Searching for White Roses ...

Searching for white roses amongst the thorns ....
Consider the image below as my rose garden ... piles and piles of china serving as the "rose bushes" waiting to be pruned ... today I'm looking for white roses to cut ...

Be careful ... there are those sharp and pesky thorns to 
contend with ...

I spy some pretty whites in full bloom ... do you?

How about this one ... an old fashioned white cabbage rose with a hint of pink ...

 Off to the potting shed to make a fancy arrangement ...
 
Okay ... I'm really working hard making china tiles for the class I'm teaching in California next week, it helps to get lost in fantasy for a bit ... but, I am searching for the ones with white roses, they're always the most elusive of the bunch !!

Happy White Wednesday everyone ... I hope your day is full of sweet roses!
Thanks for hosting Kathleen!

  7. I have been saving pieces of my fav china mishaps... and hope one day to learn the Art of Mosaic china cutting so that I can put these damaged lovelies to good use... I never have the heart to discard them... so they're tucked away for that special time in the future... wish I lived closer to take your Class!

  11. Hi Jill, I'm sure whatever you come up with it will be lovely! I used to do mosaics and had so much fun playing with old china! Need to get back to doing that sometime soon! Good luck with your class! Julie
