Happy Valentine's Day weekend! I thought I would, predictably, share a little Valentine's Day love from my home to yours. The first photo is my dining room centerpiece. It is normally under a cloche, but I still haven't learned how to adequately take a photo of a cloche without glare and everything. I am open to suggestion so all of you top notch photographers out there (and there are MANY of you), feel free to give me some hints. But I digress. Anyway, that piece that is normally under the cloche but for today is not under the cloche is a Goldbug Studios piece (Ashley Carter-awesome artist). I normally can't afford her stuff, but last year, Earth Angels Toys had a significant sale on several things, this sweet Valentine's piece being one of them. I scooped it up faster than you can say "CHARGE IT!". I leave it out all year round although not usually in such a prominent place as plopped in the middle of my dining room table.
Sort of sappy sweet, but I do love my little faux cookies. I bought them several years ago from a gal on eBay. I think her name was Rhonda, but I can't recall her seller name. They are, in my humble opinion, some of the prettiest ones I've seen. I chose to display them in my very old bride's basket. You can't see them, but under the cookies are cherubs engraved on the basket part. Somehow, just knowing they are there makes me feel a little more "Valentiney". I know, I'm a goof.
I love vintage Valentine's Day cards. I use them a lot in my decorating. I don't do too much over the top decorating for Valentine's Day, but I do try to put at least some of my little cards out here and there. Here are a few that begged me to be featured in today's post.
I hope you enjoyed the little peek into my world. It's getting pretty late, but I'm going to head over to Beverly's place at How Sweet the Sound and link up to Pink Saturday. I'll bet there's loads of pretty pink Valentine's over there. Why don't you join me?
Until next time,
