Valentine's Rosebud Initials



Here are my Valentines Rosebud Ornaments. I've shaped them into our initials.

G for Guy


S for Sarah


And, of course, a heart.


Sarah loves Guy.


Or Guy loves Sarah.


Depending on how the mood takes me.

;-)

The letters were actually easier to make than in yesterday's post. There was no twisting of the wire to be done.  Just gently bending the end back around the last rosebud.


*************************************
One more day to go to my English Garden Party. Eeeeee!

Come on over tomorrow (Wednesday morning GMT) to link up.

There will be a bath available for anyone who gets over-excited by all the scrumptiousness available to drool over.....


{Can you imagine? A bath in the garden?}

Sarah, so so so adorable!!! You must post at the same time that I sit down for my morning cup of coffee after getting kids to school and cleaning the kitchen. You must think I am your stalker, Maybe I am :-)

Melanie said...

Pretty pretty!
..a bath in the garden? Even in summer here it is usually too cold! Brrrrr! We are talking the UK here are we? ;-)

Brandi said...

Very Creative Sarah! Oh the possibilities... I love them!

Olive Cooper said...

Love these Sarah. I have an old claw foot tub in the yard at the old house I really must plant flowers in some day.

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

Those rose bud initials and heart are gorgeous. Love your blog. Came over from High Street Cottage.

Noas' Libellule said...

Just found your blog, not a big fan of Valentine's day myself but if that means I can make all the gorgeous things you have posted, bring it on! Must admit not taken by the idea of a bath outside at this time of the year...

rachelsjunkinthetrunk said...

Very pretty!Thank you for sharing and the play by play instructions! I like easy!;)The photo's are lovely!

Courtney ~ French Country Cottage said...

Just darling Sarah~ I love it. So sweet! :)

michelle said...

Those are adorable my friend!! I love them and I love that bath! Oh that would be wonderful!!!!! Can't wait to for your party!!

Edith Hope said...

Dear Sarah, How lovely your rosebud garlands look....so much more stylish and elegant than so many of the really rather nasty Valentine gifts that I have chanced to see in so many shop windows. And where are they to be hung?

MariCrea said...

Wow Sarah is a great idea to make garlands of rosebuds with the initials!
I could use them either ...
Mari loves Mauro ... M and M. ..
Hugs
Mari

LindyLouMac said...

Oh you are so clever, I just read the post about making these with the rosebuds from e-bay.
I hope your husband appreciates this romantic gesture.

American in Bath said...

Baths in the garden. Brilliant.

Bella @Bellgetsreal said...

I would love a bath in the garden if it was surrounded by tall breezy grasses. Sigh.

Meera @ firstsense said...

Sarah, you are a good old-fashioned romantic, I love that!! So sweet!

That bath is dreamy, it's got me imagining myself in a hot climate and of course, that there would be my private land surrounded by trees.

Meera xx

Blessedmom's Simple Home said...

It looks wonderful Sarah. I'm off to do school with my kids but I just had to get online to see what you created. Beautiful!!!
Blessings,
Marcia

Katherine ( Katie) Corrigan said...

oh so lovely!

Michelle @Shellsshabbyshack said...

Very cute! These are great for Spring too.

I'd love to take a bath in garden right about now. It's snowing like crazy today!

Take care, "S" is for Sarah and sweet!

xo,
Michelle

Courtenay@Signal Hill Interiors said...

Eeeeeee! The party is tomorrow! Can't wait!

Carla Marie said...

Love it! It is very cute and Valentine's themed without screaming Valentine's decor in a cheesy way. Did that make sense? Maybe not, but I love it!

At The Picket Fence said...

That was so not what was I expected! I should have known you wouldn't do any simple little wreath with those rosebuds. What a darling idea! And, ummmm...bath in a garden? Just as long as its way out in the middle of nowhere! :-)
Thanks for your sweet comment on the post today friend, you made my day!

Cindy said...

Hello dearest Sarah,
I have not been on the computer much this week, I am just SO tired. And therefore I am feeling blogged out...a new expression, I made it up!;o)
I adore your gorgeous rosebud heart and initials, they are very sweet. I will be by for your party tomorrow, though, I will show my garden last summer and what it looks like now. I hope that is okay, it's got two feet of snow on it now...no indoor flowers or plants.
And I have not been working on my sweater, I need some cashola and a trip to the fabric store first.
Thanks for checking up on me.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Holly said...

Your rosebuds are so cute, and perfectly Valentine-y!
I'm going to try to join your party tomorrow. I don't technically have flower gardens at this house, but I think I can come up with some older photos.

Hi I just popped over from Blessedmon's. I love your style. Exactly the look we are after in our renovation too. Feel free to drop by and check us out too (oh I also prefer posting to lurking :)

Joyce - Quilted Nest said...

I think a bath in a 'secluded' garden sounds heavenly - but not in this weather. Brrr!

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh how beautiful! I am visiting via the Valentine linky.
I wanted to invite you to the two linky parties I am planning. The first will be on February 23~ High Tea Tablescapes. Details can be found on my Wednesday posts. There will be PRIZES!

Lastiques said...

I LOVE it! I'm working on a large burlap covered wood (empty) frame to hang above our bed and had planned to put 2 hanging quilt hearts inside the frame but I think this is now the plan. Absolutely LOVE the idea - oh mine will be an "S" for Sarah too. :-)
