Cecile Brunner Roses and Pink Doily

My Cecile Brunner Rose bush is in full bloom right now. The roses are small but very fragrant. I was inspired to create a little vignette on my night stand.

The pink doily is not new, I did share it with you in a post last year (you can see that post here). The pattern for this doily is from 1951, and it’s available free here.

As I said the roses are very fragrant and it feels so luxurious to wake up in the morning in a room filled with their sweet aroma.

Another gorgeous bush has started to bloom in my yard, which inspired me to start a new crochet project. But that’s a secret for now!

Thank you everyone who left comments on my previous post. I appreciate your kind and encouraging words.

  1. Hi Olga,
    Oh Lucky You!! Your Cecile's are gorgeous and must smell wonderful (take a big whiff for me!). What a gorgeous photo in the little creamers with the perfectly matching pink doily, a sure way for a good morning!! Love the garden shot too!! Enjoy!

  2. These are the prettiest pictures of your beautiful roses with that sweet pink doily! Looks like you are having a beautiful spring!

  3. Your roses are beautiful such a lovely delicate pink. :)

  4. Wow, those climbing roses are so pretty and there are so many blooms! I just love roses. And I'm a sucker for pink doilies too...or anything pink really. I can smell your roses from here!

  5. You must have a green thumb Olga because your garden looks beautiful. I'm so jealous. I can barely keep houseplants alive. I would bring them in too to enjoy all day long. :)

  6. Beautiful roses, pictures and doily !!!
    Have a nice weekend !!!

  7. So much pretty pink! I've been surrounded by pink lately, too. =) No flowers to speak of yet, but they'll be coming eventually. Have a great weekend!

  8. What a happy little rose - absolute delight and will really life anyone's spirits. I say get a garden chair, a sunhat and sit where you have a perfect view of the beautiful rosebush . . . you may crochet while you gaze!

    Very intrigued about your new project - enjoy the weekend.

    1. Thank you, yes I do that, and I also like having my morning coffee next to my rosebush. I used to think that for happiness I need grand things in life, but now I know that happinesses and joy can be found in lots of things that I'm surrounded with.

  9. I envy you your roses. I live on top of what is virtually an anthill. Every rose I have planted has been chewed off at the roots. That rose of yours is just so pretty.

  10. Very pretty doily!! And I love those roses in your garden:)

  11. What beautiful roses. It is such a lovely thing when the garden is in bloom. Oh and I love that doily! Looks like a pineapple pattern? I have a soft spot for the pineapple! Have a nice week. Anna

  12. Just amazingly beautiful roses and your arrangements are so sweet. Perfect with your pretty pink doily :)

  13. Wonderful post with doily and rose flower photos!
