My name is Gena. Vintage Rose Studio is an extension of all things that I love and adore, it's about old world things and values, it's about reflecting the beauty around us, it's about feeling at home, it's about good simple food, wine and good music, it's about being comfortable, it's about my absolute unfailing love affair with fabrics and textiles of any kind, it's about being kind to the world, it's about appreciating all the small things around us.
Vintage Rose Studio is about repurposing, reinvinting, recycling, using old things even if they may be weathered, bent, buckled or frayed. Often this may reflect in something handmade using old fabric or an old item of clothing, or taking something old and repurposing it into something useful.
Other times it'll be about reflecting the beauty of the world around us through my eyes and the lens of my faithful camera ... especially the small things that people normally walk past without noticing.
We had autumn rain this weekend, which is really not the norm in the southern hemisphere, our Camellias are also blooming earlier than usual.... couldn't resist a snapshot of this rainsoaked camellia.
