Crushing on Roses!

Our backyard garden ~ Spring 2014 ~ my signature…
I love roses!
There is no doubt about it that
I am head-over-heels
pretty much anything
with roses on it!

For a Christmas present last year from our Victorian Tea Society, we received this lovely handkerchief and greeting card! Each year, Marlene, our board president, and the board members painstakingly choose a gift that all members will love.

Souvenir de la Malmaison and Mary roses
a cute metal rose (lovely, faded 40’s green!)
bought at
The Vintage Marketplace
sale in Fallbrook/Rainbow, CA
a lovely teacup and saucer with a napkin rose curled within ~ my son found on the internet and sent to me.
I will happily give credit to whomever created this, when you see this!

I love silk roses paired 
with lace…
I love roses scattered over
ethereal fabrics…
And, if I could have afforded this mirror
It would now be 
the mirror
above my French desk/vanity
in my bedroom…
Did I mention that even Yoda loves roses?…
lovely Redouté print

“Je t’aime Roza…je serais là pour toi. Je ne laisserais jamais rien t’arriver.
Et je ne laisserais jamais rien t’arriver non plus. Je t’aime.”

The Soul of the Rose ~ painting by John William Waterhouse

I have this painting in a giclee print…

It is a favorite!
Actually, I bought it at a cute shop in Old Fallbrook, California
back about 10 years ago
for my birthday…

Funny how roses
keep finding me…
