beauty is where you find it

beauty is where you find it #02/12
challenge from nic 

(my first attempt at linking up to a challenge
hope it works!)

these pretty roses from my daughter's birthday
such a refreshing mix of colors in this gray January week

the very last bouquet of "fair trade" roses I spied at the market that day 
slightly fading - it didn't matter
she loved them 
i apologized that one poor rose was already drooping
but she smiled and had a kind of  -  let's say - sympathy, understanding, affinity even
and somehow that made it very real &  sweet & full of life
and also made me happy that my daughter at fifteen feels the same way that i do

that perfectly imperfect is beautiful
I love roses right now
 - and always - 
and am sewing new things with rosy fabrics
you will see more soon
(as soon as I find mailing boxes in which these lovelies fit into!!!)
happy sunday!
