~ My Roses ~


If there is one positive thing about all this rain we are getting it's that my roses are thriving. Take a look at them! If they didn't need water to survive I would leave them right here on my daughters vintage chair looking as pretty as they do.

  9. Gorgeous indeed! And your holiday thrift finds are lovely. I do enjoy how our homes look so wonderful once daylight starts to fade (plus, I can forget about all the dust lurking about). :) Have a wonderful Wednesday. Tammy

  42. Gorgeous colours Simone!
    Also loved your post about how our homes look in the last light of the day ... it's my favourite time of day, the late afternoon and things tend to take on a 'glow'... and homes look cozier as well. I'm putting this on my 'have to photograph' list :)
    Have a luvly day!
