Yesterday, the children
picked a bunch of
pink & white roses
fresh from our garden.
Wishing we all had scent buttons on our computers
I would have loved sharing the fragrance

The girls made some 'perfume' using
15 drops sweet almond-oil &
5 drops lavender-oil

We are still enjoying the white bowl
filled with pink, love this shade of pink,
roses leaves.

I hope you are all having a rosy week so far.

  32. Ohhh....wat zal dat heerlijk ruiken bij jullie. Prachtig zo'n schaal met rozenblaadjes en wat heb je er weer prachtige plaatjes van gemaakt met de schaaltjes in het gras en een jaloersmakende blauwe lucht hihi. Hier is het nu somber en bewolkt, dus geniet ik hier extra van.
    Fijne dag en een lieve groet, Mea

  35. Hello Saskia!
    Your roses are lovely. You are right, there should be a scent button on the computer. It would be amazing to smell the "perfume" the girls made :)
    I hope you are having a ROSEY day!

  36. Goodness, I have enjoyed looking through your blog. It is gorgeous! The roses on this post are beautiful and I, too, wish our computers had the capability of transmitting fragrances! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving some kind words!

  39. Ahhh, I have no roses here but I smelled some on the desk of a woman in an office I went to yesterday. They were her birthday roses which made them all that much more sweet I think. My mother's favorite flower is the rose.

  40. Hi Saskia!
    Really cute pics...♥
    Have a great day!
    xoxo alice

  41. This is so sweet! When I was little, I tried making perfume. I don't think it turned out. lol! But, this sounds like it would smell nice. Lovely photos!

  42. I don´t have a rosy week, but it´s pink, though =).
    Pink from the flowers of the apple tree =).
    Flowers are wonderful!!!
    And your images are beautiful!
    I love roses, and wish we had them in our garden allready...

    Have a wonderful evening, gorgeous.

  43. Hi Saskia...what a lovely post! Yes, I wish we could smell the roses too by pressing the buttons on our computers! Ixx

  44. Clever girls! Your roses are faboulous and you photos in a sunny day are great!

  45. Hallo Saskia.
    Leuk idee. Rose rozenblaadjes in porselein, dit geeft lieflijke plaatjes.
    Groetjes Marga

  46. Oh your girls are so sweet!! What beautiful roses and your garden is just breathtaking Saskia! Hope you are having a wonderful week. Hugs ~ Tina xx

  47. Your girls are so sweet Saskia!...These petals are so pretty, I can just imagine how yummy they must smell! xo

  48. Heerlijke romantische plaatjes. Rozen zijn zo mooi! Ik kan me nog herrineren dat ikzelf met flesjes liep, met daarin rozeblaadjes. Een meisjes droom om parfum te maken haha...volgens mij ben ik niet verder gekomen als een drapje;-)

    Ik heb even genoten van dit moois.

    Lieve groetjes, Helena
