Christmas is just around the bend.......

Hiya, I'm still here, all is well; just extremely busy, I'm sure you can relate. I was a bit slow to start decorating this year, but once I got started, I had so much fun. Here are some photos. I'll definitely get back to Tips for growing roses later, I haven't forgotten about them.
In the Lounge RoomA bit of playfulness for the kids' sake.............
Not forgetting roses as well...............
Roses used here: St. Cecilia (light pink) and Radio Times (medium pink) In the Living Room/Dining/ Kitchen area
See the red and green?
Have a great weekend, my dear friends!Align Left

How gorgeous! I love how you have decorated your home. I'm so excited to find your blog - someone who loves roses and can help with growing them! Homegrown roses in the garden or in a vase are one of my favourite things! Have a beautiful rosy Christmas!

Hi Rosy, I love your roses and your home !!! I live in west south of France and I have a little garden with about more than 100 roses, old roses, english roses and roses from all the world (Germany, belgium, Canada...). Actually, it is cold, rainy and sometimes freezing at night so I'm waiting for the spring, of course ! I wish you a merry christmas and a happy new year ! talk you soon, marie christine

HI, It's very hard for me to get to your site and to have all the pictures develop. It takes me forever due to the fact I don't have a good internet sevice. BUT when I do I just sit back and enjoy it very much. I love roses, specially if there white or pink. Your home is so bright, cheery and very delightful. If you like I would love for you to come over to visit my new blog. I have a bird name Rosie-I think you will get a kick out of it!
Thanks~
