Already on May 19, I did introduce you to this remarkable artist, as I posted this: LOOK who's in the French Style of May/June 2011. Janny van der Vliet is Dutch but she lives in France. I was so thrilled to find her in an early May, 2009 issue from the Dutch magazine Ariadne at Home. Pieter's niece and Goddaughter Myriam did bring the magazine when she came to the USA for his special birthday. Doing some searching I found Janny's French blog: Roses Pour Toujours and later the English version: Paper Roses Old Style. Just click on all the hyperlinks to learn more about this incredible lady and her Paper Roses!
Well, she did mail me a white paper rose (my choice...) as a special gift and it arrived in The Netherlands at our dear friends' home early September. I must admit that she also is an experienced shipper, as the rose was in perfect shape; she knows how to prevent any shifting or crushing. So in case you too would love to purchase a rose or even several roses, just ask her and she will take care of it. Now let me take you to our balcony where the sun was out after several rainy days. Yesterday I was lucky to find perfect light for capturing this beautiful Paper Rose for you. Enjoy!
With Belle Inspiration, I do say Ooh-la-la when it comes to ROSES, PEARLS and more ROSES...
Some Gypsophylla or Baby's Breath in a French Gien Rose pitcher creates a lovely setting for this perfect paper rose from Janny!
On a tablecloth that I made out of a twin sheet from Le Jacquard Français bed linens with peach roses...
I will leave you now without any text... just enjoy this pretty rose.
She has a faint pink blush, from all her surroundings I guess, but it is a pure white one!
Besides, it is the FIRST Paper Rose from Janny that has made it into the New World; all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to the USA!!!
Pour moi au moins est certaine ROSES POUR TOUJOURS... et MERCI Janny!
For me certainly ROSES FOREVER...
