In Australia we are moving into Autumn
and we have come to the end
of our rose growing
so this is the time I love to pick the end of the
roses and hang them for drying
in the kitchen.
I am often inspired by the Tea Cup Tuesday segment
on Terri's artful affirmations blog
but never seem to manage posting there
due to all of my other
(Sorry Terri! I will get there eventually!)
So I'm posting a little taste of teacups in my kitchen
at present along with some of my
favourite dried roses!
It takes a little experimenting
to see which varieties of roses handle
and which ones just fall apart.
I must say I am quite partial to the pinks
and these ones (for some reason)
dry the best but, of course, there are no rules
as these colours look quite beautiful also.
Thought you might like to see some of the china
and depression glassware
sitting in the corner of my kitchen at present
as a reminder that all of the beautiful pastel shades
of Summer have not totally left us yet.
I was gifted this beautiful book from a dear friend, Marion,
a couple of years ago
It contains some inspiring words of wisdom
and this page is just one you might like to read.
We can certainly to with more of these positive
thoughts and words in our lives today -
Thanks for sharing some natural beauty here with me!
and for the kindness you show when you
visit and follow me too!
Love, Suzy xox
