Everything’s Coming Up Roses

Posted by Mairi from mairidesign

My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in june;
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune:

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I:
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till all the seas run dry.

By Robert Burns, 1794

We each hold a favourite colour of rose and we may also attach some sentimental meaning to particular colours, but ultimately, the rose is seen as a timeless symbol of love.

The team have selected their rose flower items to share with you today, enjoy!

Judy Merashoff from JAMsCraftCloset says:

 

This hand-painted, heart-shaped glass serving tray would make the perfect gift, especially with the pink roses, which symbolize gratitude, grace, admiration, and joy. Share the LOVE…

Hand Painted Pink Roses Platter

Sandra Darlene from SDDigitalDesign says:

 

Roses are my favorite flowers. They are beautiful and elegant and are an effective way to communicate without having to say a word. Roses send a clear message of love and whisper what words cannot say. They speak volumes in their own language.

I designed this floral print for those times we need to express ourselves but aren’t exactly sure what to say. Who will you share a rose with today?

Cristal Hughes from DesignsbyCristal says:

 

Roses are one of my favorite flowers. I had red roses in my wedding bouquet and white roses were given to me the day before my wedding by my now husband. I still get my favorite red ones here and there during the year.
I love them so much that they are used in my aroma therapy machine. It smells so good in my home!!

Pink Rose Martingale Dog Collar

Lizzy and Boo from LizzysBibsandBobs says:

 

Roses mean a lot to me because they remind me of my Dear Sweet Mother – both the sight and smell of them will always evoke fond memories of her. She spent many happy hours in her garden tending to her Roses and there was always a vase full of these beautiful flowers sitting on her sideboard or dining table! I love this beautiful gold Rose pin and I know my mother would have too…

Long Stem Gold Rose Brooch

Nancy Duncan from EponasCrystals says:

 

Pink Rose Stud Earrings – Pink roses are my favorite! Light Pink roses represent gentleness and admiration.

Pink Rose Earrings

Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals says:

 

For Kids who suffer from Cystic Fibrosis — the kids cannot pronounce it and call is 65 roses–this charm is to support that cause.

As the rose is seen as a timeless symbol of love, I wanted to design something that not only symbolized love but also a showed off of a few of the things I love. My favorite color is blue and my favorite bead to work with resembles a satin bead.

These elegant dangle earrings are perfect for that lady who likes simple but classy accessories. They are light-weight and so easy to wear for a long period of time. A perfect gift idea! She’ll love them! You have to see them to appreciate them.
