Pastel Roses & French Ephemera



"And I will make thee beds of roses,
and a thousand fragrant posies."

~ Christopher Marlowe ~



I love both versions of these roses...
the vibrant hues of the roses at the top, as
 well as the soft blush of those below.

Thank you!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Have a blessed day!

  1. Love these pastels. Your collages are so well done. I appreciate the stationery you create as well, especially since I can "write" a letter on the computer, print it out and have something legible...my handwriting is not attractive. I used your latest version to write a note to my son and d-i-l for their anniversary and enclosed it with the card I made. Thanks again for your lovely freebies.

    1. Thank you Janet!! Thought you might enjoy the quote ~ it sounded like something I might read in one of your poems :)

      I'm not an aunt yet, but hopefully very close to being one :) I know my sister-in-law would love to have him soon (Dayton will be his name) ~ her estimated due date is May 2nd, so any day now!

  10. Your works are amazing again, dear friend! And I will use your stationary as notes to be fixed on my altered washboard. If hubby and daughter want to leave a message for me they can do so on the most beautiful paper instead of blank whites! Thank you so much for all this work you have done to please us all! Manu
