Paper, Lace & Roses.


Paper, Lace & Roses. There is something about vintage papers, pretty fabric & pale pink blooms that just spell romance. I guess I'm just a cheesy sap at heart. :) But regardless, I "Heart" all of it.



I have to admit, I've been going a little "Rose Crazy" for the past week or so! Maybe it's because I've been knee deep in paint & projects, that I just needed "some pretties" in my life. :)


So if I'm not at our local organic market {and/or at Trader Joe's} buying blooms, then you can find me grabbing some fleurs at the Farmer's Markets nearby...yes, they are year round and pretty much open rain or shine here! :)


These caught my eye because of their "tea-stained" look, if that's even a way to describe it. :)


With its pale outer petals & dark inner rims.


And of course I like to choose them in different hues. This one here has a slightly darker shade to it.


And even in its faded glory, these blooms look perfect to me, nestled within a vintage french tea cup.


So I place them out & about my home...but realistically, I just put them where there isn't any "fixer upper chaos." Which is limited, that's why you'll pretty much only see pictures of only "two places" in my home right now...because the rest of it is "still in progress!"



Paper, lace & roses.

Beautiful. Simple. Sweet. :)



Here's wishing all of my lovely friends a wonderful day! Enjoy your upcoming weekend!


XO'S,
Jessie

I love your flowers with your fleur de lis pitcher on the shabby bistro chair. So perfect! We are having a snowy day here in Colorado, we need the moisture. You are so lucky to have all the great farmer's markets!

I love the roses in the pitcher! What a cute chair! I love vintage stuff but I am not good at figuring out how to decorate with it and make it look good. :) It looks like you don't have that problem.:)

Absolutely gorgeous! Those are my favorite kinds of roses - when they are ivory or pale at the stem and then "stained" pink at the edges. So pretty :)
