My Roses Are Not Just In My Garden….

Hello there dear friends both new and old…  With all the celebration of Spring and the first of the roses budding in my garden I thought I would share with you my…
“Other Rose Garden!” otherwise known as the Master Bathroom.  I collect vintage rose prints and postcards…. Take a look!

This is a simple message board that I picked up at a yardsale for $1!  I added the green ribbon and it makes a perfect place to display my postcards.  Almost all of the cards date from 1908 – 1918.  I love them and have over 100, I will be posting more about them soon.

I love our over-sized bathtub and I use decanters to keep my bath oils.  
They look much prettier than the plastic bottles.

This is a tin that I also added a green ribbon too.

This one is an original I think, it looks to be so by the paper.  
I am afraid to take it out of the frame to check, it is very fragile.

These are pages from an old rose botanical book from the early 1900s.  
They have prints on the back as well so I could flip them over and have “new art”.

This mirror is a family heirloom from my husbands side.  
It is EXTREMELY heavy and it was a chore mounting it here.  
It use to hang over the fireplace in our previous home

So as you can see, even in our winter months I can have a bit of my rose garden here inside.  
Where did I get all of these?  I am a big thrifter and yardsaler. 
If it has a rose on it, it almost always finds its way home with me… lol.  

I have tons of buds on my real roses, expect new pictures some time this week!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
