You Love the Roses...

You love the roses... so do I. I wish 
the sky would rain down roses, as they rain 
from off the shaken bush. Why will it not?
Then all the valley would be pink and white 
and soft to tread on. They would fall as light as feathers, smelling sweet; and it would be 
like sleeping and like waking, all at once!

~ George Eliot ~

Isn't that poem beautiful?  Don't be fooled by the name...
George Eliot was a pen name for Mary Anne Evans,
an Englishwoman.  She is considered by many to be
one of the finest authors of the Victorian era.

Here are the free graphics 
sources used in my artwork:

*Altered Bits*

Just to let you know... I added a new tab
at the top of my blog ~ More Free Graphics ~ listing
many resources I visit for free images, textures, and
inspiration!  Have fun checking them out! 

Thank you for stopping by!!

  4. Oh, Megan, thank you so much for these gorgeous creations! Both backgrounds are beautiful, and you have given us a wonderful array of formats.: )

    The poem is lovely, too; "like sleeping and like waking, all at once" is the perfect way to describe the scenario she imagines, and it's a turn of phrase I've never encountered before. Just beautiful.

    Thank you again.♥

  15. Thank you so much for such lovely graphics. The poem is perfect for the artwork! We would never mind the rain if it were roses, would we?

  16. Beautiful! Yes, I love the poem very much and of course your stunning art-work! Megan, I very seldom check my spam folder but I did just now and found your comment there!

    We had a family reunion and I hung out with Lucy and her fam:)

    Take care.

  29. Thanks so much for the printables! I love crafts and I always have new ideas but unfortunately crafting can get expensive. The Victorian roses are beautiful and being able to print them to use is such a blessing! Thanks for all you do!

  30. I love all of your work. It is so inspiring to me. You have a beautiful personality and it shows on your work. Thank you so much for helping me to restore my own personality with your work. I have a huge memory loss. This helps me think about what i use to create. Although your work is much more perfect. The fact that it is free for my family is what makes you such an amazing person.

  31. I love how you compile a list of the items you use in your projects Thanks so much for doing that. Sometimes I will see something in a background that I want but then spend hours finding it, if I find it. Thanks so much again for your pretty things.
