Roses in my Room

When I decorate, I automatically include flowers..Do you do that?  I also gravitate toward the rose, second choice would be peony, and my third choice is the hydrangea.  I choose these as my "go to" flowers when decorating because these flowers tend to be the ones that are not only pretty when they're fresh, but also when created in silk.  They also dry beautifully.

I was enjoying a cup of tea one morning and as I looked around, I began to notice all the various forms of roses that I have in this one room.  I guess I never really thought about it before but I realize how key roses are to making this room feel the way that I want.  Pick up your cup of tea and take a stroll around the room with me.


A white ironstone vase filled with yellow roses sitting in a sunny window.

A grouping of containers with porcelain applique roses and summer flowers.


Stenciled roses on a vintage clock face.

Candlestick and tea tray mosaic roses.

A victorian tea-light candle holder with painted roses.

A decoupage rose clock and a few of my favorite needlework pieces.

Looking into the dining room, there's my favorite rose centerpiece.

I hope you're not on rose overload...I hope you enjoyed looking at all of the rosey loveliness.  When the weather is warm and the sun is shining, the rose bushes are just waiting to provide us with many beautiful blossoms to enjoy indoors and out.

Thanks for visiting me.  Until next time, have a joyful day.

Hello Lady V,
Your roses are just lovely and I never get tired of seeing roses. I love all the same flowers as you do and in that same order too. They are scrumptious, all of them! Thank you so much for stopping by for tea today and I wish you a delightful week ahead.

Blessings,
Sandi

I stopped by a friend's house tonight after church and cut some of his lilacs for bouquets in my house- can you believe he thinks they are weeds and smell terrible!!! Well I am certainly enjoying my bouquets of beauty now!

I too love roses. My father passed away when I was only 9 months old. Mother always said that the rose was his favorite flower. All of your roses real and in your beautiful pieces add so much beauty to your room. Thanks for sharing! I have a new link party, "Share Your Cup Thursday". I would love it if you would share this.
Hugs,
Jann

Hello,
I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Cottage and Broome.' Your blog is lovely. The pink rose centerpiece is so pretty. I did a post recently on pink roses, as they are one of my favorites. Me and my daughters started a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is filled with beauty, and you have many wonderful decorating ideas. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
