just a glimpse

As many of you know I love myself some Somerset Life….
and their recent challenge to create something beautiful with peat pots
instantly sent my mind dreaming....
 though many fanciful ideas made their way into my imagination...
just one little something is all my time would allow.
so one petite peat pot became the new home to three white roses…
created with some favorites like vintage lace and dress patterns…

 bits of tattered tulle…and sprinklings of seeds too.
white roses in winter….on their way to a Somerset Life…I hope:)

Wishing you a weekend filled with extra Valentine Love!

XO,

This is so pretty and fresh. I love the combination of the brown sewing pattern tissue with the white lace. Gives the flowers an extra dose of romance!
