Painting Roses

Now that I only have two roses to tend to on my Myrtle Beach balcony (compared to my once sprawling rose garden I sold in Pennsylvania), I find myself longing to capture the thrill of more bountiful blooms. In the past, I would photograph my own roses constantly posing in my garden or travel to the nearby Hershey Gardens to film the pleasantry of petals, but considering the nearest rose garden is approximately 2 hours away, I ponder the possibilities of painting roses instead.  Thankfully, YouTube provides much guidance and inspiration as I embark on creating and collecting a unique rose garden…on paper!

Stepping Things Up

Although I am only researching changes to the outdoor of my home at the moment, these indoor steps certainly invoked my imagination. Much to my husband’s demise, my home decor is adopting more and more of a rose cottage look due to my obvious obsession with roses. Naturally, this idea inspired me.

Equally intriguing is the idea of placing rose wall paper along the back treads of the steps. How charming! wallpaperedstepsMy husband may disagree, however. When it comes to roses, home decor, and planning out my garden, I tend to elaborately dream. Unfortunately, my husband lacks such creativity because he knows he will be the one making such dreams come true. Indeed, Pinterest could be the demise of many marriages! Ha!
