A rose is a rose...

Exquisite roses decorate my home this Christmas. I was buying bunches to give to my clients as a thank you for their business and...I could not resist to buy more for myself. They are a delicate cream color with a hint of pale green around the petals and a subtle pink in the heart. The true color is not seen well on the screen but trust me, they are creamy and gorgeous.
Some are placed in a crystal bowl near my favorite books, you may notice two books (on Michael S. Smith and on Orlando Diaz-Azcuy) written by Diane Dorrans Saeks of  The Style Saloniste blog and on the right a great giveaway I received last Christmas from Garvinweasel blog (on Axel Vervoordt). Many more books of course in the background.

I have put some roses also in a Christmas arrangement with holly, pine and winter greenery.

Albarosa: All our flowers, our mantels decked with greens and berries, our tables set with care, our dinners, and gifts are the way we all express love. I think some people think we are silly, yet in reality we deck the halls with love. Your house is beautiful and set with love. Merry Christmas to you!
