'Raindrops And Roses' ..

Hello my dear friends,

I don't know what it is with me giving my creations names, I think it just makes them a little more personal.

At times I am not even sure how I find the names for them. With the creation I am sharing with you today, I was singing 'Raindrops and Roses' from the movie 'The Sound of Music' in my head and editing photographs for this post. The neat thing about the name is, that these are some of the photographs I was working on  ...

... they are some roses from my little old rosebush.
They were decorated with many little raindrops from the early morning and looking so beautiful.

And this is one of my newest creations that I am so happy to share with you today ...

 ... 'Raindrops And Roses'.

It is another tarnished sewing stand with a pale rose colored and velvet pincushion that has been embellished with some lovely shaded seam binding and a very pretty old broach. I personally think, the name I gave it suits is somehow very well.

I hope you have enjoyed my newest creation as much as I have enjoyed creating and sharing it.

Thank you all for being so kind to me with all your sweet comments and for being my followers.
Without you Todolwen would not be what it is ~ a very special place that means so much to me.
Thank you for that!

I hope you are well my dear friends and life is treating you kind.

Have a peaceful and creative day.
