The beauty of an unexpected red rose...


We planted a bunch of climbing roses along our white picket fence earlier this year. Some of them were larger than others, so their growth rates have varied. This plant was among the smallest and I didn’t really think it would do much of anything this year but it did recently bloom ~ a glorious burgundy red rose. Isn’t it beautiful?
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

More sewing projects...



As I mentioned earlier, I have been taking sewing classes to learn to sew. Our latest projects were a tote bag and a pair of pajama bottoms. I’m happy to say both of mine turned out really cute. The tote, above, has a pretty interior (impossible to take photos of), with a white and gray polka dot lining and pockets made out of the same Parisian fabric used on the outside.



The pajama bottoms turned out a bit large, but cute nonetheless. The pocket on the back even lined up nicely. All in all, I am learning a lot and really enjoying it.
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

Pink room inspiration...


Isn’t this room lovely? I adore the pink chairs in front of the fireplace and the pink wallpaper is divine. Just a bit of inspiration for your week.
