Romantic Notions

Hello Everyone!
     I think I mentioned that I was going to take some time this week and play with my camera so today was the day.It is nice and sunny here today and the light in the sun room was just right for taking a few shots.
So I gather up some of my soft and romantic pretty things to do a little shoot.

I am so happy to still have roses in the garden for a little bouquet.
I remembered when I was cutting this rose that a few weeks ago someone asked me the name of it and when I bought it several years ago it had no label on it so it was discounted and of course I had to snap it up as I can't resist a bargain it seems.It is an English rose but that is all I can tell you-sorry.This is the rose photographed by the old picket fence  here when I was asked.

The little perfume bottles -one is very old and the other one is new-a thrift shop find.
This is my favorite of all the pics I took today. I hope you enjoyed my Romantic Notions as I much as I enjoyed taking these pics for you!

Enjoy a beautiful day!

Dear Carolyn,

You made some beautiful photo's! Now and then it's fun trying things out with your camera. You can often do more with it than you think.

Happy wednesday!

So lovely pictures. And the perfume bottle is just adorable. Sure remind us of times that's gone.
Hope you still have lovely weather. Here it's autumn with rain and hard winds.
Love Elzie

Carolyn, These are lovely shots of some of your pretties. I love the sense of peace, gentleness and grace you feel looking at them.

Hi Carolyn
Your photos are very nice, you have always had the knack for getting the angles right - something I need to work on. Are you still taking your photography course?

Linda said...

Yes, really romantic and of course beautiful pictures :-)

Kathryn Ross said...

Carolyn - Your photos are perfection! You've captured the world I would live in if I could. And those frosted roses in the banner - are they your work, too? Brilliant! Do you enter your pieces in art shows? We have a very active artist's community here - lots of galleries and shows and art societies. You'd show well!

Heaven's Walk said...

I agree with everyone else, Carolyn. You should make a career in photography! You are THAT good! I so loved seeing your beautiful white rose today. It was so cold, windy, and rainy here in MI, that your rose was a breath of summer... :)

I did enjoy them! Beautiful shots. It was a lovely day here too but I find with the sun moving around and getting lower in the sky that I'm not getting the light I need for indoor shots. I like your new header photos too. Beautiful!

Susan said...

Loved the photos, Carolyn. Plus, the roses in the header look they were dipped in sparkling sugar crystals. Great job! Susan

You are very talented with the camera and what a lovely day for photographing!
I especially enjoyed your compositions of the objects. It's not easy to do and make it look as good as yours do!!

Such beautiful portraits of your carefully chosen objects! A beautiful rose color, and that amazing cup. What a wonderful collection you have. With the light and lace it's all just dazzling!

Ruthie Miller said...

Lovely as always. I love the light through the lace or eyelet in the last picture. You are a lucky woman to have such luxurious roses in your very own garden. Thank you for sharing your lovely life.
I also love the teacup at top with the basket weave inside.
