A Rosette Book!

Have I mentioned my love of rosettes? Well, they have been a reoccuring theme in almost everything I do. Here are some examples:

Four  rosettes in one vintage paper collection...all of which I made from vintage ledger paper at one time or another.

A couple of button brooch rosettes...


These hang from the vintage map in my dining room. 


Needless to say, I was sooo excited to see this blog post by Cathe Holden! I can't believe there is going to be an entire book about rosettes. It comes out in May of 2013 and I will be was first in line to pick it up. Actually, it is on presale right now, so you could buy it today!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend and make some beautiful rosettes!


  1. Oh Alison, you and I are going to be very good friends over these rosettes!! Thanks so much for pre-purchasing my book so far out. You have no idea how exciting that is for me with this, my very first book. Your rosettes are so fantastic! May is soooo far away, but since this rosette book idea all started in the fall of 2011 with my presentation to Chronicle Books, a few more months won't kill me. Please be in touch when you receive your copy!

    1. Cathe, Thanks so much for checking out my blog. I really cannot tell you how excited I am about your book! You really create beautiful pieces- I have pinned quite a few of them.
      Congratulations on your book- I am really looking forward to getting it!
