Cartes Postales

I created more of these pretty lavendar satchets for my shop similiar to the ones shown in Romantic Homes Magazine this month..And Thank you for your sweet comments on my new shop opening..
Do you love roses???

Roses and more roses....


I found some great stuff this weekend ,like this vintage french postcard album..The pages are just as lovely as can be with the cherub angles and doodles on each page .



The old little sticker still on the inside... As well as this cream vintage album with sparrows embossed on the front..Not sure what I will do with them..I thought the lined paper would be pretty scanned and then printed to write notes on.




And today I recieved a ton of fresh garden flowers from my dear neighbor who has literally a rose bush farm going, there are so many..I am glad I have lots of little vase, even canning jars help!






I even left some on the day porch ..I am doing the wedding flowers for my Brothers wedding next Saturday and i thought how lovely would these be in a wedding bouquet...






So romantic...

Hi there Andrea,

Yes,yes, and yes, boy, do I love roses! Your roses are so gorgeous and all of your pics are so easy on the eye for that matter. Unfortunately, my roses are being devoured by the japanese beetles and so I cannot enjoy the second flush or reemergence... However, my hydrangeas are bountiful! LOVE my hydrangeas! Anyway, this is my first time saying hello and will be back for sure! If you ever get a chance to visit me, I'd love to have you come say hi at: thespanishdahlia.typepad.com

Have a great weekend,
~ Steph
