 Flowers just seem to look prettier arranged in something old
I have a small collection of odd vintage beverage bottles 
and ball canning jars
 These make a really nice little grouping and I love the aqua color

 Some have a bit of rust or are not really very clear 
but the color is a pretty vintage turquoise that only comes with age and time

 This is one of my favorite roses too: Tuscan Sun
Actually all of my roses are my favorites, this just happens to be the most gorgeous today

 Aqua bottles look so summer-y and beach-y...
and right at home with clean white cotton slipcovers 
and bright French ticking pillows
 a simple easy way to invite summer 
into the house...don't you think?


  1. I do so agree with you. Your roses look perfect in your aqua jars and look stunning with your white sofa and bright pillows. Absolutely lovely.

  2. Beautiful painting, I love the white rose and all the texture. My father is a painter and I know for him it is hard to ever be done with a painting. He always sees that it needs a little something, where we do not see that. Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have the supreme scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49


    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

  4. Kelley,
    I love your Tuscan Sun roses in your old bottles and they look especially lovely with those two gorgeous pillows. I can see they are different, but both are beautiful. You know I love your style!

  5. Kelly I love that rose is it a floribunda? How disease resistant is it? Love the color!!

  6. I love any type of flower when I put them into vintage bottles and canning jars, I think it reminds me of my grandmother and the way she would have flowers in her house but in simple arrangements. Yours look wonderful, and I love that rose!
