Smell the roses...

Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start.  I know mine is.  I have had so much I want to share with you all as of late, but I have been working away on trying to finish my Spring line. Soon though!

Speaking of Spring line...

Exciting news!! I will be revealing all I have been working on next week and the opening of my Etsy!  So excited...lots of butterflies fluttering around in my stomach.  This is a first for me to really put myself out there...a little scary, but as I shared with you...I am ready to follow my dreams!

A few days ago I bought these beautiful vintage medicine bottles at an antique store here.  I knew when I found them, I envisioned them grouped together with pretty flowers.  I saw these gorgeous roses in multiple colors and couldn't help but do a little photo shoot to share.

I realize in all this hustle and bustle of creating and trying to make it to the finish line, I need to remember to "take time to smell the roses..."

Loved the way the sunlight would shine on the roses...

I hope to be back with another post this week.  There is more exciting things coming this way soon I want to share!! 

I better get back to work! Enjoy your week friends and remember take time to smell the roses! ;)

Hugs and love friends,
