savings.

This is one my my newest yard long prints I have! It is painted by Maude Humphrey and it is called "Butterfly Time." I have one more of these in stock.

We have a nice variety of pretty things at So Shabby Pink. I want to expand our colors into some of our regular items that we have in the past, only offered in pink. I will have them to you soon.

We should be getting in a new supply of Romantic Country Magazine soon. We sold out of the first supply rather quickly. We at So Shabby Pink are honored to be able to carry such a beautiful magazine.

Email us at and we will hold a copy for you!

Thanks for coming by,
