Diary of a Rose Lover

Classic, graceful, timeless.
Roses are our iconic symbols of feminine beauty and everlasting love.




My "Diary of a Rose Lover" series of booklets are the perfect journals to sketch your ideas, preserve special memories, and record your sweet sentiments.


{This pretty one was sold to Sherry ~ thank you! The Romantic Red and Pink Passion booklets are still available in my Etsy shop.}


With roses blooming on the covers of these one~of~a~kind hand made booklets, they are gorgeous books to use for a wedding or bridal shower, a baby’s memory book, and of course delightful gifts for a wedding anniversary or Mother's Day.




Each booklet contains twenty four pages of 50 pound acid free sketch paper and ten sheets of transparent tracing paper. The book covers are giclee prints on 120 pound watercolour paper printed from my original colour photographs.

{This is not scrap book paper or clip art.}




On each of the inside front covers which are also printed with roses, there are hand cut scalloped edge pockets made from 80 pound textured card stock which are embellished with vintage millinery and paper flowers. Within each pocket is a giclee print bookmark tied with ribbons. The books are charmingly hand bound with grosgrain ribbon and tied with a floppy bows.





A colophon describing in detail how each book is made is included in the back of each book and is signed and numbered by me.





For a little more inspiration, you may bring the sweet romance of roses to your home or office with these mousepads I have now available in my Zazzle gallery. {I think that these would be fabulous bridal shower party favors ~ just an idea to think about...}


How beautiful to have a garden of roses at your fingertips!


A bouquet of fresh flowers daily and no water necessary!


Compliment these mousepads with some pretty decorative magnets for your memo or inspiration boards at your desk.




...and when you are finished with your work, linger in the garden and enliven your senses by slipping on a pair of these canvas Ked's adorned with my favorite blush pink roses.


Thank you all for stopping by and taking a moment to indulge and savor my roses.



Ciao amici,

Suzanne
