Coming up Roses

A 'rosey' theme today. I thought I'd show you some recent purchases discovered in local op-shops.
The first one is a vintage Royal Doulton plate. I just love the gorgeous cottage roses around the edge.

Oh, and here's another little dish, this one has been hand-painted, there's a signature on the back.
It has a 'shabby chic' feel about it.



And lastly, a bouquet of roses stitched in petit point. (bought for a steal!)
It looks as though it has been washed, - the canvas is slightly out of shape and the red printed border has bled onto the very edge of the cream background. But with some creative framing I might be able to hide that.
I always love to have a browse in op-shops, you never know what treasures you may find.
Cheerio,
