I've been getting ready for Valentines Day...its our wedding anniversary, so I'm really partial to hearts!
I put the table runner that I made last year, out in my sewing room, where I could share it with my friends.
I've been making lace heart decorations with my embroidery machine in there!
In the dining room, I've set out my Royal china "Quban Royal" gold rimmed plates (22K), all ready for a special dessert that I have planned. I'll share the recipe with you very soon. It is very easy & VERY GOOD!
The bakers rack in the kitchen is festooned with lots of red & pink! My Ralph Lauren cake plate is threaded for the occasion, just waiting to hold that special treat. I have some happy Valentines Day paper plates ready to serve the grandkids cookies, in case they stop by before the official holiday.
Isn't my little mouse ADORABLE?
He was a gift from my friend... Thank you, Carol!! I just love him to pieces &have nicknamed him "Valentino". I think he is supposed to be a pin cushion but I could never stab him with a pin...he's too CUTE!
There are hearts everywhere!
Heart shaped baking dishes to hold PINK cuppies...
I have lots of pink & white paper heart doilies around the house. They make me happy & bring back fond memories of grade school Valentines.
I brought out my Waterford crystal heart that I carried home from our trip to Ireland. Of course, there HAD to be some conversation hearts available, too. It wouldn't seem like Valentines Day without those!
My husband calls my granddaughter, (Ms. C.) "Sweetie Face".
I bought special Valentine colored M&M's just for her. I have them in one of my Mother's vintage milkglass compotes.
The apothecary jar in the kitchen is filled with lots of big, puffy heart shaped marshmallows, just waiting for a visit from her, so we can enjoy some hot cocoa together.
I wish you could join us!
