Roses in the Snow

Believe it or not, this post springs from the Challenge to Challenge. Lizzy Plantagenet gave me a rosebush and snow. For this challenge, I kinda cheated, but it IS my blog afterall…lol. Seriously though, this reminded me of a song that I hadn’t thought about in ages. It’s one of those haunting songs that stays with you long after you listen to it.

Nico – Roses in the Snow

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently, you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
And you know that it was like this before we had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
Until you feel this way

With every moon
It is as though you’re getting closer to your soul
And then you go alone, and with no fear
Then you will know that it was like this before he had to go
And you will find that you were blind
Until you saw these lights
Glowing in your nights

He came your way and when he had to go
There were roses growing in the snow
Silently you’ll go through the shadow of your soul
But you know it was like this before he had to go

You will never see these lights
Glowing in your nights
If you don’t know
And there are roses growing in the snow

Crazy Weather

My friend, Adalynne, responded to my Challenge to Challenge post. She suggested snowflakes and rainbows. My first response was, “You hate me!” I haven’t been into rainbows since I was a child and they are generally associated with unicorns. I’ve never liked unicorns…ever. I thought about it for a moment then I realized she was merely referring to the weather in Alabama. You see, she lives about 30 minutes away from me and we experience the same weather. If the weather man so much as suggests snow, the stores are evacuated of all their bread, milk, and eggs. For the life of me, I can’t figure out why everyone wants to make french toast when they think there’s a snowstorm coming, but that’s what happens. What’s even funnier is that it rarely does snow and when it does it melts by noon…that’s when we get the rainbow. Thus, snowflakes and rainbows is a perfect way to describe Alabama weather. In your face, AdyCakes! *giggles*

Menus & Electric Heaters

This place didn’t have an extensive menu, but what they did have was simply delicious. It was a food truck permanently parked on a small peninsula off the coast of Achill Island What she loved the most was that they has hooked up small electric heaters between all the tables so even on a cool day like today, you could eat outdoor and be comfortable. She was especially grateful for this today as she planned to meet her dear friend, Grace, for lunch. It had been far too long since they had sat down and dished.

In My Head

So, if you relate the first bit of lyrics below, click the link and you can sing along, read along, or just listen to the rest of the song. I’m not much in the mood to talk about my feelings at the moment, but the song is a clue for those that care. I don’t really expect anyone to…so its another post with lyrics. It’s 4am and this is where I am in my head.

“I know it’s not the same
But I feel it any way
Tell me if that’s okay
No, I’ll be on my way
Should’ve known, now I feel insane
Am I insane?
I’ve waited way too long
Yeah, I know you’ve changed
You have a different face to me
I guess that I was wrong
I’m the one to blame
And that’s a shame, you see
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head
And I keep on forgettin’
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re here instead
And it seems never ending
Uhh-uh-uh-uhh, I know, I know you’ve changed
You don’t feel the same
Uhh-uh-uh, you’re in my head…”

Find the light

This entire song has been one of those songs that I’ve related closely to from the very first time I heard it. There’s a weird sense of comfort in surrendering myself to the pain accompanied by lyrics. I didn’t list all of the lyrics, just the first punch. This is one of those songs that just…well…give it a listen sometime and if you really hate the melody, maybe just google the lyrics and read them over. *shrugs* Do what you want, I know I do. *forces a smile*
“Yesterday was the tornado warning, today is like the morning after
Your world is torn in half, you wake and let’s wait to start the morning process
Rebuilding and you’re still a work in progress
Today is a whole new chapter, it’s like an enormous ass
The thunderstorm has passed ya
Your weather didn’t poke his eyes out with the thorn bush that you
Used to smell the roses, stopped to inhale can’t even tell your nose is stuffed
So focused on the brightside, then you floor the gas pedal
And hit the corner fast, the more asserted
Never looking back, may hit the curb
But everyday is a new learning curve, as you, steer through life
Sometimes you might not wanna swerve
But you have to to avert a disaster, lucky, no permanent damage
Cause they hurt you so bad, it’s like they murdered your ass
And threw dirt on your casket, but you returned from the ashes
And that hurt that you have, you just converted to gasoline
And while you’re burning the past, standing at inferno and chant
I’m standing in the flames
It’s a beautiful kind of pain
Setting fire to yesterday
Find the light, find the light, find the light”

Cold as November

“Oh I say you’re as cold as November
You left when I was crying
And I was crying every time you left
Oh but ain’t it kind of funny how you weren’t laughing when I left
So who’s the real king of pain?”
~ Devil Doll – Queen of Pain

I had to have some fun with this look. I just love the fun, versatility of this dress. Accessories and shoes will determine how it is interpreted. Standing in the abandoned warehouse backdrop…well, I had to do something a little twisted. Afterall, these poses were named after me.

Hidden Treasure

Have you ever played one of those hidden clue games? There’s several on Facebook, plenty of apps for phones, etc. You find the hidden objects and progress through the story. The picture with the hidden objects usually reflect that particular part of the story. Well, when I initially started setting up this scene….I ended up chasing squirrels all over the internet. What started out as a squirrel’s Halloween party quickly turned into a hidden object picture. Except, you don’t have to find them, they are all listed below with slurls so that you can go grab your own fun Halloween and Autumn decor! Happy shopping!♥

Roses and Me

I think I have a strangle love/hate relationship with roses. I’ve never been a big fan of them, because I found them quite commercial and too cliche’. My mother has always loved them and whenever she’s been able to have a garden, she has had rose bushes of various types over the years. I don’t particularly like the smell, nor am I all that fascinated with any type of botany, much less roses. My favorite flower has always been the Gerber daisy, they’re hard to grow (at least for me) and they don’t last too long in a vase either. Fake ones are never mistaken for real ones and I find them to be much more special and alluring. However, with all of that said, the older my mom and I get, the more I appreciate the things she loves…like roses. I don’t want to wait until she’s gone to appreciate something she loves. So, more and more, I’ve found myself smiling upon the sight if roses.

Though you can’t see them super well in the photo below, Dahlia did these amazing tins with roses on top for the Sept round of TLC. I was so excited by them, that I had to include them in this post. You can bet you will see them again and again, as they are the perfect touch for every room in the house.
