I think I am the only one around still putting away the Christmas decorations.
They are all out of the rooms throughout the house; however,
they are hiding in the bonus room waiting to be boxed up and put away.
When you know that there is still much work to do
but you need a little break now and then,
you need that quiet place where you can sit
and have a sense of beauty and serenity around you.
So I created my first winter vignette of the year for the coffee table.
Several months ago, I spotted these beautiful lavender roses in the grocery store.
After a few days of being in the vase,
I decided that they would be wonderful dried.
So I proceeded to dry them rather than let them bloom out in the vase.
The bouquet of the dried lavender roses have been
gracing one of the shelves of the dining room hutch.
Until now . . . placed on a silver trophy tray with a lidded monogram candle
and one of my favorite ironstone creamers.
I accompanied the silver tray items with an ironstone tureen of preserved boxwood
and an ironstone pitcher that sits on top of some decorating books with lavender covers.

When I was at the grocery store, I spotted more lavender roses.
They jumped into my cart.
I am not sure why I have been so attracted to the lavender roses lately.
As yellow roses are truly my favorite.
Into a vintage ironstone creamer they went.
Could it be the soft romantic color of it?
Not to mention loving the fragrance of lavender itself.
Maybe attracted to the soft romantic colors during the winter
that go so well with the warm glow of a candle.
So how about you? Are you more attracted to the softer colors of flowers during the winter?
Or do you stick with your favorite colors and even those that coordinate with your room.
What is your favorite rose?
Have a great day!….Glad that my site is back as it was down for a couple of days.
But all’s well that ends well!
