Getting into Halloween

October thirty first again, so allow me to wish you all a Happy Halloween! 


Here at Pale Rose we are not big fans of all things spooky, scary or bloody. Still, I did make a little something to hang on the wall (or the blackboard to be precise). In honor of Halloween & our cat Charlotte really got into dressing up in costume !!! She's so cute...

About an Anniversary



Being married to your best friend is simply magical. Now, you know I'm not married myself & that hasn't changed since we last spoke ;) But my parents have been married for many years. Today they are celebrating being Mr & Mrs, as it's their anniversary...

Baking & the Apple of my Eye



Here she is sitting beside the pomegranate candle holder. The apple of my eye, my Apple Charlotte :) I've been calling her that a few times now & I guess it started because I saw this cookery program on TV...

A Soldier for my Birthday


Good Morning and Happy Birthday to me :D

I woke up early, as always and Charlotte was the first to greet me. Don't think she realized that I just added another year to my life. As I'm not a fan of Birthdays, or at least my own, that's perfectly ok with me. Presents are wonderful but unnecessary, we all know that the best gifts come from the heart anyway. This year however I got an amazing gift!!!  A soldier from Denmark, don't we make a cute couple?? ;) ...

Doctor I'm Smitten


"To brighten up our day we need a dash of Jane, wouldn't you say?" Those words I said to Mom this morning, when it was still chilly and I could tell the painkillers hadn't started to do their job. I always feel better after a dose of Jane. I get that dreamy nostalgic feeling of : oh how lovely it must have been back then. Though on second thought it is perhaps even lovelier to have proper heating & a television...

Sibling Sunday


Got out of bed early on Sunday and hit the shower before anyone else could claim it first. Dressed with care and applied some make-up. Looked at the clock a couple of times, but no matter how often you glance. Or how much you wish to push the arrows further along, time has its own pace. You can do nothing but accept it's rhythm...

Orange, Grey & Hooray


I often think it's strange how the sight of something can influence your mood, don't you? Think a puppy runing down the street. Or a child eating an ice cream that melts... Makes you smile doesn't it. The last couple of days it has been grey skies all around & loads of rain coming down. Many a moment, when glancing out the window, did I feel a little less than my cheerful self.

Like the weather changing in a blink, so my sadness drifted away by the sound of the doorbell. Wearing his bright coat, transforming the glass in Pale Rose's front door from light grey to sunshine yellow...

Stuck with a Bug & a Secret



Many artist have these periods or phases in which they are caught up with something. That can be a subject, or people and sometimes it's with color. I don't wish to claim that mom and me are artists, but we do have those type of phases. In which we are taken with something, experimenting and creating, trying to perfect it. Lately we have been stuck with a bug...

Catching up with Autumn





The garden has changed so much. From all shades of green, to bright reds, orange and yellow. When we walked round in it this week I noticed that Autumn arrived in every corner. It's probably my favorite season & inside our cottage we also surrounded ourselves with all things fall. Time to catch up...

Happy (almost) Animal Day


Ever since I was a little girl, I've been a BIG animal lover. I remember having a shelf full of stuffed animal toys. Books in which animals had wonderful adventures & loving nothing more than to watch animal documentaries on TV with Grandma. We've had many different pets over the years: Rabbits, Hamsters, Fish and a Guinea pig. A white canary and two amazing cats. Now we have our girls Charlotte + ChloĆ« to share Pale Rose. With world animal day coming up tomorrow, I decided to provide a little treat already...
