Roses On the Fireplace

Hey friends.


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.


Ours was good.


Spent some time today picking strawberries with my girls.  Homemade strawberry jelly is just around the corner.


I wanted to share a couple of photos with you before I head off to the first softball game of the season for my youngest.

The beautiful white roses were waiting for me when I arrived home from my trip to Louisiana.  He knows what I love.



mantel 5 yes



mantel 6 yes



The beautiful red and yellow roses were a gift from my mom’s gorgeous rose bushes at her house.  I picked them yesterday while there for a visit.  They had a long drive home and didn’t hold up too well but are still beautiful.  My mom can grow anything.


I love roses.  I love tulips.  I love any kind of fresh flower.  I don’t have a green thumb so I tend to grow herbs and buy ferns. 


Have a wonderful rest of your night.  God bless…

So pretty Amy, love how you have the roses on your mantle. Those have to be the whitest roses ever! I am jealous you have strawberry season already, ours is still a good 2 months off! They are so much sweeter when grown locally. Have fun making jelly:-)

Beautiful roses and they look gorgeous there.

I just picked up fresh strawberries the other day in town... hard to believe the strawberry season is already here! One of my favorite things to do in the spring is go and pick fresh strawberries.

Hi Amy,
I have always admired people who know how to make jam/jelly/ perserves. Is it difficult to do? Anyway, your vignette is beautiful and the roses are a beautiful touch. Wishing you a beautiful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
