Wedding Flowers And My Favourite Quote ..

Hello my dear friends,

my posts about the wedding are not going to be in order as things happened but just more mixed up sort of as I go thing ... if that makes any sense?!
Therefore today I would like to share some photos I took of the flowers that were some of my daughters centrepieces after they came home from the wedding. For almost two weeks they stood in my kitchen window and every time I did my dishes or looked out of the window I was surrounded by their beauty.

Even as the last roses slowly faded ...
... their beauty is still something that captures me.

I wanted to do something little to remember my daughters special day so I am pressing some of the flowers for a future creation for her and her husband. But that wasn't enough for me. I wanted to do something else little and I am sure you all remember my favourite quote, because I must have told you it many times already over the past years.

The quote is ...
' Memories is the power to grow roses in winter.'
I thought a nice way to remember how special my daughters wedding was and how many new memories are going to be made is by designing a new blog button and place it on Todolwen.
I used my favourite photo that I took of one of her roses from the wedding flowers and turned it into this!
Now every time I look at this ... 
... I will remember how beautiful she looked and what a lovely day it was.
Thank you for stopping by and visiting me here at Todolwen ~ it is always so nice when you do so.
I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.
Have a peaceful and creative day,
Karen B.
