Painting The Roses Red
Alice found herself in a beautiful garden, among bright flower beds, cool fountains, and a bush of brilliant white roses. Yet three gardeners, shaped like playing cards --the two, five, and seven of spades-- were busily painting the white roses red. They were quite sloppy painters too, dripping and splashing paint everywhere.
From the story of Alice in Wonderland OHM offers this rose bush heart of overlapping blooms colorfully, ahem, accented with red enamel paint as part of OHM’s Alice in Wonderland collection.
"Would you tell me," asked Alice timidly, "why you are painting those roses?"
"You see, Miss," said the Two of Spades, "this here ought to have been a RED rose bush, and we put a white one in by mistake; and if the Queen was to find it out, we should all have our heads cut off, you know!" Sure enough, a trumpet sounded, and a great procession of playing card soldiers (clubs), playing card courtiers (diamonds), royal family playing cards (hearts), and the King and Queen of Hearts all marched into the garden. The Queen immediately noticed the half-painted rose bush and cried, "Off with their heads!"
Happily, Alice hid the offending gardeners in a flower pot and they escaped execution. Every time you wear this lovely OHM Heart on your bracelet, you’ll be reminded that even as we all screw up sometimes it’s how we bounce back that defines our character. If you plant white roses by mistake; don’t lose your head, just paint ‘em red!
