The Vintage Rose Trunk


What could be more romantic than a trunk full of vintage roses?



I recently took this plate down from its display on the wall, and it hasn't found a new place yet. But it's looking fine nestled in with a pile of vintage linens and laces.



This vintage curtain panel gets to come out and parade for awhile like the bloom of late roses. The ones I don't have.



A pile like this leaves me feeling a little girlish, like I once felt draping my dolls on a Saturday afternoon, imagining I was whatever and wherever I wanted to be. . . .  It seems to be working its magic on me again. . . .

















I hope you get a little carried away today too!
Ciao! for now!

The tray with roses is too pretty. I have been holding the sofa down all afternoon and doing a very good job of it.

Hi J,
This looks like a lovely way to play a Saturday morning away! Love all the rosy delights:-) We have traded themes for the day, I have ironed more white linen then I should own and am tired of playing house :-)
Hugs,

First, thank you for posting the above, De-select... That has made all the difference for me. I love your vignettes. Inspiring! I have very similar looking things. I may spend my afternoon doing set-ups and pictures for my "Tea Treasures Thursdays. I am not linked yet but have chosen that theme.

I have old flowered plates standing in my garden, just barely submerged in the soil and they look really nice.
Your idea of pairing china with linens like this is a great idea, I never thought to do something similar indoors.
Bloggers like you share the best ideas and inspirations.
