Parlour Roses

Every once in a while, I come across some beads, images or charms that instantly tug at my heart strings and instantly inspire me. These lovely botanical prints of old roses took my breath away. I couldn't get out my bead board fast enough. I adore roses, and I love the lush blooms in these images as well as the old world backgrounds that are used. The roses make me think of old fashioned bouquets of garden roses, placed in a vase in a parlour or foyer. I have been working on a few different new designs for pendant frames, and working with these images has given me lots of new ideas.
