~ Simple beauty ~


I took a few more photos of my roses today.
Yes...the same Valentine roses (previous post)
Wilting...fading...yet still so beautiful to me.


 I'm always changing things up and decorating, so I put the roses in my living room.
I love the natural light in this room.
I like to keep my flowers, especially roses, as long as possible.
Simple beauty...


xo,
Rachel

So beautiful pictures, Rachel.
I wonder that little table beside the sofa. Is that from India? It looks just the same I have, which I am not allowed to paint (my husband).

Hugs Bente

The best part about working in a flower shop is that at the end of the day I get to take home all the flowers that the florist thinks aren't good enough to sell...all the wilted and faded roses I can gather from the trash can! :)
Yours are beautiful! I love the color and aren't they best when the petals start dropping...

Those roses are so gorgeous!! Thank you again for the dresser!! I don't know if you noticed, but we changed out the knobs! Josh found all our old glass knobs! It's looks so cute :)

They are beautiful Rachel! If you hang them upside down in a dark space they will dry perfect. I like pick roses dried the best. Or just do a few. Then you can enjoy them even longer!

Sometimes I think faded roses are even more beautiful than the day they were cut. I love to see my roses on the bush in their last days before their petals fall.

They look so pretty. I think they are even better as they get older;)
Hope you have a great day

Rachel Pallas said...

Thanks so much friends!! :)

* The little side table I believe is from India..I found it at a thriftstore for a few dollars.I thought it was pretty and unique.

* I dont dry my roses..I have tried but I cant seem to get it right!? Any suggestions?? ;)

*The sofa and chair aren't RASC, I wish I could afford Rachel Ashwells, but mine are the Ikea ones.I have had them for a few years and they are really comfortable and affordable.I always buy extra Ikea slipcovers so when one is washing they are still covered. :)

* Rachel Ashwells books are my favourite for inspiration! I think I have every book of hers.

~ Have a beautiful day everyone!! ~
