Decorating With Roses

"And I will make thee beds of roses
And a thousand fragrant posies."
~Christopher Marlowe

Some of us will never be able to accept that life can't be a bed of roses. We will persist in saying it can be so!

Pinafore & Apron

Rose-bedecked pinafore for those grubby jobs around the house and garden and dimity maid's apron for afternoon tea in the parlor

Small & Quiet Corner

Don't you wish you could go sit in it?

Room With a View

For a room that looks out on a not-so-pretty street, a pretty window treatment is essential. The golden rose chintz is a perfect complement to the green walls.
