Roses, Roses

Today is just about roses. I love pink ones, but also red. (Oh, who am I kidding - all roses are gorgeous, aren't they? I just don't necessarily collect things with the other colors on them, that's all)
I found this record album at a thrift shop, and I bought it simply because the cover was too pretty to resist!
I'd like to put it in an LP frame from Michael's and hang it up somewhere:
And I recently bought a big lot of antique postcards - many of which feature roses:
The cards with red roses on a silver background are especially stunning. I framed three of them in these small silver wooden frames:

As is the case with so many of my favorite things, I will never tire of vintage roses.

So much beauty today. I love your lot of rose postcards. I love the three you framed. I just love those old silver wooden frames. Have a nice weekend. Twyla

That's an Awesome collection of Roses, Heidi Ann! I think it'd be very difficult to pick a favorite... really liked your idea of framing the silver-type ones in silver frames... thought they had a very Romantic "feel" to them... Hope you're doing well, and that you have a wonderful weekend...

Heidi!! Next time you come up to visit, we will have to take you to the test gardens - Portland is called the "Rose City" because many kinds of roses are "tested" here before they get marketed to different nurseries all over the country.
