"A profusion of pink roses being ragged in the rain speaks to me of all gentleness and its enduring." ~ William Carlos Williams
Good morning! I wanted to take some pictures of my pale pink roses before they wilt away. I repurposed an old ironstone gravy server as a vase. With the cold winter months, I find myself buying flowers weekly. I can't help it; they just make me happy. Another thing that makes me happy is finding vintage books! I am a little obsessed with that right now. I found this beautiful copy of The Secret Garden over the weekend. It is not too tattered or too antique, but I love its mint green jacket with the tiny pink climbing roses.
It is illustrated lovingly by the sweet departed Tasha Tudor. I just adore anything by Tasha Tudor. She was an amazing woman who lived a truly beautiful life.
Another photo of my withering roses. I like how it looks slightly frosty on the window.
My mom, sister, and little niece are coming over today for a visit. We always have some really good laughs when we get together. I love that! My kids get so excited, too. My daughter is already drawing pictures for her auntie, because she knows my sister loves art. My sister is a student at The Art Institute in Chicago; a wonderful school and an incredible art museum to see! We are a family of creativity-loving girls.
I'll be back next week, hopefully with some new and fresh flowers. ;)
