Sadly, there is not one real flower to be had at J and P Towers today (very remiss of Mr J and P not to buy me any). So, instead, this is what I've found:
Lovely Rosali duvet cover from Ikea. Scrummy, n'est pas?
I love this painting in our bedroom. It's entitled La Fenetre a La Goulette by Albert Marquet. I like to lie in bed gazing at it and imagining that it is really the view out of our bedroom window. Sigh.........
More roses, this time on a Cath Kidston oil cloth adorning our dining table:
A sketch of a lily by Little Miss J and P:
Another flower daubing by Little Miss J and P when she was very little:
A detail of a vintage silk scarf which I've made into a ....you guessed it......a cushion cover:
Flowers on a tea cup. It's a Midwinter and the design is "Sunglow":
Flowers on a vase. It's New Devon pottery (50p from a jumble sale):
Flower fairy lights adorning our mirror in the hall:
Beautiful pics of roses from The Concise Handbook of Roses published in 1966. Another jumble sale buy.
Even more roses. Great Grandmama J and P (aka Gladys) was a dab hand at painting flowers. Roses were her speciality.
Not bad eh for someone who took up painting in her sixties!
Another tray to add to the collection:
Why don't you pop over to Sarah's and feast your eyes on some more floral delights!
