{LOOK who's in the French Style of May/June 2011}

For quite a while I've wanted to introduce you to the romantic blog Roses Pour Toujours from Janny van der Vliet about her fabulous, like real paper roses! She has been perfecting her art over the past ten years, by studying and observing the real roses, especially the old roses. English and French bourbon roses are her favorites.
Since 2005 she's living in the south of France and that's when she started her workshops. Still she is giving workshops in The Netherlands, her native country. She just got back from a workshop in the town where my husband Pieter is born; in Groessen. The world is small isn't it?! Let me show you some of her creations right here below. It is part of the May/June issue of Belle Inspiration - French Style - Celebrating La Joie de Vivre.
Janny's roses in the Days of the Roses held every May in Avignon, France.
Isn't her work incredible?! And so real looking...

  3. Hallo Mariette,
    du findest in der Bloggerwelt immer die außergewöhnlichsten Talente. Die Rosen sind wirklich phantastisch. Bei dir gibt es immer etwas zu entdecken!
    Schöne Grüße, Johanna

  4. Ja leuk hé..ik heb zondag de workshop bij haar gevolgd,was super om te doen.

    Volgend jaar komt ze in Limburg, en ik denk dat ik dan weer ga...
    Ze is een goede lerares, geduldig, laat iedereen in zijn waarde. rustig en lief.
    Het was ontzettend leuk om te doen.
    Mijn creaties staan op mijn blog Schunsland, maar zijn bijlange na niet zo mooi als die van haar.
    Een vakvrouw, kan niet anders zeggen.

  5. dear mariette, a kiss for you lory

  6. Goed zo !Erg leuk !! Hup Holland, hup, :-)))))
    Wij Nederlanders kunnen toch best wat, vind je niet!!

  7. Bonjour Mariette,
    Janny is so talented and such a nice person. I am looking forward to meeting her soon. Thank you for posting about this!
    WIshing you a good day,

  8. Oh Mariette, You're so loveable to show the article, you did it very beautiful. It will me stimulate to create more roses.And what about that lovely french music, that's why I love France as well.

    Thanks a lot dear Mariette,


  9. Hi Mariette, what beautiful roses! and roses in these outfits look expectaculares! beautiful, the rose will always cause for celebration! There is much to see in your posts, thanks! hugs, Rose Marie

  10. How gorgeous, Mariette,

    Beautiful work of art and I"ll stop by her site from time to time.
    Makes me feel, if only I knew French.
    Lots of Love, Orchid

  11. Every time I visit I'm inspired. In the garden or not. Nice.

  12. Hello Mariette! I miss your visits to my blog, you always have such wonderful comments:) I've heeded your advice a lot lately and when I buy items that are truly vintage I leave them in their current state...it really does add warmth and beauty. If it's a gold plastic thing I bought at Big Lots then I go ahead and paint it but you really struck when I 'almost' painted some lovely frames! Thank you for that advice:)

    Anyway, those roses are gorgeous!

  13. Dear Mariette,

    What gorgeous roses and such a very talented Lady.
    They are so real and many thanks for telling us about her and the lovely roses she makes.
    It really is a small world isn't it.

    Have a happy weekend

  14. Mariette, these are gorgeous. It is hard to believe but I think Jenny's roses are more beautiful than real. It would be a dream come true to attend one of her workshops, especially in Paris. Let me dream don't wake me. Thanks for sharing. I won't be posting until after Saturday when my family returns to Nashville. In the meantime it will be checking in. Have a good weekend. Ginger

  15. Good morning dear Mariette,
    Incredible artist...I love Jenny's rose, pink ones are delicious!

    Thank you for your very kind comment, fortunately I came back wanting to make and sew...

    Have a nice day and an happy week end, kisses

  16. Liebe Mariette,

    das ist faszinierend.

    Herzliche Grüße
    Angela und Elisabeth

  17. JAJA wij Nederlanders bint zo gek nog niet hihi :D. Maar ze zijn echt prachtig en idd..net echt.

    Liefs van Marian

  18. Thank you for the inspiration....
