ROSES come in all forms!!

I particularly love ribbon work roses, I find it difficult to get hold of the vintage variety so I have decided to learn the craft. This skirt is so inspirational with all the lovely big colourful roses. I think I will start big. Millinery Roses - I have finally been able to get hold of loads of velvet roses at a reasonable price.
This beauty arrived from a favourite web store - http://onehundredwishes.com/
Pure eye candy for the eyes and the mouth - thank you :)
Paper roses - thank you Lidy of http://frenchgardenhouse.com/
the little book inside this beautifully wrapped package was gorgeous but equally beautiful is the Roses Birthday card - I bet you didn't know it was my birthday - but how apt:) thank you - x

and then DRUM ROLL !!!
COR!! LOOK AT THESE ~ just got these delivered~ no note?
taking a closer look there is one white rose ~ I know who it is:) XXXX
It used to get the flower shop talking but they know who it is now.

Sweet hubby is known as the roses man who always leaves his message of 1 white rose:)
Only thing is the sweet delivery man ( who looks like Santa Claus) said we know your secret now giving me a wink. Wondering if he was meaning the signature white rose I smiled but Hubby bought as many pink roses as my age. gulp ..... how nice dear:)

Happy Birthday to all you lovely girls celebrating this month - you know who you are :)

Happy Birthday to You!!! the bouquet from your obviously sweet hubby is just gorgeous!!! i saw the comment you left at charming designs and i wanted to help you with your link "issue" :) i usually add my links last when i am posting...now: post as usual, then go back to something you want to be a link and highlight it by right clicking and rolling mouse over, then click on the link icon on your posting toolbar and type in the web address, then you just will have the name of site or person's name posted, not the whole web address...if this doesn't make any sense or if you need more info, email me :)

Happy birthday Ginny. Lost count of the number of roses!!!!

Love the bumper crop of velvets. You lucky thing - and that skirt ... fabulous. I agree, think big. I did that when I learned to crochet - no small baby things for Hannah but a full size grown-up waistcoat with an intricate pattern for mum! Much more rewarding!

Enjoy ...

catieann said...

the roses are beautiful. what a romantic hubby. mine is like that too and he used to give me a white rose every valentine's day since that is what he did on our very first.

the last few years he has 'forgotten' the white one but sill lauds me with roses.

love all the fabric roses as well. i have directions for making your own ribbon roses. it is not difficult at all.c
