A rosy wee weekend...........









Hello Sweet-peas!!!!
Or is that my little rose-buds???

We have had the most lovely weekend with happy visits from two lots of friends.
I was pleased to be finally feeling better after the horrible tummy bug.
I was feeling positively rosy, so I decided to make some rose-water from the last soft rose- petals in the garden. What a simple process and look at the truly beautiful rose pink colour when its finished.
I was so happy with the result I decided to make some more, so with help from the gorgeous Mirabel another batch was brewed.
The weather has changed and you can see the trees sighing as they drop their autumn leaves.
The wee pink cardigan I am wearing was a op-shop buy a few weeks ago, its such a sweet pink and I love the knit pockets. I think the precious woolen knits are going to be a main wardrobe feature from now on.



LOVE V

  2. I love all the pink and rosy photos. The cardigan is gorgeous, so is the crocheted rose brooch. Did you make it yourself? I think it's amazing that you can make your own rose water and I'm surprised that you got so much and that it has this pretty rose colour. Must try that myself soon cause I will use it for Indian desserts. But I will have to wait until June is here cause our roses will open their blossoms still then. But I can thank you for the inspiration even now.

  12. I was going to say what Vix said - I remember making rose water as a child from the roses in my grandparents' garden.
    You look soft and pretty and cosy and... well, rosy, of course!
    Glad to hear you're feeling better. xxxx

  13. Oh V that is the prettiest cardi in such a lovely candy pink. I love the wee pockets too. You look SO pretty as always. That rose water looks divine too. I hope it smells as good as it looks! Xx

  14. Oooh, I missed your bug but am happy that you are better now! And looking so lovely and warm in your pink. The rose water looks good enough to drink - but I suppose that's not a good idea. What happens if you ferment it? Then can you drink it? Okay, I'll stop now. Good to see you!

  15. Yum, looks delicious. Can you tell us how you brew up your rose water, and do you add it to tea/recipes/make a perfume out of it?
