Boy am I ever late for my Yellow Rose Day post for today. Polly at Count Your Blessings and Michelle at Back Through Time had a great challenge today; to have your post filled with yellow roses. It all started because she has this scrumptious yellow rose umbrella that so many of us were coveting that she decided to give it away to the best yellow rose post for today. Of course I jumped at the chance but was a bit nervous as today got closer because I thought "I don't own a thing with yellow roses on it", not that I wouldn't like to or I haven't in the past I just thought I didn't have anything in my possession now.

So I began thinking what would I want, if I could shop for yellow roses? I had visions of a beautiful vintage, Lucille Ball kind of dress. I managed to find Posh Girl Vintage and saw these two cuties........
........and imagine if there really were these shoes to go with them? our feet would smell fresh all day!!

What a nice little yellow rose fantasy and that yellow rose umbrella would look perfect with either of those dresses! ;)

Then I got home and thought I really should take actual pictures of things I had around my home. Thinking I had nothing I felt I was in a pickle committing to doing this challenge and then "A-HA!" I remembered the cute little dish I picked up at a lawn sale, I keep some of my clear jewels in it for my art work......

OK, maybe I do have some yellow rose things. I glance over and had completely forgot about one of my inspirational paintings that I have in my art studio, I adore it and it has many flowers in it, including yellow roses. There's even a bumblebee on one of the flowers, can you see it??

Now I have some confidence! On my way downstairs I realize one of the little framed pictures I have, that I pass everyday has yellow roses in it! (Don't mind the dust on the angel, I think it gives it "flair")

Checking the clock, which happens quite frequently, I say "are those yellow roses?" LOL!! By crikey I think they are!

I even checked out eBay and found this Biscuit jar offered by Winnielynn1

I realized in searching for yellow roses I certainly do not have enough. I think that I am going to make it a point to starting bringing more yellow roses into my life. :)

Thank you Polly and Michelle for the challenge and helping me to see the roses I already have.

FarmHouse Style said...

I think that is the most charming characteristic of yellow roses. They are so unassuming. You don't even realize they are there, they just beckon you to seek them out.
PS. I checked, and the yellow rose dress is already sold:0( Not that I could afford it anyway.

Thank you so much for visiting my little blog. I'm so glad that you liked it. The song Blackbird is by The Beatles. I love to play it because near the end of the song you can hear birds chirping and my cats run through the house, heads bobbing left, right, up and down looking for these elusive birds. It's hilarious.

Love your pictures, btw. And the jar is just gorgeous!



LOVE IT ALL. BUT WOW those dresses !!! I need one of those for sure.
I love how you went hunting for the yellow roses and found them where you never realised they were :)

Happy Yellow Rose Day
