Rose Petals

Hello Friends!

And welcome to the first in a series I will be doing
featuring photos from my Romantic Living Magazine
article about my good friend, Rose Hicks.

I shot hundreds of photos, and the magazine only used 8,
so you can well imagine that I have a lot to share!

Without further ado, here are some
unpublished shots
of my friend Rose's lovely home...

{ double click all photos to super-size }

 Isn't Rose's style just
timeless beauty personified?

If you'd like to see more,
please be sure to enter my big giveaway!

 One lucky follower will win a copy
of the new special publication
from the editors of Romantic Homes, Romantic Living,
featuring my article and photos
of Miss Rose Hicks herself.

Personally autographed  by Rose herself,
I might add!

Anne-What phenomenal photos. I can only imagine how great the 8 must be that they chose to use.

Love the comical pile of cast-off shoes! xo Diana

Oh Anne....such dreamy photos!
I am crazy in love with the pic of all that vintage doll house furniture lined up on the windowsill. And the tattered purse with the old photo....Just gorgeous! :)

Gail said...

Lovely! I keep looking for the magazine and can't find it on the stands anywhere around here! So frustrating but I'll keep looking....;)

Bliss said...

Thinking if anyone told me someone had an artistic display of a bunch of shoes tossed rather randomly and it looked beautiful, I would think "really?" But there is the proof - it can be done!


Blondie's Journal said...

You have worked your magic with your camera once again!


lisa Moran, Bilancia Designs said...

The little silk purse with the coin purse inside is my favorite. BEAUTIFUL! And the shoes....oh my....
You capture pure MAGIC with your camera, Anne.
What incredible talent you have.
Huge hugs! xoxo

Blessed Serendipity said...

I just love her style. I remember seeing her on HGTV many years ago. She was ahead of her time with her decorating style then. I can't wait to see a copy of Romantic Living.


Parisienne Farmgirl said...

What a look you create with that lens girl!

Have a wonderful week!

Boxwood Cottage said...

Your sweet Lady Rose is not known here in Germany, but I think she really should be for her lovely vintage style! I'm sure she's published in books too, right? Can you recommend one?

Shabbyfufu said...

Beautifully done....I have not heard of her before but will be nice to read the magazine in person and in hand. Which BTW I was asked to do a little DIY piece for that issue. Do you know if it's in there? I totally forgot about it, lol until I saw your post! xo

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Oh my goodness gorgeous!!

Beautiful photos, Anne ~ the harp shot makes me want to sit down and play, if only I could play a harp!

Judy said...

The picture of the bed just made my day! Where did Rose get the linens? I love those! Would look great on my bed. Also loved the bowl full of well-loved books and the wood doggie! I picked up a copy of Romantic Living a few days ago and have already been through it several times. Love it!!

About Vintage French Hen said...

Hi Anne, I just saw this magazine in our grocery store this evening! Loved it. The pictures were gorgeous, unfortunately my husband was with me and he has no idea I will pay ten bucks for a magazine! Next time.

Tracie~MyPetiteMaison said...

Hi Sweetie,
I'm coming by tonight to tell you how much I enjoyed the article and the beautiful photos. I was especially touched by Rose saying that she doesn't follow fads and is happy with the way things are in her home and also her saying that's just the way old people are. It's wonderful as a true artist and designer she's comfortable in what she loves and it really gave me a heads up personally just do have what I love and be comfortable with it... something I am finding with age as well.

Thank you for a beautiful piece, dear Anne, you know I think you're amazing. You are blessed to have Rose as a dear friend. I told you before, but I loved the HGTV special of her home and the many with Carol Hicks Bolton as well (well, the whole family).
xoxo~from me
