Is there anyone who doesn't love roses these wonderful creatures of nature? I bet there isn't...hope your week is going smoothly darlings.

LOVELY FACTS ABOUT ROSES:

- Shakespeare referred to roses over fifty times in his works.
- Ancient Romans believed that white roses grew where the tears of Venus fell when she was mourning Adonis.
- Mythology says that roses grew thorns when Cupid accidentally shot an arrow into a rose garden.
- The largest rose ever bred was a pink rose measuring approximately 33 inches in diameter.
- The world's oldest living rose is believed to be 1,000 years old and it grows on the wall of the Cathedral of Hildesheim in Germany.

...which I wish was mine. Sandra Foster turned a Catskills hunting cabin into the romantic Victorian cottage she had always wanted. She renovated the 9-by-14-foot cottage, an old hunting cabin, herself. The cost of renovating and furnishing was $3,000. Many of the furnishings were flea market finds...sighs...loving every little detail.

July is here with its beauty and warmness and I'm so happy for it. Interesting facts about July: did you know that in 1848 July 19th was the first woman's rights convention in the United States? And all these inspirational ladies were born in this beautiful month: Estee Lauder, Princess Diana, Gina Lollobrigida, Ginger Rogers, Natalie Wood, Amelia Earhart. Thanks for the visits this week and have a great weekend my dears. Happy 4th of July to my American readers.
