Let the deep organ swell the lay,
In honor of this festive day.
Let the harmonious choirs proclaim,
Cecilia's ever blessed name.
This afternoon, after getting home from Mass, the girls had so much fun making a simple and sweet treat for the feast of St. Cecilia! We enjoyed listening to Cecilia, Saint of the Catacombs - The Story of Saint Cecilia to and reading a little more about this beautiful saint from Saints: Lives and Illuminations.

Aren't Rose and "Mia" so darling in their matching corduroy dresses?
The dresses arrived this week from Sew Sweet by Shannon and were sent as samples - along with some adorable Felt Breakfast Food - for hosting a giveaway here at Shower of Roses! (Thank you Shannon!)
Shannon is a 17 year old Catholic homeschool graduate who recently opened her shop over at Etsy! She offers modest clothing for girls and women, lovely tote bags, and much more! I immediately fell in love with all the beautiful and well-made items she sent and am already considering another dress for Rose (maybe in green?) and a couple of her tote bags for myself and oldest daughter.
Sew Sweet by Shannon has generously offered the following two prizes to the visitors here at Shower of Roses!
Please enter the giveaway below:
Cecilia with a two-fold crown,
Adorned in heaven we pray look down,
Upon thy fervent children here
And harken to their humble prayer.
Sancta Cecilia, Ora Pro Nobis!
