Happy Valentine's Day!


Hello everyone! This is the last Valentine post - I promise! As I said in my previous post, I won Terri's giveaway and got some cute Valentine things that I wanted to incorporate into my decorations. Terri, my daughter loves the bracelet and has been wearing it all week and she's wearing the socks today!




I put those cute heart shaped window clings on my dining room mirror. They work perfectly with the heart shaped banner!



As some of you saw in the post below, I used one of the signs in my centerpiece on my dining room table



I added the heart to the two I already had. I had wished I had bought three instead of two so this worked out perfectly!



Look how pretty that sign she sent looks with my red transferware - it's just perfect!


Some of you have seen this from last year, but this is one of my most treasured items because Penny Lavender Hill Studio made it for me!



Isn't it just gorgeous! She is such an amazing artist. She used my favorite transferware plate as inspiration.





I hope each of you has a lovely Valentine's Day! The winner out of the people that said they would like the "Welcome Friends" decal is Kelly Simplistic Treasures. Kelly if you would email me a address I will get this out to you next week and I hope you show us where you put it!

Beautiful! I've thoroughly enjoyed your Valentine posts. In fact, I just posted piX (here) of a project we tried, inspired by YOU!!! The piXies and I made our very own Valentine tree ~ even diXymister got in on the act. We had a ball and it turned out pretty cute.

ThanX so much for the inspiration. Happy Valentine's Day!

Lady Katherine said...

Wow! How long was I a sleep???? I missed a lot of your posts! They are so great! Just lovely ideas your always have. I love the bell, I been looking for a few to make a candle chandy. Love the Be Sweet sign. The Mosaics is so pretty! One of these days I going to give it a try! Just got home from the Auction, my friend in a small town, she is the police cheif, My daughter called today and was in that town in a thrift store that is closing, wanted me to come, well I was scared as I only drove 10 min. so far, plus there is that little card thing. She told me not to worry she would handle it. Found out a place closer to take care of the little card. lol My daughter, bought me pink rose dishes and tea cups, well I paid. Not seen them yet. I bought a Johnson Bro. Rose Chintz creamer, for $1 at the auction, and a set of wheat dishes with serving pieces for $20, wish I had not bid. Oh well, Make a great fall table, lol or maybe someone will want it. I sure been wanting the Red Tranferware, but I saw a set of red toile, and loved it. Your garage looks like my attic! lol Oh dishes can go there! lol Happy Valentine's!
