There's a New Snob In Town: Meet Rose

"What a shame that my sister Lily can't be as lovely as me," Rose thought, as she admired her own grace and beauty.
---
The lovely Miss Rose should really think twice about comparing herself to her equally lovely sister. But never worry, she'll get her just desserts. No one likes a snob, after all.

Until I added the lovely Rose this afternoon, I haven't added a new snob to the shop since Elegant Snobbery opened last January. The original illustration belongs to my fabulous friend Casey of Fields of View Photography, who ordered Rose, as well as a soon-to-be sister snob called Lily (if you are imagining a lovely blonde, curly haired snob with a fabulous hair-do featuring a Stargazer Lily, well, you would be right) inspired by her daughters Anwyn Lily and Moya Rose.

I think Rose has a lovely sweet, yet snobby face.

With a garden filled with lavender roses (to match her hair, of course - shouldn't gardens always match one's hair?) and an ink butterfly flying about.

And I just love the sleeves with that fabulous beaded trim. I don't wear purple (makes my olive skin go sallow) but if I could wear it, I'd love a dress like this one.

So, despite the fact that this is a custom job and prints of custom orders don't end up in my shop (as they are for the buyer and the buyer alone to enjoy!) Casey and I have worked out that I'm going to have limited Rose and Lily illustrations in my shop and I'm very excited because I LOVE them! Well, I love the finished Rose and the sketch of Lily who will be finished this week.

So come on over to Elegant Snobbery and say hello to Rose, who can be found in 8 x 10 and 11 x 14 print sizes. She will probably ignore you, though, and consider herself well above the likes of you. She isn't the sweetest of snobs, despite her lovely face.

Enjoy!

xoxo,

I love her!!! She looks like she's giving a full turn-my-face-from-you pouty rejection. As if some guy is trying to say he's sorry and he brought some crappy roses to her, and -really- roses just wouldn't do. She'll have to keep that pouty face turned until he brings back flowers worthy of her...
