- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Take your needle my child and
work at your pattern it will come out a
rose by and by. Life is like that...one
stitch at a time taken patiently.

Christmas Rose Pointsetta...have you ever?
Each year, my husband & I take one day out and go to the local nursery to take in the beauty of the
season which is Christmas. This year was no exception. It was the perfect day to go, cold, dark and just a slight random snowflake. There is every color imaginable with the Pointsetta, some have sparkles, blue,purple,yellow...for some not for me..I am traditional and like the red ones...I hadn't planned on buying one this year, as I have a cutting from 2 Christmases ago which now needs potted, until I saw this one.
Christmas Rose it is called. The picture doesn't do it justice, and it looks more pink, but it is in the traditional red of Christmas. There is a support which is around these beauties, as I imagine they are top heavy..The leaves are also pretty in their own rite.
Click on the picture, to see if you can catch how pretty this is.
