Your roses are beautiful. And I share the same granny-ish taste. I figure the people who don't like it are simply gauche, darling!I don't have any yellow roses to display on my blog so I updated my playlist last night to include "Mama liked the Roses" by Elvis. I couldn't come up with anything else. HA!Love,Julie
Oh, Sophie~ not 'grannyish'!Here in America, I think your style would be considered "girly", not "granny"! At least, that's how I think of it~ very, very feminine and light. Cheering and comforting to the feminine spirit!To answer your question, a driveway apron (and I didn't know about this, either, till the construction workers gave us the letter telling us) is the little section of the driveway that is also the public walkway. It kind of 'leads' you into your driveway, and ours are kind of shaped like an apron!
Those pictures are just too lovely for words...I love the dresses and the shoes and the flowers...I'll bet you win!
Great photos Sophie!! I'd love to see the rest of the entries~~I'll click on the link and maybe I'll find them?Michelle
Hi Sophie,What a delicious, glorious, flowery post!!!! Just love it all. By the way, I did the fairy gift draw and you are the winner. If you could email me with you favourite colour I will make a fairy just for you. Have a rosey week-end.Sandi x
Those dresses are just beautiful! I love the yellow rose theme and the soft colors you matched them with. And the shoes are lovely! Great pictures!
If your style is granny-ish, then I am in the retirement home with you! I love yellow orses - they amongst other things, symbolise friendship, an appropriate thing for blogging eh?Have a good weekend x
I love your yellow rose post. I did enlarge the photo and the shoes are precious. You're granny-ish style looks good to me.Thanks for stopping by to visit me. You're welcome back anytime.Rhonda

Oooo I should've known that you'd come up with something this gorgeous!! I love it! I'm with you about the shoes - so many darling old shoes but none to wear.

Love your photos Sophie.Those shoes are 'to die for'. They wouldn't fit my big feet either.Those dresses are sooo... pretty.Alison
Sophie, I had to enlarge every single photo because I did not want to miss a single detail. The gowns are just gorgeous. I noticed the pretty beaded hanger, too. All just beautiful~nicely done!!!
I do believe those shoes may fit me as I have small feet!! If you ever want to part with them!! Love the theme Mary
Oh my goodness yellow roses are just my absolute favourite thing and yet I've just realised I'm sure I don't have anything that even resembles a yellow rose in my home!! Crazy!!Loving your photos!love Alison x
Sophie - I love your shoes - and oh to be young and slim to wear those dresses and be a princess for a day.............. I have put the agents photos on of my house it looks so bare - post pack and tidy up for the look the tele says we should show. I am going to do corners of my home when I have got used to the cameraCatherine
Sophie, Oh, how sweet...I like your photos, even if I couldn't live with that look all the time. Looks like a sweet Victorian parlor. I have no yellow roses either. Rhoda
What a lovely post! The pictures are beautiful. I always enjoy your blog.

I'm digging it all! Really feminine and I'm glad you shared :)
What great photos. I just love roses on anything but I don't have many yellow ones - mine are often blue. They are great in any colour though.Cathy X
Your pink and yellow display is lovely! And I adore those shoes!!teaxo
I think if we had to have picked the winner from the amount of posts to their blog you would have won hands down!! You do know I had to finally break down and draw right? It was such a hard decision, I couldn't pick! I still like looking at these pics:-)Michelle
Oh fun, your roses are beautiful and romantic!Yes, feminine! That's it! If anyone thinks it is granny style, I think grannies are the best. Go grannies!I really love the shoes! You would make a great stylist!
I think your effort paid off handsomely - those pics are gorgeous!
So beautiful Sophie!!! You have some great, great stuff! And you did a great job arranging it all - you could definitely be a stylist for a fun magazine. So great!! And there's that perfume that I love so much - thanks again for the recommendation on that - I love it.alliewww.mycozyhome.typepad.com
