Bed of Roses

I love collecting interesting little things.
My friend made this cute little shoe pincushion for me
 My lovely rose lamp
Hubby and I love our 'bed of roses'.

  1. Hi EllenaElizabeth,
    I love your rose lamp, its so pretty! How special and treasured your musical jewelery box is. I still have the first flower my husband ever gave me 37 years ago. Your room is full of love and sweet keepsakes, I love that.
    Have a sweet week,

  2. Dearest EllenaElizabeth,

    Lovely embroidered rose doily in red with your wedding picture in romantic rose frame! Congrats; we both got married in the same year.
    Hugs and love to you,

  3. Hello Elena Elizabeth,
    I love seeing your treasures! So many items you cherish. I am touched seeing the lovely image of you and your husband on your wedding day. It doesn't seem that long ago does it?

  4. Lovely photo's, I really want one of those jewelery boxes. I saw one the other day,while thrifting,but one of the drawers was missing :( I'll keep looking :)
