White Paper Roses

This past weekend my Mom came for a visit. She was admiring the paper flower bouquet in my bedroom and asked where I got them. I told her that she had given them to me awhile back. 
However, when she gave them to me they were all in disarray and didn't look very pretty. She had found them at a yard sale and had forgotten all about them. Then she said maybe she should have kept them for  herself!
Sorry Mom, I think I am going to keep them! 
They just look too pretty and vintagey now!

I think that's what I love about yard sales and thrifting so much.... finding things that don't always look so nice at first, but then fixing them up and having something that adds an extra special touch to your home!

I'm joining White Wednesday at Faded Charm!

These roses are glorious! They tease out a stop and smell the roses moment – well more like a -- look and drink in their beauty moment really. Thank you for such beauty!
