A rose in an old Ball canning jar

We got beautiful orange roses in church Sunday for Mother's Day.   Last year, we received orange roses, but they were a different variety....amazing texture.  I stuck mine in a vintage Ball canning jar for the photographs and then applied some of Kim Klassen's textures for Texture Tuesday.

Cool Grunge and She Loves You made this gritty image possible.

Or only grow R. "Zehphyrine Drouhin" :-)

That looks really old. In first instance you think of an old photo or catalogue. Cleverly done. With the hint of lace.

I love those blue ball jars--I can't ever seem to find them. I keep looking. Lovely processing. I love the grune with the softness of the flower.

Lisa said...

Orange and blue are such marvelous compliments. Your photo is very lovely!

Very beautiful image! and the quote is so true. I just cut back my roses yesterday and tore a hole in my jeans and cut up my hands quite a bit even with gloves on!
