On the Feast of St. Cecilia :: A Sweet and Simple Treat


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.  


Can You Find Saint Cecilia? 


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!

  1. I couldn't choose just one favorite. I like the cupcake apron, the breakfast food, and the cute headbands. Rose and her doll look lovely in those dresses.

  16. This is perfect timing! I've been looking for long "twirly" skirts for my girls and just couldn't find what I liked. Shannon has some lovely ones and she's been so helpful finding the fabric I like. :) Thank YOU!! Of course, it'd be even better if I won something for myself. ;)

    1. Maybe this is a silly question, but will I need to enter the giveaway in the "Rafflecopter" box above, instead of just posting a comment down here? Or will my name still be included by simply commenting? Sorry, and thanks. : )

  25. Rose is so beautiful and I love her little dress and her sweet face looking at the St. Cecilia book!

    I was also wondering if you've ever read or looked at this book on Our Lady of Guadalupe? I was just curious if is was good for young children. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi Kari! No, I don't have that book, but I think Charlotte over at Waltzing Matilda might. I'm sure you could email her to ask about it. She gave our youngest some artwork by the same woman last Christmas.
