My sister’s last name is Rose so I am drawn to antique dishes, pictures, linens and everything vintage that has a rose. Becky’s daughter, Jenny, says she’s always going to keep Rose as her last name, too, married or not so I keep hoping they’ll share my love of vintage rose items. All of these old dishes were picked up in various thrift stores for very little money. Nothing matches yet when they’re all displayed together, I think it is lovely.
I went through a phase of sewing pretty squares together and this pink and blue quilt is one of the results. I tell everyone not to underestimate the pleasure of sewing squares together — the fabric in itself is beautiful and does all the work to create a beautiful quilt.
