For the Love of Roses...

The rose bushes in our garden are just starting to bud and although I know it will be some time before we see any of their splendid blooms, I am giddy with anticipation!  In the meantime I thought I would share with you more of the roses blooming here inside our home...on teacups, plates, in books etc.  I've set up a rose themed vignette on our dining room buffet just for you!  Enjoy!

"Language of Roses" by Stelvio Coggiatti.  I love this book.  It's much too pretty to have tucked away on a shelf!  If I remember right, I paid $1 for it at a yard sale a few years ago!  This rose is my favorite.  It's called Eden.

Royal Albert's "Lady Carlyle."

This teacup came from my husband's grandmother's collection and it is my very favorite.  The back stamp reads: "To commemorate the birth of Princess Margaret Rose 1939." 

My prized $2 yard sale teapot.  I know I've shared it before but when I opened my Victoria book "At Home With Roses" today and saw the same "Winton Julia Chintz" pattern, I decided I needed to share again.

Okay, so these aren't roses, but are they not the prettiest carnations you've ever seen?  My mom brought me a bunch for Valentine's Day and I just had to share them with you!

Are you ready for the weekend?  I know I am!  I have sooo many projects to work on...housework, organizing, crafting, pricing things for the shop...  I should really make myself a list!  Thank you so much for stopping by to take a stroll through my little bone china rose garden!  I do hope you enjoyed your visit! 

Have a wonderful weekend!
Best Wishes and Blessings,
