Market Roses and Vintage Linen




























Adore these gorgeous vintage rose serviettes, all hand stitched on a fine quality linen. Even better they were a gift from a generous friend.

Picked up some beautiful perfumed roses from the markets yesterday.
The only place to take photo for the best light was out on the back deck.
It was one of those wet and overcast summers day! Love these roses and I always grab them when I can, so colourful and sweet smelling.
At $5 a bunch why wouldn't you?

Have a lovely week.

Hi Pam, you have a knack at finding the most beautiful vintage linen! I love the picture of the red rose next to the napkins. A few days ago I found some wonderful vintage pillow cases on Etsy. They are trimmed in hand crocheted lace and have embroidered roses. Roses are my favorite too. Have a lovely day! Delisa :)
