Roses for my MOM Rose

When I knew I was visiting my mom she told me to bring my brushes. You See, if you don't already mom is ROSE. My favorite flower to paint! She had something for me to her, she is my most ardant and faithful fan and supporter. I can see my progress as a rose artist by the things she has collected from me over the past few years. What she asked me to do was paint some roses as a backdrop or border around her kitchen work area. I told her I really felt sweet clusters of roses would be so much easier on the eye...and she agreed! I was so happy to oblidge!

So Sorry about the blurriness of this, this is above her kitchen window.
A sweet corner met with a rose swags!
This is the area above her stove as you can see!
And a close up of that same shot above her stove.
My mom, Rose...Don't they have a lovely home!

Thanks for stopping in...Lorena

Good Evening Lorena! It was so wonderful to met you when you were here for your visit, I am keeping your hubby and your whole family in my prayers...any news on the job front??

Sure wish we had a camera, I feel stupid for leaving it in the van, but the thing is one of those big old ones that weigh a ton and I thought for sure we had missed you! I am getting one of those new smaller ones for Christmas, my hubby has promised...I complain about it a lot! Shame on me! Victoria left yesterday, I miss her sooo much, she was happy to get back to 80' weather and says she will never move back here...sigh, I am so sad about that!

Take care and have a great day tomorrow!
Donna Lynn
