Forget me Not

This week is a special week as it is the build up to the wonderful Royal Wedding of HRH William & Kate Middleton.
I am really so excited to see how beautiful this gorgeous, happy and fresh faced young woman is going to look.
I truly believe that these two are going to have a loving happy life together as they both look so happy and in love.
A week to not forget, what better native little flower out at the moment to enjoy than the beautiful little Forget me Not.
I just adore this little flower which is so very delicate yet so vibrant and striking in its swathes of blue.
I even have a pink Forget me Not in the garden at the moment which is equally so very lovely.
A gorgeous little flower to brighten up any garden or bridal bouquet.
Here's to a week to remember, a Forget me Not week in the making.

Pure Weddng Magazine Feature

Sweet Days and Roses was so delighted to be asked to style some gorgeous Diamond Jewellery for a top Jewellers & Pure Weddings Magazine, and all set withing a gorgeous Vintage Theme.
I knew instantly the look I wanted to create, soft muted colours, beautiful trinkets, vintage china, gorgeous flowers and pretty cupcakes.
The photographer was the amazing Matthew Stansfield who's work is simply wonderful.
I was lucky enough to choose all of the gorgeous pieces for the shoot, and as Diamonds are a Girls Best Friend, I found some gorgeous jewels.
Here are some images from the magazine taken by Matthew, and a few pretty images taken by myself.
Matthew is soon to send over to me some more images from the lovely day, but until then this will give you an idea of how fabulous the day was.

Antique Rose Swag Fire Surround

I have to share with you all this beautiful Fire Surround that I bought a while ago and which was in need of some loving TLC.
I just fell in love with it straight away... I adore the Rose Swag on the front and knew that I could give it a little bit of Janey love to bring it back to being a beauty once more.
Sadly I do not have a fire place that suits this gorgeous antique and therefore I am selling it.
I so hope I find it the loving home it deserves.
A gorgeous piece and so very elegant.
I thought I would share with you some before and after pictures of this gorgeous vintage fire surround.

♡ Beautiful Mothers Day ♡

Only One

Hundreds of stars in the pretty sky,
Hundreds of shells on the shore together,
Hundreds of birds that go singing by,
Hundreds of birds in the sunny weather.

Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn,
Hundreds of  bees in the purple clover,
Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn,
But only one Mother the wide world over.

George Cooper (1840-1927)

Beautiful Spring

I just love this time of year, when the cold grey days of Winter pass and are replaced with the most beautiful colours and delicate flowers.
The gorgeous colours of Spring are a welcome sight.
I just love the vivid colours of blues, mauve's, yellows and dusky pinks.
As you can also see from one of the images below, our gorgeous little cat River is also partial to their beauty !
These gorgeous blues and mauve's are just wonderful, and make a gorgeous combination teamed up with old terracotta pots & vintage tin buckets.
Spring has just begun and long may this beautiful season continue.
