Autumn Roses and some small changes

Autumn is a fantastic time of the year, I'm definitely enjoying it.
The English Roses in my garden have been giving me larger and better flowers that don't fade so quickly and beautiful heavenly scents that stay forever.(even when the petals are dried)

Whenever I see pictures of English Roses on other people's blogs, my heart still skips a beat!
Must be the old rose look, the beauty is so amazing.

These next three photos below were taken with the manual settings on my camera, I was experimenting.
I'm happy with all the different moods they display.
I made some small changes to the display on the little console table in our casual dining area, can you tell?

You probably won't rememeber, here's a BEFORE photo,
And here's the AFTER.
I painted the picture frame antique white, it was gold before, I added two ornate spoons which I got years ago and made a 3D framed art. I moved my French grey wire cloche and cake stand from another part of the room and placed a white teacup and saucer with some teaspoons in it. I used some old books to make the Patisserie sign I painted stand taller. The candlestick remains, you can't see clearly in the pictures, but it lends height to this little decor.
I also decorated this picture frame with four pate knives, it adds a punch of colours to the top of my kitchen bench.
