Zazzle is an online gift store that sells unique creations produced by a collection of artists. Some of the more popular items are vintage designs, which have a nostalgic, antique look.
When making a piece of vintage artwork, it’s only natural to include pink and red roses. These flowers symbolize a bygone era of Victorian formality, coupled with a more relaxed lifestyle that allowed you time to entertain guests in a sitting room.
An easy way to dress up any living space is to use throw pillows as accents. A wide range of vintage rose pillows are available on Zazzle. Space constraints don’t permit us to show them all. But here is a representation.

Some Rose Facts
Did you know that a rose is the official flower of the United States, and is part of the emblem of four states? Portland, Oregon is known as the City of Roses, because its temperate climate is ideal for growing these flowers. As you drive through the city, you see rose bushes everywhere, especially along the median strips on traffic islands. There is also an International Rose Test Garden where new hybrids are developed.
