I sell what I create on etsy and my website, someplaceinthyme. If you have questions,please email me at cpeterson72@q.com. I welcome new blog friends and am honored if you find my little piece of heaven interesting enough to follow.

Pink Roses On Black Pillow

I don't know what it is, but I love the combination of pink and black together. I also love making roll pillows......so this was a fit for me, made in heaven you might say. I wasn't sure what to do with the sweet ruffles on the end. I thought about eyelet lace, but really did not want that much white, soooooo I decided on a plain black. I think it looks perfect.
I could have called it finished and let it go. As you can see, I didn't do that, but added lots of blooms to both ends. Some roses are silk, some are paper, one is handmade, and there are others flowers to add some texture. Beadwork too, you just have to have some beadwork for movement. I also like to use ribbon, I think it gives a certain softness.

Each end has a bouquet of pink roses.......yep, it's that pink and black thing that I just love so much.
This and more can be found on my website, someplace in thyme. Do you have a favorite color combination?

Hi Char, I had a black dress with pink roses on it. Your pattern made me think about that dress. Your pillow is so pretty and I love your cactus in bloom in your previous post. My nephew lives out in Arizona and he has been landscaping his back yard. He built him a fire place for one thing so they could make smores when it was a cool enough evening. Funny how they never out grow those things. Have a wonderful weekend

Oh WOW....this is beautiful Char!

Right now I am in the burlap and cream phase which is a wee bit odd because I love color.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,

I think pink roses on a black background is stunning. It doesn't go with my current decorating style, but I still love it.
