A Rose Is A Rose Jul 2017

I don't know if I've done many pages on my love of films - particularly older ones (1930 - 1969 - I always extend to 1969 to get in movies like The Sound of Music and some later Audrey Hepburn films, but consider personally anything after Jaws as a modern film!) but when I saw the Kraft challenge 'Roses Three Ways' july 2017 all I could think about was the 1952 movie Singing In the Rain and the song Moses Supposes or A Rose Is a Rose. Being winter here, I've watched a spate of my old films on the cold nights in front of the heater, and it just reminded me of the musicals I do love.  I like some musicals, but far from all, so I do not consider myself a Musical Buff. Musicals with too much singing and not enough story bore me to death.

To get the 'roses three ways' was actually a challenge. I used photos of real roses, then some petals I pressed and scanned that were from flowers at my Nan's funeral, a black mask of a rose and a leaf, an old vintage rose which I turned into a 'tattoo' on my face, some patterned paper with roses on it, and the wording from the Moses Supposes song. I also used rose twice in my title. So way more, in the end, than the three ways!
