Today my friend Julie Little left a big beautiful bucket of roses on our doorstep. Swoon. I emptied the bucket and filled vase after vase. Now the house is overflowing with roses.
I will share this year’s bucket with you. Here are red roses on a red mola.
Yellow roses in a yellow jug on a yellow tablecloth.
White and pink roses on a piece of Russian embroidery.
Purple roses on orange Mexican oilcloth.
Pink and red roses with a stuffed animal from Peru
Roses outside – on a bench painted by Joe Max Emminger.
Roses inside – on stripes, in light and shadow.
This post is light on fabric and heavy on flowers. It’s summer: time to smell the roses and savor life.
Julie Little has given me roses for several years. In 2014 I wrote a post about the roses that she left. I wrote more about fabric in that post: here is a link. I didn’t include her name then, but I am now because I want to thank her out loud for her buckets of generosity.
