June means Roses!

It's time once again for the Etsy Blogger carnival - I've been planning on writing a post all week and kept getting side tracked! So once again I'm being a bad girl and writing mine at the VERY last minute! This week's theme is:

1) Schools Out For Summer! What are your summer plans or share your favorite end of the school year story.
or
2) June symbols - June's birthstone is the pearl or moonstone. June's flower is the rose. Share your favorites or stories or blog on June symbols of your own.

Well since my store NAME is Rose Works Jewelry - it's only appropriate that I focus on roses don't you think? 

I've always loved roses. Which is kind of odd since I grew up a total tom-boy. Of course, while we're on that subject, it's rather odd that the tom-boy grew up to be a jewelry artist...

I don't know what it is about roses that draws me too them, I just always have been! I think part of it is just how many petals they have nestled in there. I've been teaching myself to draw, and if I ever get to the point where I can draw that beauty I'll be sooo ecstatic you have no idea! 

Looking in my shop...I actually don't have anything with roses at the moment! I need to fix that... So here are a couple of great finds from Etsy that are roses :D

Tomboys can like flowers too :) I've always said I'm the type of girl who puts on a dress and goes and plays in the mud...the best of both worlds :)

I love that top necklace btw!

Lol, that makes two tomboys made into jewelry artists- guilty as charged! Your rose items are very pretty. Great choices and I hope you have a great namesake month in your stores :)
