The second word is DECORATE, (click for dictionary) - which construed all sorts of ideas in the mind, from the typical - to decorate a room or a space, to nature's own decoration (autumn leaves, spring blooms, raindrops etc. etc. etc.), to human embellishment. I had planned to use totally different pictures (my first instinct on the word), but time did not allow for me to go and capture them, so I decided to opt for a different approach.
Picture 1 (above) is how man's decoration (paintwork) has turned into nature's decoration over the years - how time and the elements have added their own character, texture and colour. I love how the colours have faded here and there and seem to be "running down the building" ... It is also about wonderful architectural detail - the arches, the balustrades, the woodwork on the doors and windows, etc. - all of which are, of course a form of "decoration".
Picture 2 is about whimsical and creative decoration - an old zinc bath which has been upturned and used to paint fun, inspirational words on it - perfect decoration for the garden. And yes, creativity is about having fun!!
Vintage Rose is an extension of all things that I love and adore, it's about appreciating things old and worn, it's about feeling at home, simple food, wine, good music and friends, it's about comfort and my unfailing love of fabrics and textiles of any kind. It's also about recycling, repurposing, re-inventing, re-using, revamping, and appreciating the small things around us.
