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...
