Happy Loves Roses …


 It was until I started to look through my pictures that I realised how much I actually love flowers….and not just any old flower either! But Roses! they have been my favourite flower forever!

Right from laying them, with my Dad, as a little girl on my Nanna’s grave to my lovely hubby sending me 24 red roses the day after we first met!

….and it wasnt until the other day when I decided to look through our pile of quilts that I realised how far the addiction had got…you see I decided to sell some (quilts) on a well known auction site to raise some money for chrimbo!

When I came across these two below a crocheted one and this pretty duck edged blue durham quilt…these had been lost and tucked away in amoungst all the others…I was thrilled to find them!

I laid the crocheted one on the bed to take some pictures of it (below) and just couldn’t bare to part with it as it looked so pretty on our bed! Right I shall try the next one!

I also laid the next one on the bed (below) a pink durham quilt (single size) and thought! How can I part with this lovely piece paisley pinks and pretty small roses….Na! I can’t part with that either!

The same thing happened quite a few times! but I wasn’t really wasting my time, as I was rediscovering all my old quilts and blankets that I had totally forgot I had! I was in Quilt heaven!


This is a closer picture of the duck egg floral paisley durham quilt that I actually own! hehehe! the times I have tried to find something like this! totally forgetting that i already had this one myself!

Ah time for a cuppa….no extra money earn’t for me! but then I don’t have to waste time, buying the things I already have! LOL!

Speak soon my lovely friends.

Love Happy x

    I adore roses, too! My sweet mama has always loved them also and has always had many varieties of them in her garden! I love them not only for their beauty, but because they make me think of her!Michelle

    Mmmmmmm…..Thanks so much for a little peak into the linens closet! After I finish my cup of tea (yes, we had breakfast together once again!) I am inspired to go take a peak into my long ago stashed beauties and see what is deserving of some "air time". I think I'll bring out all the reds for the holidays. I'm off!

    I know what you mean girl. I keep thinking I should sell my stash of vintage table cloths but then I get them out and fall in love all over again. Roses are my very favorite too. They make me happy whether they grow in my garden, stand in my vase or rest on my fabrics.Debbie

    Hey Happy, I'd be boiling hot lay in bed as I wouldn't be able to decide which one of those lovelies to use, so I'd have to put ALL of them on and suffer for their beauty haha!! Mad as a Hatter as always eh?! x
