I am artist of texture and color. I enjoy working with textiles, mixed media and the graphic arts. I am an avid cottage gardener with a love for pass along plants and big fluffy pink peonies and pink roses. Many of my tangible creations reflect my love of the garden and all its wonderful colors. I am not one who will settle for neutral colors as they bore me. I have been selling my creations online since 2002 beginning as a hobby and 10 years later my art is my full time passion.

Fresh Cut roses

Really, it was a just a trip to put one fresh bouquet, but I couldn't resist. My roses are having a second go around after resting for a few weeks, So I gathered some of my favorite vintage and new vases and got busy.

This is what I actually set out to cut. David Austin Shakespeare and Glamis Castle roses with false Queens Anne lace. These 2 roses are both extremely fragrant.

 Eden roses so super gorgeous in a this lovely vintage crystal bud vase I picked up an estate sale last summer

 My most challenging vase--shaped like a purse, it has to be stuffed full to look halfway decent!  Zepherine and Mary rose and that mystery yellow rose that I still have not figured out what it is called.

 A big handful of cornflowers are always perfect in an old canning jar. My most recent find at our church parking lot sale, this 2 quart blue mason jar. Not a reproduction. I actually was there when the old guy brought in the box of awesome old jars.

  Fully opened Eden roses are so fluffy almost like pink peonies, they are awesome in this tin vase which I placed on my ladder planter stand.

 Someone asked me to photograph my ladder again when the plants had filled out, so here it is, I have had to replant some of the pots already. 

Below is the pic of the ladder in May

Hi Debbi, I can almost smell the roses through the internet. They are beautiful. I don't know which bouquet I would pick as my favorite because I like them all. Have a wonderful weekend. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

Your roses are truly gorgeous! I had an Eden rose at my previous home and loved it. The purse vase is so unique and your ladder is so full and beautiful. I love the colander on top! Hopped over from Cottage Garden Party. I would love if you linked this to my 'Share Your Cup Thursday' party. It's all about sharing what makes you happy.

Oh.My.Gosh. I need to stop procrastinating and go deadhead. Your roses and arrangements are just stunning!

Pretty bouquets in an array of vases. The ladder is a nice colour and a good way to show off plants.

I am just LOVING your roses! Ours are so dormant right now. We'll get a second round in a month or so when it cools down. Such a lovely post!
Thank you for sharing and linking up for Fresh-Cut Friday!
