Skipping Into Spring

Two years old! This little shop of our has grown up. I can still remember driving by, with no intentions of starting a new venture, and spying a "for lease" sign in the window. The planter filled with weeds, a frayed awning, and the exterior painted a color of brown that shouldn't be sold. With all the hurdles that it would take, the flaws that would need attention, I couldn't shake the beauty and charm that could be. I imagined the lovelies inside and all the special visitors that would gather and create and inspire.

From this point on is when I stopped using the word 'I' and moved on to the 'we'. Friends and family jumped in with paintbrushes, soil, burlap, laughter! There is the saying 'it takes a village'--and this is so true. This shop has become all of us--workers, vendors, customers, visitors.

A special friend just had a Sound of Music birthday party and the songs have been swirling around the store, "The Hills are Alive", "Pretty White Dresses", "Brown Paper" etc, etc etc. This is what the store is singing too! We are alive with greens and all of our pretties, and of course, a song and dance.

It's no surprise that we adore Taylor from The Little Deer. Have you seen her blog? It is full of inspiration, beauty, and style...oh, the style! Taylor helps us at The Rose from time to time with styling. She has such a great eye!

Speaking of style, would you look at her?! The polka dot top is from The Rose and boy does she make it look good!! See where her other pieces are from, here.

OLÉ!

There is no suprise here at The Rose, that we can find a reason to celebrate a season or an event
with all of the spring and summer music festivals, concerts and holidays on the horizon.

We thought that we better get on the outfit hunting and do the work for you!
Cinco de mayo is upon us--which is when us Americans like to celebrate the Mexican eats and drinks (did someone say chips and guac??), so we are ready to outfit and set the atmosphere.

The details and color in the embroidery are perfectly perfect!

We have taken a few of the traditional dresses and hemmed them to the perfect length.

When you see these, you can really tell the difference in the vintage pieces from the now produced pieces.The cotton and the embroidery floss is much heavier and rich.


For spring/summer, we have been picking up our 'always in stock' boots in colors!
We still have the beautiful browns and blacks, but added a splash of color when we can.

It could be the 70's in us, or the fact that we love the fabric bags, cottons, wools, colors, slings, love love love!

Great colors in woven blankets, leather hats, long layered necklaces...we are stocked.
These wonderful mohair covered chairs have just been reduced to $40 each! Great extra seating with style. OLÉ!

The wildflowers have begun to show and daylight savings is upon us.

We think she's a beautiful painting for your dressing room or boudoir...
She looks like she's not sure what to wear either, but with a little help from Ruby Rose, she can transition from sweaters to soft pastels, floor length maxis and the perfect top for your favorite denim.
