A rose by any other name...
to be artificial or not to be artificial..
that is the question!









"I once had a rose named after me and I was very flattered. But I was not pleased to read the description in the catalogue: no good in a bed, but fine up against a wall."
                  ~Eleanor Roosevelt

  16. I don't think I'd like a rose named after me if that was the description, sweetpea! I think I'd prefer "fabulously pink, delicate and can withstand a lot of storms while laughing merrily"!

  18. The Eleanor quote is a hoot! Of course I stop to smell the roses... but maybe not when it's artificial. ;-) Isn't that a new header, Annie? Cute...

  19. Now that's something to think about. If it's artificial it is fake but it will be lasting. Now, if its fresh it will fade and die.

    Much like love. Bloody red...

    Now, its time for your manicure, Anni!

  26. Such a beautiful rose but I had to giggle when I read Eleanor Roosevelt's quote! hehe I can quite understand why she wasn't pleased with that description of a rose:-)

    I've read through all of your other posts that I missed and oh my, I just love the drawing you did of the OZ cast. The frame and matte is also perfect for it!!

    Glad you liked the pictures I sent you of Lily, she is a little cutie isn't she:-) xoxo
