Simple Celebrations :: Feast of St. Therese

Have you seen Jessica's Apple Roses this morning? Go peek at them, they are adorable! Her version was very simple; mine was not quite as simple as I would have liked. I didn't have any puff pastry on hand so I thought I could use a scone recipe that I have turned into quick cinnamon rolls before. It worked OK except that I forgot this recipe has a tendency to spread out as it bakes. 
And because the dough warmed up as I was rolling them, the later ones didn't hold their shape as well as the first ones. Our roses definitely looked like they fell from Heaven, but they were still lovely and delicious and made the house smell like fall!
Sunshine, who has developed quite a little friendship with St. Therese, put together our table decoration using some roses from our own rose bushes outside.

Happy Feast of St. Therese! 
Dear Little Flower, help me to always believe as you did, in God's great love for me,  so that I may imitate your "Little Way" each day.
