“Ashes of Roses”

Description from OK Jacki: Inspired by the forbidden love from "The Thornbirds." I can envision Meggie descending the stairs in her "Ashes of Roses" color evening gown & knockin'em dead. (She needed a great necklace, don't you think?)

    I love this pretty pink pick, Jacki! Wasn’t ashes of roses the color of Meggie’s dress in the Thorn Birds?

    I never saw the movie, but I agree with Ravin that the book was phenomenal and so is this pick. I would like to the necklace if it to be.

    Enjoyed both the book and the movie — thought of Meggie and her dress as soon as I saw your title! With just the right jewelry, Father Ralph could have been hers forever!!! ;) Great pick to illustrate her dress!

    Congrats on your first pick and welcome to our addictive world! :D

    I finally got beads, have not had time to stay home when it is day light light so I can see colors accurately and bead flaws. So I spend my extra time it seems on Lima Beads site. 3:35 am see what I mean. I think this is my sleeping time. ROTFLOL
    Pretty Beadies.
