I love roses and their scent. It is one of my favourite flowers, the others being, lilacs, violets, daffodils, stocks, lily of the valley, wild primroses, lavender and bluebells.
I like many others too but those are my absolute favourite and as a result will frequently
feature in my house in one form or another.
Here is a selection of some of my fabrics and things featuring roses.

One of my favourites
Great Grandmother Louisa Tummon. It was handed down each
generation and now is with us. My husband Alan is very interested in
Family tree and as a result many things are passed down to him for safe
keeping or to be investigated further. The chamber pot is something I
would chose to buy if I saw it at an antique market but the fact that
it has history behind it and that it belonged to Alan's Great Great Grandmother
makes it all the more special.
