Thank you for visiting 'Round the Rosies!

Back in 2011, when I started 'Round the Rosies, I was a new mom with a new baby girl. I left my career in the corporate world to devote my time and energy and love to this spritely being.

As I navigated my new role as a stay at home mom, I found myself learning to appreciate the smaller, sweeter things in life. I watched my daughter discover grass for the first time, and smell her first flower... and I was starting to "smell the roses" again. This included reconnecting with my creative side, as well as my love of nature - both had always played a big role in my life, but had taken a back seat to the hustle and bustle of adulthood and all consuming work schedules. I traded in sitting in an office to sitting in the grass.

I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Dance, and have always dabbled in all things artsy and craftsy. But my biggest creative endeavor, my baby girl, inspired the first 'Round the Rosies item I ever made and sold. She was born with masses of unruly hair. I set out to create barrettes for her that were sweet, pretty, unique, and would STAY in her baby hair! When I discovered the wonderful world of wool blend felt, its warmth, and seemingly endless color options, I was hooked. I stitched it onto a barrette, crafted a rose and leaves to attach to it, and 'Round the Rosies was born. Along with our new go-to hair accessory :-)


The shop has now grown to include predominantly wedding flowers/accessories (thanks to my sister's request for the very first 'Round the Rosies boutonnieres) and home decor. My pieces are lovingly designed and handmade by me, with careful attention to detail. Every petal is cut and assembled by my two hands. I never tire of seeing the flowers seemingly bloom before my eyes, as I attempt to recreate the beauty of natural flowers, petal by petal. It is an honor for me to create items for the special times, and people, in your life. It is my hope that your 'Round the Rosies flowers will be a reminder to you to take a moment, smell the roses, and have a beautiful day!

Truly,
