A Flannel Friendsgiving

It was our first time hosting a gathering under the name of Where Roses Bloom, and what a success it was! A Flannel Friendsgiving came together over many, many dedicated hours to painting leaves, handwriting place cards, gathering pine cones, and creating elegant floral arrangements. Oh, and lots and lots of baking.  We are so incredibly happy with how everything turned out, and extremely impressed by the talented cooks we call friends! Who knew?!

We are two very blessed girls who are so thankful for the opportunity to have their friends gather together and enjoy each other’s company during this busy holiday season. Take a look at our pictures as we reminisce on such a beautiful night with a few close Nashville friends.

We hope that you enjoyed your Thanksgiving with those you who are dear to you.

With lots of love,
Rosemary & Bethany Rose

It’s Fall, Y’all!

I can’t believe it’s already fall. It seems that it was just yesterday that we were celebrating the warm weather and long summer nights. Now, the leaves have started to turn and fall, the temperatures have dropped (thank goodness!), and so fall begins.

 

Although tomorrow is officially the first day of the season, it has felt perfect all week here in Nashville. I’ve really enjoyed taking in the cooler air and sipping on pumpkin spice lattes (thanks, Starbucks!).

While a new season begins here in the city, so does a new list of personal goals. There’s a lot that I want to accomplish and experience in the next few months, and I am so excited to see if I can achieve them all!

Do you have big plans for the fall season?

Love always,
Rosemary

The World’s Longest Yardsale

About a month ago I was invited to go on a weekend trip along Highway 127 with friends. Of course, I couldn’t turn this amazing adventure down! We gathered up a few road trip necessities, and headed out on the road early one Saturday morning. It was so incredible to see miles upon miles of yard sales! Within minutes of stopping at the first place, I knew I was hooked for the next 48 hours. I never knew that so many people could come together for a weekend to sell so many unique treasures!

Check out some of the great deals below that I found along Highway 127. I can’t wait to check out next year!

1: $1.50- Small striped green glasses
2: $1.00- Plastic skeleton keys
3: $2.50- Thermos
4: $5.00- Tin canisters
5: $1.00- Embroidered frame
6: $15.00- 2 Pyrex bowls
7: $4.00- Pinocchio + Elvis records

I think my favorite find of the weekend had to be the two Pyrex bowls that I got both for $15! I’d been hoping for some for so long, so it made me so happy to finally find some for my home.

Have you found any incredible finds lately?

Happy thrifting!

DIY: Anchor Tote

I honestly can’t believe that it is almost August! I have had such a wonderful time this summer thrifting, hiking, taking trips, and crafting, but one of my favorite things I have done so far this summer was go on a pretty spontaneous trip to the beach with my friends from back home. With just a few short days to plan, I decided it would be fun to design a tote for transporting all of my favorite things to the beach. There’s not too much needed to create this tote, and it can easily be done in one afternoon.

The supplies that you’ll need to make this no-sew tote are listed above and can be found at your local craft store. I purchased just a half yard of fabric since I knew that the anchor I created would not take too much to make.

The steps to create the tote are pretty simple! 1- You’ll need to flip your fabric over and draw an anchor the size that you’d like it to be on your bag (not pictured). Once you have your anchored design marked, simply cut it out of the fabric.  2- Use fabric glue on the back of your fabric anchor and adhere it to the tote in whatever placement you prefer. Let the glue dry completely– I let it dry for 30 minutes to make sure it was secure. 3- Once the glue has dried, you can now use paint to add designs to your tote. I chose to use a glitter paint around the edge of the anchor to add a little glitz. Don’t forget to let this glue dry for about 15 minutes.

And there you have it! A nautical-themed tote that can carry all that you need for a quick getaway. Hope you all get to fit in a trip to a favorite place full of exciting adventures, there’s plenty out there to be explored!

Love,
Rosemary

Travel Photos: California Dreaming

I recently got back from a trip back to my hometown state, California.  It was incredibly beautiful & looking back at photos I can’t help to feel grateful for my wonderful family.  I spent as much time as I possibly could along the California coastline, soaking in the sunshine (with SPF 90+!) & watching my freckles multiply.  There’s something about the mystery of ocean that makes me stand in awe & truly appreciate this amazing life we’ve all been given.  I hope you enjoy I few snapshots from my adventures!

Btw… I think I love peacocks way too much & still can’t believe I got to hang out with some of these beautiful creatures. Xoxo’s!
