Oil on canvas, painted by my father-in-law...

This Sunday's prompt for Our Beautiful World is Romantic, chosen by me. 
I'll share with you some photos of objects that I find romantic.

Pressed glass, over 60 years old, herited from my mother
Rosa rugosa 'Snow pavement'
Crazy quilting made by me

Paris is a romantic city.
Albert Edelfelt is one of our most famous painters.
He lived and worked in Paris in the late 1800.
Virginie was his model and mistress - but their lovestory did not have a happy end.
Virginie was an amazing book taking me to romance and Paris!

A romantic collage for Mosaic Monday!
It would be lovely to see your idea of romantic!

The next Sunday's topic is BLOOM.
You are most welcome to join!

Mosaic Monday

Enjoy your week!

      @ Sarah ---- Thank you for your comments! I don't consider myself as a very romantic person but roses and Paris are always ♥♥♥

  7. So romantic, your beautiful images are making me swoon! I shall have to see if I can get a copy of the book, Virginie. Love the Snow Pavement rose, so beautiful.
    MM is experiencing a few teething problems this week, possibly because I'm in a strange location (the UK Midlands)and the internet is slooow! So glad you were able to join in this week.

    1. Maggie, sad to say that Virginie is only available in Finnish and is now sold out. It was a fascinating book and told also a lot about France and women's unindependent position at that time - women were practically owned by men. Thank you for your comment.

  8. I agree --- Romantic wins the day! Gorgeous images. Love your crazy quilting and the gorgeous oil painting by your Father in law ... what treasures! Happy Monday! Have a great week!

  9. Ritta, thanks for sharing your romantic images. I love the chandelier, the flowers and the book. Sylvia D.

  10. Lovely romantic images - crystal and roses, lace and books - beautiful things. Hope there's some romance in your new week.

  11. How lovely and what a wonderful idea for mosaics! I am a romantic at heart and would love to do a post like this sometimes. Thank you for always inspiring us. Sweet hugs, Diane
