Pale pink roses

Well, I'm not getting very much done this weekend with my photography and the roses around my garden as the weather has been totally out of control. We had hail, snow and buckets of rain yesterday and this morning it has been freezing. The winds have been very strong. I cannot believe that it is nearly Summer. Luckily I picked most of the roses on Friday for my shoot and I have styled many different things ready for photographing when the sun comes out. Maybe tomorrow.!! Meanwhile, I have been sorting through some old images which I would love to share with you. Above are the most amazing pink roses from around some of the gardens where I live. At a beautiful old home in Moss Vale I set up an afternoon tea party for a Christening for a little baby girl using Cecil Bruner pale pale pink roses in a baby dolls basket and using little tiny dolls on each tea cup. I also had some babies breath on the table. The veranda was a perfect place for the table, just outside the living room doors.

Little Anna Horler above would now be maybe 25 years old, I just loved her hair cut then, she was one of my favourite little models ever to work with, I also babysat her and her little brothers and sisters which was why she was so comfortable in front of the camera for me.
These images of Anna were from one of my earlier styling designs for my client

I also would like to thank two special women from around the world this week
Minna Mercke from Sweden, her blog Blomsterverkstad
& Shawn Stucker from Country French Antiques, USA

Both Minna and Shawn very kindly did a story on me and my blog last week, I was so touched by their kind words. They are both incredibly creative women and their blogs are just beautiful, a must for all to see and follow. I do!!
I am also so happy to have some new followers, I do hope you enjoy this new post.
