Dried Roses for a Blue Lady

Okay so I stole the line from a song which really is "Red Roses for a Blue Lady" but my "Dried" Roses apply better for my title!

While purging my stock of deco items I sat staring at this pretty vase with dried roses that I was considering letting go.  I talked myself out of it and decided to try it over on my little round entry table.

Several years ago I found this at a cute little shop in town and it came with the dried roses.   I had it in the bedroom for a long time but it lost it's space when we re-did the room last year as seen "here".

She's an antique with some chips but I loved it the moment I saw it so home she came with me.

I also found this lace table topper while purging as I went through a drawer full of table runners and toppers a couple of weeks ago.   I decided to place it on top of the burlap covered table and it immediately changed the tone of the table. This vase full of dried roses seemed like a perfect romantic look to go with it.   Since Valentine's Day is approaching I figured why not add a touch of romance!

So there you have it- my Red Dried Roses for a Blue Lady!

If you don't know this song you can click on this and listen to it.  There are lots of versions of it on YouTube.

    Gorgeous dried roses, dear blue Lady!!!
    I adore the little chippy vase and your table top vignette!!!
    Those dried roses certainly made me smile!!!
    Think they did the "trick"!!!
    P.S. I love the change in your font!!!
    Reader friendly for challenged eyesight!!! (wink!)

  4. What an enchanting post. The dried roses look like a still life. I love the colors they have gone to. I am also purging and it is a good thing. I enjoy you blog so very much.

  5. Hi Liz, just gorgeous!! Love your dried roses and the song goes perfectly.I adore your lace topper on the table. So pretty. This vignette is beautiful.
    Have a nice weekend. xo

  6. Your vase is so sweet Liz and I love the contrast of the lace with your burlap tablecloth. That's how I purge, setting something aside to donate, then deciding to keep it :)

  7. I haven't listened to Paul Anka for a long time. I think you whole entry is quite lovely.

  8. The dired roses are so pretty! The lace is so pretty too!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  9. Love them Liz....I have been drying my favorite colors of roses lately....Yours have dried so beautifully!

  10. Hi Liz, barely had time to drop by. Your vignette is so pretty. The lave topper is lovely and I still adore the candle holders. Paul Anka was one of my favorites.

  11. Liz, I like your way of moving things to a new spot, especially something that steals your heart.
    Haven't heard that song in a very long time. Thanks for the link. '-)

  12. love your vase. And your white candlesticks. And...I remember that song too. sheila

  13. What a lovely vignette. Love the vase, Liz. There is something about dried roses that makes them hard to toss, not sure just what it is though.
    Have a wonderful week.

  14. Looks great, Liz - and you are SO right about the lace topper - it makes that table look so different. (And so perfect for Valentine's Day!)

    Well done! have a wonderful week! Hugs!

  15. I did this once after I got so many flowers from the birth of my daughter and loved it!
