Pretty Roses and Neat Panorama View ...

How can i resist showing you guys these voluptuous, tender, little  pink roses from my yard... 

I know it's corny and hokey and all that
 but i think i'm gonna name my house

"Rosebud Cottage"

because there are roses everywhere right now!

"abraham darby"

Sometimes i just look at all this gorgeousness, and can't believe it's in my very own yard

"Abraham Darby"

I've missed alot of your posts lately, it's been really busy everywhere in life right now, i plan to catch up on you guys soon....

Sweet "Pearly Gates"  again

Little view of the rose arbor in the daytime...

"New Dawn"
a sturdy prolific little climber

"Rosebud Cottage" with the last light of the sun glowing on the pink front door

Ok.... thanks to a person younger than me, 
(which is just about everyone now) 
who knows about iphone apps like she was genetically engineered with a computer chip app in her brain
I learned about a cool app for your iphone that does panaroma views...
check it out

 living room shot without panorama

ok, now with panorama
and a little touch of mr. fractured's gray hair on the left
i haven't quite mastered it all yet

the app is called "Photosynth"
i think it costs like a dollar
and you just move the camera around the room and it snaps photos as needed to create the panaroma

and next to last for this post
here is another pretty picture,  just for fun...

i love this little thrift store lace blousy thing, so i drape it all over everything and take pictures of it
the blouse is on an old green velvet sofa from the thrift store
with some lace also from the thrift store...
thrift store, thrift store, thrift store
did i just say thrift store like 50 times?!

anyway, it's all from the guess what ?

and last, but most certainly not least, 
i'll leave you with this sign posted on the window at my favorite little country convenience store where i go and buy my Bud Light...
is it just me... or is this funny

i love country stores

...the end...


  1. I love, love your roses!! I'm going to have to check out that panoramic app. I, too, use my iPhone for almost all the pictures I take...and I like it that way. :)

  2. Hey beautiful! :)
    I just love your front door...I know I've said it before, but I do!
    Your roses are lovely and I think Rosebud Cottage is the perfect name for your house. My mom named her house Thimble Cottage, because she sews and her house is def a pink, sweet and cottagey! (is that a word?) :)
    I don't have that app, and I'm def going to get it! I love that!
    The sign is precious at the little store. :)
    Hope you're having a wonderful week!

  3. Yes, the sign is funny! And that is one cool app. But I LOVE your roses!! Busy times!

  4. Hi Cindy,
    Your roses are so beautiful! I love the night photo, and i sure love your arbor.Your home is so adorable.


  5. Cindy, LOVE the sign! LOL And your photos are ALL AMAZING!! Just beautiful!

    I am working on my frame still so HOPEFULLY I can reveal it with your gorgeous painting!! I had to have some yucky dental work done so I have been a bit preoccupied and unable to focus! I am better now and ready to get with it!!

    Hope you are having a great Monday!!

  6. Your cottage looks like what I picture when I dream about having one some day! Simply beautiful!

  7. Your cottage looks like the place I dream about having one day! Simply Beautiful! The roses are stunning....


  8. Cindy,
    I love that sign.It reminds me of the sign in the movie "Fast times at ridgemont high".It said "No shoes,No shirt,no dice"
    Anyway love your garden.I think you should name your house rose cottage.I know you could paint a gorgeous sign and hang it over your arbor.Your home is beautiful too.

  9. oh, I think thats a perfert name for your beautiful cottage!!!!

  10. Love the sign! They're really not kidding about bad language. Oh, and pets. Your rose framed door is lovely and you should call your cottage whatever the @#&* you want. Don't tell them at the store I said that! ~ Maureen

  11. I love everytime I see you have a new post! I think your roses are gorgeous..and your home is so so pretty! I love the outside pictures. I want to paint my house white with a pink door.:) The new app you have is great--I will have to tell my daughter about it. I am so in love with that rose painting you did. I think it looks awesome in your house. The sign at the grocery store is funny...I am not sure I know the difference between profanity, cussing , and swearing. :) I hope you have a lovely week!

  12. Absolutely beautiful roses!! I love roses~ so pretty and they smell so good!!! Awesome on the iphone app!! Will have to check it out! :)

  13. Ahhh, Cindy, your cottage looks so lovely with the roses. I wish I could have roses in my garden but the deer like to eat them and they do!
    Love the store sign...too funny.


