Thank you!

We woke up this morning to find a beautiful surprise... 12 000 friends on our Miss Rose Sister Violet facebook page!!

It truly is so touching and heart warming to have such a wonderful following of like-minded souls. It is not the numbers which impress on our hearts... but the incredible experience of sharing life with such beautiful people. Every day we find happiness on our facebook page... the comments, the ideas shared, the happiness, the love, the encouragement, the sense of community... and it warms our hearts.

THANK YOU. To all who share our daily journey with us.
We love you all.

Love Rose and Violet xxxxxx

Miss Rose Sister Violet in the Land of Oz...

The Wizard of Oz has a treasured place in the heart of Miss Rose Sister Violet. The Yellow Brick Road... The Emerald City... the Tin Man and Scarecrow and Lion... Glinda the Good Witch of the North... darling Toto and of course Dorothy... friends from our childhood and from a world painted with a rainbow.

Such magic... such fantastical charm... such a world where one can dream and believe that all is possible. Long hours we spent there, carried away by dreamy music and soft blurred colours... and magic which allowed us to believe that sparkly red shoes could truly carry us away to wherever our heart desired...

And what magical words... and ideas... and dreams. Here are some of our very favourite words from the brilliant mind behind The Wizard of Oz.... L. Frank Baum. Oh how we love the land of Oz and this movie from our childhood! How we loved our adventures through the Land of Oz... and our journey with Dorothy as she helped the Tin Man find a heart... the Scarecrow find a brain... the Lion find his courage... and the knowledge that home truly is where the heart is..

Winter bouquets of velvet flowers...

It's been wintry and grey this week... misty mornings and blustery afternoons. Real Winnie the Pooh weather... perfect for drinking cups of tea, eating toast with butter and honey, and wearing socks on your hands as well as your feet to keep warm! It's been too cold and wet to venture into the garden.. so we've been playing with our darling velvet flowers indoors... creating little bouquets with soft velvet bows... and sprinkles of lace... while loving the sound of the wind against the windows and day dreaming of tea parties in Spring!

A feast for the eyes....

Miss Rose Sister Violet now have a living, breathing inspiration board.... on Pinterest!

We have started our pinterest page and have fallen in love with our new home! We have such a growing collection of photos we take, and photos we find... and it's so exciting to have a cosy little home for them all to live in. We love sharing all we do and find, and think Pinterest is a great site to share such creative inspiration. We hope you enjoy our new adventure... and join us as we grow our collection and pin to our heart's content!

tea cups and tea parties....

We've just finished some more of our pretty floral doily bunting. It's a favourite of ours and is now happily back in our children's section at our online shop... Miss Rose Sister Violet online Store!

It's so grey and cold here... and today the rain is lashing at the windows and the wind is howling around the house... but our pretty bunting brings day dreams of tea parties in the garden with cups of tea and cup cakes... and the smell of blossom in the air... Spring is just around the corner!

Happy wishes to everyone on this grey wintry day...
Love Rose & Violet

Forget-me-nots... and sweet gift wrapping...

This week we've fallen in love all over again with our darling vintage velvet forget-me-not posies...

We've added them to our online store... Miss Rose Sister Violet online Shop..... and just think they're the sweetest. We had to wrap a present for a friend this week... and decided to use our blue forget-me-nots with a touch of glitter! We painted the little centers with clear-drying glue, and then dipped them into delicious sparkly glitter. For something really special (as our friend is truly special to us and an angel in our lives)... we also made a little sparkly posy by gluing diamantes into the center of each flower. (we think we'll repeat this time and time again though... as everyone deserves extra diamantes in their world!!)

We love adding flowers to presents...

We hope you enjoy our little gift wrapping!

Soft and dreamy... and delicious calligraphy...

We've been playing with some of our favourite trims and darling products.. and some treasured wedding certificates we found at a flea market in Paris... together we think they create a picture of soft dreaminess....
