SOWING ROSES AROUND THE STUDIO...

My nose and I thank you all for your sweet concern and we are both doing just rosy. It is not serious and I will heal in a few weeks time. The bruising is much more faint than I anticipated and some concealer does the trick quiet well for a trek out in public.

I have been sowing a few roses around the studio. The globes I ordered on Ebay for the new light fixture finally came in and I love them. To me they look like creamy roses blooming out of cut glass bowls...They finish off the fixture nicely. I wish they stood up a little higher out of the bowl but this is the best it gets as far as fit goes. I love their soft creamy glow. When I am working and need more light I can just pop them off so I get pretty and practical all in one, a very rosy solution.I have still been fusing with my window treatments too and decided to add a few vintage millinery roses plucked from an old tattered hat...The rest of the plucked blooms fill a decorative jar...Vintage mink roses drape gracefully from a shelf...
I picked up these great rose covered vintage hat boxes not too long ago and I am using them to hold collage papers, small left over bits in the small one and larger pieces in the other...I have begun working on decor for the sewing wall and added this old iron hat rack with a yellow rose motif just above my sewing area...I love saving flowers I have been given and drying them. I bundled a few roses my husband gave me with some cockscomb my daughter gave me and let them dry, tucking them into a little vintage silk handbag with a dainty hanky, vintage postcard, and a found birds nest nestling a pale blue speckled faux egg...As you can see, I am making very small strides of progress to get the pretty part done in the studio. I so wish I had more time to share and visit with you all here today but duty calls and I must answer. How about I leave you with a pretty thought on friendship and how beautiful I find yours to be...

But friendship is the breathing rose, with sweets in every fold.

And a pretty background I designed that you can use in your artwork...(FREE BACKGROUND IMAGE)

I hope your day is a sweet one!

Many Blessings,
Miss Sandy

Your chandy is magnificent with those globes! What inspiration you must get from them. Your studio is looking quite fab too, but I knew it would. Love the purse you have hanging stuffed with odds & ends... you make it look so easy. Thanks for the background image, love the look, I'm always attracted to things with old dress patterns involved.
Loved my visit here today... well I do everytime I'm here!!

Hugs, Sherry