  14. They are all beautiful roses Cindy! Rosebud Cottage would be perfect!!

  15. I forgot to tell you I love the twinkle/fairy lights around your front door. I did a post today about them today. It would have been fun to include a photo of your front door!!!

  16. Love the name Rosebud cottage, and looking at your photos it's a perfect fit.
    And your new app for your camera is awesome, and only a $1.00! doesn't get any better than that. The pictures are wonderful in panaoramic view. Your reference to Bud Lite is cool too. A beer DH and I both enjoy here in WI. See you on Pinterest..

  17. pretty, pretty roses!! "new dawn" is my favey fave, as you can tell from my post. o.k. that app thingy is amazing, i have NO IDEA how to use one! ug, i guess i need a youngin to show me how! so, i got my hands on the new "Romantic Prairie Style" and LOVED seeing you on page 116!! you are sooo cute sitting there in your studio with those darling boots and that sassy hat! and your sweet mommy and baby lamb painting featured on page 85 is lovely. really fun to see you in the mag, sweets! congratulations!

  18. I think you have to drop the f bomb in the store and see if they really have a strict policy~...just kiddin'!! Love those Abraham DArby roses...I think they are my favorites, and the Cecille Brunner one, its amazing too! I planted White Dawn climber, I wanted Eden Dawn, but they didn't have it...and I don't have my arbor yet, and may not get one this year, so when it starts scrambling out tall and long I hope to train it along the rock don't have to make excuses to me about being busy....I understand.

  19. Cindy your roses are so beautiful!!! And I love getting to see into your amazing home any time I can. I just love it.
    hugs from here...

  20. O My Goodness!!!!!!!! Love the roses, so Beautiful, love the view, and your home.. so Beautiful, everything!!!!!!!

  21. Cindy don't you just love Pandora. I'm a little slow when it comes to the newest thing, my kids have been listening to Pandora forever and I finally asked what it was! Now thats all I listen to while painting. My favorite is a station I made by typing in Bon will like it! Another is Rachel Portman because I love romantic soundtrack music. Your roses are beautiful!!! Mine are not blooming as profusely as yours yet. My favorite photo is the view of your living room of your wee fireplace and rose painting and opened front pink door! And you are not silly to name your home Rosebud Cottage. Mine is named Sea Cottage. My last home was named Rose Cottage but I did not blog then. I like Rosebud better. I always called my daughter Holly rosebud when she was little. Can't wait to see your dreamy outdoor bed. Isn't it fun!!! ox Kerrie

  22. Oh yes...did I tell you yet? You were my favorite part about the new Romantic Prairie magazine! Yes, you favorite. Not just because I know you either. I agree with everything Erin says. ox

  23. Oh my! All those beautiful roses in bloom... I love the name Rosebud Cottage. I hope you will be picking lots of your roses and drying them.
    What's this about Romantic Prairie Magazine? Did I miss something while I was away?
    Hugs Rosemary...xo

  24. Hi Cindy at Rosebud Cottage!
    I love that!! The roses are gorgeous!! I love how your front door matches New Dawn, you have the eye! The phone ap is sooo fun!

  25. I'm so glad you like where I put your just makes me smile from ear to ear every time I look at it. :)
    Oh and as for a frame...I'm keeping an eye out for the perfect chippy white one. I love it the way it is too, so who knows I may just leave it alone. Either way, it's my most favorite piece of artwork in my house!
    Love you dearly my friend!

  26. Your roses are beautiful. I need to plant some. Soon. Before 2013.
    Gotta get that app....sometimes I feel like technology is passing me right on by.

  27. The outside of your home is just as pretty as the inside!!! LOVE, love, love all the pink and white everywhere!!!! Even your flowers are pink and white!
    Too cool.
    Happy Mom's Day, Cindy @ Rosebud Cottage.

  28. Rosebud Cottage is so pretty, as are the roses in your garden. Just beautiful!

  29. Okay, first, I am completely 100% jealous of your gorgeous roses! And second, I am going to have to get that app - looks like so much fun. And third - that sign cracks me up too!

  30. Your home is lovely and your roses are AMAZING! I'm envious as our weather is just starting to warm up so my garden is still not in full bloom.

    Your blog is so pretty and I am your newest follower!

    Happy Mothers's Day!
