Heart of Roses

This little heart treasure box is one of my little finds since starting “Rose Petals from Heaven” Blog.

I have no idea how or when “roses” took over my life.

They  just “happened”.

Perhaps it is because my Dad’s patron Saint is St. Therese?

Or perhaps it is because my mother is devoted to Our Lady?

Or it could have began when my husband planted me a beautiful rose garden as a surprise for me years ago for my birthday.

Looking back I see that roses have always been of symbol of unconditional love in my life and this treasure box exemplifies that.

What a sweet little box. I can understand how that would inspire you. Your husband planted you a rose garden? That's probably the most romantic thing I've ever heard. You lucky girl!

Roses from a heart jewel box; it is beautiful and so are you. Love your blog background and scrolling down with rose petals on a lawn, feels like I'm walking through them with you and Our Lord is with us too -- Terri www.morningdewdrops.typepad.com -- Happy Valentine's Day
