Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours...

Happy Valentine's Day and Happy Pink Saturday!  As we prepare to share a day of love with our spouses, boyfriends, and significant others, I thought I would share a little of my home decor with you.  The sweet little bisque doll above has her quiver at the ready just for our special romantic day.


I just purchased this incredible hand painted Limoges trinket box from the amazingly talented china painter, Sara Miesner of Our Cottage Garden.  Although this beauty resides with me, you can find similar items here.

Colorado Springs artist Stan Awbry painted this most delicious cherub and roses painting.  It resides in my pretty parlor.  He really has the spirit of the Victorian rose painters down-and he's a guy!  Go figure...

These little sweeties grace a bookshelf that, until last week, held primitive salt glazed crocks.  I think this better reflects who I am right now.  I smile everytime I look at these little darlings...


Lastly, I have made up this pink wooden heart that is covered with a mosaic of vintage china and one of my original collages under glass.  It brings a smile to me every time I look at it and, if it makes you smile too, it can be purchased here.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day with your special someone.  Before you do though, be sure to pop by Bev's place at How Sweet the Sound and check out the other Pink Saturday participants.  It should be an awesome week to make the rounds!

Until next time,

Pin It!


  1. Hi Judy,
    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. Now, I know about you and I can come visit you too. I signed to be a follower and I think your blog is beautiful.

    So is your Valentine post. Such pretties to brighten a rather gloomy looking morning here in the coastl south. We got snow which is almost unheard of here!

    Enjoy your weekend.


  2. Wow from crocks to cherubs in less than a week. You sure don't let any grass grow under your feet! All of it is beautiful, but I love the "replacement"!

  3. Hi Judy! I love your mosaic heart! What a wonderful piece. The little porcelain cupid is adorable. He has such a cute little face! I hope you have a lovely Valentine's Day. Terri

  16. What WONDERFUL decor you have....I love it that many are hand created by artists!

    I hope you had a great Pink Sat. and a wonderful Valentine's Day! Dana

  17. Hi Judy,

    Love all your beautiful Valentines treasures, the little bisque doll is cute.
    I hope that you had a wonderful day and enjoy your week.


  18. Judy... dropping back by to say thanks for the visit! I'm trying to visit quickly before I'm computerless. Looking through your lovely pictures again made me aware of how much I love limoge. Truly, France produces some of the prettiest china in the world. My mother and grandmother didn't believe that anyone made more beautiful china. Both had Haviland. While I have some family pieces as well as some other limoge with which I fell in love, I also love English china... but those French roses... oooh la la! They're the most romantic of all. But then, isn't France the most romantic country in the world?

    And that little kewpie is SO cute!

    Hope your Valentine's Day was lovely...
