Victorian roses

I was very fortunate to inherit a few pieces of hand painted china - 
the colors are so soft and tend towards pink-reds and brownish greens
so I painted my own version of Victorian Roses
Here are 3 of my plates - the bottom two are cake plates with the ear handles
The one on the bottom right came from my grandmother's family
and the other two were given to me by my mother.
Such beauty and joy!
