Roses and Pomanders

This is one of the first roses out on my St Swithin bush, a lovely delicate pink with a soft scent.

Dear fellower bloggers and surfers of the net, do you recognise the above paper napkin? I got a couple of these in a napkin swap a while ago and I'm trying to find out where I can buy some. My friend who is getting married absolutely adores it and would love some to use at her wedding reception so if you know where I can get some I would be really grateful if you could drop me a line.

This is one of my favourite pomanders, egg-shaped with a sweet little forget-me-not flower on it.

These three are also favourites, two with Scottish themes with the Trossachs on one and heather on the other, and a lovely pink backgrounded one with flowers including roses.

Talking of roses I couldn't not show you another St Swithin bloom, just so perfect!

And my all time fave, a heart shaped pomander that hangs on my toilet cistern, with a very seventies boy and girl.


  1. I think the pattern is called "Classic Rose Poetry" There is a person on ebay in the UK selling packages of these.
    Hope this helps!

  2. The pink rose is the most perfect pink. Simply beautiful.

  3. Beautiful roses, napkins and pomanders! So pretty. Thanks for commenting on my photos!


  4. My boss is having an `Open Garden` tomorrow and I was wandering around it today, tidying up and weeding here and there when I spotted the most gorgeous pink rose and I asked The Gardener what kind of rose bush it was and he replied `it`s a St Swithin`s` and I said, `my friend Shaz has one of those`!Trust me, you`re in good company!Have a great weekend, Shaz - think of me trying to sell plants in the rain!


A big thank you for taking the time to pop by and comment, I really do appreciate it. Hope to see you at your bloggy home soon!
