It's time for Valentines

Hello, Dear Ones! It's time...
It's time for a Valentine Post! I just love these little vintage Valentine cards, don't you? Well, that's Chloe Dawn and me! Pretending... :) Valentine love!


First I'd like to show you a heart wreath I found last year, I think, at Target on clearance! Those little berries look good enough to eat, don't they?


I've set up this little spot on my counter top in the kitchen. Lace, white and roses! Feel the Valentine love?

Now let's go into the breakfast room where I've put together a little tablescape of love! :) Valentine love! I've layered the table with a red tablecloth and threw the square lace over the top (this is the lace that was scrunched and it survived!) :)

Red and white = Valentine love! Did you know that? :)



I've set the table with some dishes I found last year at a thrift shop. They're rather olden. I love the sweet little pattern with the garlands of flowers between the dark red (more like burgundy) bands. The pattern is Brittany by Homer Lauglhin.


Plate rims = Valentine love!

There were no dinner plates with the set but little breakfast plates. I'm supposing that is what you call them ~ smaller than dinner plates but bigger than salad/dessert plates! Regardless, they are saying Valentine love! :)

Then supporting all the dishes are these pretty creamy chargers I found at Marshalls a while back. Creaminess of chargers = Valentine love.

Since my breakfast table is small, I poked these sweet little embroidered napkins into the juice glasses. Oh, did I tell you? We're having a Valentine love breakfast!


Sweet little cups and saucers ready for your coffee or tea.


A few pieces of silverplate - definitely says Valentine love!


You can always have candlelight ~ Valentine love ~ even in the early morning!


Go ahead a take a seat!


Now if you will just peep over to your left you'll see my tiny little hutch. I've just replaced a few things to make it look a bit more like Valentine love!


Here's an old milk glass basket, I'm sure you've seen it before. I made the arrangement years ago and just have never changed it! I love it = Valentine love! :)


I've poked some red plates in here from Marshalls. Then I've poked in some Fruit Harvest plates by Spode. Red plates and fruit plates = Valentine love! :)



I poked in some vintage valentines among the plates and other pretties. More Valentine love.


Sweetness is abounding in here! Sweetness that belongs to that special day - Valentine's Day!
I just love Valentine love, don't you?

Would you, Dear Ones, please be my Valentine?

I joining Our Dear Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for Tablescape Thursday,
Our Dear Candy at The Little Round Table for her first The Colors of Love Party,
Our Dear Laurie at Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie for her Valentine Party
and

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

My Funny Valentine

My funny Valentine
Sweet comic Valentine
You make me smile with my heart
Your looks are laughable
Unphotographable
Yet you're my favourite work of art
Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
But don't change a hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day
Is your figure less than Greek
Is your mouth a little weak
When you open it to speak
Are you smart?
But don't you change one hair for me
Not if you care for me
Stay little Valentine stay
Each day is Valentine's day
~ sung by Frank Sinatra
