Rosette Party ... and a swap coming up {plus a giveaway!}

Nothing says romance better than an old fashioned rosette or two or ... twenty !!
That's how I like mine ... in great big bunches, just like bouquets.

A few Parisian Inspiration roses covering a mannequin ....

Coral silk with every inch covered in Prairie Gypsy Rosettes

A whole bucket full of more rosettes

If I'm limited to only one at a time ... I like them on a 
jean jacket, purse, hat, or lampshade
endless possibilities!

I see so many pretty rosettes created out "here" in blogland ... so many pretties I would like to have for myself, I bet a few of you may feel the same way.

So, here are three things I thought I could do to help the situation:
2.) Giveaway a rosette or two ...
3.) Host a rosette swap!!

I've completed number 1 already, but you'll have to stop back on this
Sunday to read all the details for 2 & 3 !!

I'm sure everyone will be ready to trade roses after seeing all the eye candy over at The French Cupboard during this most "rosy" of blog parties!

    I'd love for to drop by for a peek at my rosettes.

  12. I just spent a while visiting around your blog. Your creations are beautiful! I have been repurposing vintage/old jewelry since the 80's off and on. More off than on tho. It is getting harder to find vintage pieces to use without paying a small ransom for them around here. I have not done much in a while - other stuff going on. Even tho I have a small place to work in a guest room, I always end up at the dining table and lately I have had to keep it clear for people to eat and things like that. :-D
    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  13. Jill,
    I'm loving all the rosettes too and great ideas you have for continuing on with the party!!

    Also, have loved your rosettes forever!

  15. These Rosettes are all so lovely I'd be challenged to pick a favorite! Having a tutorial on how to make some using my own found treasures and Bohemian Bling would be so much fun!
