Roses are Red, Violets are Blue
We will buy very pretty things
A-walking through the faubourgs
Violets are blue, roses are red
Violets are blue, I love my loves.
― Les Miserables, Fantine, Book Seven, Chapter Six
Sweet Violet Bride
Always a fan of letterpress printing, I swooned over these gilded elegant invitations at Oh So Beautiful Paper
Finally ending off with this charming quote:
"The splendor of the rose and the whiteness of the lily
do not rob the little violet of it's scent nor the daisy of its simple charm.
If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose, spring would lose its loveliness."
― Therese de Lisieux
